Fiona Stiles Is Low-Key Some Of The Best Makeup That’s Being Discontinued…

IMAG7784_1

 

When Fiona Stiles hit Ulta about…I wanna say maybe a year and a half ago? I was intrigued. I liked the look of the packaging, and the colour combinations looked interesting. But…I’d never heard of Fiona Stiles. Like who was this chick and why was I supposed to care that she had a makeup line now? The price point became the second issue for me. I’m not about to drop almost forty dollars on a single product from a brand that I know nothing about, that’s barely been reviewed. Nah.

@Ulta + NYX July Birthday Gift & Why We Should All Be Pissed

IMAG7989

 

I’ve stated repeatedly that if not for being able to find more of the high end brands that I prefer at Sephora and Sephora’s own collection, I’d probably shop at Ulta exclusively. They have a much better rewards programs, it’s light years ahead of Sephora’s. But I also like their high-end, low-end model because it’s a one stop shop. One of the programs that both retailers have and suck at is the birthday rewards program. Sephora has recently gotten marginally by better offering multiple choices, but it’s still geared towards pale people. Ulta? Well…

IT Cosmetics Confidence In Your Glow Blushing Bronzer.

IMAG0243_1

 

I like the idea of IT Cosmetics. The reality is often something else though for a couple of reasons. If you follow Jackie Aina on YouTube, she details how the foundations are too light for her. The one foundation she had been able to use, left her looking corpsey. I can use the last shade in most of their lines, Rich, pretty well. However I do get the grey cast that she talks about as well. The undertones on their foundation products for deeper complexions are…lacking.

Becca x Chrissy Teigen Face Glow Palette.

I was so excited when I heard that this palette was gonna be a thing. I mean, a brand that I appreciate and Chrissy Teigen team up to create a palette? Yeah, I’m there. Also, if you’re not following her on Twitter or Snapchat or Instagram, then I don’t know what to tell you about your life, cause she is hilarious!

I heard about the palette about two weeks before it dropped, and I was able to get it from Sephora a few days before it officially launched as an app exclusive offering. As with any highly anticipated launch there were all sorts of problems happening in the background. Pre-launch orders got cancelled before they shipped, cause apparently Lazership was breaking everything. Luckily mine came intact, albeit way later than a usual Sephora shipment.

NEW!! Jouer Cosmetics Limited Edition Spring Collection.

Since I’ve been trying to get posts back on the site after losing most of them, I haven’t been doing a whole lot of purchasing because I’ve been distracted. But like the Too Faced collection, I had actually set an alarm for this launch way ahead of time and was checked out of the website probably five minutes after it dropped. In fact I was done minutes before I received the official launch email from Jouer. *attempts to pat self on back and fails*

The collection is mostly rose gold themed and contains an eye shadow palette, two lip products in a rose gold shade and a powder highlighter also in, yeah, rose gold.

The lip cream is probably my least favourite so far, but I sort of knew that going in.

Jouer LE Mermaid Collection.

This is my first bonafide Jouer purchase. I remember that I got a lip gloss in a Glossybox some time ago, and while I thought it was ok, I didn’t run out and get a bunch of stuff from the brand because I wasn’t all that impressed cause, I’m not a gloss kinda chick. And real talk? It seemed like a real white identified line.

I’ve been eyeing a few things on the site though since some of my fave brown bloggers (@JackieAina and Danielle) seem to like them so…
