Hi Lovies. I wanted to post some quick swatches for everyone that was interested after these were previewed on Snapchat. La Splash Cosmetics has released a full range of glitters and they scream GORGEOUS! I’m a sucker for anything shimmery, metallic or holographic…so this collection snagged my attention as soon as they arrived. The textures range from a micro fine powder to a chunky, multi dimensional glitter.
Hello Gorgeous! Becca Cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill made sure that everyone’s highlight blings this summer with their new collaboration! As many of us remember, the debut of the “Champagne Pop” highlighter a few months back was a hectic one. I scrambled to Sephora to grab one of the limited edition compacts because I knew the regret would haunt me forever. Luckily, for those that weren’t able to pick one up now have another opportunity to add this beauty to their collection. In addition to the “Champagne Pop” powder product there is also a bunch of other newbies and alternate formulas to fit everyone’s preference and budget. Let’s take a closer look. Continue reading →
Ooo Lala!!! If your makeup collection does not consist of something from the Dose of Colors line, I’m convinced that you have not lived. Okay, maybe I’m being a little bit dramatic …but since their inception 3 years ago there isn’t a single product that I have not loved. Anna, the founder of Dose of Colors, was a makeup artist turned business owner and she’s turned her love for the art of makeup into a thriving makeup company. As an artist, I appreciate the quality and dedication that she puts into the brand because every product is made with love and her customers in mind. Dose of Colors is mainly known for their liquid lipsticks, but they have recently expanded to pigments, brushes and their first makeup palette.
Colourpop is back at it again. This time it’s a collab with the beautiful Karrueche, model and former girlfriend of Chris Brown. She has made a name for herself in the industry and has teamed up with Colourpop to release the KaePop Collection. There has been quite a few collaborations circulating recently but this one is by far one of the most extensive. There are 3 liquid lipsticks, 3 lip liners, 4 eyeshadows and 3 cheek products. It is a predominately neutral collection geared toward products that favor consumers of medium to deeper skin tones. These products (especially the lippies) can be used across the skin tone spectrum, which I think is great! As per usual you can find swatches and my full review below:
Hi Lovies! I am back with another review using these beauties by Tarte Cosmetics. Before we jump into this post, can we just take a moment to appreciate this background! I literally look at it and die. I have been saving this picture for a few weeks, but I was finally able to sit down, try this new line out and share this amazing product with you all. This is a throwback pic from Kauai, Hawaii. One of the most magical places on Earth and I was so grateful to be able to experience it with my Tarte Cosmetics family, who are some of the sweetest and most genuine people ever.
Tarte has been killing the game with fabulous product launches almost every month! I was so excited when I tested out this line, because I have itching to break out of me matte rut, and these have kickstarted my love for traditional lipsticks again.
Colourpop Cosmetics is back at it again with a new launch! This newer company has taken social media by storm with a variety of fabulous products; at a very reasonable price. The newest edition to their line are the Ultra Satin Liquid lipsticks which they consider the younger sister to the Ultra Matte Lippies. I am a matte girl at heart, but it’s nice to have options when I’m feeling a bit adventurous.
Every once in a while a palette is created that’s so beautiful, you almost feel guilty for using it. I was so excited when I heard that MannyMUA was collaborating with Makeup Geek Cosmetics to launch a new palette. If there is one thing artists do well, it’s launching the best collabs since they know exactly what to look for regarding quality, pigmentation, functionality, versatility and packaging.
Tis’ the season for Holiday products and new releases. Tarte Cosmetics has been kicking butt in the makeup industry and releasing such an amazing selection of products this year. I had the pleasure of checking out and playing with their New Collection for the past few weeks and I absolutely love it! It’s evident how much work and thought went into this line and as a frequent shopper of Tarte, great products like this are always appreciated.
La Splash Cosmetics has released a beautiful array of matte lipsticks!! They are reasonably priced and comparable to some higher end liquid lipsticks.
Find Swatches for my entire collection below (click on each picture to enlarge). Most of the shades require one layer, however some tend to be slightly patchier and require an extra layer to achieve an opaque look. The drying time is between 3-5 minutes.
As summertime approaches everyone is on the search for that “glow”. A lot of makeup artists find it hard to tone it down during the colder months, but now that the warmer climate is upon us it is totally acceptable to pack on the highlight!
