Lush Boo! Shower Slime Review

Lush Boo! Shower Slime ($18.95) is a new, limited edition exfoliating shower jelly that released with the Lush Halloween 2019 Collection. I remember when Lush Halloween consisted of two or three items one of which was Ghost Shower Gel which I so dearly loved. Halloween has become a major deal for Lush and the collection is a lot larger in recent years. I love Halloween so of course, I look forward to their launches around this time of the year. Something I do not like is Lush Shower Jelly. I th...

Natasha Denona Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Natasha Denona Mini Gold Eyeshadow Palette ($25) is a new, limited edition Holiday 2019 5-pan eyeshadow palette which is exclusively available at Sephora. I purchased this the day it came out because I love a good olive green palette. Greens just look great on my big brown eyes. But this is sort of another case of Fall 2019 merging into Holiday 2019 because I swear this feels way more Fall in tone than it does Holiday. We’re seeing a lot of this happen across many brands! Too Faced Extra Spicy ...

Colourpop Over Dramatic Super Shock Cheek Review & Swatches

Colour Pop Overdramatic Super Shock Cheek ($8) is a new blush shade that launched with the Whatever Eyeshadow Palette for Fall 2019. There are actually six shades and I was able to get all of them in the Call It Whatever Vault they have available for $99. I got a coupon for a few bucks off and I really just loved this collection so I went all wild and crazy and hauled the complete collection. Let’s take a peek at the Overdramatic below! Colourpop Over Dramatic Super Shock Cheek comes in lim...

ColourPop Whatever Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

ColourPop Whatever Eyeshadow Palette ($18) is a new, Fall 2019 12-pan eyeshadow palette that contains a mix of gorgeous burgundy shades, warm terracottas, stunning cranberries, and coppers. It happens to be one of my favorite eyeshadow palettes of the season. Fall has come and gone in the makeup world. There have been some gorgeous palettes that launched for Holiday 2019 like the Too Faced Extra Spicy Gingerbread Eyeshadow Palette which have sort of merged the Fall and Holiday season but on a w...

Charlotte Tilbury Palette of Pops Luxury Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Charlotte Tilbury Palette of Pops Luxury Eyeshadow Palette ($53) is a new, limited edition that contains four sparkling, sheer eyeshadow toppers inspired by the original and bestselling Pillow Talk Luxury Eyeshadow Palette. The palette was created as a companion piece of sorts to work with the original palette which I loved the idea of as the original palette is lovely but subtle and I wasn’t averse to add a bit more “pop” the look that Pillow Talk creates. I was very, very surprised that the p...

Smith & Cult Glitterbaby Metallic-Shift Eyeshadow Review & Swatches

Smith & Cult Glitterbaby Metallic-Shift Eyeshadow ($24) is a new, stunning glitter cream eyeshadow that recently launched in twelve shades that contains black micronized pigments which give this shadow way more pigmentation and wow factor compared to Stila’s Glitter & Glow Eyeshadow. Hey, don’t get me wrong I’m still a Stila Glitter & Glow girl for life but Smith & Cult’s formula is pretty darn amazing. Smith & Cult Glitterbaby Metallic-Shift Eyeshadow is a new $24 glitter cream eyeshadow t...

Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lipgloss ($30) is a welcome addition to my lipgloss wardrobe this Summer. It’s been a hot minute since Hourglass graced our makeup collection with a new lipgloss formula the Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lipgloss arrives in 18 shades and 3 finishes with a formula that acts to provide shine, moisture, pigment, and volume to lips. The formula contains but shea butter and avocado oil while Haluronic Acid acts to retain that moisture and plump up lips for a smo...

Tarte Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick Might Convince Me I Like Matte Liquid Lipsitck

Tarte Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick ($15) is a new liquid lipstick formula that launched with the Tarte Sugar Rush Collection in four shades. I’m not a big fan of matte, long-wearing lipsticks as we all know since I tell you this daily and I’m starting to sound like a broken record. But from time to time a formula will come out and make me change my mind. I have to admit that formula might be Sugar Coat Velvet Liquid Lipstick! It’s lightweight, non-drying, and fairly priced. And the Tart...

Pat Mcgrath Labs Mini LUST Gloss Trio Gets You Not One but Three Great Lipglosses at a Great Price

Pat Mcgrath Labs Mini LUST Gloss Trio ($25) is a trio of mini Lust Lipgloss shades that’s available in a warm and cool shade selections. It’s a rather nice way to try out the Lust Lipgloss formula without spending $28 on a single shade. Don’t get me wrong, Lust Lipgloss is totally worth the $28 price tag but it’s always nice to get three mini shades to check out, try out, and play with before indulging on one full-size shade. I own both the cooler and the warmer shade range in this set but ...

Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Tarte Adelaine Morin Eye & Cheek Palette ($39) launched a few short weeks ago and was created in collaboration with youTuber Adelaine Morin. Yes, I’m old and had to Google who she was because I was all: Ok, so, here’s the thing. I’m either not watching enough youTube, I’m too old, I may live under a rock, or Tarte selects youTubers no one ever heard of to do collaborations with. I’ll feel a lot better if someone steps in here and says they don’t know who Adelaine is either. Had the same issue ...

As you may know the Inkey List is a newish skincare brand bred and born in the UK. It launched about six months ago in the UK and more recently it arrived on US shores and is available at sephora.com (and come soon to Sephora stores).

Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture So Extra Drenched Hydration Buttery Conditioner Review

Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture So Extra Drenched Hydration Buttery Conditioner ($22) is a new deep conditioner that I recently purchased at Sephora. The name drew me in because when I was like 12 I wrote an essay on Madam C.J. Walker. See? Even way back I was obsessed with beauty! Madam C.J. Walker was a political and social activist but also, an African American business woman who sold developed and sold her own line of hair care in the 1900s. Now, Madam Walker has long since left us bu...

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Review & Swatches

I picked up a few shades of the new Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Lip Color Lipstick ($3.99) that launched a several weeks ago on the brand’s website. At $3.99 each these seemed like a good pick up as the creamy, lightweight formula that Wet n Wild promised sounded like something I’d love. Not to mention they tempted me with a creamy texture that had hydrating ingredients like Murumuru Seed Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Argan Oil, and Macadamia Oil. As someone with drier lips they sounded great! Th...

Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette Review & Swatches

Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Face Palette in Lovegasm is one of two new, limited edition palettes featuring a highlighter, multi-glow powder, bronzer, and pop blush that can be used on cheeks as well as eyes. I purchased this when it originally launched on Charlotte’s website but before I could try it I somehow got lucky and Sephora had both palettes in stock and I was able to use my 20% off to purchase them. I ended up returning the ones I purchased at charlottetilbury.com since 20% off was kind...

Stila Beauty Boss Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

I have a new favorite lipgloss and it’s Stila Beauty Boss Lipgloss! Just give me all the shades! Stila Beauty Boss Lipgloss launched a few short weeks ago in 12 shade selections for a mere $15 each. It’s been a while since any mid or high-range lipglosses caught my eye but this formula is divine! I was boring and got it in a cream formula one of the few shades available without sparkle of some kind and I have to admit I wish they had more cream finish shades as this is gorgeous, easy to wear, q...

NARS Summer Lights Face Palette Review & Swatches

NARS Summer Lights Face Palette ($59) is one of new, limited edition Summer 2019 face palettes that contains eyeshadows, bronzer, and a highlighter in warm bronze-y shades. When I saw the Summer Lights Face Palette I new almost instantly I wanted it but the main draw of the palette was the four eyeshadows and not the bronzer nor the highlighter. I’ve been slowing getting into highlighters lately but for the most part I purchase them and just look at them but never use them. Yeah, I’m that weird...

Natasha Denona Duo Glow Review & Swatches

Natasha Denona Duo Glow ($38) in Alba has been on my wish list a while as I do love golden coral shades! Since Summer is going to get here eventually I decided to purchase this during the Sephora Sales Event at 20% off. I could be delirious here but $38 wasn’t too bad a price to pay at retail as Natasha’s line is marked up pretty heavily and I was like hmm this is twice the size as NARS Orgasm for $8 more. NARS Orgasm is 0.16 oz and $30 where as Natasha Denona Duo Glow is 0.35 oz and $38. So, i...

Covergirl Revolution Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Covergirl Revolution Eyeshadow Palette ($14.98) is one of four, new, limited edition 12-pan eyeshadow palettes that launched with the Covergirl My Majesty Collection which is available exclusively available at Walmart and Walmart.com. These palettes launched mid-April and to me they are sort of a nod to Game of Thrones especially the Revolution Palette that looks like it has a dragon theme going on with fiery shades of red and gold. Take what you will from it but to me it seems like these launc...

Does Anyone Love Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer As Much As I Do?

I’m prone to dry skin not only my face but all over my body. It’s been pretty tame this Winter though! When the Fall hit I was feeling a bit tight, dry, and itchy but it passed quickly and up until recently things have been going pretty smoothly in my dry skin realm. However, the weather started to get a little warmer about two weeks ago and suddenly for some unknown reason I started to feel super dry and itchy. And I mean ITCHY! Oh my gosh it was awful. I started slathering on all my loti...

Sephora #LipStories Lipsticks Are $5.60 and As Awesome As Ever

I decided that during the Sephora 20% Spring Beauty Event that I’d haul some new shades of Sephora Lipstories Lipsticks because they are still totally awesome and at $5.60 why the hell shouldn’t I get some more shades (regularly $7 each). I tried these little lipsticks out when the originally launched if you recall my review was pretty raving! The shade I reviewed was Matinee which I’m wearing below! Recently, Sephora released a new range of #Lipstories for Spring/Summer 2019 called Destinati...

Goodal Black Salt Deep Cleansing Oil Is Perfect For Drier Skin Types (And Everyone Else Too!)

Goodal Black Salt Deep Cleansing Oil ($30) is one of my new favorite cleansing oils that my dry skin is absolutely loving! I tend to swap around cleansing oils a lot simply because the ones I really like get discontinued or aren’t easily available in the US. My tried and true is Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil that doesn’t strip my skin! This one of the most appealing aspects of Fancl’s formulas as too many cleansers tend to tighten and strip my skin. When you’re already pretty dry you really don’...

The Best and Cheapest Nude Lip Color You Need and Will Thank Me For Recommending to You

Catrice Pure Pigments Lip Lacquer ($7.99) in Salted Caramel is one of the best and cheapest nude lip colors I’ve run across in recent years and totally one you need (Ok, I lied, the cheapest nude would be Essence Insta-Care Lipstick! You totally need that too by the very way!). I always on the look out for a wearable nude because I find many of them unwearable. Nude lip color is a hard one and when you do find one it’s like hitting the lotto! For a really long time I just avoided them but latel...

I hauled this for a few reasons. First off, the packaging of course was highly appealing! I admit I own several of I Heart Revolution’s Chocolate Palettes due to the cute design! The melted chocolate bar look definately has a Too...

NYX Candy Slick Glowy Lip Color ($6.50) is a delightful new glossy liquid lip color I’m currently in love with. Available in 12 shades I’ve already decided I need to haul more of these but oh my gosh I can’t believe some of the crummy reviews they have!

. Covergirl Reign Eyeshadow Palette ($14.98) is one of four new Covergirl My Majesty Collection that launched at Walmart earlier this month. The eyeshadow palettes have a certain Game of Thrones feel and look! Especially the Overthrown Eyeshadow Palette that looks like it has an Iron Throne on the cover. It seems like everyone is getting Game of Thrones fever and I’m cool with that! Each palette contains 12 eyeshadows each in a variety of beautiful colors making them the biggest palettes I’ve se...

I’m No Sansa Stark But I’m Pretending To Be Today With Her New Vice Lipstick Shade

Urban Decay Sansa Stark Vice Lipsitck ($18) is one of four new, limited edition shades that UD collaborated with HBO to create. I’m not sure I’d say that Sansa plays any real important role in the battle for the Iron Throne, some may disagree, but she could surprise us at some point. The thing about Sansa is she starts out a silly, somewhat bratty girl but she becomes a strong woman. Her journey is one of strength and her evolution is accurately portrayed in A Storm of Swords when she thinks to...

Dior Peach Delight Diorskin Nude Luminizer Lolli’Glow Powder ($48) is one of two new, limited edition highlighter shades that launched for Spring 2019. Most of you I’m not much of a highlighter fan but one of my biggest downfalls in the highlighter world is anything peach or coral in color. Needless to say, I was all about the Dior Peach Delight DiorSkin Nude Luminizer as soon as it launched and have been using it the last few weeks and quite enjoying it. Let’s have a look! I can’t remember...

Flower Beauty Pop Fanatic Vinyl Lip Review & Swatches

Flower Beauty Pop Fanatic Vinyl Lip ($9.99) is part of the brand’s new Spring 2019 Collection that launched early this year with new popping shades of eyeshadow! Pop Fanatic Vinyl Lip is actually sort of a pretty good replacement for the more expensive Charlotte Tilbury Latex Love Long-Lasting Lip Gloss. I hesitated to call it a dupe since the formula is a bit thicker but in some ways the two products are very much alike. So, if you weren’t interested in shelling out the bucks for CT’s formula ...

You know, when you run across palettes like the Viseart Petit Pro Palette and you start using them you really have to question your sanity. I’ve spent plenty of money on a variety of different Too Faced Eyeshadow Palettes peach in theme that had more eyeshadows and were a bit more expensive in price but I’d much rather just si...
