  • New and Improved Too Faced Foundation

    NEW and IMPROVED Too Faced Born This Way Matte Foundation $46. Too Faced has updated their long-wear matte foundation formula and packaging. This foundation offers a buildable, medium to full coverage, a soft matte finish and is available in 30 shades. Smooths skin’s appearance and help control your oil without being drying. It claims to be waterproof, sweat proof and humidity resistant. I feel that this release is more similar to their discontinued Peach Perfect Soft Matte foundation than their previous Born This Way Matte foundation. I absolutely love the Peach Perfect line and I know so many people who were saddened by them discontinuing it. A soft matte foundation…

  • Huda Beauty Blush Filter Liquid Blush

    Huda Beauty Blush Filter Liquid Blush $21 will be available June 7th. Huda is calling this the ultimate liquid blush, and her reel completely sold me on this product. It is described as being lightweight, yet buildable.  Contains finely-milled pearls for the most stunning glow, yet dries down and doesn’t budge. I’m definitely intrigued by that! I hate when a liquid blush remains tacky to provide the glow I want. This blush can be worn solo or applied over makeup… even after powder. It will also smell amazing! Will be available in 5 shades. I have my eye on Strawberry Cream I think. Will you be picking one of these…

  • Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Melting Bronzing Stick

    NOW AVAILABLE Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Melting Bronzing Stick $47. This easy cream bronzer and sculpting stick gives a natural finish, warmth and dimension to the skin. The formula is lightweight and blendable; it won’t disturb makeup, and is made with skin-loving ingredients such as vitamin E and squalane. We all know the Too Faced Chocolate series smells amazing. I’ve heard these bronzing sticks smell exactly like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, which completely sold me on the product! I am surprised that Too Faced seems to have come out with this type of product so late compared to other brands considering they’re most known for their bronzer series. What are…

  • Milk Makeup KUSH Hydrating Sheer Lip Oil

    NEW Milk Makeup KUSH Hydrating Sheer Lip Oil. This is a sheer, non-sticky lip oil made with hydrating oils that deliver an intense hit of hydration and shine for smoother-, fuller-looking lips. Why is it that every single lip oil release has me 👀? It’s interesting that each shade in this line up also has a different flavour. All of them sound good! I don’t know which I’d choose. I will say, these do feel a bit pricey for me. They’re $36 for 5.5mL. Milk Makeup is a high-end makeup brand sold at Sephora, but this is nearing a luxury price point in my opinion. Lip oils have become my…

  • Kosas BB Burst Tinted Moisturizer

    NEW Kosas BB Burst Tinted Moisturizer Gel Cream with Copper Peptides. Kosas is releasing a clean, tinted gel cream that’s a fresh take on tinted moisturizer—it delivers a refreshing burst of active skincare, light buildable coverage, and a smooth, hydrated, natural finish. How amazing does this look? This tinted moisturizer looks so fresh on the skin, and perfect for every day wear. I personally have more combo skin, but I do love a fresh, healthy finish on the skin. The real test for me will be whether it lasts all day. I have never tried a GEL tinted moisturizer. I am very intrigued by this formulation – it seems very…

  • NYX Blurscreen SPF 30 Primer

    NEW NYX Blurscreen SPF 30 Primer. NYX Cosmetics have been killing it with the new releases lately. I’ve added so many of them onto my makeup wish list [cries in makeup low buy]. My number one primer need is to blur my enlarged pores so I was automatically intrigued. Add in super cute packaging, and SPF – I’m there! This is 3-in-1 blurring primer for up to 18h wear and helps protect skin with SPF 30 protection. I definitely recommend still applying your daily sunscreen underneath, but we love the added protection against the sun’s rays. This claims to blur and grip, protect all skin tones with no white cast…
