A Huge Release from Urban Decay!

Urban-Decay-Vice-Lipsticks-on-table
URBAN DECAY
just came out with a huge release. Like physically huge! Like 100 lipsticks! It’s Vice Lipstick and these span the range of finishes – from Mega Matte (designated by MM), Comfort Matte (CM), Cream (C), Metallized (M), Sheer (S), and Sheer Shimmer (SS).

So what is this Vice and why do I need them?

Vice Lipstick comes in a modernized, luxed-up version of our original lipstick case (that looked like a shotgun shell). It’s new, but speaks to our roots.

The luxurious, faceted gunmetal case has a gold base and debossed lettering.

Our custom-designed lipstick features an embossed “UD.”

Shade-matching labels (including the shade name and finish) make it easy to find our current addiction in your bag.

Let's get to the unboxing!

Do You Milk Makeup?

Milk-MakeupMilk-Makeup-in-bag
I’ve seen the MILK MAKEUP brand a few times on the Sephora website and I know that when it’s sold there, it must be something. So I finally got my hands of three of the products to try out:

Lip Color in Gnarly, Eye Pigment in Mermaid Parade, and Lip + Cheek in Swish.

Milk Makeup made its 85-piece product debut on the scene early this year by the people behind NYC’s Milk Studios, so you know it’s already got the hip factor.

Products for Strobing

Do you strobe? Have you tried it yet? It’s the opposite of contouring and it’s sure having a moment right now! And it seems easier than contouring too. Simply think of where light naturally hits your face like the top of the cheekbones, down the nose and middle of the forehead and apply the product there. It's such a refreshing touch to add to your look!

Here are some products that can help you get in the strobing mood:

Benefit-Cosmetics-Brow-Collection-main
I watched a bunch of snaps of the huge party BENEFIT COSMETICS had in Las Vegas for the launch of their Brow Collection over the weekend (yup, my invite got lost in the mail) and wow, this collection is huge!

What looked like a couple dozen different products in the pictures and video is actually only 10 total products; some have been out before and this is their relaunch and some are brand new. All are out in July 2016 in the United States.

Check out all the pictures below!

Get Matte with IT Cosmetics

It-Cosmetics-Naturally-Pretty-Essentials-Matte-Luxe-Transforming-Eyeshadow-Palette-compact
I don’t think you could get a shimmery eye shadow on my lids right now if you tried. Well, if you held me down perhaps but I’m just not feeling them these days, along with lip gloss.

That’s why the IT COSMETICS Naturally Pretty Essentials ($28 @ itcosmetics.com and qvc.com) eye shadow palette is so up my alley; it’s all mattes all the time and one radiatingly gorg highlighter.

Get Yourself this TwistNClean

TwistNClean-main

TwistNClean-top

Until recently, I didn’t even think there was another option to keeping this paper towel on my makeup table to wipe off my mascara wand or any other makeup tips or items when they were messy.

TWIST N CLEAN was invented to clean off the mascara wand instead of using a paper towel, tissue or anything else. I came across them at the Indie Beauty Expo last week and wow, this could be a dressing table game changer!

A New Breed of Liquid Lipsticks in Town

Buxom-Wildly-Whipped-Sof-Matte-Lip-ColorsNARS-Lip-Cover
By now, most of you have tried liquid lipsticks and know what you like with them and what you don’t. For me, I just like that the color lasts on lips and not on everything else. Yes, some are more transferable than others but these next two really threw me for a loop as I thought I’d seen it all when it came to liquid lipsticks and what to expect.

April Beauty Favorites

April-Favorites-2
As we come to the close of April, I’ve been frantically testing out products I think are worthy of getting the favorite of the month tag. Here are a few I recommend. 

1. FRESH Sugar Sport Treatment Sunscreen SPF 30 ($25 @ fresh.com, sephora.com) – Since it’s in a stick form, you can slide it in your purse and never worry about spillage. Now there’s no excuse for not wearing SPF, right?

2. IT COSMETICS Heavenly Luxe You Sculpted! #18 Contour & Highlight Brush ($34.50 @ itcosmetics.com) - So why don’t I have a brush like this in my collection? I didn’t realize how much I needed one in this shape until I saw this one! Isn’t that always the case? Love this one for (trying) to sculpt my cheeks and to brush under the jaw line. 

3. KISS USA Ruby Kisses Matte Lipstick in Red Mangrove ($2.99 @ kissusa.com) – Wait, did you even know this brand made anything beside lashes and fake nails? I didn’t! I saw a few YouTube videos raving about their matte lipsticks so I had to try them and they are really all that. If you like a little moisture with your matte lippies then these are for you and how about that price?? I picked mine up at my local beauty supply store.

4. BENEFIT COSMETICS Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter ($26 @ benefitcosmetics.com) – This is such a nice matte pinky nude highlighter that can be use anywhere on the face. Lately it’s been ruling the tops of my cheeks.

5. CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream ($26.50 @ clinique.com and sephora.com) – I’ve never needed an eye cream more than in the last few months for some reason. #aging. This one is light on the skin and on the purse strings. It hydrates, depuffs and really seems to wake me up.

6. ELIE SAAB ‘Le Parfum Rose Couture’ Eau de Toilette ($80/1.6oz, $108/3oz only @ nordstrom.com) – Anything rose always welcomes springtime for me and I’ve worn this one non-stop since I got it. Orange flower, jasmine, rose nectar, vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli, mandarin tree blossom, gardenia and warm honey rose. Every note says feminine.

7. TARTE COSMETICS Rainforest of the Sea Wipeout Color-Correcting Palette ($45 @ tartecosmetics.comsephora.com) – You don’t need to suffer from any kind of discolorations on your skin anymore! Color-correcting is all the rage for a reason. It works! This one has 6 creams shades to get your skin on point.

Disclosure: Some of these items were provided for review purposes. Some I bought.
