Applying-Fenty-Beauty-Pro-F
I wish every single brand would come out with minis of all their products! It’s just so much easier to try out a smaller size of something before committing to the regular version. So thank you FENTY BEAUTY for creating these travel-size deluxe sizes of some of your most popular products.

And remember, because it’s a smaller size, it won’t cost you as much!

It Cosmetics Confidence In A Foundation

It-Cosmetics-Confidence-In-A-Foundation
Leave it to It Cosmetics to come out with my staple foundation. IT COSMETICS Confidence In A Foundation ($32/1oz @ itcosmetics.com, sephora.com, ) keeps the confidence going and they claim up to 24-hours. 24 hours? I’m not sure how they test that trait out. I mean, do they actually have test subjects wear the foundation for up to 24-hours to see how it wears? And when do they consider the time is up on wear-time? All things that make you go hmmmm…

Urban Decay Game of Thrones Palette

Urban-Decay-Game-of-Thrones-Palette-unfolded
By now you’ve probably seen all the photos of the URBAN DECAY UD / Game of Thrones Palette ($65 @ urbandecay.com, ulta.com) and a lot of you picked it up as it’s sold out on their website! What a stellar collab.

The palette is comprised of the five house names of GOT – House Targaryen, House Lannister, House Stark, The North. I had to ask a GOT friend of mine how to refer to these five names as I don’t watch the show!.

Check out these 20 shades of mattes, metallic and frosty shimmers inside the palette. It has 16 shades and four transformer shadows.

Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation

Kat-Von-D-Lock-It-Powder-Foundation

Applying-Kat-Von-D-Lock-It-Powder-Foundation
Overall, I've pretty much had a good experience with just about every KAT VON D beauty product I've tried. But this next one really hits the ball out of the park! It's her new Lock-It Powder Foundation ($36 @ sephora.com). 

When it comes to full-coverage powder foundations, I've only experienced a handful of them and really the only one I can remember is Bare Escentuals. 

What It Is: A vegan powder foundation that delivers full-coverage, instant blurring, and extreme long wear, in a sexy compact. Lock-It Powder Foundation is formulated with rice powder extract to blur away imperfections. Kaolin, a clay mineral, helps give a diffused, matte finish without feeling dry, making this formula ideal for a range of skin types.

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer & Hello FAB Bendy Avocado Concealer

First-Aid-Beauty-Ultra-Repair-Tinted-Moisturizer-and-Hello-FAB-Bendy-Avocado-Concealer
FIRST AID BEAUTY
just added five new shades of their Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer ($28/1oz @ firstaidbeauty.com, sephora.com, ulta.com, dermstore.com). Since temps are warming up, perhaps a heavy foundation is not in your wheel-well. The formula contains a broad-spectrum SPF 30 and is whipped like a mousse. It meets all the basic requirements for a tinted moisturizer like building up to a medium coverage, so if you’re in the market, this would be a good one to consider, especially if you have sensitive skin as all their products are formulated for it.

UZ Eye Opening Liner

UZ-Eye-Opening-Liners-on-pic
This product had quite an interesting launch! Their Unframe the Beauty campaign was launched inside manila envelopes with Confidential written on the outside and given out to peeps attending NYFW this past February. Inside was a liner and a way to vote KEEP or DROP the liner. With some experience under the Flowfushi name in Japan, a successful launch in that region gave them hope for this side of the world.

I was contacted via email and sent a sample of the black and posted some Instagram Stories about it, though I admit, I was kind of confused by the campaign and the voting on it. .

What It Is – UZ Eye Opening Liner ($16 @ uz.team). And there’s a lot of thought behind every aspect of these 13 available colors.

Innisfree Vivid Cotton Ink

Innisfree-Vivid-Cotton-Ink

I was pretty fascinated with these when they came out and since these INNISFREE Vivid Cotton Ink ($12 @ innisfree.com) are also from Korea, I was not too surprised when they kinda acted the same.

What It Is: Intense like ink, comfy like cotton! Matte yet moist liquid lip glides on easy, creating a velvety finish. Leaves behind a lasting tint in 13 vivid shades. Formulated with botanical oils that keep lips feeling moist, including: cotton seed, camellia, mango seed and avocado.
