This Week in Makeup News Aug 14-20

Happy Sunday, everyone! Who’s ready for the eclipse tomorrow?? I live in the direct path for totality, so we are super excited ’round here! School actually postponed opening until Tuesday, so everyone could be at home to enjoy the sights, which is kinda cool. Local governments are advising for people to stay off the roads. Y’all know if people are driving when the eclipse starts, the number of wrecks will skyrocket. So, in order to keep the public safe from itself, they are recommending people not drive. Y’all know I am a-okay with not going anywhere haha

Alright, let’s just jump on in!

Coloured Raine has restocked their much loved Queen of Hearts palette, and they have announced that it will become a permanent addition! You can add this awesome palette to your collection for $50.

Storybook Cosmetics, the company known for the Witchcraft and Wizardry palette, rose shaped makeup brushes, and quill and ink eyeliner, has announced a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory eyeshadow palette. Details coming soon.

By now, everyone knows about PUR‘s My Little Pony collection, inspired by the movie being released in October. You can find this cute collection at Ulta, and PUR’s website.

Yesterday, Jeffree Star announced the end result of his collab with Jouer and it’s a stunning candy pink lip topper, appropriately named Sweet Tooth. You can get it from Jouer’s site, or from Beautylish for $16, but not until Aug 26 at noon, PST. Put in the code JSTAR at checkout for some savings. All of the proceeds from this collab will go to charity.

Burt’s Bees is launching a full makeup line! Look for the collection in Walmart and CVS stores sometime in October.

IT Cosmetics will soon be available at Sephora! The brand is already available on Sephora’s  website, and look for products on store shelves by mid-September.

The highly prized Moschino x Sephora line sold out very quickly, but look for an entire collection restock by Aug 24.

KKW Beauty, or Kim Kardashian West’s makeup brand for those who may not know, is launching powder contour kits, on the heels of her wildly popular creme contour kits. The kits will launch on the website Aug 22 at noon, EST.

Colourpop also restocked their hugely popular Crystal Vibes collection and She palette. The eyeshadow palette has already sold out again, and products are hit and miss with the Crystal Vibes line.

And finally, the prestige hair care line, Bumble and Bumble has landed at Ulta!

That’s all I have in makeup news for the past week.  Personally, I’m excited for the Jeffree Star x Jouer lip topper! What are you excited for? Did I miss anything? Lemme know!

This week in makeup news Aug 8 – Aug 13

Hello dear friends! Welcome to the newest addition to the Look Good, Feel Good lineup! Sundays will be for posting makeup related news, new releases, etc. Without further ado, let’s jump right in!

ColourPop is coming to Sephora!! According to sources, the low, low prices we all love will NOT go up. Look for this awesome brand to hit shelves sometime in November. Also in Colourpop news, the popular Fem Rosa palette will restock on Aug 17 at 10am PST, 1pm EST, for $16. If you have been wanting this palette as much as I have, do not wait! Set an alarm on your phone if you need to. The Yes, Please palette restocked on Thursday and sold out almost immediately. This will probably be the same. The website is currently running a special on their Bring The Heat collection. Buy any two single items in the collection, get one free!

Kat Von D News!! The new Shade + Light Creme Contour palette is available online now and retails for $49 at Sephora and the Kat Von D Beauty website. The palette is refillable. This will be on shelves Aug 25. Also available now from Kat Von D Beauty is a line of cruelty free, vegan brushes. Face brushes range in price from $24-$38. There only seems to be two eye brushes listed, Glimmer Effect Eye Brush #50 ($24) and Shade + Light Eye Contour Brush ($27). All products from Kat Von D beauty are cruelty free and a lot are vegan. This very busy lady also unveiled her new line of liquid lippies, Everlasting Glimmer Veil  Glitter Lipstick. These are hugely pigmented and gorgeous! One shade, Reverb, is available now. The other eight launch Aug 22.

Wet n Wild’s new Midnight Mermaid collection hits Ulta on Aug 13, which is today! This 12-piece collection is loaded with metallic liquid eye shadows, lippies, eyeliner and a Mega Glo highlight bar, complete with a mermaid tail pressed into the product. The collection goes live on Wet n Wild’s website Aug 14. I just checked on my Ulta app, though, and I don’t see anything mermaid-y from Wet n Wild. Every source I have checked says it’s launching today at Ulta … I wonder if there has been a delay?

The Dose of Colors Desi x Katy Collection goes live Aug 14. If you like sparkle, this is the collab for you! The collection includes two liquid matte lipsticks, two lipsticks, a liploss, and eyeshadow quad and two highlights. You can get the collection here.

Ciaté is releasing an innovative new liquid lipstick line called Glitter Flip, on Aug 15. From what I can tell, it goes on like a normal liquid lipstick. Leave it to dry for two minutes, then press your lips together. According to the website, this activates the glitter and you now have a full coverage glitter lip! You can also run your finger over your lips to activate. This interesting product will come in seven dazzling shades and can be ordered here.

eos has released another innovative product … transparent vegan lip balm! Available in two flavors, Hibiscus Peach and Vanilla Orchid, these products are exactly what they sound like. The are a crystal clear balm, in eos’ signature shape and packaging. Called Crystal Lip Balm, it is currently sold out on their website, but can be found Walmart, Target, CVS, and Walgreens, for around $5.50.

Juvia’s Place has released multicolored brushes and they are available now! The brushes look a little like Neapolitan ice cream haha They offer a 3-piece face set for $18 and a 5-piece eye set for $15.

Urban Decay has expanded their already expansive Vice lipstick line by adding 15 new shades to the collection. Basically, there are no details, except this sneak peek photo on their Instagram feed. They are pretty, so stay tuned for more details!

Huda Beauty Textured Shadows palette in Rose Gold is back in stock at Sephora. However, this palette is being discontinued this October. The $65 palette is currently available at Sephora and the Huda Beauty site. Despair not, though. The new Desert Dusk palette has several similar shades.

Makeup Mondays ~ ColourPop Gemini by Midnight

Good Monday, lovelies! I am back!! Thank you for understanding that I was simply unable to get any posts up while I was gone. Funerals are a crappy way to reconnect with loved ones, but I am so glad I went. Aside from the circumstances, I had a wonderful time seeing everyone. When someone has been in your life for thirty years, they are no longer friends. They are bona fide family. Keeping in touch before the days of social media, heck, even before the internet, is no easy feat haha but we did it. Her parents have been more my parents than my own were. Sorry to ramble, but thank you for understanding that my attention needed to be on them over the last few days.

Right before I left, I got an awesome package from ColourPop. Literally, as I was leaving my driveway haha I have never used any of their shadows or lip products before. I got an eyeliner once in an Ipsy bag and I loved it. I have heard nothing but good things about their products over the last few months, so I decided to take the plunge. I ordered three palettes, but today, I am reviewing the collaboration with Sonya Esman, called Gemini by Midnight.

These are pressed powder shadows, and they are soooo soft and creamy. They almost feel cool to the touch.

I am aging a bit, (just a bit haha), and my eyelids can cause shadows to skip a little and be difficult to blend, because the skin isn’t as tight as it used to be. Not with these shadows! They glide onto the skin with incredible ease and blend out amazingly well.

I did a very quick, rushed look today, as we were running late for an appointment … shocker, right? haha I used Golden Gate Bridge as a transition shade, Manhattan Coffee Run for my crease, and Moscow Sunrise for my lid. These pictures were taken about seven hours after I applied and I did not use a lid primer. I’d say they look pretty good!

Overall, these are great shadows. I think ColourPop removed this palette from their website, because I cannot find it on there now. However, you should be able to recreate the palette with the names given above. You can create your own palettes, as they sell their shades individually, as well as curated palettes. I paid $12 for four shadows, and I couldn’t be more pleased. The pigmentation is outstanding for the price, or any price, for that matter. As I said above, my eyelids are no longer as firm as they were when I was 20, so shadows can be tricky, especially when I am in a hurry and I need them to cooperate. This formula was incredibly cooperative, and I can only imagine how they will look when I’m not in a hurry! I’m not sure how this company can create such great quality products at such low prices, but I’m sure glad they figured it out!! They have also come out with brushes and concealers! The buzz surrounding that announcement was huge and they are finally live. The concealers are $6 and they are completely sold out. Brushes range in price from $11 to $5, and I cannot wait to try them out!!

Have you tried ColourPop Cosmetics products before? What are your thoughts about the quality? What was your experience? Have you used other indie brands that perform just as well? Lemme know!
