New Game of Thrones collection from Urban Decay ⚔️🛡⚔️

Happy Friday!

GOT fans get ready. On April 14th, Urban Decay is releasing their new collection in collaboration with Game of Thrones, and honestly, it looks pretty great.

The first thing I noticed from this collection is the eyeshadow palette.

So this packaging…… 🤨

If you despise bulky packaging…. this isn’t for you. It is a huge box with a pop up throne. However, if you think this is cool, and understand that it’s more of a collector’s item then 👍🏾. I usually hate bully packaging, but I think this is cool. (I don’t even watch the show btw.)

The UD x GOT collection also includes new makeup brushes, a highlighter palette, new Vice lipsticks, and some new 24/7 eyeliners. What’s catching your eye?

New blush trios from Alamar Cosmetics 😻😻😻

Alamar Cosmetics has launched some new blush palettes and 😯

First of all, I love that they released three versions. A lot of brand only do two variations leaving either the lightest and the darkest shades without options, or leaving folks in the middle with options that are either two bright or not bright enough.

Second, can we just look at those colors. How absolutely gorgeous! The middle palette would be perfect for me, and I could really see myself wearing those colors year-round. At $22 per palette, I really think it’s a great buy.

That being said, I don’t think I’ll be picking one up right now. 😓 I’m in the middle of a massive declutter of my beauty products. So it wouldn’t make sense to add anything new.

(Note- I will be posting about the declutter soon. I had to send my MacBook into Apple for some repairs. So that’s why I haven’t been posting anything else.)

What do you guys think about these blush trios from Alamar Cosmetics? Yay or nay? Is blush something you have a lot of in your collection?

Bh Cosmetics x It’s My Raye Raye Round 2

Bh Cosmetics and It’s My Raye Raye (Raye Boyce) are teaming up again to do another eyeshadow palette. Unlike the first palette, which was mostly all neutrals and also included face products, this palette is only for the eyes and is quite colorful.

I really enjoyed the first collaboration. I liked it so much that I gave it as a gift to someone just starting out in makeup because I felt it was the perfect palette for all occasions. The quality was also phenomenal.

I say all that to say that I think this palette will be of equally high quality. I like that the first row is everyday wearable mid-tone shades with the bottom two rows being matte and shimmer versions of bright colors.

If you are looking for a bright palette, I would highly recommend trying this. It’s inexpensive and, if history is an indicator, the quality will be really good. That being said, I’m going to pass on this for myself. I am not really into bright colors these days, so I don’t see myself using this often.

What are you thoughts? Are these colors perfect for the summer? Did you try the first collaboration?

New mini palette for Spring from Wander Beauty

New at Sephora for spring is a cute six pan palette from Wander Beauty.

Available now for $25, I think this is a really cute companion mini, perfect for this time of year. The only thing it’s missing is a mid-toned shade for the crease, and it’d be a really great everyday palette.

Personally, I will be skipping this one because I already have all of these colors in my collection, both as a part of other palettes and as single shadows. Since I would still want to bring in other shades, grabbing this palette wouldn’t be beneficial to me.

What your your thoughts on this one? An essential for spring, or are the shades too common?

New from Stila, eyeshadow made with….glass?!? 😳

Stila has recently released two new eyeshadow palettes in their website- After Hours and Happy Hour.

I thought both were really pretty, but was especially drawn to the warm-toned After Hours palette. It just seemed like something I could get a lot of use from.

That was until I read the ingredients list. Several shades in both palettes contained an alarming ingredient- glass.

I have never seen glass or glass beads listed as an ingredient. I don’t know what the purpose is, or how small the beads are, safety, etc.. However, I know, for sure, that I can do without an eyeshadow palette with glass in it.

What are your thoughts on glass beads in eyeshadow? Have you seen such an ingredient before? Let’s chat!

Beach-friendly travel set from Too Faced

New from Too Faced, and available now is a super cute travel set perfect for the summer. The set comes with the waterproof Better Tham Sex mascara and a bronzer.

I think this is a perfect option to throw in your makeup bag, whether it’s for everyday or travel. If you’re in a rush or for a more natural look, bronzer is a perfect multi-use product. You can dust it on the perimeter of your face over a CC or BB cream and then sweep it across the lids for a quick wash of color. Add a little mascara, and it’s a look.

What are you thoughts on this one? I currently am trying to pare down my collection, but is this something that you guys would go for?

Ciate London x Jessica Rabbit

Ciate London recently released a collection “in collaboration with” Jessica Rabbit.

I have to admit, I saw the announcements for this release a while ago, but it took me a while to settle my thoughts on it.

Here’s where I landed: I’m not interested. I do think the concept is cool. I feel like the theme is a unique one that my generation could appreciate, but the collection itself, especially the eyeshadow palette just isn’t something I need in my collection.

The colors are okay, but nothing different than I’ve seen before. The biggest detractor for me, though, was that Ciate London keeps releasing eyeshadow palettes, and everyone keeps ignoring them or saying that the quality isn’t good.

What do you guys think? Do you like Ciate London? Am I being to hard on them? Let’s chat!
