Morning Makeup Musings #68

Did ABH accidentally release the new UD Naked palette early? 😩

Back when Urban Decay announced that it was discontinuing the original Naked Palette with the grandeur of a funeral, lots of people speculated that it would soon be releasing a new palette in its place. They were right, but were they expecting this?

Here’s the thing…the new Naked Reloaded looks a lot like the Sultry palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It is a neutral palette with a pop of coral. First of all, coral was a random shade for Sultry. Now to see it here in this context is just….

The fact that it’s an ABH dupe aside, another thing I noticed about this palette is what its missing. All of the other Naked palettes have dual-ended brushes included. This one does not. What it does have, though, it bigger pan sizes on some of the shades expected to be most popular.

I think I am going to go ahead and skip this release. I thought about getting it because I like the colors (obviously since I already have the Sultry palette), but…I already have the Sultry palette. Idk. If this were another brand, like Bad Habit, would I support such a close (*cough* exact *cough*) copy of a palette. 😬

What do you guys think? Will you grab it over (or in addition to) the Sultry palette? Do the (nominally) larger pan sizes make up for the lack of  brush? Let’s chat in the comments below!

Morning Makeup Musings #44

Fenty Beauty has announced the release of their new complexion products, and the beauty community is shook.

The biggest story currently in the makeup news cycle is the release of the newest products from Fenty Beauty.

If you have not yet heard, Fenty Beauty is adding two more items to its insanely popular Pro Filt’r line. The new Pro Filt’r concealer, dropping this week (January 11th), will be available in….. FIFTY shades…… Concealer in fifty shades. (*slow claps* Fenty does it again.) To set this new concealer, Fenty is also releasing 8 shades of Pro Filt’r Transculent Setting powder. In addition to these two brand new products, they will also be adding ten more shades to their Pro Filt’r foundation.

Fenty continues to raise the bar for inclusivity in makeup. As such, I want to support the launch, but I have not had a lot of success with their products. I did try their foundation back when it launched in 2017, and unfortunately, it made my face burn so badly that I had to wash it off before I could even blend it out. I don’t have sensitive skin and I’ve never reacted like that to any beauty product (even skincare) so I have no clue what happened there.

I think I will add the concealer to my February list of products to try, but I will have to go into Sephora and do a patch test first. As far as the powder, since I am trying to pan the Coty Airpun, and still have my Hourglass Veil, I don’t want to buy anymore at the moment. However, once the warmer weather comes back, I will put it on my list then.

Are you guys planning on jumping on this new launch? Do you think it will sell out as fast as the Pro Filt’r foundation did?

Major announcement: Dove is now certified cruelty-free

Hi guys!

I am super excited to announce that Dove, a true OG in beauty products has just announced that it is now certified cruelty-free by PETA!!

I am so happy to see a major Unilever brand moving in the right direction. Not only is the brand super affordable, but tons of its products have been proven tried and true for generations. I remember my grandmother exclusively used Dove Beauty Bars for her sensitive skin.

I will definitely be running out to the store in the next several days to pick up some Dove products.

What are some of your favorites from the brand? Let’s chat!
