Juvia’s Place The Warrior | Swatch Stories #2

Bonus story this week since I was out of commission last week.

As a true makeup junkie, it is very easy to neglect makeup that I already own in favor of what’s new. This year, to get more use from my existing collection, I have decided to start a new series: Swatch Stories. Using one palette per month, I will do weekly posts of a different color combination.

This month’s palette is The Warrior by Juvia’s Place. I chose this palette because it is easy to underestimate the versatility of a neutral palette.

Three kinds of matte bullet lipsticks?

Good morning!

“Who said there is only one kind of Matte?”

That’s what Italian indie makeup brand, Nabla, is asking us all. On February 7th, they will be releasing three brand new matte bullet lipstick formulas. Here’s are the descriptions of each:

Provided I find shades that I like and would wear, I am definitely planning on grabbing one of each of these formulas. Not only do they sound super interesting (especially the Bounce Matte), but I’d like to compare them to each other.

Will they really be that different? What do you guys think about this release? Let’s chat!

Casey Homes has a new set in collaboration with Physician’s Formula.

Casey Holmes, one of my favorite YouTubers, has just released her newest collaboration with Physicians’ Formula. This box set contains 6 Butter products:

  • Butter Bronzer
  • Butter Blush
  • Butter Highlighter
  • 4 Butter Eyeshadows
  • Butter lipstick
  • Butter purfume

As much as I love Casey’s channel, I will not be buying this product. I am not a fan of the PF Butter formula scent, so I would not want an entire collection (including a perfume) that has it. Scent aside, I would not use half of the collection. The bronzer is too light for my skin tone, and the shades of the eyeshadows don’t speak to me. I’m also am not a fan of the Butter Blushes. I have one in my collection that I received as a part of a prize package, and I never use it because it’s too glittery.

One thing that I am curious about in this set is the new Butter lipstick formula. I did see that those are currently available on Ulta’s website (this set isn’t available there yet, only at physiciansformula.com). I have tried other PF lip products in the past and I think that those are something that they do extremely well with. So, the next time I make an Ulta purchase, I will grab one of those.

What do you guys think? Is this a collab you’re definitely going to support and purchase? Let’s chat in the comments below.

A luxury multi-use makeup set?

I love a good multi-use cream product. I recently rediscovered my Milk Makeup Lip + Cheek stick and have been loving it. If you love creams and you’re in the market for a luxury lip + cheek set, Lilah B. has recently released their Say It Out Loud Divine Duo Lip & Cheek Trio.

This is a limited edition set that the brand is offering for $89, but they say it is a value of $138. Each of these creams comes with 0.08oz, and can be used on the eyes, lips and face. Considering that these multipurpose Divine Duos are regularly $46 each, that’s a great deal. You’re getting one free plus some.

Personally, I am going to pass on this set. I think they are great for summer and people who enjoy bright colors often. Had this set included some of their regular colors, I definitely think I would’ve been swayed. Their regular line of colors are more neutral and include shades like mauve and beige (looks like a rosy brown tone) because they are less bright and something I could see myself wearing often.

This is a brand that I am hoping to try in 2019. I am transitioning into more cream and they have tons of cream products. Additionally, a lot of their products are considered “Clean” by Sephora. So I am hoping that they release a similar set in the future with different shades.

What do you guys think? Have you tried any luxury multi-use products? Would a set like this be of interest to you?

This new eyeshadow palette is really trying my resolve to buy less makeup.

Good morning!

Makeup Maniac Cosmetics has released their Peanut Butter & Jealous eyeshadow palette, and guys, it’s beautiful.

To be honest, I REALLY want this palette. It’s only $23 and the colors are perfect for fall and winter. I love the mix of olive green, mauve, burgundy with the various shades of brown. The gold in the center is the perfect shimmer color to compliment all of the other colors.

Honestly, I am probably going to get this palette, but I will wait until after I have the Warrior palette from Juvia’s Place. I think they may have similar vibes, even though the JP palette is all matte. This one is going on my “maybe” list, but it’s definitely a hard one to pass up. Hopefully, if I do decide to get it, it is still in stock. You always run the risk of actually missing out with small indie brands.

What do you guys think? Would you jump on this one, especially knowing quantities are limited?

Blush Tribe has finally reeled me in. They have announced a new palette that is very different from any of their previous releases, and I have got to have it.

Good morning!

So, my favorite indie brand to watch, Blush Tribe, has announced a new palette in collaboration with makeup artist, Sonia Zarine.

We don’t have any release dates yet, but I will be watching closely because I really want this palette. The Blush Tribe palettes are usually ultra colorful, and not ones that I would get a ton of use from, but I can see myself grabbing this one a lot, for both day and night looks.

The owner of Blush Tribe said that this palette was created in response to many requests from makeup artists to make a palette that they can use on their deeper-skinned clients. I love that because this will work perfectly for me. Since I don’t know when it will be released, I am going to have to save some room in my beauty budget to grab it when it is.

What do you guys think about this palette? It’s definitely different from what Blush Tribe usually releases.
