Buy or Bust: New Makeup Announcements and Releases

We're back with another buy or bust, new makeup announcements and releases! Besides all the drama in the beauty community, there are ton's of new releases and moves happening by makeup companies that I wanted to tell you guys about. Check it all out here and see whether or not I'm buy the new makeup launching on the market: 

Makeup Announcements

Kylie Cosmetics is Coming to Ulta

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 10.52.59 AM.png

Kylie announced on her twitter that Kylie Cosmetics will be coming to Ulta stores soon and Ulta confirmed this! This is super exciting as Ulta (as you guys know) is one of the countries largest retailers of makeup. I'm also excited because you guys know I do not like buying makeup online which is one of the main reasons I never have bought anything from Kylie, but now I'll be able to swatch, feel, and see her products in front of my eyes to determine the perfect shades for me so you may be seeing Kylie in my makeup collection in the near future!

Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty

Speaking of Ulta, they are now starting their 21 days of beauty, which is an event Ulta frequently hosts to deliver us 21 days of straight deals! Check out my blog post here on what the makeup deals are for all of Ulta's 21 days of beauty!

New Makeup Releases

Too Faced Peaces & Cream Extended Collection

Launching September 4th

Will I be buying?

I absolutely will be buying everything in this collection (but maybe only a few lip shades!) I'm obsessed with everything peach and the versatility of this extended collection is making me want to purchase my first ever Too Faced products!

Urban Decay Elements Collection

Launching on QVC September 8th and online on September 10th

Will I be buying?

I am very interested to see how the eyeshadows perform as Urban Decay can sometimes be a hit or miss. Their shadows are described to be a mixture of matte and holographic shades so I will definitely be living for the holographic shadows! The highlighter will be a pass for me as I'm not so obsessed with their formula.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Palette?

As of today (Sept.4), Urban Decay confirmed the launch of their new Naked Cherry collection, this will include: 

  • Eyeshadow Palette
  • 3 Lipsticks
  • Cherry scented All Nighter Setting Spray
  • 2 Eye Liners
  • A Cheek and Highlight Palette

**All details are coming from Urban Decay's instagram. No launch date yet, but will keep you informed

 

Huda Beauty Concealers

Launching sometime in October

I mentioned this in the video because I am all about trying new complexion products and Huda did an Instagram tutorial using their new concealers. I do address my issues about buying from Huda Beauty in the video so you'll have to check that out to see if I will be purchasing this come October ;)

 

ADDITIONAL BUY OR BUST MAKEUP RELEASES

Makeup Revolution Foundation

Launching on revolutionbeauty.com on September 5th

  • 24 shades to match the line of concealers
  • Full coverage, cruelty free and vegan
  • $12

Will I be buying?

Most likely because I'm a sucker for any kind of new foundation, plus it's pretty affordable for a foundation, so why not! ;) 

KKW Beauty Ultra Light Beams Collection

Available on kkwbeauty.com now

  • 6 new ultra-light beams shades
  • Holographic for the eyes and lips

Will I be buying?

No. Too out of my price range and they are not sold as singles, but only as a full collection, gloss bundle, or powder bundle. I'm not a fan of having to buy a bundle of products, especially if there are colors I do not want, so I don't believe it's worth it, especially for just pigments and glosses. Sorry Kim!

Summer Friday's Overtime Mask

Available now on SummerFridays.com and at Sephora starting September 4th

  • Newest addition to the brand started by Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores
  • $44

Will I be buying?

Absolutely! I absolutely love the Jet Lag Mask they came out with, even though I'm an oily skin girl. This mask seems way more up my alley as it is meant to exfoliate, polish and brighten the skin. This will definitely be added to my skin care collection, but I'm waiting to buy it at Sephora, because, points and Ebates cash back online ;) 

Halo Beauty Kiwi Seed Skin Booster

Available now on halobeauty.com

  • Skin supplement by Tati Westbrooks brand
  • Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles*
  • Supports Collagen and Keratin Production*
  • Supports Clear and Radiant Complexion*
  • Supports a Natural Moisture Barrier for Firm, Hydrated, and Rejuvenated Skin*
  • Inhibits Bacteria, Balances pH, and Renews Skin*

Will I be buying?

Not going to lie... I'm pretty intrigued! I wasn't interested in the hair vitamin but anything that has to do with skin, I'm willing to try! I may or may not be purchasing this... comment down below on if I should/if you want a review of it!

 

**will be adding more soon, stay tuned ;)

KKW Beauty Peach Collection Dupes

We all are looking for KKW Beauty peach collection dupes! If you’re anything like me, Kim Kardashian West intrigues you. Her entire brand is so chic and modern that you find yourself loving EVERYTHING about her brand – from the packaging to the font on the front of the product.

We’re so lucky that she continues to create some of the most gorgeous lipstick shades we’ve ever seen, but purchasing them all can add up very quickly. Each Peach Crème Lipstick retails for $18. They are formulated with oils and extracts in order to hydrate your lips and also offer a smooth application.

One of the things that I love the most about this collection is her dedication to create nude shades that can suit many skin tones – not just pale. Each shade can be used on any skin tone given the peachy undertone!

You NEED these shades in your collection, but you don’t HAVE to pay the price! Here are my dupes for each one!

Surprise Sephora VIB Sale Haul + SHOPPING TIPS

Sephora decided to surprise us with a beauty insider appreciation event/VIB sale and I wanted to show you my haul and tips for shopping the sale! Here are the details of the event:

Beauty Insider Appreciation Event

August 24th - September 3rd

Rouge Members: 8/24 20% off YESROUGE

VIB: 8/30 15% off YESVIB

INSIDER: 8/30 10% off YESINSIDER

 

WHAT I BOUGHT

BENEFIT PRECISELY MY BROW #5

HOURGLASS MINERAL VEIL PRIMER

TOO FACED BORN THIS WAY CONCEALER

SAPPHIRE BEAUTYBLENDER

ARTIST COUTURE DIAMOND GLOW POWDER “ILLUMINATI”

FENTY BEAUTY INVISIMATTE BLOTTING POWDER 

**NOT MENTIONED IN VIDEO BECAUSE I HAD TO BUY ONLINE:

KAT VON D SHADE + LIGHT REFILL “LYRIC”

VITAL PROTEINS BEAUTY COLLAGEN

 

SHOPPING Tips:

1. Stock Up on Essentials

Whether you are getting 10% off or 20% off, it's still something! We all know Sephora never has sales, and their "sale items" are few and far between. This is the perfect time to stock up on the products that you use every day! Here are a few of mine: 

2. Splurge on the Expensive Items

There are a TON of pretty expensive items that I am tempted by at Sephora between skin care and hair that I can never get myself to buy. But 20% off a $400 blow dryer? I can't pass that up, especially if I've been eyeing it for a while!

3. Add Products to Your Cart The Night Before

I usually recommend this for those of you who are not Rouge. Typically when the sale starts for VIB and Beauty Insiders, a lot of the good products are already sold out. If you add your favorite products to your cart the night before, all you have to do is wake up and check out, OR wait until midnight and get whatever is in your cart so you don't have to worry about missing out!

4. Gift's and Gift Sets

I believe this is just a surprise  beauty insider appreciation sale from Sephora, which means there will be another VIB sale sometime this year, but it never hurts to stock up on holiday gifts now! I usually enjoy the curated Sephora gift sets and these are always safe gifts for friends and family who are beauty lovers to experiment with new products! Here are some of my favorites:

5. Overnight Shipping

If you're shopping online for the sale, beware! Last sale, I stocked up on all of my favorite items just to have to wait 3 weeks to get them because I chose standard shipping. If you want them right away, go ahead and select the fastest shipping method. This may bring your total back up to the 10-20% discount you got, but if you are patient enough, you'll get them eventually!

 

Happy shopping!
