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 ;)



Makeup Revolution Foundation

Launching on 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 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 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

  • 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 ;)

New Makeup Releases | What I'm Buying

There are TONS of new makeup releases coming up in the next few weeks and I wanted to break them all down for you guys and let you know what I'm buying and not buying. Check out the video below and the other makeup releases I didn't mention for the sake of time!



Absolutely buying this! NYX Professional Makeup collaborated with Alissa Ashley to create a line of foundation with a full range of shades for all skin tones. Must support! Let me know if you'd like for me to review this foundation.

  • 45 Full Coverage Shades
  • $15
  • Launching August 18th 


I will not be buying these palettes just because I do know I have the same shades in the boss babe palette in other palettes and I feel no need to have more colors in this collection at the moment, however I do think they are cute and perfect for travel if this looks good to you! I cannot comment on the quality as I haven't tried her palettes.


  • Everyday warm neutrals with a pop of gold
  • $19


  • Palette full of colors for the perfect pop for a night out
  • $19


This palette is in collaboration with the daughter of Anastasia, Norvina! She works in the company and this is the palette she came out with.

Makeup Revolution Visionary Palette

If you aren't happy with spending $42 on the ABH Norvina Palette, Makeup Revolution is coming out with this palette that is a pretty close dupe to the Norvina

  • Launching 7/27/2018
  • $7




I loved the Morphe 39A Dare to Create Palette from their holiday collection and out of no where they decided to bring it back to the site! I did have a small issue with the really bright purple and pink colors staining my eye after I used them but it only stained for a day and it was back to normal, but this palette has super diverse colors and is perfect for all occasions. It's available now for $34.
