One of my favourite plum lipsticks (MAC Craving) finished a while ago (sob!) and so there was a wee plum coloured gap in my lipstick collection.  Rather than buying the same shade again, I really wanted to try out a similar shade from another brand.  There is something really fun about trying out a similar shade from another brand, particularly one that I haven’t tried before.  Enter Smashbox ‘Be Legendary Lipstick’ in ‘My Digits’!

Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Kat Von D ‘Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette’ launched in October at Debenhams, it took me a wee while to decide whether or not to purchase it.  Not because of the shade selection or the quality (it’s amazing on both counts!) but due to the £52 price tag.  The palette costs more than I would usually spend on an eyeshadow palette and so I really wanted to make sure it would be a good investment for me before forking out for it.  Now that I have it, I am soooooo glad that I got it!!!!

When I was starting to wear make-up in my teens, Rimmel was my go-to brand as it was affordable and reasonably priced.  However, I started to veer away from Rimmel as I got older and began trying out other make-up brands.  The other day, though, I saw a YouTube collaboration video featuring Karima Kimmie and Michelle Crossan showcasing looks using the relatively new Rimmel ‘The Only 1’ Lipstick in the matte formulation, and that brought the brand back to my attention.

The lipstick that Michelle used – 120 – really caught my eye as it was such a beautiful, coral-red shade.  What also really appealed to me was that they found the matte texture to be incredibly comfortable, moisturising and smooth to wear on the lips.  I don’t tend to wear matte lipsticks much as I can find them very drying on the lips.  So when I heard that these lipsticks felt so smooth on the lips and I saw this incredible colour, well, I just had to try them out! Boots also had a ‘2 for £10’ across the Rimmel make-up range, so I picked up another of ‘The Only 1’ lipsticks to try out, this time in their traditional (satin-like) formulation.

Here is some new make-up news for this week:

Benefit is launching a new boxed powder blush! The newest offering in the range will be Galifornia, which is described as a ‘sunny golden pink blusher’.  The idea behind the shade is that it captures the glow of the ‘Californian sunshine in a box’.  Benefit’s boxed blushers usually feature different scents and this one is no different.  Galifornia is said to feature notes of pink grapefruit and vanilla.  According to the official Benefit UK pages, Galifornia will be released on 11 February.  Can’t wait to check this one out as I have a weakness for pink blushers with gold hues! You can read more on the official Benefit UK pages here.

Jerrod Blandino recently posted a sneak peek of Too Faced’s new Love Light Highlighters on his Instagram page.  The highlighters follow Too Faced’s classic heart shaped design for cheek products but this time, come in metallic looking compacts.  I love highlighters, so I can’t wait to check these out! The launch date is advertised as March 2017 so I imagine these will follow in the UK later in the year.  You can see the sneak peek photo here.

Urban Decay has just released a new line called Vice Liquid Lipsticks.  There are 30 shades available across two different finishes: Metallized and Comfort Matte.  The liquid lipsticks are currently available in the USA (click here to see more on the official UD site).  I don’t currently have information on when these will be available in the UK but I will update this post when I find out.  

If you are a fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s cult lip liner Pillow Talk, you might be excited to hear she has released a Matte Revolution lipstick in the same shade.  Exciting if you are a lover of this nude-pink liner and want to colour your pout with a matching lip colour! You can find Pillow Talk lipstick here.

Charlotte Tilbury has also released another new lipstick shade, with the name suggested by social media followers: K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in ‘Valentine’.  Valentine is described as a ‘petal-rose’ pink which gives you a soft, full and kissable looking pout on application.  You can find Valentine lipstick here.

MAC is coming out with a number of colourful lip and lash product offerings for Spring 2017.  The ‘In Extra Dimension Mascara’ launch includes vibrant and colourful mascara colours, ranging from yellow, orange, red, blue and green.  You can read more, see photos and see swatches on ChicProfile.com here.  The ‘ColourRocker’ launch contains 28 vibrant matte lipsticks, ranging from yellows, pinks, greens, teals, greys and blacks.  You can read more on Temptalia here.
