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!!!!

IT Cosmetics: ‘It’s Your Complexion Perfection’ 4 Piece Collection on QVC

QVC UK started selling IT Cosmetics last year and since then, I have been eager to try out some of their products.  As of last week, QVC UK started selling the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream as part of a special 4 piece collection.  I’ve heard a lot of great things about this product (Emilynoel83 loves it), along with the other items in the collection, and so I couldn’t resist ordering it for myself.  The collection was also available last weekend for a ‘Today’s Special Value’ deal of £47.89, rather than £65, as part of QVC UK’s Beauty Weekend.  So I just had to get it!

I thought I’d do a post showing what the collection looks like and giving a quick overview of the products inside.  I’ve just received the set and not yet had a chance to play around with the products.  I  might do a few other posts providing more information on what I think of the products once I’ve used them and more detailed product pictures  (let me know in the comments section if you would like to see these types of posts).

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.

If you are a fan of the Anastasia Glow Kits, you might be excited to hear that the brand is releasing an Ultimate Glow Kit for the holiday season.  The Ultimate Glow Kit will contain six gold-toned highlighters, ranging from snowy white to sparkly amber.  I have the Gleam Glow Kit and love it, so I am looking forward to seeing the new Ultimate Glow Kit when it launches.  You can read more and see photos at Temptalia here.

Nude colours more your thing? If so, you might like the new Bare Minerals Gen Nude Collection.  The Gen Nude Collection has 60 lip shades across 4 different finishes, including lipsticks, glosses, liquid lip colours and lip liners.  The range promises to provide nudes in a range of colour tones, such as beige, pink, peach and mauve.  Worth a look if you love nudes! You can read more on the Bare Minerals website here.  If you also like the idea of trying out the lipsticks but aren’t sure where to start, Bare Minerals is releasing an 8-piece collection of mini-sized Gen Nude lipsticks.  You can read more about the 8-piece collection here.

Kat Von D make-up is now available in the UK and Ireland! The brand is available exclusively from Debenhams online.  You can see the products here.

QVC UK is now stocking Essie nail polish.  I am a huge fan of Essie nail polishes and so I was super excited to hear that QVC is now stocking the brand.  QVC often has incredible offers and exclusive shades and so I am looking forward to see what products they release.  You can view the Essie QVC UK pages here.

If you were a fan of the highly coveted Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, then you might be excited to hear that the brand are planning to release a number of other Sweet Peach products.  Products mentioned on the Too Faced Instagram pages include: the Mini Sweet Peach Palette (sneak peek here), the Sweet Peach Glow Palette (sneak peek here) and the Papa Don’t Peach Blush Palette (sneak peak here).  Too Faced has also announced that they will be re-releasing the Sweet Peach Palette again in November (see more here).  Exciting!!!!

If you are on the lookout for a new mascara, all Kiko mascaras are currently reduced to £3.90.  That’s right, £3.90! I’m not sure how long the offer will last, so it’s worth having a look if you have always fancied trying Kiko mascaras.  The offer is available in store and online.  You can view Kiko mascaras here.

Being a make-up lover, I love watching YouTube videos, reading make-up blogs and browsing in stores to see all of the fun products out there.  I thought it would be fun to write a new type of post passing on information on new products, collections and other make-up related goodness.  I hope you enjoy reading this type of post too!

I recently found out that a Charlotte Tilbury counter will be opening in House of Fraser, Glasgow! Very, very exciting, particularly given that there aren’t any counters in Scotland.  The counter will be opening on Thursday 8 September in the section where the MAC counter used to be located (MAC has moved to where Yo Sushi used to be).

Kat Von D make-up is coming to the UK and Ireland! The brand will be available exclusively to Debenhams online.  You can read more about the launch here.

Bare Minerals has just added to their foundation line-up with the new BarePro Performance Wear Powder Foundation.  BarePro is a pressed mineral powder foundation and comes in 20 shades.  You can read more about this product here.

Urban Decay will be launching several new products as part of their Fall/Autumn collection.  Products will include two Vice Lip Palettes, the Naked Ultimate Basics Palette (see more on Temptalia here), the Naked Ultimate Illumination Trio (see more on XSparkage here), Urban Lashes and Moondust liquid eyeshadows.  They will also be re-launching vintage eyeshadows, lipsticks and nail polishes as part of their 20 year anniversary.  You can see a sneak peek of the Fall/Autumn launches on the Urban Decay Instagram page here and the Teen Vogue site here.
