Beauty News & Gossip 14/08/16: Colourpop, Pat McGrath, Kat Von D & More!

Posted on August 14, 2016

Hi Guys!

It’s time again for the latest beauty news and gossip! Let’s take a look at what’s been happening in the land of beauty lately –

kylie-cosmetics-birthday-collection

Kylie Jenner has recently launched her birthday collection of products, which come in rather fancy re-vamped gold packaging – and of course everything sold out in about 3 seconds. Personally, the sheer effort it takes to actually purchase something from Kylie Cosmetics really puts me off the brand, but I’d be interested to hear if any readers actually managed to pick anything up from the birthday collection, and if the products are any good?

Next, I’ve just checked up on the the Too Faced x Nikkie Tutorials collaboration kit and it will be available at Sephora tomorrow! I must admit, I originally wasn’t overly excited about the palette in the set, but now I’ve seen the swatches I think it looks really pretty!

too-faced-sweet-peach-glow-palette

Too Faced are also launching a Sweet Peach Glow palette for Spring 2017 – I actually originally thought this was another eyeshadow palette in the Peach range, but nope, it’s a highlighter palette! I can’t wait to see what the shades will look like! I’m thinking warm peaches and pink tones – exciting!

kailaijumei-lipsticks

Beauty fans will know that Kailijumei lipsticks are one of the latest hot products right now – these amazingly pretty clear lipsticks change colour on application, and also have a flower actually embedded inside the lipstick bullet!

I couldn’t resist nabbing a couple of these myself! My parcel is currently winging its way to me from Kuala Lumpur –  so keep an eye out for them on the blog in (hopefully) the next few weeks.

sugarpill-pro-palette

Sugarpill is one of those brands I often overlook, though I do have a couple of their quad eyeshadow palettes from a few years ago. If you haven’t tried them before, Sugarpill eyeshadows are actually fantastic, and have the most amazing pigmentation. Their Pro Palette is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for bright eyeshadows with fantastic colour payoff.

I also saw some swatches of the new Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lip products, and they just look so gorgeous and summery! I’m trying to resist but think I need them! 🙂

juvias-masquerade-palette

I also came across this Masquerade Palette by Juvias Place which just looks amazing! Definitely another one for the wish list. There are so many amazing ‘Instagram’ beauty brands popping up now – if you know of any more I should check out please do let me know!

We also now have details on the new Pat McGrath products! She’s bringing out three new lip product kits – Vermillion Venom, Bloodwine and Flesh, with each comprising of five products: including two matte lipsticks, a clear gloss, a metallic pigment and a loose glitter. I have to say the colours in these kits look AMAZING – and I really want all of them! They’re $60 per kit and will be available on 30/08.

jeffree-star-new-highlighters

And how could I do a Beauty News & Gossip post without including Jeffree Star? 🙂 Well he has a few new skin frost highlight shades that I wanted to mention. I’m actually really liking the look of Lavender Snow!

kat-von-d-too-faced-better-together-collection

And lastly, Toofaced’s collaboration with Kat Von D is finally happening! This was hinted at a while ago, and I couldn’t wait to find out what they were up to! The Better Together collaboration includes an awesome looking double sided heart shaped palette, which can actually be split in two, as well as some other fab sounding products. Make sure you check out Trendmood1 on Instagran for some more sneak peeks!

Beauty News & Gossip 14/06/16: Jaclyn Hill SCANDAL, Urban Decay, Colourpop, Lime Crime & More!

Posted on June 14, 2016

Hi Guys!

After last week’s first ever Beauty News & Gossip post I’ve decided to make it a (roughly) weekly feature  – enjoy! 😀

jaclyn-hill-becca-eyeshadow-palette-problem

So first up this week – I have to address the Becca X Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette SCANDAL!

After the very exciting and hyped up release of Becca and Jaclyn’s range of collaboration products, including a face palette and an eyeshadow palette, all hell has broken loose. For those who haven’t heard, basically an eagle eyed beauty fanatic who’s particularly fond of Becca eyeshadows noticed that the shadows in the Jaclyn Eyeshadow palette just weren’t up to Becca’s usual high standards.

She then looked into it further and found that the Jaclyn Eyeshadow Palette was made in China, unlike other Becca eyeshadows, and also that it used very different (and significantly inferior) ingredients compared to other Becca shadows. You can see her YT vid here –

Customers then started to come forward and complain about the poor quality of the eyeshadows. Becca then admitted that there was in fact issues with the palette and stopped all sales, and Sephora have also been refunding customers that had already purchased it.

As if this wasn’t bad enough, Jaclyn then proceeded to throw Becca under the bus, so to speak, by saying on Snapchat (so I’ve heard) that she didn’t want to make the eyeshadow palette in the first place, and she didn’t really have much to do with the creation process – completely contradicting a previous YT video where she announced the collaboration products and told viewers that she was hands on from start to finish, and that this was an even collaboration between herself and Becca. Jaclyn has now deleted this video, and I have to say it all seems pretty dodgy to me.

And one final note on the matter… What about all the Youtubers and ‘Influencers’ (I really hate that word) that were sent these products to try before the public launch – there wasn’t one negative review of Jaclyn’s eyeshadow palette! They all said how amazing, how pigmented, how buttery soft and smooth the shadows were – so were they possibly telling fibs to keep the brand happy??

There’s some food for thought anyway – please do let me know what you think about this!

kylie-cosmetics-majesty

Though I’m personally not really interested in Kylie Jenner’s makeup range, I know it’s incredibly popular, so fans will be excited to hear about the new shade Majesty which is a metallic black with blue undertones. It will be available to purchase on 16/06/16.

jeffree-star-lavender-snow-highlighter

And yes it’s Jeffree Star again! Even though he’s just launched a bunch of products, his Lip Ammunition Lipsticks – in satin and glitter finishes and a brand new Highlighter shade, Lavender Snow will also be available very soon.

And while I’m on the subject of Jeffree Star, one of my favourite Youtubers who will always call a spade a spade, Stephanie Nicole has recently posted a product and brand review on Jeffree – it’s a long video but it’s definitely worth a watch.

colourpop-sculpting-stix-and-highlighters

Favourite US budget beauty brand Colourpop also has some pretty awesome new products coming out. So far they’ve been all about the colour cosmetics, but they’re now launching a range of highlighter and contour sticks. At only $5.00 each they’re a complete bargain!

Lime-Crime-Superfoil-Water-Activated-Metallic-Eyeshadow-Duos

Controversial beauty brand Lime Crime have also just launched their Superfoil Water Activated Metallic Eyeshadow Duos, which look pretty amazing! These duos contain a brand new eyeshadow formulation that just requires a spritz of water to activate it. The result is a super high shine foil finish. This product is available in six different duos, which are £12.71 each from Lime Crime.

urban-decay-moondust-palette-preview

And lastly, Urban Decay is launching yet another new palette! Forget about the Naked palettes, this time it’s all about the metallics, the Moondust Palette will include eight new Moondust eyeshadows – I really can’t wait for this one! I don’t know when it will be available as yet, but I’ll let you guys know as soon as I find out.

I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
