Kim Kardashian West launching KKW Beauty with Creme Contour and Highlight Kits

The modern day queen of contouring is finally entering the beauty industry with her own line of cream contour products. Kim Kardashian West will be releasing the first product of her new line, KKW Beauty, at the end of this month. The contour kits, officially titled Creme Contour and Highlight Kits, will included two dual ended cream sticks and a dual ended brush and sponge applicator. The first cream stick includes a matte highlight shade on one end and a shimmer highlight shade at the other end. The contour stick is similar but includes two contour shades on either side.

Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter in ‘Molten Gold’

I’m a huge fan of highlighters and the more golden goddess-y / bling all in your face / see me from Mars, the better! Usually reserved for indie or luxury beauty brands, it’s rare to see a quality highlighter from a drugstore brand, save for NYX Cosmetics or Makeup Revolution (which you still can’t usually find at your corner drugstore). So when Maybelline dropped their first Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter, you know I had to have it.

I ordered their first shade ‘Molten Gold’ via Amazon and it got to me in two days. With an already low retail price of $8 and my free prime shipping, I’d say that was a pretty darn good deal. I wasn’t really sure what to expect with the formula since this product is brand new to the Maybelline line. When I first swatched it, I wasn’t blown away by the powdery feel. It reminded me of how the Ofra ‘You Dew You’ and ‘You Glow Girl’ highlighters are, but the product didn’t glide on as smoothly when I took my finger to my arm for a swatch. Aside from that fact, it blended beautifully and definitely lived up to the ‘Master Chrome’ name!

First Impression: MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinishes ‘Superb’ & ‘Glow With It’

When MAC announced the return of one of its most popular formulas, people went wild. Now as the extra dimension skinfinishes have begun a gradual re-release (slowly with Oh Darling! in 2015 and now a slew of shades in 2017), everyone is in a frenzy to get their hands on them once again. I purchased two shades, Superb (repromote) and Glow With It (new), to try out for myself. My thought? Read on below!

Upcoming Collection: Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit ‘Aurora’

 

The Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Aurora’ Glow Kit will launch April 4, 2017 at anastasiabeverlyhills.com. Based on the $40 price tag for all the other Glow Kits, I assume that the price will be the same for Aurora. The Glow Kit will be sold at other retailers later this year.

In 2017, we are continuing the ‘Year of the Glow’ at SBD headquarters. It’s only right that all retailers do the same! Anastasia Beverly Hills clearly got the memo because the brand is about to release their second Glow Kit of the year: Aurora. This 6-pan palette is described as the Moonchild Glow Kit’s ‘sister’ due to the similar holographic shade range they share between them. I’m a fan of Moonchild, so it’s safe to say that I will be picking this one up as well. Keep scrolling for pictures!
