Happy HAULidays! I wanted to share some of my most recent purchases. I basically used Christmas as an excuse to buy new goodies! Read till the end for a special BONUS item that is super hot this season!
An extra special package that came in today! I CANNOT wait to try this color out to test its durability during a normal day of wear-and-tear.
You can’t deny that ColourPop Cosmetics has had a GREAT year. Their “Lippie Stix” (an innovative new name for lipsticks) and Color Shock Eyeshadows have been popping up in loads of Instagram posts and YouTube tutorials. What’s next for the fun-filled company? A collection of matte eyeshadows.
ColourPop Cosmetics made a Christmas morning announcement that puts Santa to shame. Fans of the brand will be clammoring for a collection of 14 all new matte eyeshadows dropping TONIGHT at 12AM PST (3AM EST). Known for their unique “is it gel? is it powder” consistency, ColourPop has made huge strides in the beauty world this year. These affordable, high-quality products are a must for your post-Christmas shopping list. What will you be buying?
MAC is bringing out some pretty vibrant tones with this collection. Get ready for royal blue, deep purples, and elegant golds.
MAC’s collaboration with Chinese socialite and jewelry designer Bao Bao Wan is bringing us color! The collection appeared on MAC’s website earlier this year in one of a series of online collection release glitches experienced by the company. However, the items with a March 2015 release date have completely redesigned, limited edition packaging. So even if you were lucky and got it the first time, you might want to get a backup this time with the LE packaging. Check out more sneak peeks below!
Forty-five, yes 45 items coming this February from dynamic duo Isabel and Ruben Toledo! Isabel is a Tony-award winning designer known for creating the First Lady Michelle Obama’s first inauguration look. Her husband Ruben is an painter, sculptor, and illustrator who often collaborates with his wife. With such an artistic background, I am expecting lots of fun and unique new products!
She is an avid promoter of a red lip. He is an avid promoter of whatever she wants. So it is safe to say we will see LOTS of red in this collection! MAC seems to be relying a lot on the popularity of the staple red lip as it just released the redRedRED collection this month. However, with 45 products, I believe it is safe to say these products will be completely different. As for packaging, will MAC keep the now-iconic black and silver bullet for the lipsticks? Or will they give collectors something to drool over? I guess we will have to wait until February 5, 2015 (January 29th online, February 2nd Nordstrom) to see what comes out! But if Ruben Toledo has his way, we will see some of his original artwork all over the new products. Take a peek at the design below!
Release date: December 23, 2014 (online); December 26, 2014 (in-stores, North American only), January 2015 (internationally)
