Urban Decay · Naked Cherry Collection

 

Today my blog is celebrating it’s 8th birthday and I even though I have several special things coming up to commemorate this milestone, I thought I’d get down & dirty first … the beauty way, of course. Just when I thought that Urban Decay had taken the whole “Naked” theme as far as it would go, along comes this latest Naked Cherry Collection to prove me wrong. I also happen to have a major weakness for red/berry hues — in particular eye shadows — and from the minute I saw this palette, I just knew it would sit right in my wheelhouse. In case you’re wondering, I was right. So, so right.

Dior · Dior En Diable Fall 2018

 

Just one look at the Dior en Diable Collection for Fall 2018, and there’s no doubting that Peter Philips — Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup — was inspired by Fall’s glorious riot of colour.

Pixi Beauty · Pixi Pretties Collection 2018

 

Pixi Beauty products have been steadily gaining ground in my makeup routine, and as a girl who tends to lean more towards luxury beauty, no one is more surprised by this revelation, than me. Several weeks ago, a package came in containing the Pixi Pretties Collection for 2018 –comprised of the latest collaborative efforts between Pixi and 3 beauty influencers — and I couldn’t wait to crack everything open and, well … play. I’m seriously like a kid in a toy store whenever I’m around makeup and who can blame me when stuff like this comes in?

NARS · 7 Deadly Sins Palette & Brow Perfector

 

Spinning transgressions into beauty might seem like quite the stretch, yet somehow NARS has managed that with the release of the 7 Deadly Sins Palette, turning something with ominous biblical overtones into a little work of lip art. To go with this palette are the brand’s new Brow Perfectors — straightforward pencils that need no instruction manual on use. Yes, please.

Dior · Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge & Ink Lip Liner

 

 

Dior has just upped the lipstick game with the recent launch of Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge — a range of 26 long-wearing shades housed in covetable red lacquered casings, along with Rouge Dior Ink Lip Liner — a hybrid lip product that just might be masquerading as a pen (not really, but still …). Gorgeous exteriors, innovative formulas, killer colours … what more does a girl need?
