Pixi by Petra · Glow In A Box

 

One of the latest arrivals from Pixi Beauty, this Glow In A Box is truly well named, as the products it contained were [probably] designed to get you holiday ready … or maybe even visible from space, yes? Sure, everything here is utterly brilliant & sparkly and yet somehow against all odds, these products are also totally wearable. And since there really aren’t any beauty rules, who says you can’t wear shimmer during the daytime — or anytime you’re totally feeling it?

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. The rich autumnal shades are interspersed with some unique pops of colour to keep things interesting, and even though I’m not exactly looking forward to the upcoming cooler weather, these pieces are making a strong case for the season, dammit. #resistanceisfutile

Fenty Beauty · Diamond Bomb & Diamond Milk

 

For Fenty Beauty‘s 1st birthday, Rihanna drew inspiration from the glittering sheer dress she wore at the 2014 CFDA Awards, creating Diamond Bomb and Diamond Milk — both utterly brilliant products, both in terms of their concept and how beautifully each wears. Oh, and since I began writing this post, all I can hear in my head is “shine bright like a diamond” (so sorry for the ear worm …)

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?
