Beauty, Blush, Eyebrow, Eyeliner, Eyeshadow, Limited Edition, Lipstick, Makeup, Mascara

This summer is filled with new makeup collections being released from a few of the brands that I absolutely love. I am always excited for a new collection, especially summer ones filled with bright colors and a lot of shimmer!

Dior Color Icons Collection- This collection is to be released in the fall, and it is absolutely beautiful. This is their first ever Pre-fall color collection so there will be a lot of buzz around it! The collection has 2 new lipsticks, a 3 color eye shadow palette, 2 single eye shadow palettes,1 liquid eyeliner, 2 fluid sticks, 1 blush, and 3 nail polishes. Dior is out of my price range, but if I was to splurge, it would certainly be on one of their beautiful lipsticks,fluid sticks, or the triple palette because I love all gold eye shadow and I can never have too many. The fluid stick is basically a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss, I have tried them on before and they really stand in a league of their own. At first, this collection will be exclusive to Nordstrom but for those of you that don’t have a Nordstrom near you, just go on their website. Obviously only images have been released so there are no swatches but as soon as I get my hands on the physical products I will review them!

illamasqualipillimasquablush

Illamasqua Matte Effect Collection- This collection is right up my alley! It is to be released sometime this summer. Surprisingly, I have never owned anything from this brand but I hear amazing things about both their blushes and lipsticks. This is a mini collection with just 1 blush and 3 Matte Lip Liquids. The liquids come in clear tubes that look like gloss, go on wet, and apparently dry to matte within seconds. From the swatches I’ve seen, they remind me of the LimeCrime Velvetines that I have written about in an earlier post. I honestly could not choose what color I want, I may have to have them both. Forbidden is a beautiful blue based mid tone pink that reminds me of cotton candy. Surrender is a peachy pale pink color.Exotic is a true bright orange which I obviously am all about. It’s certainly the bolder choice of the three, but it looks beautiful and orange is totally on trend right now. The blush, flirtatious, is a peachy/orangey color that would go great paired with the Exotic lip liquid. Obviously as the name suggests it is completely matte and I think it will pair well with both light and dark complexions because its a very versatile color.

lorac2

Lorac Pro Palette 2- For those of you not familiar with the original Lorac Pro Palette, it is a staple of many eye shadow collections. Obviously not as widely known as the Urban Decay Naked Palette, but its up there. Like its successor, the pro palette 2 has pretty much every color you could want or need, ranging from completely matte to shimmer overload. It has amazing colors for a smokey eye and also colors to complement your every day look. A lot of the colors are pretty basic, but I find the 2 palette has a few more outside the box colors than the first. It is originally being released exclusively at ulta, so again if you don’t have one near you, go for the website. It doesn’t hurt that their website always seems to have some type of special promotion or discount going on!

 

My product wish list!

Beauty, Bronzer, Illuminator, Lipstick, Makeup, One Step Correct

stillaonestep

Stila One Step Correct This product has been on my wish list for some time but I swore to myself I would finish up all my other similar products first! It comes in a swirly pump with the colors green brown mixed together. I think this product is perfect for the daytime as a standalone. It does a great job at reducing redness and makes my skin appear smooth and even. The texture feels like a moisturizer and sinks right in. It seems to act a primer as well and is the perfect base to throw on some bronzer and blush.

Laura Mercier Baked Body Bronzer This product just screams shimmer straight from the pan. I’m usually not a fan of baked bronzers but this one has me hooked. It’s a little pricey coming in around 55 but I must say it is a huge compact. This bronzer is perfect for the all over sun kissed and shimmery glow. Not to mention it’s a body bronzer so you can brush it all over yourself, can’t beat that!

mactarttrendy

Mac Tart & Trendy Lipstick I am a huge mac buff and I’m obsessed with all things orange so why wouldn’t I want to get my hands on every orange lipstick they make. I currently rock Morange all the time but this color is screaming my name! A girl can never have too many lipsticks, especially MAc ones!

kogendo

Koh Gen Do illuminatior I got this as a an 100 point gift from the Sephora website and it ended up lasting me over a month. Not until I went to my local Sephora to purchase it did I realize it was 40 dollars and I just couldn’t squeeze it. However, this brand is up there with the best. Recently I’ve been loving japanese makeup brands and koh gen do is awesome and has some really interesting products. This illuminatior literally makes me look like an angel. It gives the perfect amount of sheen to liven you up and you hardly have to use any product. It’s a shiny liquid that I liked to mix with my foundation to give myself an all over glow. If you’re looking to splurge on a liquid luminizer, this is it.

limecrime

Limecrime Velvetines Lip Gloss I don’t actually know how I don’t own one of these yet, but of all the products on this list I am most likely to purchase a Velvetines. I see these “glosses” on blogs all the time and from the looks of it they are not glossy at all. It comes with a standard lip gloss wand but on the lips they literally do look like velvet. They only have 3 colors currently but both the coraland the red that I’ve seen are stunning. They look like they might be a bit drying but based on what I’ve heard that is not the case. This will be my first Limecrime purchase so il keep you guys updated!
