#MM KKW Beauty

Just last week I had posted the little tease that Kim Kardashian Beauty was launching soon. Now, it has been updated that the very first product of her beauty line will be a Creme Contour & Highlight Kit and it is being released this Wednesday June 21st here at 12PM EST / 9AM PST. As of right now when you go to KKWBEAUTY.com the only thing you can do is sign up with your email but I am assuming once 12PM EST comes along the site will be accessible. I am sure the question you all must be asking is what is going to be included in the Contour Kit?!

In their Contour Kit you will find a versatile dual-ended brush, one side being a kabuki brush and the other end being a blending sponge. It will also include 2 blending sticks (one contour and one highlight) with two colors and two finishes. (matte & shimmer) There will be 4 different shades: “Light” “Medium” “Dark” and “Deep Dark.”

In true Kardashian style, these kits are expected to sell out in minutes so if this is something you are really looking to own I suggest you mark your calendars and alarms to try to snag one ASAP.

Great Highlighters under $8!

Everyone loves a great find and I think these highlighters not only look great but have been getting good reviews and even better are super affordable!

You probably might have seen this one all over social media and them selling like hot cakes on Amazon but it is looking like Maybelline’s Master Chrome in “Molten Gold” is worth it! It is actually infused with reflective pigments that give a bold glow in a soft powder formula. Just look at the swatches for yourself: (check out my fashion IG too please and thank you- 😉 @mosquerastylesyou)

I do not know if you have heard or actually even tried e.l.f. cosmetics but if you have only seen them but not tried them you have to give them a try! I know their price tags for some may make you skeptical but there quality is actually good and some products can even be compared to more expensive brands for just about the same quality. That being said I am not completely surprised but pleasantly impressed to see their new highlighter (yes it has taken awhile since their last highlighter but it looks like its definitely worth the wait): the latest “Baked Highlighter” : “Apricot Glow” This peach color looks gorgeous and at this price of just $4 I just have to try it myself as well!

#MM New Highlighter Alert!

There have been rumors of Rihanna coming out with her very own makeup! Well just recently she was seen wearing it for the first time, in this pic below during the Fenty Puma pop up shop event in LA this past week! She herself said that “It’s mine, it’s a secret until September!” when asked which highlighter she was wearing. (Please check my fashion & beauty Instagram for the video!)

IMG_3415

Welcome Rihanna into the makeup world; The  Fenty Beauty line will officially be a part of the makeup world in September! The first place you will be seeing Fenty Beauty will be at a Sephora near you!

IMG_3411

From the video, the highlighter that Rihanna had on that day seems like a pinky pearlescent. I also have a picture of a teaser of what their lip color may be! Any more updates that I find out about I will be letting you ladies know so stay tuned! []

 

#MM 3D Highlighter Palette!

I first learned about Huda Beauty through my obsession with matte liquid lipsticks. They have a great collection of liquid lipsticks (each for $20)! They are also famous for their Textured Shadows palette Rose Gold Edition which you may have seen all over Instagram! Now she has added highlighters to her line but not just any highlighter, 3D  highlighter, that actually comes with steps!

Before I get into the steps I wanted to explain how there are two editions: The Gold Sands Edition and the Pink Sands Edition.

Fun Fact: Each shade name was inspired by beaches from all over the world!

The Pink Sands Edition is for fair to medium complexions with the names: Capri, Santorini, Azores, and Ibiza. The Golden Sands Edition is for medium to dark complexions with the names: Fiji, Seychelles, Tahiti, and Zanzibar. Below are the swatches on different shades of skin:

swatches

Application Steps:

1. First, you will need to Prep by applying from the top left corner of palette “Melted Strobe” to your cheekbones. This “melted strobe” creates a smooth base and is made with creamy shea butter and pearlescent finish.

2. Second, apply the lightest on your cheeks as your bonus glow.

3. Next, you can sculpt by taking the darkest shade and swiping it blow your cheekbone as if contouring.

4. Lastly, you can finish your look by sweeping the blush colored shade on line where your light and dark shades meet and blend it all together.

Isn’t this genius?  Not only does this palette seem to blind with its highlights but it also contours! This palette is priced at $45 and I honestly think it is worth it for what it does! You can find buy it here from their website directly.

#MM BECCA X Chrissy

palettecloseupbecca

If you are into highlighters as am I then you would know that one of the top highlighter brands is BECCA! This brand is famous for most of their products containing shimmer but not that glitter type of shimmer but more like that shine from within type look that everyone loves or what people call that “BECCA Glow.” I have their famous Backlight Priming Filter and I absolutely love the glow effect that it leaves. You can even wear it by itself.

Now BECCA is working with the amazing mom and multitasker, Chrissy Teigen! They are making this Limited Edition Glow Face Palette, yes Limited Edition, that honestly looks like my next summer palette! Their site breaks down what is included in the palette beautifully here:

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in “Rose Gold” (which is actually Chrissy’s favorite) | New Luminous Blush in “Hibiscus Bloom” (golden pink coral) | New Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in “Beach Nectar” (juicy apricot shade infused with gold) | and their New Sunlit Bronzer in “Malibu Soleil” (medium amber for that “sun-kissed look”

So Laura Lee’s special-edition lipstick “MAC x LarLarLee” is quoted to be a “universally flattering neutral-pink shade and matte finish.”

Gabriel Zamora’s special-edition lipstick “MAC x Gabriel Zamora” is a beautiful warm brown nude in a satin finish and is said to “bound to stun on women and men alike.”

#MM More MAC Lip Kits!

MAC must have gotten a great response from their first release of their Lip Duos because they are doing it again! I wrote about MAC’s first “Deep Shades” just a couple of weeks ago.

IMG_2962

You will not find this on the MAC website just yet, I myself found out through social media but of course I want to share with you ladies to you up to date. This time MAC will be releasing their nude shades for the “5 Shades for 5 days.” These are their “Deep Nude” series. I am listing them all, lipstick with lip liner, as included in the lip kits or as MAC would call them, Lip Duos. “Antique Velvet” lipstick with “Chestnut” lip pencil, “Persistence” lipstick with “Spice” lip pencil, “Paramount” lipstick with “Mahogany” lip pencil, “Yash Velvet” lipstick with “Stripdown” lip pencil, and “Photo” lipstick with “Cork” lip pencil. I believe that each Lip Duo is the same price before, $29.00 ($34.50 value).
