#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!)

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!

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! []

 

Newest Swimwear Collection

Not sure if the brand, Reformation, is in your radar but it should be now and I am sure you’re going to see more of it soon with their first swimwear collection release! This LA label has been in the game since 2009 and is known to be eco-friendly. Who wouldn’t like that right? They are also known for their cute and fairly affordable summer pieces but now, for the first time, they have added swimwear and I am loving it. In the same way they have made their summer pieces they are doing the same with their swimwear in that they are made out from actual recycled fabrics. Another thing I adore, the retro feel to their pieces!

Believe me if I could be able to afford it, I would want to have a-whole-nother wardrobe just for vintage clothing!! But for now I have collected some timeless pieces here and there. I even have a black and white polka dot high-waisted bikini with the top resembling how they used to wear it back in the day! I would love to add a couple of Reformation’s pieces to my collection as well!

Prices: The collection as a whole ranges from $78 to $148. You can order your favorite pieces on their site here

#TBT Guess what sandals are coming back?!

Just in time for #ThrowbackThursdays Steve Madden has announced that they are bringing back a pair of sandals that I am sure we all have had at one point. If you were into platforms back then, you must have had these. But honestly even if you’re not into platforms like that, look at how cute and minimalistic these are?!

Steve Madden calls these the “Slinky” sandals. As of right now they only have them in Black with a 2.25 inch heel height + 1.25 inch platform with a comfortable stretchy material on top. These will go great with the already trending tinted glasses and stretchy dresses that bring back the 90s! The price: $69.95. Even though I am finding out about these right now, they will not be releasing them until July! Howeverr you can preorder them here!

#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:

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 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.

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).

#MM New Kat Von D Lip Liners!

Kat Von D dropped the news last week but I thought that it deserved to be set aside for #MakeupMonday ! I also wanted to get every little bit of detail I can get on them for you ladies! Every person that is into liquid lipsticks must know about Kat Von D’s; I actually got into her brand when “Lolita” was all the rage and just had to try it for myself. I must say I did like the quality and application of her liquid lipsticks. They are high pigmented and I didn’t have to worry about the piling when I had to reapply after eating.

& now to find out that she is going to be releasing lip liners to go exactly with one of my fave Everlasting liquid lipsticks?! My expectations: that these lip liners be as pigmented as their lipsticks.

Below are some great pics because they show the names of each and just look at the beautiful colors! She has a large range of nudes and bright colors!

They are said to launch on April 11th! So make sure to check online @ Sephora or on her own website as well here!

#FF VBXTarget is finally here!

Yes this awaited collaboration is finally here and I have pictures and prices of some of my already favorite picks! Her collection includes Womens (Plus sizes too!), Girls, Toddler, and Baby.

I do not even think I have to explain how Victoria Beckham is a fashion icon in her own right! Many must remember her music career as Spice Girls’ Posh Spice but she has long branched off from that field once she became a fashion designer. She actually started back in 2008 and since 2010 has become a NYFW fixture!

TBH I do not like everything she wears all the time but in general, I do like her style. Only thing I regret are the prices of her clothing line so naturally I was thrilled to hear that she was collaborating with Target! I wrote about it last year in October :) read it here.

But finally the day has come where I can see the prices of her pieces and I want to share it with you:

One of my immediate favorites was the gingham set which I personally loove and have to have :)

ginghamoutfit

The top is $30 and the pant is $30, totaling to just $60! (Plus sizes are also available and at same prices!)

peplumjacket35

Being a fan of peplum myself I automatically picked out this jacket and for just $35, I liked it even more!

I am a huge fan of black but once the weather gets warmer and we reach Spring and Summer, I wear lighter clothes :) and Victoria’s collection also offers that. This marigold colored top is beautiful and with the $26 tag price, it should make it to my closet soon lol

marigold26

 

I also love this orange romper here costing just $35, I see myself wearing this romper this Summer!

This striped poplin dress also looks like a great new classic type of dress, priced at just $35

Here are also adorable pieces for girls and toddlers: (she also has for babies) I absolutely love the gingham suit for little girls! The color is also too cute. (The set totals out to just $20!) The collared dress to the right is also cute, chic, and available in women! (They also have this dress in a beautiful blush pink color, each for $25)

 

You can see her other pieces here. Unfortunately we just have to wait a little more, until April 9th to make these pieces your own. I am thinking that this collection is going to sell out fast so best of luck shopping!

Happy Shopping
