Jewelry designer Kendra Scott (Austin, Texas) gave WhoWhatWear a lovely tour of her headquarters. The tour showcased her beautiful jewelry designs, office & work spaces, and perks (employees have an area to get pedicures, workout, eat special delights). Can I work there? LOL She also treated everyone to dinner & a fancy bbq. What really caught my eye, were the nail lacquers she's about to come out with in August. Look at the bottle design! Aren't they gorgeous? So my question is will she come out with more beauty products? Hmmmm
Chateau Labiotte & Other Asian Treats
(via glowrecipe snapchat & it's korea instagram)
It's a miniature wine bottle! It's a miniature wine bottle that is LIPSTICK! I thought this was so cute! I so want to add a couple of these to my collection. I've never heard of this brand, but the concept is fantastic. There's even a lip balm! Another product they showcased was an Espresso Stout Body Wash and a treatment for tired legs! All the packaging is so cute.
Sleek Barekissed Illuminator
(via sleekmakeup snapchat)
Sleek just came out with these liquid Barekissed Illuminators! They're offered in 4 colors and at only $13.49 they definitely beat the prices of those $40+ CoverFx Liquid Drops! HaHaHa I can't vouch for their quality, but they look good here.
Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayon
(via sleekmakeup snapchat)
These are also new by Sleek! I'm not a big fan of lip plumping. Companies say tingling sensation, but often the reviewer describes an uncomfortable "burning". :( It may or may not be the case for these, but I wasn't too impressed with the color pay off from their lip swatches below. But they're new! So I just wanted you to see them.
Becca Champagne Splits & Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlights
(via trendmood snapchat)
Becca Cosmetics, is coming out with some spin-offs from the Champagne Pop Collection. These compacts are basically highlighter & mineral blush DUOS. The colors are Prosecco & Amaretto, Prosecco & Pamplemousse, Champagne Pop & Hyacinth and Champagne Pop & Flowerchild. A brush to apply these will also be for sale. They're also coming out with Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlights. Bottom line, they're highlighting sticks, in which a lot of companies are coming out with at the moment! The compact will be $38 and comes out July 14th at Sephora. Not sure about the price of the brush or Slimlights. I'm just going to stick with my face palette & skip these LOL
NARS Undercover 2016 Summer Collection
(via narsissist snapchat)
NARS came out with a beautifully packaged Summer Collection. The artwork is gorgeous! I purchased some things from this collection. I have to review it on the blog. But these are some of the lip swatches. I have Overheated & Get Dirty. I'll review in the next couple of weeks.
Sigma Sale, Shimmer Creams & Eyeshadow Palettes
(via sigmabeauty snapchat)
When I think of Sigma, I automatically think of makeup brushes & brush cleaning mats. HaHaHa I wasn't aware they had makeup! They swatched some of their Shimmer Creams in Sultry, Brilliant & Superb and I was impressed. So pretty. They also have eye shadow palettes (names) in Brilliant & Spellbinding; Smokescreen; Fall Softly; and Warm Neutrals (SHOWN BELOW). Sigma is currently offering 30% off ALL of their products through July 4th.
Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer
(via ipsyofficial snapchat)
Hourglass seems to be ahead of the makeup game. Many people are now mixing highlighters & illuminators in with their primers. Well Hourglass has three that will give you a glow PLUS correct! They look beautiful!
Laura Geller Baked Balance Brighten Color Correcting Foundation
(via lauragellerbeauty snapchat)
I never knew (these even existed, let alone) about the other shades, but here are 4 new ones! LOL They're suppose to be used in replacement of a foundation. I wonder what kind of coverage these give?
Colourpop Tie Dye Highlighters
(via colourpopcosmetics snapchat)
This week Colourpop mixed various colors of pigment together and created 3 Tie Dye Highlighters. They asked for people to vote and whichever "mix" won they would put it on their website & sell it. It (middle one CHURRO) sold out in minutes! I bet they're going to do a collection of tie dye highlighters and sell them. No word as of yet! I think it's a pretty cool concept, because as of right now highlighters are just one dimensional. This gives you a mix of pigments!
ELF 2016 Holiday Collection
(via beautylogicblog snapchat)
Elf is bringing you "beauty blenders", highlighters & an eye shadow palette for the holidays.
L'Oreal Lip Palette
(via beautyconsnaps snapchat)
Finally found some swatches of L'Oreal's NEW Lip Palette! The colors are beautiful.
Benefit Ka Brow
(via benefitbeauty snapchat)
Benefit came out with SO MANY eye & eyebrow products (28+) that my brain just shut down & disregarded them all when they first came out. I'm not much of an eyebrow person in the first place. I have Anastasia's brow wiz and have yet to use it. Maybe I'll change my mind. Well, Benefit explained one of them (Ka Brow) this week on their Snapchat and hopefully they'll do the same with the rest of them. The swatches did help. Beforehand, I felt like they were saying HERE ARE ALL OF THESE PRODUCTS! YOU NEED THEM RIGHT NOW! BUY! LOL Well, explain them Benefit! Explain them! Looking at the YouTubers receiving the packages, they look just as overwhelmed! They love the cabinet that holds all the products but are overwhelmed by how many are in it and how many they have to explain to their subscribers. Some never explain! Can you blame them?
(via ofracosmetics snapchat)
Just familiarizing myself with OFRA Cosmetics. These aren't new, but they have a lot of products.
Pinky Rose Cosmetics
(via pinkyrose snapchat)I knew they had lip glosses. I didn't know they had eyelashes >.< One day, I'll get the nerve.
(via meltcosmetics snapchat)Melt came out with a Nood lip collection awhile back. Well now they're introducing them in eye shadow form and also a rust stack collection (which seems to be sold out currently but back July 5th)
Kat Von D Studded Lipstick Swatches
(via katvondbeauty snapchat)Here are some swatches of Kat Von D's Studded Lipsticks
Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder
(via Jeffree Star snapchat )Jeffree Star swatched Bobbi Brown's Highlighting Powder in Sunset & Bronze Glow. Very pretty!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Eye Liners
(via abhcosmetics snapchat)
I didn't know ABH had METALLIC eyeliners. They're so pretty swatched below. She also has creme (pot) liners.
JK Rowlings Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
(via popsugar snapchat)
I haven't kept up with Harry Potter anything, since it ended. Have you? Well JK Rowlings is introducing a North American Wizarding School (this is the second installment). Did anybody see the first installment? LOL The installments are suppose to prepare you for her Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them movie/book. Sounds interesting! If anyone can clarify, please leave it in the comments below :D. Well, there are FOUR HOUSES you can be sorted in. Go to the pottermore site to be officially sorted. I took the quiz and I got Horned Serpent! EEK YIKES! It favours scholars... but it's a serpent...EEK! YIKES! LOL Tell me yours if you take the quiz. My Harry Potter house results are also below...GRYFFINDOR!
My Results: Named by Isolt Sayre after the great horned river serpent that has a jewel set into its forehead; Horned Serpent house is sometimes considered to represent the mind of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Horned Serpent favours scholars.
Welcome to House
You probably know that some of Gryffindor’s most renowned members include Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter. But did you know the sword of Gryffindor was made a thousand years ago by goblins, or that Head of House Minerva McGonagall’s hobbies include correcting articles in Transfiguration Today and supporting the Montrose Magpies?
