Here's a round-up of my favorite Snapchat Stories! See others HERE
Follow me on Snapchat at averysweetblog

NEW! Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops (via CoverFx Snapchat & Trendmood Instagram)

Cover FX is a brand I have never tried (will have to change that). But from reviews, they seem to be really good. They've come out with these enhancer drops that add a highlight or bronzing effect. These can be added to your foundation, primer, serum or moisturizer. The swatches look really good, but these are $42 each :S So choose wisely! HaHaHa

NEW! NARS Long Hot Summer Eyeshadow Palette & Bronzer Duo (via Narsissist Snapchat)

I still have to review NARS' Under Cover Collection, but they just introduced a Long Hot Summer Eyeshadow Palette and Bronzer Duo (Laguna/Casino). Both look so beautiful. I really didn't want to get the NARS bug, because their products are pricey, but OH SO GOOD! >.<

Tarte ft. GlamTrashMakeup: Tutorial Using The Swamp Queen Palette (Available Jun 6) 

(via tartecosmetics Snapchat)

Beauty brands are now getting Beauty Influencers & YouTuber's to do short Snapchat Tutorials of their products. I really like this, because it's introducing me to popular beauty enthusiasts and letting me see how products work before purchasing them.  This medium introduced me to GlamTrashMakeup! She's a certified MUA, mother of 3, and wife. She's so personable! She did a step-by-step tutorial of the upcoming Swamp Queen Palette and created a really beautiful look with the palette.

NEW! Ashley Tisdale Illuminate Collection Party ft. Trendmood (via trendmood snapchat)

Beauty enthusiast Trendmood went to an Ashley Tisdale party! This party was to showcase Ashley's new Illuminate Makeup Collection. It includes an eyeshadow palette, blushes, highlighters and lip glosses. It looks like a beautiful collection. This party was so cute, because everyone invited got to pick out pajamas and there were shimmery sweet treats. 

NEW! Smashbox The Gloss Revolution (via smashboxsnaps snapchat)

I'm not sure when these are coming out or the names, but Smashbox introduced their Metallic Glosses by swatching them. Very pretty. I'm loving that light orange one :)

NEW Products From Maybelline ft YouTuber Michelle of ReadySetGlamour 

(via Maybelline & ReadySetSnaps on Snapchat)

Maybelline introduced 12 new products! The collection includes a strobing stick (will be available in a number of shades), a DUAL-SIDED contour & highlight stick (that should be interesting), color jolt, brow pencil/spoogie, better skin powder, tattoo eye chrome, spider mascara, bold lipsticks and lip palette. Popular YouTuber ReadySetGlamour went to the Maybelline party featuring these new products. She is so sweet and I love her reviews.

NEW! Laura Geller Get Gilded Palette & Spackle Mist (via lauragellerbeauty snapchat)

So I just did a review on Laura Geller's Illuminators (Gilded Honey & Peachy Glow). She's coming out with a Get Gilded Palette, which features eyeshadows, a blush, lip gloss and brush. I've tried Laura Geller's makeup in the past and some can be very hit or miss. So I don't know about this. She's also introducing a Spackle Mist Spray! I tried her Spackle primer A LONG TIME AGO and wasn't impressed. So not sure of the spray! But maybe things have changed.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Palette Swatches (via abhcosmetics snapchat)

Anastasia has FOUR CREAM CONTOUR PALETTES! Fair, Light, Medium and Deep! She swatched the first two! I hope she swatches the other two. I have 6 contour palettes, but not any of hers. LOL So I thought these swatches would help someone who was interested in them. If she posts the other ones, I'll definitely post them :)


























Anastasia Beverly Hills That Glow VS. Sun Dipped Glow Kit Swatches 

(via abhcosmetics snapchat)

Last Sunday, I showed you guys ABH NEW Sun Dipped Palette. Well, here's a comparison of Sun Dipped and That Glow. Because at first, I couldn't tell the difference. LOL There is another one called Gleam! But it's different from both of these.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Single Shadow Swatches (via abhcosmetics snapchat)

I purchased a Betty Boop Z Palette last month, and I'm filling it with ABH Shadows. Right now I only have 4 LOL! They're $12 EACH, but $10 on sale. So this will take me awhile. Anyway, she's starting to swatch all 100+ that are offered. Hopefully she will keep this up and as she posts, I'll post them for you here. They're really of excellent quality.

What else is hot in Beauty news, etc? 

(via toofacedsnaps - snapchat, treendmood1 - instagram, beccacosmetics - instagram, ipsyofficial - snapchat, paulandjoe_beaute instagram, beautyconsnaps - snapchat)

Some other things you should be aware of. Looks like there will be a collaboration between Too Faced & Beautyblender. I've never seen the owner of beautyblender, so there she is in the picture below. Loreal's popular Infallible foundation, now has a sister! It's called Infallible GLOW! It sold out once! It sold out twice! Online at Walmart! There was some controversy, because as you can see from the swatches, there are only 4 shades for WOC. LOL L'Oreal stated they were going to change that. So that's good. Becca has a new Ombre Rouge Eyeshadow Palette. WHY NEUTRALS! I love them and this looks great on all 3 skintones. Ipsy gave a sneak peek of their new bag. Paul & Joe will be offering a new Limited Edition Sun Protection Body Mist. THE PACKAGING IS SO CUTE! Beautyconsnaps introduced me to Pure Batch in one of their snaps. They are organic, gluten free, vegan, soy free and peanut free! But in LA!

Popsugar Homemade Brightening Mask (via popsugar snapchat)

Next year, I'm going to make it a point to try making masks. This looked like a good one. I'm not sure about the Matcha. I don't do very well with brightening :S but I thought you guys might be interested in this. 

Popsugar Feel Good Songs You Need To Blast This Summer (via popsugar snapchat)

I must be getting old, because I only recognize 3 of these artists. LOL But Popsugar recommends you add these artists to your Summer music playlist.

Target Pool Floats (via target snapchat)

Pool Floats lately are so cute! These are at Target. Ummm, can you make the Pizza one just a little WIDER. Cause this baby has back! LOL

Dior Cruise 2017 

(via elleusa, alluremag, thecoveteur, wmagazine, itsmichellelee, harpersbazaarus and glamourmag snapchat,

The HUGE Snapchat Story on nearly every PR's profile was Dior Cruise 2017. Everything was exquisite from the invitation, Pub Party, Tea Party, lunch on the Dior Express Train, Venue etc.

Lime Crime Meeting at Bottega Louie (via limecrimemakeup snapchat)

In LA? Then go to Bottega Louie! Lime Crime had lunch there with some beauty influencers. The sweets looked REALLY good. They also have lunch, dinner, breakfast, a brunch, desserts, cocktails, takeout, catering and pastries. Sounds like my kind of place :D

Popsugar Rainbow Pancakes (via popsugar snapchat)

I like fruit on my pancakes! Especially strawberries! But this takes the panCAKE! Layer upon layer of fruit! Take your pancakes to new HEIGHTS! LOL

Jessica Radloff & Beautyconsnaps ft. Zootopia & California Doughnuts 

(via jessicaradloff & beautyconsnaps snapchat)

Jessica Radloff has the best job! She goes to all of these previews. This weekend California Doughnuts sent her a box of Zootopia (The Movie) themed doughnuts. The little panda ones and strawberry chocolate ones are so cute. Can they send me a shellacked version of THE BIG DONUT! I love it!

  1. wow there are soooo many new launches happening. Personally, I'd love the ABH contour kit and her new eyeshadow palette in those gorgeous warm tone shades, and the swamp queen palette looks so beautiful. As usual, my wish list is ridiculously long haha.

  2. I'm using Master Contour by Maybelline and it's great for beginners! Need to get hold of that strobing stick! Baci, Valeria - Coco et La vie en rose NEW POST

  3. Oh I want that pizza pool float haaha! We had the swan and pineapple ones in stores over summer, I was tempted...I know if I'd seen the pizza I would have got it right away!

  4. I love your snapchat fav series, I get to follow a lot more accounts for more awesome snaps.

  5. How cool Laura Geller new mist first time I heard of it.

  6. Great Post... loved it... xoxo, Neha

  7. So many great products to try! Now I want pancakes. :) I have never tried making a mask before. I love the idea of all natural!

  8. I haven't tried cover fx before either, those swatches look beautiful though, and enhancer drops sound so nice! You can control how Mitch goes in! Nars is definitely one of my favorites for cheep products! I'd love to have the bronzer duo! The new glow kit looks soooo pretty! You're right that they are super similar! I'm glad to know you like the ABH shadows you're putting in your z palette, I haven't tried any yet! I heard about the new Loreal foundation! I love the matte version of it so I'm sure the glow one is awesome too! And ugh those becca shadows, they are so pretty and I'm a sucker for neutrals too! I want that pineapple pool float lol!!

  9. I've never tried anything from the Cover FX brand either but those Custom Enhancer Drops sound really cool. I do a homemade mask with matcha a manuka honey. It's a actually a very good antioxidant and doesn't irritate at all.I would say that it helps to give the skin a glow more than brightens though.

  10. Oh gawd, I always forget brands have their own snapchats, I definitely need to start adding more of them to my own, although that could be dangerous for my purse eek! How amazing do those doughnuts look!?

    Musings & More

  11. The Popsugar Homemade Brightening Mask snaps are super helpful. I want to make one at home too. Love the doughnut snaps by Jessicaradloff and beautyconsnaps. Those panda dougnuts are too cute for words ;-) xoxo

  12. The Dior Cruise snap story was probably one of my favourites that I've ever watched - everything was just so fun! And I love seeing that sneakpeek of the new Nars palette, I'm definitely going to have to follow them. Another great round-up, Kim :)

  13. Ah Kim, you tempt me so so much! Id like to try the new stuff from Nars, it seems really great though is pricey as brand. Also, have seen the new ins frmo Maybelline, Id like to get the strobing stick soon! Kisses! xo

  14. I am not on snapchat and I tell myself I don't need another app, however seeing those photos don't make it easier.

  15. Wow Kim, what a fun post and so much to look at! I will have to visit when I have more time. Love all of your fun post and makeup ideas and reviews. Hope you have a lovely week.

  16. Oh wow!! So much visual detail as far as the makeup!! And I love that you post your fave Snap moments on your blog! Neat idea!!

    All the Cute 🎀
    Today's Post: Abstract Print Dress

  17. Thanks for updating us on all of this beauty news! I don't own any Nars eyeshadow palettes but that NARS Long Hot Summer Palette! I also like the looks of the new Becca one! I got the Becca Champagne Glow eyeshadow palette and like it so far! That BH Cosmetics x Ashley TInsdale collection also interests me. I haven't tried any of the single Anastasia shadows but I have one of their palettes which I love! SO MUCH BEAUTY NEWS!!! :)

  18. Oooo, I am interested in the new Maybelline Strobbing Stick but not so sure how I feel about the contour/highlight duo. I think it's not practical to have both side by side. And I'm testing the Colossal Spider mascara and it's okay. Doesn't give spidery lashes and I have to layer quite a bit to get some volume.

  19. Wow, makeup heaven! haha love this!

  23. I need to be more active on snapchat haha! I really wanna try those Cover FX foundations!!

  24. I think I've mentioned before, but I don't follow any makeup companies on Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter are already overwhelming. But I bet it's super cool to see sneak peaks of new things coming out. I am kind of excited for the Ashley Tisdale line with BH!

  25. Those metallic glosses are SOOO cool!
