Maybelline Fall 2017 NYFW Product Previews

One of the things I love about New York Fashion Week, besides all the great fashion, is the behind the scenes new makeup product previews!  And as always, Maybelline teased us with a few new products expected this Fall 2017.  First off we have a couple of new eye shadow palettes

Maybelline has reformulated and repackaged their Expert Wear Single Eyeshadows, promising extraordinary color thanks to blendable, creamy saturated pigments.  They are available in 20 shades, and are very budget friendly, with a $2.98 price tag at Walmart.  The formulation of the single shadows are marketed to provide no fading, with up to 14 hours of wear.

New from Maybelline is the Master Blush Color & Highlight Kit, which contains a collection of 3 matte blushes and a highlighter shade.  Currently it is available in only the one shade option.  Will be interesting to see if they add different shade palettes in the future.  With that being said, Maybelline encourages you to use each shade alone or mix and match to create a custom cheek color.  The blushes are a gel-based formula and Maybelline states that they feature ultra-saturated pigments that deliver high color payoff.  They also state that this weightless, gel-based formula blends in one simple stroke.

Covergirl TruNaked Jewels Eyeshadow Palette First Impressions

jewel4

Walked into my local Shoppers Drug Mart today to pick up a few items and happened upon a new eyeshadow palette from Covergirl.  This is the Jewels Palette, and it is the 4th addition to the TruNaked line.  If you’ve never used any of Covergirl’s TruNaked palettes, you really are missing out, as they are, in my opinion, the best drugstore eyeshadow palettes available.  Covergirl boasts that “these intensely pigmented shadows offer smooth, blendable application and rich payout—just like a leading $50 eyeshadow palette”, and I agree as discussed in my blog post on the other palettes here: https://idreambeauty.com/2015/12/11/new-covergirl-trunaked-eyeshadow-palettes-nudes-roses-golds-review-and-swatches/.

Wet N Wild has a new Limited Edition Collection, Sequins & Stardust.  It appeared out of nowhere really, and a lovely gal whom I follow on Instagram was kind enough to let me share her pics of the collection here with you today.  Her name is Monica, and her Instagram is villemo20:  https://www.instagram.com/villemo20/  and she has a great blog as well: http://villemo20.blogspot.ca/.  So go give her a follow!  She found the products at Harmon Face Values in NYC.  This collection looks absolutely beautiful!!  I cannot wait to get my hands on them.  There are loose pigments, nail polish, lipgloss and lashes.  I am really excited about the pigments, and the polishes look divine!  Monica passed on the lip glosses, but she wants to go back and get them, so keep an eye out on her pages.  So let’s take a look: Continue reading

Rimmel The Only One Lipstick Review and Swatches

DSC_4247

Rimmel has launched a new line of lipsticks called The Only 1.  A pretty bold name for a lipstick, as Rimmel claims it’s “a no compromise, ALL-IN-ONE LIPSTICK”, which promises to be ‘the only lipstick you’ll ever need’, because it provides ‘long lasting colour, comfort, moisture and wear’.  Is this true?  Will I only ever need these lipsticks, and never want to buy another brand??  Let’s take a look… Continue reading
