The Coolest New Products I Found On Sephora.com This Week

new at sephora

Let’s be honest, we all do it. We *should* be answering the emails that are piling up, or cleaning up the mess we made of our closets trying to find something to wear, but instead we’re scrolling through Sephora’s website trying to figure out how we’re going to justify our next #TreatYoSelf order. There’s something about scrolling through all of those new products on Sephora that’s just so satisfying. In an attempt to try to pretend I’ve actually been doing something productive, I’ve decided to start sharing the coolest new products I’ve found here on the blog. I don’t know if I should be saying “you’re welcome” or “I’m sorry” for this post, but either way, let’s get to it.

An (Almost) Full Face of Heat-Proof, Sweat-Proof Makeup

 

I don’t remember giving the sun an invitation to melt my face off, but here we are. That’s summer in Vegas for ya. I used to make the mistake of wearing the same makeup year round, but over the years I’ve learned how to change up my routine to beat the heat. Today, I’m sharing the best sweat-proof makeup products and tips I’ve discovered to survive the summer swelter.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Review: Has Urban Decay Finally Hit All The Right Notes?

Urban Decay has been my favorite makeup brand for over 10 years, but I, like many others, have been critical of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. Past problems have included an overabundance of shimmery shades with few mattes to help create a full look, and palettes featuring too many of the same tones, thus reducing the number of looks that could be created. UD has clearly been listening to our criticism by the looks of the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, but did they finally get it right or is there still something lacking? Today, I’m giving you an in-depth review of the palette, as well as what I would have done differently if I had designed this palette.

Lipsticks Most Likely to be Hiding in my Handbag

We all have those lipsticks that never seem to make it back out of our bags once they go in. The one we search our stash for only to find it hiding in a purse or a pocket later. Rather than sharing my favorite lipsticks (could I even narrow it down?!), I’m sharing the lipsticks I reach for in a hurry, the über wearable ones that I know I can always rely on, and the lipsticks I just can’t seem to stay away from. It’s kind of a parade of neutral pinks and browns, but there are a few wildcards in here that you might not expect. Here’s to the lipsticks that never let me down!

Disappointing Products: Spring 2017

Life is full of disappointment, so I count myself pretty lucky when the biggest disappointment of the moment is a beauty product not working out. That being said, it still sucks, so if I can help you avoid the same fate, well, I’m happy to do it. Of course, the things that don’t work out for me might be the perfect product for you, so take your own preferences and experiences into account when reading this post. I like to keep all of my reviews balanced by mentioning both the pros and cons of the products I’m discussing, but today we’re getting extra sassy. Just a bit of good fun, no harm or offense intended, so please don’t take it personally if you happen to love (or made!) any of the products I’m talking about today. Now, let’s unleash the sass fairy…
