News:

Morphe Brushes has launched their new subscription service! For 19.99 a month or 239.99 annually, you will receive 30.00 a month or more value. The annual subscription also comes with a free 350 palette. You will also get access to new products first and exclusive discounts. You can go to Morphebox.com to subscribe!

The very hyped Kylie Jenner Lip Kit debuted on Cyber Monday in 3 sets of liner and matching liquid lipsticks, 29 each. The colors Candy, Dolce, and True Brown are rumored to be coming back in a few weeks, and new products debuting in February.

Mac is debuting their new cushion foundation Matchmaster Shade Intelligence Compact as well as a new complementing brush online December 17th and in stores on December 26th. Great way to try the Korean Bb Cushion craze by a brand you love!

My pick of the week is the My Pretty Zombie contour duo in Pancakes (a white highlighter with green, blue, and purple sparks) and Do Not Sit Next to Dennis ( a cool toned light gray with purple undertones). They both blend beautifully, and the contour is amazing for creating that shadow in the hollows of your cheeks. The duo is a steal at 15.00 for both. You can get the duo as well as her others amazing blushes and shadows on pretty-zombie.com.

News:

Makeup Forever is debuting a new foundation which I have a feeling will be a big hit! It is the Water Blend Face and Body Foundation and is a gel water formulation. There will be 20 shades at launch and will be 43.00. It should be out in the next couple months so keep a look out! The Face and Body foundation is already a cult classic so we’ll see how well this formula works!

MAC is coming out with yet another new collection very soon! The MAC Blue Nectar collection will include lipsticks and Plushglass. There will be some popular limited edition lipsticks coming back like Riot House from the Osbourne collection and Barbeque. It should be up on June 2nd online and June 9th in stores.

In indie news, the new Jeffree Star highlighters and palette that has a huge buzz on social media right now is upon us! There will be four highlighters Mint Condition a light mint, King Tut which is a true gold, Ice Cold which is bright white, and Peach Goddess a peachy pink. They will be 29.00 each in large pans in a pink compact. You can also buy them as a bundle for 100.00. There will also be a brand new eyeshadow palette the Killer Beauty palette, with a mix of neutrals and brights, shimmer and matte for 45.00. They are all vegan and cruelty free. No time yet but they will be released Wednesday May 25th, make sure to follow @jeffreestarcosmetics on Instagram for swatches!

My pick of the week is more of a review of the week because it has been so highly requested,  the new Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face palette! This palette is a mix of two highlighters and three highlighters. The highlighters consist of the ever so popular Champagne Pop, and a limited edition color Prosecco which is a more yellow gold version of Champagne Pop. The three blushes Rose Spritz, Amaretto, and Pamplemousse are also quite beautiful. Rose Spritz is the most shimmery of the three and gave a beautiful glow. Amaretto and Pamplemousse were satiny and blended out nice as well. The packaging is stunning, with white and gold and a large mirror. It is 52.00 and I think it is a very fair price for what you get. It feels luxurious and the colors are gorgeous on the skin. It will be available on Sephora.com May 26th 9am pst and in stores June 16th.

The new Tarte Cosmetics collection is starting to pop up in stores! The

Tartelette 2 palette In Bloom is on Ulta.com as well as Tartecosmetics.com for 45.00. The brush and Tarteist contour palette is available on Tarte as well as Sephora.com.

A lot of you have been asking when the new Too Faced Bon Bon palette and Melted Chocolate lipsticks will be available and we have a more concrete date, December 8th!

My picks of the week are budget friendly, Elf cosmetics new brushes, the Sculpting Face Brush, e.l.f blending brush, and e.l.f Selfie Ready Foundation Brush. They are a very affordable 6.00 each but rival brushes from other brands at much higher price points. Incredibly soft, perfect for blending and contouring, they are an incredible value.

Rank #12: TWiM 69: Wedding Bells with Lizbeth

Podcast cover

We talk about food and makeup, the importance of trying indie makeup companies, and what it takes to be a professional wedding makeup artist. 

News:

Tarte Cosmetics have debuted quite a few new products that you might be interested in. A limited edition Kiss and Blush cream cheek and lip palette for 42.00, a new concealer, Amazonian clay highlighter Exposed for 28.00, three new Amazonian clay nude blushes, as well as their new collaboration collection with Grayeyardgirl and more. You can check all of them out on tartecosmetics.com. Another product to check out from Tarte is the upcoming collaboration with social media beauty guru MakeupbyShayla with a new contour palette in deeper skintone shades. That should be up on June 19th so watch out for that as well!

For you Indie fans Lunatick Cosmetic Labs has just rereleased their beautiful Relic palette this week! It is a collection of five neutrals in warm tones and in their signature coffin packaging. As you guys know I am in love with their HD powder as well as their contour palette so I'm excited to try this. The palette is 35.00 and you can check it out on Lunaticklabs.com!

My pick of the week is Notoriously Morbid and their Mystic Matte liquid lipsticks. I've had Notoriously Morbid as my pick of the week before with their amazing Duochrome lipstick changelings that makes any lipstick into a metallic Duochrome. I recently picked up some of their new liquid lipstick colors, one of them being Ethereal which is a gorgeous rose gold metallic matte that lasted through two meals. Another cool thing is that they brought back their duos. For 8.00 you get to choose two mini liquid lipsticks of your choice in mini sizes. It's a really nice way to try them or if you are like me and have to many as it is and need smaller sizes. You can check them out on notoriouslymorbid.com.

News:

We finally have a date for the new Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly palette! It will be Ulta and Toofaced.com exclusive on February 28th and will be 36.00. It looks like it is a very warm palette with oranges, bronzes, and a beautiful purple/pink color as well. If you want to see it in action, you can go check out the beauty guru Jkissa’s YouTube channel! She just did an awesome review/tutorial with it!

Yes, it's the second week in the row we are discussing Kylie Jenner on the show! Today it's a positive thing, her new Valentine's Day inspired collection! There will be 3 new lip kits with a brand new formula, one a dusty pink and one a red. Unfortunately there is no date and it will supposedly drop unexpectedly within a week or two. I'm not sure yet if that will make the mania better or worse, we will have to wait and see!

My pick of the week is the Nivea Men's Sensitive Aftershave Balm! I know what you're thinking, not her too?! Yes! I jumped onto the craze and it really is that great. I made sure to really rub it in for a couple minutes until it was tacky, and then applied my foundation. It worked just as well as any high end primer I've tried. I personally like it because it helps with my foundation not sticking to my dry spots as it does without a moisturizing base. For those with very sensitive skin the one thing you might need to be wary of is the fragrance in it, as some people are sensitive to those in product. You can get it in the men's shaving section at places like Walmart or Target for around 6.00 for about 3.5 ounces!

News:

A new eyeshadow stack by Melt Cosmetics has been announced and is coming next week! It is called the Radioactive Stack and is a collection of four neon pressed pigments in Radioactive a Neon pink, Neon or yellow with micro gold, Radon orange with a hint of pink, and Xenon lime green. They will be available on Monday January 25th 12:00 pst on MeltCosmetics.com!

Dose of Colors have released their new eye deal duos that include a primer and matching loose pigment for 25.00 each. The colors range anywhere from neutral shades like Sticks and Stones to a gorgeous dark teal shade Mermaid, There are also 4 new liquid lipstick shades, my favorite being Cork a warm brown, for 18.00 each. You can get all these on Doseofcolors.com.

My picks of the week are the new Nyx Lingerie liquid lipsticks. At first I wasn't too excited by the line but after trying them I think they are excellent quality for the price of 7.00 each. They are extremely comfortable to wear but still lasted through a meal which is great. My personal favorite is Embellishment, a cool gray mauve. You can buy them on Nyxcosmetics.com and use Welcome25 to get 25% off your order!
