Hi guys! Hope you’re good and staying healthy. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:
Here comes another post about new makeup launches and what I would love to buy. That doesn’t guarantee I will do it, I just like to share my thoughts and opinions with you. Today’s list has what is considered high-end (aka expensive) makeup brands. I actually own nothing from any of these brands (except Huda Beauty), so all I would say is going to be about packaging and colors.
DISCLAIMER: All pictures and information presented here was found on trendmood’s Instagram account.
First we have NARS limited edition Laguna Collection. From this summer collection, I’m into the Oil-Infused Lip Tint and the Powerchrome Loose Eye Pigments. The lip oil retail for $26 and comes in two shades: Laguna and Reef. As for the loose pigments, which retail for $28, Islamorada is calling my name.
Next, Huda Beauty with some Diamond Hydrating Balms that have a cool look and sheer pigmentation. They’re $25 each and comes in 4 shades. I like Negligee (sheer nude) and Dirty Thoughts (sheer lilac). Apparently, they launch in May. What’s already available is a highlighter by Fenty Beauty from their new collection Cognac Candy. The highlighter is refer to as Diamond Bomb in a copper shade for a retail price of $39. It looks quite pigmented and an amazing sheen (almost glittery), but for that kind of money I think I’ll pass for now.
I’m not a fan of any shade of pink but Sigma’s new collection called Cor-De-Rosa looks beautiful. The eyeshadow palette with 14 shades seems to have great pigmentation and retails for $49. In the lip department, I liked the Cor-De-Rosa Liquid Lipstick and the glosses in shades Cor-De-Rosa and Secret Garden. Each lip product (liquid lipstick and gloss) retail for $20. My decision is split here because I love the shades of the lip products, but I find them so damn expensive.
The Supreme Nudes Collection from Artist Couture looks incredibly luxurious. Love the 12 shades in the eyeshadow palette, they’re right up my alley. The retail price is $40, which I’m not thrilled about. There’s also 6 shades of Silk Cream Lipsticks and they retail for $18 each. Not sure which shade I like more, they all look gorgeous.
The Shade and Illuminate Face and Eye Palettes by Tom Ford are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. Packaging looks luxurious and the shades are amazing. I’m so in love with two of them, Intensity 2 Moonlit Violet and Intensity 3 Moss Agate.
Pür Cosmetics will be launching a Trolls Collection related to the new Trolls movie World Tour. Everything about the eyeshadow palettes is precious and the pigmentation seems to be good. I like them all, but to be fair there are some colors that I already own. For example, the Funk palette reminds me of Colourpop’s It’s My Pleasure palette. So if I’m being realistic, I’ll probably buy Techno, Classical and Rock.
