Natasha Denona Love Eyeshadow Palette Is It Love, Lust, Or Bore?

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Natasha Denona Love Palette Eyeshadow Palette is up and available for pre-order and launches January 28th for Spring 2020 but allow me to ask is it love, lust, or a bore? Filled with 15 all new eyeshadow shades in pinks, mauves, and burbundy’s this palette definitely has a Valentine’s Day Vibe.

There were sneaky peeks of it on Insta but no one actually posted the inside of the palette. I had a funny feel they’d be going cranberry with it but I sure did hope for more dusky pinks. I feel like the market is sort of saturated with a lot of burgundy and cranberry lately. Something with dusky roses and lighter pinks would have been rather fitting for Spring don’t you think?

I’m never one to say no to beautiful rich wine shades but I feel like I have a lot of them as Fall and Winter was filled with a good deal of reddish, wine palettes! I’m currently in love with Physicians Formula Rose All Play Eyeshadow Bouquet so, maybe that’s why I’m like “Eh, do I really need the Love Palette Eyeshadow Palette?”

The tempting thing would be the price as it is one of Natasha’s smaller palettes so it’s marked at $65. I mean, yeah, sure $65 isn’t cheap but it is cheaper than some of the larger palettes which are $100+.

Natasha Denona Love Palette Eyeshadow Palette is available for pre-order on the brand’s site and will launch officially January 28th at Sephora.

Will you be indulging?

NARS Cool Crush Eyeshadow Palette Rushes in for Spring 2020 At Nordstrom

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

NARS Cool Crush Eyeshadow Palette, Cool Crush Hot Fix Cheek Palette, and Cool Crush Loaded Lip Lacquer are now available for Spring 2020 exclusively at Nordstrom. Interesting how NARS seems to have all sorts of exclusive launches lately across the board. Some end up at Ulta, others at Sephora, and others still at Nordstrom and let’s not forget some are only available from NARS website. I do so hate the Easter Egg Hunt with makeup exclusives though!

But hey, if you love NARS you might not mind so much!

Bare Minerals The Beauty of Nature for Spring 2020 Featuring the Natural Oasis Eyeshadow Palette

Bare Minerals Beauty of Nature for Spring 2020 launched today and it includes The Beauty of Nature Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Natural Oasis that caught my eye. I have to say the collection is much more appealing to me than last year’s Floral Topia which was beautiful but I like the warmer shades found in the Beauty of Nature Collection.

Which this launch they include a new Mineralist Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick ($20) which is a “clean” vegan friendly lipstick created with 19 ingreidents which they boost is 40% less than average top-selling lipstick formulas. It’s also created with 76% naturally derived extracts and botanicals. The formula is infused with European Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil; Mediterranean Olive Oil for a soft, hydrating, creamy lipstick formula. Apparently this formula is great for drier lips and it’s available in nine shades.

Jump ahead for more on this collection!

Charlotte Tilbury Releases Intense Pillow Talk Goodies to Swoon Over

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Pillow Talk Intense, Pillow Talk Eyeliner, Pillow Talk Intense K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick and other goodies have arrived today at charlottetilbury.com.

The release is centered around Charlotte Tilbury’s new Intstant Eye Palette in Pillow Talk that includes 12 shades inspired by her popular dusky nude pink lipstick shade, Pillow Talk! Speaking of Pillow Talk Lipstick they now have it in an array of different intensities including a medium shade. It seems like they are wanting to shade to flatter more skin tones! The Intense version should look amazing on a deeper skin tone! In fact the whole collection seems like that is where they going. It looks like the original Pillow Talk to are marketing towards a lighter tone and two new offerings of medium and intense are best for medium skin tones and darker ones. I like that they are trying to be more inclusive with this launch!

I’m pretty hyped about this release as I never thought of myself as a big Pillow Talk lover until I purchased more items from the collection! The more I tried, the more I liked it. Below I’m wearing the Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Quad and Pillow Talk original Cheek to Chic shade! I’m looking forward to checking out the intense version of the blush! As well as the original lipstick!

One of the more interesting products I’m wanting to purchase would be the new eyeliner which looks like a gorgeous pink burgundy that would be flattering combined with the new Instant Palette or quad.

They really expanded the collection with so many new offerings for Spring 2020.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Spring 2020 Collection is available now.

L’Oreal Infallible Matte Lip Crayon Review & Swatches

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.
2 stars out of 5

L’Oreal Infallible Matte Lip Crayon ($11.99) is a new matte lip crayon available in 18 permanent shades that launched with the L’Oreal Spring 2020 Collection. I am so deeply impressed that L’Oreal not only released these new Matte Lip Crayons as a permanent part of their collection but also, in a whopping 18 shades. I mean, to have the very nerve to launch such a dry, draggy formula not only as permanent product but also in 18 shades that people may just be hesitant to buy after hearing about the formula sure is an accomplishment ha..!

But I digress because maybe just maybe this could be a Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink kind of thing where everyone LOVES and adores the formula and I’m the oddball that doesn’t. Someone insert one of those shrugging shoulder emojis right here.

I didn’t love Infallible Matte Lip Crayon but it has an interesting formula with some pros and one major con. Keep in mind this formula shouldn’t be compared or likened to the L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick that launched a few years ago. This is most definitely very different.

Now I’ll share some of my thoughts and why I think Infallible Matte Lip Crayons have some interesting good points but if you’re wanting a lip crayon I’d likely recommend going with the much better formulated Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon that launched last Summer.
