5 stars out of 5

Becca x Khloe Kardashian & Malika Haqq Bronze, Blush & Glow Palette ($44) is a new blush, highlighter, and bronzer palette that was created in collaboration between Becca and best friends, Khloe and Malika. I tend to like these glow blush palettes that Becca does and I’ve collected quite a few over the year’s like Becca’s Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Face Palette, Becca Apres Ski Glow Face Palette, and the Becca Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette. I hope Becca continues to make these as I’ll continue to buy them.

Aside from NARS Orgasm and MAC Sweet Vision Magic Dust Powder, I’m really disappointed with luminious and sparkly blushes lately. They just don’t give me the gorgeous glow I’m looking for without being too frosty or too sparkly. That’s where Becca comes in with these palettes. Although, they almost always include a bronzer shade which isn’t to my liking I still love the selection of blushes and highlighters they include in these palettes as they tend to apply the most perfect glow.

You know me, I’m not a fond fan of highlighters but Becca’s formula are my downfall. I’m applying them utterly wrong though as I tend to mix them with a matte blush and apply to the apples of my cheeks. Oh well! It works for me 🙂

Sephora Rouge Rewards with Flash Shipping Updates on the Site

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

Just a heads up the Sephora Rouge Rewards are active on Sephora.com. As per our discussion a few weeks ago Flash Shipping is no longer a benefit of your Rouge Membership. Where as before it was something you automatically received when you were a Sephora Rouge Member it is now available as a Sephora Rouge Reward.

There are several Rouge rewards available for you to choose from today:

  • 500 Points
  • 750 Points
  • Two Makeovers For Yourself or To Gift
  • Four Makeovers To Share
  • Free Shipping with $35 Purchase
  • Free Flash 2-Day Shipping

I’ll be the first to admit some of these are utterly lame. For example, why would they offer $35 shipping as well as 2-Day Flash? I mean, is anyone going to say, “Oh I don’t take the free 2-day shipping! Instead I’ll go with the free shipping on orders of $35 or more…” WTF though? How does that make sense? Also, I’m not really all that interested in points since there is anything of great value to redeem them for aside from Reward Gift Cards which come with a host of stipulations. And makeovers don’t interest me at all!

Needless to say, I will be chosing to extend my Flash 2-Day Shipping option. What does confuse me is I thought that I’d have Flash Shipping until my Rouge Membership renews at which point I would have the option to choose a new Rouge Reward one of those being the free Flash 2-Day Shipping. Since these new options are on Sephora’s site for all Rouge Member does that mean that all Rouge 2-Day Shipping is no longer available? I decided to test this out by popping a few items into my cart and doing a mock checkout. Flash Shipping is still in fact an option when I check out. Will it go away tomorrow? Next week? I’m assuming at this point I don’t have to yet click that Flash Shipping Reward until I’m getting ready to renew my Rouge Membership at this point but who knows when that Flash Shipping option will disappear.

I’m confused….!

Anyway, I suggest waiting just a bit before you decide to select Flash 2-Day Shipping as a reward!

Good Luck!

Puma x Maybelline for Spring 2019 Arriving at Ulta this February

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

Puma x Maybelline will be arriving for Spring 2019 at Ulta.com starting February 8th and mass retailers on March 17th. This is the first time Maybelline has collaborated with a sports brand to create a makeup collection and their inspiration was to create streetwear inspired looks that are long lasting. Looks that you can apply that will take you from the street to the gym.

Yeah, ok. So, I don’t wear makeup when I’m sweating on a treadmill but no judgement if you do! That being said, I look at the collection from a standpoint of do I like these colors? Will I like their formula? Will I wear them? And not so much as something that will take me from the city streets to the gym. That being said, Athleisure is definitely a trend we’ve seen in the makeup world before and one that drugstore makeup collections will obviously be taking on for Spring 2019 if this Puma x Maybelline Collection is anything to go by!

PUMA’s latest ambassador Adriana Lima will serve as the model for the new collection.

Let’s check out some more details on this new makeup collection below!
