Occasionally (often, almost everyday), I like to stroll (stalk aggressively) through the "Just Arrived" section of Sephora online (aka. Danger Zone). Sometimes I like to do posts about some of the things I'm seeing that I either have or don't have and just chat with you about whether or not I think it's a cool product or if there are some red flags that I would steer clear from. I have quite a list so lets get to it.
Dermablend Blurring Mousse Camo Foundation 1 oz $38. There are 12 shades and I would like to see some more so hopefully they'll expand the line. I love Dermablend. I love their foundations and I do think I'm gonna pick this up. I'm a huge fan of the Smooth Liquid Camo (I think it's called). So this is good for: Normal, Oily, Dry, Sensitive, Combination skin types. So basically everyone. It's said to be "An oil-free, medium coverage foundation with a fresh mousse texture that fills in uneven crevices and pores." It's using the same Camo Pigment that is in the other Dermablend foundations and such. Not only is it great for all these skin types including problem skin like acne or rosacea. It will also cover birthmarks, acne scars and so on. Supposedly wearable for 18 hours and has a nautral matte finish. That's some huge claims. I don't know how well it would cover stuff with it being "medium coverage" but stranger things have happened. Other than that I think it sounds amazing.
Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Split Pans $38. I have one and I have a review on it as well. You can check that out. I love the concept of this. I don't care for Prosecco Pop's color but still I think it's a solid product and worth checking out especially if you've not had the pleasure of trying Becca blushes or shimmering skin perfectors.
Foreo Luna Play Save the Sea $39. This is a small set of a Luna Play which is supposed to last "100 uses" and it's not rechargeable. It also comes with a Foreo Day and Night cleansers. I think the set is neat for what you get. However, I have had the Luna Play and it didn't even last me 20 uses. So it's all in how you look at it. If you want something to "try" and not ready to invest the money in just yet, you can try it to see how you like it. My Luna Play was very effective while it worked. Which is what caused me to buy the bigger one. Now some people will see this as a waste of money.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick $46 .25oz and 26 shades. I don't know how I feel about this honestly. It looks strange because of the triangle shape, which whatever could be no big deal. My main issue is how little product you get. .25 oz for a foundation is not much at all. It's actually one fourth of a standard foundation. So I'd like to see either a lower price or more product. The shade range is incredible I think. They really have a good range of light to deep. Another thing I think is cool is that this claims to "adjust to your body temperature and blend in to your skin". Supposed to be very full coverage and stick foundations usually are.
Kat Von D Serpentina Palette $45 8 shadows and 1 loose pigment. This has 2 matte shades, 1 matte shade with glitter, 1 glitter, 4 shimmers, and 1 loose pigment. This has a lot of beautiful shades in it. Beautiful is an understatement they're gorgeous. I take it this was strongly inspired by Egypt or Ancient Egypt because it refers to Egypt a lot in the description. I played with this in store, it was super soft and lovely formula like the Metal Crush shadows with beautiful colors. I did notice some of the swatches especially Nile seemed like it was just dust that didn't swatch good. and I blame that on it being so soft. It didn't adhere to the skin is what I'm saying. I think it would have a lot of fall out. I think it's an "ok" price, not the best but not the worse. The loose pigment is a really cool aspect. The color range is gorgeous. So I do think it would be nice to have even if they did have a lot of fall out because they're soft, buttery and utterly gorgeous colors.
Touch in Sol Metallist Liquid Foil and Glitter Duo $25 and 5 shades. Touch in Sol is a Korean beauty brand which just released in Sephora I think. I think this is a really cool product, it's liquid metal eyeshadow basically on one side and glitter on the other. It's supposed to be super long lasting. All the shades they have out right now are pretty neutral and mainstream. You have your champagne, bronze, plum, gold, and cranberry. So I hope they expand. I think this is cool, but I notice everyone is coming out with liquid metal foiled type shadows. They don't have a glitter on the other side but I'm assuming you could add your own glitter and be just fine. I know that Maybelline has a new liquid style Color Tattoo called Eye Chrome. However, it's about $10 so if you needed to buy a glitter it wouldn't be much less than buying this duo which is more convenient. So it's all in whatever your take is on that.
So those are the things I picked that were popular right now, interesting to me, and some that I don't really understand lol. Obviously, the things I've not tried is just a general impression of the product overview and not a genuine review on it.
