SubCulture for Fall

Disclaimer: the photo does not belong to me.
Fall is definitely in the air! Everywhere you go or shop from beauty to home goods , fall items are being rolled out ready to welcome in my favorite season!
I went to Ulta today to see what's new and to see what the fuss or complains were about on the Anastasia Beverly Hills newest palette labeled "Sub Culture". From the look of the palette fall was definitely the inspiration. The palette was released a few weeks ago so I am tardy to the party. I was able to see swatches and reviews and some of the reviews I watched many were complaining of fall out or what not, so I did swatch the palette and decided to give my opinion on the palette before I purchase it for myself and my kit.
I am familiar with Anastasia Beverly Hills but I only own three products from the line ( hopefully one day I will become a beauty ambassador and I won't have to be behind). I have the Modern Renaissance palette and I like it and the dip brow pomade is nice, but the eyebrow brush is the perfect stiffness to get your brows on "fleek!"
When I swatched SubCulture,I immediately noticed the pigmentation!! It's there so that's a plus, what I didn't see nor get is the negative reviews that were made. Disclaimer time: Everyone has their right to their opinion, it does not make them right nor wrong, it's just how they felt about the palette. When you have a palette that is not fully pressed and mostly pure pigment, you can expect fall out point blank. I feel the brand wanted to give a rich deep color pay off with this palette. I feel the intention was a little goes a long way. You will get the color pay off that you are looking for. What do I think about the price point? I feel because it's not fully pressed and the pigmentation is there, the price is worth it. I advise though to be very careful with the palette it looks like one fall and your money will be down the drain!


Wet n Wild Fall Collection: Midnight Mermaid

Browsing on YouTube, I saw a popular Influencer doing a makeup tutorial and review on Wet n Wild's fall collection..wait..what..a fall collection?? I haven't even gotten my hands on the summer collection, since that collection did not make it to any of my local retailers, I had given up. So when I saw this collection on Wet n Wild's Instagram page, which I got the pictures from (sorry I haven't made it to the beauty guru or influencer status yet..not giving up hope yet though). I had to come on and share my thoughts.
It seems like the beauty world is like the rest of the world ready for fall, the burnt oranges, the jewel tones, and the olives is just calling our names as well as pumpkin spice everything!!! So it's no surprise to see the beauty industry debuting fall collections.
Wet n Wild has been added to the list. Their fall collection, which is limited edition, and is called "Midnight Mermaid" is screaming jewel tones and metallics metallic!!, perfect for the dark, mysterious mermaid in all of us! The collection seems to be purely jewel tones which is perfect for medium to deep dark skintones. Metallic lipsticks seems to be the rage and Wet n Wild seems to be paying attention. They debuted a few metallic liquid lipsticks of their own in the past, which I was hoping would become a part of their permanent line, but you never know.
The line will have three eyeliners, four liquid metallic lipsticks, four liquid shadows, and a beautiful jewel toned highlighter!!!
The line will debut at Beauty Con L.A. August 12&13, Ulta.com august 13th, wetnwild.com August 14th, and in stores September 1st!!! What are you getting? Let me know in the comments below. I want the lipsticks and of course the highlighter!

Ulta 15 piece Set


I received this15 piece set free with my purchase of $19.50 or more in Ulta Beauty products. I purchased two matte liquid lipsticks and received my bag. The bag color choices were pink and purple I chose pink. The bag and the contents are perfect for spring. The samples are deluxe size which is a little over sample and just under full size. You will receive everything from eyeshadow palettes to blushes even three brushes that are mini. If you have a daughter that’s beginning to get into makeup this is perfect. Plus the bag is perfect to pair with jeans and dress it up. I like to reuse my bags I get from purchases and ipsy so that I have a different and fresh bag to rock my stuff in. How to reuse your bags is for another post. This deal is limited so head over to Ulta and get yours. Video will be coming soon.
