There are always so many exciting new launches at Sephora, especially during May-June. This is peak time for Summer launches, and this year definitely has no shortage of newness. I put together a list of the new & hot launches at Sephora – all of which are from cruelty-free brands!

 

Oh boy. Where does one even begin? My wallet is practically weeping – I want everything! These are all prestige brands, so they are pricey – however, these are some of my all-time favourite brands. They are high quality, high-performance brands focusing on quality ingredients – and most importantly, they are cruelty-free (because really, it’s 2018 and testing on animals is barbaric and unnecessary!)

Products On My Radar

Powders

I’m most intrigued by the Hourglass & Marc Jacobs setting powders, as they’re rumoured to be absolutely incredible. I love using loose powder to set my makeup, especially ultra finely-milled powder as it looks the most natural and undetectable on the skin!

Lip Glosses

Lip glosses are one of the most popular trends for the summer. While this may not be particularly groundbreaking, I’m a firm believer that you can never have too many lip glosses. There are so many shades and formulas, and this season sees a surge of high-shine and metallic glosses. The Becca Glow Lip Gloss looks stunning from what I’ve seen in review videos! The Marc Jacobs Enamored Hydrating Gloss Stick has definitely sparked my interest. I love the regular glosses, so to see a new formula in a stick?! I’m not sure what to expect from this, but I shall have to investigate further!

Setting Sprays

In the sun and heat, we need all the help we can get to keep our makeup looking fresh. Setting sprays are an absolute must for me. Not only are they key to absorbing any excess powder sitting on the skin and adding a healthy glow, they also help to lock your makeup in place to prolong your makeup wear!  Cover FX recently launched the High-Performance Setting spray, and I’ll definitely be trying it once I’ve used up my Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray!

I can hardly believe that 2015 is over. As a child, I remember someone telling me that every year will seem to pass faster than the previous. I didn’t understand it at that time, but now I do. 2015 passed by faster than I ever could have imagined. It was full of ups and downs, but mostly it was the year that I really started to truly work on my blog, and make it more of a priority.

Here is a roundup of my top favourite makeup products throughout 2015:

  • Mac “Soft Ochre” Paint Pot
  • Mac Extra Dimension Eyeshadow “Sweet Heat”
  • Mac Electric Cool Eyeshadows
  • H&M High Impact Colour Eyeshadow “Chin Chin”
  • Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop Eyeshadow Sticks

There are a lot of pricy products on the market – some of which are not worth the hype or hefty price tag. Some, however, are definitely worth the splurge. Working in cosmetics has sparked a love for both high-end and drugstore makeup. For this post, I thought I’d put together mini-reviews for some of my favourite high-end products. Products that I personally think are worth the splurge.

Guerlain Meteorites:  Admittedly, I purchased these at first due mainly to their cute factor. But these hand-crafted, light-diffusing pressed powder pearls are a fantastic beauty product. They look gorgeous as a finishing/setting powder, and come in different shades. Some help neutralize/perfect, some add luminosity, or a bronze effect! They are extremely expensive though – a whopping $71! Definitely more of a luxury item, but they truly are beautiful!
