  4. IKR?!? I was telling myself, self try not to buy a bunch of lipstick this year. Not a resolution, because I have so much family drama going on, I'm already mad at 2017. More like a friendly reminder.

    I found a photo of the sample card:

    I'm kind of excited to see what Time looks like. I got two of the other Alice collection lipsticks but not that one, because the reviews were not great, and I'm curious to see what it looks like as a liquid, because all the meh reviews were based on the fact that it sheered out upon application.

  7. Kylie Jenner is releasing a new palette called Royal Peach. Trying to get some of that Too Faced money, huh? She claims it's inspired by makeup she wore at NYFW, but we all know that's code for "Did you see how much money Estée Lauder gave Jerrod Blandino?"

    At first I thought that blue looked totally random, but then I thought of a few Sweet Peach tutorials that I've seen where someone included a pop of bright blue and it looked really good, so now I'm thinking that was a smart move, including that color, even though it looks weird in the palette.

  8. She really needs to get some originality for her products, I mean when I saw her palette and the name the first thing that came to mind was Two Faced. Also this might just be because I'm in Australia but her shit is way to overpriced.

  10. I have never felt the need to buy anything from her, but her stuff being way too expensive is a standard complaint. I assume that it's because the people who stan for her are going to pay whatever ridiculous price she demands. Her packaging looks super cheap to me. I can't imagine that her manufacturing costs are very high.

  11. I feel the same I was excited at first but then I realised how she was alienating her fans from countries outside America with the prices and just decided to stick with the dupes. Everything looks cheap and very unimaginative.

  12. Did you hear any of the speculation that some of Colour Pop's ultra matte liquid lipsticks and some of the Kylie lip kits have the same formula/may have been produced in the same facility? I found that very interesting.

    I can't even. If you're gonna blatantly rip off a (probably superior) product from another brand, at least have the decency to be subtle about it.

  13. I think it has been confirmed that it's the same facility, and there are products from Kylie and Colour Pop that look nearly identical, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same formula. I personally don't find Colour Pops liquid lipsticks that wearable. They are really dry and stiff. I got a bunch because they're so cheap, but I hardly ever wear them.

    I think every palette she's done so far has been a blatant copy of something else.

  14. Same here with regards to the lipsticks. I don't even have particularly dry skin/lips, but I keep finding myself needing to apply lip balm, which kind of defeats the purpose, imo. I like the ultra satins much more than the mattes.

  15. I haven't ordered from them in a while. There was one of those lavender-grey colors they released in the Ultra Satins and I really liked it but then Kailyn kept wearing it and it dampened my enthusiasm.

  16. How about the upcoming Spring fashion trends?

    Lots of it seems pretty intriguing, and I'll be all too glad to see less crushed velvet, but I used this link in particular because I got a kick out of "Activist Chic." Great, just what I was hoping for, more dumb Tumblr fashion.

    Either way I'm both intrigued and fearful of an 80s revival. Could be either glam as hell or a complete shitshow, especially seeing as lots of sources are already citing a shoulderpad trend.

  17. I like strong shoulders as long as there are no pads involved. Also like stripes and platforms. Everything else, no.

    Purses that are only big enough to hold a phone seem like a good idea, until you realize you are just as likely to lose them as just the phone by itself.

    Kind of surprised that they are talking about pink as a spring color being a trend when light pink is always a spring color. It did seem like there were a lot of turquoise and coral garments the last couple of springs.

    Thank you for sharing this article!

  18. Surprised me as well, seeing as other sources are claiming blue, khaki, and army green to be this spring's "it" colours. Those I find more alluring than pink, like you said pink and floral are always must-haves in spring collections.

    The stripes and platforms, though, definitely looking forward to those. Not just vertical stripes but there's also a trend of ultra-wide horizontal stripes which looks pretty great for the most part.

  19. See, this lost creditability (for me at least) when they mentioned crocs. No, just...no.
