  1. Just wanted to give a heads up, I'm planning on making lots of pretty dress updates when we get to Paris Couture Week later this month. Couture Week is life.

  2. Speaking of Urban Decay, they're releasing a new line of primers and setting sprays! I saw some at Ulta this afternoon; they didn't have the full line out but I'll be really interested to see how the Urban Defense clear sunscreen feels. I'm also looking at the De-Slick and Optical Illusion primers, they felt really nice when I tested them.

  4. I have all of their old prep and setting sprays, so I'm questioning if I need the new ones (like, if the formula is better, etc.). I also have the old pore-minimizing face primer, which I will probably replace with one of the new primers.
    it's...so beautiful :') :heart-full:

  5. Well, for what it's worth, I think they did actually change the formulas. The old De-Slick was really thick and dry, this new one is a lot lighter and spreads better. I got samples at Sephora this afternoon, I'll see how different it actually is.

  6. The only fashion news I want is that skinny jeans are going out style and normal jeans are a mainstay.

    I'm totally not bitter I can't find black jeans in stores that aren't skinny. Not at all.

    Cait is obviously taking a photo to make up for the overshopped one on their Vanity Fair mag cover. I wish they would have just called their line "stroke".

  8. I've seen the previews of the line...it is incredibly boring, generic white-girl neutrals. Nude lipsticks, peach blushes, brown eyeshadow. So, everything that's tired and been done to death. imo they should have gone with more bold colors.

  9. Saw this yesterday, but was tired because I worked a 12 hour shift at work the night before.

    In a few days, Anastasia Beverly Hills is debuting its new lip palette which has 18 colors including some primaries as it is meant to be a palette you can use to customize your own lip colors.

  10. Oh jeez, this subforum is going to murder my bank account. Now there's a community where I can actually lurk and learn about this makeup shit what all the other girls are going on about--and it's full of Kiwis! Chocolate and peanut butter.

    Looking forward to the return of chunky heels. Shoulderpads, not so much.

  11. I think that's what happens in general when makeup companies do celebrity collaborations, they end up doing what kind of makeup the celebrity would wear and since most famous people aren't particularly adventurous with their makeup, the offerings are pretty tame. The only MAC+famouslady offering that I can think of that wasn't boring was the Rihanna one and that's probably because Rihanna herself has a more outre sense of style. Oh, and the one they did with Brooke Candy, that one had more unusual colors, but Brooke Candy is also a less famous celebrity, and like Rihanna, known for not wanting to look like everyone else.

  12. Everything from the colours to the packaging looked very old lady-ish to me. Seemed more like Estée Lauder or something than MAC.

  13. Exactly! I don't think I've seen makeup that yawn-worthy in years.

  17. Not really news, since it was announced months ago, but this went on sale in the Sephora app today:

    Struck me as a nice collision of worlds that my fellow Kiwi Beauty Parlour denizens might get a kick out of.

  18. Apparently, Viseart is putting out a little mini palette that only costs 30 dollars. I'm kind of excited, because everyone raves about Viseart but I've never had the desire to drop 80 dollars on an eyeshadow palette.

  19. It's *gorgeous* and it should have come out last year at this time. Because enough warm palettes! My God, I am so tired of the Modern Renaissance/Sweet Peach color scheme. Golds and coppers and rusts and warm browns are literally my favorite eyeshadow colors, but it's like eating your favorite candy for breakfast everyday, I'm bored and nauseated.

    This MAC collection looks like it's gonna be really good: http://www.temptalia.com/mac-make-up-art-cosmetics-collection-for-january-2017/
