Cosmetic Launch Roundup: September 1-6, 2018

Curling up with a book as rain pelts the window, a fire roaring in the fireplace, and an apple cinnamon candle burning in the background, the smell permeating through the room. Autumn is right around the corner, meaning colder weather (insert crying face emoji here). However, there are many things to look forward to, such as the “Pumpkin Spice Latte” from Starbucks or Halloween.
Prepare to spice up the season with a few colors that are perfect for the changes in nature; plum, burgundy, grey, forest/olive greens, and more. While spring/summer exuded warm tone palettes and highlighters, autumn presents the chance to tone it down somewhat with more earthy and subdued tones.
With an image of all that autumn brings, here are the releases for the first two weeks of September.

Makeup Geek intends to fully embrace autumn with their gorgeous new eyeshadows. Four splendid shades, each with a dynamic pop to them. Warm copper, tantalizing teal, soft beige, and a smoky brown round out the newest shades to the realm of Makeup Geek’s shadows (there are over 135 shades total). Retailing for $6 each, these shadows are affordable and a staple in any magnetic palette you customize. Available at Makeup Geek’s website.

BH Cosmetics launched their new White Marble brush set on August 29th and they are stunning! If you are an avid watcher of home improvement shows and love the idea of marble countertops, you understand what the brushes look like. BH Cosmetics is known for bringing their A-game with their brush sets and the White Marble set is no different. There are nine brushes along with the angled brush holder; four face brushes and five eye brushes. The set costs $25 and is only available online.

Colourpop Cosmetics knows how to kick off the school year with pizzazz. Announcing their Back to School collection, Colourpop also donated backpacks and school supplies to a women and children’s shelter in Los Angeles. The collection launched on Thursday Aug 30th during the *Labor Day sale* and includes:

Study Buddy super shock eyeshadow set ($25), Knew Idea lippie stix kit ($25), Back @ It and Extra Attention ultra-matte lip kit ($20 each), OTW ultra-metallic lip set ($20). You also purchase the entire collection for $110. (*All listed prices are the discounted prices during the sale*)

If something catches your eye, quickly snatch it up on Colourpop’s website; it’s almost guaranteed that these products will sell out within a few days.

Back to School/Work

Barry M goes mythological with their new Unicorn Primer Drops! The new primer contains all-natural ingredients including acai berries. The drops appear pink as you apply them but blends flawlessly into the skin, with brightening, hydrating, and detoxifying effects for the skin. The primer is available on Barry M’s website and retail for $10.40 USD.

Geek Chic Cosmetics is switching things up with Star Jellies. These new lip glosses are available in 4 shades with added moisturizer ingredients (rosehip oil and pomegranate seed oil). Best of all, these new glosses will set you back only $8 for each shade! Only available online.

Catrice Cosmetics is finally releasing more shades of their best selling HD Liquid Coverage Foundation. The foundation range had been lacking, with 4 shades catering to fair skin tones.

Makeup Revolution is launching two new products! The best-selling Conceal & Define concealer is getting a reboot. The brand announced via Twitter on August 28th that they would be releasing the Super-Size version of the concealer due to popular demand.

As if that wasn’t enough to get fans hyped for autumn, MUR announced their Full Coverage Conceal & Define foundation. Fans are understandably excited as Makeup Revolution has had success with their Fast Base foundation sticks so the hype surrounding this launch is palpable. Mark your calendars for September 5th!
