Cosmetic Launch Roundup: May 1-7, 2019

May is officially here and I am actually enjoying the weather here in Kentucky. It was 80 degrees yesterday but the beauty industry is getting hotter with the launches of this week. Most of the brands mentioned are either new to the Roundup or have been featured on an semi-regular basis but enough chit chat. Let’s talk makeup.

Beauty Creations has a new collection and its bursting with color. Splash of Hues has two palettes, Volumes 1 and 2, with two different color stories. There are 9 shades in both palettes so its perfect for quick looks or for beginners. Each palette costs $12 or you can grab the bundle for $21! Splash of Hues launched on May 2nd only on Beauty Creations’ site.

Sarazaar Cosmetics finally launched their Culture Shook palette! The palette features 12 shades and when converted from pounds to dollars, the palette costs $45. A bit more than what I usually feature on this blog but this brand has such quality products that I made an exception. If you are interested in Culture Shook, grab one on Sarazaar’s site.
