Cosmetic Launch Roundup: September 8-14, 2019

I couldn’t come up with a witty introduction so… Yeah, enjoy this week’s releases and be sure to give me your opinions in the comments 🙂

Rude Cosmetics is back on the scene with two palettes to get festive with for Halloween parties. There is the City of Pastel Lights ($15), a 12-pan palette with beautiful colors for those going for mystical or fantasy looks. Then the big sister palette, City of Neon Lights, is meant for skipping trick-or-treating and going straight for the wild party scene. Neon Lights costs $22.50 for 24 shades. Both palettes are available online.

Kara Beauty is seriously making my wallet shake (in a good way!) with these palettes. This week is no different, especially since they added two more PRO palettes and two adorable palettes for the fall season. The PRO palettes are Drama Queen, an assortment of playful colors, and Dusk To Dawn, obviously with neutrals and pops of color. Both palettes are available for pre-order at $28.74 each.
