Cosmetic Launch Roundup: November 7-15, 2018

Interrupting your holiday product forecast to bring you product launches that feature glitter and fun colors! I love the holidays but honestly I’m glad that most brands are still focusing on other themes or concepts. I know you’re curious so let’s get on to the launches.

Colourpop Dupes Itself?

Colourpop Cosmetics dropped a teaser on Monday November 5th with a photo of popular beauty influencer Bretman Rock. Everyone immediately knew that this meant a collaboration, but nothing could have prepared me for a déjà vu moment.

Dupe It Up: Ucanbe edition

Welcome to Dupe It Up, where I present dupes of popular or mainstream brands and their dupes.

Mini Launch Roundup (October 26-November 1)

This format is a little different from the usual cosmetic launch roundups because most of the brands have either released their products or are preparing to release things outside of the 2-week range I usually write about.

Monthly Favorites: October 2018

The first ever “favorites” post is here and I just want to say that October was a decent month for the beauty world but the multiple-palettes-at-one-time stuff needs to chill for the month of November. I don’t mind the palettes being launched; brands just don’t offer bundles, with the notable exceptions of Beauty Creations and…

Dupes I’d Love to See

I like saving money and if you read this blog regularly, you like saving your change for a rainy day as well. There are so many beautiful products out there but with an unattractive price tag. With this in mind, I wanted to share the palettes that I’d love to own but since the price…
