Feeling Jelly?

Colourpop is back again (as they are every week) with another release and this time with something quite innovative. Throughout this week the brand has teased the new products, asking fans their thoughts. Most thought that because of the swatches looking like a lip gloss, Colourpop was releasing new lip glosses. Noooo, said Colourpop. Lo…

Being Rude Is Worth It

I know. The title of this article gave you pause. Am I right? The title refers to Rude Cosmetics, an indie brand that has been mentioned several times before here on The Trendy Wallet. The brand has been going into hyper speed with their eyeshadow palette releases; they just released their Whatever Forever palette on…

Definite Purchases (August 2018)

There are already so many products that have been launched and we are just now in the middle of August. I made a list of products that I plan to splurge on this month. Some of these will be reviewed here on the blog; just let me know in the comments which product catches your…

Triple The Palettes

I absolutely love the brand Essence because the products are of good quality and cost less than a meal at my favorite restaurant. I always look forward to their new products because they have found a niche but always seem to make the next collection even more astounding.

Launches of August 8th and 9th

Today (August 8th) BH Cosmetics launched their Take Me Back to Brazil: Rio Edition palette. The sister palette to their wildly popular palette of the same name (minus the Rio edition part), this Rio Edition contains all shimmer shades. The layout is exactly the same and honestly, I am not too thrilled about this palette….

If you have not heard of E’tae you have been missing out! I first heard of this hair brand about two years ago and after watching several videos of the products being used, I became intrigued. Learning that the products help transition women from relaxed (use of chemical products) to natural hair was inspiring and,…

I’m back with another article devoted to indie brands!! (cue applause) Since I got a few responses from the last article, I figured a sequel was in order. Now most of these were either recommended to me through comments/emails or through my random Instagram scrolls. One thing to note: Tattoo Junkee is included but the…

Cosmetic Launch Roundup: August 1-16, 2018

August. “The dog days of summer.” The last month of summer before the leaves begin to fall and we officially welcome Autumn (my favorite season). I’ve never paid much attention to makeup releases during August but then again there have never been so many that have caught my eye. But these first two weeks of…

High-End Brand Wish list

Now my “high-end” wish list is simply that: a wish list. I am constantly looking for deals and I’m sorry, the money that people spend on some brands gives me a headache. However, if I were to receive these items as samples or a generous person gifted them to me, I would not complain!

Beauty Bucket List: 20’s

I celebrated my birthday (July 8) and I realized that there are several beauty treatments and products that I have not tried. There are so many trends in the beauty world but only a few that I would actually try. So, this is my list of things I want to complete before I turn 30….
