Anti-Haul; New and Upcoming Releases!

     Hey there guys! I haven’t done one of these in so long, but I feel like it’s about the perfect time to do an anti-haul with the holidays approaching. I’ve been stalking Trendmood and Indiemood just to know what my wavering self-control is up against. Guys, there’s some gorgeous things coming out and I feel like I need to be held accountable. I’ve made two purchases so far, and I need to reign myself back in, because money doesn’t grow on trees. Let’s go ahead and get started with the festivities of me talking myself out of things! 

NARS Queen of the Night

     This one almost got me, guys. It’s a beautiful shimmer palette that looks like it has some beautiful toppers for your looks. Kind of like the Ignited palette that I bought, thinking it was going to be able to be noticeable alone. Wrong. That’s, of course, not to say that it’s not gorgeous. But when I say this almost got me, it almost got me. NARS has afterpay. Afterpay is my weakness- and I know it can snowball, so I have to stay strong. It’s beautiful, but like I have to ask myself for most things- “Will I use it?”. And if I have to ask myself that, the answer is probably no. And I don’t need to spend $58 on something I’m just going to look at and occasionally swatch.

Shu Uemura x Pokemon 

    I’m not even going to lie- I want this for the packaging, and the name. But the colors are very underwhelming. I have no experience with Shu Uemura, so who knows? It might be a bomb formula. But with the theme of Pikachu, this is what you came up with? The whole aesthetic of pokemon is bright colors and out of the box designs. The doodle Pikachu is to die for, but I don’t need another neutral palette with a single pop of color. The lash curler is really cute with the little charm, and it looks like they’re doing brushes, blush/contour, eyeliner and is that a wallet? It’s honestly adorable, but… why? 

 

Viseart New Grande Pro

   I don’t have too much to say about this- while I love the viseart formula, I do think that Rainbow palettes are little overdone at the moment. I mean I have a few palettes currently that would qualify as a rainbow palette, and cumulatively across my collection, as well. This is something that I just don’t need.

Ruby May Neon Lights Palette

  This is one I actively have to talk myself out of, I’m intrigued by the neon colors but I know realistically that I’m not at a point to implement them into my looks. This palette is gorgeous though, if a little eye-stabby. What can I say? I like the pain, and I like this palette. Maybe if some reviews come out I’ll be moved to buy it, but for now I’m not planning to buy it.

 

Morphe 3503 Fierce By Nature Palette

     I don’t know if this is going to catch me some heat or whatever, but wow a neutral palette with a pop of green. Yawn. Sure it has a couple of colors that are more red and that one weird yellow-green color above the bright green, but I’m not feeling this palette. Morphe hasn’t impressed me so far, so I’m not moved to buy any releases beyond my JCxMorphe palette that I bought on pure impulse. 

Pat McGrath Midnight Sun

   This one is on here purely because of the price.  I simply cannot justify a palette for $130, no matter how drop-dead gorgeous it is. Maybe if I come across it on sale or on reddit, I’ll splurge, but for now, I just simply can’t. But would you look at that.  I mean, I know it’s a nearly neutral palette with a pop of purple, so realistically I don’t need it. But I also know that I love the PMG transformative formula.

Miss Fame Beauty’s Under My Skin

   As I was scrolling through IndieMood I was a little torn, because when I tell you that for me the indie brands are killing it, I mean it. But this list isn’t here to convince me to buy things, but to not buy things. While I do love this palette and want to buy it; I’ll not be moved. This almost reminds me of PMG in the layout, and the colorstory kills me, but much like the Ruby Ray palette, I’m unfamiliar with the formula and so will most likely not be buying this at least until I know more about it.  

Kraken Cosmetics End of the World Palette

      This particular one is another one I’m very curious about- however, it is pastels. Which I already have on hand, so I may be passing on this one because I already am able to emulate having the palette. This is a beautiful palette that I know nothing about, I’d suggest waiting for reviews unless their formula is familiar to you.

Likely Makeup Clown Blush Palette

    Anything that I could say is pretty much already in the name of the palette- which is basically that I’m pretty sure that this is not for me. I’ve always thought yellow blush makes you look kind of sickly, and while it looks gorgeous on their model, I’m definitely not taking my chances. Those pinks are lovely though, but I can’t commit to a full blush palette if I only want a single color.

Hell Bites Beauty’s Holy Trinity Palette

When I look at this all I can think of is a darker and more imposing Secret Sinner palette from P Louise.  This one is substantially more vampy than the P Louise one, and to be honest, I don’t really do too much with vampy colors. I’m generally more for champagne or silver shimmers and natural tones with the occasional pastel or bright color thrown in. That being the case, pretty though this palette is, I may wait for one more my speed.

Eunique Beauty Elite Mini Palettes

   Now, this particular entry on this list is here because while it’s stunning, and it is, that pressed teal glitter looks too chunky for use around the eyes. Honestly, I’m not on body glitters or any of that, but eye glitters are my thing. It would be too tempting to put it on my eye, even though I can see the large hexagonal chunk glitter just sitting there. If you guys hear anything different on this particular one, I’d be interested to hear it. Because, honestly, I won’t lie. I’m lusting over that teal shade a fair bit and would love nothing more than to hear that I’m wrong in this case and that I can smear that beautiful color all over my eye.

 

     I think I’m going to end this one here, on a good note. These were just the things that stood out to me when I was scrolling through @theindiemood and @Trendmood1 so it may not be all of the new releases, just the ones I wanted to talk about. Honestly, I did a fair amount of scrolling because some of the things I actually wanted and just couldn’t bring myself to talk myself out of them. Aside from talking myself out of things, I’ve bought a few new products from brands that I have no experience with, like Midas, OMFG Cosmetics, Mellow Cosmetics and Melt. I may do kind of a rapid fire review post including all of these new products. Though I may need to break the post into two, just because I know Mellow is international and I’m not sure about OMFG. 

     If you guys are talking yourself out of some of the new releases, how are you doing with that? I hope you guys make informed decisions and only buy the things that will spark joy… or that you get at a hefty discount. That counts as joy, right?

What’s New; New Arrivals at the Posh Peach Pre-Fall!

      Hey there, guys! Is this another Thursday where I’m on time? I think it is! For today’s post,  I journeyed to the far off land of Downtown Columbus to gather you guys some What’s New content for this up-coming Fall! The Posh Peach is known here at JnJ for bringing styles and aesthetics that I absolutely adore! This time when I wandered in was no different! I meandered around the store looking for anything that caught my eye, which if I’m being honest, was everything. 

     Since I’m a little rusty on this sort of content, I’m just going to jump right in. For the outfits, I stuck to the new arrivals instead of doing my usual and scavenging the clearance rack. The first outfit that I found and promptly came to love, was this one. Some white skinnies and this cute yellow shirt that said ‘Raise Good Humans’– that’s a sentiment I can totally get behind! However, I could not for the life of me, find the shirt on their site. It may be already on clearance, since I waited a little bit to make this post. Bummer! Though I did find a cached version of the page that appears to show the shirt!

   My second outfit, because I was too lazy to take the pants off for this one, is a subtle callback to the simpler times of the early to mid-2000s, where you could wear skirts and dresses over your pants, and only get judged a little. Ashley Tisdale was queen of that aesthetic, and I channeled just a little bit by pairing this dress with these pants. It looked better in my head, and truthfully would be miles better with a braided leather belt. I’m thinking boho chic? But hey, it has pockets!  

       This next outfit was on the opposite side of the spectrum, color-wise. The pants I couldn’t find on the site, of course, as is my custom. I will say that though I can’t locate them now, they are in my heart. These were the most comfortable skinnies I’ve ever put on my legs. I loved them. They had plenty of give and stretch, they were breathable and didn’t feel overly hot. I liked the tank as well with these, I think it paired perfectly and would great with some chunky wooden beads. If this particular outfit is still on sale when I get my paycheck, I would like to go back for it.

        Next up, is this light T-shirt dress. It was a soft and forgiving fabric that felt cool to the touch. Perfect for the warmer days of fall, as I don’t think it would be appropriate to sweat in it for the summer. It was a little ruched on the side, which I don’t generally like but it didn’t detract from the cuteness of the dress. It’s slightly olive colored, so it would be great with some off-white or soft tan tights. Maybe some wedges. Actually, scratch my summer comment, it could be a nice bathing suit cover-up if you really want to get some use out of it before the summer ends, which I don’t blame you!

 

     Anyone like animal print? That’s back in, right? I don’t know much about trends as of late, which is ironic given the post you’re reading. I have seen animal print more and more on my Instagram feed. This actually was the first thing where I was able to find both pieces in question! The skirt itself, was a little like silk? It was a tightly woven fabric, that I can’t place. Evidently, I’m a little tall for this skirt, but that’s okay! I do like the ankle look, because it pairs great with my favorite brown suede boots. This is ordinarily not my style, but I do like the way the shirt brings it together aesthetically. As with most of their shirts, this one is very lightweight and soft. It’s super comfy and is emblazoned with the words ‘Easy Tiger’.

 

    We’re to the last one! And, of course, I had to try a romper on my trip to my favorite boutique! You guys know me by now, I love rompers! This one… oh my gosh. It’s gorgeous. Lacy. Zips on the side. It’s perfect. It would so cute with a white triangle shawl, and some pearl earrings, maybe some strappy black or sandles… maybe some flats. I love this romper. It was insanely comfortable! This sort of romper would be great for summer, fall and eventually spring, if you warm it up a little with some tights. 

 

    What a perfect note to end this post on, I linked all of the stuff I could find so you can check it out and maybe order it for yourself, if you want to make me cry. As usual, I highly recommend you check them out and give them some love! I’m sure you’ll love them just as much as I do!

Five Fashionable Years With The Posh Peach

Hey there guys! Over the weekend, the Posh Peach, my favorite local store here in Columbus, celebrated their Fifth anniversary here in town! I, of course, had to attend! They had the event beginning once they opened. They were going to hand out goodie bags to the first 25 to walk in. You know I was going to be among the first 25. Not only did I get a goodie bag, but I made friends!

I got there at 8:30, an hour and a half from opening, and there were already 7 people outside. They had been there since 4:30 at the earliest. Talk about dedication! I was almost going to show up at 9:30, and I’m glad I didn’t stick to my original plan because by 9:30, there were more than 25 people out there. They weren’t playing with that free stuff.

Now, I was planning to get some What’s New content today, but when I tell you those lines were loooong, they were long. The best I was able to do was snag my goodie bag, exchange contact info and snap some photos of some of the new things I saw. First off, I’m going to be narcissisitic for a moment and show the picture I had taken of me in front of the Fiesta themed backdrop, because it was the first thing I went to. Last year, I was too insecure to get my picture taken and I’m kind of thrilled that I was able to actually do it this year. 

 

Now, moving on from that segue, my goodie bag, at first was completely useless to me. I had a scrunchie and some of those no tear hair ties, that look like those stretchy bracelets that used to go on keyrings, plus a 5 dollar Posh Peach gift card and evidently a pair of earrings, that I didn’t see at first. I traded both of the useless items for earrings and a bracelet from my newfound friends. Much better!

     There was also the customary snacks, cookies and macarons. The cookies, I found honestly lackluster this year. They weren’t very sweet, like a cookie is supposed to be. But that’s absolutely no reflection on the Posh Peach, because I love them. I will say that the cookies were so cute. It’s a shame they didn’s taste as good as they looked.

There was also the cutest little mini pinata on the table. 

    Now I can’t really say too much about the new releases at the Posh Peach. Y’know, since I wasn’t able to do my What’s New content. So, I’ll leave a little gallery below!

Tutorial Tuesday; Pride Inspired the B in LGBTQ

Hey, guys! you’re witnessing the birth of a new (possible) day of content! That I conveniently posted on the wrong day…  I want to get myself more comfortable with doing tutorials and makeup related things, since I’ve been getting evidently really, really into it. I’ve been coming up with looks left and right and this is one of my favorites. At the time of writing, I’ve worn this one 3 times this week when ordinarily I do whole new looks for my ‘me’ looks that don’t tie in with challenges. I almost never revisit looks. So, that’s a miracle and calls for a tutorial.

This one very well may be basic, I did just learn that I can literally use my face as a pallet and mix shadow colors on my face. I don’t know how I forgot color theory, but I did. It was a game changer! I was dipping in to every color, where now I need every other color. I feel so bad that I had no idea!

For this tutorial, I used the James Charles x Morphe Pallette, Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ochre, Too Faced 3 in 1 spray, Eyelure Accents, and BH Cosmetic Brushes. 

Onward to the Tutorial!

 

In that last picture please excuse my weird blotchy cheek! I was playing with yellow blush for my Pikachu look for my Starter Pokemon Challenge… Guess I didn’t wash it off. It’s okay, though! I don’t think it’s too noticable, but just enough to apologize for.

I know to people who do makeup all the time, this look is so, so basic, but I was really proud of it and I hope you like it too. This might be an ongoing thing, or maybe just when I’m proud- who knows? I wanted to have fun, and share it with you! Also, go check out Skokey Glow on youtube, she was the inspiration for this naming!
