New Arrivals

New items in Beauty HQ this week are:

NARSissist Wanted Power Pack Lip Kits in Hot Reds, Cool Nudes, and Warm Nudes | I have a very, very had time resisting lip minis. This week, for some customers, Ulta is offering 5x the points on NARS products. That sweetened the deal.

Lano Lips 101 Ointments in Strawberry, Peach, and Green Apple | This is a limited edition set at Net-a-Porter. When there was one last year, I missed it after procrastinating too long. Luckily, it came back! And this time it came back with Green Apple in tow. Green Apple and Peach are exclusive to Net-a-Porter in the US.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics | I have no matte eyeshadows except two very old MAC singles. I was kind of shocked at that discovery. Since retailers were offering this formula-favorite at half price this week, I took a chance.

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in Mona Lisa and Bette | Did anyone else notice that Net-a-Porter has had CT products on discount for months now? Stock keeps going in and out. These were only $24 each, which is still pretty ridiculous, but the swatches at The Beauty Look Book are incredible, and I got curious.

Cotarde Face With A View Concentrated Cream and Day Cream Mousse Cream | Caked to the Nines went to an indie beauty con and wrote about this brand. After clicking through, I discovered that both of their products do not have silicones. My skin doesn’t play nicely with silicones, and it’s hard to find affordable moisturizers without them. Check out Deal of the Day to learn how you can get these samples shipped to you.

Patchology Lip Service | This pretty “gloss-to-balm” treatment has been all over blogs lately. And I am impressionable. We’ll see if I like it as much as my beloved Lano products.

Lucky Vitamin Spring Beauty Bag | I love an opportunity to try more natural products I’d never interact with ordinarily. Plus, the bag. It’s so cute!

Reviews and swatches of these items are forthcoming.
