2018 was a very mediocre year for me when it came to trying out new makeup. I intend to change that for this year. I have already seen posts for new launches that I am really excited to try this year, but there are also products that have been released for a while that I really want to finally try. On the other side of things, there are new releases that are going to be launched this year, and I’m not really interested in for one reason or another, and I plan out posting about those soon. I was initially going to talk about them all in one post, but I felt like that would be way too long. 🙂
Products I Want to Try
This palette will forever be on my wish list. I love purples and pinks, and this palette speaks to me. Check out that price though. I cannot bring myself to spend that much money on a palette unless I know I will love it. Maybe not even then. Maybe 2019 will be the year that I finally get the chance to try this one out. Natasha Denona has released a mini version of this one that has five shades in it for $25, so I may try that one first. If I like that one well enough I may splurge on the full size. But even for 5 shades for $25, that is still a little pricey. Basically, it breaks down to $5 per eye shadow. There are several other palettes from this brand, but this is the only one that I would try. From the looks of it, it has a nice mixture of warm and cool tones, and the purple and pink are just calling my name.
I feel like this new foundation has already broken the internet, and it hasn’t even official launched yet. I feel like in the YouTube beauty community, Morphe always has drama attached to its name. Honestly, I don’t really care about that, and I am excited to try this foundation. From what I’ve seen so far, it is reallllyyyyyy full coverage. My face has a lot of scarring and acne spots that I need to cover, so I usually gravitate to full coverage foundations. I have normal skin – not dry or oily, so this one may work for me. I don’t know. I will probably buy this one and the concealer when it launches and try it out. I may post a future review on it after I try it, so you guys can see how it worked for me and my skin type. By the way, this is going to be released with 60 shades. That is pretty bad ass. I feel like I have the hardest time finding foundations. Even though I have a lighter skin tone, I have a weird undertone. It’s neutral, but it doesn’t really lean cool or warm. If I have too warm of a foundation, I looked yellow af. I might have liver disease or something. If I wear a foundation that is too cool, then I look like I have a very unflattering sunburn. I don’t remember where I heard it, but someone said this foundation would have 12 shades in each tone and have varying undertones. This is going to be released for $18.
I didn’t get to try the Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick, but I heard that it was really good. I should have included that one on my list, but I figured since this one is new I’d talk about it instead. On Trendmood’s instagram, there isn’t a release date for this one yet; however, it claims that it will be full coverage. I already feel like 2019 will be the year of new foundations. I have already ordered 2 this year that I have been wanting to try, so what’s 2 more, right? This foundation is going to be released with 32, so not as much as the Morphe foundations. I hope that it has a good variety of shades and undertones. Especially, for the price. Well, I can’t say that for sure because the price hasn’t been posted yet, but it’s Hourglass. It’s not going to be cheap.
I really want to try this one. I haven’t really tried anything from Nars, except their long-wear foundation. This is the Color I Wanted Blush Palette, so it has the lighter tones. The Color II Palette has deeper shades for deeper skin tones. I am very picky when it comes to blush because I feel that (because of my weird ass undertone) they can look weird on me if I’m not careful. I’v heard really good things about Nars blushes, so I really want to try this one. For $59, that is a little bit steep. Howeverrrrrrrr, I want justify it by saying that I’m only paying a little less than $10 for each blush. That makes it sound a little better, right? I’m pretty sure I’m the queen of justification. 😀 BTW, this is limited edition, and I don’t know how long it has been out. Hopefully, I can get it before it’s gone.
The last thing that I would like to try is the Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette in Smokey. I got the Desert Dusk Palette for Christmas last year, and I really like that palette. Hopefully, if I do decide to get this one the formula is the same. Lately, I’ve been feeling darker, smokier looks. I think this palette could give me some super sultry, grungy looks which I’ve been into. The silver and black in this palette are what I most love about it. I know what you’re thinking…. But, Sam, you can get a black and silver in almost every palette. So what, STFU. I want this one. Why? Because it has 9 shades for $27, and I already know I like this brand’s eye shadow formula. Actually, I haven’t tried any of the Obsession palettes, and there are quite a few that I am interested in. So, if I like this one, I will probably buy the other one’s I like too.
So, I had a lot of other products on my list, but I narrowed it down to my top 5. I don’t do that new year’s resolution bullshit because I can never stick to it; however, I feel like I can make a goal to try more makeup this year and grow my collection just a little. There’s not harm there. Maybe to my wallet… and my boyfriend’s sanity. Worth the sacrifice, though, in my opinion. If you have tried these products or are excited to check any of them out, let me know your thoughts and opinions.
