I have a Sephora haul roundup review sharing a look at some new launches! There are lots of new products that dropped this month. A few of these I’ve already shared but many of you have asked for comparisons and more details so I’ll answer your questions below. If you’re not signed up for the Sephora Beauty Insider Program I highly recommend you do (you can sign up here for free). Being a member opens up access to their promos, events, early access and more.
New Base Products
I’m always excited to try new foundations and complexion enhancers. The Drunk Elephant B-Goldi Bright Drops combine skincare and color in glowy golden shimmer serum. The B-Goldi Bright Drops have 5% niacinamide to help with brightening and dark spots. I like mixing this with the D-Bronzi Sunshine Drops and Protini Polypeptide Cream for my base. It gives my skin a naturally glowy base with a hint of bronze for more color. The drops are versatile – you can use them all over the face, mixed with moisturizer, mixed with foundation or as a subtle highlight. I like that the shimmer has just the right amount of glow – not too much and not too little.
There are quite a few new foundations out now. Two hydrating skin tints I tried and love are the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Skin Tint (I wear Medium 1) and the Hourglass Veil Hydrating Skin Tint (I wear Shade 9 or 10). Both are great for normal to dry skin types and have a balm like texture with sheer to medium coverage. I like these for a glowy very natural skin-but-better kind of base. On good skin days or days I don’t want a lot of makeup I apply either tint and then add concealer to spots I need more coverage.
A lot of you wanted to know which one was better, I think they’re both great. The Bobbi Brown tint has SPF and a slightly thinner texture. On my skin it has more of a hydrating finish while the Hourglass tint is thicker and more balmy with a tiny bit more pigment. I have a slight preference for the Bobbi Brown, but both are great. If you have normal/oily skin and want the same concept but not as hydrating, check out the Too Faced Healthy Glow Skin Tint or It Cosmetics CC+ Nude Glow instead.
Fenty added a foundation stick called the Eaze Drop Blur Stick Foundation and I’m obsessed. It has a texture that glides onto the skin with a satin finish. I really like that it’s not too matte so it doesn’t emphasize texture or pores. It has a slight blurring effect with medium coverage. I like layering it on top of the Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint. I wear the same shade in both the fluid and stick in Shade 9. I also swatched Shade 10 of the stick below as well.
Patrick Ta Launches
I love what Patrick Ta has been creating these days and always look forward to the next launch. He added a few new shades of the Major Headlines Blush. I picked up one of the new shades She’s Flushed which is a pretty medium rose pink duo (I think it will be pretty for fall).
He also added new coordinating shades of the Major Headlines Matte Suede Lipstick & Silky Lip Cremes. I picked up a few to try. Shy is a pale pink, Flushed is a neutral rose, Blushing is a berry rose and Seductive is a deeper plum mauve. Out of all the shades I tried I think Blushing is my fav in the Silky Lip Creme formula.
Eye Makeup Favorites
There are some new basics for the eyes which I think are worth checking out. Laura Mercier reformulated the Caviar Stick Matte Eyeshadow and Caviar Tightline Eyeliner. I really love the new eyeliners for intense pigment, smooth texture and long lasting wear time.
For the lashes I can’t rave enough about the Too Faced Better than Sex Foreplay Mascara Primer. It’s one of the few primers I’ve tried that holds the curl and helps mascara adhere better to the lashes. 100% worth checking out in my opinion.
For brows my usual go-to’s are from Anastasia Beverly Hills or Benefit, but I’ve been really enjoying the Kosas brow products too. The Brow Pop is a great shaping pencil with intense pigment to fill in the brow area. Kosas just launched the Brow Pop Nano which has a super fine tip. This has one of the smallest tips for a brow pencil that I’ve tried and I like that it’s sturdy. I wear Medium Brown in both.
Last but not least is a quick look at the Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder Blush. I’ve been really loving everything I’ve tried from Givenchy and I’m so happy the loose powder blushes finally arrived in the US. I ordered three to try but honestly I think I’m going to have to try them all. 1 Mousseline Lilas is a lilac pink, 2 Taffetas Rose is a soft baby pink and 3 Voile Corail is a soft coral. Each powder contains four different colors. They come with a sifter cap where you can mix and swirl the colors on the cheeks. I prefer applying with a brush but the puff allows you too apply product with more coverage/pigment.
That wraps up my Sephora haul roundup review. I hope you found the swatches helpful! Let me know if you’ve tried any of these and your thoughts.
