I feel like I’ve been covering more of Too Faced, Tarte, and Smashbox launches in particular. In terms of brands that caught my personal eye this year, I would say Bite Beauty, Urban Decay, and Cle de Peau.
I am fortunate that I have been able to purchase most of this year’s holiday offerings just to review them, so I am not really longing for anything in particular. I would like to see Tom Ford’s new candles in person to see why the price is what it is (over the top, which I expected, but still).
I’m a big fan of Anastasia’s Lipgloss and MAC Vamplify, as well as some of the more lipgloss/lip stain hybrids like YSL Glossy Stains, Tom Ford Patent Finish Lip Color, etc.. I also like NARS newer Velvet Lip Glides, but they don’t retain the glossiness for as long as traditional glosses (it’s a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid).
I did not have any! Maybe anti-inspiration? I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup growing up, and I didn’t really have an interest in it either (so it wasn’t a huge point of contention that I couldn’t wear it), but as soon as I tried it for myself, I fell in love!
