In the beauty community there are are products that come along that have a ton of buzz and hype and some end up being just that, hype. However, the new BECCA x Jaclyn Hill collaboration Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter isn’t one of them. It is truly a beautiful highlighter!
During this year’s Essence Music Festival, I was able to get an exclusive up close look at the newest beauty subscription service called the Essence BeautyBox. Similar to other monthly mail subscription services, this beauty box will feature luxury samples of the latest trends in beauty, delivered directly to your mailbox. However, Essence is differentiating themselves by offering brands and products curated by the magazine’s trusted beauty editors as well as featuring up-and-coming independent brands from African American owned companies. As they describe it, it is created “for us, by us.”
Who doesn’t love a good palette!? Especially when it is a special edition palette created by a friend! Missy Lynn (aka Start2FinishMUA) teamed up with BH Cosmetics for his awesome palette, the Missy Lynn Palette, which features 6 eyeshadows and 2 baked highlighters.
I had the pleasure of trying a great new — to the USA — product called Bioderma Sensibio H2O from Beautylish. It is a super gentle makeup remover that feels just like water and is non-rinse.
