What's New? | NYX and Makeup Geek

I just got an email from NYX with information on a new "to-go" palette! There are 6 eyeshadows, a bronzer, a blush, and a highlight! How incredibly awesome is this for traveling and better yet, a drugstore purchase ?! The downside is they are $17 a piece which if you think about it, isn't too awful because you're getting 9 different products in one palette so that's roughly $1.89 a piece. The neutral one is called Wanderlust and the more colorful one is Bon Voyage. This is now available on the NYX website. 

Also, something amazing has come about. @MakeupGeekTV on Instagram posted these sneak peek pictures. It appears they are branching out from just shadows and brushes. They are now working on what they're calling Cashmere Lip Creams! Sounds to me like liquid lipsticks. And my goodness these colors look beautiful!

New on the Market: Drugstore & High End

Hi babes! Sorry I've been MIA lately, I've been super busy with YouTube and a bunch of other stuff. So let's just dive in to the new goodies that will be or have already released!

First up is a NYX product that will be coming out in June. SOOOOO soon! This is their new Liquid Suede lipstick. I can't imagine these being any more than $5 - $8 seeing as they're drugstore, although their prices have been increasing a lot lately. It looks like they made some beautiful neutral colors I can't wait to get my hands on that pink one!  
 Next is 6 Long Lasting 16 hour blushes by Too Faced. These have cute heart packaging and adorable names! These are a part of their Fall 2015 line so I'm not sure when these will be releasing. I'm assuming possibly in August? And do I spy their new foundation in the background?! "Born This Way" is what it is called. That should be releasing around the same time. I've never tried a Too Faced foundation so I'm excited to try that. I think I definitely want to get my hands on the Baby Love blush too! Eeeeek, I'm already starting a Fall wish list and it's not even officially Summer!
Next are the Maybelline Creamy Matte lipsticks. These have been the talk of the town all over the place. But, wait, because there's more! They are coming out with ten new shades that will be permanent! Clay Crush looks beautiful for Spring! OMG. I'm not sure if these are out already or not, but check your local drugstores and Ulta's because they may be sneaking onto the shelves already.
 Last is a new line from e.l.f. called Beautifully Bare which includes a blush ($4), blending brush ($6), foundation serum ($8), lash tint mascara ($4), defining mascara ($4), and a lip tint (not pictured $5) . They mentioned on their Instagram that there is a limited quantity for their launch so hurry while these last! I am definitely interested in getting the blush, foundation serum and that blending brush!

I know I just recently did a haul, but I have seriously been hoarding all of this stuff for the past month until I received everything to do my haul. It's been so hard for me to keep all of these goodies a secret so I released a few sneak peeks on my Instagram but now it's time for the big reveal!

Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick in Heiress and Girl Next Door
Macee Leigh Eye Pigments
These are the three pigments Patience sent me from the company Macee Leigh, which is an all natural makeup line. I wasn't expecting them to be sooo pigmented. These are stunning. Wow.

The Just One Tag

Last week I was tagged in a "Just One" tag by the awesome Beautylymin. This tag is where you have to choose only ONE product in each category which is obviously difficult for every girl because how can you choose JUST ONE?! But, I've somehow managed to narrow mine down. Here goes nothin'!


Facial Cleanser: This is more of a makeup remover, but it is also considered a cleansing oil. It is the Boscia Makeup-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil. This stuff works wonders at removing your makeup. I actually have a full review/demo on this beauty! I'm seriously running out fast and I need to pick up another one before I do run out.
Lip Gloss: NYX Buttergloss in Éclair has to be my favorite gloss because it adds such a beautiful pink color to my lips. Although it's a little sticky, I still love it, especially for the price!
Eyeshadow single: I don't have too many eyeshadow singles because I literally hoard palettes lol, but I have a handful of Colourpop eyeshadows which are singles and my absolute favorite is Fringe for all over the lid. It is a beautiful metallic cashmere color. I've put a pretty good dent in it so far.
Nail Polish: I've been wearing a ton of different nail polish lately, but I am obsesssseddd with mint green. I have a few mint green nail polishes, but this nail polish is just the perfect mint green. This is Essie's Mint Candy Apple.

Lipstick: This has to be YSL #10 Beige Tribute. It is the perfect pinky-nude. I've used this a few times, but I try to use it sparingly because I don't want to run out! The packaging on this is just on point, too! #allgoldeverything
Blush: I have quite a few blushes and it was hard to choose from, but I narrowed it down to NARS Douceur. The color is hard to describe. It's like a nude, peachy, pink color. I think it gives a beautiful natural look, great for no-makeup-makeup days!
Foundation: I love love love Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, but I've only tried a sample of it, so I can't really include it in here. So lately I've been loving the Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless. It seriously makes my skin look flawless. Only down side is it will cling to dry patches if you have any so I would just suggest exfoliating like crazy before using this bad boy.

Two items I would buy over and over again: If I ever ran out of my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer or The Balm Marylou-Manizer, I would definitely repurchase them! Two holy grails. Marylou-manizer is a highlighter that just makes your skin POP. Ugh I dieeeee when I use this beauty because it's just so gorgeous on the skin. The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer is a great consistency. It's not too watery and it's not too thick to the point where you can't blend it.
Mascara: This one was sooo hard for me because I really love my L'Oreal Voluminous mascara, but Urban Decay's Perversion just plumps out my lashes to no extent. The brush on this mascara is unlike any other mascara brush I've ever used before. This is a huge YES in my book. And in my personal opinion, better than the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara.
Eyeshadow palette: This is hands down my Lorac Pro Mega (or is it Mega Pro? I can never get it right!) I think Lorac has one of the best eyeshadow palettes. They are pigmented, have beautiful colors, and last long on the eyes. I chose this over my Lorac Pro 1 or Lorac Pro 2 because it has such a variety of shades. I know this was limited edition, so I'm sorry for including it, but I just had to!
Bronzer/Powder: I forgot to photograph my favorite bronzer, but it would have been Too Faced's Milk Chocolate Soleil! It smells amazing and it gives me the perfect bronze for my fair skin.
I tag the following ladies:
And if anyone else is interested, feel free to join in on this tag :)

10 Foundations Under $10

Tired of your old foundation and looking for a new one but don't want to break the bank? Here are 10 foundations under $10 or pretty close to it! What are some of your favorite foundations?
Rimmel Stay Matte $4.97
I don't own many Rimmel products, but I actually have this foundation and for the price this is a really great matte foundation and for the price, who could beat that?!
Maybelline Fit Me and Fit Me Matte & Poreless $5.94
Both Maybelline Fit Me foundations are reasonably priced at approximately $6 which isn't bad at all! I haven't tried the Fit Me foundation, but the Matte & Poreless one I've been trying for about a week now and I've been loving it! I will have a review of it up soon! The Matte and Poreless is more for oily to combo skin and the regular Fit Me is more for dry to normal skin types.
e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation $6
I haven't tried any e.l.f. foundations, but this one actually reminds me of the new NARS Luminous Silk foundation because of the packaging and OMG is that a pump?! Need this in your life!
 Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous$6.94
I personally am not a fan of Covergirl products, but EleventhGorgeous on YouTube raves about this stuff alllll the time and I figured there are people out there that enjoy their products, so this one's for you! And it's only $7 so it's worth the try!
NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat $7.50
This is another foundation I have yet to try, but I've heard great things about it. Plus it's under $8. Um, yes please!
Maybelline Dream Wonder $8.94
I see this everywhere on so many people's blogs, YouTube videos, Instagram and still I haven't picked it up and I don't know why I haven't yet because it's only $8.94! Go get you some!
L'Oreal True Match $8.97
This is a holy grail foundation for a lot of people. I personally wasn't AMAZED with it, but it was an okay foundation. They have a wide selection of colors though which is great for really fair and really deep skin tones.
 L'Oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder $10.97
I know I'm cutting it close with this one and I apologize but the next 2 are also going to be a bit over $10 but I had to throw them in here. Don't hate me! This foundation is pretty popular as well but another one I haven't tried. It's a smidge over $10 but it beats paying $30 for a foundation at Sephora if you're on a budget, right?!
 L'Oreal True Match LUMI $10.97
This is the sister to the L'Oreal True Match, except this is a more luminous foundation hence the LUMI part. This foundation comes with a pump which is always appreciated. This would be more for dry or normal skin tones.
L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte $11.88
This is the most expensive foundation and I know it's almost $2 over the $10 limit, but I just had to put this on here. So many people are loving this foundation and I personally cannot wait to try it myself!
Hope you enjoyed this! What are your favorite drugstore foundations under $10?

Liquid Liner Craze

Looking for a new liquid liner? NYX has 3 new ones available on their website, each $7 a piece and they are claiming to give "ultra fine lines"! They have a matte finish, vinyl and white. Matte liner is definitely a huge trend right now so kudos to NYX for always knowing what their customers want! I am definitely a NYX lover and I am excited to try the matte liner. Which ones are you interested in ?!
