Hello and welcome back. Today, I have part 2 of my Lust or Bust Series from Holiday 2019 Beauty Releases. This year has been overwhelming with launches to say the least so what I am doing is talking about all the products that have caught my eye, be it good or bad. These are the releases I find interesting this holiday season. Don’t miss part 1 of this post here
The Naked Honey Palette. Do I personally need it? No, not at all. Do I want it? Hell yeah. In fact I want the Naked Honey Drop Vault! But first let’s talk about the palette. It’s a honey themed naked palette full of golds and warm browns. I have swatched it and it looks gorgeous in person. I keep trying to talk myself out if this palette by saying I have the Colourpop Uh-Huh Honey but. But, this is just different okay… I want it. I want anything honey or bee themed.
The Urban Decay Naked Honey includes 12 shades for $49.00
Then you have the Naked Honey Drop Vault. This includes the palette, a golden Honey Eyeshadow Primer Potion, a Honey Lip Plumper, Honey Scented Sparkling Body Powder, and Honey-Scented All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. What can I say, I want all these products. I NEED all these products just because. I mean, look how pretty that packaging is.
One more set from Urban Decay I wouldn’t be mad at getting this the Little Vices set. I like all the shades and the tubes tying into the previous palettes. Super cute and only $25. They are minis of course.
Lastly from Urban Decay is the Honey Pot, Also super cute and I want it as well but not as much as the Vault. This set includes a Honey Eyeshadow Primer Potion, a Honey-Scented All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray, a limited-edition 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Amber and an exclusive 6-shade Mini Honey Eyeshadow Palette which aren’t repeats from the larger palette. I think this will be a great gift for someone who already has the Naked Honey and LOVES it.
On to Tarte. I want to first say that Tarte has some lovely holiday sets this year and would make great gifts like the Winter Wonderglam Palette but those just aren’t for me. What I want to talk about from Tarte are a few value sets. First being the Tarteist Party of 3 Liner Trio. I think this is a lovely little set and a great way to try out their lines. Again these are minis.
- 3 tarteist™ double take eyeliners with a creamy gel pencil on one end & a longwearing liquid liner on the other
- shades include:
Next from Tarte is the cutest set of mini lip glosses! These are so pretty and not a bad price either. You are getting a fair amount of the product with these. This is what I though Lady Gaga’s makeup would look like to be honest.
And lastly from Tarte and the best in my opinion. This is a 9 pan cheek set, you could divide up as gifts or keep them all and be stocked up on blush. Tarte makes amazing blush and they will last you for ever. This really is a great value and collection of shades.
- rose gold stack
- snow kissed, prize, peppermint mocha
- gold stack:
- frosty, slay bells, shimmering
- gunmetal stack:
- NYE, decked out, mistletoe
Now for Fenty. They released a few holiday things this year but I am mostly interested in the Diamond Bomb because I adore the original and I love a pinky iridescent highlight. The Fenty Diamond Bomb II in Holo at Me retails for $38
Also from Fenty is this awesome little set of glosses retailing from $42.00 and includes Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Pretty Please, Fu$$Y, Confetti, Hot Chocolit, and Cheeky.
Nars went with a disco theme this year. I am not quite as into it as I have been in previous years but I like the look of the Inferno palette quite a bit. Nars makes some beautiful and underrated palettes in my opinion.
They of course launched a cheek palette.
Natasha Denona released the Metropolis Palette which I think as a really cool color story and I find personally very inspiring. It’s kind of ugly yet pretty. I really dig all those grungy shades.
And lastly from Natasha and for today’s edition of Lust or Bust is the mini Gold Palette. Umm, yes please. Those are my kind of colors all the way. Do want.
