New Release & Review: L’Oréal x Elie Saab Collaboration

Loreal Paris x Elie Saab Collaboration Review - Available at Chemist Warehouse

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

As soon as I saw these on Instagram, I knew that I had to have it! Elie Saab has taken their first foray into beauty through a collaboration with L’Oréal. Fans of the super famous haute-couture designer will absolutely love the intricate details and pretty colour schemes – best of all, it’s affordable too! Called the ‘Power of Grace‘, this collection includes three lipglosses, four lipsticks and a mascara, as well as a nine-pan eyeshadow palette which I haven’t seen in Australia yet (so can’t confirm if it was released here).

All of these feature the brand’s signature beige rose and gold colour scheme, as well as small details inspired by the intricate beading of his garments. It’s totally on-brand with Elie Saab’s signature feminine style and takes a versatile, wearable approach so all of these daily products transition well from day to night.

If you’re keen to get your hands on these, then head over to Chemist Warehouse – online or in-stores. This collection is limited edition though and it’s been incredibly popular, so I would recommend jumping onto it pretty quickly.

Before that though, let’s get into this review – swatches and all!

I’m clearly a sucker for pretty, pink packaging so when Bobbi Brown Cosmetics announced their new Glowing Pink Collection – I was all over it. Inspired by their iconic highlighter (the Pink Glow), this collection features both re-packaged and new products in limited edition packaging. It’s perfect for collectors or people like me, who have never used Pink Glow before but can’t find a better excuse to do so than a pink compact! (haha)

Read on for product information, pricing and also some links on where you can get your hands on these. Leave a comment below if you end up picking something up, but make sure to do it ASAP because things are selling out already!

New Release: Fig Collection (I’m From)

I'm From Fig Boosting Essence Cleansing Balm and Scrub Mask Review

When it comes to skincare, using fruit as the key ingredient isn’t anything new – especially within kbeauty. Sometimes it’s more to do with the scent but, most of the time, it has a lot to do with that fruits’ natural chemicals and benefits. A great example, and the most well known, would be with citrus and Vitamin C. In the end, all fruits are different and you can find a plethora of different skin concerns that can be treated with these formulations.

This new release from I’m From uses Fig, which I’ve never actually eaten before let alone seen in skincare. Because of this, I went into testing without any specific expectations but I was pleasantly surprised! The collection includes the Fig Boosting Essence, Fig Cleansing Balm and the Fig Scrub Mask. It’s available on the Wishtrend website with prices ranging from USD$30-$35.

Since these are a new release, I’ve only used them for about a week or two so the below are mostly my initial thoughts on the products. However, I definitely have my favourites already! At the moment, this range is on sale for an introductory 10% off (limited time only), as well as my code for a special discount: STELLA15 (until May 31st CST)

If you’d like to pick up any of these or explore the I’m From brand, hop on over to the Wishtrend website. Before that though – lets check out the new Fig Collection!

New Release: Brow Kits (Full Brow)

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I love Full Brow products and actually use their stuff on a daily basis. I recommend them all the time and have actually turned a few people onto the brand too – because who doesn’t love having great brows for a great price?

I saw an announcement on Instagram just two days ago that they will be launching some new Brow Kits – which are perfectly curated sets that all target different brow looks and preferences! These are a permanent addition to their range but, of course, it’s coming just in time for Christmas and I really think these would be a great gift.

If you’d like to read more of my thoughts on some individual products from the brand, then check out Full Brow on my blog but – otherwise – I’m going to jump right into talking about these kits!

Let’s get into it!

New Release: AKOCO and their Flawless Sets

Akoco Kbeauty Flawless Set Review

This product was sent to me for review purposes. Please note that affiliate links are used.

The kbeauty industry is massive and it seems like every day that a new innovation in skincare is being launched, so it can be really hard to keep up. The great thing is that there are experts out there and they have put their time and effort into curating only the best of the best for you. The relatively new online store AKOCO has just launched with their boxed sets and – seriously – they are so well done. At this point in time, they have also released a number of different sets to target different skin concerns but the original is the Flawless Set.

To celebrate their launch, they sent me their Flawless Set and you would have seen me posting about this on Instagram – I just love the products that they’ve included in here. I only just noticed that I hadn’t written up an unboxing though (and this post is a good three months late for which I am so sorry). I was originally holding out to try everything first but realised that that’s going to take much too long so I’ll be sharing with you this anyway!

Although the Flawless Set is now out of stock, they do have their new Flawless Flaw-less set in stock (which targets acne prone skin) or, of course, you can always shop their products individually.

So – let’s get into it!

New Release: Heavy Metal Glitter Gels (Urban Decay)

UD Heavy Metal Glitter Gel Mecca

This is going to be a quick one, but I really wanted to talk about the new Urban Decay release – in particular, the Heavy Metal Glitter Gels. I had previously tested this out at Meccaland (on my face) and also recently got a sample pot to test it out on my eyes and the formula of this has honestly exceeded all expectations that I have of a glitter gel!

When I recently went to Meccaland though (the beauty festival hosted by Mecca here in Australia), I finally had the excuse to smear this all over my cheekbones! I fell so in love with it that I just had to then try it on my eyes and I have to say that this formula is a step above all typical 90s glitter gels – seriously.

So – read on!

Review: Aladdin Collection (MAC Cosmetics)

MAC Cosmetics Australia Aladdin Collaboration Beauty Review

MAC Cosmetics has a talent for consistently killing me with every limited edition release – and their recent collaboration with Disney for the new Aladdin movie is no different! This post is actually a bit late because I’ve been so busy lately and not had time to write as often, but that’s given me the chance to really test out these products and gather my thoughts about it.

For this release, I was really lucky to have been invited to the pre-release event (which is why you would have seen me talk about these before they actually launched in Australia) – aside from testing out and playing with the products, we also got to watch a demonstration from their make up artist, which has really given me some good insight into the vision for this Aladdin collection.

This is a limited edition collection that was released one week ahead of the Aladdin movie (which came to cinemas May 23 and is so good, by the way). This collection is centred around Princess Jasmine and “features smoky metallic and desert shades that reflect Jasmine’s strong-willed beauty,” as well as some beautiful Agrabah inspired packaging.

Mac Cosmetics gifted me with the eyeshadow palette and one of the lip glasses to try out – which is actually good because it’s been a long time since I used a pressed shadow from their brand, and I have never used their lip glasses before either. Trying them out was definitely a whole new world for me (haha – okay, I’ll stop).

Now, let’s get into this review!

New Release: A-Clear Soothing Line (Neogen)

Neogen Dermalogy A Clear Soothing Collection Review Kbeauty

This product was sent to me for review purposes.

Acne and break outs aren’t an issue for everyone (those lucky ducks) but I have personally never met someone who would say no to clear skin. I used to get quite a handful of pimples around high school time but never had acne or problem skin, so to speak. However, my skin type has been changing a lot lately, possibly due to aging as well as a very hectic lifestyle – so I have been trying out a bunch of different anti-acne products.

Some have worked really well for me, some not at all and others were too strong.

It was at this time that Neogen released their new A-Clear Soothing Line and I couldn’t have been more excited to try it out. Their products have been really good for my skin and I had very high expectations for these new releases. Here, I have almost their full A-Clear Soothing collection:

I am missing their A-Clear Aid Soothing Spot Patch, but I will likely purchase them myself soon – once I run out of the ones I am currently working through. For what I do have, I haven’t managed to try out everything extensively yet but will be giving you a good overview of their new releases, as well as giving you my personal thoughts and impressions when I can!

Let’s get into this!

New Release: Blue Blood Collection (Jeffree Star Cosmetics)

Jeffree Star Blue Blood New Release Blackswallow

When ever there’s a new release with Jeffree Star Cosmetics, it seems like the whole world stops to look – and it was no different with this recent launch of the Blue Blood Collection (including the super covetable palette, which is the sister product to his cult favourite Blood Sugar Palette). This collection dropped a couple of days ago and – as expected – the brand is not only right on trend with the beauty community, but also daring enough to push the boundaries of convention.

They did it once with the bold, red themed Blood Sugar and they are doing it again with the (almost) all blue Blue Blood.

Everything is now available on the Jeffree Star website or at Black Swallow. If you’re Australian based, I highly recommend buying from them as they are official stockists and have a ridiculously fast shipping service for us too (free for orders over AUD$100 and with 10% off for all students). Now let’s look over everything!
