MAC Studio Fix Newness

I’ve seen two or three posts about the new adds to the MAC Studio Fix lineup – for those of you who love MAC, or the cult Studio Fix-ins…check out Britishbeautyblogger’s post, complete with swatches.  ReallyRee also shares swatches and comments.

The three new products are:

  1. MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Powder
  2. MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick
  3. MAC Studio Fix Fluid

These are supposed to be launching this month so keep your eyes open!

The Color Corrective Trend Continues…

I feel like there is a literal ONSLAUGHT of these products (not to mention posts, articles, newsletters etc…)  I’m not exactly complaining – I learned how to utilize such “correctors” early on as a performing athlete, and they WORK – but it is somewhat a sensory overload situation at this point!

In any case, if you are interested in further expanding your arsenal of perfectors, Sephora has a brilliant selection of items to choose from!  

Algenist has a new, concentrated liquid dropper formulation, which you can score a deluxe sample of at the moment…  (Dropper bottle foundations and serums are also (as no doubt you are aware) a major 2015 tail-end trend.)

Becca has four shades which appear more pigmented, and therefore much like the Kryolan or Ben Nye wheels I’d buy at Ricky’s New York back in my competitive dancing days…

Marc Jacobs has three swirled pop-up sticks, a fun take on the trend that I haven’t seen quite the likes of elsewhere.

Sephora has launched seven gel-serum correctors in a lip gloss style format, as has Urban Decay (who has five shades.)

YSL’s infamous Touch Eclat ALSO now comes in three corrective hues, which I have to say is pretty fabulous (the original is divine.)  

Smashbox is offering a pencil in four color-fixing shades, which is great for easy application.  In line with uber-ease, Cover-FX has their own new stick for brightening (LOVE brightening!), thought it does also come in five other colors! 

For those in love with powders, I adore the cute, loose pots from Besame, who have expanded one shade into five lovely tints…  Now if palettes are more your speed – having multiple colors in one place is often incredibly useful! – you might like Make Up Forever’s (which comes in five combinations), or the cheeky six-sampling from Benefit.

It’s rather a lot but I guess better to be able to choose from a larger variety depending on your own skin correcting needs!

Spring / Summer 2016 / 2017 Backstage – Maybelline Fall 2015

So Maybelline had some snazzy items behind the scenes recently…they are for Fall (Autumn / Winter) 2015, and will be launching in January 2016.

Not sure where else these press release images are, but thanks to BudgetBeautyBlog for those, and NouveauCheap for sharing various additional images.

Maybelline has also posted a variety of photos (on their Instagram page) in the past week of goodies used backstage at the Spring / Summer 2016 / 2017 New York Fashion Shows.

They offered a sneak peek of their contour and highlight palette, which we heard whisperings of already…

They also showed a bold swatch of Color Sensational Vivid Matte Lipstick…stunning, if you ask moi!

And the Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon…in three shades…(Loving that taupe-silver one on the end!) 

Then there’s the Rock Nudes Eyeshadow Palette…which will be joined by Smokes, Blushed Nudes, The Nudes, and The Brights… Oh my!

An finally…Maybelline Master Fix Setting+Perfecting Loose Powder, which is still a bit elusive…

So it is a LOT to look forward to…which makes me incredibly excited because we all know OTHER brands are coming out with fun jazz for the holidays and new seasons too!  Is it so terrible to look forward to new beauty launches MORE than certain holidays?!
