New Makeup Releases | Eyeing and Not Buying #3


Hi everyone and welcome back to The Coveted Lifestyle!

I hope you aren’t getting bored of these eyeing and not buying posts as I’m loving them. It’s so hard to keep up with all the new releases but

Now I’ve actually known about this for a while as I got told when I was at their birthday event but Revolution Makeup, formally Makeup Revolution, is coming out with Skincare. They are not messing around with all the new releases. I am actually really excited about this, as much as I have my favourite skincare products I do think I will be buying and testing some of these out. I’m really interested in the Serum, I can’t really read what it says it does on the box but I know that it’ll be good.

Now, this is something very very different. I love Lush for their bath bombs etc but I have never even considered Lush for makeup and they’ve just released a foundation. This foundation sounds so interesting as it’s actually a solid foundation, I wouldn’t say it’s like a stick foundation as it looks completely different. I like the concept behind it that it’s a buildable foundation that gives a natural look. The only thing that does put me off slightly is that with it being a solid foundation it would be so hard to try and store it (and the fact it’s £17 also puts me off) but I really want to get it to review.


This is the first Summer collection I’m going to mention in this post. As soon as I saw this on Trendmood I knew that these were a must. Colourpop always bring their game when it comes to their Summer Collections and I really love this one. Both palettes, Sol being the red one and Mar being the blue one, are stunning. Even though I already have about 100 warm toned palettes the Sol palette looks amazing, I’d even say that I’d rather get this palette than the new warm toned Morphe x Jaclyn Hill one I spoke about in my last eyeing and not buying post. I even want to buy the blue palette, I have really been loving blue eyeshadows so this palette would be right up my street. The best part is the only cost $12 each, they are so affordable!! I know for us UK people it can be expensive to get Colourpop but it’ll be worth it.



This is such a shocker for me. I am going to be honest, I won’t be buying the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette. I love Anastasia palettes but this one just isn’t for me. Some of the purples remind me of the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk palette and I didn’t want to buy that palette either. I’m just not into purple shadows enough to really want to spend £43 for a palette I will barely use. Don’t get me wrong it does look stunning and will probably be a very popular palette but I have to be truthful to myself and not just buy it because everyone else is.

The second summer collection of the post. This will come as no surprise that I’m not buying this as I really am not interested in Kylie Cosmetics now. I was talking to someone on Instagram about this palette and how boring it was, I think the packaging is amazing and it reminds me of Marvel Superheros but the inside is just dull. The whole collection is a dud for me as I feel it’s been done so many times before. I know I said that the Colourpop Sol palette is on my eyeing list and that does look similar but it’s way more affordable than this one and it excites me more. I feel Kylie really needs to come out with something very creative to be able to draw me back in.


Now for the final summer collection. Again, like Kylie Cosmetics, I am over Fenty Beauty. I actually barely ever wear the foundation I have, the one thing I do love is the Gloss Bomb and it will probably be one of the few things I like from Fenty.  The Summer Collection that’s just been announced and it sadly makes it to the not buying category. The only thing I really like about the eyeshadow palette is the blue but again I like the Colourpop palette so I don’t need it. I don’t need a new eyeliner or an eyeshadow primer so this collection is not needed for me.

Final not buying for this post. This is one that was a hard one for me to decide whether or not I wanted to try it but I think I’ve fully come to a decision. I actually only own one Huda Beauty product and at the minute I don’t think I’ll be adding another to my collection at the minute with her new Powder. I recently found a really good translucent powder from Maybelline so I don’t really need a new one, especially with it being £28. I think that’s what’s always put me off with Huda Beauty products is how expensive they are. I’m not 100% ruling it buying it in the furture but currently it is on my not buying list.

See you all in my next post
