What’s Your First Beauty Purchase of the New Year?

We’re Freaking Out over the Urban Decay X Kristen Leanne Collection! That and more in The Lipstick League, week of 1.1.18

Question of the Week: New year = new beauty! What’s going to be your first beauty purchase of the new year?

Answer: If we didn’t get it as a press sample, my answer would (hands down) be the Urban Decay X Kristen Leanne Collection. The colors, the pigment, the PACKAGING! I mean, c’mon: negative image jellyfish, pastel fields of flowers, molten swirls of purple glitter? I’m dying over here. A closer look (and swatches) coming soon…

But what I REALLY will be purchasing is a hairdryer. I blew the motor on mine by drying a canvas bag with the nozzle directly on the fabric. Don’t. Ever. Do. This. I’m guessing I limited the air flow and fried it? Alas, I may be taking the plunge and buying a Dyson Hairdryer. But if I chicken out (it’s $399, gulp.) I think the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i is the runner up.

Here’s what was up with the League last week.

Geniabeme – Take a look at how I organize all my makeup in The Original Scrapbox Workbox 3.0. This is for crafters but I used it to display all my beauty products!

My Beauty Bunny – found the makeup mirror of her dreams and it has changed her makeup game forever!

Phyrra – I’m sharing my Top 10 Beauty Favorites of 2017. See what made my short list!

Prime Beauty – Drugstore makeup has come a long way and many brands have superior products without the high price tag. I tried several products including the new Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage 24hour Foundation to achieve complexion perfection!

Realizing Beauty – The new Tarte Chrome Paint Shadow Pots are the most gloriously metallic shadows Christa has seen in a long time. If you love a high impact shine lid colour you do not want to miss this new launch from Tarte!

we heart this – is giving Pixi by Petra some well deserved lipstick love. Who else makes an $8 lip balm with THIS much pigment?

Beautygeeks – Suffering inexplicable dehydration and stubborn dry patches on your face? Could be you’re missing a cleansing step.

Blushing Noir – What better way to start off a new year than by entering a massive GIVEAWAY! Enter here to win makeup, skincare and more! Open internationally.

Geniabeme is Currently Craving: I have been eyeing the Dyson Hair Dryer for YEARS! I am still deciding if I want to splurge on it…

    Hubby got me an amazing red, (from a girl that helped him at Ulta lol) and totally nailed it… Lancôme Souvenir is amazing, and I was so impressed with the matte formula I went back for more and got another pretty pink. They are pricey but it’s my new fave. Um, and now I am seriously looking at that Dyson Hairdryer too… I didn’t even know it existed but now I feel like it could work miracles on my hair!!!! I WANT IT!

    Wow, those colors in that UD palette are so vivid and gorgeous!
    I have the T3 Featherweight Compact hair dryer. It’s better than some I’ve owned, but I’m still super curious about that Dyson hair dryer. If you splurge, let me know if you love it!

    My first beauty purchase of the new year is the new Laura Mercier Velour Extreme Matte lipstick. I ordered Control (brick red) and Fierce (medium chocolate). They haven’t arrived yet and I’m on pins and needles waiting for my Laura Mercier package to get here!
