This LIne Promises A Full Face In 7 Minutes - New Launches From The Lip Bar

@bufferingbetty

Fast Beat: Look like you took a hour but you did it on the train.

In the age of complicated makeup application, The Lip Bar is giving you back your time. No overly complicated brow routines, no 8 steps to complexion. None of that exists in the launch of their new products that will give you a put together look for where ever you deem makeup necessary.

Meet Fast Face

 
 

We’re all reeling from the release of their Skin Serum Foundation in 26 shades!

 
 

Just a glance at the shade range, and you can see that WOC with deeper skin tones were at the center of this launch.

 
 

Broken down into 6 shade families starting at 1 O’clock t0 6 O’clock.

Founder, Melissa Butler, breaks down the shade families to help you more easily identify your shade. She explained the families by comparing them to a celebrity who would fit the range. She didn’t say a celeb for the lightest group of shades but she said the were very fair. The 4 0’clock shade range correlates to her skin tone, too. Here is the rest of the list.

2:00 Stay Ready - J. Lo

3:00 Boss- Lauren London

4:00 Stuntin’ - Melissa Butler

5:00 Vogue - Kelly Rowland

6:00 Squad Goals - Lupita

The packaging is designed to make application mess proof. The brush head dispenser means you don’t have to add extra tools into the mix. Just pump the bottom and the serum foundation flows through the bristles.

This finish tho!

A breathable, skin like glow for a healthy looking finish.

 
 

Hygenic? Yes, they thought of that, too!

Twist the base to pop off the cap and you’ll be able to clean the brush without compromising the integrity of the foundation.

There is a downside to a brush being built in. You cannot return the foudation. It’s a matter of cleanliness. “The brush has been used.” In short, this means, they would absolutley not be able to resell the foudation. Picking your shade online is tricky, even with The Lip Bar’s shade finder. However, of course, they’ve got a solution! You can get three free samples to find your shade. Just pay for shipping!

 
 

Why ‘Fast Face?’

 
 

Foudantion. Face Palette (with face powder, blush, contour, + highlighter). Eyeliner. Mascara. Poppin’ Lip. That’s the summary to the Fast Face. It all can fit in a small pouch and you’ll look like you used all of the Target beauty section to acheive your look.

Let’s be real:

Have you seen a makeup tutorial lately. On IG or Youtube or even on Sephora’s product videos? Why is it taking 8.4 million steps to get a “natural, everyday, casual, no-makeup makeup” look??

Complex riddles with twists and turns leaving viewers with unanswered questions. If you were just starting out with makeup, you’d be tricked into thinking you’ll need so many proucts for the simplist look.

The Lip Bar pushed away all of the fluff and has streamlined beauty for real life. For people who need to be ready to go like right now.

While riding a train, Melissa Butler came across a woman who literally needed her new launches. That’s who The Lip Bar is designing for. She shared on her IG stories a woman riding the train while doing her makeup. The Skin Serum Foundation would have shaved her from having makeup hands.

Makeup is easy again.

 
 

And you’re ready for any where your day is taking you

Minute Finish Face Palette!

Hello! Got get ‘em!

Naomi Campbell Made A Makeup Tutorial And Now Every Internet Beauty Guru Has Some Explaining To Do

@bufferingbetty

First Step: Be Naomi Campbell

Nothing speaks to the power of Youtube like the trend of celebrities creating their own lifestyle vlog channels. J.Lo, Adrienne Bailon, Shay Mitchell, and, now, Naomi Campbell. This supermodel gave us selfie models the deets to her quick makeup routine and -just, wow. Thank you.

First off, Ms. Campbell starts the video with her immaculate bare skin -the woman has no need for makeup. Makeup needs Naomi. After years of getting her makeup done by the industry’s best, of course Naomi has picked up a few tricks along the way.

“My quick 5 minutes -er, no.. my quick few minutes makeup”

With her skin looking like hydration is thristy, she begins with some concealer to highlight her T-zone.

 
NARS     Soft Matte Complete Concealer

NARS

“Highlighting the T-zone is always important”

“I love using these [triangles]. They lay flat and dont apply too much [product].”

Throw out your beauty blender, folks, and get you a big pack of wedges!

 
FantaSea    Latex Free Foam Wedges

Naomi’s look was all about highlighting her bone structure and keeping the look as minmal as possible.

“i dont really where base on my forehead because I want to look like I dont really have anything on.”

For this look, instead of apply foundation all over the face, use a highlighting concealer on the center of your face and blend outward.

Pause. Can you believe she just has concealer in the center of her face??? The woman is just stunning.

Concealer. Contour. Blush. Boom. Naomi Campbell.

 
NARS   Contour Blush in Gienah

One of the biggest takeaways from this tut is that we all need to scrap how we’ve been applying blush. Naomi prefers “high blush.” Apply your blush to high part of you cheek rather than the apple.

“High blush not low blush. I dont like to apply blush on low cheeks. I think looks like clowny and takes away from the bone structure”

 
NARS   Blush in Geity

She blended the highlight and blush shade from the NARS cheek palette for highlight.

She finished the look with some brightening powder under her eyes.

And threw on the tinyest bit of purple eye shadow. She used the darkest shade from this palette and did a wash of color.

“Purple is my favorite color”

 
NARS   Quad Eyeshadow in Tropical Express

She shared that when she was younger, NARS Honolulu Honey was her favorite lipstick.

NARS   Satin Lipstick in Honolulu Honey

“After years of sitting in a chair for so many hours, when I do it, it has to be a minute thing.”

She skipped mascara entirely because her lash extensions were so beautiful and she said she doesn’t really wear mascara.

She likes a ‘pinky’ lip and blended these two glosses together.

There were a few moments where our hearts dropped. To remove the excess powder, Naomi Campbell kept blowing on her brushes!

What is happening!

 
 

But don’t you dare come for Naomi.

Everyone was just honored to be here, honestly.

Facts. We’ve been played. Stop using 600 products to get the same results as Naomi’s look.

^^^AGREE^^^
Naomi doesn’t need a lot of anything.

KKW Body Foundation Changed This Woman's Life And Shut Down Haters On Twitter

@bufferingbetty

So many feels!

KKW Beauty released a body foundation and, as goes everything with the notorious Kardashian family, there was drama. Everyone had a strong opinion to share. But one influencer had a story about her mom that made Twitter take a seat and actually listen.

 
 

Katrina is a beauty blogger (@treeeenz) who wanted her followers to know exactly why the KKW Skin Perfecting Body Foundation deserved some love and support.

 
 

On Twitter, Katrina shared this photo of her mom’s legs. One leg has had the KKW Body foundation applied to it while the other leg is red and has discoloration.

 
D-CxRsUU4AAnpNp.jpg
 

“this is why i bought my mom the @kkwbeauty body foundation. with my mom’s sickness, she developed a skin condition and she’s been so embarrassed to even wear shorts or dresses out in public. she got so extremely happy after i applied the body foundation and i’m so emotional rn” @treeeenz

“this is why i was getting so angry about everyone who was saying this was a stupid product. please be mindful that not everyone has perfect skin/legs/etc. i can’t wait to take my mom out this summer and her not being self conscious about her illness”

She got many replies to her tweet supporting her. Some even shared their own insecurities.

Others, not so much.

Capturem.PNG

I could see this having some truth. But I wonder if this person has an issue with the whole beauty industry?

I think this is a great concept. KKW Beauty is hardly the first brand to release body foundation. I remember as a teen when my mom came home with a body foundation to cover her vericose veins. I didn’t think she needed it but that’s not for me to decide.

While I see the point about “promoting unrealistic standards of perfection” from the whole beauty industry, not just the Kardashians, I think a lot of people are missing a point. Choice + growth. Choose to wear whatever you want. My mom chose to wear makeup on her legs in the summer. And eventually, she got tired of applying foundation to her legs are learned to accept them. The process of covering up her legs, made her engaged with them more and I think that is how she got over that insecurity. I haven’t heard my mom talk about how her veins look in years. Hopefully, Katrina’s mom goes through that same growth. And even if she continues to cover her legs, it is her choice. Respect that.

here’s to Feeling pretty

These $8 Fenty Dupes Will Be Your Summer Staple!

Colourpop to the rescue!

Colourpop came through with their Lite Stix + Blush Stix collection just in time! Summer make up means fast application. Blink and the season is over. We’ve got beaches to catch! We don’t want to spend a single extra minute worrying about perfect blending when their are weekend carnivals with our names all over them. What caught my eye, was the fact that this new Colourpop release included colors that looked like some of my favorite Fenty Beauty Shimmer Stix shades! I found Colourpop matches for almost all of the Fenty Shimmer Stix. The only one left out was Blondie. We can’t deny, Fenty has a way with gold that other brands haven’t yet grasped; Long Live Trophy Wife!! Here are the matches I found!

The Only Kylie Skin Review You Need: Michelle Phan Came Back To Save Us From Ourselves

Does Kylie Skin meet Michelle Phan’s standards?

Like a gaurdian angel watching the mayham about Kylie Skin unfold, Michelle Phan swooped back on to youtube to give beauty lovers a protecting voice. She guest starred in a ‘first impressions’ type of video on beauty influencer, Promise Tamang’s Youtube channel, Dope2111, to test out Kylie’s new skincare line.

 
 

It started with the announcement of a walnut scrub. That was the moment the internet beauty world erupted and started side-eyeing the release of baby Jenner’s skincare line. We all could see the release of Kylie Skin coming. We could have even predicted the twitter + meme circus that would come with it; for there rarely is a moment involving the Kardashian-Jenner clan that is unaccompanied by a social media tornado. Love them or hate them, the reality TV family is everywhere and so are their products. The hype could temp you to give them a try.

The OBG: Original Beauty Guru

 
 

Anyone who was a teenager in 2007 has seen a Michelle Phan beauty tutorial on Youtube. She turned her hobby into a business and now she owns her own beauty line, Em Cosmetics, and beauty subscription service, Ipsy Beauty!

The 32 year-old team up with her sister-in-law / beauty influencer, Promise Tamang, to spill all the tea about Kylie Skin and

if the walnut scrub will be scratching up our faces.

 
 

Promise Tamang is an incredibly talented artist who can change her face into almost anything!

 
 

No, seriously! It took me a minute to figure out which face was actually hers while scrolling through her IG.

 
 

They put their skin on the line to test it out.

Not all heroines wear capes!

Promise purchased the collection herself for $125 which she and Michelle both deemed a “fair” or “average” price for a full skincare routine.

 
 

When you and your bestie plan DIY facials together:

Each peice was tested and given a review based on how each of their faces felt in the moment.

 
 

The Foaming Face Wash:

Michelle: “Doesn’t feel that nourishing. Actually feels pretty drying as I’m washing this off. At the end of the day, you don’t want to buy the packaging or buy the hype. You want to buy a product that’s gonna work for you.” She also thought it would be better with teenagers with more oily skin.

Promise: “Not a velvety foam. It takes off like 80% of the makeup. It’s good but it’s not going to replace any of the cleansers I’m using now.”

 
 

The reason you’re here!

 
 

The Walnut Face Scrub:

Michelle: “It’s very finely milled. It’s not as bad as I thought it was, actually. But would I buy this for myself, no. I just think (physical exfoliants are) a dated formula.”

Promise: “I just feel like it’s not safe so I wouldn’t recommend for people to use this. Walnut scrubs are just a ‘no’ for me.“

 
 

The Vanilla Milk Toner

Michelle: “I don’t like fragrance in my skincare. So far this is my favorite product.”

Promise: “This feels really nice on the skin.”

Both were glad to see the left over makeup removed from their faces after cleansing and exfoliating.

The Vitamin C Serum

Michelle: “It’s OK. It’s not bad. It’s not the worst thing in the world but it’s not the best thing in the world either.”

Promise: “It’s a tad bit sticky but it’s good.”

The Face Moisturizer

 
 

Michelle: “Love the packaging. A little comes out [of the pump]; I like that. I like it more than the serum. It’s definitely the strongest [of the collection]”

Promise: “it’s nice and thick. I think it’s good.”

The Eye Cream

Michelle: “If you have sensitive skin, for sure you’re going to feel [the minty-ness]. Not bad.”

Promise: “There is a light bit of minty-ness. I think it’s good. I like the eye cream. I would say it feels like a nice eye cream”

Overall Thoughts

Michelle: “Could be better. If this was the first time I was getting into skin care, [this collection] is not a bad entry way. I do feel like there are other products that are much cheaper that are more effective. But you have to do extra research … if you want something easy, this is a nice way” to get started with skincare.

Promise: “it’s not ‘wow, impressive.” I think the walnut scrub threw people off.”

 
 

There faces say: You’ll try it because it’s Kylie but you probably won’t make many repurchases.

 
 

Meanwhile, Kylie posted a “day in the life” vlog.

 
 

See their video on Promise’s channel!

Instagram’s Raver Grandma Gets A Makeup Collab + More of Summer '19s Brightest Releases

So these brands stepped their game up to put out some palettes + lippies that will jump off the screen and into your vanity.

Watch This Video If You’re Thinking Of Getting Lip Fillers

Huda Beauty Founder Says “Lip Filler Ruined My Lips.”

Scrolling through the discover page on Instagram has me convinced that the people getting cosmetic fillers in their face are getting younger and younger. Something that we saw mostly on middle aged female celebrities is now something that we see on folks in their 20s. Huda Kattan, the founder of one of the top selling cosmetics brands, Huda Beauty, shared on Instagram IGTV her story with lip fillers and how after 10 years of getting lip fillers, she never actually got what she was looking for.

Huda Kattan is was first known for her beauty blog and her Instagram full of beauty hack videos. Now, you know her self named cosmetics company.

In the IGTV video, the almost 36 year old opens up about the first time she got lip fillers injected in 2009 after doing little to no research of her own. She talks about how, at that time, fillers weren’t very popular but she thought that she “would look more attractive” after the injections.

The Emirati doctor in Dubai who was the first person to give Huda lip fillers gave her 4 lip injections. While her lips were bigger, Huda says they had “no shape.” Over the years, she’s had them fixed and refilled by some well known doctors.

But still, Huda told her viewers that,

“Lip filler is not bad but I did not get what I was looking for.”

The filler just made her lips plumper. What that means is that any fine lines she may have had would have been stretched out and less visible. What she was actually looking for was more height to her lips.. Something she says later in the video can be ‘fixed’ with makeup. She also gives her audience and tutorial on how she overdraws her top lip to make it appear larger.

 
huda-kattan.jpg
 

Over time, the filler started to move to be between her lips and her nose making her appear older and look ‘fake’ as if she had had a ton of work done.

After being advised by a doctor to remove the lip filler because, yes, the injections made her look older, Huda made the decision to have the filler in her top lip dissolved. Which is done by, yup, another type of lip injection.

 
Filler in top and bottom lip.png
 

Huda on the process of having her lip filler dissolved:

“I gave birth without epidural. I was super calm, I can take pain ….and let me tell you, (dissolving the lip filler) was painful.”

So after a decade of lip injections and the painful process of having them removed, Huda’s advice to those considering getting their lips altered:

“Mess around with makeup before you
mess around with a needle.”
