Fenty Beauty By Rihanna



Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard of Rihanna's latest venture into beauty. Fenty Beauty by Rihanna is getting all the tons of buzz and clearing all the gondola's at Sephora locations. The collection is the hottest brand launch in quite some time and everyone is here for it. From an epic New York launch party to countless video tutorials from YouTubers, the collection is a must-try for any beauty lover.

Rihanna was inspired to create Fenty Beauty after years of experimenting with the best-of-the-best in beauty—and still seeing a void in the industry for products that performed across all skin types and tones. She launched a makeup line “so that women everywhere would be included,” focusing on a wide range of traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, creating formulas that work for all skin types, and pinpointing universal shades. The line features a whopping 91-skus, which includes 40 shades of Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation; 1 universal Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer; 30 magnetic Match StixSkinsticks, in both matte and shimmer finishes to contour, correct, conceal, highlight and blush; 6 cream-powder hybrid Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters for face and eyes; Invisimatte Blotting Powder and Paper; 1 universal lip gloss known as Gloss Bomb; and a variety of application tools.

Here's a closer look at the collection.




Holiday Gift Guide: 18 Gifts For The Beauty Lover


Looking for the perfect gift? Take a peek at Beauty in New York City's previous Gift Guides.


Anyone else wait to the last minute to do holiday shopping? The month is almost over and now it's go-time! As a beauty lover myself, I curated a list of the top 18 gifts I recommend for any beauty fan. You can choose from the prettiest palettes to the practical skincare set. Keep reading for gift ideas that will make your holiday gift giving a breeze!




I've been lusting after marble anything for months now. When I first laid eyes on this lush palette from Hourglass, I knew it'd be at the top of my Christmas list. This limited-edition palette contains flattering bronzer, blushes, and highlighter.






If you're looking for palette that gives option of sheer or high-impact finish, look no further than this holiday palette from NARS. You can use all the shades either wet or dry depending on your look. The palette is perfectly portable and features the bestselling dual-intensity formulas from NARS.



Lately I feel as though I see Mariah Carey everywhere and I'm not mad about it. The songstress really overdid herself on her recent M.A.C. collaboration. The packaging was over-the-top and stunning as only Mariah can do. Each item was packaged in a shimmery silver box with gold accents. My top pick from the collection is the limited edition Skinfinish featuring Mariah's face! It's already sold out online, but you may get lucky at other retailers or in M.A.C. locations.








This limited-edition palette has every eye shadow shade to take your look from day to night. It's encased in stunning gold packaging and organized in five columns, for a complete wardrobe of looks.



My new favorite shadow formula is easily from the Estée Edit. The brand continues to blow me away with exciting launch after launch and this eye and face palette collection is no different. The price point is incredibly low for the quality and size of makeup you receive. These two palettes feature shades that are formulated with tiny pearl particles for the most elegant, glistening sheen. The formulas are super blendable and the compacts are magnetic to easily click together! 


Sanrio, best known for pop icon Hello Kitty®, has teamed up with ColourPop, the Southern California-based global cosmetics company, to introduce their first collaboration – ColourPop x Hello Kitty. The limited edition collection is only available through February 1st and offers a full range of cosmetics for lips, eyes and face. The Hello Pretty Kit would make a perfect gift and won't break the bank.

Your Je Ne Sais Quoi Complexion Perfection Face Palette, $42

Developed with plastic surgeons, the experts in contouring and aesthetics, the Je Ne Sais Quoi™ Complexion Perfection palette includes four must-have, talc-free powder formulas that instantly enhance and brighten your features: new Sunshine in a Compact™ Matte Bronzer, new Perfect Lighting™ Luminizer, new Bye Bye Pores Blush™, and award-winning Bye Bye Pores Pressed™ Poreless Finish Airbrush Pressed Powder.








One of my favorite skincare products is the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence! No skincare routine is complete without this essence and now you have three limited edition bottles to choose from.



I've been wearing Flowerbomb for the last seven years and it remains one of my favorite scents to date. It's sweet, floral scent lasts all day and works on everyone. Gift this set to someone in need of a new scent!

It Cosmetics makes the softest brushes ever and this set is the perfect gift for any beauty lover. You don't have to worry about storage since the brush set comes with a matching glitter clutch.



theBalm Manizer Sisters, $26

Bronze. Blush. Highlight. You'll have everything you need for sculpted cheeks and endless highlighters.



Smith & Cult Lip Trio Gift Set, $60

Keep lips glossy with The Shining Lip Lacquer Trio by Smith & Cult. Enjoy shades Now Kith, The Lovers, and the Queen Is Dead along with a S&C Pochette.

Oribe Holiday Travel Essentials Collection, $98

Oribe's 'Holiday Travel Essentials Collection' is comprised of travel-friendly versions of the label's most coveted haircare products. The perfect gift for frequent jetsetters, they're housed in a sleek canvas bag that fits comfortably in your carry-on and conveniently doubles as a cosmetics case.
H20+ Beauty 6-pc. Must-Have Mini Favorites Set, $40

Satisfy all your skin care needs with this H20+ Beauty Must-Have Mini Favorites Set.




Keep your jewel tones shining bright. Gemstone color shampoo + conditioner protect and preserve your hue while Death Valley dry shampoo helps you go longer between washes.


Nail collection includes a stunning trio of nail lacquers -Stockholm Syndrome, Dark Like Me, Kundalini Hustle - a Limited Edition Nail File and a S&C Canvas Pockette, all exquisitely packaged in a Limited Edition Box.


A collection of Fresh skin care favorites that cleanse, mask, and moisturize—adorned in rich, gold-accented packaging. 



e.l.f. has launched a premium collection of brushes designed for precise application of products. These new brushes are baby soft and perfect for application and blending.

Happy Holidays!

The One Styling Tool I Can't Live Without



When it comes to hair styling, most women own at least one flat iron and blow dryer. As a curly girl who wears her hair natural often, I’m cautious of the types of heat stylers I use on my hair. It’s important for me to use styling tools that work for all hair types. Like most women, I like to change my hair up often and love a multi-use tool that can help curl, flip, straighten or add volume and body when needed. That’s where the Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Styling Iron comes in. It’s perfect for both professional use as well as at home with features such as temperature settings and a tangle-free swivel cord.

Not only does the Karmin G3 Salon Pro heat up fast, it also works extremely well at straightening my fine, frizzy curls. I normally have issues with blowouts only lasting 1-3 days, but I can leave my hair straight for up to 5 days with this tool. The best part is it comes with a 3 year warranty and has curved edges to create the most perfect curves or waves. You can find the Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Styling Iron at Karminhairtools.com or Amazon for $159.95.

Special thanks to Karmin Professional for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Case of the Mondays: 6 Beauty Products To Help Start The Week



Happy first Monday of August! My fiancée and I just got back from a weekend vacation in Chicago and now I'm preparing for my 30th birthday on August 10th. It's strange to say goodbye to my 20s, but I'm so ready for my 30s! I'm at a great place in my career, my wedding is next July, and we're planning to look at buying a home soon. I pray for a spare bedroom to store my makeup collection! Anyway, here's this week's Case of the Mondays.



Work your angles with this new all-in-one cheek palette! You can use wet or dry and shades can highlight, blush, and contour all skintones. Set features shades Soft Tulle, Damask with Gold Sheen, Peony, and Titian. 
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Moonchild, $40

::Insert unicorn emoji:: 
After the internet went wild for this rainbow highlighter, Anastasia Beverly Hills launched this unique palette with shades like "Blue Moon" and "Purple Horseshoe." Magically-Metallic highlighters make up the glow kit and create the perfect kaleidoscopic, shimmering effect. For a brightly amplified glow, apply with a damp makeup brush or sponge. While the kit may be sold out at the moment, Anastasia will be restocking mid-day on 8/1.


I blame Ole Henriksen for my lack of makeup wear lately and it's all due to this phenomenal three-step brightening system. I tested the kit back in June and I swear my skin has never looked better. The system has an unprecedented 25% vitamin C concentrate to deliver maximum radiance in as little as one use. You find improvements in dullness, uneven skintone, and fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C is my secret to healthy skin and Ole has known this secret for quite some time! Not only does Vitamin C help brighten complexion, it promotes firmer and more youthful-looking skin over time. Trust me, you need this in your skincare routine immediately. 


IT COSMETICS Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara, $24

In a sea of great mascaras, IT COSMETICS has really rose to the top. My lashes look longer, fuller, and thicker than they have in a long time. Proprietary Elastic Stretch Technology wraps each individual lash in a volume-boosting, lengthening and ultra-conditioning black cape of power. Thanks for the superhero powers, IT COSMETICS!


Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Treatment Oil, $5.99

Give me anything with Coconut Oil and I'm a happy lady. Suave just bottled up magic with their new rich Coconut Oil Infusion Treatment Oil. The formula goes to work instantly smoothing rough cuticles, taming flyaways, and delivering healthy, long-lasting shine.



The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder - Beam Team Hydrate + Glow, $42

Beam Team Hydrate + Glow is definitely my summer staple. It's a lightweight daily moisturizing lotion that illuminates and hydrates skin, leaving behind a sheer golden-beige hue or a sheer sun-loving bronze. Just apply and go!
