Something new you're wanting to try?

Hey there, my lovely guys and gals!


With the move into the Spring and the New Year, that means tons of brands and lines are launching out new promos and products! I love checking in and seeing all the new things featured on the Sephora front page.


What I wanted to know is, what are you looking to possibly try or consider trying? It doesn't necessarily have to be a new item, maybe something you've had your eye on for a while or something you're tentative on but decided to take the plunge!


I for one have been eyeballing the Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush!

Too Faced - Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush


I'm not even going to deny it, I'm a sucker for pretty and unique packaging and design and this blush just takes the cake! It's so cute and sweet, it reminds me of candy and chocolate boxes around Valentine's Day. Though I'm at no shortage of blushes, this one is just so, so, so eye catching, I can see it on my vanity now!


I'll probably go into my local Sephora today and swatch it and check it out in person before making any decisions, but again, to all those in the Sephora and Beauty Talk world, what are you wanting to try?

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

If I write down everything the site might crash! Here are a few things:

Perricone MD Blue Plasma serum

anything from the SK-II line

Ciate sequin nails kit

YSL Touche Eclat OR Dolce and Gabbana luminous foundation (though I shouldn't since I have oily skin)

Tarte Inner rim eye brightener (looking for a cheaper alternative though that has more product, think I might check out Ben Nye)

Smashbox or NARS BB cream

Tom Ford cream eyeshadows

Nails Inc Bling it on kit

sephora + Pantone Universe Cashmere brush set



Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Try Stila's Kajal liner in Apricot, it's a $1 less than the Tarte liner and isn't a thin pencil so you do get more product.


It's super creamy and goes on so smoothly! I use the black for my inner rim and it lasts so long!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

I really want to try Glam Glow. I just don't want to pay $69 before knowing how it truly works. lol If I manage to snag a sample I will post a review. Fingers crossed!!!

Also, Lip Tar. I'm on the fence about this one but it is something i would like to try.

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

You already know my thoughts on both from your threads! Smiley Very Happy


I saw when you snag up either (be it samples or actual product), share with us either way! I can't wait to hear back on this one from you!


Which shade (or shades Smiley Tongue) of Lip Tar are you going to pick up?

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Thank you for posting! I wanted one SO badly but realized.. they won't show up on me! Smiley Sad plus side is that you saved me $29 lol 


On to the next search for a cute blush! 

Luv&Lipgloss, Diana

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

That's $29 you can spend on other things now! Smiley Tongue

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Ohh fun topic!


I'm pretty sure I 'awwed' outloud when I saw that brush online. I'm a sucker for cute packaging, especially things that are related to Valentine's Day. I really like hearts.
I feel like this blush would look great layered with another.


I personally really want to try:


Too Faced No Makeup Makeup

Too Faced - The Secret To No Makeup Makeup



Kat Von D Everlasting Blush

Kat Von D - Everlasting Blush


Urban Decay Good Karma Brush (it's made completely out of soda bottles and aluminum cans)

Urban Decay - Good Karma Optical Blurring Brush

Whimsically yours,

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Ooo that paletted from TF looks nice! I always love seeing their palettes! Plus their packaging and color choices always speak to my inner girly girl!


The Good Karma brush is amazing! Cargo and Tarte had put their own versions out a while back and I love that style.


My friend's an artist for UD and said that it's best to use regular rubbing alcohol to clean their brushes as it's a synthetic fiber as brush cleaner has detergents and factors that can break down the glue that holds the bristles in place.

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Hmm was looking around on the oil post and a user mentioned that Boscia's got a new oil now.  I haven't used a tsubaki oil before so I have to admit to a bit of curiosity on that bit.  Might have to grab a bottle of that to try in my next haul!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Be sure to share a review/follow up if you do!


I'm wondering how they're planning to incorporate a tsubaki oil into all the others on the market, especially because tsubaki oils are normally used in hair care. It'll be interesting to see if they gear it more toward body/hair or more for face/skin.

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Agreed, after doing some research it seems to be more of a keratin thing (hair like you were mentioning and nails),  might be a while until I buy though, still working through some old stuff I want to use before getting a new product (and gonna try out the marula oil)!  From what I see though, it's also a fantastic antioxidant, used in history to keep  swords and whatnot from rusting, proof enough it's something to look out for.  


Regardless, I'm inclined to trust Boscia to put out a decent product, it kind of seems like a summer oil from what I'm gathering about the texture, so it might be seaberry's competition! Smiley Tongue

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

I can't wait for the launch!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

It is better than Seaberry. I updated the facial oil comparison/break down. Feel free to add your thought after/if you tried it. =D


ps. It's so hard to compare oil because they all feel...oily. Now I've got random patches of very moisturized skin on my face/hand/arm. lol.

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Happy day! After visiting two Sephora and one Ulta with none of them carrying the Too Faced blush, the third Sephora I visited had it in stock!!! I'm now the proud owner of the Sweethearts Perfect Flush blush! I applied it with my Too Faced Retractable Kabuki Brush and found that this actually helps apply more pigment to the application. 


The baked, shimmer aspect is gorgeous in the sunlight and it applies so smoothly! I'm definitely going to be using this blush more and more!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Wow!  First off, you're totally gorgeous!  Next, the blush looks so pretty and shows up much better than I hoped!  Definitely going on my wishlist for Feb!  Thanks so much for posting photos Smiley Happy Smiley Happy Smiley Happy

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

Aww, thankers, Drrragon! Smiley Very Happy


I just snapped a pic in natural/daylight that I'm going to add to the post too!

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

@lylysa-What color is your lipstick in this photo? Since I don't think the blush will show up on me, at least I can get some lipstick?

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

yeah this thread just makes you want to BUY stuff! Smiley Happy

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

It does! Well, honestly, all the threads pretty much make me want to run out and buy things... Smiley Tongue

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

It's Sparkling Pink by Laura Mercier, it's my absolutely favorite shade for whenever I want a more natural/subtle lip.


I topped it off with Lorac's Multiplex 3D gloss in Ulta Glam, it's a shade that's exclusive to Ulta stores, but the shade 3D works just as well. Ulta Glam has a soft red undertone with brown, rose, and a hint of blue shimmer, which 3D is a sheer nude gloss with brown, gold, and rise shimmer.

Re: Something new you're wanting to try?

It's pretty! I'll have to check it out myself Smiley Happy
