NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

Attention Rouge makeup lovers! Brand new, exclusive beauty products are coming to from some of your favorite brands including Dior, Marc Jacobs Beauty, NARS, Pat McGrath, and Too Faced and Rouge gets first access to these exclusive launches from 3/18 – 3/20. Exclusive products? Newness? Rouge preview?! We knew we needed to get our hands on these divine products to give you a first look. Read with caution because I was lucky enough to test each product and am sincerely obsessed and impressed with everything launching on Monday. Don't you worry, Beauty Insiders and VIBs, these products will be available to all Beauty Insider tiers starting Thursday, 3/21. Now onto the fun part… Swatching, product reviews, and way too many photos of my face 🙂 


Marc Jacobs Concealers 2.jpgMarc Jacobs Beauty Accomplice Concealer & Touch-Up Stick $32, C$38

A few of us tested the Accomplice concealer and are all impressed. First of all, the packaging is sleek, stylist, and magnetized, which gets me every time. Is it just me?! Accomplice comes in 17 shades and they do a good job at covering a range of skintones from light to deep. This is a medium coverage concealer but I have noticed it’s buildable and reliable for 12 hours of wear, which is great because I love full-coverage and want my concealer to stay put. I must also mention that this blends like a dream, isn’t the least bit cakey, and truly leaves you with a flawless finish. It is a concealer stick so it’s best to warm the formula with your finger and apply directly to your skin. @LexBT also tested this out because she is always searching for the next best under eye concealer. She’s Sicilian so has natural purples and blues under her eyes and tends to go one shade lighter for a brightening effect. With liquid concealers, she has a hard time building up coverage but with the Accomplice stick concealer she simply dabbed a little extra to her darker spots and was photo ready. If you’re looking for a new concealer and enjoy medium or full coverage @BrendaBT, Lex and I all recommend giving this new product a go. Check out the spoiler tab to see this in action.

Nars Orgams Open Products.jpg

NARS Orgasm Blush Jumbo $40, C$52 and Orgasm Oil-Infused Lip Tint $26, C$34 (both are limited edition and exclusive)

Can I admit something to you all? I hadn’t tried NARS Orgasm until testing out this product and WOW this really does live up to the hype! What took me so long? This cult-favorite blush is limited edition and comes in an oversized, gorgeous compact that’s a lovely, peachy color. I’m not one to wear shimmery blush but the glow I get from this doesn’t feel over-the-top, it just adds a touch of warm radiance that is simply beautiful when applied to the cheeks.


The Orgasm oil-infused lip tint is also limited edition and comes in stunning packaging, similar to the blush. My lips are always dry and feel incredibly moisturized while wearing this. I also love the MLBB (my lips but better) shade I’m left with from the subtly tinted formula. While this is definitely glossy, it isn’t the least bit sticky so overall very pretty and extremely comfortable.

I'm wearing both the blush and lip tint in the photo above. If you want to feel like a naturally glowy goddess with perfectly moisturized, tinted lips I highly suggest you purchase NARS Orgasm blush and lip tint immediately.

Pat McGrath Eye Ecstasy Kit (Limited Edition) $48 ($75 value) C$65 (C$103 value)


Mother and her genius team were not messing around when they created this set. If you want to learn more about the (appropriately named) Eye Ecstasy Lab, read on. If you haven’t tried anything from the brand before, this is a great opportunity to test the waters. Warning: every item in this set wowed me so read with caution.


PMG Palette Swatches.jpg

Let’s start with the Eye Ecstasy Palette. This palette is beautiful. The shades are easy to blend and you get a mix of every day and bold hues to work with. This palette is a dream for all you, whether you’re beach bumming it (Hello, Paradiso!), sightseeing all day or spending your evenings in fabulous cocktail dresses enjoying fancy dinners (Dark Matter, anyone?). I created a bronzy look, smoked out my top lash line with Dark Matter, no liner needed, and smudged the beautiful metallic purple shade, Amnesia, on my lower lash line. The lighter metallics, After Glow and Liquid Sun, can be used for a halo eye or in your inner-corners for a pop of light. If you want to take your glam eye look to the next level, like me, this is where the Crystalline Prismatic Pigment comes in handy. 


OMG. The Crystalline Prismatic Pigment in Angel Dust is simply incredible. I applied this loose pigment in true Pat McGrath fashion, dipping my finger into the pigment and directly applying to my lid and inner-corners. The crushed pearl pigments melt onto the skin and give a mesmerizingly shimmery effect. I must also note that I was able to glide this onto my eyes with ZERO fallout. For 12 hours of wear. Let me tell you, I left absolutely divalicious all day long! Now let’s move into my favorite step… Mascara!!


Many of you are already aware that FetishEyes Mascara is outstanding. This super-black mascara in shade “Xtreme Black” opened up my eyes in one, miraculous swipe. I go hard when it comes to mascara application and have long lashes so always have a ton of black specks on my lids when I’m done. Because this saturated my lashes so efficiently, I barely had any transfer to my lids—plus, my lashes were HUGE in a few swipes. This works and it works fast.


If you can’t tell, the Eye Ecstasy Lab is a no-brainer, in my opinion. I just wish I could give Mother a hug for creating such stunning, well-formulated products.


Too Faced Peach Puff Lip Products.jpg

Too Faced Peach Puff Lip Color (Exclusive) $19, C$25


Who’s ready for some Peaches and Cream Newness?! Too Faced is back with more peachy goodness and I’m a big fan… Shocking, I know! The new, exclusive peach puff lip color is matte, lasts for hours (8 to be precise!), and the formula doesn’t feather or bleed. The packaging is sleek and the formula twists into a pillowy applicator. Given the larger size of the applicator, I was a bit nervous I would get this all over my face but it’s very easy to apply and you’re left with a very gorgeous lip look. I read this is supposed to give a “softly bitten” look and definitely agree! Once the lipstick is on, you can’t feel it but you can smell that delicious, peachy aroma many of us know and love. The smell wears off after a while but it definitely smells great while you apply the product.

Above I’m wearing a shade called Day Drinking, which brings me to the final reason I love these lippies. As you may have assumed, Too Faced had a lot of fun while naming these shades. Some of my favorites are Boy Bye!, Brunchin’, Sippin Tea, and Straight Fire. I will be definitely be adding a few of the 12 shades to my lip collection!

Here are some swatches:

Diorshow Pump’N’Volume HD Mascara (Exclusive) $29.50 C$37

Who doesn’t love Dior mascara? If you were around in 2017 when we sent community members the newly-launched Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Mascara, you may remember their mind-blown, life-changed, overwhelmingly positive reaction… People are WOWED by this mascara. So many community members picked up the mascara due to these raving reviews and also fell in love with the wonder product. I adore the original Pump’N’Volume so you can imagine my delight after learning Dior was updating their formula and packaging to take Pump’N’Volume to a new level of excellence. The verdict? I am entirely infatuated with this mascara and the instant XXL volume lash-multiplying effect. The new formula, which now includes cotton nectar to protect and nourish your lashes, glides on smoothly to instantly coat your lashes in a few quick swipes with the same precise, lash-combing wand we know and love. The tube is still squeezable (don’t you worry!) but now allows for a bit more squeeze and the top of the tube is smaller than the original, removing more formula from the wand when you remove it from the tube. The packaging changes allow for volume control and the formula update helps the mascara glide onto your lashes for lightweight, defined lashes.

Here’s a picture of the product in action. I’m wearing two coats on the left and no mascara on the right. I have a feeling that this will become an automatic holy grail for many of you, like the original formula. This is certainly going to be one of my new favorites.


Reminder! All of these will be available to Rouge on and the App starting Monday, 3/18, and then all beauty Insiders can pick these up starting Thursday, 3/21. If you want to treat yourself or want to make someone’s day be sure to pick some of these new items up!


Now I’m curious… Which of these products are you most intrigued by? Please let us know if you have questions!

Re: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

Psst: your local PMG-stocked Sephora store might have the Eye Ecstacy kit in stock—in the back, held for Rouge members during our early access period. Mine also had a tester eye kit out at one of the makeover tables, along with all the other exclusive launch items! I didn’t even ask anyone about it in the store. An employee asked if I needed help; I said I was trying to avoid the entire PMG section because Pat already has enough of my money; employee asked if I was Rouge, then asked if I’d seen the eye kit yet. 🙂 So if you can, go play with this stuff in person! 


Earlier in this thread, I said I’d buy the Dior mascara. I didn’t. Instead, I could not leave the store without that eye kit. And that was after a Sephora employee and I played with just the Angel Dust loose pigment for a few minutes. (She hadn’t tried it either yet.) Now that I’ve swatched the whole palette at home, I’m gonna call this a fantastic travel set. I love the small size of this palette, and that it’s not the MTHRSHP style case (or as I like to call it, a drunk Venus flytrap). The 3 metallics and the 1 shimmer swatched like a dream with a dry shader brush. So did one of the mattes, Paradiso. As for Dark Matter, well... if you already have a Dark Star eye kit, then you already know how Dark Matter behaves. Personally, I like that black shadow: it’s buildable to a very deep black, but also very easy to sheer out. Dark Matter topped with Angel Dust creates a very sexy smoky sparkly look. 


“How small is the palette?” Here’s a comparison. Oh, and the pot of Angel Dust is wee but mighty!

Super happy that I was able to grab this in-store! Thanks again for the heads-up, @KatieBT ! 

Re: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

So glad you got it, @WinglessOne!

Re: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

Thanks @curlychiquita !

Re: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

@WinglessOne, i wish i can give you a real big hug.  Thank you for the review on PMG set.  I ordered it.  Now that i'm seeing your picture, can i just say 1 time "why so small"?  lol 😉 In fairness though, i'm more worrying about having dupes than the size.  How often i'm hitting pan of anything? 😉 I also probably have tons of dupes already but that didnt stop me.  At this point, i just have to admit that anything with PMG stamp on it i probably will hoard.  Cant wait for it to get to me end of the week 😉

Re: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

Aw, thanks @blackkitty2014 ! Think of it as “sure, I probably have dupes—but are they in such a travel friendly format?” 😄 That’s my rationalization and I’m stickin’ with it. 🙂 


I’ve traveled with my Bronze Temptation palette a couple of times now; last time, the case annoyed me so much, I cracked the spine of the larger flap hard so it stays wide open now. The case isn’t as pretty now (on the inside, you can see where the cardboard’s torn) and I’m even more determined now to pull the whole case apart so I can move those pans to a more functional—yet still travel friendly—case. I love the overall aesthetic of the MTHRSHP case, but the little Eye Ecstasy case is much more functional. See, there’s another reason it’s good to have this little palette! 🙂 Hope you enjoy yours! 

Re: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

@WinglessOne The Michigan Avenue location? I went there yesterday to see if Biba is out yet - it's not - and I purposely ignored the PMG section as well. Glad to hear that you love it!

Re: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

@tastelikewater  Yep, Michigan Ave. They have all the new products KatieBT reviewed for us. 🙂 I didn’t look at the Natasha Denona section at all, surprisingly; I was trying to focus on just walking straight to the skincare area for YTTP stuff 😄 —you know, kinda like how you march into a Target thinking “okay I’m only getting THESE 2 OR 3 THINGS and then I’m outta here,” and you end up with 50 things. Yeah... 

I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @Wingl...

I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @WinglessOne thanks so much for the comparison! I ordered 2, cause I know that the due to the size & quality, it will be my go-to travel palette. 😍😍😍😍

Re: I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @Wingl...

@sonnydee  You’ll love it—er, them! 🙂 Before seeing the kit in-store, I’d almost talked myself out of buying it because I probably have some non-PMG dupe shades and there’s no duochrome in the palette and do I reeeeally need that loose pigment, etc. But I’m glad I changed my mind! 


I heard a couple folks complain about the small sizes of everything in this kit. I don’t quite understand what they expected for $48—a low-for-Pat-McGrath price on an eye kit. 😄 Besides, I love minis for travel. Besides this palette, my favorite small sized beauty item is the adorably tiny Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush powder from a recent promo. I did take a photo of that against the Angel Dust pot from this eye kit:

Re: I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @Wingl...

What are you using to apply the CT powder?

Re: I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @Wingl...

@Jnillz  I haven’t used the mini compact yet because I already have a full sized compact. 🙂 I got the mini specifically for travel. But even with the full size, I use an eyeshadow brush to pat or roll-pat this powder under my eyes. I typically use a Chikuhodo Z-5 or PS-4 eyeshadow brush, or a MAKE UP FOR EVER 242 Large Blender Brush The MUFE brush is good for a roll-pat application. Any of those are perfect fits for the mini: 


L-R: Chikuhodo Z-5, Chikuhodo PS-4, MUFE 242L-R: Chikuhodo Z-5, Chikuhodo PS-4, MUFE 242#


A mini beauty blender or other small sponge would also work well with the mini CT powder. 

Re: I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @Wingl...

Thanks for the tips and recommendation. I have this mini as well but haven't used it yet because I was unsure of what to use because of the size.

Re: I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @Wingl...

@WinglessOne Oh no I love minis, this isn't helping 😂 Thanks for the size comparisons btw!

Re: I wish I could play with this & new Pat's in store @Wingl...

You’re welcome @RNGesusPls ! C’mon, who wouldn’t want a mini PMG palette and mini pot of super sparkly pigment to play with? 🙂 I haven’t mentioned the mascara because I already had a DS, but that’s also a plus for folks who missed the FetishEyes DS promo. 

RE: NEWNESS ALERT: Rouge Preview First Look Starting 3/18

I thought the Too Faced Lust palette was going to be available to rouge customers today. I keep checking and it says coming soon.
