If you’ve been under a rock the past couple of days (or stuck holiday shopping inside the mall) let me shine some light on you. According to Allure.com, Bobbi Brown is departing from her namesake brand in 2017. Bobbi will be turning over the creative reigns to Peter Lichtenthal, Global Brand President of both Bumble and Bumble and Bobbi Brown. That means consumers can still get their hands on Bobbi’s best and most iconic (um…shimmer brick anyone?) products; however, Bobbi will no longer be the creative force behind new products for the brand. Miss Brown (who’s actually Mrs. Steven Plofker) has not commented on what her next endeavor in the beauty biz will be, but stay tuned! I have a feeling that Bobbi is going to throw us for a loop in 2017!

It’s been more than a little while since I last posted any content. Honestly, I have been in kind of a rut with the highly saturated Beauty Blogger market. However, I still feel that I have a unique point of view that I want to continue to share so don’t worry this blog isn’t going anywhere! I hope it will only continue to grow and become better.
With the above being said; I want to clue my readers into where they can still purchase one of the most popular products on the Beautygram (Instagram) as I like to call it. Yesterday the talented Jeffree Star released his new Skin Frosts on his website and others that carry his products. Full transparency, these bad boys are SOLD OUT nearly everywhere, but there seems to be one shade available that didn’t race off the shelves as quickly as the others: Mint Condition.
I think the idea of a minty highlighter was a stretch too far in the cosplay direction for some, but I disagree. Industry trends show that multi-colored highlighters are having a moment. Here are links to a few that have been coveted by the masses:
Prism by Bitterlace Beauty: completely rainbow highlight with a 7-8 month long wait list
Solstice palette by Sleek: contains a lavender highlight shade
You Glow Girl by Ofra & Dupethat: this pinky highlight was SOLD OUT when it first launched on Ofra’s website
Fireball by Urban Decay: duo-chrome shade with orangy, gold, and greenish undertones
Mermaid Fantasy by Artist Couture: an iridescent turquoise with a hint lime shifts
Strobe of Genius palette by NYX: the palette contains a wide range of highlighters in different colors including a lavender and a golden pink
If you want to get your hands on Jeffree’s Mint Condition click either of the links below. Happy shopping and you glow girl (or boy)!

I recently paid a trip to my local CVS to use the plethora of Extra-bucks I had in my possession. As a bon-a-fide regular they know what I’m always on the hunt for; it’s like they make a point to ensure the NEW! displays are in my line of sight. On this particular day I went straight to the Wet N’ Wild section after seeing a new highlighter on Kathleen Lights’ YouTube channel. Needless to say with it’s $4.99 price tag I didn’t hesitate to lay my hands on Mrs. Josh Duhmel’s latest collab with Wet N’ Wild. It is everything I thought it would be and more! The pan and my pathetic swatch do not do it justice. This highlighter is smooth, buttery, glides on the face like silk, and is the perfect champagne gold color with a hint of a rosey hue. If you don’t believe me try it out yourself. You will thank me later!
This product can also be found at Walgreen’s, Duane Reade and Walmart.
