I am so sorry for not posting! It has been a crazy past couple of weeks, I’ve been sick for about three weeks, and my sister broke her leg and I have also been working on something super special that I will announce in a few days, but today I wanted to talk about this odd makeup trend that I’ve been seeing a lot of.
I know slime was a huge deal, everyone of all ages made slime and it was probably the weirdest trend because of how obsessive everyone was over it. I personally wasn’t a fan, but I know my younger sister loved it and still does.
I don’t know if this trend was seen by makeup companies and they decided to make putty makeup to try to appeal to a younger crowd or what but I decided I wanted to rant about this.
A few weeks ago, I saw Jeffree Star do a video on putty makeup and then I saw Tati on YouTube do a video on it as well, Jeffree Star mostly stayed on one product by Stila and talked about the Heaven’s Hue Highlighter which is a little gummy, I haven’t gotten the chance to go to Sephora to feel it for myself but from what I can see on the internet and through videos, it does look like a stunning highlighter. Personally, I am very fascinated with the fact that Stila as well as some other brands are stranding away from the traditional highlighting formula and they’re going for a more gummy consistency, I feel like as long as the product does what it’s supposed to, then it’s fine.
Next, I saw Tati’s video and she talked about two products from Elf cosmetics, which is their blush and bronzer duo, which often enough is considered a dupe for the Nars duo, and one of Elf’s newest launches, Ultra Pigment Cushion Eyeshadow Palette which retails for $12 and comes in two color options, Island Breeze which is more of a warm tone palette, including gold, browns and some burgundy colors. The other option is Cool Mist, which includes more blue and copper colors. I got the chance to swatch Cool Mist and to me it felt like a satin palette, definitely not gummy at all. But, when Tati posted her video, she was able to stick her fingerprint in there and it molded the pigments!
Like I said earlier in this entry, I don’t really care if the product is gummy or any other texture, as long as it’s a good product and does it’s job correctly than that’s all that matters. As someone who loves makeup and always wants to try something new, I say that this would be fun to try out because it isn’t your ordinary product and that’s something that makes these products so much more different. I wouldn’t be surprised if more companies will start taking part in this putty trend.
I am sorry for not posting, I am definitely getting back into the trend of things again!
