Happy new year and welcome to Makeup Adventures! We are so excited for our big launch. We have been preparing and anticipating this day for months. It’s time to unleash the makeup addict inside of you. I am always looking for the latest and the greatest in makeup. There are so many different cosmetics companies and I like to give them all a try. Most people say, “new year, new me”. I say, “new year, new makeup”.  So, I have been looking into some products that I haven’t tried and thought I’d share my finds with you.

Have you seen the Colorlicious Collection? The lipsticks come in 36 shades and they are infused with shea butter. Hello, luscious and healthy lips. I like different colors from nudes to reds and Covergirl has them all. When I was younger, I only wore lipgloss. I was afraid of lipstick. Can you believe it? Now I love them both the same. The Colorlicious Collection includes lipgloss as well. It comes in 13 shades. I am in love with Pinkalicious. The color is gorgeous and there’s glitter. I live for glitter. My dear, Adrienne, doesn’t agree with my love for glitter but what would the world be without it? Every makeup addict needs a little sparkle in their lives. Did I mention that the collection includes lip balm? The lip balm is vitamin infused and leaves your lips so soft and moisturized, with just a hint of sheer color.

Wet N Wild

I’ve never worn Wet N Wild before, however, I was walking through the store and this lip gloss just jumped out at me. I fell in love with the color. I’ve never owned a lipstick or lip gloss this specific shade but I found this one perfect for my first time. It’s kind of copper-ish. And of course, there is some sparkle. The lip gloss contains Vitamins A, E, and provides lots of shine my lips. Because I like this one so much, I am open to trying other products from this cosmetics company.


I’ve been wearing MAC since I was in high school. Don’t ask me how long ago that was. My favorites are their foundation, eye shadow, brushes, eyeliner, lipsticks, and lip liners. That’s most of their products, huh? Well, what can I say? They make really great makeup. I read an article on the Cosmopolitan website about MAC launching 50 new products this month. The MAC Makeup Art Cosmetics is said to consist of 50 new products for your eyes, lips, and, face. Are you looking forward to this release like I am? I will be following the MAC website in anticipation of this product release.

Kat Von D

I first saw this palette in an article that I read on the Glamour Magazine website listed under The Best New Beauty Products Hitting Sephora in 2017. I’m so excited to try this palette. I love a good palette, honey. Experimenting with color is one of my favorite things to do. This is the Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic palette. You know there’s some shimmer in these colors, too. I can not wait until this product is released this month. It will be one of my first purchases this year.

Marc Jacobs

I thought I’d end this post with must-have brushes. These are more on the higher end, but a good set of brushes is essential. And, do you see the travel bag? Yes, please. The color is fabulous. I have a ton of brushes. Believe me, quality matters. I’ve bought cheaper brushes and I’ve bought expensive brushes. There is most certainly a difference.  Add this Marc Jacobs set to your collection, and you won’t be disappointed.
