Makeup Releases for Fall 2018

Sharing is caring!

With back to school being around the corner, teachers need to get their minds off the stress ahead. Drooling over makeup I want to buy or compulsively buying said makeup is one of the ways I relax. Ok, more seriously, it’s the only way I relax. Let’s see how much of my next salary is going to be squandered on these new makeup releases for fall 2018. 

Revolution Makeup 

Not only are they coming out with a Supersize version (13g for £7/€7.99/$10) of their well-known and loved (not by me) Conceal and Define concealer, but they’re also extending the range by releasing a Conceal and Define FOUNDATION. The new foundation is scheduled to be released on September 5th and will have a range of 24 shades. It is claimed to be buildable, full coverage, blendable, ageless, unisex. Cost: £9/€9.99/$12.

(Edit: since writing this post, I’ve ordered and tested the foundation, you can find the review here)

Did you know that I have a mailing list? Not the annoying kind, though! I just send an email once a month to share news, posts, etc. It’s free, you know. And my emails are really funny, too. There’s a subscription form just here on the right hand side of the page –>

Makeup revolution conceal and define foundation, supersize concealer, new makeup releases for fall 2018

I’m thinking of picking up the foundation because I can’t help myself but try Makeup Revolution (Revolution Beauty, Revolution Makeup, whatever they’re called) products. 

M.A.C. Cosmetics holidays collection

There hasn’t been an official release date yet, but MAC Cosmetics will soon be releasing their holidays 2018 collection (called Shiny Pretty Things). It will include 2 Mineralize Skinfinish powders, 5 lipsticks, 5 lipglasses, 5 single eyeshadows and 4 Dazzleliners. Expect a lot of shimmer and glitter.

Will you be getting any of these products?

Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette

On September 10, Urban Decay Cosmetics will be releasing the Elements eyeshadow palette combining “18 never-before-seen shades from bright mattes to holographic shimmers all orbiting Luna, an ultra-iridescent transformer shade.”

This looks like the perfect Christmas present. I’m not sure how much it’s going to retail for, but for some odd reason I don’t find this palette nearly as exciting as the next one…

Urban Decay Naked Palette Cherry

Speaking of makeup releases for fall 2018… *this* is exactly what I love to buy at this time of year. I feel this palette would be a pleasant change from the usual autumnal warm/orange tones. There isn’t much information about the release date or price point, but people seem understandably uberexcited about the Cherry palette. I know I am. 

I’m thinking of picking up the Makeup Revoluton Conceal and Define foundation and the Urban Decay Cherry Palette. I *might* indulge in one or two MAC products (per usual). 

Will you be buying any one of these makeup releases for fall 2018?

    I really want to try the Makeup Revolution foundation, and will definitely pick up the supersize concealer. The Urban Decay Cherry palette is nice, I want to see it in store.

      It’s out now. And if you liked the concealer, you might love the foundation :))

    I must admit, these are all must have items. You are selective to quality stuff. I got my own favorites already.

    Oooo the urban decay palette is getting me excited! I’ve just spent too much on the body shop seasonal palette 😂 haven’t reviewed it yet as I’m watching YouTube to learn how to swatch 😂

    • Kate
      September 2, 2018 / 9:24 pm

      What seasonal palette is it?

      • September 2, 2018 / 9:44 pm

        Earth Grey Quad Eye I got a preview this weekend – and I’m going to try it out properly next week x

    I find out all the latest makeup news via blogs so thanks for keeping me updated Kate! The Elements eyeshadow palette is absolutely gorgeous, those shades are wow!! The Urban Decay cherry palette looks so pretty. Everything here would make perfect Christmas gifts, I can’t believe I’m getting excited about Christmas already. Thanks for sharing lovely! 💖 xx

    I can’t wait to test out the new Revolution foundation and to get a supersize concealer so I can stop worrying about mine always running out! Personally I don’t like the look of the new Urban Decay Naked palette I don’t think it looks half as nice as some of the other releases they’ve done!

      I gotta say I quite like it. I’ve never been a fan of the Revolution concealer, but I’m definitely going to give the foundation a try! Thanks for commenting.

    I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but I love Revolution stuff, because it’s so affordable!

    • Kate
      September 2, 2018 / 11:42 am

      Yup! And it doesn’t feel like a crazy financial commitment if you don’t use it that much 🙂

        September 2, 2018 / 11:43 am

        Definitely! I have a few expensive pieces, but it’s such a waste of money when I don’t wear it often

  12. September 2, 2018 / 11:26 am

    Love the look of the new Urban Decay palette, the shades look incredible! I will also be keeping my eye out for the MAC holiday collection, they do some amazing giftsets and I usually treat myself to one when I’m meant to be buying presents for others.

    • Kate
      September 2, 2018 / 11:51 am

      I do the same :))

    Oh my word the UD naked cherry is right up my street *I do not need more eyeshadow, I do not need more eyeshadow*

      I wonder if there’s an Eyeshadow Anonymous society somewhere.

      • September 2, 2018 / 11:52 am

        Maybe we should start one

        • Kate
          September 2, 2018 / 11:53 am

          I think I might need one. I’m already scheming my next purchase. sigh.

  15. September 1, 2018 / 9:23 am

    Oh my god that mac collection looks awesome! Those mineralise skinfinish powders look beautiful as well, so glowy!

      Yup, I might indulge!

    Hey!! I’m going to be totally honest I’m really clueless with make up. But as a graphic design nerd I just had to stop and comment on the layout of your blog. Oh my loooord. It’s stunning. I love the feature graphic for this post 🙂

      Thanks. It’s all Canva and Pipdig lol

  17. August 31, 2018 / 4:00 pm

    I don’t know if it’s me just being old and boring, but none of these releases really excite me! I feel like I’ve seen those shades in various forms before, and nothing seems new and innovative? I don’t know. Saying that, I will still spunk all my money on makeup.

      Argh! I get what you mean! If you know a brand that’s truly innovative I’m all ears 😀

  18. August 31, 2018 / 3:22 am

    The Naked Cherry palette looks like a similar colour story to Norvina by ABH. I’m curious about the shades of lipstick for MAC’s holiday collection, the silver packaging looks pretty too!

    • Kate
      August 31, 2018 / 6:38 am

      I expect something glittery for MAC 🙂

    I love the look of the Elements palette but I already have the Moondust palette, just wondering whether there’s enough difference to justify buying it 🤔

    • Kate
      August 31, 2018 / 6:39 am

      they do look similar!

    I’m so excited about the Urban Decay Cherry Palette! ☺️

    • Kate
      August 30, 2018 / 9:32 pm

      Me. Too.

  22. August 30, 2018 / 9:09 pm

    Oh my, those Urban Decay palettes look amazing 😍 the Elements one looks so luxurious, but I think I’d get more use out of the Cherry one! Both are definitely ones I want in my collection, though!

    • Kate
      August 30, 2018 / 9:24 pm

      Exactly, the Elements one looks cool, but the Cherry palette looks more useable on a day to day basis.

  23. August 30, 2018 / 8:16 pm

    Gee, thanks a lot Kate! There are soooo many choices here I can’t make up my mind which one to try, lol. I really think I’ll go for Mac eyeliner in blue, and I also UD Cherry! I am becoming a true makeup hoarder…

    • Kate
      August 30, 2018 / 8:36 pm

      Yeah me too, totally hopeless. I won’t be able to resist the urge to buy the cherry palette 🙂
      Thanks for commenting.

  24. August 30, 2018 / 7:56 pm

    Oh my word… the UD cherry palette looks gorgeous! That’s definitely going on my Christmas list (if I can make it that long without treating myself to it!) Thanks for sharing xx
