Sephora New Brands: Pretty Vulgar, Huda Beauty & Saturday Skin

Sephora is getting pretty exciting lately with these new brands onboard. First of all, Huda Beauty's presence in South East Asia is long overdue. Huda Beauty followers are majority Muslim women and it makes sense for her to bring her brand here since we are an Islamic country. I'm not too sure what's the reason behind the delay, but let's rejoice it is finally here. Pretty Vulgar on the other hand is a new cult brand that caught a lot of attention lately. Last but not least, Saturday Skin just pops out of nowhere and I didn't even know this brand exists until I was browsing through Sephora's website.

Pretty Vulgar

I have to talk about this brand first. I have been dying to try this and finally! Initially, I was excited beyond reason and added 5 items from Pretty Vulgar into my cart. But then senses came to me, and I went on to consult Tati. I trust her review 100% because she always gives a fair review and has never been a brand slave. I watched her video and pretty much buy-in to what she recommended.

After watching the video, I reduced to getting the Shimmering Swan Highlighter and The Ink Gel Eyeliner. The highlight was rated as all-time A+ in Temptalia, I know it would be a star product. And the Ink Gel Eyeliner just won my heart with the ink bottle that resembles classic calligraphy ink. Albeit the packaging of Pretty Vulgar is very pretty, the quality doesn't reflect the price of the products. It feels plasticky, cheap and you can get better packaging from drugstore brands. If you're buying anything from Pretty Vulgar just for the packaging, don't be fooled.

Huda Beauty

This isn't my first Huda Beauty product. I had the matte liquid lipsticks (they dry up my lips so badly). And I had the Rose Gold palette (totally not impressed at all). But I think this brand deserves a second chance from me. After all the Obsessions Eyeshadow palette is too cute to pass. My first choice was the Mauve palette which has a pink/rose gold hue. Since it was sold out, the Smokey palette is my next pick. It is a palm-sized, perfect for travelling. To my surprise, this small palette comes with a mirror inside. But the packaging looks cheap with the cardboard casing. The combination of matte, shimmer and satin texture gives you the flexibility to create multiple looks. It also has a fair bit of neutral shades. You can create looks beyond smokey like how the name suggests. With the usual Huda Beauty quality, I think this palette is worth getting.

Saturday Skin

This is an entirely new brand for me. I've not tried a single product from Saturday Skin and I think the packaging is so sweet. This is a free deluxe size product that automatically added into my cart when I check out. I'm glad I have the chance to try it because the Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist is pretty mediocre. There's nothing noteworthy me to recommend. The mist has no scent and I don't think my skin benefit anything from it. But it's still a good product to keep in your purse in case you need some freshen up during hot days.

So let me know if you are interested to know more about each of the product in a more detailed review. Just vote below:

I have the same issues with Huda Beauty matte lipsticks, they dry up my lips so badly! And yes I was not too impressed by the full-sized palette's packaging either, cause you spend so much and end up with cardboard packaging! That being said, the Obsessions series do look good, and I liked the colour payoff.

I started using the obsessions palette. Really loving it.
