The Scoop: BECCA Glow Bars, The Mascara & Flamingos


The beauty world has certainly kept us busy this week with lots of fresh products and sneak peeks of what the future has waiting for us. I thought it would be perfect to start doing a beauty roundup of the week's news, sneak peeks and deals. I know many of you may miss posts on social media - partly due to timing or the algorithm. It's also super easy for those who want to catch up quickly with the latest UK beauty news all in one place.

Let's dive into my debut 'The Scoop' - your weekly beauty roundup.

Urban Decay Born to Run Palette UK Launch

Urban Decay is launching a brand new travel-inspired 21 shade eyeshadow palette. The shades feature matte, satin and foil-like shimmer finishes in a spectrum of hues. According to Cosmo there will be a flash-sale of the palette next week right HERE. However, if you don't manage to grab it don't worry it will be back from the 28 June HERE and nationwide from 02 August and will be priced £39.50.

Makeup Revolution - The Mascara

Adam Minto the creator and CEO of Revolution brands treated us to a sneaky glimpse last Sunday. He revealed that Makeup Revolution is releasing a highly requested mascara named: The Mascara encased in brilliantly beautiful rose gold packaging. He also noted that this is "prestige quality at an affordable price". In keeping with the brand it will also be cruelty free and vegan. We will have to wait a few more months however as it doesn't hit the shelves until Winter 2018 when it will launch globally. I for one have been expecting for this from the brand and I'm really looking forward to trying it out.
