Coming soon...

So after the Christmas craze and the forced stop because of me being sick, things go on in Lost in Makeupland and I have plans on releasing new stuff and keep my company improving and growing.

There are quite a few products in the works. I want to briefly introduce them to you.

Finishing Powders

I've been working on these and testing them for quite some time already, with great results.  These will be released sometime between the end of January or beginning of February.
I've formulated three different powders to suit different skin type needs.

There's the Normal to Dry skin finishing powder, currently being tested by the lovely Sakura (thanks hun!). This powder it's meant to help set and kind of mattify your foundation, diffuse pores and fine lines and keep your skin nice.

My favourite is the Normal to Combination skin one. I've tested it on myself and it has absolutely worked great for me as a finishing powder AND as a primer. I've been using it on a daily basis since I formulated it. I usually wash and tone my skin, then apply a really thin layer of powder on my face, let it sit for a couple of minutes then do my foundation and makeup routine. To finish my makeup, I dust a bit of it again over my face and it keeps me matte and nice for 6-8 hours, depending on how my skin is behaving that day.

Last but not least, I've also formulated a Finishing Powder for Oily skin. I was having a friend test it, but she didn't at the end so I'm still trying to find someone to test it before it is released.
I've tried it on myself, but it's not appropiate for my skin type since I'm normal with a tendency to get slightly to very (depending on the weather and my hormones) oily on my T-zone, so my experience isn't correct in order to test/tweak it. It does dry my skin too much and I have to take it off after minutes. The only conclussion I can take out of this is that it is too drying for normal skin types and would "probably" work on oilier ones, but there's no way I'm releasing this until I get it tested properly.

Alice's Chains collection

When this collection was going to be released, I had a major supply problem so I kept it away for some time. Then, I re-tested it and found I could make some changes since Dirt and Rain When I Die stain my lids so I've tweaked their formulas a bit. It'll probably be released in February.
I really do want to take my time and maybe design some nice packaging for it.

Them Bones, Would?, Dirt, Rain When I Die, Man in The Box, Love Hate Love

More Blushes

I have quite a few blushes formulated and will probably release them all during February. Swatches will be up soon ;)

Lifestyle Collection

I stopped releasing Lifestyle shades back when I had the supply problem in December and it was something else I neglected after being sick. I have a lot of colors from this collection and plan on releasing them. I'm quite fond of them and think they're really nice on terms of color and texture, even though each one has its own.
If everything goes well, I'll be releasing a new Lifestyle eyeshadow on Monday 24. I'll show you some swatches during next week.

Concealing Powders

These are still in the earliest creation process. I'm experimenting with formulas, colors and coverages to come up with a green and yellow powder to even out redness, a light lavender and orange one for under eye concealing... as I've stated, right now that's just experimenting, but I hope something good comes out of it.

More Eyeshadows

I'm also working on more colors with and textures for eyeshadows and will keep on releasing new colors in the following months. I'll probably wait until I'm happy with quite a few and release them all together instead of releasing one by one.


I'm happy to say that there are a few more highlighters coming soon!!! I've done two collaborative super seeeeekrit projects with two wonderful ladies and you'll hear about them soon. I'm very excited about them and hope you will be too once they see the light! ;)

Wow, that's about it I guess, are you people looking forward for something particular? Any suggestions on products, eyeshadow finishes, blushes or finishing powders you'd like? How do you feel about powder concealers? Feedback is always welcome! :)

Belén!!!! I can't wait for the full size of the product I'm testing!!! It lasts also around 6-8 hours too or even more. My skin looks so perfect! and I don't get the feeling I'm looking too white or feeling powder on my face. The texture is perfect.
I can't wait to see more new stuff! I read something interesting. I'll talk to you later or now lol XD

I hope you can find someone to test your finishing powder for oily skin soon. :)

Goodluck with your projects! ^o^

Hm, it is a shame I recently bought a full size of Glow (which I received today)... Though I like a lot how it brightens my skin!
Btw, if you need someone to test the undereye concealer, you can count on me... Don't know what to do to get rid of those dark circles in the morning!
