We're all about a good collab here at Bella&Bear, whether it's 2 big brand names coming together to create something amazing for us to get our hands on, or a brand collaborating with an influencer we love who really knows what the regular gal wants - we just love them! Today we're giving some love to some of the most exciting collabs in the beauty world - and some that are due to drop this year!
It's the collab we always dreamed of but never thought we'd see! We've all been obsessed over the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara since its released the Kat Von D tattoo Liner is one we can't put down ... but how about buying them together in a set? Well, that's just the start of the TooFacedXKat Von D 'Better Together' Collab!
Inspired by 'love, kindness, and compassion', the Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection features a double-sided heart shaped palette that is connected magnetically and can be broken apart in halves should you want to only take a few shades on-the-go. One side is a soft pink embossed with gold foil roses, typical of the Too Faced we know and love, while the other side is black with Kat's signature tattoo inspired artwork! *Swoon!*
The set contains 12 eyeshadows (6 by Kat Von D and 6 by Too Faced) and it also comes with a full size Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and a full sized Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara! All products in the set are 100% vegan and cruelty free.
The Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection is available in the US now and is set for release in Debenhams in the Uk 13th February- just in time for Valentines day!
Youtube sensation Iris Beilin hit our scenes just 4 years ago, but has already racked up 744,000 subscribers plus an additional 600,000 Insta followers and she is now pressing forward with a collab with budget-friendly brand ELF (EyesLipsFace) cosmetics!
The 'Mis Amores' collaboration is set to include a lip palette of 6 richly pigmented and creamy lip shades, and a darling beauty clutch in a perfect pink shade. Iris says, "Valentine's Day was my inspiration for the Mis Amores Lip Palette. I wanted the colors that I chose to look beautiful on anyone and to make them feel good about themselves". Thanks, girl!
The lip colors are infused with Shea Butter and Coconut Oil to help nourish and soften the lips. As with all ELF products, the lip colours are cruelty free. The limited edition Palette is available in E.L.F. stores $10 and also be available online with the 2 piece set retailling for $16.
Founders of StoryBook Cosmetics, identical triplets 'Erin', 'Mandy' and 'Missy' are "busy creating a full-line of products including exclusive eye-shadow book palettes, liquid eyeliners, lipsticks and make-up brushes all inspired by favorite stories!"
The company hit the scene and really got our attention with their amazingly detailed 'wand' brushes last year - which are so popular that sold out for pre-orders btw! And they are now working on a whole new line of products including a 'quill' eyeliner pot and 'Rose' brushes! All of which are cruelty free and totally adorable!
Check back to the site late February for the next slot of pre-orders!

Jaclyn HillXMorphe Brushes
Big time beauty Jaclyn Hill revealed she’s been working on a palette with Morphe Brushes via her social media last friday! *Squeals*! After her massive success with her 2014 Morphe Brushes Palette and her collection with Becca Cosmetics, we just know this one is gonna be a must-have!
In an Instagram post, Jaclyn said, “ Linda [Morphe creative director and cofounder] gave me complete control and I was so picky with the pigmentation, application and blend-ability. Our goal was to create something high quality with an affordable price. After two years we feel we mastered it.”
Jaclyn started working on this back in February 2015, and the company gave her full creative control. The final product is set to be an affordable palette with 35 brand-new, shades (some of which had to be resubmitted to the lab more than 30 times until she was happy!) and all of which are creamy, blendable, and smooth! If this palette has been 2 years in the making then we just know its going to be something worth investing in. Jaclyn is known for her ethics and attention to detail so we have high hopes for this release.
The palette is set to be released March 2017 - we're keeping our eye on Jaclyns Insta for some sneaky peaks!
