EA 1

Rather than spam you will countless beauty press releases I have decided to sit down on a weekly basis
and compose a little list of upcoming beauty products that I am excited about.
Less bulk more beauty is my aim for 2013!

1, Laura Mercier's Arabesque collection for Spring 2013 is perhaps my favourite collection this side of 2013
(she says 8 days into the year), it has a certain romance to it with pretty pastels which I forever associate
with the Ballet balanced out with some staple nudes/neutrals.

2, Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Sticks have went straight to the top of my must have list,
after purchasing a few By Terry cream shadow sticks and loving the versatility combined with the ease of use, it is safe to say I can not wait to get my grubby mitts on a few new shades to add to my cream stash.

3, The odd sneaky image of MAC's Archie's Girls collection which is set to launch next month in the US/Canada (most likely April for the UK) has cropped up on Instagram and on Google searches
but the official colour story and promotional images have yet to leak online.
Some of the lipsticks have already popped up on eBay and I simply must have Bright Betty and 
Daddy's Little Girl to see a collage of the eBay lipstick images click here.

4, From what I have gathered NYX's Butter Lip Glosses (available in 12 shades)
are pretty much liquidised lip butters which most like their solid counterparts can be worn alone
or layered over another lip colour.
Essentially they should offer the coverage of a lipstick coupled with the hydration of a balm
and the sheen of a gloss product.

5, Maybelline have me rather excited by their February launch of Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick Collection which features some of the brightest, neon lipsticks I have ever seen on the UK high street. From the swatches I have seen online they are well pigmented yet creamy and every bit 
as bright on the lips as they appear in bullet form...hallelujah!

6, Max Factor will be jumping on to the chubby crayon lipstick craze (a little late albeit) with their
Colour Elixir Giant Pen Sticks which will launch in April.
At the moment I'm not blown away but you can see a swatch of the coral shade here - link.

7, Next month sees Estee Lauder launch a small collection of slim sheer matte lip colours which are all very Spring appropriate in tone and as it Estee Lauder I have every faith that their new Pure Colour Sheer Matte lipsticks will live up to my expectations.
Admittedly I have never encountered matte lipsticks in sheer form...interesting.

8, Also launching next month is the eagerly awaited Benefit Fine One One which is a cream stick
combining a strip of each blush, bronzer and highlighter which makes creating perfectly sculpted cheeks a breeze! This has already launched stateside so a quick Google will supply all the swatches you'll ever need.

Honorable Mention - So?...perfumes will also be releasing a small collective of dry shampoo's
each fragranced with their signature scents, these debuted at the Clothes Show Live last month
but can now be found in selected Saver stores before being rolled out in Boots, Superdrug etc next month.

What are you excited to see launch?
