I really adore composing this kind of post, researching and finding new products is the most exciting part of being a beauty blogger in my opinion.
As always I have an array of both newly launched products and products that are due to hit the shelves any day now so without further ado let's begin...
1, Are you finding it a little hard to stick to that healthy eating plan you made with such gusto just a little over a month ago? Me too! Well Palmers have just launched two dark chocolate flavoured lip balms, one has a twist of cherry and the other mint...yum! Each balm has an SPF 15 and aims to not only protect the lips but also heal chapped and cracked lips. Available now from Boots for £1.80 each.
2, Launching in March is a small collection of Bourjois goodies each of which have been inspired by the swinging sixties The collection includes a few new shades of both eyeshadow and nail polish all of which is limited edition. Bourjois is a brand that never fails to disappoint so roll on March!
3, Yesterday's skin care post which featured beauty bloggers favourite skin care items was full of praise for Origins so many may rejoice to find out that a new edition to the Plantscription line is set to launch this March. Origins Plantscription SPF 25 Anti-aging cream addresses four major signs of skin ageing by helping to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, lifting, smoothing skin’s texture and restores elasticity.
I have come to love Origins so I have great expectations for this product.
4, Annoyingly I couldn't find a decent image to include but the same brand (Indeed Labs) that has brought us the staple skin care products such as Hydraluron and Nanoblur have just launched Pepta-bright. "Pepta-bright fades hyperpigmentation, giving a more uniform skin tone, prevents, treats and diminishes dark spots, restores luminosity and radiance to skin, prevents signs of photo-aging, stimulates cell turnover and maintains skin’s hydration. Ingredients Sepiwhite brightens skin while Chromabright works to fight the signs of photo-aging" Intrigued I know I am! Available now from Boots - link
5, The beauty world is a buzz with news of Benefit's newest product Fake Up which is a new hydrating concealer that promises six hours of moisture with a unique moisturising outer core surrounding the concealer. It aims to hide dark circles and blurs the appearances of creases and lines. When this launches (no exact UK launch date as of yet) it will be available in three shades. I for one can not wait.
6, Tom Ford will be jumping on the lip butter train and launching a collection of 12 colour shine lip products which are essentially a lipstick and lip balm hybrid. As much as I adore my very few Tom Ford Lipsticks
I doubt this is a product I will be picking up as I have enough lip butters to last me a long. long while but having said that who can resist a little touch of luxury now and then?
7, Admittedly this is one of the very few MAC launches I am not excited about, blame it on a combination of the shade and spokeswoman but Nicki Minaj 2 for MAC Viva Glam is not a lipstick I will be rushing out to purchase. Don't get me wrong the cause is very honroable indeed but there will not be many who can pull off this milky lavender shade with ease. MAC Nicki Minaj 2 should launch in the UK later this month.
8, Just in time for Spring/Summer 2013 Topshop Makeup are adding to their ever expanding core products line all of which has edited by Topshop Make Up artist Hannah Murray.New products will include Face Quad in Kick Start, an eye quad in Game On, two new shades of Lip Paint: Low Down and Yeah Right and most excitingly two new Stick Blushes in Sneakpeek and Acting Up.
9, Launching on April the 10th is 30 new nail shades from Rimmel all boasting a new formula - Salon Pro,
10 of the new shades follow on from Kate Moss's ongoing collaboration with Rimmel.
The idea being that she has created a nail polish wardrobe to suit every mood and taste, from what I have seen so far it looks to be a great little collection and I will undoubtedly pick up a few shades.
