The Daily Beauty Report (09.04.14)

Here is what is happening in the beauty world today...

Max Factor will release a limited edition version of their best selling Clump Defy Mascara - basically it will come in new packaging (not photographed above) to celebrate Superdrug's 50th anniversary. The mascara is said to be a 1960's inspired product that defines and separates lashes, preventing clumps from forming due to its evenly spaced bristles.

There is something so sweet, almost child like but totally summer appropriate about the next launch. "Ancienne Ambiance has announced the launch of Goddess Floral Waters, a collection of six pure essential floral waters inspired by the rituals of ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans. The collection features: Original Rose Water, which revives and de-puffs eyes;Lavomile Water, for long-term use on dry skin; Geranium Water, which balances and helps regulate skin affected by hormonal conditions;Neroli Water, a beneficial toner for oily skin; Lavender Water, to rejuvenate and hydrate skin; and Chamomile Water, ideal for use on tired eyes, dry or irritated skin." They some what remind me of being a child and popping flower petals in bowls of water to make perfume only obviously the Goddess Floral Waters are far more sophistctaced and have skin care benefits. One I will be investigating for sure.

I've spoke about NARS Summer already but this is purely to update that it will launch within the UK on May the 1st.

Rather excitedly images of YSL Bleus Lumiere Summer 2014 Collection has leaked and I for one can not wait. It features a warm toned eyeshadow palette that reminds me both of the sun, sea and beach. A baby blue nail polish and a bright lip and cheek lacquer. Oh mama!

This coming Spring Kérastase will launch a CC Cream for hair - Kérastase Soleil Complete Care Cream. This leave in hair product contains UV filters, repairing oils and illuminating pearls, the multi-purpose cream protects, smooths and illuminates hair, before, during and after sun exposure.One to pack in your holiday suitcase that is for sure.

This coming May Acqua di Parma will celebrate their 10th anniversary and will not only launch their special edition Iris Nobile Eau de Parfum but also a Cube Candle of the same fragrance. The floral scent comprises top notes of bergamot, mandarin and star anise, with heart notes combining iris concentrate and ylang-ylang, while patchouli, oak musk, vanilla and ambrette crystals at the base.
