Before we all settle down and enjoy the start of the weekend let me share a few snippets of beauty news...
I'm guilty of using more than one mascara at a time to get huge, fake looking eyelashes but sometimes the results are a little disastrous, enter Kiko Cosmetics. "Kiko False Lashes Concentrate, a new collection of mascaras designed to work with your regular mascara to enhance, define and maximise the effect. Infused with carnauba wax, the hydrating mascaras ensure lashes are left soft and smooth while preventing clumping. Each mascara targets lashes specific needs and include Volume & Definition, Glitter, Lengthening, Volumising, Curling and Waterproof. " You can find them now via Kiko Cosmetics.
Okay September is a long way off (when this duo launches) but how cool does this brush look and sound for that matter? "bareMinerals will launch BARESKIN, the brand's first liquid foundation, which contains skincare benefits. The ultra-thin, weightless fluid contains jojoba-coated mineral pigments suspended in a coconut-derived base and has SPF 20 protection. Combined with a blend of vitamin C and lilac plant stem cells, the product forms a mineral foundation and brightening serum in-one. The foundation is suitable for all skin types and tones and will be available in 20 shades. Alongside the new foundation, new Perfecting Face Brush is set to launch, designed with a unique fluid reservoir, allowing the user to adjust the coverage of the product by filling with a certain amount of drops. Two drops into the brush will provide a sheer coverage, while four will provide medium coverage, and six will provide full coverage."
Oh yay a new Marc Jacobs fragrance is on the way and I for one can not contain my excitement, which I will have to until July. "Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream - a floral yet fruity fragrance that comprises top notes of blackberry, grapefruit and pear, with heart notes of jasmine, lychee, blue wisteria, and base notes of white wood, musk and coconut water." Yum!
While we are on the topic of fragrance one of my favourite perfume houses will be launching three new and entirely delectable summer scents this coming June. "Miller Harris - Symphony of Colours, a new limited edition summer fragrance collection featuring three new scents: Citron Citron, with top notes of lemon, orange and lime, heart notes of mint leaf, basil, marjoram and thyme, while green moss, cedarwood and cardamom are at the base; Tangerine Vert, contains top notes of tangerine, grapefruit and lemon, heart notes of marjoram, geranium and orange flower, while cedarwood, moss and sweet musk are at the base; and Le Petit Grain, with top notes of bergamot, lemon, orange oil, angelica racine and eau de brutes, heart notes of neroli, rosemary, red thyme, tarragon and lavender, while oak moss, vetiver and patchouli are at the base. Paris-based water colour artist Cyril Destrade has interpreted and visualised the scents into collectable bottles."
Later this month Nails Inc will team up with Preen for a collection of fun and utterly fablous nail shades! "Nail brand nails inc. has announced a collaboration with Preen by Thornton Bregazzi to create a capsule collection of four new polish shades inspired by the designers' SS14 collection. The new range comprises three shades fabric matched to the key colours within the collection: Miami Hot (candy pink), Florida Coral (vibrant pink coral), and Atlantic Powder (powder blue), as well as Deco Cuts, which is a blend of multi-coloured cut squares. The polishes feature the brand's silver cap etched with the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi's geometric print, which appeared throughout the SS14 collection."
Lastly and now on counters is Bobbi Brown's newest collection Raw Sugar "The new range includes: Bronzing Powder, a limited edition bronzer mixing red and brown hues, available in two shades including Elvis Duran and Medium; Illuminating Bronzing Powder, a smooth pressed powder formulated with sheer powder and micro pearls; Tinted Lip Balm, a limited edition selection of tinted lip balms available in Pink Raspberry, Brown, Pink Popsicle and Hazelnut; Shimmer Nail Polish, high-shine nail lacquers in shades Golden Beige and Raw Sugar; Beach Fragrance, an eau de parfum containing a blend of sand jasmine, sea spray and mandarin; and Beach Body Oil, a moisturising body oil containing four essential oils and the Beach Fragrance scent." I'm hoping to snap up the fragrance.
Have a lovely weekend!
