Here is what is happening in the beauty world at the moment...
I have never wanted a beauty bag quite so much in all my life! It doesn't hurt that the products in the beautifully embroidered bag are also top knotch! "Cosmetic brand Cover FX has collaborated with British accessories brand SewLomax to create a limited edition canvas make-up bag with contents. The bag features Cover FX products worth £129 including Protection Primer SPF 30, Bronzed FX Duo, Illuminator and Mint Tint lip primer." This is a Harvey Nichols exclusive and will launch the 27th of July for £75.
A new fragrance from Nicki Minaj and I have to say I am quite excited to try this one out as her past offerings have been nothing short of pleasant. It will launch on the 17th of September "Recording artist Nicki Minaj has announced the launch of her latest fragrance, ONIKA. The sexy, floral and fruity comprises top notes of fresh pear, starfruit and mandarin, with heart notes of water lily, orchid blush and petals of osmanthus, while sugar cane, white musk and cedar wood are at the base."
Who doesn't love a good multi-purpose product? I am currently testing this out as we speak. "Beauty brand The Body Shop has announced the launch of Gel Eyeliner & Brow Definer. The two-in-one gel eye liner can be used to both line the eyes and intensify brows. The gel formula features crushed deep and ultra-dark pigments which are blended with Community Fair Trade oils to reveal their depth and intensity for long-lasting colour. The product is available in two shades including Carbon Black and Brown." This will launch on August the 13th.
One for any male readers out there and launching this week! "Men's beauty brand EVOLUTIONMAN has announced its launch into the UK, offering its entire line of product (excluding nail lacquers). The brand, known for its green and ethical formulations, specialises in high-end men's grooming and skincare products, as well as a line of men's make-up. EVOLUTIONMAN products are scientifically tested, but never on animals, and are made with recycled packaging and SFI certified paper. Key products include: Revitalize Eye Gel, Wash & Buff face wash, Cleanse & Shave shave cream and face wash, Moisture Protect SPF 20, Moisture Protect SPF 20 Bronze, Face and Body Wash Nu Noir, Conceal & Treat concealer and Lip Balm SPF 15."
I can imagine skin care fanatics will be excited for this launch (again September)."French skincare brand La Roche-Posay has announced the launch of Effaclar 3-Step Anti-Blemish System, a new program featuring the three skincare steps: Cleanse, Tone and Correct & Hydrate. The system adapts this simple skincare principle to deliver proven efficacy on the key signs of oily, blemish-prone skin. Products include: Purifying Gel Cleanser, which targets excess sebum and impurities with carefully selected cleansing agents, zinc pidolate and the brand's Thermal Spring Water to cool and calm skin; Clarifying Toner, targeting large pores and oily skin and smoothing and mattifying skin while helping to tighten pores; and Effaclar Duo [+] Anti Blemish Cream, which addresses blemishes, oiliness, blackheads, clogged pores, while preventing the appearance of red and brown marks that blemishes can leave behind."
Christmas is admittedly a long way off but I simply had to include this cute little kit in today's round up. "Haircare brand Ogario London has announced the launch of its limited edition Countdown to Christmas collection. The Two Turtle Doves gift contains a duo of full size shampoo and conditioner in two varieties including: Revive & Shine; to inject vitality and boost shine; and Hydrate & Shine, to tame and soften dry, brittle and colour treated hair. Each set comes in a re-usable cotton bag. And A Partridge In A Pair Tree offers a small size Restore & Shine Hair Masque, containing aloe, sage, lavender and avocado." This won't launch until the Autumn.
