Here is what is happening within the beauty world at the moment...
A new skin care brand is set to launch this week "Caraderm is a new skincare brand which is based on a pure Irish moss extract for its skin regenerating and calming properties. The new collection is suitable for all skin types and is particularly beneficial for problematic and dry skin, sunburn and razor burn, while soothing and relieving the symptoms of eczema, psoriasis and irritated or inflamed skin. Harvested in the clean waters off the Irish Northern Coast, preserving biodiversity and purity, Irish carrageen moss is processed locally to extract its goodness to be delivered in the Caraderm products for skin protection, hydration and regeneration. Key actives within the range include peptides to calm and energise the skin, antioxidant taurine, arginine to prevent redness, marine polysaccharides with antimicrobial properties, and nourishing calcium and magnesium. All working together for optimal skin barrier function, the collection includes: Seaweed Serum, Shaving Shaving Foam, Shave Seaweed Gel, Gentle Seaweed Shampoo and Body Wash, Seaweed Dry Scalp Foam Conditioner." It is really well priced at £6.99-£10.99.
In two days the newest Urban Decay launch will touch down - Urban Decay Naked on the Run! "Cosmetics brand Urban Decay is set to launch Naked on the Run, a new all-in-one travel make-up palette. The kit contains everything one needs for a complete Naked look and includes six all-new eyeshadow shades (including the all-over 5050 shade), a bronzer and blush, a full-size Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss and a travel-size 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (both new shades); plus a travel-size Perversion Mascara. Naked on the Run is contained in a metallised rose-gold case, with artwork in rich brown tones reminiscent of the shades inside. Every shade in palette is designed to work perfectly together and makes it easy to create a range of looks. Each eyeshadow features the brand's Pigment Infusion System, the proprietary blend of ingredients that gives every shade its velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and blendability." This will cost £37.
A relaunch from REN - "REN Skincare has announced the launch of Keep Young and Beautiful, Instant Firming Beauty Shot. This gel-serum instantly firms, lifts and plumps the skin to leave it looking smoother, tighter and more youthful. A liquid matrix of Hyaluronans supercharges the skin with firming moisture and encourages elastin synthesis to firm and remodel the skin over time. Suitable for all skin types, 83% of women said their skin felt firmer 30 minutes after application and 90% said their skin felt firmer after six hours, while 87% of women said their skin felt more lifted 30 minutes after application and this remained at 87% after six hours."
One more skin care launch from one of my favourite brands Vichy! "Skincare brand Vichy has announced the launch of Liftactiv Supreme. This new anti-ageing day cream tackles fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness, which not only delivers results in the long term, but that would generate immediate and measurable improvements in the short term. The formula is enriched in 3D Optical correction technology which transforms the surface of the skin, both visibly and to touch, using a combination of blurring particles, mattifying powders and white micro-pearls to smooth and illuminate the complexion. Adenosine and caffeine combat expression lines and signs of fatigue, while rhamnose fights long-term signs of ageing, and anti-oxidant neohesperidin combats loss of radiance, counteracts inflammation and strengthens skin’s protective barrier. Liftactiv Supreme is available in both Dry to Combination and Dry Skin formulas." This is a January launch and will cost £31.
I have mentioned this before but I do feel it is too great an opportunity not to flag up once again as for some it will be a dream come true! "MAC Cosmetics has announced the launch of MACnificent ME, a new programme that will give the brand's fans and consumers an opportunity to become one of the six faces of the MAC 2015 Fall colour collection. Launching to the UK as well as 12 other countries, fans are invited to submit a photo and a mantra that speaks to the “Style, Heart, and Soul” of the contestant, along with a 100-word essay. The contest will run on MACnificentme.com, which is now live through to the 5th December 2014. Six winners will be flown to New York in February 2015 for the photoshoot. Winners and their final looks will be revealed in October 2015 to coincide with the launch of the MACnificent Me collection."
Those who like gel nails may be interested in this Ciate kit which will launch in December! "Nail brand Ciaté has announced the launch of Geltox, it's first at-home gel nail system. Geltox allows the user to transform any nail polish into a gel gloss in 60 seconds. Nails should be painted as normal and then once dry, an even layer of Geltox should be added onto the nails. They are then put under the Geltox LED lamp and begin the pre-timed 60 second cure, creating instantly dry nails. The Geltox Starter Kit Contains: 1 bottle of Geltox, LED Lamp and Power Plug, GeltoxCleanser, Hoof Stick and Buffer. A Geltox Detox Kit, which offers a nourishing treatment for nails, is also launching and includes Geltox Detox Removal Solution, Nail Wraps, Geltox Detox Serum, Nail File, Hoof Stick and Buffer."
