The Daily Beauty Report (07.01.2015)

Today is my first beauty report of the new year and I can happily say that it is brimming full of exciting new launches...

I have a good proportion of this collection to review and will ensure that I have everything online before the products hit the shelves. "Clarins has announced the launch of Garden Escape, its new make-up collection for spring. The collection comprises a range of products that feature shades ranging from coral and woody taupe to pine green and pastel pink. Products include: Limited Edition 6-Colour Eye Palette, a floral-inspired palette that includes satin and pearly eye shadows in greens, petal pinks, white and brown; Blush Prodige, a compact that contains two shades of cheek colour: a matte and iridescent shade with a lightweight texture and long-lasting finish;Limited Edition Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, containing hazelnut, mirabelle and organic jojoba oils to provide a nourishing formula while enhancing the colour, available in Honey and Raspberry; Joli Rouge Brilliant Sheer Shine Lipstick, offering bright colour with a moisturising formula in shades Coral Dahlia and Rose Petal; Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector, six shades of absorbent balms rich in active plant ingredients, including Rose, Coral, Orange, Red, My Pink (reacts with the pH level of lips for a bespoke colour) and Rosewood; Crayon Khôl Eye Pencil in Intense Green, which delivers accurate, straight lines with a gentle formula rich in colour pigments and includes a natural hair brush applicator."This will launch on the 12th of January and prices will range from £17-£32.

I can see this new Philosophy fragrance launch being a huge hit, both the name and packaging are just so dreamy! "Beauty brand Philosophy has announced the launch of its Fresh Cream collection, comprising a new scent that features a blend of vanilla, macadamia and spun sugar, enhanced with floral notes, vanilla milk and tonka bean. The new range includes: Fresh Cream Eau de Toilette and Shower Gel." This will launch in early March and prices will start at £19.50.

As a somewhat candle fanatic, this has me drooling! "Acqua di Parma has announced the launch of its Mimosa Candle, forming part of the brand's Fruit & Flowers collection. The scent comprises notes of mimosa, freesia and violet, alongside accents of amber, vanilla and musk. The purity of the wax and the lengthy process of creating the candle by hand ensures the candles burn from the inside, for up to 60 hours, without damage to the original shape. The design features individual mimosa flowers placed onto the surface with a sheer coat of wax." Isn't it such a beautiful design, pricey but beautiful! This will launch in April and will cost £80.

Yes, yes please! I best start saving now! "Christian Dior has announced the launch of its Kingdom of Colors collection for spring 2015. Comprising a selection of bright hues, pastels and contrasting colour blocks, the collection includes: Spring 2015 Colors Palette, a midnight blue case including 10 make-up essentials for the face, eyes and lips; 5 Couleurs palettes, available in two shades, green and pink; Diorshow Mono, with a monogram of holographic silver infused with mauve; Diorblush, a saturated bright cherry pink; Dior Vernis nail polishes in shades Lady (mauve), Majesty (rosebud pink) and Glory (orchid pink); Top Coat Eclosion, a transparent gel-effect containing yellow, green and white micro-confetti;Rose Dior Baume for lips in five shades, including beige, fuchsia, poppy, flashy pink and rosewood; Dior Addict Gloss in three one-off subtle shades of pink; Dior Addict It-Lash in a brand new iris purple hue and Diorshow Fusion Mono in golden beige; Diorshow Khôl, a retractable liner in shades of grey, brown, black, blue and pearly silver; and Cheek & Lip Glow, a universal blush for cheeks and lips." This will launch on the 14 January.

A beautiful budget launch! "Heathcote & Ivory have announced the launch of its Lily of the Valley collection for spring. The new soft floral scent, which comprises green honeyed undertones and a hint of a rose-citrus, features among products including: Eau de Toilette, Luxury Hand & Nail Cream, Nourishing Body Cream, Moisturising Shower Gel, Cleansing Hand Wash and Moisturising Hand Lotion; Soft Hands Collection Hand & Nail Creams set, Bathing Essentials set, 5 Scented Drawer Liners, Scented Sachet and Cosmetic Pouch with Shower Gel and Body Cream x 2 50ml. " Prices vary from £2.50 -£8 and this collection will launch in February.

A new skin care launch from Hourglass Cosmetics launched today. "Hourglass Cosmetics have announced the launch of Equilibrium Biomimetic Skin Active Serum, a night time rebalancing treatment that helps stimulate epidermal renewal. Equilibrium relies on a bio-identical phosphatidylglycerol, the youth lipid found in high concentrations in amniotic fluid, which is responsible for normalising skin cell growth and ensuring cells are differentiating at a healthy rate. The serum penetrates the skin surface to counteract the visible signs of ageing." This costs £245.

Have a lovely evening everyone!
