It has been quite some while since I sat down and shared what is new within the beauty world. I have a check to call this daily as at the moment that couldn't be further from the truth. That aside let me share the new and breaking beauty launches coming our way...
Two new Summer fragrances from Issey Miyake Parfums - "Summer Eau de Toilette is a fruity floral fragrance for women that draws on notes of pink grapefruit and lychee, featuring accents of passion fruit and guava; while for the men, Homme Summer Eau de Toilette harnesses the scent of kiwi alongside spicy and fruity notes including coriander and grapefruit." These will launch this coming April and cost £41 each.
One of my favourite home fragrance brands - Durance will launch a new collection for Spring this month via Love Aroma. "French-based luxury home fragrance and body care brand Durance has unveiled its latest collection for spring. The Fleur de Cotton/Cotton Flower fragrance is featured across key products including a home fragrance, candle and incense. Established in 1986 by a couple in Provence, the brand uses the most precious of plants and organic raw materials." Prices will range from £14-£22.
Juicy Couture have announced the launch of its Hollywood Royal fragrance. The new scent comprises top notes of candied apple before moving into a mix of jasmine sambac, gardenia Brazil NP and tuberose fleur firnat; while cashmere wood, vanilla, marshmallow and soft musks fuse together in the dry down. The bottle has been designed to mirror a life of glamour and is studded with Hollywood stars. You can read my full review here. This will launch later this month and cost £35-£48.
A green lipstick? "Australian brand Lipstick Queen has announced the launch of Frog Prince, a new emerald green lipstick that transforms into a rosebud pink as soon as it touches the lips. Working with the natural colouring and pH levels of the wearer, it leaves a semi-sheer, glossy finish and petal-soft texture, and is enriched with shea butter and vitamin E." This will launch in May and cost £22.
There's not a whole lot of information out there (in English at least) about the new and upcoming Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Lacque . From what I have gathered they are non-sticky, hydrating, somewhat glossy lip tints. I can not say if they are dupes for any product at this point but they may be similar to YSL Glossy Stains.
When the latest Charlotte Tilbury Collection launches this coming July I can imagine many of us will be hoping to get our hands on a good few pieces! "British make-up artist and cosmetic brand owner Charlotte Tilbury has announced the launch of a new collection in collaboration with portrait and fashion photographer Norman Parkinson. The limited edition collection pays homage to the photographer who has worked with every iconic beauty imaginable between the 1930s-80s and on seminal fashion shoots from Pirelli Calendars to Vogue covers, collaborating with visionaries including Grace Coddington and Audrey Withers. Charlotte, comments: "With this collection, I not only wanted to immortalise Norman Parkinson in make-up form, but also capture the DNA of his vision of beauty: he was an alchemist with light, capturing the sun and the differing effects of mood-lighting on the skin. He also had a beautiful sensibility for colour. He knew exactly how to play with different effects of colour and light in order to create the most beautiful images." The collection comprises: Filmstar Bronze & Glow, On Call Make-up Bag, The Bathing Beauty Bag, Dreamy Glow Highlighter, Colour of Youth Lip & Cheek Glow, Matte Revolution Lipstick (in new shades - Red & Miss Kensington), Special Collector's Edition Box." This will launch in July and cost from £32.
