Long gone are the days when I was buying all those huge eye shadows palettes one, after another and blending 4-5 shadows together to create a look. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
This is why now I am mostly excited about the single or the duo releases. And just when I thought that I don’t want any eye shadows, Chanel are releasing these new beauties as a part of their Yeux Ombre Premiere Eye Shadow Collection. Already available from Saks and Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom (here and here)
While I have selected the shades I will be trying out, there are many more other variants which also include yellow, blue and other more daring options.
And how cool are the looks Lucia Pica created on Kristen Stewart? Simple yet
After all those matte and opaque lipsticks which we all wore in AW, so many brands are launching new lipsticks with glossy textures and lip glosses for Spring! Watch this space…
Here are just a few new releases, but expect to see many more.
I am personally a big fan of Chanel glosses and have quite a few Glossimers, so I am excited to try the new ones. Coco Glosses are described as hydrating and with an intense shine. There are 24 shades in different finishes: iridescent, lacquered and opaque.

Face and Eyes
I really love reading (or watching) about people’s top favourite beauty products, as this is a great way to discover new gems. I have posted 15 favourite makeup products of 2015 so now it is time to post about my most loved makeup products in 2016.
Unfortunately, four products (Dior lipstick , Illamasqua nail varnish, Clarins bronzer and eye shadows) that I absolutely adored and used non-stop this year are no longer available so I will have to mention only those items that you can still get.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Serene Light Skin Perfector
This was pretty much the only base product I have been using ever since I received it several months ago. I still haven’t written a proper feature as I really wanted to give it a good test before that. The product definitely stands up to the “Skin Perfector” name, as it makes the complexion glow without looking too shiny or oily. I also rarely use anything on top since it is a bit tinted. Not that I have a perfect skin but this is enough for me, I only use concealer where needed.
Clarins HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer (review and swatches)
This product does not need an introduction. I’ve completely used it up, hence I had to use a different Clarins product for the reference purpose. It is like a dry skin’s best friend, this tinted moisturizer never makes your skin look flaky and never accentuates the dry patches. Instead, the skin looks somehow “healthy” and radiant. Love!
Rouge Bunny Rouge Glide Concealer NAKED DISGUISE (review and swatches)
Regular readers will probably know that I barely ever use concealer because I don’t really mind a bit of dark-ish circles, as horrible as it sounds. But I personally hate the perfectly concealed under-eye area on myself. I also almost never get spots, so no need for the concealer in any other places. However, I do really like this product, as it makes the under eye area look better but without making you look like a mannequin.
Inglot Sculpting HD Powder in 504 (review)
As you can see from the photo above, this product is very well loved. Perfect shade for light cool-toned complexions, and the formula is incredibly soft and easy to blend, too.
Daniel Sandler Rose Glow and Golden Glow Watercolour Blushes (review and swatches).
I have spoken about my love for the Daniel Sandler blushers numerous times but, I think, this year he really killed it. The two newest shades are to die for, and although I haven’t been wearing blush that much in 2016, I’ve been reaching for these most of the times I have. Watercolours give you the “blushing from within” kind of effect, a must try. If you are a bit scared of the liquid, which you shouldn’t be, Daniel also has cream blushes now.
Say hello to the uber gorgeous new lip products which are out for Spring. I have already mentioned Burberry lipsticks but here are more from Chanel, Marr Jacobs and Make Up For Ever.
There are actually a lot more new lip products so stay tuned for those.
The formula is described as:“a hydrating, eight-hour wear, liquid lipstick in a range of bold, full-coverage nudes. Formulated with Brazilian cupuaçu butter and collagen, the rich, creamy texture always feels cushiony, and lips never appear lined or cracked. Has a delicate vanilla scent.”
There are six shades available. Yours To Try 450 – light buff which was
