SS19 Foundations: Chanel, Hourglass, Dior, Guerlain, Estee Lauder

There are always new foundations out for Spring, and SS19 is not an exception,  there are at least 10 new launches I can think of, on top of my head. So I’ve decided to choose a few different ones just to give you an idea of what is coming out. All foundations are available in many different colours, except Chanel.

I haven’t tried any of these  so I am providing the official descriptions.

Guerlain L’ESSENTIEL NATURAL GLOW FOUNDATION 16H WEAR

“Naturalness & make-up performance come together for the first time at Guerlain. A foundation made with 97% naturally-derived ingredients with a natural glow finish that lasts for 16 hours. The complexion is perfect, luminous and fresh. The comfortable texture becomes one with the skin, making it ideal for buildable coverage (light to medium)”

Not sure what I think of the quirky bottle but it definitely stands out, and the foundation sounds like something I personally would love.

Guelian is available  from Escentual,  Harrods, Saks,  Neiman MarcusBergdorf GoodmanSelfridges and   Nordstrom.

HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation (£56/$51)

“Weightless, instant full coverage is delivered through the formula’s innovative coated pigments – allowing for seamless application and long-wearing,second-skin adherence. A natural finish is delivered through light-refracting microspheres, blurring and

Want It: Estee Lauder La Dangereuse by Violette Makeup Collection

To be honest, Estee Lauder was never the brand I cared for that much until recently, somehow very few products appealed to me. The  break through for me was the collaboration with Victoria Beckham.I’ve been following her for ages now.

And ever since EL appointed Violette to be their Creative Director, everything changed. This is her second collection, and it looks perfect. I also love how well edited it is, there are only a few products but they are absolutely perfect!

January 2018 Beauty Favourites

While I am still trying to figure out what were my absolutely favourite products of 2017, here is a feature on my January 2018 favourites, and since I have missed the November and December 2017, there are quite a few products.

Makeup

Lips: Lanolips Lip Ointment in  Dark Honey  (review and swatches) and Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Love Liberty (Cult Beauty and Net A Porter.)

While the first product is a firm favourite which I have been using for years (they have a new packaging now) the CT lipstick is a new addition to the products I love. I actually created a Pinterest board about this lipstick for a competition when it just launched. This was a product from a friend who thought I’d like it, and she was right, it is incredible. Gorgeous colour, opaque and not flat, and comfortable but, at the same time, long-lasting formula.

For the eyes I have four products: Clarins Graphik Ink Liner (Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.) is  the best one I have used in a  very long time: it is intensely black and glossy, long-lasting, and very easy to use. A firm favourite, I highly recommend. As for the Max Factor 2000 Calorie Curl Addict  Mascara in Black Brown (Amazon and Amazon UK)  long time readers will know that MF are the only high street mascaras that I use, I am a mascara snob, because, unfortunately, cheap mascaras do not work for me. And I did not plan on getting a Brown version I just did not look properly in the shop. Can’t believe this happened again. But I am loving the softer version of the dark brown.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy  in 16 Vain Violet Brilliant (Net a PorterSaks, and Nordstrom.)

I barely ever use anything from EL but I am absolutely in love with this eye shadow which was a present from the same friend who gave me the lipstick. This shade goes really well with my other all time favourites, my little duo which is always with me, and I love pairing it with my beloved Inglot Eye Shadows AMC Shine 37 (here).The colour and the sparkling finish are just dreamy.

I also have two

To be honest, with so many new makeup releases, sometime it is hard to get excited about a new product but everything I have included in this post has that wow-effect. Let’s take a look!

Ellis Faas is one of the coolest brands out there,  the formulas of their products are phenomenal, so are the textures and the colours. This is why I am excited to share that the brand just released three new shades of their incredible Lights. I have actually reviewed the Lights (here)…

The new colours are: E306 in Beige, E307 in Chocolate Brown and
E308 in Dark Metal.

You can buy Ellis Faas from Selfridges and Net-a-Porter.
