Clarins SS16: New Joli Rouge Brilliant Lipsticks and New Face Cream

Several months ago Clarins re-launched their Joli Rouge lipsticks, and now they are also re-launching their Joli Rouge Brilliant Perfect Shine Sheer Lipsticks (my review of the previous formula).

Jo Malone The Herb Garden Cologne Collection for Spring 2016

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I love my Jo Malone Red Roses and wear it all the time lately, as  well, as my other Jo Malone colognes. I am actually still shocked that Vanilla & Anise was discontinued, and I found out only recently…

Oh well, but the brand just brought out a collection of five new colognes, The Herb Garden, so maybe you and I can find a new love among these five scents. All of them were created by  Anne Flipo.

BECCA Makeup Collection for Spring 2016

It will be easier to say what brand is not bringing out a new foundation/base product for SS16 (a lot of cushions and foundations with a dropper). But I am personally most excited about BECCA, hands down. They just know what a good base is and they always deliver.

Let’s take a look at the new products.

Spring is the time for new lipstick releases, as we could see in the previous years. And we can see the same situation for SS16, too.

I have already posted about the new releases from Clarins and YSL. But there are just so many more coming out our way – think Guerlain, Lancome, Chanel, Tom Ford, Givenchy, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Armani and more.

Today let’s take a look at three of them: Chanel, Tom Ford and Givenchy.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Spring 2016 Makeup Collection Exclusive Preview

I have already posted  a preview of the Rouge Bunny Rouge new foundation on Facebook but I actually have samples of all shades now. And something else which looks absolutely incredible. It is the most exciting launch from the brand in the last several years, in my opinion.  And it will definitely be a best-seller.

And I am talking about the Eye Shadow Palette in 086 Antigo which is a gorgeous palette with four nude wearable shades.  The compact, pattern, shades – it is all perfection. I will definitely post all the details and swatches soon.

As for the foundation which is called Skin Soul Drops – it is available in three shades. It comes in a chic small (15 ml) glass bottle with a dropper. I have already used it several times and the first impression is that it gives a matte finish and a good coverage (which can be built up or sheered down, depending on your preference).
