Here is a weekly edition of the newest makeup products for face, eyes and lips that caught my attention:
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush ($34 from Sephora)
The shade shown is Dahlia (cabernet). Other shades are: Blushed Copper – copper, Camellia – ballerina pink, Foxglove – orchid.
These blushes basically give you that glow and multi-dimensional, versatile blushes to create a subtle, shimmering flush. Apparently these blushes are inspired by Shimmering Skin Perfector and give the right balance of colour and light.
Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick ( $21 from Sephora). There are
Every year seasonal collections are released earlier and earlier. And (mots of) Spring ones are already out, just in time to get something to cure the post-Christmas & New Year blues.
Here is a preview of Chanel’s SS16 makeup collection which is all about pinks, blues and corals, no wonder as it was inspired by sunny California and is called LA Sunrise.
How absolutely gorgeous is the blush?! Sunkiss Ribbon Blush ($70). The most beautiful cheek product ever. The other stand out product is Le Vernis is 683 Sunrise Trip ($28).
There are six products for the eyes Illusion D’Ombre eye shadows ($36) in 118 Moonlight Pink, 122 Ocean Light and 126 Grifith Green and Stylo Yeux Waterproof ($33) in 924 Fervent Blue, 925 Pacific Green and
Besides the lipsticks, the other makeup product almost every brand is bringing out for SS16 is foundation. And while cushions and foundations with the dropper (BECCA, Stila, Kiko Armani, Rouge Bunny Rouge etc) are having a real moment this season, “classic” foundations are still going strong.
And here are three that caught my attention with the official description:
Chanel LES BEIGESHealthy Glow Foundation (£36 from Selfridges)
“An invisible foundation that creates a natural healthy glow by giving skin the radiance of a day spent outdoors, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The perfection of a natural glow. With a range of subtle, easy-to-wear beiges, CHANEL’s Healthy Glow Foundation frees women from their fears of using foundation and gives every skin tone a lasting healthy glow. The soft and comfortable texture glides over the skin and melts away. The texture becomes imperceptible and allows the skin to breathe freely, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The complexion is evened-out and enhanced with a sheer finish.”
“Everlasting 16-hour perfection from morning to
Burberry just released a killer new beauty collection Velvet & Lace. And that look with a strong lip and a natural skin… I think it is perfection, and Wendy Rowe (Artistic Consultant Burberry, MUA who created it) just rocks! If you are not a fan of pastels, this is the way to go for Spring. Plus, there are so many brand new exciting products.

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.
BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation ($44 from Sephora)
“A light, buildable foundation that imparts subtle luminosity with a weightless feel. Every weightless drop of fluid imparts subtle luminosity that blurs imperfections and leaves a soft-focused glow. ”
