Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Spring 2016 makeup collection is exactly what we all need in January. Gorgeous highlighter, and refreshing pink for lips, nails and cheeks. There are also a brown eye liner, grey mascara and colourful eye shadows.
The star of the collection is definitely the uber gorgeous illuminator Poudre Lumiere Originelle (£41.50), an enhancing powder for an imperceptible, soft focus finish. It is a light pink highlighter that leaves the skin radiant and luminous. Quite possibly the most beautiful powder of the season.
There is also a new shade of the cult Le Prisme Blush (£32) in 41 Lune Rosée which combines the following shades: peach, light pink, rose pink and coral. Seems like another must have to perk up the complexion.
I love the idea of the brand’s Mister Scrub (£22 ) which is a gentle exfoliator in a stick format and Mister Gentlebalm (£22) which is a lip balm that combines a moisture booster and a colour enhancer to nourish, hydrate and naturally reveal lip colour.
The nail polish in this collection is the pastel pink Le Vernis (£17) in 29 Rose Divin
As for the eye products:

To be honest, I did not pay that much attention when it came to Stila in the past but recently things changed. I think the brand is killing it with the latest releases. Their Christmas collection was one of the best but I love the Spring 2016 products even more. There is nothing in this collection I wouldn’t want.
And The Impressionist name and blue background?! As someone who studied culture and arts at uni – I couldn’t love it more. What a perfect example of combining art and beauty, other brands should take notes. Also, I am really loving the new improved website. The looks featured are just so beautiful. Sarah Lucero, Stila’s Global Executive Director of Creative Artistry is a genius, I tell you.
All the looks above are gorgeous, right?

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
