SS16 Foundations: Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

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:

SS16 Foundations Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

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.”

Burberry Velvet & Lace Makeup Collection for Spring 2016

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.

SS16 New Lipsticks: Tom Ford, Givenchy and Chanel

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.

This innovative formula is enriched with nourishing Apple Seed Extract and hydrating Jojoba Oil and Coconut Oil. Silk Powder, Beeswax and special ingredients help visibly smooth, plump and add brilliant 3D shine to the lips.”

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.

BECCA Makeup Collection for Spring 2016 Foundation and primer

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. ”

There are 8 shades in the line from Fair to Deep Bronze (both shown above).

Here is actually a video that demonstrates the foundation really well.

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).
