SS18 Beauty: Hourglass, BECCA, theBalm and Rouge Bunny Rouge

Please excuse the lack of features in the last two months but work and personal life just got in the way. However, I am determined to be better with the posts in 2018. But if you do not  want to miss updates from me, you are welcome to follow me on Instagram and Twitter.

I would like to dedicate the first feature of 2018 to the new products from my favourite brands: Rouge Bunny Rouge, theBalm, Hourglass and BECCA.

Rouge Bunny Rouge  just brought out  a  Provenance Tales Collector’s Coffret which includes Silvan, Incognito and Silhouette. Each comes is a gorgeous 15 ml glass bottle, so luxurious. A great way to discover the brand. There is also a  Fragrant Confections  which includes Chatoyant, Vespers and Tenera.

Get if from the website or Amazon.

theBalm  just released quite a few  exciting products.  I love theBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony Matte Eyeshadow Palette (Review and Swatches) so am happy to see Meet Matt(e) Shmaker Eyeshadow Palette ($29.50) which includes  a paired selection of 6 matte and 6 shimmer shadows,  so dreamy.

There is also a new highlighter. And, as you know, I am also a huge fan of their theBalm The Manizer Sisters Palette (Review and Swatches).The new addition is called Bonnie-Lou Manizer Highlighter & Shimmer ($24) and it is a “gilded glow-getter is an all-in-one highlighter, shadow, and shimmer”.

Finally there are two liquid highlighters:  Mary-Dew Manizer & Bonnie-Dew Manizer Liquid Highlighters ($14.50).  Our favourite shades now in a liquid formula. theBalm also suggest mixing these with lip products to get that sheen. Bring it on, baby!

Buy theBalm from ASOSFeel Unique and Sephora.

As for Hourglass, they are on a roll with the new hot launches. There are new eye shadows palettes, eye brow products, highlighters in a stick and a bronze eye pencil. Let’s take a look.

I am a big fan of the Hourglass eye brow pencils, so it is nice to see two different gel products.

After the Lighting powders took the beauty world by storm, Hourglass are bringing out new highlighters in a stick formula.  Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick ($42).

When it comes to BECCA, they are offering a collection for the under eye area, two products are brand new.

  • Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer ($32) “A cooling anti-fatigue under eye primer that preps the skin for smooth makeup application”.
  • Under Eye Brightening Setting Powder ($25) “A targeted brightening and setting powder for lasting makeup wear”

And while I personally can’t be bothered with so many layers under my eyes,  I know that a lot of people do appreciate under eye products that work, and this being BECCA they just may.

BECCA is available from Sephora, Cult Beauty and   Space NK
