I did not write any “Want It” features in a while because, quite frankly, I see new beauty launches all the time and it takes a lot for me to actually want that product.
But today I want to share about two items which I would get this very minute: one beauty, one makeup.
I am a big fan of baby pink pink glosses, and 1 Pink Irresistible looks exactly like the type of product I would like. Especially now that my favourote pink glosses from Chanel and Rouge Bunny Rouge were discontinued, I am looking for a replacement. And this could be it.
Le Rose Perfecto Liquid Balm is promised to nourish (shea butter and cranberry oil), smooth, plump and hydrate (extract of pink pepper) the lips.
And let’s not forget the
There are so many new lipsticks out for Spring, as usual, that I have decided to feature 5 that look the most exciting, in my opinion.
First of all, it’s all about the Rouge Hermés, available from March. It seems like lipstick is the way to start in makeup, Tom Ford did the same, and look at the brand now. And it all makes sense, it is so much easier to buy a lipstick rather than a handbag, that way most of us can get our own piece of luxury. And it’s not a secret that beauty gives the highest revenue for high-end brands, no wonder they all are launching beauty and makeup.

As for Hermés, each lipstick will retail for $67, with a for a $42 refill, there will be 24 shades to begin with. The gorgeous and unique design was created by Pierre Hardy, according to WSJ.
It’s that time of the year when the brands are bringing out new base products. I have posted about a few foundations already (Tom Ford, Bite Beauty, Estee Lauder). In fact, if you want to know more about the new launches follow me on Facebook.
But here is the preview of some primers, foundations and concealers that caught my attention, and I’ve chosen 6 items.
The one which I am curious to try myself is definitely the Givenchy Teint Couture City Balm, £38 later on from from Sephora, Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Harrods, Nordstrom, Escentual and Feel Unique. I wear very light city SPF products myself, and this sounds right up my street. Besides their Teint Couture line is great.
Laura Mercier, The Queen of base products launched 5 primers which have to be mentioned. Shown are the Pure Canvas Primer Illuminating (“enhancing Porcelain Flower Extract and a blend of Micronized Pearls, the primer imparts a healthy glow on skin”) and Pure Canvas Primer Hydrating (“Olive Extract visibly smooths and locks in hydration while Marine Hydra Botanicals replenish skin and promote long term moisture recovery”). There are also Pure Canvas Primer Blurring, Pure Canvas Primer Protecting and Pure Canvas Primer Perfecting. $38 each from the website.
I did write about the bronzers and some new lip products that caught my attention this month, so let’s take a look at the eye shadows. By the way, I often post previews over at Makeup4all Facebook page, so you may want to give it a like.
First of all, how cool are the new Colour Queen eye shadows from L’Oréal. These are oil infused apparently, they will come in 36 shades. [Pic is from Val Garland’s insta]. I want that dark chocolate and red.
Earthy Canvas, Smoky Canvas, Coral Canvas and Rose Canvas. There are three finishes in each: metallic. glitter and matte.
Givenchy give most other beauty companies a run for their money when it comes to packaging lately.
I am a huge fan of the Noir Couture mascara and I also loved their felt tip eye liner, and that makes me very excited for the new Disturbia collection, I have my eyes on the black mascara, besides these three, and the eye liner in the red packaging. I am being that specific because there is also a red mascara (which looks burgundy on the promos; LE), and an eye liner in a black packaging.
I’ve bought a mini NARS mascara just because it was in red, and good thing I’ve got a small one, it smudges like crazy, and I prefer the Givenchy design anyway. Basically, you can put anything in a red tube and I already want it, simple as that.
What about the products?
The liner is promised to be intense, smudge-proof and waterproof while delivering an intense black colour.
The mascara is described as the one to give “excessive volume and dramatic curve. A volume and curve effect, so excessive, they are almost disturbing!” The brush is silicone.
I have noticed that both products are sold out already, and why am I not surprised, so we’ll have to wait for the restocks. Givenchy is available online from Saks Neiman Marcus, Barneys, Harrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom so keep an eye on those magical red packaging.
The price for both is €29.
