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.
Spring/Summer season beauty wise means new lip releases, so I’ve chosen the ones that caught my attention. It is insane how the textures and the formulas improve all the time and we get more sophisticated lip products all the time. Just take a look at these innovative gems.
A limited edition creamy matte lip powder trio with a metallic sheen. Comes with a moisturizing Base Balm to prep the lips. These look really cool, and I love the concept.
Lisa Eldridge lipsticks. The red ones sold out within a day(s) so I did not even have time to get any. But she promised a restock, and new nude and fuchsia shades (see below a pic of Eva wearing one of the new shades; pic is from Lisa’s Insta)! I don’t know the date yet.
BITE BEAUTY Outburst Longwear Lip Stain, $24 from Sephora
Bite beauty lip products are incredible, and it looks like it’s another great one
A while ago I did a feature on eye gloss and today I want to share about the extension of that trend which is 3-in-1 glosses. Glossy/glass skin has been a thing in Asia for ages now but we are seeing it in Western beauty trends now, as well. And I like it.
Here are just three products that were recently released which are specifically marketed for lips, eyes and face. While you can always use a good old Bobbi Brown Crystal Gloss why not playing with [hopefully] new textures?
Let’s take a look:
These are a part of the summer collection and come in 4 shades: Nomade, a perfect nude, Oasis a vivid rose, Laissez-Faire a clear shimmer or Dreamer a bronze shimmer.
Glacé Touch are promised to be a sheer, non-sticky gloss for dewy, high-shine glowing finish.
The looks below, which I found on Pinterest (still obsessed with it), will hopefully inspire you to experiment with glosses, as well.
