SS20 New Foundations and Concealers: BECCA, NARS, Laura Mercier, Hourglass, Dior and Givenchy

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,  HarrodsNordstrom, 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.

Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm Review (review)

It is such an ah-mazing cleanser, feels creamy and lush on the skin, smells really nice, and leaves the skin soft and smooth. It can be also used as a face mask. What else could you ask for?

Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturuzing  Mask

This is one of my favourite face masks ever, so I am not sure why I still did not write a proper review about it, will do soon. As the name suggests, it moisturises and soothes the skin. Whenever I am stressed out, don’t get enough of sleep and work-work-work, this is the mask that helps my skin to look and feel decent.

You can buy Elemis from Feel Unique.

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Creme (review)

I wrote a detailed review about this cream last week actually, so you can take a look. But in a nutshell: it is a lightweight but hydrating cream that also helps with discolouration. It retails for $40 from Sephora and £47 from Feel Unique.
