SS19 Foundations: Chanel, Hourglass, Dior, Guerlain, Estee Lauder

There are always new foundations out for Spring, and SS19 is not an exception,  there are at least 10 new launches I can think of, on top of my head. So I’ve decided to choose a few different ones just to give you an idea of what is coming out. All foundations are available in many different colours, except Chanel.

I haven’t tried any of these  so I am providing the official descriptions.

Guerlain L’ESSENTIEL NATURAL GLOW FOUNDATION 16H WEAR

“Naturalness & make-up performance come together for the first time at Guerlain. A foundation made with 97% naturally-derived ingredients with a natural glow finish that lasts for 16 hours. The complexion is perfect, luminous and fresh. The comfortable texture becomes one with the skin, making it ideal for buildable coverage (light to medium)”

Not sure what I think of the quirky bottle but it definitely stands out, and the foundation sounds like something I personally would love.

Guelian is available  from Escentual,  Harrods, Saks,  Neiman MarcusBergdorf GoodmanSelfridges and   Nordstrom.

HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation (£56/$51)

“Weightless, instant full coverage is delivered through the formula’s innovative coated pigments – allowing for seamless application and long-wearing,second-skin adherence. A natural finish is delivered through light-refracting microspheres, blurring and

Winter is Here: Urban Decay Game Of Thrones Makeup Collection

Winter is Here! I mean the last season of Game Of Thrones is almost upon us. I will be wearing my shirt, for sure.

picture from UD Insta where you can see more pics and videos of the collection.

Urban Decay did well, and brought out a GOT collection. And it doesn’t matter whether or not you actually need those products, they are a must for a fan. I mean, I was obsessed with the UD palettes years ago, and I would never part with my Alice one (see here and here), although I never use it. I think this palette is the same thing. It’s a great collectable item. Just look at it!

Game Of Thrones Eye Shadow Palette (£45/$65). I love the press release so I will include it: “Use this arsenal of 20 shades to declare your allegiance to House Targaryen, House Lannister, House Stark, or to defeat the White Walkers. Jewel tones and earthy neutrals give way to dark metallics and frosty shimmers, all of which can be customized with our four transformer shades. Prepare for battle with Stormborn, a glittery metallic purple, and unwind with Lannister Red, a matte reddish brown. Choose your look and claim your rightful place on the Iron Throne”.

And while the palette is the star of the collection, for sure, just take a look at those liners. How

SS19 Blush Palettes: Chanel, NARS, Jouer and Benefit

We already had a preview of the upcoming makeup products such as lip lacquers, highlighter sticks, eye shadow palettes and human hair wigs.

So let’s take a look at cheek palettes, and there are quite a few, these are just the ones I’ve chosen.

Without a doubt, the most covetable palette of the SS19 season will be this lill gem from Chanel –  Voyage de Chanel (£52 from the website) which is  a blush/illuminating powders quad.

African American Wigs

  • Paris – A fresh and satiny pink blush that recreates the flush of brisk air of Paris along the banks of the Seine River.
  • London – A deep coral blush, inspired by the colourful façades of the Portobello Market in Notting Hill.
  • New York – A satiny powder that brings to mind the metallic golden finish of the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Tokyo – A subtly rosy illuminating powder that recalls the poetic grace of cherry blossoms in Japan.

Besides Chanel, there are a few other gorgeous palettes to choose from:

SS19 Lip Lacquers: byTerry, Clarins, Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford, Chanel

Besides the pretty pastel and girly balm-like lipsticks which  are always out for Spring, I have notice one more trend, and that is lacquers.  I have chosen 5 different brands just to give you a taste of what is new, lip wise, for SS19.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lacquer. Clarins is available  from from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.

I am a huge fan of Clarins lip products so would expect Rouge Lacquer to be incredible.  The brand promise wet like vinyl finish, hydration and nourishment and easy application, among other things.  There are 7 shades to choose from. Shown above is 744 Plum.

Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Luxe  Matte $57 from Saks.  You can get Tom Ford Beauty from Nordstrom Harrods, Selfridges, BloomingdalesBergdorf Goodman.

Full coverage, highly pigmented, soft matte formula which  should be comfortable and long-lasting on the lips.  If you want to treat yourself – this is the way to go. There are 10 shades to choose from; shown is
