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.
NARS Tinted Glow Busters, £28 (from Nordstorm, Selfridges, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Barneys.)are available in 4 shades. The product is promised to give you that dewy, soft-focused finish, can be worn mixed with, under or instead the foundation. Unfortunately, it’s a LE product so get it while you can. Sounds exactly what the post-winter skin needs.
As for concealers, here are 3 I wanted to share about, and I’ve included extracts from the press releases.
Dior 0 Neutral, BECCA Cosmic 2, Hourglass Creme
