Here is a preview of some new offerings from high-end brands such as By Terry, Cle De Peau and Aerin.

By Terry just launched brand new lipsticks called Hyaluronic Sheer Rouge (€29) which  should smooth, fill in wrinkles and fine lines and boost volume. Sounds  fantastic actually!

There are ten shades to choose from: #1 – Nudissimo, #2 – Mango Tango, #3 – Baby Bloom, #4 – Princess in Rose, #5 – Dragon Pink, #6 – Party Girl, #7 – Bang Bang, #8 – Hot Spot, #9 – Dare to Bare and #10 Berry Boom.

As for Cle De Peau, their Spring 2013 makeup collection was inspired by Mediterranean and I love the beautiful blue tones and the gorgeous  Amanda on the promo. It actually inspired me to wear navy blue on the eyes today.

The products from the collection are:

Chantecaille Makeup Collection for Spring 2013

Here is a preview of a gorgeous, as usual, new seasonal collection by Chantecaille.  This collection offers a signature palette, four  cool toned products for the lips and four products for the eyes.

The star product this time is the Save the Sharks Palette £75/$83 which was inspired by the Spring ’13 runway trends and BLOOM’S passionate commitment to ban shark finning. As usual, the brand donates 5% of the proceeds to a good cause, this time to support BLOOM.

The shades are:

  • Great White: a white and sandy beige inspired by the apex of the oceans’ ecosystems, the Great White shark.
  • Black Tip: an on-trend, deep ocean blue inspired by aquatic spring runway looks and the dark, inky fin of Black Tip sharks.
  • Grey Reef: a glistening sandy grey inspired by the Indian and Pacific Oceans’ Grey Reef sharks.
  • Sea Anemone: a flattering golden coral creek shade inspired by the underwater gardens of the tropics.

The new lip products are:

Clarins Gloss Prodige in 09 Water Lily Review and Lip Swatches. Rave

Clarins lip balms/glosses are among my favourites and I rate them highly!

I have actually already written about all of the ranges the brand has, except the Prodige Gloss.

You can read about  Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balms, Colour Quench Lip Balms and my favourite Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector.

So now it’s time for  Gloss Prodige (£15.50) and it’s the shade from the Spring 2013 collection which is called Water Lily.

As all other Clarins glosses, this one is very “balmy”, it feels very hydrating (the formula contains hyaluronic acid) and moisturizing on the lips, without being too heavy or sticky. I find that such formula/texture is perfect for cold weather, as it helps to keep my lips in a good condition.

Prodige Gloss comes in a beautiful package, very high-end, and has a sponge applicator that bends.  This gloss has a strong fruity scent, which I personally like, but some may not.   It is written that it’s blackberry and
