Ten New & Exciting Beauty Launches
Over the past few months there has been a real lack of exciting launches in the beauty world, I guess everyone is on holiday and /or waiting for the Autumn / Winter to kick in. Then suddenly I got excited, a couple of things were launched and suddenly, I felt excited about. Phew! For a second there, I was starting to sound like a real Debbie Downer, right?! Anyway, here are ten new and super exciting product launches I really wanted to share… enjoy!
Lee Stafford Rainbow Shine Irons
Here’s a product I’m obsessed with and for one shallow reason… just LOOK at the awesome ‘Rainbow Shine’ finish plates on these bad boys? I mean, come on! They look HOT!!! I think when I first saw these I may have even done a little squeal, I think they are so cool and so exciting! They come in this finish as straighteners, dryer and curlers, and as you would expect from Lee Stafford, they work well and they are affordable.
I’m always happy when Glamglow release new products and I’m really enjoying these new Poutmuds. They are essentially a tinted lip balm, but I swear they give a little bit of a plump to your lips, whilst they colour and hydrate. They come in a selection of shades, some more wearable (pinks and reds) and others less wearable (purple and grey!!!!) These handbag cuties are so much fun and I’m really enjoying the red one!
That’s right! IT Cosmetics have finally launched in the UK and I’m so happy! You can pick up a stash at Selfridges and personally, I would personally head straight to the base products as it’s that which they are famous for. I have been wearing the CC cream a lot lately and it give a good coverage for a CC cream, it feels really light, hydrating, comfortable and just looks really natural. Also, I have the shade ‘Fair’ which is pale enough for my ghostly skin. It also has an SPF 50 built into it which you would NEVER expect as it feels so light and fluid. Well worth the hype and well worth checking out.
Too Faced Melted Latex Lipsticks
Yes! They are finally here!! The Too Faced Melted Latex Lipsticks are finally out after months of teasing on Instagram!! True to their word, they are richly pigmented and super shiny. I was a bit worried that they wouldn’t be comfortable, or that wearable, but they actually are both. The next launch is set to be a collab with Kandee Johnson and I can’t wait for it! I don’t think my love affair with Too Faced will ever end!
Aveda Thickening Hair Tonic
I think we all know I’m all about the big bouffant, however, my natural hair texture is pretty thin and well, lame. Thankfully, there are plenty of haircare products on the market to help me and my current favourite is this Aveda Thickening Hair Tonic, it applies onto wet hair and dries to leave thicker, fuller hair. It smells wonderfully herby and spa-like and it is natural so free of all those hair nasties which leave a residue. This ones a game changer ladies!
Soap & Glory Spectaculips Matte-allic Lip Cream
One of the biggest trends on Instagram at the moment is the metallic lipstick trend, which I think started with Jouer. The effect is beautiful, but the price tag is a little hefty, especially for a trend which might not last that long. Thankfully, Soap & Glory have had a little lab-time and created their own spin on the metallic lip trend with these Soap & Glory Spectaculips Matte-allic Lip Cream. They are priced at £8 each and currently on a 3-for-2 offer with other selected S&G products, which seems pretty good to me!
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate
I have such a long relationship with Estee Lauder, it’s always been my mums favourite make-up and every single year my dad gives her the Christmas beauty box for christmas. She always tells me how she can remember applying her EL make-up in hospital on the morning I was born and I often joke that the reason I always wear red lipstick is because it’s the one shade in the box my mum would never wear. Anyway! There is a new Estee Lauder product out and it’s a real winner, it’s part of the Advanced Night collection and it’s an eye cream. It’s absolutely stunning, it is super hydrating, super nourishing and really does help to reduce the look of dark circles and lines as well as just make eyes feel fresher. Love love love!!
The Body Shop Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream
When I was growing up, I adored The Body Shop, I loved the bath pearls, body butters, lip balms and animal shaped soaps soooooo much! But when I got a bit older, I kind of forgot about them, which is crazy as they have so many amazing products! They have just released a bunch of new products but one of my very favourite is the Ethiopian Green Coffee Cream, it’s really invigorating, but it’s also feels really fresh and uplifting. The pot is a monster and you can just slather it all over yourself and feel so damn good about life! Loving it!
Guerlain Bluring Active Base Primer
For me, Guerlain gives me that same feeling I get when I walk in Chanel. It’s such a ‘Love’ brand of mine, it makes me feel so special and happy when I wear it. They have a lot of new and wonderful items out this A/W, but one of my favourites has to the the Guerlain Bluring Active Base Primer. It has such a soft, light powdery finish, which is the perfect base for make up. It feels super lightweight, super comfortable and it just works wonderfully well. It also smells like an absolute dream!
Bodhi & Birch Desert Rose Face Oil
Ok, so fans of B&B might not think this is new, which it kind of isn’t but it kind of is, as it has been reformulated. It is such a stunning face oil, so rich, so indulgent and luxurious and it feels so so good!!! Bodhi & Birch Desert Rose Face Oil absolutely stunning and if you liked it before, you will love it even more now! Also, I got some travel minis of B&B shower gel and damn, I forgot how much I love their products. Please! I urge you to treat yourself!
Clarins SOS Masks
This month saw the release of Clarins SOS Masks, each one targeting a different skin need; hydration, purifying and comfort. With this launch they are really encouraging us all to take 10 minutes for ourselves and feel good for it, which is something I’m really advocate too! Personally, I’m all about the Hydra face mask, because I have dry skin, but I have heard great things about all three of them. The hydrating mask is blue (so much fun!), it feels really cooling and refreshing and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated, supple and generally refreshed.
So, there we have it, Ten New & Exciting Beauty Launches! Do any of these take your fancy?!
