One thing I love about the beauty industry is finding out about new beauty launches. I absolutely love trying out new beauty products (hence the amount of beauty products I love to review on my blog) and so a couple of months back I started with ‘new in’ monthly posts and here is what’s new to my beauty collection for this month so far.
New editions to my make-up collection recently include Pixie Lott Paint, Maybelline, Bare Minerals, NYX, Collection and L’Oreal.
NYX Avant Pop Shadow Palette - Boots
NYX is a brand I absolutely adore and now that it’s available in local Boots stores up and down the country (instead of just online) I can see it being a favourite make-up brand of mine for a long time. This palette seems to sort you out for pretty much every occasion that will land you way. You can wear the lighter shades during the day and the darker and shimmering shades to create evening looks. The eye shadows are highly pigmented and really easy to apply and blend and what’s even better is you’re getting 10 reasonably high quality eye shadows for only £13. You can check out this post about my favourite NYX products.
Collection is a brand that I think is really underrated in the beauty blogging industry. I think the lasting perfection concealer is the only product that’s spoken about from the brand and it’s a shame as they have some many other amazing affordable products. As much as I love using the wunderbrow or my HD brows palette, I have been looking for a budget alternative to carry around in my handbag for when I’m doing my make-up on the go. This palette is an absolute dream for the price, it comes with a brush, clear brow mascara, a mirror and 3 brow shades to help create the perfect brow.
Highlighting is a massive trend at the moment in the beauty world and I think it’s a trend that is here to stay. I love how so many budget brands are coming out with amazing highlighting products and these are definitely products to pick up next time you’re in Boots/Superdrug. I love using the golden glow one for everyday wear with my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation to make my skin look that little bit more dewy.
Bliss Lemon and Sage Maximum Moisture Cream - Bliss
I’ve tried a few products from Bliss in the past and they smell absolutely AMAZING. This product from Bliss is an Elle Beauty Award Winner and it leaves your skin feeling hydrated, supple and healthy. The sodium hyaluronate helps to normalise the skin moisture content and help it retain water. This cream also includes coconut oil (which is literally the dream ingredient).
If you’re not a fan of liquid highlighting products then you NEED to pick up this highlighting powder. I love using a fan brush with this to create a light coverage to a basic make-up look so my skin still looks glowy.
When it comes to hair care products for temporary dying there’s not much choice on the high street. I remember seeing these Pixie Lott Paints in Superdrug and now I’m super happy I have this shade and the hair chalks in my life. I think these products are great for when you fancy changing your hair colour but for it to not be permanent. I am going to be using this hopefully for around Halloween time for a party (though I may test it before hand to see how red my hair goes!) I will probably only dye the ends though!
Who doesn’t love hair chalks? I think these are great for parties, festivals a like and also if you’re just fancying trying a different look with you hair. What’s great about these is that they are wash out too and so they’re well worth trying out if you love experimenting with your hair.
Bare Minerals Clay Chameleon Purifying Cleanser - £18 from Feel Unique
I’ve been a fan of Liz Earle and Estee Lauder skincare for an extremely long time and I never thought I’d feel like straying from my holy grail skincare products, as they are favourite brands of mine. A few weeks ago I received a couple of new products from Bare Minerals in the post (this cleanser and moisturising cream) and I have to say I AM IN LOVE. Like actual LOVE. This cleanser comes everywhere with me (even when I stay over at my boyfriends) as I really can’t bear to be without it. I love this cleanser as it smells like roses, it is foaming and it leaves my skin feeling so soft. I think this is a great cleanser (and it’s not too expensive either) if you have normal/dry skin like myself.
Lastly, it’s this gorgeous moisturising cream from Bare Minerals and how gorgeous is this packaging? I love the newly revamped look to Bare Minerals (and they’re one of my favourite brands too) and the new skincare range looks so gorgeous propped up in my bathroom at the moment too! This moisturiser smells like a total dream, a little goes a long way and I love using this after the purifying cleanser.
What do you think of this months beauty launches? Have you tried out any of these products?
