Expect to see lots of launch info on here once again. Here are five to get your started guys...
Clinique Sweet Pot Scrubs & Balms | Launching January 2016
Cute little pots that contain a sweet sugar scrub on one side and a tinted lip balm on the other. Pretty genius, no? The lip balms supposed to hydrate the lips for around six hours and apparently there's five shades and one limited edition shade.
Shades include: Candied Cassis (berry), Orange Blossom (orange tone), Red Velvet (red), Pink Framboise (pink), Sweet Rose (rose pink) and the limited edition shade is Citron Bleu but I've no idea which colour this is going to be. Any guesses?
Ingredients include: Grapeseed, avacado and jojoba oils, shea butter to hydrate and beet sugar granules to gently scrub.
This is one collection I'm excited about, look at this absolutely gorgeous, but limited edition rose toned Natural Glow 5-Colour Eye Shadow Palette guys! It contains five eye shadows ranging from beige to satin browns, so wearable and more importantly buildable for the evening or more dramatic events. I do love cosmetics that you can wear day or night throughout every season. This is one of those products.
Launching also is their Ombre Iridescent which has four shades of blendable cream-to-powder eye shadows that are said to be super soft and full of colour. The Multi-Blush is another product that can be worn all year round, it melts into the skin and adds a hint of colour to make you glow.
For the lips Clarins are launching Rouge Eclat Age-Defying Lipstick in four shades - Pink Blossom, Hot Rose, Rose Praline and Pink Cherry. The Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector comes in Plum Shimmer and Toffee Pink Shimmer, this helps to smooth the appearance of your lips while giving them a soft, poutable glossy finish.
Can you tell I'm excited about this one?
Sisley 2016 Launches | Launching March 1st 2016
Two launches hitting our shops in February and March include their iconic Sisley Phyto Lip Twists, launching in six new colours which include: Love & Nut, Poppy, Melon, Litchi and Sugar. Sisley's Phyto Cernes Eclat is launching a shade 4 too - these will launch in February. March sees the launch of Sisley So Curl Mascara and Sisley Phyto Eye Twists - I've no information on shades though.
Library of Fragrance Valentine Perfume | Launching January 1st 2016
Library of Fragrance are one of my favourite brands for single scent but unique perfumes. I absolutely love their Marshmallow, Musk and Green Grass scents and their latest 2016 addition is also peaking my interest. At the moment I adore Musk, when I want something softer I add some Marshmallow, I only wear Green Grass in the spring and summer so, Valentine is the perfect addition for the new year heading into February.
Notes include: Lemon zest, white rose, water lotus, honeysuckle and jasmine.
I'm expecting this to be a romantic, fresh air type of scent and that intrigues me. The addition of jasmine should make the dry down slightly confident and sexy rather than typically rose which is what most brands will be doing for their Valentines releases.
MAC Faerie Whispers Collection | Launching January 2016
I know this is going to be a big hitter, I personally can't get excited about it. It feels pretty, ethereal slightly but nothing we haven't seen before I'm presuming. Included in the launch is:
Beauty Powder comes in Pearl Sunshine. Basically this is going to be a highlighter and Iridescent Pressed Powder which comes in Sparkling Rose - again another highlighter. I'm not sure how many highlighting or lighting products are needed in one collection?
Foiled Shadow in Feminine Wiles, Sweet Illusion, Magic in Your Eyes, Enchanted Forest, Faerie Fayre, Joy Toy (really??) and Fly By Twilight. Again foil finish eyeshadows can eithe be amazing or look disastrous in the thirty and beyond age range (I tend to look terrible).
Lips we're getting A Sprinkle of Magic, Among The Fireflies and Midsummer Night. Cremesheen Glass we're getting Calypso Beat, Softly Lit, Enchanter, Just Superb.
Cheeks and nails you'll find - Sweet Potion and Spell Dazzling for your nails and Cheek Pollen and Spellbinder for your cheeks.
Please tell me I'm not the only one thinking 'meh' about the MAC collection? What are your thoughts on these guys? I'm all over that Clarins launch when it hits the shops.
