Beauty News… New Releases for Spring by Sarah Jane Lanagan
When it comes to beauty, pastel colours are really popular this spring, but Lilac/Lavender is making the biggest impact by far, which is lucky because it is the type of colour that suits pretty much every skin tone and can be worked to give either a sophistication or edge to your look, huzzah! So far, it’s been seen on the runways of Nicholas K and Philip Lim as well as in a lot of seasonal cosmetics collections, check out some of the best new releases below…
Bobbi Brown Peony & Python: This is Bobbi Brown’s perfectly formed limited edition collection for Spring 2011. They enlisted the help of American fashion house Tibi to design the snakeskin inspired make-up case to show off the on-trend shades of pink, purple and neutral grey. In the collection there are also subtle lip shades, a soft pinky, peach blush and dove grey gel eyeliner to compliment the overall wistful romanticism. The extreme lengthening mascara gives lashes a boost and creates depth with shades of either black or plum available.
Smashbox In Bloom Palette: It’s quite rare that a make-up house releases a seasonal collection that is both on trend and will work everyday on a long term basis, but Smashbox have done just that with their In Bloom eye palette for Spring. Filled with ten different neutral shades that are a combination of shimmery eye washes, solid pigments and matte tones, the looks you could create are quite literally limitless!
Chantecaille Les Macarons Face Palette: Luxury brand Chantecaille launched their limited edition face palette a few weeks ago, which contains everything a girl could want for flawless spring time make-up! The palette contains a deep purple eyeliner, skin highlighter, cheek stain and lip gloss to give your face a natural, girlish glow.
Esteé Lauder’s Wild Violet: For Spring/Summer the range includes the lovely Violet Diva nail colour and “Untamed Violet” eyeshadow, which will give our eyes a serious pop of colour.
Lancome have released a similar shade for nails called Le Vernis “Ultra Lavande” which is gorgeous!
Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum: It was only a matter of time before Jimmy Choo founder, Tamara Mellon launched a fragrance as glamourous as her shoe empire! Encased in faux snakeskin, the grown up sophistication of Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum is brought to life by a warm toffee base note and then laced with top chords of orchid, and patchouli. Beautiful and feminine and finally… a slightly more affordable product from one of the world’s biggest fashion brands yay!
L’Occitane Plum Blossom Collection: French beauty house L’Occitane en Provence have just introduced their latest Floral collection for Spring which follows on from the previous Cherry and Peach Blossom launches of past years.
The new season range features a variety of wonderfully, indulgent products including an eau de toilette, hydrating body scrub, lip gloss, body lotion and shower gel, all laced with the intoxicating scent of the soft, powdery “Fleurs de Brignoles”; the beautiful Plum Blossom. Prices range from €5 – €40 so won’t make your credit card beg for mercy either!
