Makeup Madness

Beauty BulletinIt’s all about the makeup with this week’s new releases – palette addicts will be delighted and there’s some exciting news for later in the year that will keep your spirits up as we ease out of summer…

Bobbi Brown are releasing the chicest of palettes this month to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Their City Collection includes three eye and cheek palettes with beautiful London, Paris and New York illustrations on the cases. Available exclusively at Harrods, the palettes include four eyeshadows and a blusher in shades inspired by the city on the front. If you want envious looks when you pull products from your makeup bag, these are the palettes to go for.

On the subject of palettes, the new addition to the Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palette line-up is a good one. The Naked Ultimate Basics Eyeshadow Palette (£35) is available from 18th September and consists of 12 new neutral matte eyeshadows ranging from Blow (a pale nude demi-matte) to Black-Jack (a warm black matte). This is going to fly off the shelves!

Another high-end brand, Nars, have announced a 1st October release date for their new Velvet Lip Glides (£22). This new liquid lipstick formula, with Nars’ Oil Infusion Complex, combines the effortless ease and fluidity of a lip gloss with the pigmented coverage and comfort of wearing a lipstick. The 13 shades are named after the iconic venues and new attitudes that came out of the sexual revolution in the ‘70s, and they will nourish your lips as well as make them look good.

Makeup brand New CID Cosmetics have unveiled their Christmas line-up of products, which will be available to buy from 1st October. Mistletoe Lips (£28) is a gift set comprising of a duo of i-Pout lipsticks in three festive colourways.
