Spring Beauty Launches on My Radar…

It’s the time of year when I put out my eyes on new and fresh launches from beauty brands. Most of these launches are ones that tempt me toward them depending on how the trend goes for the year, as well as what my beauty needs are at this particular time.
I am already testing quite many new beauty products that will be shared on upcoming posts but these ones are some beauty products that I think are going to be a super hit formula for this season.
I will either get them as a press sample to test and try while some will be purchased from me to share them with you all here with my thoughts on their performance and quality.

In general, I love Nars Cosmetics beauty products especially their eyeshadows. Nars | St Germain des Prés Eyeshadow Palette from Claudette Collection is one of the items from the collection that I have my eyes on. I absolutely love the combination of colors and finishes in this palette.

YSL | Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation you all know I always get too excited to find new complexion products especially foundation and concealer. I have been a long-time lover of the YSL beauty’s foundations and I still remember the first foundation that I purchased was the YSL Touche Éclat Le Teint Foundation back then about 18 years ago in my early 20’s and I wore it on my Engagement day. So very excited to test this new formula.

Fenty Beauty | Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Powder Foundation I love full coverage powders and I always dig for those that don’t make my skin look dry and patchy. I think Rihanna nails her complexion products and looking forward to testing and try this new addition.

I always love Laura Mercier complexion products especially the Secret Camouflage Concealer Duo was one of my favorite concealers to hide my dark circles yet Laura Mercier | Secret Camouflage Concealer Duo Stick now comes in a new look. This is a 2-in-1 formula that is lightweight and full coverage, sounds good?
Yes, I am super excited about this new addition from her and this is going to be a new item that I will be reaching out to from now on.

Givenchy | Teint Couture Shimmer Powder is a Limited Edition compact that I am super excited about and I think it will a beauty product that you’ll need. I always love Givenchy’s complexion products especially their powders and can’t wait to try this.

There are quite amazing skincare launches yet Dior Capture Totale Set right now is offering quite an amazing skincare set which I find are perfect traveling. Dior is also introducing their Dior Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss now in a new shade – Ultra Pink which is a very nice and fresh pink.

as well as Tatcha | The Dewy Serum Resurfacing and Plumping Treatment just launched a new addition to their Dewy line that sounds like a one skincare product that will must-have for this year.

As many of you know I am a huge lover of cleansing oils and balms, here Shu Uemura just launched Botanicoil Cleansing Oil that I am very excited to test and see how it works on my skin.

Another skincare item that has tempted me is the Murad | Rapid Dark Spot Correcting Serum. I want to get my hands to this as soon as possible since I live to use the brightening serums during the winter season.

Charlotte Tilbury launched few new beauty items yet I have my eyes on the new Hollywood Flawless Filter Luxury Eyeshadow Palette and the Walk of No Shame Jewel Pot Eyeshadow. I love her eyeshadow formulas especially the gel cream shadows.

A couple of hair care products that really excites me at this time are the Living Proof | Curl line, as well as the Gisou | Honey Infused Hair Oil is not something new but I have in my mind to test and try it.
Sol de Janeiro | Triple Brazilian Butter™ Hair Repair Treatment Mask is a new bundle of hair joy that I am looking forward to testing this season.

There few new scents that are really tempting me and the Spicebomb Night Vision Eau de Parfum is something I have my eyes one for this father’s day. I think its going to be a fresh scent for this season.

Lancôme | L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte Matte Veil Lipsticks

Lancôme just introduced their first blurred matte lipstick line L’Absolu Rouge Intimatte. This is a lightweight matte lipstick that wears comfortably while it offers a soft finish. They are 18 shades of matte lipsticks and these are really phenomenal in terms of quality and formula. The color range is just beautiful ranging from soft nudes to some really nice mauves and reds.

If you been a Million Idole reader, you know I either don’t wear matte lipstick or if I do I like formulas that are more velvety and those that come with comfortable wear. Wearing a matte lipstick does require nice and smooth lips which I find hard to keep up with during the winter months. Yet I find this formula is quite hydrating and doesn’t emphasize dry patches and doesn’t feel dry on lips at all.
I love Lancome’s lipsticks for their quality and the range of colors they provide.

This formula has a blurring effect that gives that soft and nice focus finish. I received them in three beautiful shades that I can wear very easily.

  • Killing Me Softly is a nice soft pink mauve that looks absolutely beautiful on lips for a pink nude lip look.
  • Pleasure First a brick red shade that I love to wear during the fall and winter months.
  • Kind of Sexy is a gorgeous plum mauve shade.

The pigment is quite amazing with a very soft and creamy feel that wears comfortably on lips. The formula is enriched with hemispherical filler that helps create a very unique finish to the lips that are not opaque. You can really spread out the lipstick all over the lips for a more full coverage finish while I like to dap it all over my lips and smooth it out with a brush for that blurred look.

Bottom line, its an absolute amazing formula. If you’re looking for a nice hydrating matte lipsticks with a blurring effect then this is a great option to look into.

Currently Testing …

There are quite many new beauty launches including makeup and skincare at this time of the year. Most of these beauty launches consist of skincare products.
I have been testing them out for the past couple of weeks and taking the time to observe the results. If you’re someone like me looking for glowy skin then I got you covered. Many of these products will be featured in full details later once I am done with their testing period. So here is my first impression on these newness.

Skincare:

  • Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask is a nice hydrating and soothing mask that revitalizes skin immediately. I always loved their products for the fact that they work quite amazingly on skin yet know that they’re formulated with some harsh chemicals pulled me away from them for a while but I am happy to say that Kiel’s have heard the voices and now Kiehl’s products are free of Parabens, Sulfates, and Phthalates which makes me super happy. This Mask carries that light gel-like texture and adds that nice glow to the skin immediately.
    I absolutely love the formula and it’s designed for all skin types especially for those with dryness.
  • Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops is a serum that not only hydrates skin yet it adds a nice subtle glow to the skin. I think it’s one of the most amazing launches of the year since many of us are not wearing makeup while this can be used as an amazing alternative any time of the day to add glow and hydration to the skin. When I found Glow Recipe came across a new glowy product – I knew they do it right.
    It does look after dryness with a light gel-like texture that goes deep in the skin and adds that glow that comes from within without any glitters or sparkles.
  • Lancome Refining Dual Essence Clarifique is an essence that improves skin texture, adds glow, and evens out the skin. This is something I like to get done to my skin during the winter months by adding brightening products to my skincare routine.
    Its formulated with a blend of Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid to gently exfoliate the skin and purify for clear skin which been showing amazing results on my skin.
  • It Cosmetics Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-in-Cream this is a 2 in 1 moisturizer that combats your aging concerns in one step. Its formulated with encapsulated retinol that will reach 15 layers into the skin’s surface in just 1 hour. This moisturizer looks after your dark spots, wrinkles and improves the skin’s firmness and hyperpigmentation. I started using retinol at the beginning of the year, yet
  • Good Molecules Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches are very easy to use and they’re hydrating under-eye masks that work like wonders. My under-eye wrinkles have been getting more obvious as the dryer and cooler weather been approached. Probably I never took eye patches this seriously before but I have been using them for the past two weeks religiously and I have seen a huge improvement.
  • Vichy LiftActiv Peptide-C Ampoule Serum Anti Aging Concentrate Are highly concentrated serums that are placed individually to preserve their goodness. I have been really impressed with Mineral 89 serum and very excited to test and try this since many of you wanted some drugstore skincare recommendation.
  • Loreal Revitalift 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum for Face, Fragrance-free | Revitalift Triple Power LZR + 7-Day Treatment Replumping Ampoules With 1.9% Pure Hyaluronic Acid | Revitalift Triple Power Lzr anther two items that looked very promising to me and will put it through the testing session to see how it works on my skin. This is still on my testing list since I have already started with the Vichy LiftActiv. It might take me a while till I put out a review post for this.
