Hot New Products

 

Over the past month I have been super busy on shoots & this has given me a chance to try out lots of new makeup. Here are a few of the latest products (now on counter) that I have been using & loving!

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Two Tone Mascara

I am absolutely loving this new two in one mascara (see picture above). The concept of having black on one end & brown on the other just makes so much sense. My advice it to use the dark black on your top lashes to add length & depth of colour, then use the soft brown option on your lower lashes. I generally dont like to emphasize the lower lashes too much as it causes a shadow under the eye, so I often use a semi dry wand to add just a hint of lash. This mascara does both jobs brilliantly & I love the way that the brown end has a smaller brush for those pesky lower lashes. A brilliant mascara that I can highly recommend, not cheap at $89, but worth every penny.

Clinique Chubby Sticks

Cliniques coloured lip balms remind me of my old fashioned art crayons, as they are short & chubby (literally) & come in a range of the most gorgeous shades. They have names like Oversized Orange, Voluptuous Violet & Curvy Candy- all of these giving just a hint of sheer colour while moisturizing your lips as well. Chubby Sticks are easy to use and they dont take up much room in your purse. I think they are also the perfect girly gift. RRP $40.

 

 

Body Shop Shimmer Cubes

These shimmer cubes comes in a set of four, each being the shape & size of a small dice. I love Palette number 6, which consists of a golden bronze, deep chocolate, rosy gold & a mid toned taupe.  They have loads of colour pigment, so you dont need to use too much- I have found you can even apply them with your finger for a quick & easy eye makeup. I have been very impressed with The Body Shops latest makeup range, as the colours are all so natural & pretty, plus of course cruelty free with no animal testing.  These shadows are made in Italy & cost only $42.

 

 

Elizabeth Arden ‘Rose Aurora’ Spring collection.

You may have noticed that Rose gold is fashionable again & this is the inspiration behind Lizzie Ardens new range of makeup, inspired by Ms Ardens original colour story from the 1950′s. If you  like warm bronzes, rosy browns & soft pinks then look no further than Rose Aurora. I have been loving the Pure Finish Bronzer in ‘Warm Radiance’, as it seems to suits all skin tones. At $69 its worth it for the gorgeous retro-style rose gold compact (Im a sucker for packaging!). My other fave in this range is the pure Finish Highlighter in ‘Rose Illumination’- this gives just a hint of shimmer, while illuminating the cheeks with a pinky-gold  glow. It can also be used as an all over eye shadow. A must have summer product at only $65.

  1. All my new favourites too! I love my Clinque chubby stick! and the Body shop shimmer cubes – I need a new bronzer so will look at getting that one. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for the great feedback Sacha. I always like to trial products before I recommend them, that way I can be sure they work!
