I personally don’t really care much about the whole ‘new year, new me’ thing, I believe what we should aim for is improvement, not re-invention. But what I do enjoy is ‘new year, new products.’ Many brands bring out new product launches with the new year and here is just a collection of the ones I am most excited for now.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Liner
The well-known brow brand has finally, after being a cult brand for many years, come out with a line of lip liners. The pencil is square, to allow for proper sharpening and what I love means it will not roll everywhere as soon as you put it down. The formula is creamy, but matte and lasts really well. There are 18 shades, mainly pinks, reds and browns, so there should be something for every skin tone.
Supergoop! Daily Dose Hydra-Ceramide Boost SPF 40
It is a moisturising face oil, that helps boost hydration and prevents skin damage by protecting against UV rays and helping reduce visible signs of pollution, blue light, and infrared radiation. I love using face oil in the mornings, and usually must pair it with an extra antioxidant serum and sunblock, but with this, it eliminates the need for several products, that all take ages to dry.
Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation
The newest product by the currently super popular Charlotte Tilbury, is a gorgeous, medium coverage foundation, infused with radiant rose complex and hyaluronic acid. It gives a beautiful glow to your skin but in a better kind of way. There are 30 shades, with different undertones from neutral, to yellow, pink, peach, and olive and more.
OPI x XBOX
Yes, you read that right, nail polish and Xbox. The collection includes 12 shades, all named after gaming terms. The shades are all along the rainbow spectrum, with pinks and reds, blues and greens and purples. Some are shimmery and glittery, others only plain cream polishes. My favourites are the shimmery pink ‘Pixel Dust’, the shimmery blue ‘You Had me at Halo’ and the berry purple ‘NOOberry’.
Diptyque Eau Rose Eau de Parfum
The newest addition to the Eau Rose line. This perfume smells super delicious. It is a rather a strong floral scent, but it also has notes of chamomile, artichoke and lichi. While they sound rather odd, when put together, they work really nicely. I find the honey-like chamomile and the green plant-y artichoke complement the rose well, and keep it from smelling old and stuffy, but more like an actual fancy rose.
