Once again I have an exciting preview of things to come in 2015 from Essence and Catrice
First up, my top picks from Catrice
Velvet Matt Smokey Eyes Pencil
The three new eye pencils with an integrated brush applicator create various styles in the nearly-black shades violet-black, khaki and night blue. The smooth and supple texture can be blended easily with the brush and the semi-matt finish gives everyday looks a whole new charm. Available in three colours. I do love me a smokey eye!
Made To Stay Inside Eye Khôl Kajal
The new Khôl Kajal is an eyeliner pencil specially developed for the waterline. With its deep-black, waterproof texture, expressive and long-lasting results are easy to achieve. The soft pencil can be kept in shape with the help of an integrated sharpener. Opthalmologically tested. Available in one shade. I feel naked when I haven’t lined my waterline, so this is really really exciting!
Lash Boost – Lash Growth Eyeliner Pen
The deep-black texture of the Lash Growth Eyeliner Pen contains active ingredients that promote lash growth – so this Eyeliner Pen ensures additional length as well as perfect eyeliner looks! Test results confirm 9% growth after just four weeks of daily application. The practical pen-shape and flock applicator allow an easy as well as accurate application. How awesome does this sound!
The Illuminating Blush combines two different colour-intensities with a subtle shimmer and a light pearl. This accentuates the cheekbones as well as giving your complexion definition and a soft glow. Available in a total of three colours. I neeeed these, all three!
The professional kabuki brush made of thick, synthetic bristles smoothly applies loose or pressed powder and bronzer. The soft, synthetic bristles feel wonderfully pleasant as they glide across your skin. I haven’t tried any brushes from Catrice, and a girl can never have enough brushes, right?
And now my top picks from Essence
This new gloss pampers the lips with valuable aloe vera so that they feel wonderfully soft and supple. Beautiful pastel shades including beige, apricot and purple offer a subtle touch of colour and a shiny finish. Available in a total of seven colours. These look pretty cute!
Pure NUDE Powder
The new pure NUDE powder skillfully unites a matte texture with soft shimmer pigments to give your complexion a gorgeous matte finish with a subtle glow effect. The velvety-soft, baked powder texture offers a natural, light coverage. Available in a total of four shades for various skin types. These look very similiar to MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, a possible dupe by Essence?
Sun Club 2-in-1 Bronzing Powder
The new Sun Club Bronzing Powder conjures-up a light tan on your face and neckline. The powder is available in two versions: the lighter, matte version of the bronzer is combined with pink blush for a fresh and radiant complexion while the darker, matte bronzer is combined with a highlighter for gorgeous, shimmering accents.Once again, I neeeeed both of these! Similiar to the Stila Countless Colour Pigments, although those are for eyes.
How to Make Your Face Glow Make-up Box
A subtle shimmering highlighter, a bronzing powder with a shimmer and a pink blush – the box unites the ideal products for a perfect look. Thanks to the integrated applicator and the styling card with step-by-step instructions, it’s easy to create a radiant look. I really hope we get these here in SA!
And that is it Ladies!
We leave tomorrow for my long awaited holiday to Thailand and Malaysia, so posts are likely to be few and far between, but I will try schedule a couple before I leave.
Happy Festive Season! See you in the New Year!
