A Lovely You – Makeup Tips for Every Woman

Archive for the ‘New Beauty Products’ Category

I’m always excited when new beauty products are released, and while I can’t possibly list them all I have selected a few I think are definitely drool-worthy.

CoverGirl Blast Flipstick

This dual-sided lipstick combines two shades that can be worn alone or blended together any way you like to create your own signature lip color. I actually picked one of these up at Target in “Perky,” but they have 12 other shades to choose from. I like how you can mix and match shades to create your perfect lip look, but I especially love that these lipsticks don’t feel dry –  they’re actually pretty moisturizing. Just make sure to exfoliate your lips before applying any lipstick; if you have even a hint of dry, chapped skin this lipstick will adhere to it and make your lips look like a hot mess.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush

I want to try this blush so badly! I really like how this blush says it feels lightweight like powder blush, but that it also allegedly sinks into skin like a cream. Ulta has 10 available colors, and I’m definitely digging “Fresh Pink” and “Candy Coral,” especially since coral is such a hot color for spring.

Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette – Mi Vida Loca

I adore bright, bold shadows, and this new palette from Kat Von D is totally calling my name (but I am doing my best to resist!) The palette contains 8 eyeshadows plus a mini eyeliner so you can create a variety of looks with just one palette, which I like. The price is a bit steep, but may be worth it for anyone who wants to try out a new dramatic look.

Zoya True and Fleck Collections

The new spring 2012 nail polish collections from Zoya were recently released, and I am in love with so many of them! I haven’t managed to get my hands on any of the colors from these collections yet, but I have my eye on all of the flecks, as well as “Tru” and “Bevin” from the True collection. Totally gorgeous.

There are always new beauty products rolling onto the market at any given time, and it can be difficult to keep up! To help make your life a little easier, I’ve narrowed the  latest beauty releases down to five must-have new beauty products you absolutely must try now.

1. Hello Kitty Graffiti Eyeshadow and Blush Palette

Who doesn’t love Hello Kitty, especially when she comes in an adorable compact that includes 4 gorgeous shadows and two flattering-on-everyone blush shades? While the products will help you look gorgeous, they’re also packed with beneficial antioxidants and fruit extracts to help improve the look and feel of your skin while protecting against free radical damage. Talk about a beauty bonus!

2. Bliss No “Zit” Sherlock Breakout-Busting Rubberizing Mask

For the acne-prone gal, Bliss’s latest product launch helps your skin be smooth, revived and acne-free. The unique mask dries to a “rubber” like finish designed to help control oil, treat and prevent blemishes and leave your skin blissfully clear. Even if you only suffer the occasional break out, I recommend these masks to help make sure your skin stays that way!

($38/6, Ulta)

3. Philosophy Sugar Sprinkles Funnel Cake Lip Shine

I love Philosophy’s lip shines, and their latest addition is no exception. When you’re in the mood for something sweet, indulge in this guilt-free lip gloss that leaves a delightful sugary sweet taste on lips while moisturizing and protecting. The super rich gloss also coats lips in a beautiful, lustrous pink shine that lasts!

4. Nails Inc. Special Effects 3-D Glitter Nail Polish

Glitter polish is a hot trend for fall, and Nails Inc. latest offering brings us 4 high-shine, glittery shades that are perfect for a night on the town. Trust me, these polishes are completely different from anything you’ve used before! To obtain the 3-D effect, the company used two different particle sizes – genius!

($9.50, Sephora)

5. Lancome Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara

This mascara promises to lift, plump and extend lashes to doll-like proportions using their unique cone-shaped brush, and boy does it deliver! The brush reaches even those hard to reach lashes in the inner and outer corners of eyes, and is the perfect mascara for a flirtatious going-out look.

($25, Ulta)

While there are tons of new beauty products recently launched, these are the top 5 I recommend you try right now. Do you own any of these products? Which one is your favorite? Feel free to leave a comment, and stay lovely!
