The moment I’ve been waiting for… For all the beauty brands to finally launch their Spring collection!
Clarins, Spring Make-up Collection 2016
Clarins is one of those brands where I really look forward to seeing their new collection, mainly for 1 product in particular: the “Ombre Iridescente” eye shadow pots! Ever since it launched for the first timer (2 years ago), I’ve been obsessed with them. Every season they come out with different shades and for spring they’ve released two new shades, a silver green and silver ivory, both in a metallic finish. Click here to see the full review of the eye shadow pots. The other products that also really enjoy from this collection is the new lipstick and neutral eye shadow palette. If you’re a fan of the brand, definitely make sure you check out their spring collection, as I’m pretty sure you’ll find some interesting products.
“Rouge Eclat” Lipstick #25 Pink Blossom
“5 Color Eye Shadow Palette” #03 Natural Glow
“Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector” (Lip Gloss) #08
“Ombre Iridescente Eyeshadow” #04 Silver Ivory & #06 Silver Green
MAKE UP FOR EVER, Ultra HD Range
If you loved their HD collection, then you’re definitely going to love their Ultra HD range. The range is an improved version of the HD collection and I personally find it easier to work with. The products are more blend able and does a great job at blurring out imperfections on camera.
Ultra HD “Foundation Stick” #Y225
Ultra HD “Foundation Stick” #Y505
Ultra HD “Invisible Cover Concealer” #R20
Ultra HD “Invisible Cover Concealer” #Y33
Clinique, “Colour Pop” Lip Colour + Primer
Shades: #16 Grape Pop | #22 Kiss Pop | #20 Sugar Pop
If you haven’t tried these lipsticks yet, you’re missing out big time. I already loved these lipsticks since they first launched but now they’ve added 8 new shades to the collection, which makes it 24 shades in total. They vary from nudes, bold and bright hues in a very creamy texture. Click here to see the full review of these Pop Lip Colour lipsticks
NARS, Hot & Sand Collection
If you want to look like a bronzed, dewy goddess during winter, I highly recommend this limited edition collection by NARS. It features new highlighters in a cream and powder formula and the nude/gold lip gloss goes well with the entire collection.

It’s always exciting when Dior releases a new product or collection. This time they’ve launched new “Diorksin“ products, which are meant to create the perfect skin. Whenever I wear a full face of Dior make-up, I feel like a billion dollar. Not only is the packaging luxurious, but also the product itself. My favorite product of this launch so far is the face cream. I would describe the texture more like a gel rather than a cream. Its quite light weighted which is perfect for my oily skin; it feels refreshing to the skin and gives a beautiful radiance. So far, I’ve only tried the products individually just because the foundation didn’t match me because I was too pale. Now I’m tanned and the foundation color is very close to my complexion so I have yet to test them out all together and I’ll definitely share my opinion again. Personally I think you can never go wrong with Dior make-up, their products are always on point and so is this new launch.
“Capture Totale Multi-perfection Crème”
“Diorskin Forever” Fluid Foundation #023
“Diorskin Forever & Ever Control” Invisible Loose Powder #001
MAC Cosmetics X Ellie Goulding Collection
MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with singer Ellie Goulding to create a limited edition collection. You’ve probably already seen the collection in the MAC stores across the region. I’m not too crazy about the blush and bronzer duo, just because it’s too light for my complexion. All 3 lip products on the other hand are to-die-for! The shades are so pretty and very spring appropriate. I also really like the eye shadow palette, I mean; can you ever go wrong with a neutral palette?
Powder Blush Duo #I’ll hold my breath
Lipstick #Only you
Lip Glass #Goodness Gracious
Patent Polish Lip Pencil #Revved
Marc Jacobs, The Velvet Noir Mascara
The highly anticipated mascara by Marc Jacobs is finally about to launch in the Middle East! I didn’t like the previous mascara from MJ but it seems like the brand has improved their products and this mascara definitely lives up to the hype. The mascara will be available across the region starting from April 2016.
Too Faced, “Born This Way” foundation
Shades: #Sand | #Golden | #Warm Beige
Ever since Too Faced launched these new foundations, beauty gurus all over the globe have been raving about them. The finishing of these foundations is very photo friendly as it burrs out any imperfections. It’s oil-free and contains coconut water (interesting ingredient). It offers a medium to full coverage and the texture feels light weighted. The “Born This Way” foundation comes in 18 shades in total.
Courreges by Estee Lauder
Estee Lauder just gave birth to a new baby: Courreges. It’s a 13-piece limited edition collection that comes in this, almost futuristic packaging. It’s definitely unique and something you don’t see everyday. After testing out the products I could definitely tell that a lot of thought has been put into the packaging and quality of these products. Naturally, Kendall Jenner is the face of it. The collection is only available for a limited time and it’s already available in the Middle East at Estee Lauder counters.
