I love new make-up, and just recently there has been a huge rise in the amount of amazing new makeup products. From magical lotions and potions to gorgeous new make up colours and styles, I’m always hunting out the next best thing and seeing how good it really is, and here are my top 7 make up productseveryone will love...
1. Murad Clarifying Cleanser Gel
Price: $34 at asos.com
I’m always wary of new cleansers and toners. After all, there are so many that surely they must all do about the same now? I was wrong, apparently! This new cleanser comes in a gorgeous squeezy bottle and is a thick gel which is easy to apply. It quickly penetrates skin, clears blemishes, fights spots and keeps skin clean and hydrated. A few days use really did make a difference to my skin!
2. Murad Body Firming Cream
Price: $52 at asos.com
After being so impressed with the cleaner, I simply had to check out a few of their other products, including this firming cream. After all, with summer just around the corner, what woman isn’t looking to tone up and look great?! The cream is thick and absorbs fast and left my skin feeling really moisturized and healthy. It was an hour later that I got my real shock, though. It really does firm skin and it looks great! I’ll be applying this everyday in the run up to summer. Fabulous bikinis, here I come!
3. Murad Acne Complex Kit
Price: $84 at asos.com
Fortunatly, I don’t suffer from nasty acne but I’ve got a lot of friends and a sister who do, so I thought I’d give my new favourite brand the chance to help them out. This kit arrived well packaged, and contains cleaner, skin perfecting cream, acne treatment gel and spot treatment. The bottles look very professional and the products smelt divine, but would they work? They do! Within days my sisters skin was looking much smoother and her acne really reduced. She was thrilled and is now a Murad convert.
4. Bellapierre Mineral Blush
Price: $50 at asos.com
I have freckles, which makes using blusher quite difficult. Even the most closely matched colour looks fake and out of place over my freckles. Until now I’ve been doing without, but this gorgeous Bellapierre mineral blush is the perfect colour and it’s sheer enough to look natural, too! I’m over the moon! It’s so easy to apply and is great when you're attempting a natural makeup look. I’d really recommend this!
5. Bellapierre Shimmer Powder Eyeshadow
Price: $21 at asos.com
Shimmery eyeshadow is hard to get right. On one hand it’s stylish and trendy, on the other you run the serious risk of looking like a child playing in Mummy’s make up. Bellapierre has the answer, though, with this stunning range of shimmers which definitely say beautiful rather then Barbie. They are easy to apply, with just enough coming through the holes to ensure even application, and they last all day too. I’ll be rocking shimmer this spring!
6. Bellapierre Mineral Lipstick
Price: $23 at asos.com
Well they got the eyeshadow and blusher right, but I’ll admit to thinking they’d got the lipstickwrong when I first saw this. The colour seems so bright and garish. But it applies like a dream and sits perfectly on your lips for a natural finish. It even complimented my skin tone, and made me look more radiant! If bright red isn’t your colour, there is a gorgeous selection of subtle pinks and browns too. Perfect!
7. Caudalie Lip Conditioner
Price: $8 at asos.com
After the harsh winds of winter, now it’s the hot sun's chance to attack our lips! And I don’t know about you guys, but I hate having dried or chapped lips, so this lip conditioner really was the answer to my prayers. It looks exactly like a lippie and is just as easy to apply and carry around, but instead of giving colour, it gives your lips an injection of health and radiance. The instant moisture hit looks great, and it lasts all day... It’s a must have!
I’ve been so impressed by these new ranges... whether it's newskincareor a new look you're after, this Spring you are certain to encounter amazing new brands and sexy new looks. I can’t wait!
