I find it almost impossible to stay up to date on what new products are coming out that I might be interested in, or even what products have just had a bit of an update. So, I’m glad that the SheerLuxe magazine takes on that task for me. At the beginning of each month, they have an article listing the top beauty launches. It’s great to see a nice little list of new stuff, plus links where I can buy the products or read more about it.
SheerLuxe has listed 13 new or updated beauty products to be aware of in April. Obviously, it is always a different list but they cover fragrances, makeup, skin care, and hair care products, as well as tools and accessories. They list all types of brands – big and small – too, and some I’m sure you won’t necessarily know about. Not all of the products are going to wow you, but it’s always nice to read about what’s new and maybe find out about a new yet-to-be-discovered favourite.
This month I am particularly interested in the Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick for £29.00 (at John Lewis). The reviews at John Lewis for the previous version are pretty glowing and make me think that I am going to have to get one of these soon. I like the idea of a stick foundation because it is the ultimate in portable and would be great for travel. Plus, it is ideal for a quick touch up when you’re out all day. I’ve been looking for a good stick foundation for a while but a lot of them are too heavy feeling for me or feel greasy or just don’t look right on the skin. From the reviews and the fact that this is a InStyle Best Beauty Buys winner, it seems like this might be just what I have been looking for.
The other product they list that has my interest piqued is Japonesque Solid Brush Cleaner Balm for £16.00 (at John Lewis). This is a solid brush cleaner that is made with goat’s milk and can quickly clean your brushes without a big mess. Plus, it conditions your brushes too, so you don’t have to worry about using it to clean your best quality brushes. I have a similar product from a different company that I find really easy to use and love but it is a bit more pricey than this so when I run out I will definitely be trying this one instead. Not only is it less mess but it is actually faster and definitely cleans my brushes better as well. It makes it much more likely that I will clean my brushes as frequently as they really need it too. Since this is a solid product, it is very easy to take with you when you travel too.
Those are my two favourites from the SheerLuxe roundup of new beauty products this month, but there are 11 other ones that they list that might be something just perfect for you. Be sure to check out the list and sign up for their newsletter if you like their style of presenting information. I find the daily newsletter really interesting and often leads me to things I like or want or needed to hear about.
