New season means lots of new products!

Autumn/winter is coming and with that comes lots of new colours and products which excites me no end.

I get far more excited about updating my makeup bag or bathroom cabinet than I do about my clothing and this week I have a great selection of products, all at different price points. The beauty and cosmetic world evolve at lightning speed as innovation keeps us looking youthful and fresh!

Clarins is launching a new serum which is aptly named Plant Gold and contains 100 per cent plant extracts. The first oil-emulsion from Clarins combines its iconic Blue Orchid Treatment Oil with a 100 per cent natural origin melting emulsion which blend together on application to create lightweight, non-oily texture with a natural aromatic fragrance. It melts into the skin.

To add to this, Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation (€40) gives a flawless finish to skin that lasts through the 9 to 5. The radiance doesn’t suffer though, with the long wear, which is impressive as many times with a base designed to last, it can be powdery.

If you want the perfect brush or blender to apply then fear not, the ergonomic design and superior quality of Blenders take buffing foundation, contour and highlight to the next level, making it comfortable and easy to apply seamless layers of makeup.

The Foundation Blender (€14.99) has tightly packed bristles and a grip to allow for seamless application of foundation. The domed shape of the brush head helps blend smoothly and evenly on the skin.

Get your favourite Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sugar Crush Sponge (€7.99) in three limited edition sparkling pink hues. With the same quality and design as the award-winning sponge, its rounded side blends larger areas of the face, whilst the precision tip covers imperfections and the at edge contours around the eyes/nose.

Dermalogica Phyto–Nature Firming Serum (€156) is something different from Dermalogica. It provides both firming and lifting qualities, powered by sapphire-bound bio-mimetic peptides to help firm skin and reinforce skin defences. The peptides are bound to sapphire to shield from oxidation and increase bioavailability as they work to mimic qualities of skin that decline with ageing. It smells divine and is such a treat for your skin.

Ten!sational 10 In 1 Dream Primer from Catrice (€6.90) is an all-in-one primer that unites ten benefits in a single product. The lightweight texture primes the skin, blurs imperfections and evens out the skin tone. Pores are optically minimised and the appearance of wrinkles is visibly softened. This Dream Primer hydrates the skin and provides a natural glow.

How about adding a little glamour and glory to your nails? The Catrice new effect nail polish range lets beauty addicts create magnificent nails with a luxurious sparkling effect. The range contains eight shades with two different effects (€3.95), tone in tone and multitone with gold. All of them have a light reflecting and shiny finish. Application is easy thanks to the fan-shaped brush and two thin layers will offer full coverage.

Nuxe Crème Prodigieuse Boost is a collection of five skincare products to act against the effects of a hectic lifestyle; stress, tiredness and pollution on the skin. My two picks from the range are Multi-Correction Eye Balm Gel (€27) which helps to conceal signs of an insufficient night’s sleep. In a single step, it targets dark circles and puffiness to refresh the eyes. It’s not heavy and won’t cause the eyes to puff.

Night Recovery Oil Balm (€38) works to maintain skin mechanisms during the night for a luminous complexion in the morning. Despite the name, it isn’t heavy, it absorbs easily and quickly and smells just as good as all Nuxe products.
