I haven't been grabbed by new cosmetics launches for a while (I'm rarely excited by the seasonal collections from the major brands) but there are a few new things that have either just come out or are about to that do so have me hopping with anticipation:
rms Beauty Karma cream eyeshadow - dark brown/black cream eyeshadow with silver shimmer. I've been hoping for a darker cool shade of cream eyeshadow from rms Beauty, and this sounds perfect.
RGB cosmetics HIPP foundation colours. These were launched by RGB last year, but Mise Beauty has just gotten them in. I need F1. The Autumn/Winter 2011 shades have also just arrived, and Camp, a mossy zombie green, looks very good to me.
RGB is my favourite nail polish brand. They're actually 4 free - they don't contain camphor, as well as leaving out formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. You wouldn't know it by application (the opaques are fully opaque in two coats, and the sheers apply evenly) or longevity (I can wear for 5 days without any major chipping, and I'm not kind to my fingers although my nails are very short, which helps.) The bright and unusual colours in cream formulations are exactly to my taste too (there are a few shimmers in the range, but they are mostly creams.) At £11.50 they're not ridiculously expensive either. I love the RGB website with all the shades laid out to drool over.
Ilia Beauty are launching quite a few new products, following on from the successful launch of their tinted lip conditioners last year (I've been wearing the berry stain Arabian Knights very regularly.) They are bringing out full coverage lipsticks, a lip balm and lip exfoliator, lip & cheek cream colours and illuminators.
The bright red Wild Child lipstick calls to me (of course). I'm also very tempted by the hot pink Neon Angel.
www.rgbcosmetics.com and www.iliabeauty.com. All three brands are available from www.misebeauty.com and www.beingcontent.com has rms Beauty and Ilia Beauty.
