New Products For The New Year


| New Products For The New Year! | 

We're a week into the new year and I've been rearranging my beauty stash, putting away old favourites to make room for a few new beauty bits to try. I've been testing out a few products already so for today's post I thought I'd do a little roundup of what's new in my beauty routine and my first impressions of each product.

Every Christmas Eve I treat myself to a little present and this year I opted for the Fenty Beauty Match Stix in Yacht LifeThe pink hue with golden shimmer reminds me of the cult classic Nars Orgasm. I'm not usually a fan of cream blushers but this Winter my skin has become severely dry so I thought I'd ditch some of my powder formulas for a while and see if cream/liquids would be better. I've fallen in love with this formula and it's making me want to try more cream blushers this year. I also love the packaging, it's very clean and minimal whilst also being fun and girly at the same time.

Santa was very generous this year as he left the Luna by Lisa lip gloss set under my tree. The set contains four pink and nude shades that are all very wearable and it costs €30 which is reasonable enough for what you're getting. I'm not usually too fussed about lip glosses - I have a few favourites such as the Sephora own brand lip glosses and the NYX Butter glosses - but the formula of these are incredible! They're very pigmented and creamy {the texture is like a glossy lip cream}, the shades don't apply sheer like a lot of lip glosses and the staying power is pretty decent too. They're definitely worth a try!

One of my presents from my sister was the Revlon Ultra HD Lipcolour in Dawn and so far this creamy hydrating lipstick has been the perfect Winter lip product!

Another new lip addition to my new year makeup bag is Mac's Dervish lip liner. The Mac lip liners are my favourite and this classic nude hue compliments a lot of my lipsticks.

Jo Malone Red Roses

The last makeup product I've been putting to the test recently is the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions palette. The internet went crazy for these palettes when they launched recently and I'm so excited to finally have my hands on it! I've used it a couple of times so far and my initial thoughts are that the shades are beautiful and they work really well together. The shadows are also seriously pigmented - definitely, the most pigmented I've ever used - so a light hand is essential for applying them. I applied way too much of the first shade I tried and it took me ages to blend it out so do be careful of that. Once I went in with a lighter hand the next few times, I had no problems with application or blending. 

The most exciting addition to my beauty collection is my first Jo Malone fragrance. I'm so excited about it because up until last year I never had any proper perfumes, I always used body mists because I was just never really into perfumes. But after I tried a few samples of some perfumes I fell in love with them and I'm starting a little collection now. I went for the Red Roses scent which is a sweet floral scent - my favourite kind!

I bought a Clinique Moisture Surge gift set in the post-Christmas sales because it has a full-size of my all-time favourite moisturiser in it. The set also contains one of their chubby stick lip colour balms, a mini Moisture Surge overnight mask as well as a mini hydrating supercharged concentrate. Before I bought the set I bought the Moisture Surge overnight mask so now I have a full size and a mini but I absolutely love the range so it's great to have a backup!

What products would you most like to try this year?

Love,
Cliona xx
