Beauty products to be in the know about

  Tuesday 13th March 2012

The sun is shining and the weather is sweet – this must mean spring is close and with it comes a whole new range of makeup to bring in the season. YSL has chosen the perfect pastel colours in their Manicure Couture Nail Polish Duo, No.8, with a choice of punchy orange and neon pink to mix and match. These miniature nail polishes come complete with a “fan-shaped” panoramic brush for the optimal brush stroke, and are travel size and practical so they can be carried in your bag to use whenever. If you’re having difficulty choosing which colour to use, might we recommend following the latest trend: have an orange base and pink tips or vice versa! It’s fun, trendy and allows you to use both colours.

Shu Uemera has recently released its Spring/Summer 2012 collection of creamy dome blushers as part of their Celestial Garden campaign and comes in two colours: pink and peach. The limited edition cream blush glides on your skin, courtesy of its dome shape, and helps to achieve perfect coverage to give your skin that professional finish. It can be applied directly on to your skin with its roll-on applicator or can be applied with a brush. The blush has a smooth, satin-like texture that will leave you feeling fresh and ready to start your day or night.

It costs £20 from the Shu Uemera website,  which you can visit by clicking here.

The first ever refillable mascara has arrived and it comes in the name of Guerlain. Unexpected? Yes. The mascara comes in a metallic case, which is complete with a mirror. The mascara gives lashes every girl wants: from volume, ultra length, maximum curve on your lashes, easy to apply and carry – oh and it can be refilled (6.5g). It’s the mascara that you have been waiting for and are dying to try. It offers every bit of luxury your lashes need and will leave your lashes looking fabulous.

The fresh, new fragrance from Jo Malone called English Pear & Freesia, is the perfect smell for spring. This perfume has the added extra of containing patchouli and amber to help bring out the pear scent. It has a beautiful rose edge, which adds a dimension to it. This fragrance is an elegant mix of fruit and floral, which will linger on your skin throughout the day. The pear is a perfect combination of sweet and crisp, and the freesia and patchouli give the fragrance its blossom finish.

It costs £36 from the Jo Malone website, which you can visit by clicking here.
