The beauty launches tend to quieten down over Winter but we’ve still found some new products to tide us over until the Spring and holiday collections come at us. From the luxe beauty brand that’s made its way to New Zealand, to the eyeliner you need in your life.
Tom Ford Beauty, available from David Jones in Wellington & coming soon to Smith & Caugheys
Tom Ford has finally arrived on our shores with its first counter opening in Wellington at the end of last month. Their signature fragrances are here as well as their highly-sought after lipsticks. There’s something in this line-up for every beauty enthusiast. We can’t wait for their flagship counter to open at Smith and Caugheys later in the year.
YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer
YSL’s iconic touché éclat pen has inspired a new primer. Don’t let the gold sparkles throughout scare you. They don’t translate to anything glittery or vampire-esque on the complexion. Instead, this primer smooths and perfects the skin, making it ideal for any base you apply over the top. It also helps to keep your complexion shine-free for longer, making it perfect for combination-oily skin types.
Clinique Pop Matte Lip Color & Primer
Clinique have jumped on board the matte lipstick train with their latest additions to the Pop Lip collection. There’s a range of hues to choose from here; from your statement reds and pinks, to the more everyday friendly nude. The finish on these is velvety smooth and you can expect a lip colour that is long wearing without flaking away. We love the shade Cute Pop, a brown-based nude with a dusky rose tone to it.
Estee Lauder Blushing Crème for Lips and Cheeks, exclusive to Farmers
We love multi-use beauty products like this one. They’re so convenient if you’re on the go and don’t want to carry an excessive amount of makeup with you. These blush sticks have a little bit of a sheen to them so they give your cheeks that dewy, healthy glow. On the lips they’re a bit sheerer so you can swipe them on without too much fuss.
Lancome Grandiose Liner
If liquid eyeliner makes you want to run away, reconsider running until you’ve tried this product. Lancome’s new eyeliner is angled so you can get super close to the lashline and in to the pesky inner-corners without drawing a thick, dramatic line halfway up your eyelid. It’s incredibly easy to use and will make you want to do feline flicks all the time.
