Well it's already October and as always we have some fabulous new beauty products and names launching this month.Here's a little peek at what you can look forward to – make sure you check back as there's more to come!
Frontcover – Tartans, Plaids and Tweeds Eye Shadow
Frontcover are an ingenious British make-up brand who are able to, and specialise in developing products that will go with current runway fashion trends. British fashion designers are revered the world over which is why many of the top European fashion houses have their head designers poached from the showcase of London Fashion Week.
Add to that our heritage of incredible, natural wool fabrics originating in cottage industries over the centuries, this kit is a celebration and a chance to complement the winter fabrics of tweeds, tartans and plaids in the textures and colours of your eyes.
The collection includes baked powder shadows which can be used wet and dry to create texture, you can imprint one over the other to create pattern for the high fashion fabric look or just use individual colours to celebrate the amazing tones of your winter clothes.
This kit is so much more interesting than the staple brown eye shadow that, if you are stuck in a rut, you reach for during the winter months. It can inspire with instructions and photos and great on-air demos.
Becca, founded by Rebecca Morrice Williams is celebrated by fellow artists and beauty editors around the world for successfully achieving the original aim of creating premium, luxury make-up formulas that give an artistry finish that is easy to apply.
Becca is perhaps most famous for creating and celebrating your natural skin tone, bringing it to life and making it look healthy. This is exactly where the new Shimmering Skin Perfector fits in. A generous 50ml size, in the first of a collection, being the Opal Colour (watch this space for more to come).
On first application, don’t be deceived, as it looks like a pumper foundation but this does not need to match your skin tone. When massaged into the skin, in any of its multi-tasking ways, it can be used alone, as a make-up base or primer, mixed with your foundation or added on top of foundation or BB Cream to highlight cheeks etc.
The dryer and/or the older your skin, you will prefer to use it neat and if you are very tired or fatigued from work, children, illness etc. this really wakes up the look of your skin and gives a healthy, jewel-like sheen, created by ultra-fine, light reflecting pearls to give a very glowy, soft look.
If you have shinier or oily skin, you may prefer to use this just as a highlighter. Through the winter months, it will definitely make us all look more awake and will be perfect to bring all skin tones to life for the party season.
Bobbi Brown is perhaps our most coveted and aspirational make-up brand, not least because she is famous the world over for being the first artist to create colour to enhance women rather than enforcing a fashion look.
Bobbi has always also celebrated and offered products for all skin tones and ethnicities to bring out the natural beauty in all of us. Bobbi’s products are incredibly high quality, long lasting and still today her shades, colours and textures are hand-picked by her.
We are very excited at QVC because her much-awaited holiday collections are being launched nationally with us first so you can beat the store frenzy and prices by shopping with us. Plus you can take advantage of the live demonstrations of one of her hand-picked and trained international artists as our special guest, to help you choose which limited edition, coveted make-up must-have you need for this winter.
You can choose from:-
Nude Glow Shimmer Brick – This is a new twist on her multi award-winning Shimmer Brick and a must-own to complement your jewellery. They can be used as shadows, individual highlighters and when swirled together with a big brush, give that famous Bobbi sheen on the cheek. A must-have as far as I am concerned.
Smokey Eye Kit – this kit comes in either Smokey Black which features cooler tones and black liners with both matt and sparkle with platinum, graphite and truffle shades and perfect for a bolder eye and cooler-toned jewellery. Or Smokey Brown which has some amazing blonde, gold and chiffon tones for a warmer, softer eye, great with gold jewellery.
Each one comes with a mini Smokey Eye Mascara which has the most divine brush which hugs the lashes and a Bobbi Brown Artistry Card to create the look yourself. The difficulty is going to be deciding which to choose.
Day to Night Lip and Eye Palettes – These are such quick and easy make-up must-haves for on-the-go, containing shadows and lip colours in both soft and dramatic shades in these palm-sized palettes making them the ultimate make-over on-the-go collection, perfect as a gift idea and definitely one to own yourself if you have a busy party season planned. Choose the ‘Pretty’ palette for paler skin or for those that prefer a softer look, and choose the 'Glamour' palette for either richer skin tones or those that are colour confident.
Smokey Eye Mascara – We are very excited to have the UK launch of Bobbi’s latest formula about which she says "This season's smokey eye is all about mega lashes and richly pigmented liner". Bobbi has designed this new formula and brush with super-saturated kajal pigments with extreme black colour and a rich creaminess that is easy to apply. It has an ultra-resistant, long wear formula which stands up to sweat and humidity without smudging (but is easy to remove).
She genuinely has achieved an easy to apply dramatic look mascara and you can feel the perfect marriage of the formula and the brush working together instantly from the first coat. Even just one coat looks fab, two coats definitely gives drama. I am already requesting a duo!
