Spring 2016 – Bobbi Brown Skin Nourishing Glow

Bobbi Brown’s Bobbi Brown Skin Nourishing Glow Foundation will be launching during the end of 2015, and in the first two months of 2016 – in December, it rolls out to Japan.  In January, the USA, and in February, Europe.

The product is a “hybrid cream foundation” designed for dry and  normal skin types – it is both emollient and lightweight, and promises to diminish lines and wrinkles, as well as leave you luminous.  

Apparently it also manages to give a firmer, lifted look, and promote natural collagen by way of “six unique peptides technology.”

The finish is soft matte, and skin is left soothes and moisturized – that’s a lovely combination, if you ask me!  

Spring 2016 – NARS Nouvelle Vogue (Update)

A fun Instagram update with more products (I have seen those great palettes in other posts already – beautiful!) Snagged this from BeautyLogicBlog

And here is my original post!

Spring 2016 – NARS Nouvelle Vogue

NARS Spring 2016 Collection, Nouvelle Vogue,  will be launching in just a few short weeks on January 15th, both in-store and online at narscosmetics.com, and at Sephora and select retailers beginning February 1st.

Spring 2016 – NARS Nouvelle Vogue

The colors are generally pretty soft and toned-down, pairing dusty rose and beige with a splash of cool mint and rich blue for a modern sophisticated look.

Per NARS:

“The new wave of chic. Seasonal shades suit up for resort mode with high-sun and high-style.

For Spring 2016, NARS debuts a fresh and modern mix of seasonal shades and innovative textures for eyes, cheeks and lips. Orchid blush radiates from a natural, matte complexion and lips captivate in shimmering apricot, rose and mulled wine. Eyes mesmerize in icy mint, matte beige and bronzed rose tones paired with a bold, winged liner. The must-have of the season: Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in a sumptuous, versatile spectrum that can be applied dry for a sophisticated sheer effect, or wet for a dramatic, high-shine finish.”

The Collection will include:

DUAL-INTENSITY EYESHADOW

  • Tarvos Icy mint
  • Cressida Shimmering midnight blue
  • Kari Soft rose pink

Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion

The name is quite the mouthful but it seems to be worthy of whatever length Armani chooses, based on the word of mouth!  Giorgio Armani Maestro Glow Nourishing Fusion Makeup Bi-Phase Elixir SPF30 is the newest to the Armani foundations, and will be launching in February, 2016 online.

Many thanks to ReallyRee for sharing more information about it, as well as her review, since there isn’t as much out there yet!  The benefits of this newbie – gorgeous glow aside – includes:

  • Nourishing bi-phase formula
  • Super light texture
  • Perfecting buildable coverage
  • Like original Maestro it is free from water
  • High concentration of nourishing oils
  • 3 oils released over time and composed like notes of a fragrance
  • Non-oily effect
  • NASA technology enables the absorption of excess oils
  • Leaves skin feeling supple
  • SPF30 for daily protection
  • 9 shades

Given the incredible, global success of the other formulations – AND their always-gracing-It-Lists status, I’d say this is worth checking out.  They aren’t inexpensive but a little does go a long way.  I haven’t tried them myself simply because I am active every day – while they are purportedly divine, I’d feel badly sweating it off so quickly…or getting it all over someone else’s gi!

Spring 2016 – L’oreal

BudgetBeautyBlog posted some great info and images of the up-and-coming L’oreal goodies, all of which appear to be launching in February 2016.

You can find my post about the L’Oreal Lumi Cushion here, which will be launching in 12 shades, and you can see more images and notes from the link above… 

The Infallible Pro-Contour Contour & Highlight Palette is next up, coming in three shades.  I’ll be honest, the image doesn’t wow me too much…I feel like they are late to the contour party.  There, I said it!  Anyway…  The compact appears to have a contour shade, and highlight shade…and a likely a sponge or brush for application (as many other compacts of this ilk from L’Oreal.)

There will be 15 shades of ColourRiche eyeshadows…and they look like they are pigment dense, based on one of the blogger’s swatches… As well as 10 Pro Matte Infallible Glosses (which may, or may not be, a re-promote from 2015’s Spring lineup.)

And there will even be new haircare…which, despite the ARSENAL of products I own, I am excited for!  The one shown in her post is an Oil Shampoo for dry and lifeless hair in need of nourishment – it’s loaded with some powerhouse ingredients (curious to see where they fall on the actual ingredient list, of course!)  I am betting there will be a few more items in the haircare division, as they never really launch just one… But then, perhaps it is just an extension of the Extraordinary Oil series for now.

Lots of newness, which is always exciting each season… I promise myself I won’t get anything else because WHY do I need it?! (I DON’T!)…  But it is such fun!!!
