New Years Makeup Update: The Book of Beauty Looks

The new spring beauty releases have started rolling in and I’m always so excited to see what the new year brings us! I dragged quite a few of the new releases to try them out and have a Sephora makeup swag to share with you today. if you are a beauty insider you have early access to many of the beauty releases. I also love the rewards and perks they offer for events and savings! if you are not a Sephora Beauty Insider however, I highly recommend signing up.

I dragged a bit of everything for eyes, lips, cheeks and complexion. This is what I’ve been testing for the last few weeks!

Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation 6 Neutral

Charlotte Tilbury has just launched her new Beautiful Skin Foundation ($44) and it’s beautiful! It is a medium coverage liquid foundation with a natural glow. It has a smooth semi-rocky finish that looks like my skin but better. It evens out my skin and lasts all day (really impressive). My partner is 6 Neutral at the moment and I love it.

NARS afterglow

NARS Afterglow Cheek Palette and Afterglow Lip Shine

NARS launched its Afterglow Collection for spring with a new palette of cheeks and highlights. The Afterglow Blush Palette ($59) has beautiful colors to bring the complexion to life. There is a pale pink highlighter and five blushes. The pigment is excellent and buildable. I’m always a bit shy when it comes to super bold shimmery shades for cheeks, but her Exhibit A blush makes for a truly stunning blush.

They also added new shades to their Afterglow Lip Shine Lip Gloss lineup ($26 each). These are some of the softest glosses I have tried with a comfortable finish and a mirror like shine. I love the moisturizing formula and the colors are stunning. Swatches of all the new shades below and another look using the Afterglow lip gloss in Orgasm which is a pretty rose gold peach shimmer.

New Natasha Denona

Natasha Denona Mini Biba Eyeshadow Palette Review and Mini Rose Cheek Duo

Natasha Denona always brings us the most beautiful palettes and highlighters! I dragged her Mini Biba Shoulder ($25) that has the perfect blend of colors for a complete eye look. She also threw a Rosy Cheeked Mini Duo ($19) with a creamy pink blush and soft highlighter. I love the texture and the colors. It’s all perfect for an elevated everyday look.

Makeup by Mario Ultra Suede Lipstick and Sculpting Lip Pencil Haul Picks

I took a few Makeup of Mario’s lip products during the holidays and I think there are some winners! The Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24) in Brielle is one of my favorites for a pretty mauve-pink shade. These have a nice velvety matte finish and lasting power. Coverage is smooth with a fuzzy look.

The Suede Ultra-Sculpted Lipsticks ($22) are also very good! They are smooth, pigmented and come in a wide range of shades. I picked three in Daniel (spicy brown), Hugh (nude pink), and Johnny (pink pink) and I think they’re super wearable on their own or with matching lipstick.

Rare beauty

I have been impressed by everything I have tried from Rare Beauty and have fallen in love with the Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ($20). I like that they have both dewy and matte finishes. I love Happy for a bright and healthy pink. Hope is a fairly everyday neutral type. Anime is a rather deeper mauve pink. They are super pigmented so a little goes a long way. They are easy to blend and have pretty good lasting power.

New Kosas

Kosas launched his new 10 Second Gel Watercolor Eyeshadow ($15) which replaced their liquid formula. I think the new one is a huge improvement in usability and ease of application. I ordered all the shades without seeing them and I think all of them can be used for a complete wash as a kind of unique eye shadow. I love them layered/mixed up, especially Heat and Blaze. Lasting power is really good with these. Once they settle they don’t move.

New to Sephora

YSL Lash Clash, Dior Lip Maximizer Serum and Chloe Naturelle Mini

The last three things I wanted to share from my tour are from YSL, Dior and Chloe. I think the new YSL Lash Clash Extreme Mascara ($29) is the best they’ve released to date. It is volumizing, ultra dark in pigment, does not flake and does not stain. It’s a winner for me!

Dior launched a new Intense Lip Maximizing Serum (a link will be added when the product is active on the site) and I love it. It has a completely different texture and finish compared to its lip enhancers. The new Lip Maximizer Serum has a serum-like feel, like a face serum, but for the lips! It has a vanilla mint scent, doesn’t tingle, and coats lips with a veil of moisture.

It may be a little early for spring fragrances, but I sprayed the new ones Chloe Naturelle Eau de Parfum and fell in love with him. I decided to buy the mini size to try it out. It’s fresh and green, similar to Chloe’s original perfume, but with a fresh, clean vibe.
