Another month gone and more new products hitting our shelves here in Australia. It’s mainly make up this month but stay tuned because there are some killer skincare products hitting the shelves in May.. For now here are the best of the best from the beauty launches in April.
1. Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
After the huge Benefit They’re Real Liner launch (full review) I was surprised to see Benefit keep the Roller Lash launch fairly low key. The new addition to the mascara line has what Benefit are calling the ‘hook n roll’ brush that’ll grab the lashes, separate, lift and curl. This is a great mascara that give definition and length without any clumping what-so-ever but I do think I prefer the voluminous look of They’re Real, regardless a great everyday mascara.
2. Rimmel BB Radiance Cream
I’m a huge fan of the Rimmel BB Matte Cream and that one works really well for my combination/oily skin type so I didn’t think that this would particularly work for me. It’s not a wonder product alone because it’s so radiant and dewy it seems to become quiet oily for me towards the end of the day BUT I love mixing this with my regular foundations for a bit more of a glow especially during the cooler weather we’ve been having.
3. Viraprox Lip Balm
Not a very glamorous product to talk about but for any fellow coldsore suffers you’ll know that it can be really hard to find products that work at preventing coldsores. I’ve never found something that’ll keep them at bay without being a nuisance to remember to apply. This Viraprox is just a regular lip balm you can apply daily OR if you have one to soothe the area. The best part? It’s super moisturising and has an SPF so it’s a great lip balm with the added bonus of preventing pesky coldsores – a must have!
4. Laura Mercier Silk Creme Moisturising Foundation
For those of you who haven’t already heard my beloved Laura Mercier Silk Creme has been reformulated (tear). There are now two different versions an oil-free and an moisturising one. I haven’t got my hands on the oil-free yet but I will soon and then you can expect a full review on both in the near future. For now this version is great for anyone who found the original a little too heavy coverage (I personally didn’t). More on both formulations coming soon….
5. Clinique Beyond Perfecting 2-in-1 Concealer Foundation
This is marketed as a concealer/foundation hybrid which is an interesting concept. It’s meant to be lightweight like a concealer but still give you a really long-lasting finish. The texture of this is very light and it blends into the skin well with a dewy finish. My problem is with the lasting power. I think if you have normal or dry skin this will be amazing for you and maybe once it’s cooled down further it’ll be a product I’ll get more use out of.
6. Sally Hansen Metallic Collection
I absolutely love the Sally Hansen nail polishes so when I heard they were releasing a metallic collection for the winter I was excited. This shade is Game of Chromes and I have been loving it for an accent nail teamed with a berry shade. The formulation is opaque, not streaky at all and it isn’t too bad when it comes to removal.
7. Shanghai Suzy AW15 Lipstick Collection
My full review is here and I don’t think I need to talk about these anymore because you all know I’m obsessed. Such a fun collection and I’ve been wearing these shades exclusively.
8. Innoxa Full Colour Lip Cream
Another new edition to the lip stain craze! These are a great matte, long lasting lip cream that are very pigmented on the lips. Like other lip creams they can be slightly drying but overall a great affordable option.
