Beauty Launches – A Low Down Of The Most Exciting

A new year means a whole bunch of new beauty launches and 2018 looks to be throwing a load of exciting beauty launches directly onto our face and hair!

Gone are the days where the big beauty brands would launch new products or limited edition sets once or twice a year, we are now spoilt for choice scattered regularly throughout the year, which although is all fantastic and great I’ve found myself suffering from Beauty Burnout.

Due to this, I’ve searched the internet and all the beauty launches I could find in hope of getting my cosmetic mojo back and as a result, thought I would share with you some of my most exciting finds so far.

(forgive me purse) 

The Beauty Launches 2018 


One of the beauty launches I’m most looking forward to getting my hands on is the newly released CliniqueFIT range from (you guessed!) Clinique. This new line consists of multiple products for use before, during AND after the gym and looks to successfully bridge the gap between working out, and still wanting to look good!

Speaking from the point of view of someone who goes bright red at the meerest glisten of a sweat bead, I’m hoping this range will give me the confidence to workout and not worry about looking like a beetroot.

The range consists of –



CliniqueFIT™ Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 40

A Lightweight, sweat, humidity-proof foundation with medium coverage that gives a natural-matte finish which apparently wears for 12 hours. Not sure I would need it for that long, but even so.

Unfortunately from what I can see it only comes in four shades for now, so here’s hoping they expand on the range.

SPF 40  Oil-free.



CliniqueFIT™ Post-Workout Mattifying Moisturizer


CliniqueFIT™ Post-Workout Mattifying Moisturizer

A Lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that helps to control oil and shine, whilst keeping skin hydrated.

CliniqueFIT™ Post-Workout Neutralizing Face Powder







CliniqueFIT™ Post-Workout Neutralizing Face Powder

This colour-correcting powder instantly neutralizes and conceals redness making it for me the most exciting product in this launch!

CliniqueFIT™ Lip + Cheek Flush






CliniqueFIT™ Lip + Cheek Flush

The sheer gel (fancy way of saying gloss perhaps?) adds a healthy-looking touch of colour to lips and cheeks. Available in one shade so far – Pink In Motion.





CliniqueFIT ™ Workout 24-Hour Mascara

CliniqueFIT ™ Workout 24-Hour Mascara

Marketed as a Volumizing mascara that defines lashes, with a sweat-proof humidity resistant formula that wears for 24 hours.

Hopefully, this may be the answer to all my mascara pandan issues at the gym, I hate wearing waterproof (who has time to get that off!) so this could be a potential big win!

Allergy Tested. 100% Fragrance-Free.



CliniqueFIT™ Post-Workout Face + Body Cleansing Swipes

CliniqueFIT™ Post-Workout Face + Body Cleansing Swipes


Hot on the tail of Yuni Beauty (always sold out) shower sheets, come Clinique’s own version. These clean away excess dirt, oil and sweat whilst refreshing the skin.

Defo a must have for any gym bag.

Sheet Masks For You Hair?

The unavoidable beauty trend of last year award goes to sheet masks. These quick, easy and affordable face masks made their way directly into our skincare routines, and this year they are set to invade our hair routines!

Inspired by the forward-thinking Korean beauty industry, these hair sheet masks are yet to be launched into the UK market. But I don’t doubt we will be seeing them all over Instagram (ala face sheet) soon!


EVERPURE Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask Redken’s All Soft Mega Recovery Sheet Mask



The New Foundation Launches 





The queen of skin has released a full coverage foundation with a natural, matte finish that’s ideal for normal to oily skins. As always Bobbi’s launched with a good range of shades (30), hopefully, there will be something for everyone.









NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation



NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation

Another full coverage, but natural looking foundation here but this one is infused with raspberry, apple and watermelon extracts to help smooth texture and improve the look of your skin instantly and over time. The formula is a translucent liquid which adapts to your skin tone, to ensure your perfect colour match.

Launching in a shade range of 33.






A full coverage but fresh matte (I see the upcoming beauty trend for SS18….) finish foundation, is the newest welcome to the Dior family. Available in 26 shades I’m sure Dior will not disappoint.








Finally, I’m not one to speculate.. (Ahem) but rumour has it Marc Jacobs is set to launch his new foundation (around February) replacing the genius gel.

And if you’ve missed this teaser from a certain MUA, then here’s a treat just for you!

    My eyes were instantly drawn to the sweat proof mascara! Living in a humid climate makes it a challenge to find mascara that lasts all day. XOXO.
