Guerlain has announced the launch of its Spring Glow Collection 2016, available nationwide from February. A focal point in the collection is the Météorities Base Perfecting Pearls (£46), which provides a radiant glow that can be used around the eyes and on the cheeks or as a primer. The base has been reborn in a new, faceted crystal clear bottle that contains a gel formula with rosy pearl floating in suspension. When applied to the skin, the microspheres diffract UV rays and reflect the light in a new direction. The new Météorites Voyage Exceptional Compacted Pearls of Powder (£108) features compacted micro pearls in five different colours, produced by hand to brighten areas of shadow and make the curves of the face catch the light. Also in the range is the Rose aux Joues Blush Duo Limited Edition (£43.50), which combines a satiny red with a pink encased in a metallic red case; The Eye Pencil Long-Lasting (£20), available in five shades; and KissKiss Creamy Shaping Lip Colour (£27), offering two new shades: 371 Darling Baby and 372 All About Pink.
Rouge In Love is the new collection from Skeyndor. The collection includes the Stay Satin Matte Lipstick (£21.00) a comfortable, creamy cosmetic stick containing Candelilla wax, the vegan alternative to beeswax and Coco-Caprylate the plant-derived alternative to silicones. This leaves the lips feeling silky and soft, with no greasy residue. Available in the shades ‘Marsala’ and ‘Delicate Red’. The Instant Perfection Concealer in light and dark (£21.00) provides full coverage for a natural and luminous face, the concealer corrects imperfections, diminishes signs of tiredness, whilst also having that hint of illuminating formula. The Continuous Aqua Foundation (£27.50) comes in Light and Dark too.
