Happy New Year!
I’ve just started sorting out my massive beauty stash – one of my resolutions is to get on top of my hoarding problem! And this got me thinking about which brands I haven’t actually tried yet, but really want to. I noticed I’ve checked a few brands off last year’s post, including Kiko, Zoeva and Sunday Riley, and I do also have some Emma Hardie products I received free with a magazine subscription that I haven’t actually used yet, and I’ve literally just picked up a couple of Lorac palettes too, so I think I haven’t done too badly really!
I’ve now put together a little hit list of beauty brands that I want to get my mitts on this year –
Fresh – I’m so glad Fresh have now come to the UK! I’ve been eyeing their gorgeous sounding products on the Sephora site for quite a while now, but never quite got round to making an order. Their lip products sound to die for, including a beautiful array of Sugar Lip Treatments (shown above) my dry lips are desperate to try these out! I’ve also noticed fragrances and candles on their site too *adds to wish list*.
Bite Beauty – Bite just make lip products, from lipsticks to glosses and primers to scrubs, and I really want to try them! Another US based brand that you can’t seem to get in the UK – hence why I haven’t tried anything from their range yet. I’ll definitely be adding some Bite goodies to my next Sephora order.
Tatcha – Another brand that’s been on my radar for a while now, Tatcha are a Japanese brand available at Sephora US, but of course not Sephora France – where us here in the UK can avoid import fees. Anyway, I’ve heard quite a few mixed reviews about this brand, some people love them and some people seem to quite dislike them. This has really just fuelled my intrigue, and I’d definitely like to give some Tatcha products a go myself. Again this is not a cheap brand, but luckily some of the products come in mini sizes for $15 each I believe, so I’ll be adding these to my Sephora basket on my next order.
Les Merveilleuses Laduree – Possibly the prettiest makeup on the planet, Laduree combines an overly girly style with almost antique looking features. Les Merveilleuses Laduree is very French, very ‘Royal’ looking – and also very expensive. One of the must-have items is the rose petal blush, which on its own is EUR 39, but then you’re going to want the pretty little matching pot to put them in (of course) and that’ll set you back another EUR 81. A few of their products seem to come in two parts like this, which is a shame really. I’ve mentioned Sephora quite a lot so far, and how infuriating is it that the above products are only available at Sephora US, and Laduree products aren’t actually available in the US, but they are in Sephora France, arrgh!
Diana Vreeland fragrances – You know those people that grab you and spray you with perfume in department stores? Well I was (gladly) accosted in Selfridges in the Summer, and left smelling wonderful. I know it was a DV fragrance, but I have no idea which one. I know I want to try more though, so next time I pop into Selfridges I’ll be checking these beautiful looking perfumes out.
And lastly, Tony Moly – SO much cuteness! Tony Moly products are just the epitome of eastern Kawaii / cute / kitsch beauty brands. Tony Moly produce a large range of beauty and skincare products, including the ever popular sheet masks, as well as lip balms in the shapes of fruits. And I have good news, you can pick up Tony Moly products from a variety of places in the UK, yay! So I’ll hopefully be trying some of these super cute products out very soon!
Have you got your eye on any new beauty brands? I’d love to hear if you have! xxx
