A couple of companies have been hinting and releasing pictures of new upcoming Spring collections in the past couple of days. I recommend googling Nars Spring 2015 if you want to see amazing pictures of their upcoming Nars Dual Intensity shadow palette (which is a palette with 8 of their popular Dual Intensity shadows. It will hit Sephora February 1st (just in time for a birthday gift to myself!).
Another collection recently released is 4 items from Too Faced. They are already available on their site and one is already at Sephora. I will post pics from the Too Faced website along with their price and description.
First is a new variation of their much loved Chocolate Bar palette, this is their Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette. These colours are much more warm toned compared to the original one. The website says: “Indulge your beauty craving with 16 antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder-infused matte and shimmer shades of warm caramels, deep mochas, bronzy chocolate hues and a pop of sugared blueberry.” This looks like a beautiful palette. It keeps the cocoa enriched formula which is a big seller in the original palette. It makes the palette smell great and the shadows are creamy and blend very well. I do not own the original, but I will be swatching these in store next time I go and I might have to buy one of the two.

Next are two blush/bronzers and I have to say the packaging is beautiful. The website says: “Bronzer and Blush: the power couple of beauty. This duo made in makeup heaven adds warmth, contour and a pop of color for the radiant look of true love.”
These are called Soul Mates Blushing Bronzer. This is a picture of the shade called Carrie & Big. These cute heart shaped bronzers are named after famous TV couples. This one is of course Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big from Sex and the City. This one has the blush in a coral/ peachy shade.
The second one has a more pink shade of blush in the bronzer. It is called Ross & Rachel named after Ross Geller and Rachel Green from Friends. This is a beautiful shade of blushing bronzer, I might have to swatch and add to my collection eventually. While they only have two of these posted so far, with the whole TV romance idea they could do so many couples.

Next is a lash duo called Better Than False Lashes Extreme Instant Lash Extension Kit. This kit includes a mascara, and a second step tube with fibre lash extensions. This is similar to the two step method of Younique lashes that Younique sales rep sell. You put on the fibres from the tube and it makes it look like you have longer, fuller lashes, without using extensions or falsies. The website says: “No glue, all glam! Our instant lash extension kit features new and improved formula, brush and fibers for ridiculously longer and thicker lashes!”

Too Faced also added new shades to their Melted Liquified Lipsticks line. They already had 10 (Melted Nude, Melted Coral, Melted Fuchsia, Melted Peony, Melted Ruby, Melted Violet, Melted Marshmallow, Melted Fig, Melted Candy and Melted Berry). The website says: “Get the staying power of a stain, the intense color of a liquid lipstick and the high shine of a gloss with Melted.” I have tried Melted Berry and I love it! I will post the pictures of the 8 new shades starting from the pale nude ones to the most daring ones.
This is the shade Sugar. It is a super nude brown shade. It is looks like it is almost skin coloured for me. I would probably not buy this shade for my skin tone, but it looks beautiful.
Next is Chihuahua. It is a lovely pink/nude shade. I would probably buy this colour. It looks really sharp and nice.
Next is Frosting. It is a beautiful light pink shade. It looks almost peach in tone.
Next is a beautiful shade called Melon. It looks like a bright pink peach colour. I will definitely need to swatch this one. He looks beautiful for spring and summer months.
Next is Jelly Donut. It is a beautiful bright pink shade. It is a pink-fuchsia mix that looks daring, but not too out of the box.
Next is Strawberry. This is a beautiful pink toned red. It looks amazing. I will be swatching this one too. It looks amazing.
This is the second last one and it is called Velvet. It is a lovely velvety red colour. It reminds me of Red velvet cupcakes, which is probably the point.
Last, but definitely not least, is Villain. It is a beautiful deep purple/blue shade. I love the look of this colour. It is probably not one I would buy (I like natural colours) but it is a gorgeous and I would probably try it once.
