Spring products I need NOW!


I have to admit there are a number of Spring makeup launches that I’m pretty meh on. None of the eyeshadow palettes I’ve seen announced pique my interest and the BITE Lip Lab lipstick launch this month sold out within 2 hours, before I’d even had a chance to find out about it! I was starting to think that Spring would be easy on my wallet and I’d spend the time reviewing the piles of products I have built up awaiting review. Then this week happened… There are a few products that have been announced this week that I absolutely NEED!

Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection – This is an ingenious idea! For years I wore dry mascaras that made my eyelashes brittle and made another coat of mascara a few hours later impossible. I’ve been wearing wetter, softer mascaras that are meant to be buildable lately so it’s a little more feasible for me to add on later but it’s still not perfect. This looks like it would be an eyelash HG for me. The few reviews I’ve seen of it so far are favorable.

There are a lot of things in this world that you can’t take back–like that spontaneous decision to put a skunk stripe in your hair post-breakup (yes, WZ did that). While we don’t have a time machine, Mascara Resurrection from Urban Decay is the next best thing. The ultimate do-over, this clear refreshing serum brings your mascara back to life so you can keep piling it on. Like a killer lash comb in liquid form, our revolutionary formula combs through lashes to soften mascara and get your lashes ready for another coat. There’s NOTHING else like it! Mascara Resurrection instantly revives your mascara as it separates and defines each lash. Want to top off your mascara later in the day? A quick coat of this serum makes lashes pliable and ready for more. If you botched your mascara or didn’t pull it through well, simply comb Mascara Resurrection through your lashes to refresh, then reapply mascara.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer – I’m always on the search for a better concealer. I have huge issues with even “crease-proof” concealers creasing under my eyes so I’ve tried so many… I like the other Naked Skin products I’ve tried so far (I use the BB cream and foundation already) so when I saw this was coming I squee’d just a little inside… ok a lot!

Your secrets may not be the stuff of celebrity gossip headlines, but let’s face it: We’ve all got things to hide. Not to worry; we’ve got your back. Urban Decay introduces Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. Our weightless formula gives you full coverage in an instant. A liquid concealer like no other, our high-tech formula melds like a second skin–to cover imperfections without making you look covered up. You’ll be amazed by how different it is (and instantly hooked!). Get buildable, even coverage with an invisible Naked Skin feel and a demi-matte finish. For complete coverage, just keep building; no matter how much you apply, Naked Skin Concealer always blends beautifully and NEVER settles into fine lines. With eight meticulously calibrated shades that coordinate with our new Naked Skin Powder Foundation, we’ve got even your most scandalous flaws covered. Our new shade-matching system and new complexion matrix provides a clear starting point for finding your perfect shade: the first part represents shade intensity, and the second indicates shade undertone.

Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice – I’ve been into duo-chromes lately and this little lady is gorgeous. It’s a “metallic pink-red with green 3D sparkle and shift” and I absolutely have to have it!

Kat von D Lock-It Featherweight Primer – I liked the KVD Lock-It Tattoo Foundation over the summer before my skin dried out. This primer sounds amazing, too! I’ve been dissatisfied with the last few face primers I’ve used and have been in the market for the next primer to try. I think I might have found it!

Get locked-in hydration, locked-up comfort with this fast-absorbing, water-based primer. It’s the ultimate prep step that hydrates, protects skin, and smooths the appearance of pores for flawless makeup application. This innovative, lightweight formula is formulated with advanced polymers that help even out the skin’s surface while it provides a flexible, protective barrier to prevent foundation from settling into fine lines and pores. Scentless, colorless, and weightless, it delivers essential hydration and its infused with vitamin B5, aloe vera, jojoba, and shea to bring nourishment to the skin’s surface, leaving it feeling refreshed and comfortable all day—even underneath long-wear, full-coverage foundation.

Too Faced Melted Liquid Lipsticks – New Melted shades were announced at the end of December. A few of them were released in December but there are 4 shades reserved for January. Melted Chihuahua, Melted Melon, Melted Jelly Donut, Melted Villain release tomorrow! Villain and Melon neeeeed to be mine!

Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Brushes – These were announced the end of December so they’re not new in the last week, but they’re one of the only things I figured I’d be buying in January. These brushes are absolutely gorgeous!

Simple Skincare Micellar Water – If you’re not familiar with micellar waters, they’re a gentle cleansing water meant to cleanse your face of dirt and makeup without harsh cleansers and were made popular in Paris where the water quality is supposedly horrid and bad to wash your face in. There are a few high end brands you can get here in the US, but if I’m correct Simple is one of the first drugstore brands to release a micellar water in the US (Garnier and a few other brands have them, but they’re not for sale here in the US yet). I’m really excited to try this one out!

Simple® Micellar Cleanser Water is our most advanced yet gentle cleanse to date.  It is made with skin-loving ingredients, including Vitamin B3 and C, and Triple Purified Water, our purest possible water, to help remove contaminants known to irritate skin.  Our beauty benefits include:

  • Promoting a thorough cleanse:  Helping to remove make-up, dirt, impurities & unclog pores.
  • Helping to instantly hydrate skin:  Made with Triple Purified Water, skin loving ingredients & multi-vitamins, promotes an instant boost of skin hydration by 90%!
  • No residue:  Applied with a cotton round, Simple® Micellar Cleanser Water helps leave skin feeling fresh & revitalized, no rinsing required!

That’s it for now. I’m sure in the next few weeks there will be more product announcements. I’m excited to see what’s coming!
