NARS, Benefit, and More: February Beauty Launches 2012
It's only February, but we're already looking forward to spring’s splashy shades and our beloved strappy espadrilles. This month brings an exciting crop of new beauty products, from fresh fragrances and bold lip colors to subtle-yet-sexy polishes. Here are the launches we can’t wait to get our hands on.
The California girl created four sets of falsies with lash-brand Eylure, ranging from a dainty, natural looking set called “Sweetie Pie” to the dramatic, extra-bold “Oh, My” pack.
The most exciting part of this mascara is its packaging. The sleek, bullet-like case has a hidden mirror that pops open when you pull on the case, plus a replaceable tube and applicator wand.
This new line of 24 shades, ranging from glossy nudes to pearlescent brights, was developed with young starlet Emma Watson. Each long-lasting hue stays on for up to six hours.
Celebrity nail stylist Jenna Hipp and RGB founder Gina Carney teamed up for this paraben- and gluten-free collection of nude polishes. Each of the four shades is designed for a different skin tone, and gives an opaque, glossy finish.
Stop everything. The blockbuster brand known for its hyper-pigmented shades is coming out with its first-ever tinted moisturizer. The Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer has natural botanicals with anti-aging and skin brightening properties, plus SPF 30.
It took three years for Benefit to perfect its inaugural line of foundations. And no wonder—the groundbreaking formula is packed with an oxygen complex that plumps skin, plus vitamin C and E. The nine shades are all oil-free, with built-in SPF 25. Flawless, indeed.
This newly launched serum is a potent antidote to hyperpigmentation from sun damage, age spots, and blemish scars. During lab trials, the formula (which has skin brightening vitamin C along with white birch and peony extract) resulted in a more even complexion in just two weeks.
The second “anti-perfume” from Lutens’ L’eau Line will hit shelves in Paris this month, followed by retailers worldwide in March. The clean unisex scent is layered with a marine note, musk, mint and vetiver to evoke a polar, cool feeling.
