beautyimagefeatue

As temperatures plunge this week, we can't enjoy our spring wardrobes just yet but we can look forward to all the exciting new beauty launches. We asked blogger Anneli Bush, founder of What I Bought Today, to compile the top 10 new make-up and skincare releases - from the must-have three-in-one mascara to the latest in hydrating lip colour. These are the products everyone will be talking about. Race you!

1. Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil

"I am always looking for products that enable a brighter and more natural complexion (who isn’t?). After several recommendations, I recently tried Chantecaille´s new 100 per cent botanical elixir and it has done wonders for my skin so far. With its supercharged formula, nourishing texture and healing properties – it rejuvenates, clears and enhances a natural glow."

Chantecaille Rose de Mai Face Oil, £150, in store now.

Available at Fenwick Bond Street and Brent Cross.

2. La Prairie Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster

"I often find anti-aging products quite heavy, however I was pleasantly surprised to discover this booster serum from La Prairie is so lightweight and smooth. Ideal for targeting wrinkles, plumping, maintaining moisture and brightening your complexion; this is a much-anticipated product for good reason (and worth every penny)."

La Prairie Anti-Aging Rapid Response Booster, £195, in store in April.

La Prairie is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Brent Cross, Colchester, Kingston and Newcastle.

3. Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate

"Eye care is so important to me, and the iconic Eye Concentrate product from Clarins has been a firm favourite for years. Later this month they will launch a new updated version featuring organic extract of harungana which plumps the cells around the eyes. It works to brighten, smooth and diminish any fine lines. It’s also excellent for puffiness and dark circles, promoting a more plump and radiant eye area; I plan to never travel without it!"

Clarins Super Restorative Total Eye Concentrate, £52, in store 29 March.

Clarins is available in Fenwick Bond Street, Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells, Windsor and York.

4. Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation

"Being a long-standing fan of Bobbi Brown´s holistic approach to her products – my latest discovery is this wonderful serum foundation, fusing skincare with make-up. Supercharged with powerful tonics along with skin-correcting pigments – this SP40 foundation gives you an even and flawless all-day coverage, whilst feeding your skin using mushroom ingredients (sounds kind of strange – but it really works)."

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation, £39, in store now.

Bobbi Brown is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Canterbury, Kingston, Newcastle and Tunbridge Wells.

5. Laura Mercier Silk Crème Photo Edition Foundation

"Never being a big fan of anything too heavy on my skin, I love the latest addition to Laura Mercier´s make-up roster; the Silk Crème in a moisturising version. An extension from the original Silk Crème Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation (which is amazing for photo-ready skin), the latest version is super nourishing, yet still promoting a flawless finish. Win-win."

Laura Mercier Silk Crème Photo Edition Foundation, £35, in store in April.

Laura Mercier is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Brent Cross, Colchester, Kingston, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells, Windsor and York.

6. Estee Lauder Little Black Primer

"A primer for your lashes? Sure, why not. I for one am obsessed! You can use this either as a primer before applying your regular mascara to enhance more volume, brush it over your mascara for a long-wearing and water-resistant topcoat (no more smudging), or as a lash tint. I am all about multi-use beauty products, and this will be one of my make-up bag must-haves."

Estee Lauder Little Black Primer, £20, in store now.

Estee Lauder is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells, Windsor and York.

7. Clinique Sonic System Anti-Blemish Solutions Deep Cleansing Brush Head

"Cleansing is an essential part of my skincare routine, especially when living in a big city. Clinique´s purifying Sonic movement cleansing brush helps remove dirt, pollution and leftover make-up residue in any hard-to-reach areas. The new softer bristle anti-blemish brush is much gentler on delicate areas of the face and the brush is lightweight, enabling me to use it every day, as well as bring with me on my travels."

Anti blemish solutions deep cleansing brush head, £20, in store now.

Clinique is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells, Windsor and York.

8. Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Powder

"I have been a huge fan of Guerlain’s iconic bronzer for years for several reasons; it´s longevity, smoothness and the ability to give that natural glow we´re all after (without looking or feeling too heavy on the face). This season they are launching a new powder cleverly composed of two complementary shades: a softened sun-kissed bronze with a reviving pink apricot to add a burst of radiance. In four different shades, it’s the perfect colour fit for all skin tones (music to my ears)."

Joli Teint Natural Healthy Glow Powder Duo, £35.50, in store April.

Guerlain is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Windsor and York.

9. Lancome Shine Lover lipsticks

"My pet hate is lipstick that dries your lips out. Not a good look! Lancome´s new Shine Lover range is so lovely; combining high-intensity colour with nourishing, long-lasting moisture. I love the balm texture and the colour range is so fresh. My personal favourite is the Corail Lover – the perfect shade to take you from day to night."

Shine Lover long lasting moisture lipstick, £21, in store May.

Lancome is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells, Windsor and York.

10. Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick

"No need for introduction, this iconic lipstick is a beautyaholic´s must-have (hence why I own more than I would like to admit). This month it has been updated with a new hydrating formula in 29 new shades. My personal favourite shade is Gabrielle – the perfect red for all occasions, giving that luxuriously soft and matt look."

Rouge Coco lipstick, £26, in store now.

Chanel is available at Fenwick Bond Street, Bracknell, Brent Cross, Canterbury, Colchester, Kingston, Leicester, Newcastle, Tunbridge Wells, Windsor and York.
