We’re halfway through the year, so it’s time to post about the new makeup launches of 2018. There are so many hot beauty releases recently, a makeup junkie like me can’t wait to try these. While we are all aware about the FENTY BEAUTY Collection that was launched this year, these recent launches are driving the bloggers and artists crazy.
DIOR BACKSTAGE COLLECTION (Shop Here)
What could be more exciting??? Dior has launched its affordable link of makeup including Backstage Face and Body Foundation, Backstage Eyeshadow Palette, Backstage Brushes, Backstage Brow Palette Eye and Backstage Glow Face Palette. A collection of makeup artist essentials, designed to suit all skin tones, used at the Dior runway shows, and inspired by the energy backstage was launched on 15 June 2018. Now you need not pay a king’s ransom to have Dior makeup in your vanity.
As far as I understand, Dior Backstage Foundation would be a perfect substitute for my old and favorite M.A.C Face and Body Foundation, which provides natural glow with medium coverage. Dior Backstage Foundation is available in 40 shades to suit all skin tones. This is definitely star of the show!
Dior Backstage Eyeshadow Palette is priced as low as $49. An all-in-one eyeshadow and primer palette with eight blendable shades in matte and shimmer finishes. There are 2 palettes for both cool and warm undertones.
Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette has two luminous blush shades and two radiant highlighters for a customizable backstage glow. The palette is designed with two highlighters—one white and one golden as well as two blush shades, one rosy and one bronze that can be applied to the cheekbones or as a bronzer.
Dior Backstage Lip Palette is the Dior makeup artists’ secret weapon to create an array of pro lip looks from ultra-natural to bold. It is a neutral palette perfect for any lip tone, from rosy nude to burgundy.
If you’re a beauty junkie like me and you’re also on a budget, you must pick something from this collection.
COLOURPOP NO FILTER FOUNDATION (Shop Here)
I forked over much money for makeup this year and nothing makes me happier than saving money while buying myself some more makeup. Women who are new to makeup find it challenging to find the right shade of foundation and powder that exactly matches their skin tone. Fortunately, ColourPop is one such brand who understands the frustration and have dedicated their resources to enable women to pick the right shade of foundation while shopping online. If you’re looking for a great foundation that’s perfect for daily wear and one that feels absolutely weightless on the skin, will give you the most natural matte finish, full coverage while feeling comfortable on your skin.
Moreover, you can set the foundation with No Filter Setting Powder which has been developed with ultra-fine smooth powders to provide a long-wearing, soft focus matte finish without feeling heavy or looking cakey.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS DREAM GLOW KIT
If there is one word that is in every beauty junkie and makeup lovers’ vocabulary, it’s highlighter. Every beauty brand has one and they are all trying to get you to get your glow on! If you’re a professional MUA, you will love this new launch by ABH. This palette features six shades of Anastasia’s buildable, metallic-luster highlighting formula. They blend into your skin beautifully and come with an affordable price tag. Some of you may think that these new shades are too bold and gaudy for your likes. Well, if you use a little bit of product and build it up from there, the results will amaze you. Layer them together or wear them separately on the face, eyes, and body. You can use a fan brush to apply the highlighters on top of your cheekbones, nose, collar bones or shoulders.
