Avon are soon to be releasing their new Ultra Colour Lip Tint, a brand new, easy-to-apply lip stain pen. It promises to provide day-long lip colour and it comes in a range of seven shades.

The Ultra Colour Lip Tint comes designed like a felt tip pen, with a nib that provides precision application. Upon application, the formula sinks into the lips and dries straight away, leaving comfortable to wear colour.

As well as this, Avon also claim that the Lip Tint is "bleed-proof", "transfer-proof" and "kiss-proof".

I picked myself up a pen in the shade Flamingo, a bright red-orange shade that is perfect for summer.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat Moisturiser

Effaclar Mat by La Roche-Posay is a sebum reducing, mattifying moisturiser for oily skin. It contains Sebulyse, an ingredient that helps to mattify the skin and tighten pores. Effaclar Mat is also suitable for those with sensitive skin, using minimal ingredients and fragrance and is 100% hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and paraben free.

La Roche-Posay claim that over time, Effaclar Mat will refine the skin's texture, tighten pores and reduce the amount of sebum that is produced. As well as being a moisturiser, La Roche-Posay claim that it works well as a makeup base.

It comes packaged in a matte, flip cap white tube (a nod towards the fact that it's a mattifying moisturiser) that holds 40ml of product. La Roche-Posay also claim that this type of packaging reduces the amount of micro-bacterial contamination. This tube then comes in an aesthetically matching box that contains extra product information.

MAC Crosswires Lipstick

MAC’s Crosswires lipstick is a pinky-orange shade that isn’t overly vivid but definitely not dull. It is one of MAC’s Cremesheen finish lipsticks, meaning that it is has a creamy, glossy shine to it when applied.

The Cremesheen formula is also quite pigmented, so it is easy to build up into a bold, opaque colour. Along with this, it is also designed to be comfortable on the lips.

Crosswires is one of my go-to shades for Spring. It’s not a new release, but if you are on the lookout for a new shade to wear now that the weather is beginning to grow warmer, then read on!

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit’s new Roller Lash mascara is an ink black, water-resistant, satin finish mascara that provides instant length and curl to even the shortest and straightest of lashes.

It contains a Hook & Roll brush that is created to act like a hair roller for eyelashes. The bristles contain little hooks that are placed to grab at the lashes, separate and curl them as the formula sets the curve into place for up to 12 hours.

The Roller Lash formula also includes Serin and Pro Vitamin B5 to condition the lashes.

It comes packaged in a sleek, black tube with a baby pink, screw cap lid that is designed to look like a hair roller.

I currently have the sample that was included in my March Birchbox which looks slightly different to the full-size, but if you click here to go to the Benefit website, you can see the proper packaging.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Range

The Body Shop are soon to be introducing a new collection of products to their already vast selection: the Fuji Green Tea range.

It is inspired by the use of green tea in bathing to detoxify the skin, something that Japanese women have been doing for generations.
The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Range
"We all know that green tea has antioxidant qualities. With its detoxifying health benefits, green tea has been revered for over 400 years in social and cultural activities, including the Japanese Tea Ceremony.

But did you know that some Japanese women apply it to their skin and bathe in it? It’s a skincare secret that’s been part of beauty regimes for generations, believed to help retain moisture and tighten pores.

We’ve taken this knowledge a step further, creating Fuji Green Tea™ range, the first body range infused with real green tea leaves and their benefits. We’ve been picky though, quite literally. Our green tea comes from the heartland of Japan, the pristine Mount Fuji region. Here, our experts hand-pick the finest shoots to capture the potent antioxidant power. We infuse this in to our range to replenish and refresh with pure moisture for healthier-feeling skin." (Source - The Body Shop  Fuji Green Tea range press release)
