New Products I Am Excited About

There are a few product launches coming up that I am getting all squealy and twitchy about so I thought I would share them with you. 

Clinique Chubby Sticks 

These adorable lip crayons sum up my favourite type of lip product: a fat pencil (easy grip), lip tint AND lip stain AND moisturing AND slightly glossy.  I don't know how I'm going to restrain myself from buying all eight shades when they launch here on the 15th April.  They're already available (and selling out) on the US site, so grab one now if you can - and let me know what they're like!

No7/Poppy King collection

The seasonal collections from No7 don't normally do much for me, with the exception of the Smoky Liner from Autumn last year, but this collection of eight lipsticks and lipglosses, the result of a collaboration between the Lipstick Queen Poppy King and make-up artist Lisa Eldridge, have me champing at the bit.   I'll bypass the glosses and head straight for the lipsticks when they launch on the 23rd March.  Even better, Boots are currently giving out the £5 vouchers for No7 which are valid until the 27th March, so you can get these lipsticks for a little less than the £12 price tag.

Finally, I am balancing on the precipice of my first purchase from Illamasqua.  The SS11 Toxic Nature collection, launching in the UK on Thursday, features this, the Toxic Nature Precision Ink in Glister.  It's a totally unique product in that I've never seen a nude, shimmery liquid liner before, and so am very keen to snap this up.  This promo image only shows it amongst the rest of the collection, but you can see a swatch here c/o Charlotte at Lipglossiping.

What upcoming products and collections have caught your eye (and panicked your purse)?


  1. I'm SO looking forward to the Clinique Chubby Sticks being launched! I've been lusting over them ever since I saw the post over on Temptalia.com. I reckon I'll end up with 3 or 4 of them as they'll be perfect for a quick work face.

    Thanks for the tip on the launch date too, I couldn't find it anywhere so you've given me a definite date to look forward too!


  2. Oooh more tempting products eek :o)
    I imagine the Chubby Sticks to be comparable to Barry M Lip Crayons (not sure of the name) I will definitely be snapping one up :o)

  3. I did a post about the chubby sticks too! I keep milling around the Clinique counter at House of Fraser in Nottingham hoping they might turn up early.........
