Recent and Up-Coming Releases.

2014 was a great year for make-up. There were so many new releases, rereleases and I personally found some products that I absolutely loved. 2015 obviously has a lot to live up to but, with photos of some upcoming collections released to the public, it looks like it just might do it.

  • MAC Cinderella: To celebrate the upcoming release of Disney's Cinderella film, MAC are bringing out a 'Cinderella' inspired collection. We've already had collections inspired by Maleficent, Venemous Villans and more, all of which were top sellers, so let's hope the Cinderella collection is just as good. 

  • Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection: Sam and Nic recently announced the release of their Bold Metals collection, an extension of the original line. Though the brushes are currently exclusive to Boots, the collection is for those with a bit of an extra budget. The brushes are weighted so that they sit well in the hand, have an anti-roll handle and each bristle has been hand-tied and glued for shed resistance. As well as the Bold Metals line, Sam and Nic have also added a concealer and sculpting brush to the original line.

  • Model's Own Liquid Colour Chrome Collection: Though I'm not the biggest fan of these (I much prefer a matte nail varnish), I still thought the collection might interest you. They are £4.99 each and available in 10 shades. 
  • Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: We were teased about this one for weeks, up until ELLE magazine finally revealed just exactly what it was that they classed as the 'best beauty product of 2015'. The magazine will be giving this away with their March issue, before it is even available at benefit counters. It promises long lashes and, as the title may suggest, has been designed to help us ditch the eyelash curlers.

  • Benefit Puff Off: This has only been available for a short period of time, but I am already desperate to get my hands on it. An instant eye gel that promises to help brighten, smoothen and tighten the undereye? Yes, please. Not only that, but some of the biggest beauty bloggers already swear by it.

  • Urban Decay Spring 2015: Wow, wow and wow. This collection definitely promises big things. The collection includes: "Urban Decay Mascara Resurrection (£10) is a brush-on lash serum that freshens and softens already applied mascara, separating and defining the lashes making them ready for another coat. The new Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadows (£14.50) sees the launch of five additional shades in 3D, diamond-like glitter formula. In the brand's Naked line are the new Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealers (£17.50) which work like a second skin, with a buildable, demi-matte finish and available in six shades. Also in the Naked line is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation (£26) which can be used wet or dry for a luminous, demi-matte finish. Sheer Revolution Lipstick (£15.50) launches in 10 shades and provides a rich, creamy feel with a high-shine finish." I have to say that I'm very impressed with the wide range of shades. I'll take it all.

  • MAC x Miley Cyrus Viva Glam Collection: Whether you love her or hate her, there's no denying that Miley knows how to get you talk about her. Oh, and let's not forget she has great taste in lip products. All profits will be donated to the MAC AIDS Fund, a charity started by MAC founders Frank Angelo and Frank Toskan in 1994. Her Viva Glam lip product duo includes a bright pink lipstick and shimmery lip gloss. 
  • Chanel Spring 2015 Collection: Also known as the one that I have the least chance of getting my hands on. Let's not forget to mention that I'd be terrified to use any of it, mainly due to the embossing. The collection is inspired by the springtime gardens of Paris and is filled with a variety of shades of pinks, Fun fact: the entire collection (that's twenty items) would set you back $753.00. Perfectly reasonable, obviously.
  • Charlotte Tilbury Beach Sticks: Charlotte designed these cream blushes/bronzers with the thought "Who doesn't need a holiday 365 days a year?" firmly in her mind, which oficially makes her my Queen. Due to be released some time this month, the beach sticks will be available in five shades, all named after beaches in Ibiza, and contain a smoothing filler called Ceramidone.

  • Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette: Yes, it's expensive ($58), but have you seen how pretty it is?! The melted design of the palettes is designed to help create your own perfect shade by simply blending in packaging itself. 

Which is your favourite? Is there something I've missed out?
