Best new beauty products of December 2014

December may be the busiest month of activity in almost every respect but when it comes to new beauty launches there is very little going on. The opening of Sephora Australia was definitely the biggest beauty launch on my calendar but in other news there have been very few new beauty products hitting shelves this month.

Nevertheless, there were still lots of goodies to make my monthly task difficult. I’ve culled through over 20 new launches to show you my top picks.

Hair

Label.m

I honestly don’t know why hair perfume isn’t a bigger thing. I love the idea of giving my hair a signature scent that in no way interferes with the care and styling of my hair. Label.m’s new Hair Perfume delivers a fresh scent to your locks and the included argan oil leaves an ultra-light veil of shine. The scent includes notes of citrus blossom, white florals and rich woods.

Australia $49.95 from label.m concept salons and Toni & Guy salons.

Nails

Ulta3

Sheer bright colours are a perfect ingredient for summer mani’s and pedi’s. The new Watercolour Nail Art Kit makes it easy to create beautiful works of art by giving you 4 tinted nail lacquers and a pure white base lacquer. Get creative to make rainbows, swirls or splatter … whatever takes your fancy.

Australia $10 from selected pharmacies

ulta3 Watercolour Nail Art Set

Makeup

Make Up Store

The latest colour collection for swedish beauty house, Make Up Store, is Renaissance. My pick of the collection is the LED Lipgloss in Stucco. I will always fall for a beauty product with an in-built light but this gorgeous red shade with the perfect dose of sparkle is ideal for a festive Holiday look.

Australia $40 from Make Up Store

Makeup Store Stucco Lipgloss

Face of Australia

I use under-eye concealer like it’s a life-preserving essence. I do love the expensive stuff but the new Eye Lights Under Eye Concealer from FOA has been working wonders over my dark, tired bags. The wand applicator allows you to brush-on the concealer and blend it or you can blend with your fingers if you prefer.

Australia $12.95 from Priceline and selected pharmacies.

I love the budget-friendly creations from Designer Brands and this year they have released an adorable for anyone who loves a sweet scented body.
