Each month the beauty industry globally releases hundreds of new products, shades and collections. It can be really hard to stay on top of all the new pretty products that come out, even if you are the savviest shopper around. Starting now, I am going to attempt to make the process a little easier for everyone by posting my favourite new releases each month.

Think of this new series as a monthly hit list of items to keep an eye out for. As we are in the middle of March, it means a change of season and we see all the awesome new collections hit shelves. The first month of a new season is always the most exciting so without further delay, let’s get into the hottest products to hit shelves this March.

On Monday I let you in on what I got up to while running around at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. One thing I promised to bring you was more details on make-up extraordinaire, Terry Barber.

So, who is Terry Barber? Officially, he is the UK Director of Make-Up Artistry for MAC. Unofficially, he is a world class, wicked make-up artist who creates looks backstage at fashion shows all over the globe. The man has talent, and he knows how to use it.

I was lucky enough to have crossed paths with him backstage at the Stolen Girlfriends Club show during RAFW. The task he was given was no easy feat, as he had two VERY different looks to create, but he did so perfectly. You will be able to read more about it over at Sassybella this week, so make sure you hop over and keep an eye out.

As I was saying, Terry is talented, but in order to help the women of Australia compile the correct products for their own beauty kit, Terry selected 5 must-have items to share with us. Here they are along with my own personal opinion of them.

Terry's Essentials

Studio Careblend / Pressed Powder

US $23 / UK £17.50

MAC Says: Formulated to provide a smooth, virtually invisible, fresh-looking finish, this soft, cream-like powder is carefully blended to provide the skin with extra care, nourishment and comfort.

I Say: The colour I have is Medium Dark which I thought would be WAY to dark for me, however it surprisingly isn’t that noticeable. Maybe I am using too little or my eyesight is broken, but it actually finishes of my make-up quite nicely and you can’t see the colour. The powder is silky smooth and it doesn’t sit in creases or get that dry-flaky look. One thing I don’t like is the basic powder puff that it comes with, but let’s be honest and say if you are using MAC you would have some proper tools at hand. I personally like to use a much bigger fluffy puff.

Cremeblend Blush

AU $40 / US $19.50 / UK £17

MAC Says: A poured cream blush uniquely formulated to bring a natural, softly dewy look to the cheek. Creamy and soft to apply, yet colour, depth and dimension stay throughout the day. Provides a luxuriously smooth, medium-buildable coverage. May be used on cheeks or lips.

I Say: Generally I am scared of creamy blushes because I am fair skinned and I have a rough hand (I always over apply). I am loving this blush in ‘Something Special’ because it is so easy Continue Reading
