New Year Makeup Refresh – The Beauty Look Book

New spring beauty launches have started to trickle in and I am always so excited to see what the new year brings us! I hauled quite a few of the new launches to try out and have a Sephora makeup haul to share with you today. If you’re a Beauty Insider you have early access to a lot of the beauty launches. I also love the rewards and perks they offer for events and savings! If you’re not a Sephora Beauty Insider yet I highly recommend signing up.

I hauled a little bit of everything for eyes, lips, cheeks and complexion. Here is what I’ve been testing out the past few weeks!

Sephora Haul Charlotte Tilbury, NARS, Rare Beauty, Natasha Denona

Charlotte Tilbury

Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation 6 Neutral

Charlotte Tilbury just launched her new Beautiful Skin Foundation ($44) and it is beautiful! It’s a medium coverage liquid base with a natural glow. It has a smooth semi-dewy finish that looks like my skin but better. It evens out my skin and lasts all day (truly impressive). My match is 6 Neutral right now and I love it.

NARS Afterglow

NARS Afterglow Cheek Palette and Afterglow Lip Shine

NARS launched their Afterglow Collection for spring with a new cheek palette and glosses. The Afterglow Blush Palette ($59) has gorgeous colors to bring life to the complexion. There is one pale pink highlighter and five blushes. Pigment is excellent and buildable. I’m always a little timid when it comes to super bold bright shades for the cheeks but their Exhibit A blush makes for a really stunning flush.

They also added new shades to their Afterglow Lip Shine Lip Gloss lineup ($26 each). These are some of the smoothest glosses I’ve tried with a comfortable finish and mirror-like shine. I love the hydrating formula and the colors are stunning. Swatches of all the new shades below and another look wearing the Afterglow Lipshine in Orgasm which is a pretty pink gold peach shimmer.

New Natasha Denona

Natasha Denona Mini Biba Eyeshadow Palette and Mini Rose Cheek Duo review

Natasha Denona always brings us the prettiest palettes and highlighters! I hauled her Mini Biba Palette ($25) which has the perfect mix of colors for a complete eye look. She also launched a Mini Rose Cheek Duo ($19) with a cream rose blush and soft highlighter. I love the texture and colors. Everything is perfect for an elevated everyday kind of look.

Makeup By Mario

Makeup by Mario Ultra Suede Lipstick and Sculpting Lip Pencil Haul Picks

I hauled a few Makeup by Mario lip products over the holiday and think there are some winners! The Ultra Suede Lipstick ($24) in Brielle is one of my favorites for a pretty mauve pink shade. These have a nice a velvety matte finish and long lasting power. Coverage is smooth with a diffused kind of look.

The Ultra Suede Sculpting Lip Pencils ($22) are also really good! They’re smooth, pigmented and come in a wide range of shades. I picked three in Daniel (spiced brown), Hugh (nude pink) and Johnny (rose pink) and think they are super wearable alone or with a coordinating lipstick.

Rare Beauty

I’ve been impressed with everything I’ve tried from Rare Beauty and have fallen in love with the Soft Pinch Liquid Blushes ($20). I like that they have both dewy and matte finishes. I love Happy for a bright healthy pink. Hope is a pretty everyday kind of neutral. Encourage is a pretty deeper rose mauve. They are super pigmented so a little goes a long way. They’re easy to blend and have pretty good lasting power.

New Kosas

Kosas launched their new 10-Second Eye Gel Watercolor Eyeshadow ($15) which replaced their liquid formula. I think the new one is a huge improvement in wear and ease of application. I ordered all the shades sight unseen and think every single one is wearable for an all over wash as a one-and-done kind of eyeshadow. I love them layered/mixed especially Heat and Blaze. Lasting power is really good with these. Once they set they don’t budge.

New at Sephora

YSL Lash Clash, Dior Lip Maximizer Serum and Chloe Naturelle Mini

Last three things I wanted to share from my haul are from YSL, Dior and Chloe. I think the new YSL Lash Clash Extreme Mascara ($29) is the best one they’ve launched to date. It’s volumizing, ultra dark in pigment, doesn’t flake and doesn’t smudge. It’s a winner for me!

Dior launched a new Lip Maximizer Serum Intense and I love it. It has a completely different texture and finish compared to their Lip Maximizers. The new Lip Maximizer Serum has a serum feel, like a face serum, but for the lips! It has a vanilla mint kind of scent, no tingle on me, and coats the lips with a veil of moisture.

It might be a little early for spring fragrances but I spritzed the new Chloe Naturelle Eau de Parfum and fell in love with it. I decided to buy the mini size to try it out. It’s fresh and green, similar to the original Chloe perfume, but with a fresh clean vibe.
