Green Beauty Launches Spring 2014

Spring 2014 Green beauty Launches ilia beauty hold me now ilia beauty jump rms beauty mascara ilia beauty powder fade into you

 Winter is finally gone and I don’t think that I will ever complain again about the hot weather here in the South. It has been the coldest Winter since I moved to the US and I have gotten sick multiple times, ugh. I am more than ready to welcome Spring with her sunny days and fresh, seasonal green beauty launches. A few of them are particularly exciting for me and I actually already pre-ordered some products, ooooops!

RMS Beauty Volumizing Mascara & RMS Beauty Defining Mascara. Was anyone else surprised to find out that RMS Beauty launched two mascaras? I was only expecting one, but I was glad to find two options. The formulas are slightly different and so are the two mascara wands. I am more intrigued by the wand of the Defining Mascara, but I am also very curious about trying the formula of the Volumizing one, whose ingredients look more conditioning. Oh well. I will give both a try, I guess! Which one are you the most curious about?

Ilia Beauty New Tinted Lip Conditioners. Two new shades were just launched last week. One is a soft pastel pink, called Hold Me Now.  This shade is similar to the Ilia Beauty Multi-Stick in Tenderly, which is a pale, blue-ish pick. The other one is a bright fuschia, and it is called Jump. Jump reminds me of an Ilia Beauty lipstick called Neon Angel, but Jump seems to be more sheer, moisturizing, and containing more blue in it. I happen to have already ordered one of the two: can you guess which one? I am sure some of you are able to guess! ;) They are available at Spirit Beauty Lounge.

Ilia Beauty Powder Fade Into You. You may have a hard time believing me, because you know how much I love my Ilia Beauty Lipsticks and Tinted Lip Conditioners, but I am even more excited to try this powder. For the past few months I did not have any issues with oily skin because it was waaaay too cold and dry to have any. However, there is a humid Summer waiting around the corner and my skin’s needs will change drastically. I still love my RMS Un-powder, but of course, I just have to try this powder as well and I am tremendously curious to see how it works. Arent’ you?

Kahina Giving Beauty Night Cream. My skin loves Kahina’s Argan oil and that is also the main ingredients in this moisturizer that is specifically formulated for the night. It also contains resveratrol which is a powerful antioxidant that builds collagen and reduces cell damage. As much as I love applying Argan Oil in the evening, I will gladly layer some of this magic potion on top of it to prevent my hair line from getting oily, and get an anti-aging treatment boost at the same time. Win-win.

MVO Pacific Lip Treatment*. In line with other Pacific products made by Marie Veronique Organics, this is an anti-aging lip treatment that contains emollients like Jojoba and Castor Seed Oil, but is also meant to plump the lips thanks to a blend of peptides and super-humectants that support collagen production. I am actually already using this one, and so far, it is love.

La Bella Figura Gentle Enzyme Cleanser and the Aria Night-Time Cell Recovery Treatment. The cleanser is described as a silky gel formula that also removes makeup without drying the skin. It also contains Pineapple and Papaya Enzymes for gentle exfoliation. As much as I love my ED4OLO cleansing oil, I am definitely intrigued. The night-time treatment is designed to help mature skins to regenerate and repair. The ingredient list includes lots of rich, nourishing ingredients. The ladies at La Bella Figura are known to be always searching for the most powerful ingredients available, so this is definitely another very interesting launch. What do you think?

Lastly, I am super-excited that Yuli Skincare is now available at Spirit Beauty Lounge. The products are almost all sold out, (sorry I didn’t tell you earlier guys, but I found out about it when most of the products were already gone). We surely know what to get next time Spirit restocks her shelves don’t we? I was able to pick one product before it was gone, so I will let you know my thoughts once I can review it . Also, keep your eyes peeled for another makeup launch by W3ll People, which is going to be a mascara. It is not available yet, but it is definitely another one to consider in the future.

Are you going to try any of these products? Anything that you are really interested into? I am curious to know!

    I’m so excited to try La Bella Figura and Kahina Giving Beauty! I am actually using the sensitive skin care line from Yuli (Halcyon Cleanser, Cocoon Elixir, Liquid Courage, ME Skin Fuel, Cell Perfecto PM, and Cellular Lip Conditioner) and Yuli is absolute love!!

  • Laura

    I also really love yuli and have been using their elixirs, serums, lip and body treatment as well as mask. Their cleanser is unfortunately too stripping for my drier skin. Interested in the kahina creme but saddened that it comes in a pot rather than an airtight container. I love kjaer weis mascara so much, not sure if I will try rms and am a bit surprised that the defining formula contains hydrogenated oils…?!. La bella figura is a big no no for me; especially since I’ve seen how they trey treated a green beauty blogger recently. Not. Cool.

      Hey Laura.. I am curious as to what you are referring to re: LBF and a green beauty blogger? I have never tried anything from them in the past but I just ordered a few things from them and I realllllly like to have the low-down on a company before I support them with my $

  • Kelly

    Excited that Yuli is at Spirit Beauty lounge now. Using Liquid Courage which I love.

  • CindyBokma

    The new Ilia shades and the RMS mascara! Cant wait to try!

  • These new products present great danger to my credit card! They all look fantastic. I tested out the W3LL People mascara at their beauty event in the Fall. It’s a winner like their other products! I have a mascara collection worthy of a museum :-)

  • Chrystabel

    Love yuli! I use the cleanser, m.e skin fuel, and cell perfecto p.m., but my favourute has been the harmony body oil!

  • Mademoiselle nature

    Some nice new products here…..super excited to try soon Yuli..and curious about the new cleanser from La Bella Figuera.

  • Amber

    I’m looking forward to seeing how well the RMS mascaras are! I was very tempted to pre-order but thought I would wait for reviews :) The Ilia lip colours look gorgeous too!

  • I want everything! :D xx

  • Corina

    I purchased the LBF cleanser over the weekend, and then I saw your post about how much you love ED4OLO’s oil cleanser! My biggest complaint about Tata Harper’s wonderful cleanser is that I felt like I could. not. get. it. off!!! It drove me crazy. Then I tried the Tatcha cleansing oil and was totally wooed by its powers of cleansing as well as washing off completely. I have been using pure jojoba oil lately followed by May’s Clean Dirt. LBF seems to be emphasizing that you will definitely need a cloth to get their cleanser off. So, we will see! It is supposed to be arriving tomorrow. I’m hoping I love it. I also ordered the Barbary fig serum and jardin de fleurs. They will be my first LBF products.

    • Corina

      Update: used the cleanser a few times, smells and feels good.. You can definitely feel the enzymes. However, when I used it to take of my make-up (a few dabs of kjaer Weis foundation on blemishes, some highlighting and some bronzing powder) it didn’t really do the job. I washed and wiped FOUR times before I didn’t see anymore makeup coming off on the cloth. I will keep playing I with it of course but I just don’t see it taking off makeup. My skin likes it though

      • Kelly

        Thanks for the update. I like the Barbary fig renewal serum too, my fav product from them.
