Products I’m excited about in 2011…

Reading blogs is the easiest way to fuel and ever growing shopping list…. products I am already looking forward to getting my hands on (assuming they are going to be launched in the UK) are…

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation and powder (find out more on Make Up 4 All)

I love the original Healthy Mix foundation, and the idea of this in a lighter more ‘gel-like’ formula is really exciting.

This foundation will launch in the UK in September 2011.

Garnier Fructis ‘Pure Clean’ Shampoo and Conditioner 

My overwhelming memory of the Garnier Fructis Shampoo is when it first came out and there was huge negative hype around it for the high silicone content and how it left hair lank and limp.

I have tried the styling products from the range and really like them, so I’m keen to give the range a second chance and see if the new ‘silicone and paraben free’ range is better. Downside is it’s already out in the US and have no idea if it’s coming to the UK.

Boots 17 Pastel Vintage Love Palette

I spied these in this months Glamour Magazine and think they are beautiful! I love the selection of colours on these, both the bronze and pastel shades. They will be priced £5.49 each but afraid I don’t know when they are out (I haven’t seen them yet) so if you know – please let me know!

These palettes launch 23rd Feb & will be on sale for 4 weeks. There are also some new nail polishes & blushers being launched too.

What products are you excited about in 2011? This is just a small selection, but I am sure the list will get longer….

    I haven’t got around to trying the original Healthy Mix foundation (I swatched it a few times at Boots, then always ended up deciding the colour wasn’t right, or there was too much coverage) so I am REALLY looking forward to seeing what the gel version would be like, as it sounds right up my street!

    That’s really random about the Garnier already being out in the US and not in the UK. Normally we have to wait for ages after something from Garnier comes out in the UK before we get it here.

    I do need to check if it isn’t already out, in case it is and I just missed it. But pretty sure it’s not!

    I love the bronze shades pallette, but I really don’t need anymore bronze eyeshadows!

    Those boots 17 eyeshadow palette’s look really cool, hadn’t read anything about them yet! xoxo Roz
