Oooh new makeup products from George! I've been using George makeup for years now, I've recommended countless products to my friends and have even got my mum (who usually goes for higher end products) hooked on their Ultra Sheer foundation. I was obviously really excited to hear about some new releases for spring, a gorgeous selection of cream blushes, matte lipsticks and gloss/stains, oh yeah! I'm sure most of us are switching out our most used makeup products at the moment, now that spring has finally arrived it's all about brighter lips, lighter bases and an overall fresher look. These two products will be great new additions to any spring makeup routine- I know I'll be using them both a lot!

Creme Blush (Coral)
Cream blushes are always a summer staple, they create that dewy 'summer glow' and sit nicely on the skin even on warm days (as opposed to powder which can be a bit...well, powdery). This has quickly become one of my favourite George products and if you're going to pick up one thing from the range I definitely recommend this. The pigmentation is unreal- one tiny tab is all you need, yet the finish on the skin is very natural looking. The formula is beautiful, it's amazingly creamy and blends seamlessly into the skin;  it's definitely not a 'cream to powder' finish, but does set after a few minutes so that it's not sliding everywhere. George cream blushes come in their standard black and clear packaging, I think it would have been nice to see something a bit more adventurous but it's sturdy enough and does the job. This product has really impressed me, it's absolutely perfect for the spring and summer and such a bargain.

Matte Lipstick (Smooch)
There are few things that make me happier than new lipstick, and this matte offering from George certainly didn't disappoint. A lovely peachy nude shade, really wearable and a long lasting yet comfortable formulation. I'd describe this as more of a satin/ semi matte than true matte as it does have a slight shine to it, and isn't half as drying as some of the other mattes in my collection. I can see this becoming one of my most used lip products this spring, I love how it looks with the coral creme blush and while it's quite a muted colour it's not so pale that you need really heavy eye makeup to balance it out. The packaging of this is quite cool too, rather than a pull off lid you press the bottom of the tube which pops out the silver lipstick mechanism from the outer packaging.

What new makeup products have you got your eye on for spring?

  9. Oh, gosh, I've never heard of George makeup until now. For some reason, most of the blogs that I subscribe to are UK blogs (probably because I love to read things written by people from far away!), and I always feel like I'm missing out on the coolest things.

    Right now, my latest favorite Spring look is red lipstick. Granted, I don't think that's the trend right now, though. I don't know about the rest of the world, but here in the States, apparently the trend is coral/orange lipsticks. Chic and Alluring Blog
