The makeup releases in 2018 were insane. It was hard to keep up both on the blogging and banking fronts as they were so many things to talk about (you can catch up here: makeup releases for fall 2018, holiday eyeshadow palettes releases, and more holiday eyeshadow palettes releases). 2019 doesn’t look like it’s going to be any less intense, but it might be a bit more diverse, with more complexion products. Let’s have a look at the new makeup launches of 2019.
Morphe Brushes – Foundations, concealers, primers and setting powders
Release date: January 17th
Morphe Brushes is coming hard with a *huge* complexion range consisting of 60, yes 60, shades of foundation ($19), 2 primers ($12), 31 concealer shades ($9) and 15 setting powder shades ($12).
The brand claims the foundation will be full-coverage, 24-hour-wear, oil-free, paraben-free, fragance-free, with a soft matte finish and adapted to all skin types.
Definitely one of the biggest new makeup launches of 2019.
Urban Decay – Naked Palette Reloaded
Release date: TBA
The original Naked Palette wasn’t taken off the shelves for no reason, obviously! So here’s yet another Naked eyeshadow palette. The pan sizes seem to vary, which is, in my opinion, the only interesting thing about this palette. The brand hasn’t officially announced its release yet.
Fenty Beauty – Foundations, concealers, setting powders, brushes and sponges
Release date: January 11th
Prices: foundation: $34; concealer: $26; setting powder: $32, brushes: $34 and $26; sponge duo: $18
Where: Sephora, Fenty Beauty official website, Harvey Nichols
Fenty Beauty is also joining in the new makeup launches of 2019 with a whole range of complexion products.
The brand is extending its current Pro Filt’r Foundation range with 10 new shades.
They’re also coming out with 50 shades of Pro Filt’r concealers and 8 shades of Pro Filt’r setting powders.
There’s also going to be new sponges and complexion brushes.
I broke my Low-Buy January vows and indulged in the concealer. You can see my full review here.
Physician’s Formula x Casey Holmes – The Butter Collection
Release date: out now (currently sold out at the time of writing, but restocking soon)
Where: on the Physicial’s Formula official website
The California-based brand has collaborated with beauty youtuber Casey Holmes and released a Butter Bronzer inspired collection. The collection includes: a Butter bronzer, blush and highlighter, 4 eyeshadows, a butter lip cream, and an eau de toilette.
I hate to be a bitch, but this is by far the most underwhelming makeup launch of 2019.
Colourpop – Lux Velvet Blur lipsticks
Release date: January 10th
Colourpop is coming out with a new formula of matte lipsticks and a range of 16 shades. The new formula is said to fill and smooth over fine lines and leave a soft focus finish that lasts all day.
I’ve only tried one liquid lipstick from the brand and I wasn’t super happy with it (admittedly, I don’t like liquid lipsticks in general, so it wasn’t a big surprise.
