New Releases Radar 5

1. Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix Kit: Perfect as a small gift or as a way to sample these cult-favorite lip crayons, Bite Beauty recently released their Best Bite Remix Kit ($25) at Sephora. This kit includes 4 mini-sized versions of Bite Beauty’s High Pigment lip pencils in limited-edition colors that seem: Sablé (nude), Pomegranate (rose berry), Rhubard (plum berry), Winterberry (festive Raspberry red). These lip colors look perfect for fall and are included in a convenient, purse-sized metal compact. I have not tried Bite Beauty products yet but I have heard great things about their high performing qualities although one should be cautious of their not-always-so-organic ingredients. Available exclusively at Sephora.

2. Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm: I know that Pumpkin Spice Latte is now some crazy-weird movement all over the world, but I’m not really into it. And not really a fan of Starbucks anyway. But for those of you who are PSL-obsessed with a non-toxic beauty spin, Burt’s Bees is releasing a Pumpkin Spice version of their cult-favorite lip balm later this month. I’ve always loved the original Burt’s Bees lip balm and this kind of sounds tempting…no matter how cliché the whole PSL trend is by now. Look out for these hard-to-resist lip balms in stores at Target.
Reportedly available for $3.29 at Target stores nationwide starting the week of October 26th.

3. ILIA Beauty Vivid Concealer, Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturizer, and Fall Lipsticks: Another fab beauty release from ILIA Beauty but this time it’s a full-facial one (or three): a concealer ($30), tinted moisturizer ($42), and 2 new fall lip colors ($26)! I’m most interested in the Sheer Vivid Tinted Moisturizer: available as 6 generous shades, this product is a semi-matte formula that contains soothing and hydrating botanicals like aloe vera, while ingredients like white tea and rosemary extract provide protection from free radicals. Not only does this Tinted Moisturizer sound like a product that’ll treat and improve your skin, it’ll provide a sheer hint of coverage and improve it’s overall appearance. I cannot wait to try a sample or see some real swatches, the colors on the website are a bit hard to choose from. ILIA’s new Vivid Concealer also comes in 6 shades (all of which look very complimentary to the Tinted Moisturizer shades), and claim to have a smooth, gentle application also packed with healing botanicals like aloe and coconut oil, as well as arnica and green tea extract to help calm inflammation. ILIA also claims this concealer will help conceal dark circles under eyes, even out skin tone, and reduce redness. The 2 new fall lipstick colors are: Strike It Up, a true red with blue undertones and Linger, a limited-edition warm cognac. These colors look like they’d definitely be pretty for the holidays but I’m not too wild about either. Plus, I have way too many ILIA lipsticks than I should…
Available at ILIA Beauty, Eco Diva Beauty, Spirit Beauty Lounge, The Detox Market.

4. Rahua Body Products: I’ve been LOVING Rahua natural hair care products for a while. (Yes, I need to write up my thoughts soon.) Rahua’s products contain 100% natural ingredients, are cruelty-free, and inspired by traditional ingredients and hair care secrets from the Amazon. Now, the luxe cult-haircare brand has launched an exciting line of natural body products including a body lotion ($48), shower gel ($30), and body oil ($57) also featuring amazing natural and organic ingredients from the Amazon.How cool?! There are also travel size options for the lotion ($14) and shower gel ($8.50) available. I’m very eager to try these new products out because if it’s anything like their shampoo formulations, I’m sure they’ll be hard to disappoint. I’m also loving the chic look that the green and gold packaging brings to this new line of products for Rahua. Though not surprising that these products are on the pricy side, I might pick up the travel sizes of the lotion and shower gel to try out first and put the luxe body oil on my wishlist.

Available at Rahua, Eco Diva Beauty, Integrity BotanicalsAlso for a limited time at Integrity Botanicals, receive a free Rahua Body Travel Size Shower Gel and Body Lotion with purchases over $100 using code: RAHUABODY. Follow the link here for more details.

5. Soapwalla Tasting Menu Set: I personally haven’t tried Soapwalla cream deodorants, though I know it is popular among many green and natural beauty enthusiasts. I didn’t know that Soapwalla also sold skincare items and the brand’s new Tasting Menu Set ($68) would be a great way to get introduced to a variety of Soapwalla’s bestselling products. This travel-sized sampler set includes six popular Soapwalla products in a cute  cosmetic bag that was custom-made for Soapwalla by Maptote. The Tasting Menu Set includes TSA-friendly travel sizes of the following products: Restorative Face Serum (2 drams), Luxurious Body Oil (1 fl oz.), Deodorant Cream (.5 oz), Almond Luxe Body Polish (2 oz.), Hand and Body Wash (1 oz.), Essential Facial Toning Mist (1 oz.), Essential Facial Toning Mist (1 oz.). I think this would be such a nice holiday gift to share with someone or to buy yourself! This set has definitely made me more curious to try Soapwalla skincare products. Available exclusively at Soapwalla.

6. Nourish Organics Skincare Products: This brand is known for their affordable and effective USDA-certified organic skincare products such as their moisturizing body butters and popular deodorants. Nourish Organics recently released a new line of high quality skincare products to their collection and 2 of them caught my eye. The Replenishing Argan Oil Balm ($19.99) is a non-irritating balm safe for face and body use formulated from sweet orange, palmarosa, and Moroccan argan oil for ultimate skin hydration and replenishment. This multi-purpose balm claims to soften and nourish skin, improve texture, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The Rejuvenating Rose Hip & Rosewater Body Oil Mist ($19.99) is a daily treatment for all-over body use with claims to balance skin and improve texture and tone as a body moisturizer,  after-sun soother, or anti-aging body treatment. This product features fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins to help hydrate, condition, and soothe skin. Both products sound great for the Fall and I love the bright, new vintage-inspired labels! Available at Nourish Organics.

    I’m so excited by the Tinted Moisturiser and Concealer! I’ve ordered a few little samples that I’m dying to swatch, including the new lip colours. I think the sticks might be too dry for me, but that red is gorgeous. 🙂 Beautiful selection of products – Pumpkin Spice sounds awful to me, but perhaps it’s a USA thing?? x

    • Kasey October 27, 2014

      Would love to see your swatches! I might have to pick up some samples too because I really have no idea what the shades are like in person. 🙂 And yes, I think that pumpkin spice is totally an American thing haha

    Does Spirit Beauty have samples of the new Ilia lipsticks already? I’m so coveting Linger but afraid it will wash me out.

    • Kasey October 28, 2014

      Yes, you can order these ILIA lippie samples on Spirit Beauty now! I agree that Linger could be a tricky shade for some, so it’d definitely be great to sample it. Eco Diva Beauty is also carrying these so I bet they would include a sample with purchase if you’d want to do that too.

  3. Audrey October 28, 2014

    Awesome roundup! I’ve never tried a lip crayon, but if they have a cult following, it must be for a reason! I’m not so jazzed on the fact they’re not always organic, but it’s so hard to find a good longlasting organic lipstain these days…


    • Kasey October 28, 2014

      I agree, those lip crayons are so tempting though… ILIA Beauty has some great lip crayons that use less synthetic colors and more organic ingredients, Burt’s Bees has also come out with some nice, affordable lip crayons too.

  4. ashtynne October 28, 2014

    I’m also lusting over Linger like Ru! Rahua is my favorite shampoo and smells so good so naturally I’m drawn to their body products.. so expensive though.. maybe with a Black Friday sale (;
    @Ru I know that beautyhabit will provide 3 samples of your choice per order (if ‘available). They have always given me the exact samples I’ve asked for.. Just let them know what you want in the notes at checkout

    • Kasey October 28, 2014

      Agree! I’d totally purchase the Rahua Body products during those great upcoming sales…crossing my fingers and being patient for the holiday promotions 🙂

  5. Mayette Villanueva October 28, 2014

    Uggghhhh Ilia is killing me. I want that TM so bad! That Bite set is ADORBS and I love that I can go into Sephora to swatch them. 🙂

    • Kasey October 28, 2014

      Riiight?! ILIA is seriously making my wallet cry more and more haha. Isn’t it such a relief when you can actually touch and swatch a product in person? Let me know if you swatch that Bite Beauty set! 😉

  6. Carina October 29, 2014

    I didn’t even know that Strike It Up was LE. I looove ILIA but I don’t think I should get any more…….. as of now. D:

    • Kasey October 31, 2014

      I feel you girl! I’m definitely in the same boat…I just can’t resist a good ILIA lippie!
