'Thursday Tittle Tattle', is a Hope, Freedom, Love blog series that has quickly become home to some of my popular posts. The series is dedicated to breaking news of the beauty world. From time-to-time, Thursday’s blog post will be dedicated to news featuring; beauty and lifestyle news, events, discounts, and even a bit of fashion news thrown in too! This is my favourite time of year in the beauty world, as the focus has moved to spring. This week we’re talking about a new summer scent from Rituals and lots of new highlighting goodies. Keep reading for the latest beauty news that has caught my eye this week.

I think you would have to have been living under a rock to miss the commotion at BECCA. Just in case you have missed it, BECCA have released four new products with Jaclyn Hill, two of which will be available at SpaceNK very soon! I’ve already placed my order for the brand new Champagne Collection Face Palette (£48), which includes two highlighters, and three blush shades. The highlighters include the foamous Champagne Pop highlighter and the brand new Prosecco Pop. The blusher shades include Amaretto, Pamplemousse and Rosé Spritz.

The collection includes the Genuine Glow Priming Moisture Balm (£30), which is a lightweight, oil free balm to perfect, prime and hydrate.

All the products will be launched next month!
New serum from Neal’s Yard
I’m a huge fan of Neal’s Yard, I’ve used their roll-on calming oils for years and they are a staple in my handbag. So I’m pretty excited by the news that they are launching a new serum. The brand new Oil Free Hydrating Facial Serum, is not actually out until July, so we have a little bit of waiting to do. The new serum is made with oily skin in mind, combining willow herb and organic rose. It’s a lightweight serum that aims to hydrate, mattify, smooth and keep the skin shine free.

The new summer collection is the Ritual of Karma by Rituals Cosmetics. It’s inspired by ancient Hindu belief, where living with good intent attracts good karma. “Say good words, think good thoughts, do good deeds and if you stick to that, it will return to you in the same positive way”. The new collection includes products for both the body and the home. The scent includes white lotus and bergamot.

Bourjois announce summer collection
As usual Bourjois have announced a very exciting summer collection, which is packed full of products. For me the most exciting item is the Contouring Illusion Bronzer & Highlighter, which features their famous bronzer, paired with a lovely highlight. It will retail for £7.99, which I think is a bargain for Bourjois. They’ve also announced lots of tropical-inspired products, which have been packaged in a tropical flower print. There is a repackaged Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder, new Contour Waterproof Eye Pencils and a Limited Edition Tropical Festival Volume Clubbing Mascara. Plus a new shades of the Color Boost Lip Crayon and two new shades of the famous 1 Seconde Nail Polish. All these new products will be available on June 8th.
