Happy New Year – What’s to come from LiB this month!
Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

Happy New Year everyone!

As we roll (or, um, stumble) into 2011, you’d be forgiven for thinking we’d want to slow things down following our daily giveaways all through December. But you’d be wrong, oh ye of little faith! We at Latest in Beauty have all kinds of exciting things up our sleeves for the coming months.

The first half of January is set aside for a Full Body Blitz – and by that we don’t mean crash diets, detoxes or anything else silly like that. For the Latest in Beauty team, January is all about treats and indulgence, getting our bodies back on track after all that festive indulgence without a single mention of the word ‘diet’. Each day we’ll concentrate on a different body part, and there’ll be reviews, offers and giveaways along the way, so check back each day as we work our way up the body from feet to follicles!

During the second half of the month, we’ll be joining forces with some friends in the beauty blogging world to take a look back over the past few months and raise a glass to the products and people that shaped the last year in beauty. We reckon by now you all know that the likes of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, NARS Orgasm Blush and YSL Touche Eclat are must-haves, so we’re not going to be giving them any more praise. Instead, our New Year Honours go to the new products that have had us in raptures over the last 12 months. We’d love our readers to get involved, so if you have any recommendations, do let us know!

We also have plenty of new samples going live on the site in the next few days, from fabulous foundations to very sophisticated skincare. If you’re not already a member of our main site, Sign up now and fill out your beauty profile if you want to get yourself on the list!
