January 2021 Makeup Releases I’m Excited For

With the new year comes new makeup releases that have me all kinds of excited! There have been plenty of new January 2021 makeup releases, and some of them have really caught my attention. One collection, in particular, I will be trying my hardest to get my hands on.

Here are all my favourite new January 2021 makeup releases:

Colourpop x Animal Crossing

I have been beyond excited for this collection! As a big fan of Animal Crossing, I can’t pass this up! The eyeshadow palettes all look really cute and the packaging is incredible. I love the names of the products too like Nook Inc, 5 Star Island Palette, Balloon Pop Super Shock Eyeshadow, Bellionaire Glitterally Obsessed…it’s all just so adorable. I’d love to pick up 3 out of the 4 palettes, sadly the What a Hoot nude palette doesn’t do it for me, as well as the two blush shades and the gold glitter. But, from the sounds of it, it’s going to sell out ridiculously fast so I doubt I’ll be lucky enough to get anything.

Charlotte Tilbury Lunar New Year Lipsticks

Charlotte Tilbury has recently released 3 new lipsticks for the Lunar New Year which all look stunning! It’s no secret that Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are my fave and I’m obsessed with the look of these. The packaging is beautiful and the shades are absolutely gorgeous. From a bright red and soft pinky nude to dark rose colour, I’m drawn to all of them! These lipsticks are limited edition sadly, but they are refillable so you’ll be able to re-use the pretty lipstick casing over and over.

Nomad Cosmetics Iceland Fire and Ice Eyeshadow Palette

Nomad Cosmetics is a brand I’ve only very recently come across thanks to their beautiful Iceland Fire & Ice Palette. I saw this palette on Instagram and instantly fell in love with the whole colour-story, packaging and uniqueness of it. I love the inspiration behind the palette. The colours look amazing and include both warm and cool tones and each pan has a fun design on them. It also seems so different to anything else I currently own and it really stands out amongst the other new releases too.

Melt Cosmetics Blueprint Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve never owned anything from Melt Cosmetics as nothing had really stood out to me before. But, the Blueprint Eyeshadow Palette immediately caught my attention. With 8 blue and bronze-toned eyeshadows that all look to be amazingly pigmented, this palette is right up my street! From what I’ve heard, these shades were all available as a stack and people loved them so much they made them into a full palette.

Melt Cosmetics Steel Reflect Gel Liner

Another Melt Cosmetics product that really grabbed my attention was the Steel Reflect Gel Liner from the Blueprint collection. This metallic, teal-peacock shade gel liner looks super pretty! And, I imagine it would be a lot of fun to create some summer looks with it.

Those are all of my top January 2021 makeup releases that I’m excited for! Let me know in the comments if you’re planning on picking any of these up. Or which new makeup products you’re excited for!
