NARS · Man Ray Collection Holiday 2017

 

Some of the most unique collaborative collections in the world of beauty come from NARS, and this latest in homage to celebrated American visual artist Man Ray, is a perfect example of that. With lush textures and a mix of contrasting shades, this is the brand’s Holiday 2017 offering — and one that I suspect will sell out quite fast (just wait until you see the Holiday gift sets and palettes … but I’ll save that for another post). Kiss. Play. Man Ray.

Revlon · Youth FX Collection & a special photoshoot

 

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a Revlon photoshoot that was based on the brand’s latest range, the Youth FX™ Collection. When I was approached for this campaign, I was told that there would be “before” & “after” shots, as the scope was to show the effectiveness of the products. I actually physically tightened at the mention of the before part, mainly because I’m not used to displaying my naked face before the world, but never let it be said that I didn’t take one for the team. Products that can help me look as young as I feel? Yeah ….sign me up.

L’Occitane en Provence · Immortelle Divine Collection

 

I have to confess that my obsession with skincare is basically in a tie with my love of makeup, and L’Occitane is a brand that definitely sits at the top of my favourites list. That said, every product I’ve tried from the Immortelle Divine range has never disappointed, so I was thrilled to hear that the lineup was not only being reformulated for Fall 2017, but that the Youth Oil has been improved with an even higher concentration of the star ingredient, Immortelle. Sweetening the pot even further, are the two new cleansers which been added to the collection — both of which I’ve been using daily and I’m going to call it now: it’s love 💛

Burberry · Blush Make-Up Collection

 

The latest addition to the My Burberry fragrance family is the new Blush version and as the perfect accompaniment, the brand has also released a capsule Blush Make-Up Collection. Shades of pink are one of the most flattering and uplifting colours you can wear along the face, providing a brightness that you just can’t get with other tints and while utterly girly, there’s enough earthy mauve touches here to keep things from spinning into frothy territory. Thank God.

Guerlain · KissKiss Matte Lipstick

 

For Fall 2017, Guerlain is fully embracing the matte lip game with the launch of two new ranges, KissKiss Matte Lipstick — the stars of today’s post, and Intense Liquid Matte (review coming soon). Created to feel as good as they look, these differ from many of their contemporaries in several ways, but I won’t spoil it for you …
