NUDESTIX · No-Makeup Makeup Box 2017

 

Canadian brand NUDESTIX is basically the adult version of Crayola makeup — and with the same level of fun, I might add. Founders Taylor & Ally Frankel (supported by Jenny, their brilliant mom & creator behind MAC’s Lipglass formula) are two young women who have a pretty good handle on what people want out of their makeup and have created this easy goal: how to simplify one’s beauty routine. Take this “no-makeup makeup box” I received a few weeks ago for example; no tools or assembly required, with the possible exception of mascara. Done & done.

Dior · Diorific Khôl & Matte Fluid, Precious Rocks Holiday 2017 Collection

 

 

It sometimes seems to me that I pretty much live in anticipation of each successive beauty collection from my favourite brands and while I know that part of the reason is due to the marketing machine at work, the other component is that I’m really just that passionate about makeup. Add to that my romanticism with the holiday period, and we’ve got the makings of the perfect storm … but in the best way possible. Enter Dior’s Precious Rocks Holiday 2017 Collection, inspired by luxurious gems + the urban rock edge of today’s woman. First out of the gate are Diorific Khôl and Diorific Matte Fluid — let the party begin.

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 · Terracotta Chic Tropic Sun Light Duo Bronzing Powder

 

For Summer 2017, Guerlain has created Terracotta Chic Tropic Sun Light Duo Bronzing Powder Face & Décolleté, a limited edition version of their iconic 03 shade that comes in the most precious-looking tin. From the brand that has literally written the book on sporting the most natural-looking bronzer, this little lovely will not only see you through the sweltering heat, but help you carry the glow well into the cooler months ahead — although I’m going to pretend that that’s not happening any time soon.
