MAKE UP FOR EVER · New Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick

 

MAKE UP FOR EVER has added 9 new shades to their Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick range, but something tells me that the they’re not going to stop there, since these lippies hit cult fave status basically from the moment they launched this past Spring (the original 6 hues reviewed here). Then again, I’d expect nothing less from the brand that has pretty much redefined the way we look & wear colour.

Clarins · Graphik Fall 2017 Make-Up Collection

 

The Fall collections have been steadily rolling out at counters over the last month, and one that caught my attention was this group from Clarins, a brand that is rather underestimated in my opinion. The Graphik Fall 2017 Collection has a simple yet effective message: “express yourself” … words I practically live by. For the record, the ad campaign (below) pretty much sums up my #beautygoals for the season, including the wrist embellishment.

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.

NYX · Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powder, Cosmic Metals & Lid Lingerie Shadow Palettes

 

A favoured brand with the younger set and budding makeup artists, NYX has been steadily gaining traction even with die-hard luxury brand-philes such as myself, thanks in part to several good formulations and even better pricing. Having a good colour selection that caters to a broad selection of tastes doesn’t hurt the cause either — neither does the fact that all the latest trends are duly represented, and all without breaking the bank.

Givenchy · Le Rouge Sculpt, Base Mascara Perfecto & Noir Interdit Mascara

 

The great French House of Givenchy is forever linked with Audrey Hepburn in my mind (Hubert de Givenchy was her favourite designer) and while the brand itself may fly under most people’s radar, it nevertheless steadily produces some amazing and innovative products, such as these latest launches: Le Rouge Sculpt Lipstick, Base Mascara Perfecto and Noir Interdit Mascara. Something tells me that Ms. Hepburn would have totally approved.
