CHANEL · Trait de Caractère & Silver Screen, Numéros Rouges Collection Libre 2017

 

The CHANEL Numéros Rouge Collection Libre Holiday 2017 has hit counters at top speed, and not surprisingly, is selling out lightning fast. The collection is actually centred around the theme of ‘the perfect red lipstick’ (review on the lipsticks coming soon), with today’s featured Trait de Caractère Eyeshadow Palette & Silver Screen Ombre Première meant to act in supporting roles — although we all know that as far as CHANEL goes, individual pieces really don’t like to play second fiddle. To paraphrase that famous line in Dirty Dancing “no one puts Baby in the corner”.

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.

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.

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.
