Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder · Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection


After the incredible success of Victoria Beckham’s first makeup collaboration with Estée Lauder that launched last year,  the formidable Posh Spice heard our pleas and has come out with even more to love. The Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection re-introduces ten hero products (Morning Aura Illuminating Cream, Java Sun Bronzer, and Modern Mercury Highlighter to name but 3 of the most highly in demand items), along with eighteen new products, as well as two limited edition sets. And all just in time for the holiday season, to help you channel your own inner VB ∗runs to the mirror to practice pouting∗.

NARS · Man Ray Holiday 2017 Collection | Gifting Sets


The Man Ray Holiday 2017 Collection from NARS pays homage to the celebrated American visual artist and in particular, his contribution to the world of fashion photography. In a previous post I broke down the colour makeup collection but today it’s all about the Gifting Sets. To paraphrase Game of Thrones, Christmas is coming … #startshopping



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.



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.
