Kat Von D · Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette, Lock-it Makeup Setting Mist & Petal Brightening Powder

 

I’ll put it out there: neutrals are my comfort zone, but I confess to an almost childlike glee when I received Kat Von D’s Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette. These happy colours also remind me of Easter and all things Spring, which is always a good thing in my book as it means warmer weather is not that far behind … that said, I guess that also means that this Makeup Setting Mist will probably be getting quite the work out too, no?

Clarins · Spring 2017 Make-Up Collection

 

The Spring 2017 Make-Up Collection from Clarins is … wait for it … absolutely lovely AND totally wearable. Is it just me, or does this brand seem to fly under most people’s radar? Regardless, there’s much to recommend and apart from some really well made products, they’ve also managed to infuse a touch of nostalgia with this latest release.

NARS · Loaded Eyeshadow Palette

 

NARS has been on quite the roll lately, creating some of the best palettes we’ve seen in a while; case in point are the recent Banc de Sable Highlighting Palette and the Unfiltered Blush Palettes. And as if those weren’t enough, get ready for the Loaded Eyeshadow Palette: a selection of 12 never-before-seen shades from this brand that will in all likelihood blow you away. At least, that’s what it did to me, and one might say that I’ve seen more than my fair share of beauty.

MAC · Cool Neutral Palette, Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara & Oval 6 Brush

 

So what do the Cool Neutral Palette, Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara and the Oval 6 Brush all have in common? Apart from the fact that they’re all from MAC, these products have become staples in my beauty repertoire. With the copious launches this brand puts out every few weeks, it’s easy to overlook standout pieces such as these that also happen to be part of the permanent lineup. How refreshing to not have the dreaded ‘limited edition’ designation to contend with, wouldn’t you agree?

Lancôme · La Palette La Rose, Spring 2017

 

 

You know it’s Spring when pastels make their much-welcomed appearance, and Lancôme’s La Palette La Rose is all about that soft, romantic elegance. Created by beauty guru and the brand’s Creative Director Lisa Eldridge, this palette holds a well-curated selection of shades that will work on everyone and in colours that may look dainty at first glance, but can pack a statement just the same … in an understated way, of course.
