MAKE UP FOR EVER · AQUA XL Color Paint Eyeshadow

 

Beauty might be my passion, but art was definitely my first love (true fact: even at 2 years old, I could never bring myself to mar a colouring book illustration by colouring outside the lines), so when this awesome case of the entire MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint Eyeshadow collection arrived, my heart skipped a beat thinking it was a box of artist paint tubes. Then I did a happy dance when I realized that they actually WERE paints, but of the wearable variety — not that you can’t sport the other kind (i.e.: real paints, as I’ve done often enough in the past), but trust me … these are way better.

Dior · Metallics Fall 2017 Collection

 

We may be in the heart of Summer, but that doesn’t mean that the beauty industry is in sync, which accounts for today’s post on Dior’s Metallics Collection for Fall 2017. Drawing inspiration from editorial beauty and the play of light makeup can produce, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for the brand, has created a collection for the season that’s filled with rich textures, opulent colours, and even a few innovations thrown in for good measure.

CHANEL · Les Beiges de CHANEL 2017

 

CHANEL has recently added to the Les Beiges lineup with new foundations, blush shades, and finally … an eyeshadow palette. The premise behind this range is all about that ‘bonne mine/healthy glow’ effect that doesn’t involve an armada of products to achieve, thereby living up to Coco Chanel’s beliefs of liberating women from anything confining. Personally, with Summer’s heat (and humidity) upon us, I’m all about easy-peasy makeup that will not only look good but require the least amount of effort on my part to get there. Because I can be lazy like that (but still a little vain, if I’m being honest).

Givenchy · L’Autre Noir A/W 2017 Collection, Limited Edition

 

Building upon the success of their award-winning Noir Révélateur lipstick, Givenchy is set to drop L’Autre Noir Collection for fall 2017, an entire group of products centred around the theme of colour-changing cosmetics. Created with eosin which reacts to your own body’s pH levels, the colour revealed becomes unique to everyone. Now THAT’s what I like to call truly customizable makeup.

NARS · Highlighting Bronzing Collection Summer 2017

 

NARS is kicking off the season with a bang; introducing the Highlighting Bronzing Collection for Summer 2017, consisting of the Bord de Plage Palette and three new Velvet Shadow Stick shades. I don’t know about you, but looking at this group has me thinking that all I need add is a quick swipe of mascara and some lip balm, and BAM — Summer look mastered. PS: I wouldn’t say no to a beach thrown in as well …
