Dior · Diorskin Forever Extreme Control Powder Foundation & Undercover Concealer

 

 

 

Dior has recently added to the Diorskin Forever range with a new powder foundation, Diorskin Forever Extreme Control (available in 12 shades), and concealer, Diorskin Forever Undercover (available in 10 shades) and I’ve been having fun testing out a couple of each these past few weeks. As someone who prefers a lightweight coverage in foundation, this baby is totally my speed — along with it being the perfect touch-up travel buddy AND providing a long-lasting flawless finish. Cue the angelic choir.

Guerlain · Lingerie de Peau Aqua Nude & Cushion Foundations

 

Several weeks ago I was invited to a “back to school” Guerlain media preview to discover several of the brand’s upcoming releases, and today’s post focuses on the newly launched foundations from the Lingerie de Peau lineup, Aqua Nude and Cushion. Both come in formulas that I personally prefer, I might add — but a hunch tells me that they’ll be finding favour with many others as well. Let’s just say that class was NEVER more fun!

NARS · Velvet Matte Foundation Stick

 

This Fall, NARS is introducing Velvet Matte Foundation Stick, a format that’s a first for the brand. Coming out the gate in an impressive amount of 20 shades, the colour range will definitely meet a wide variety of complexions but over & above that, is the utter portability of this product. Busy lifestyles have definitely met their … match.

NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg Hydrating Glow Tint & Nuit d’Encre Kohliner, Summer 2017 Collection

 

The last instalment of my NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg Summer Collection series is the limited edition Hydrating Glow Tint — a product that’s pretty much in a category all its own, being neither a foundation nor a BB/CC/DD (or any other letter of the alphabet) cream but something almost hybrid-like, inspired by Charlotte’s signature effortless fresh-faced style. Also squeaked into today’s post is Nuit d’Encre, the Kohliner shade that had been missing in my first review … and now my OCD self is happy that the set’s complete.

MAKE UP FOR EVER · New Ultra HD Face Products

 

The latest releases from MAKE UP FOR EVER’s continuously-growing range of HD products are all about prepping & finishing, but the best part is that you don’t need professional skills to accomplish the job. Adding to the list of their cult-fave Stick Foundation lineup, are 5 new shades that offer skin tone options to suit pretty much all complexions across the spectrum.

On a side note, the media kit I received was mind-numbingly gorgeous (the 2-tiered case, shown below) and along with all the new products, it also came filled with more foundations and concealers than you can shake a stick at (whatever that means). Blown away, I tell you. #gottalovetheseperks
