Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection

 

The latest release from Urban Decay is a collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. With packaging depicting his artwork and colours inspired by his works, the products feature brand new and exclusive shades and what’s more, all are absolutely wearable too. By the way, the 3 palettes (eyeshadows & blush) have an extra unique feature: they all have a ‘hook’ built into the back so you can hang them up. Now that’s what I call beauty truly imitating art.

Guerlain · Terracotta Sun Trio & Aqua Allegoria Bergamote Calabria

 

From the brand that has literally written the book on bronzers (Guerlain actually created the first compact powdered bronzer), comes Terracotta Sun Trio — a beautiful triad that can multitask as well as enhance. And with warmer, sunnier weather just around the corner, there’s no better time to switch up your usual scent for something fresher … something like Bergamote Calabria, the brand’s latest addition to the Aqua Allegoria fragrance range. For the record, both of these lovelies are doing an amazing job of helping me to ignore the grey, gloomy & dismal rainy day outside of my window right now … le sigh

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.
