Bands have been steadily releasing their holiday offerings, and I have a selection from NARS to show you today. Of course, François Nars always manages to add his own unique stamp on things, and this year’s grouping is no different. Drawing inspiration from 70s iconic punk fashion (hence the safety pins & studs), the shades of the Holiday 2018 Collection are all surprisingly wearable and relevant … with a bit of irreverence peeking through via the names, naturally.
Inspired by one’s “lucky star”, Dior’s Midnight Wish Holiday 2018 Collection (all limited edition) is a makeup lover’s delight. With holiday-themed shades to go with the intricately wrought designs — not to mention the most display-worthy packaging (seriously; just look at those nail polish bottles), everything shown would definitely be a hit gift … just make sure to grab a few items for yourself while you’re at it.
“I used my penchant for all that shines to try and reconcile elegance and fashion”
For this year’s Collection Libre, Lucia Pica drew inspiration from one of Mlle Chanel’s beloved talismans, the lion — a symbol which represents strength, courage, and even, dare I say, flamboyance (that mane, am I right?). Spotlighting the way interesting new colours can be seen when light & shadow reflects off mettalics, this collection is both bold and elegant … and absolute perfection for the holidays. Be warned, however: everything is limited edition.
Givenchy has recently unveiled two new highlighting products, one in powder form — Teint Couture Shimmer Powder, and the other a liquid — Teint Couture Radiant Drop, with both taking advantage of the absolute latest technological advances to create an effect that may be described as “zero texture”, but in my option is infused with a whole of lot of ooh-la-la.
One of the latest arrivals from Pixi Beauty, this Glow In A Box is truly well named, as the products it contained were [probably] designed to get you holiday ready … or maybe even visible from space, yes? Sure, everything here is utterly brilliant & sparkly and yet somehow against all odds, these products are also totally wearable. And since there really aren’t any beauty rules, who says you can’t wear shimmer during the daytime — or anytime you’re totally feeling it?
