Clarins · Sunkissed Summer 2017 Collection

 

Several years while away on holiday, I came across a Clarins bronzer that basically took my breath away — and that was even before I swatched it or learned of its amazing price point. Since then, I always look forward to the Clarins Summer collections and this year’s version certainly does not disappoint: the 4 limited edition pieces of the Sunkissed 2017 Collection are all equally lovely and pretty much guaranteed to bring the heat on.

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

Clinique · Crayola™ x Chubby Stick™

 

I don’t remember when I received my very first box of Crayola™ crayons, but boy do I remember inhaling that unique waxy scent and staring mesmerized at the rainbow of colours. It actually pained me to even use them, as I didn’t want to mar their pristine beauty but that didn’t last long before I dove head-first into colouring. Well, upon receiving these Crayola™ x Clinique Chubby Sticks™, I had the same visceral reaction and was transported right back to my childhood. Has there ever been a ‘happier-looking’ beauty collaboration than this? I don’t think so. Oh and in case you’re wondering, I ALWAYS coloured within the lines.

YSL · The Street And I Spring 2017 Collection

 

 

The Spring launch from YSL is taking its cue from the street, although there’s nothing remotely gritty about this collection, that’s for sure. Bright pops of colour are made wearable by new layerable textures and formulations: now that’s what I call being street & beauty savvy.

Dior Addict · Lip Sugar Scrub & 006 Berry Lip Glow

The latest innovation from Dior’s Backstage Pros, is Lip Sugar Scrub — or as I like to call it, some much-welcomed lip care, especially at this time of year. Also adding to the Lip Glow range is a new luscious shade for spring, 006 Berry: a product that provides adaptive colour & major nourishment as well. Think of this duo as a lip dream team … pretty ‘sweet’, no?
