Christian Louboutin Metalinudes Collection


Christian Louboutin Beauté recently launched the limited edition Metalinudes Collection, consisting of 3 lip gloss and 3 nail lacquer shades — all a playful yet sophisticated take on a classic nude theme. Of course, it doesn’t hurt the cause that this brand easily creates the most lust-worthy products available today … I mean, how can one possibly resist?



Urban Decay · Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat


Most likely drawing inspiration from nail polish toppers, Urban Decay has recently released 12 shades of Vice Special Effects Lip Topcoat that aim to give your pout that little extra brilliant kick. As someone who tends to stick to low-maintenance neutrals/nudes, I usually reach for a red shade when looking to amp up my lipstick game, but I have to admit that these toppers are are insanely cool-looking, loads of fun, and a great way to instantly transform any shade of lipstick. Plus I honestly can’t resist a bit of sparkle …



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.



NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg Summer 2017 Collection


There’s something about François Nars that I really admire, and apart from his obvious makeup artistry & photography skills, it’s without a doubt the fact that he doesn’t compromise his aesthetic vision for the sake of what’s trending. This latest collaboration with French actress/singer/model/muse Charlotte Gainsbourg is a testament to this philosophy, showcasing a selection of products which reflects this icon’s effortless laissez-faire beauty chic — and all without fanfare, bells, or whistles.



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
