Christian Louboutin Metalissime Rouge Louboutin Collection

 

There’s luxury beauty … and then there’s Christian Louboutin Beauté. With an ‘Ali Baba’s’ cave of beautiful objects at his disposal to draw inspiration from — as well as to gift his loved ones (so need to get my name on that list) — the designer recently launched Rouge Louboutin Metalissime, a limited edition capsule collection in time for the holidays. You better pray you’re not on the naughty list.

NUDESTIX · No-Makeup Makeup Box 2017

 

Canadian brand NUDESTIX is basically the adult version of Crayola makeup — and with the same level of fun, I might add. Founders Taylor & Ally Frankel (supported by Jenny, their brilliant mom & creator behind MAC’s Lipglass formula) are two young women who have a pretty good handle on what people want out of their makeup and have created this easy goal: how to simplify one’s beauty routine. Take this “no-makeup makeup box” I received a few weeks ago for example; no tools or assembly required, with the possible exception of mascara. Done & done.

Dior · Diorific Khôl & Matte Fluid, Precious Rocks Holiday 2017 Collection

 

 

It sometimes seems to me that I pretty much live in anticipation of each successive beauty collection from my favourite brands and while I know that part of the reason is due to the marketing machine at work, the other component is that I’m really just that passionate about makeup. Add to that my romanticism with the holiday period, and we’ve got the makings of the perfect storm … but in the best way possible. Enter Dior’s Precious Rocks Holiday 2017 Collection, inspired by luxurious gems + the urban rock edge of today’s woman. First out of the gate are Diorific Khôl and Diorific Matte Fluid — let the party begin.

The Man Ray Holiday 2017 Collection from NARS pays homage to the celebrated American visual artist and in particular, his contribution to the world of fashion photography. In a previous post I broke down the colour makeup collection but today it’s all about the Gifting Sets. To paraphrase Game of Thrones, Christmas is coming … #startshopping

Guerlain · Intense Liquid Matte Lipstick

 

Guerlain’s contribution to the world of matte liquid lippies are the recently released Intense Liquid Matte Lipsticks for Fall 2017, part of the KissKiss range. As with everything that this brand creates, I can assure you that no detail was overlooked in the development of this product and apart from ultra-saturated colour (which these definitely have), a comfortable wear was paramount — something that I couldn’t be happier to note, as my ongoing love-hate relationship with matte lipsticks so needed something like this. Thank you, Guerlain.
