Revlon · Youth FX Collection & a special photoshoot

 

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a Revlon photoshoot that was based on the brand’s latest range, the Youth FX™ Collection. When I was approached for this campaign, I was told that there would be “before” & “after” shots, as the scope was to show the effectiveness of the products. I actually physically tightened at the mention of the before part, mainly because I’m not used to displaying my naked face before the world, but never let it be said that I didn’t take one for the team. Products that can help me look as young as I feel? Yeah ….sign me up.

Burberry · Blush Make-Up Collection

 

The latest addition to the My Burberry fragrance family is the new Blush version and as the perfect accompaniment, the brand has also released a capsule Blush Make-Up Collection. Shades of pink are one of the most flattering and uplifting colours you can wear along the face, providing a brightness that you just can’t get with other tints and while utterly girly, there’s enough earthy mauve touches here to keep things from spinning into frothy territory. Thank God.

MAKE UP FOR EVER · New Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick

 

MAKE UP FOR EVER has added 9 new shades to their Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick range, but something tells me that the they’re not going to stop there, since these lippies hit cult fave status basically from the moment they launched this past Spring (the original 6 hues reviewed here). Then again, I’d expect nothing less from the brand that has pretty much redefined the way we look & wear colour.

Clarins · Graphik Fall 2017 Make-Up Collection

 

The Fall collections have been steadily rolling out at counters over the last month, and one that caught my attention was this group from Clarins, a brand that is rather underestimated in my opinion. The Graphik Fall 2017 Collection has a simple yet effective message: “express yourself” … words I practically live by. For the record, the ad campaign (below) pretty much sums up my #beautygoals for the season, including the wrist embellishment.
