Urban Decay x Jean-Michel Basquiat Collection

 

The latest release from Urban Decay is a collaboration with Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century. With packaging depicting his artwork and colours inspired by his works, the products feature brand new and exclusive shades and what’s more, all are absolutely wearable too. By the way, the 3 palettes (eyeshadows & blush) have an extra unique feature: they all have a ‘hook’ built into the back so you can hang them up. Now that’s what I call beauty truly imitating art.

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 · Loaded Eyeshadow Palette

 

NARS has been on quite the roll lately, creating some of the best palettes we’ve seen in a while; case in point are the recent Banc de Sable Highlighting Palette and the Unfiltered Blush Palettes. And as if those weren’t enough, get ready for the Loaded Eyeshadow Palette: a selection of 12 never-before-seen shades from this brand that will in all likelihood blow you away. At least, that’s what it did to me, and one might say that I’ve seen more than my fair share of beauty.

MAC · Cool Neutral Palette, Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara & Oval 6 Brush

 

So what do the Cool Neutral Palette, Pro Beyond Twisted Lash Mascara and the Oval 6 Brush all have in common? Apart from the fact that they’re all from MAC, these products have become staples in my beauty repertoire. With the copious launches this brand puts out every few weeks, it’s easy to overlook standout pieces such as these that also happen to be part of the permanent lineup. How refreshing to not have the dreaded ‘limited edition’ designation to contend with, wouldn’t you agree?

Lancôme · La Palette La Rose, Spring 2017

 

 

You know it’s Spring when pastels make their much-welcomed appearance, and Lancôme’s La Palette La Rose is all about that soft, romantic elegance. Created by beauty guru and the brand’s Creative Director Lisa Eldridge, this palette holds a well-curated selection of shades that will work on everyone and in colours that may look dainty at first glance, but can pack a statement just the same … in an understated way, of course.
