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.

CHANEL · Travel Diary Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

 

For me, there’s few things that are able to take the sting out of Summer ending — one of them being the arrival of CHANEL’s Fall 2017 collection. Taking cues from a California road trip, CHANEL Global Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica created Travel Diary. Inspired by the play of lights & colours on the landscape from earliest dawn to nightfall, as well as the vista from the coastline all the way to gritty downtown LA, these hues capture those fleeting photographic moments … in makeup form, naturally.

CHANEL · Les Beiges de CHANEL 2017

 

CHANEL has recently added to the Les Beiges lineup with new foundations, blush shades, and finally … an eyeshadow palette. The premise behind this range is all about that ‘bonne mine/healthy glow’ effect that doesn’t involve an armada of products to achieve, thereby living up to Coco Chanel’s beliefs of liberating women from anything confining. Personally, with Summer’s heat (and humidity) upon us, I’m all about easy-peasy makeup that will not only look good but require the least amount of effort on my part to get there. Because I can be lazy like that (but still a little vain, if I’m being honest).

Urban Decay · The Naked Heat Collection

 

Urban Decay can be credited as the brand who made Naked part of every beauty lover’s vocabulary and with the upcoming launch of the Naked Heat Collection, things are about to get positively steamy (this collection is making it almost too easy to come up with titillating metaphors). Drawing on the latest colour trends, these hues may be inspired by rising temps, but can definitely be worn year-round with ease. Personally, I have not been able to stop reaching for this collection since the day it arrived … and I don’t intend to stop anytime soon, either.

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.
