AW18 Hottest Makeup: Westman Atelier, Burberry and Hourglass

Like it or not, but most Autumn 2018 makeup collections are already available, even thought you may not have had your summer holiday yet.

And here are the new launches that stood out to me, and I have chosen something for the lips, eyes and face.

First of all, there is a new make-up artist’s makeup line on the block. This time Gucci Westman finally revealed her long awaited collection. Apparently,  the procuts not only work as makeup but also should improve the skin.

I love the chic and modern look of the packaging, and would love to try the liquid blushes myself. So far the line is available from Barney’s ,and I would not mind trying the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick, $50.

  • Organic jojoba oil: tones and restores skin.
  • China clay: absorbs excess oil.
  • Berry flux vita: deeply moisturizes skin and preserves youthfulness.
  • Biomimicry technology: locks in hydration and guards against environmental impurities.
  • Biomimicry pigments: impart vibrant color to the skin.
  • Formulated without parabens, PEG, talc, phthalates, synthetic fragrances.

Sounds great, right?

Burberry Beauty: AW15, Contouring and SS16

Here is a  preview of what is new from Burberry, some things are already out, and some will be available only for Spring.

Although it seems that we have seen it all when it comes to contouring, the brand just released their version of the shading products. And I personally really love the look of them.

Burberry Face Contour - Effortless Contouring Pen Face & Eyes

 Effortless Contouring Pens Face & Eyes in Medium No. 01 and  Dark No. 02. are designed to  effortlessly sculpt the face, the results look very natural and the technique is fool-proof (watch a video below). Already available from Sephora for $37 and soon to be available from Harrods.

Winter 2020 Lifestyle Favourites

About time for me to write about my Winter 2020 favourites. If you want to check out my Autumn favourites, here they are.

So which products stood out to me beauty, style, books and shows wise?

Makeup

Let’s start with makeup, as there are just a few products in this category:

YSL Touche Eclat, £26 from John Lewis, Harrods, Selfridges and Nordstrom. Touch Eclat needs no introduction, I’ve lost my count on how many of these I’ve used up. It has that a light-reflective effect which makes you look fresher; the formula is not heavy or detectable on the skin. 

Charlotte Tilbrury  Beauty Light Wand in Spotlight, £29 from Cult Beauty and Nordstrom.

This is such a brilliant highlighter, it is more on the glowing side  but without being over-the-top. Exactly the kind of product you would expect from Queen Tilbury.  It gives you that incredible polished look.

Rouge Bunny Rouge new Glassy Gloss (review and swatches)

I wore quite a few of the new RBR glosses, I wrote a detailed review about them. Can be worn sheer stain-like or opaque and glossy.  The one I chose for this feature is Berry Sorbet, a  creamy opaque berry pink. For me it’s “my lips but better” kind of shade.

Burberry Cat Lashes Mascara, £24 from Burberry

 Soft and flexible brush allows you to layer and built up the effect. I find it to be giving great result, elongating the lashes, opening up the eye and lasting all day long (on me at least).

byTerry  Ligne Blackstar in So Black (review and swatches)

A long-time favourite. Intense, ultra black, long-lasting and
