Autumn is the time to be browsing foundations, as so many brands are bringing new ones out. So here are just a few that caught my attention. And it’s incredible how brands now do such a wide variety of shades, and some even demonstrate all shades applied.
Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet, £37. Comes in 15 shades.
“Longwearing foundation that naturally smoothes and evens out the complexion. Its blurring effect erases all imperfections and ensures makeup with a matte velvet finish.
Ultra-light, ultra-matte and ultra-natural, it instantly becomes one with the skin for a flawless complexion all day long”.

Here are a few new launches that caught my attention recently. They are from Hourglass, Chanel and theBalm, three brands I really love.
When I was placing an order on a new eye brow pencil (here), I was wishing for a slim version of the Hourglass eye brow pencil, and guess what? They just launched Arch Brow Micro-Sculpting Pencils ($28) in 9 shades. The tip is 1.4mm which makes it ultra precise.

Chanel duo bronze et lumièreBronzer And Highlighter Duo, $70 from Chanel
As all bronzers in this feature, it comes in 2 shades: Clair and Medium (shown). You get a matte bronzer and an iridescent highlighter. I looks pretty perfect to me.
How cool are the LIBERTÉ, EGALITÉ, FEMININITÉ writings on the bronzer? You get 4 shades in each compact to bronze and contour. You can get 1 Warm Liberte or 2 Warm Sensualite.
Clarins summer bronzers are some of the best on the market, I still really love
Mascara is probably the makeup product. And usually even those ladies who are not into makeup love themselves some mascara so I’ve decided to dedicate this week to mascaras, and we will start with looking at my all time favourites. I’ve selected six: five black and my all time favourite colourful mascara.
