There are a lot of new blushers out for Spring 2017, and I even posted a preview of some of the coolest palettes. But here is a preview of the creme de la creme of the blush launches, the most luxurious and high-end ones.
“An illuminating face powder that creates a soft glow with a hint of colour. It combines subtle rosy colour and illuminating pearls, the soft-as-silk powder creates a glowing, flushed effect on your cheeks.” the pattern of the blush is inspired by the antique wallpaper sourced from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.

There are so many new lipsticks out for Spring, as usual, that I have decided to feature 5 that look the most exciting, in my opinion.
First of all, it’s all about the Rouge Hermés, available from March. It seems like lipstick is the way to start in makeup, Tom Ford did the same, and look at the brand now. And it all makes sense, it is so much easier to buy a lipstick rather than a handbag, that way most of us can get our own piece of luxury. And it’s not a secret that beauty gives the highest revenue for high-end brands, no wonder they all are launching beauty and makeup.

As for Hermés, each lipstick will retail for $67, with a for a $42 refill, there will be 24 shades to begin with. The gorgeous and unique design was created by Pierre Hardy, according to WSJ.
I have already posted about some new lipstick launches but what about the eye shadows? Here is a selection of the most luxurious ones: Cle de Peau, Chantecaille and Tom Ford. Cream or powder, single or palette – the choice is yours. Let’s take a look.
Cle pe Peau are launching brand new Cream eye color solo – ombre crème solo ($45 / 6g) which are “dewy cream eye shadow that transforms into a silky powder”, and they look gorgeous. I wonder what is the shade of that burgundy one from Lucia Pieroni’s Insta photo. Is it 301? Probably, not.
Powder eye color solo limited edition – ombre poudre solo ($45 / 1g) “A silky soft long-lasting eye shadow that comes in three textures: shimmery, semi-matte and matte.”
Chantecaille Le Magnolia Eye and Cheek Palette ($83/£74)
I personally love me a good luxurious lipstick. Of course, there are a lot of more affordable options on the market but there is just something special about treating yourself to a high-end product. I always get myself a nice lipsticks after I’ve finished an important job project or just for a special occasion.
And here are three creme-de-la-creme lipstick launches.
“3-in-1 hybrid lipstick is rich like a balm, precise like a pencil and intense with premium pigment. In just one stroke, it reveals the boldest color impact all day long. Absolute coverage and velvet-smooth comfort upon application through an ultra-feminine gesture.”
The shade featured is Crimson Click
