Matte Liquid Lipsticks: Chanel and Burberry

Matte liquid lipsticks are here to stay! More and more brands are releasing their versions with formulas becoming less drying and the shades becoming more sophisticated.

And here are two latest launches from such brands as Chanel and Burberry.

Speaking of Burberry, I think their new strategy is simply genius! As you know, it is a Fashion Weeks month, and besides the clothes (obviously) a lot of us are obsessing over the beauty looks at the Runway: hair, makeup and nails.  We often get a sneak preview of the products which will be available for the purchase only in months. But not anymore when it comes to Burberry! All the products Wendy Rowe and her team used on the girls are already available, both new shades and new products.

Such as Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet  in Fawn Rose available from Burberry’s website for $34

“Developed with a new, innovative formula, which combines rich pigment, smooth application and a whipped, creamy texture to create a bold, velvet finish that lasts for up to eight hours. Light-as-air  Liquid

Chanel Libre Makeup Collection for Christmas 2016

I am loving the official description of the new Libre  Chanel Makeup collection:

“Sheer meets intense. Matte and glossy collide. The artificial clashes with the real in a bold new makeup collection inspired by the material urban world. Striking contrasts of colours, textures, intensities and light capture a contemporary edge and thrilling moment in time.”

This collection with all the pink and silver details will definitely stand out among all the gold and red glittery offerings which are usually released for Christmas. There is also a new foundation! So far you can only buy the products from Chanel’s website but later on from NordstormBergdorf GoodmanNeiman Marcus, Selfridges, Harrods.

Let’s take a look at the products:

New In: Serums and Oils To Start The Year

Beginning of the year is a great time to invest in a new facial oil or serum, or better – both. I personally bought myself a rose oil from REN but here are three brand new products that you may be interested in.

And while some brands that were originally specialising in beauty are now launching skincare, brands that produce makeup  are now very much into launching skincare lines. Here are two examples – Bobbi Brown and Trish McEvoy. Laura Mercier launched a rose oil not a long time ago, too.

Bobbi Brown Skin Moisture Solution – Intense Rehydration Compound £29.50 from Selfridges and  $45 from Saks.
