AW 16 Lipsticks: Armani, NARS, Lancome and MAC

I have already mentioned so many new lipstick launches here, here and here, but today let’s take a look  at even more new and  awesome releases. We all know that one can never have too many lipsticks. An although I personally can’t even fit all my lipsticks into my  drawers, I want all of these. Ahem.

And even if you do not need anything, theses days the brands create such beautiful images, videos and the stories behind each product that you feel like you have to indulge. Very clever strategy.

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
