Givenchy La Revelation Originelle Spring 2016 makeup collection is exactly what we all need in January. Gorgeous highlighter, and refreshing pink for lips, nails and cheeks. There are also a brown eye liner, grey mascara and colourful eye shadows.
The star of the collection is definitely the uber gorgeous illuminator Poudre Lumiere Originelle (£41.50), an enhancing powder for an imperceptible, soft focus finish. It is a light pink highlighter that leaves the skin radiant and luminous. Quite possibly the most beautiful powder of the season.
There is also a new shade of the cult Le Prisme Blush (£32) in 41 Lune Rosée which combines the following shades: peach, light pink, rose pink and coral. Seems like another must have to perk up the complexion.
I love the idea of the brand’s Mister Scrub (£22 ) which is a gentle exfoliator in a stick format and Mister Gentlebalm (£22) which is a lip balm that combines a moisture booster and a colour enhancer to nourish, hydrate and naturally reveal lip colour.
The nail polish in this collection is the pastel pink Le Vernis (£17) in 29 Rose Divin
As for the eye products:
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.
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.
Here is a video with Wendy Rowe showing how she create the look for the SS16 show, and how to use the contouring pens. And it is always
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)
Contouring? Strobing? Move over! There is a new trend in town, and that is colour correcting. It was around for some time but you know that it is official when it ends up on Sephora’s main page. I actually posted about some products already, such as BECCA, YSL and tarte but there are tonnes of others.
