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 Nordstorm, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges, Harrods.
Let’s take a look at the products:
Architectonic Eye Palette, $80
Inspired by urban architecture, the shades are mirror-like silver, concrete grey and gunmetal blue shadows in matte to shimmery textures.
Calligraphic de Chanel, $35 in 65 Hyperblack
Long-lasting, waterproof gel liner with a vinyl finish.
Crayon Sourcils ($29) in 30 Brun Naturel
Rouge Allure ($37) in 247 Ultraberry and
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
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.
“Covetable comfort meets confident color in a high-pigment formula that glides like a gloss, cloaks like a lipstick—and feels like nothing else. Semi-matte color glides on a stays supple without drying or feeling sticky. Developed with Oil Infusion Complex, an innovative concentration of precious oils, fused to create a smooth-glide effect. Fully coats lips on contact with smooth, saturated, semi-matte style.”
All shades are named after the ’70s counterculture phenomena. There are 13 shades, shown is No 54.
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge
One of my favourite lipstick range ever, so I am very excited about the re-launch of the line with a tonnes new shades, all of them being created by Lisa Eldridge they just have to be killer. These are not yet out but Lancome is available from:
There is nothing I love more than a beauty collection which was inspired, or even better, a collaboration, with an artist/photographer/someone from the world of culture. So I was obviously excited to see these new collections from MAC x Helmut Newton and NARS x Sarah Moon.
MAC release so many collections all the time, and the one which celebrates the work of Helmut Netwon really stood out to me. I have actually quite a few of his photos saved on my Pintetest. This is a small edition with carefully chosen products which capture the photographer’s work perfectly.
A palette of classic, neutral shades – Point ‘N’ Shoot (£25/$32), Liquid Eye Liner (£16), Upward Lash Mascara (£19).
There are also three Nail Lacquers (£10): Monte Carlo (red), Call Time (grey) , Berlin (purple) and the most exciting product – Retro Matte Lipcolours (£17.50/$21) which are promised to
