Bon Noel from Givenchy
The Christmas Collection from Givenchy is truly a thing of beauty. Created by Nicolas Degennes, the brand’s iconic creative director, the Ondulations D’Or palette (£85.50) is all about sparkle and shine. In a star-spangled package the eyeshadow of black and gold fused into a deep bronze is super versatile and is heated and pressed for longer, lighter wear. Phenomen’Eyes (£22) separates the gold and black into pure colour dust that together creates an intense bronze. The Lash Sparkles (£19) is literally gold dust. It comes in the form of a transparent non-sticky gel that adds twinkling stars to the lashes and is used over mascara to enhance the eyes. The limited edition Le Rouge Givenchy (£24) gives you two natural rose blushes infused with gold: Rose Precieux and Violine Precieux. Available from next month.
Sleek MakeUP introduces Gloss Me & Matte Me
Sleek MakeUP is becoming increasingly well known for its affordable, fashion-forward products. The latest launch concentrates on the lips. Gloss Me is long lasting lip gloss with plenty of colour power as well as staying power. This versatile product can be layered over lipstick for extra gloss or used alone with six shades to choose from.
With Matte Me you get a lipstick that’s matte, but not cracked, designed to introduce hydration in a matte world. Packed us pigment yet full of moisture, they’re no smudging or budging which means matte is truly back to stay.
Blush Radiance from YSL
The YSL display for AW 2013 features two new Blush Radiance (£31) shades: no 9 Poppy Coral, and no 10 Pepper Rose will be added to the permanent line up. Blending matte and iridescent textures to create a shimmery look that highlights the cheekbones, these new shades create any look from natural to glamorous this autumn.
Clarins’ Autumn Forest shade collection
Clarins is quick off the mark with their autumn 2013 Collection Graphic Expression. The Eye Quartet Mineral Palette (£31) ‘forest’ shade collection sets the tone perfectly for autumn with hints of satin taupe, khaki green, intense bronze, and a pale gold. The shades compliment each other giving a subtle yet captivating earthy colour.
Glo Minerals Camo Kit
GLo Minerals introduces their Corrective Camouflage Kit (£15.95) which features four colour correcting shades to neutralise and conceal skin discolourations. Use the yellow to conceal mild redness, pink skin, under-eye circles, dark spots and black, blue and purple bruises. The mint conceals redness from blemishes, scars, Port Wine Stains, and rosacea as well as red blotches. Lavender is ideal for yellow, gray and green bruises, sallow complexions and under-eye circles on deeper skin tones. The neutral is used to conceal general skin imperfections, minor acne and undereye circles. For a natural-looking application use a Camouflage Brush or Precision Camouflage Brush. A Finishing Sponge or Liquid Foundation Brush can also be used for application to large areas of skin. Foundation base can then be applied over the top.
Illamasqua’s The Sacred Hour
Illamasqua’s new range, The Sacred Hour introduces Velvet Blusher in two colours: Peaked, a dusky rose and Sleek, a dusky coral. This long-lasting, matte blusher creates a flush of intense colour, delivering a velvet soft cream to powder finish. Build up and use over foundation for impact.
