Karla Cosmetics have today launched the new Romance Palette (£69) their first multichrome palette.  The four-pan palette combines brand new velvet-soft matte eyeshadows along with the brand’s best-selling multichrome opal shades, in new pressed formulas.  These bespoke shades have been designed to complement each other and create limitless eye looks on any eye colour and skin tone with warm pinks, cherry-hued shades and deep burgundys, designed to take you from fun and flirty all the way to sultry siren.

Ultra-pigmented in rich tones, with minimum fall-out and maximum impact, the luxurious velvet powder shadows combine weightless texture with intense colour and are long-lasting with no creasing.  This new formula has a smooth cream to powder texture that melts into the skin for a seamless blended application, perfect to use for highlighted areas or to create multi-dimensional sparkle.


Alongside this stunning palette, Karla Cosmetics has also launched brand new brushes. The 6 Piece Essential Brush Collection (£65) is designed to cater to all of your eye makeup needs.  The super soft, laser-cut bristles are made of the highest quality synthetic fibres.  All brushes are designed to be used with cream, gel or loose eyeshadows and pigments.   The collection includes small oval shader, pack and blend, tall fluffy blender, short shader, smoky pencil and big buffer.  The brushes are vegan and cruelty-free and are perfect for sensitive skin.

Gender-free, vegan make-up brand, Jecca Blac have introduced their Brow Seal and Brow Block (£23 for the duo), an innovative brow duo that enables makeup wearers to shape, fluff, laminate, and even block the eyebrows. This revolutionary brow duo is the first of its kind as the Brow Seal can be used alone as a brow gel, or apply Brow Block after Brow Seal to achieve the perfect base for brow blocking in place of the traditionally used glue stick. Brow Seal & Block delivers 24-hour wear with flake-free, waterproof staying power. Drag artists who fully erase the appearance of their eyebrows to produce artistic masterpieces with their eye looks were the inspiration behind developing this duo.

Brow Seal (£14) this smooth formula boasts waterproof, 24-hour, flexible hold with one swipe that doesn’t flake when dried, all while being comfortable to wear and removes easily with makeup remover. Whether you want to go big and bushy, sleek and defined or love a laminated look, this is the essential step for holding hairs in place with a silky-smooth application.

Brow Block (£14) the revolutionary way to fully erase the appearance of brows. Once brows are flattened and laminated using Brow Seal, Brow Block is the ultimate next step for providing a flattened, seamless base for fully concealing and blocking brows in place of the traditionally used glue stick. With brows concealed, discover next level makeup freedom for drawing on an entirely new brow shape – or go brow free for experimental, editorial freedom to eye makeup looks.  Available now from jeccablac.


This year as the arts have continued to come back from one of the most challenging times ever, The Powder Group (TPG) are presenting a very special program to support their favourite arts organization – Provincetown Arts Association and Museum (PAAM) – through something they all love at TPG – lipstick!

TPG have once again partnered with Three Custom Color Specialists (3CC) to create a special lipstick to support PAAM. The special shade they created is TPG X PAAM 2022 (US $16). The shade was developed by Boston based makeup artist and TPG Pro member Phiphi Liang in partnership with 3CC co-founder Chad Hayduk and TPG Director of Artistry, James Vincent.  The shade is perfect for autumn/winter 2022 – a stunning, rich deep red with a creamy moisturising finish. Wear full force or blot for a cherry popsicle stain.  100% of the proceeds from sales of the shade will go directly to PAAM to support their endeavours in the arts and arts education.  Available from PAAM or thepowdergroup.


As the colder months approach, it’s the perfect time to opt for more cooler earthy tones and deep reds on nails to really embrace the upcoming seasonal change.  To follow the trend, swap the bright reds and experimental pinks with deeper shades to really get in the cosy spirit.  Try & Other Stories Pistachio Rapture (£6) or White Color Matter Acid (£28) by Off—White.
