Beauty Roundup: A gorgeous new foundation, NARS’ first ever fragrance, and L’Oreal’s newest face!
If there’s one word to describe this week’s beauty roundup it’s NEW! We’ve got the latest foundation from Kat Von D Beauty (plus the gorgeous face fronting the campaign), NARS’ newest baby to mark 25 years in the industry, and L’Oreal’s newest Oscar winning face. We also have the official release date of Victoria Beckham Beauty, and deets on Lancôme’s quest to further empower women!
Lots of love for Lancôme
Lancôme USA, along with brand ambassador Zendaya, has partnered with non-profit organization ProLiteracy. In support of the Write Her Future campaign in the US, Lancôme gifted a $100,000 grant to promote literacy among women. The grant will also give women access to Voxy, a personalized language learner where adult students can apply for a free one-year license. We think it’s so fitting that Zendaya was part of the special day as she has been very vocal about empowering people and the power of education. And cheers to Lancôme for supporting real girl power!

If you ever wondered what 25 years of boldness smelled like, this perfume might just be it! To celebrate their quarter century anniversary, NARS Cosmetics has launched their first ever perfume aptly called Audacious! The perfume, which the brand says is “an abstract study of contrasts, where light meets dark and sensuality meets individuality,” has notes of white frangipani and smoke of incense, with ylang ylang essential oil, sandalwood, and notes from the tiare flower. Created by founder François Nars and famed perfumist Olivia Giacobetti, the perfume retails for $180 and comes in a stunning, clear glass bottle with matte black lid.
