Beauty News: A Stunna lip, makeup inspired by caviar & rubies, and new NARS palettes
Hello, December! With Christmas fast approaching, more and more brands have gift-worthy beauty drops that have us torn between shopping for our lists or ourselves. With this week’s roundup all wrapped up in a bow, you won't be short for gift ideas! Fenty Beauty’s exciting new addition is now available in the PH, and we're dying to find out what the mysterious teaser from Happy Skin means. What we do know is the secret to Kim K's (literal) head to toe sparkle, plus a much easier way to shop for gifts!
Caviar & Rubies for Christmas, anyone?
Bobbi Brown recently launched their Caviar & Rubies Holiday Collection in the Philippines, along with a few limited edition gift-ready sets. Try the Crushed Lip Color for an intense matte lip or the gorgeous Caviar & Rubies Eyeshadow Palette for a burnished holiday eye! They also have luxe sets like the Satin & Caviar Shadow & Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Palette, the Luxe Classics Mini Lip Set (10 minis in a box - so cute!), and a Travel Brush Set that comes in a stylish clutch. These are all available for a limited time only, so best visit your nearest Bobbi Brown counter ASAP.
She a Stunna!
It’s finally here!!! Fenty Beauty’s first ever liquid lipstick is now available on Sephora Philippines! The Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color (P1,200) is Rihanna’s first liquid lipstick for her cosmetics line, and it looks to be living up to its name. Promising 12-hour wear and a smooth, matte finish, the vibrantly red lipstick claims to be flattering on all skin tones, something that Fenty Beauty prides itself in. 100% cruelty free and in an amazing stiletto heel-inspired packaging, you can shop the Stunna Lip Paint here.
Rose Gold Rendezvous
When one thinks of the holiday season, shades like gold, silver, red and green always come to mind. But for those of you that aren’t such fans of a stark yellow gold or cool-toned silver, NARS might just have the palette of your dreams (and mine, too!) The new NARS Wanted Eyeshadow Palette ($59) is every rose gold fan’s dream palette! The 12-pan palette has matte, shimmer, and satin finish shadows that are perfect for creating a ton of different looks for the festive season (and well into the new year). Hues of pinks, coppers, browns and a stunning dark brown make this palette quite versatile, too, so you can do a more subtle everyday look. The palette will be available starting December 11 at Sephora, and on January 1 at all NARS boutiques. You know what to do with that extra Christmas money!
