The Hottest New Beauty Launches That We’re Currently Obsessing Over
They say great things come in small packages and that is decidedly the case for makeup. At Appearances, its no secret that we are obsessed with all things beauty, in all shapes and sizes. So when the newest arrivals hit the market, you’re to hear it here first! Ahead, take look at our must-have list of all the delectable products that have recently been launched.
1. NARS x Erdem
You may have heard of Erdem Moralioglu, the fashion designer who has dressed the likes of Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, and Michelle Obama. Known for his floral obsession and dark colours, he collaborated with high street giant H&M for a capsule collection a season ago and is now joining hands with French luxury makeup house NARS cosmetics. The makeup collection boasts of a floral-inspired line full of rich jewel tones, vivid pinks, and gorgeous metallics. This 13-piece range includes eyeshadow palettes, blush, lipsticks, highlighter, and blotting papers — all of it packaged so pretty, you might just wish to buy it for the look alone!
2. M.A.C x Padma
M.A.C has very rarely collaborated with Indian divas, but they have now and she’s nothing short of a global icon. Beauty, brains, glamour and the fierceness to handle the world’s spiciest foods, Padma Lakshmi’s talents have taken her from actress to cookbook author extraordinaire, top model to host of Top Chef and now, to designer of a M·A·C’s latest capsule collection! The 17-piece line of lipsticks, eye pencils, blushes, lip gloss, and blushes have very direct nods to Lakshmi’s Indian heritage and are available in the most luxurious gilded packaging. P.S. We have our sights set on the hot fuchsia lipstick titled ‘Mittai Pink’.
3. Fenty Beauty’s ‘Beach, Please!’
Fenty Beauty’s Body Lava is finally here, as a part of its Beach, Please! summer collection — just in time for the summers. The two shimmering body illuminators in shades titled ‘Who Needs Clothes?!’ (a rose-gold) and ‘Brown Sugar’ (golden bronze) are now available on their official website. The trio bundle consists of an adorable Fairybomb glittering pom pom and a Body Kabuki brush.
4. Smashbox Petal Metal Highlighter
If you love highlighters as much as we do and have a stash worthy of inducing envy, you might feel like you’ve seen every formula, shade and texture out there imaginable. But every now and then we get a glimpse of a new shimmering product one that makes our cheekbones ache with longing. And, this was decidedly the case when we happened upon the Smashbox Petal Metal collection. An ode to all things rose gold, the collection is a collaboration with makeup artist Vlada Haggerty, who is renowned for her incredibly detailed lip art. Not only are they embossed with the most beautiful rose design, but they also promise to delivery a 10-hour radiant glow and are available in two shades; Rosemantic (soft rust with gold pearl) and Gilded Rose (gold with pink-gold pearl).
