This month’s Haul of Fame Most Wanted brand, MAC Cosmetics, has revealed it will be collaborating with Pixiwoo sisters, Samantha and Nicola Chapman. Acting as official MAC Makers, the duo will be creating limited edition lipsticks in their dream shades. Nicola comments: “We both also tried not to be selfish and make colours that are as universal as possible – obviously they won’t be for everyone but hopefully they will be perfect for most people.”
A NEW FAACE!
New skincare brand Faace has launched with a capsule collection of face masks: Period faace, Tired faace and Sweaty faace. The brand has been created to be prescriptive without the faff, so whether you’ve got five minutes or 20, the trio of say-what-you-see masks are uncomplicated, versatile and results-driven. Faace has been created by a pool of professionals – journalists, bloggers, makeup artists, aromatherapists, scientists and designers. Better yet, the brand will be supporting social enterprise Hey Girls to fight against period poverty. That means that for every mask sold, one pack of period products will be donated to those who have no access to them or funds to buy them.
RESPECT YOUR BIOME
L’Occitane Group has revealed the launch of its new skincare brand, Duolab. The brand understands that our lives are constantly changing, therefore so are the needs of our skin. A one-size-fits-all skincare solution just won’t do. Nor will the same routine day in, day out. Duolab offers a new approach to efficient skincare, turning traditional face care upside with a concept that empowers you to listen and adapt to your skin’s evolving needs by creating your own face care, picking the right active ingredients and textures from a collection of eight powerful capsules. The brand draws on L’Occitane’s expertise in naturality, ensuring your face cream doesn’t contain anything that might jeopardise your safety or the environment. Formulas are free from ingredients like silicones, mineral oil derivatives, synthetic fragrances and synthetic dyes. Products are biome-friendly and respectful of your skin’s natural ecosystem. The result? A freshly blended cream that is efficient, tailored, and preservative-free.
Space-suits at the ready, Good Girl Fantastic Pink heads for the moon as the latest collector edition by Carolina Herrera is revealed. The iconic fragrance, heeled flacon, and excess of carefree charm has been transformed in a glittered pink flask and outer box. The inimitable white-flower bouquet of jasmine and tuberose, complemented by velvety almond against an intertwining mix of dark beans made of tonka, coffee, and cocoa, resurges this season as a nod to the elegant streak of Carolina Herrera’s sparkling alegría de vivir. This 2020 collector’s edition will launch later on this month.
