It’s that time of year again: hot AW17 collections are dropping and the makeup powerhouses are rolling out some super-stylish cosmetic/fashion collaborations to complement their ranges. I’ve shortlisted the top 3 brands and products that are leading the charge. Be quick though, these beauties are all limited edition so won’t be on the shelves for long!
Olympia Le-Tan is known for her quirky clutches and her collaboration with Lancôme is as pretty as you would expect. Just like her signature handbags, the palette and highlighter compact have luxury cotton embroidered covers whilst the mascara and lipsticks have cute, kooky designs that will make you want to display rather than use them. This is a collection to covet and treasure in equal measure.
Those clever folk at L’Oréal Paris have only gone and lined up a collaboration with Balmain – and it’s one that adds a little crazy colour and a whole lot of cool to the mass makeup market. Featuring a line-up of twelve limited edition Color Riche matte lipsticks, the L’Oréal Paris X Balmain concept is: ‘Three moods. Three tribes. United we are invincible’ and features 12 super hot high fashion models. Which is exactly what you would expect from Balmain’s Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing, mastermind behind those Rock, Couture & Glamazon lipstick tribes. Probably the best value high fashion makeup marriage out there.
Yup she’s done it again. After her debut collection in September 2016 surpassed all expectation, Victoria Beckham has just launched her second range with Estée Lauder and it’s wearable, sleek & super sensual. Inspired by an array of Beckham’s favourite cities – including London – there are lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, eyeliners and skin perfectors plus a brand new does-everything highlighter called Aura Gloss. If you dig VB’s signature look, you’ll love this. Super grown-up.
