Spring beauty releases: MAC, Dior, Guerlain, Illamasqua
Friday 15 April 2011
Here are some of the stand-out beauty product releases hitting counters this spring.
One of the most talked-about new nail polish lines this spring is Illamasqua's Toxic Nature: the name already suggests a mix between natural hues - the peachy Purity or grey mauve Stagnate - and toxically radiant ones such as the "acidic lime shimmer" Radium or neon orange Gamma. A bottle is $25.
If you're more into the current grunge trend, you will like Chanel's latest varnish set to become yet another "it" nail polish: the smoky metallic Black Pearl sells for $25.
Speaking of pearls: shimmering beads were the inspiration behind Dior's new Montaigne collection, a 13-piece range of pearly grays and baby pinks for eyes, lips, and cheeks (priced around $58).
Staying within a softer color palette, MAC Cosmetics' spring range called Quite Cute (from $13) is all about pastels. The brand will also launch the Bronze Everyday powders, skinfinishes, and legsprays (priced from $22 to $31) as well as its Primed for Perfection line ($23-$36,50).
Everyone who is still looking for the perfect shade of lipstick will rejoice at 25 new choices courtesy of Guerlain, which will release its new Rouge Automatique collection, with each shade named after one of the house's fragrances. They sell for $45 each.
This spring's hottest color, orange was worked into a whole range by Estée Lauder called Orange Crush. Get ready to stand out from the crowd with orange lipstick or eyeshadow, priced at around $20.
