Marc Jacobs Perfect EDP
What does perfection mean to you? For Marc Jacobs, it’s about “embracing and expressing one’s true, authentic self”. Inspired by the namesake designer’s “Perfect” wrist tattoo, the new Eau de Parfum offers a bold juxtaposition of crisp floralcy and creaminess for the perfect balance of light florals and heavy aromas. The fragrance opens with top notes of daffodil and rhubarb – the former being a key ingredient that offers a slightly eccentric olfactory scent and the latter adding a sweet, fruity quality. At the heart is almond milk, which cocoons the fragrance in creamy vanilla to enhance the floral notes. It has a drydown of Cashmeran, giving it subtle musky, woody properties. Embodying this audacious fragrance as the face of the campaign is model Lila Moss, daughter of OG model Kate Moss. Available at Sephora and major departmental stores from 15th October 2020.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Hydration and Longwear
A glowy complexion is all the rage right now. To achieve that radiance from within, Chanel’s latest foundation formula is made with Healthy Glow Booster pigments that lights up the skin and leaves a satin finish. It is also formulated with Kalanchoe extract, which forms a barrier on the skin’s surface to protect it against indoor and outdoor pollution. Humectant ingredients such as glycerol help to maintain the skin’s hydration, while silicate powder prolongs wear without leaving a sticky texture on the skin. It comes in 12 different shades with buildable coverage and longwearing radiance. Available at Chanel boutiques now.
Dior Couleur Color Games Collection Limited Edition Palette
Dior has launched two limited edition eye shadow palettes to add a splash of colour to your lids. As the name “Color Games” suggests, these limited-edition versions of the iconic 5 Couleurs feature a mix of vibrant colours and soft hues to create fun, playful eye looks. From strikingly cool blues to warm brown and orange shades, the highly pigmented shades can be combined to create a smoky effect or to make a bold monochrome statement.
