As we just marked the 10th anniversary of makeup visionary Kevyn Aucoin's death, it's only fitting that we acknowledge what an amazing makeup artist and person he was. Although he is gone, he leaves a strong and lasting legacy through his cosmetics brand Kevyn Aucoin. We've had this brand for a few months and all us staff have our own personal favorites from the range so we were so excited when the Lip Glosses and Lip Mattes arrived!
Kevyn Aucoin's 'The Lip Gloss' come in twelve different shades that leave lips shiny and glamorous without feeling greasy or sticky. They're packed with nourishing ingredients like sunflower seed and lanolin oil. I love the pale pink of Tulapina and the nudie brown of Beaugonia. The Matte Lipsticks go one like velvet and leave lips as smooth as silk. Sound like a romance novel? Trust us, you'll fall in love with these six different richly pigmented lipsticks that leave a matte finish and doesn't smudge for hours. Best of all, you don't have to worry about dry and patchy lips since these have moisturizing agents. Try any Kevyn Aucoin product and you'll quickly see why celebrities and the world's most beautiful women turned to him to make them look naturally flawless.
The power of 'organic' is not only associated with food anymore. Beauty can be green and really work as proven with cosmetics brand Vapour Organic Beauty. These smooth formulations made entirely with certified organic plants, minerals and vitamins are a dream to apply and leave beautiful glowing skin without compromising your eco friendly values. Even the packaging is recyclable!
Let's get to the good stuff i.e Vapour's Spring/Summer 2012 new additions. As soon as we saw the photos of the new Siren Lipsticks we started drooling. As seen in Lucky magazine, these are long wearing, moisturizing and flattering on all skin tones. Choose from Tempest (a feisty coral), Au Pair (a rich, velvet berry) and Coquette (amped up fuchsia).
Men's grooming line Art of Shaving has recently launched a new scent collection, Ocean Kelp. They wanted to offer men an option for a light, clean aroma range of shaving products and this one is certainly refreshing and energizing. Just like the rest of the range, you have the option of buying the product you love individually or together in a full size set for better savings. There's something sexy about a man who appreciates nice grooming products and takes care of himself. If you're looking for the perfect 'man' gift then this debonair men's range will leave both of you appreciating the power of a clean, close shave.
