And We All Shine On
We had an internal debate this morning over whether or not it was too early to start talking about sparkly makeup, but the Elf on the Shelf toys we saw in a shop window on our way to the office made it abundantly clear that the time to embrace the holiday spirit is now. So, without further ado, we’d like to direct your attention to a new crop of limited-edition illuminating face powders now available for your buffing pleasure. For the third season in a row, Clé de Peau has released a new rendition of its Palette Vintage, a medley of shimmering pigments in white, rose, and yellow gold. The expertly embossed modular design makes it easy to concentrate your application on one gilded shade or use a blush brush to glide over all of the different sections for dimensional highlights. Guerlain has also stepped up its game with the Parure de Nuit Powder, a compilation of pale pink, white, deep pink, and blue green shades that doubles as both an iridescent powder (when applied with a vertical brush swipe) and a blush (when applied with a horizontal brushstroke). But our favorite way to add subtle sparkle to our complexion just might be By Terry’s limited-edition Terrybly Or Rose. Twenty-four karat pink gold microparticles and finely milled pearls are scattered on top of Terry de Gunzburg’s classic ultra-correcting compact foundation, so that once you tire of glimmering cheekbones and the like come January, you’ll be left with just the face-sculpting formula that imparts coverage and matte definition. It’s multitasking at its best.
