8 for June
From a brand new Prada fragrance to coloured brows from shu uemura, here are eight beauty launches this month worth checking out.
Prada Spring/Summer 2016 Collection
Prada Candy Kiss
There’s a brand new Prada fragrance joining the Candy family. This one is called Prada Candy Kiss and it is based on a theme of obsession and repetition. Miuccia Prada wanted to create a loop of sensations out of a single note wrapped around the body. There is a monochord presence of musk that is paired with white cotton, vanilla and orange blossom.
MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Colour Sticks
These jumbo eye pencil sticks make it easy to apply a pop of vibrant colour on the eye. Use it a thick liner or all-over colour on the lid. These are particularly good in humid, hot weather as they won’t move. Available in 21 shades from Royally Blue to Sand Bar.
Shu uemura brow:palette in Cappucino x dark rose
Add a street edge to your brow with this new limited edition colour combination. The Japanese makeup artistry brand is launching a playful yet wearable brow palette: cappuccino x dark rose. It adds just a hint of colour to be an interesting accent. You can use it alone or as a base and build colour on top.
Diorshow Mascara in Mahogany
For those who want to experiment with a coloured mascara without jumping into a vivid blue or purple, this Dior mascara offers a hint of mahogany colour. Wear it just on the tips or full length from root to tip. It’s an elegant shade.
L’Eau Kenzo Electric Wave
This fruity-floral scent for her is light and fresh. “Water has no colour. So I wanted water full of colours, fruits, flowers, freshness and happiness. The world is beautiful.” So says Kenzo Takada. This is a new water interpretation for 2016.
Polo Supreme Leather for Him
This addition to the Polo fragrance collection is based on the opulent world of distinguished men’s clubs. It’s a masculine and warm blend of golden spices, smooth leather and rich honey. It was created by master perfumer Carlos Benaim.
Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick in Kiss Blossom
This may just be the perfect summer patio shade of lipstick: a soft Bohemiam pink. The hydrating formula works to plump lips and offers beautiful pigment. It’s from the Summer by Terracotta Collection.
Clarins Double Fix Mascara (new formulation & packaging)
One swipe of this formula and it makes any of your favourite mascaras waterproof instantly. It’s been a cult favourite for years. This new generation of formula works to keep the colour intensity high throughout the day. You can even use it to groom brows. What I love is it contains orange flower wax which gives the product a protective, filmogenic property.
These items are available in Canada at Hudson’s Bay stores.
