August, time for holidays or not? We may be packing our bags for a much-needed, exotic break, but beauty brands are as hard at work as ever. From new subscription boxes to dog-inspired makeup collections, here are the hottest new beauty launches you absolutely can’t miss:
#1 Allure And Butter London Arm Candy Nail Lacquer Collection
It’s one of the most exciting collaborations of the year. Allure Magazine has teamed up with butter London to create a collection of nail polishes that are highly pigmented and chic resistant. The vibrant, trend setting shades were inspired by the runways, street-style blogs, and even Pinterest!
#2 Sleek Makeup Barekissed Illuminator
Get ready to glow with Sleek Makeup Barekissed Illuminator. Perfect for highlighting, contouring, and strobing, this lightweight illuminator is available in four shades: Monaco (nude), Cuba (peachy coral), Casablanca (rosy pink) and Pomepell (dark tan). They can be applied on their own for a subtle look or mixed with foundation for an all over glow.
#3 MAC Haute Dog Couture
Ready to take makeup tips from your dog? MAC certainly hopes so. The new collection, Haute Dog takes both its shades and its names from our favourite pets. And they’re all surprisingly wearable and chic!
#4 Nails Inc Alice + Olivia Nail Collection
“Nothing completes an outfit like the perfect nail colour,” says Stacey Bendet, Alice + Olivia’s Creative Director. So, she teamed up with Nails Inc to create a flirty and sophisticated collection of nail polishes that’s perfect for fall. The nude, grape, red, and charcoal shades all have a glossy finish that’ll make your nails shine.
#5 Jimmy Choo Illicit
Alluring and mesmerising, Illicit offers an entirely unique olfactory experience. The zesty aroma of ginger flirts with a floral bouquet of rose and jasmine, before drying down to reveal its sweet soul – a gourmand honey and amber accord, with just a touch of sandalwood.
#6 Chantecaille Protect The Wolves Eye Shade Trio
A trio of white and blue eyeshadow shades embossed with the image of a wolf. Shimmery and long lasting they’ll make you both look and feel good. 5% of the profits are donated to the Northwest Conservation Group to support and protect wolves in national parks and forests.
#7 Play! by Sephora
Birchbox, beware! Sephora is finally launching its own subscription box service. For only $10.00 a month, you’ll get five deluxe samples of makeup, skincare, and haircare products centered around a theme, like dewy skin. All delivered to your door in a sleek black, white, and red box.
#8 Paul & Joe Fall 2015 Collection
Forget about vampy lipsticks and smokey eyeshadow palettes. Paul & Joe’s fall 2015 collection features pink and beige shades to help you achieve a glowy, natural look. They come in tubes and bottles decorated with flowers and birds. Adorable!
#9 Narciso for Her l’Absolu
A rich and intense musky floral chypre, Narciso For Her L’Absolu is an intensely feminine, mysterious, and elegant perfume that blends notes of jasmine, amber, sandalwood and patchouli. This powerful juice is housed in a sleek aubergine bottle that perfectly captures its essence.
#10 Christian Louboutin Lipsticks
Ok, these are out next month, but the news is just in and is too exciting not to share! Christian Louboutin is launching a new line of lipsticks. Pigmented and longlasting, these little works of art are housed in gilded Art Deco-style bullets. Our favourite? Rouge Louboutin, of course! It’s a crimson red that matches the famous trademark red sole.
