#HauteList: The Best Beauty Launches In November 2016
There’s never a dull day in Beautyville. There are tons of products hitting the shopping aisles Every. Single. Day. Products that promise nothing but the best, begging you to upgrade your beauty game. While a true-blue beauty junkie will swear that it takes nerves of steel to not wilfully go bankrupt, one has to ask the pertinent question: are these products worth the hype? That’s where we come in. In our monthly Best of Beauty series, we go through the process of rounding up some of the best new releases in skincare, haircare, makeup, the works. We sift through the gimmicks and tall claims, and present to you products that definitely live up to the hype.
1. M.A.C. Lipintensity (Rs 2,350)*
The all-new Liptensity range from M.A.C. is a lot more pigmented that its usual favourites. The name, as it suggests, provides you with an intense colour and moisturises — a lot like the Creamsheen range, rather than their mattes. The gel formula effortlessly glides across your lips, leaving you with an almost satin-like finish. If you’re looking for a Christmas splurge on lip colours, this one is a must-have. After all, M.A.C. lipsticks barely fail us, right?
*Available at M.A.C. stores and counters across India.
2. Clinique Aromatics in Black (Rs 3,850 for 30 ml)*
This fragrance is perfectly suited for the contemporary woman, with top notes of graperfruit and bergamot, the floral scent of Jasmine and Neroli will slowly take over your senses. Clinique Aromatics in Black is a modern twist to the classic and elegant signature scent of a woman. A sensuous fragrance that would be an ideal gift for the lady in your life this season!
*Available at Clinique Stores across India.
3. Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Liquid Liner (Rs 2,300)*
The all-new Bobbi Brown liquid liner is a water-based ink that comes n 5 different pigments — Forest, Night Sky, Baltic Blue, Violet, and Golden Bronze Sparkle, all with a shiny, almost pearl-like finish. The formula is long-lasting and moves along the eyelids without cracking or fading.
