#HauteList: The Best Beauty Launches Of June 2017
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. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (Rs 2,900)*
Smashbox is finally available in India and the product we are so totally crushing on is the Photo Finish Primer. This primer is pretty much considered one of the gods of primers, and gives you that perfect photo-filter effect.
The primer is oil-free and creates a smooth base to apply your foundation. Created for heavy-duty use, the product is perfectly suited for humid, tropical weather, as it helps keep your base intact.
*Available at Sephora stores in Mumbai & Delhi
Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess collection will give you a sun-kissed glow that a normal working day won’t let you achieve.
The Illuminating powder, especially, provides a bronze touch with a hint of shimmer! As you can see, the entire product is mesmerising.
If you’re looking to achieve that glow from within, then this illuminator will be the perfect partner.
3. Make Up Forever Aqua Matic Waterproof Eye Shadow (Rs 2,400)*
This Aquatic eye shadow pen will be your BFF this rainy season! Why? Because it’s totally waterproof! Ditch your boring eyeliner and bring some colour in your rainy life this monsoon.
The integrated sharpener assures that the tip of the pen is always sharpened as desired and allows for a gorgeous glide when applied. The product is easily blendable and doesn’t transfer on to the upper eye lid. Available in 10 shades, this eye shadow pen is one that shouldn’t be given a miss.
*Available at Sephora stores across the country
Lakmé has teamed up with designer Masaba to create a gorgeous collection of lipsticks! Remember the classic Lip Pout? Well, she’s given it an awesome retro twist.
Inspired by your childhood candies, this collection might seem a little out-there in terms of the packaging, but the colours are totally wearable.
This moisturising lip collection ranges from bright, pop colours to gorgeous brown nudes.
Have you ever wondered how celebrities always have their eyebrows on fleek? Well, it’s all thanks to precision! Nykaa’ s new Brow Chica Wow Brow pencil is the best way to get those streaks in perfectly.
There’s a thin line between gorgeous brows and outright strange — and that line totally lies in the pencil strokes you create. The pencil also has a spoolie, that allows you to blend in those strokes to create those seamless brows!
