New this week are a few long-awaited launches (like the NARS Audacious lipsticks), as well as a couple new-to-store ones (Charlotte Tilbury at Nordstrom, and that pastel Shiseido trio!) and a few unique items that caught my eye. If you’ve tried the new Micro.mini Beautyblenders, for instance, or that new Sephora makeup-removing lip gel, I’d be curious to hear what you thought of them! (And those new Bottega Veneta perfumes, hrrrnnnngh.)
New (& more than noteworthy)
Also upcoming this week is an event — and a very, very cool one at that. Manhattan residents are invited to the Clinique counter at Bloomingdale’s on 59th St. to receive a complimentary Smart Skin Consultation and create a customized smartphone case designed by fashion illustrator Brooke Hagel.
The event will be held this Thursday, September 18th, and while I obviously won’t get to go… I can only hope that one of you will take this opportunity to have a phone case custom-illustrated with Chubby Stick sketches!
What: Complimentary Smart Skin Consultations, a fall trend fashion preview, and a custom-illustrated phone case with the purchase of Clinique’s Smart Repair Serum.
When: Thursday, September 18, 6pm-8pm
Where: Bloomingdale’s 59th Street Beauty Studio (1000 3rd Ave at 59th Street, NY)
Pre-book an appointment at the counter or by calling (212) 705-2879.
Teased last week by @MarcelleTweets (the brand’s English Twitter account), the brand-new Marcelle Trio+ Eyeshadow quads ($15.95 CAD) are now up for grabs through Marcelle’s online site. Perfume and paraben-free, the quads promise three intense, velvety powder eyeshadows with one ultra-glittery shade – exactly the way I like it.
Available now in six different colour palettes (but I only have eyes for Smoky Chestnut and Chocolate Vanille, of course — how beautifully do those look like they would swatch?!)
I went over some beauty picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last Friday, but for those of you who aren’t Nordstrom members (or who live outside of the US), here are a few new makeup launches that anyone can buy!
This is a new style of widget, both on theNotice and generally on the internet, but I hope you like it. Let me know what you think!
(I’m especially intrigued by that limited-edition Estée Lauder Sculpting Foundation Brush):
It’s okay, The Body Shop has you covered. Shop their pre-boxed and pre-bagged men’s sets here — I hear the men’s White Musk range smells amazing! (PLUS: up to 70% off in their sale section, and 40% off most non-sale items. That means $2 lip balms, $5 gift sets, and $10 jumbo sizes!
Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic
The answer to the question everyone’s been asking is in, and the answer is: the new Aqua Matic pencils will be replacing the line’s old Aqua Shadow pencils, so stock up soon on any favourites you may have! (Their Aqua Cream eyeshadow pots will be unaffected).
The new pencils ($21 USD/$25 CAD) will be available in Canada at Sephora and Make Up For Ever Boutiques this July, and feature an automatic pencil that doesn’t require sharpening. For the initial launch, MUFE will be releasing ten shades in iridescent, diamond, satin, and metallic finishes.
