Chanel Vitalumière Loose Powder Foundation SPF15, $79: A powder foundation unlike any other, this formula goes on like a powder yet offers the finish of a fluid foundation (read: undetectable, second-skin effect). The formula has a medium-coverage, soft-focus finish that blurs imperfections and leaves the complexion with a healthy, luminous glow. The genius packaging keeps everything tidy and for a luxurious bonus, the included mini kabuki brush is the perfect application essential. Available September 1 at Hudson’s Bay.
Giorgio Armani Red & Black Ecstasy Collection, $36-38: Simple sophistication and classic glamour is at the heart of these two new launches from Giorgio Armani this Fall. First, a light-as-air mascara formula coats lashes for a thicker, longer look. Second, a gorgeous collection of red lacquered lipstick case housing 3 new bold, opaque red shades. Totally glamourous, and available this September at Giorgio Armani counters.
Elizabeth & James Nirvana Perfume Oils, $45: If you loved the perfumes, you’re going to adore these new alcohol-free, pure perfume oils. Not only are they perfect for travel, but I felt as if they lasted longer on my skin as well. I prefer to layer the two scents (many people I know do the same), and the oil formula is perfect for blending the two then applying to pulse points for in incredible olfactory experience. Available this September at Sephora.
Benefit Majorette, $36: This gorgeous coral cream-to-powder blush gives an instant boost to cheeks. It blends in flawlessly into the skin, and the peach-pomegranate scent is totally addictive. It looks totally natural and the compact is a sure-fire winner as a cute collectable. Layer it under your favorite Benefit boxed powder or wear it alone (pssst! We recommend pairing it with Coralista)! Available this September at Sephora
MAC Viva Glam Rihanna II Collection, $18-19: Possibly one of MAC’s most unique shade choices (especially for the typically universally-flattering VIVA GLAM collection), these surprisingly gorgeous, charitable lippies are just as fierce as Rihanna herself. The best part? Every cent of the selling price of any VIVA GLAM product goes to the MAC AIDS Fund. Available online September 8 at maccosmetics.com and in stores September 11.
Bobbi Brown Smokey Nudes Eye Palette, $78: If there’s one thing Bobbi knows how to do well, it’s create a sophisticated, flattering look for the everyday woman. This essential eyeshadow palette contains eight gorgeous, nude shades that are perfect for all looks work or play. I love the variety of textures and the compact packaging. Available September at Sephora (but if you really can’t wait, it’s up now on bobbibrown.ca).
