Now that spring is here and summer is on the radar it’s that time of year where cosmetic brands bring out their summer specials which I always find are full of some of the most beautiful compacts. There is nothing chicer than having a luxury compact just balanced on your dresser or pulling it out of your handbag to touch up your lipstick. Trust me it’s better than using your phone with the camera turned round. Have a look at the list below to find your dream match and elevate your makeup collection:
The Cle De Peau Beaute Luminizing Face Enhancer comes in the most divine compact, the sort of compact which makes you want to carry everything round in one of those see through pouches from airport security just so everyone can witness it’s beauty all the time. And the shades are also amazing, just a hint on cheekbones and your skin glows.
For something with a bit more colour try Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint which is a duo bronze and blush and comes in a smooth, rounded gold compact.That 70’s vibe that means you can convince yourself that yes this is Scarface and yes you are Michelle Pfeiffer.
The Tom Ford Summer 2015 Eye & Cheek Palette may be a bit hefty for your handbag but it really does have everything you need in a perfectly balanced white & gold compact. Keep it on your dressing table and admire it every day.
Its not always about gold for a luxury product, the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Shimmering Nudes Eyeshadow Palette is beautifully understated in tortoiseshell and has an impressive range of shades inside.
The YSL Touche Eclat Blur Perfector is the bomb for anyone who wants to indulge their feminine side. With a glossy baby pink cover the mattifying powder-in-balm is perfect for touching up throughout the day.
If something more modern is better for you head over to NARS, the NARSissist Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette has a beautiful range of shades and would be suited to even the most minimal of interior decor.
