Treat yourself to something special
19 August, 2018

To find out the makeup must haves this winter, we got in touch with some of our favourite make up stores in the city centre to get the lowdown on their favourite products. Who better to trust than those who work with the products everyday? Here's what they had to say…

Crushed Lip Color, $54 | Bobbi Brown, Britomart, 16 Te Ara Tāhuhu, Walking Trail 

Bobbi Brown's Crushed Lip Color leaves a stained flush of colour on the lips for a just-kissed look and the formula glides on comfortably, leaving lips hydrated and smooth with a beautifully soft, matte pigment finish. The Crushed Lip Collection is made up of 20 different shades and to find your perfect shade call 09-222 0035 to book an appointment with one of the Bobbi Brown Makeup Artists.

Gimme Brow+, $45 | Benefit Cosmetics at Smith + Caughey’s, 253-261 Queen St

Gimme Brow+ is one of those products that flies off the shelves. The tinted eyebrow gel containing tiny microfibres that adhere to skin & hairs, is quick, easy, and long wearing. It will make your eyebrows look naturally fuller and put together without the obvious ‘I’m wearing makeup look’. The custom tiny, tapered brush provides easy, mess-proof application to ensure your brow game is strong.

M.A.C Girls Palettes, $90 | M.A.C, Britomart

M.A.C Girls Palettes are a favourite amongst makeup artists, beauty bloggers, and lovers of makeup. Cross the lines in the bronzes and loudmouth pinks of Risk Taker. Or claim your crown in rich metallics under the royal influence of Qween Supreme. Each perfectly curated palette features eight creamy, high-payoff eye shadows and one highlighter shade that all come in bright, fun and unique packaging.

Lipstick Queen Reign & Shine Lip Gloss, $31 | Mecca Maxima, 191 Queen Street

Mecca Maxima are excited to have the latest lip gloss release from Lipstick Queen and the staff in store are raving about the Reign & Shine Gloss. You can get this little beauty in 6 different shades, each providing a beautiful, non-sticky, buildable sheer hint of colour coupled with ravishing crushed golden pearls.

Ceramide hydrating capsules $110-$195 | Elizabeth Arden, 62 Queen St

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide hydrating capsules is exactly what your skin needs this winter. These pea sized capsules are filled with a clinically and dermatologically tested formula that helps replenish and restore the ceramides your skin needs as you age and give you that extra hydration boost your dry winter skin needs.
