Adding to its expansive lineup of makeup goods, Italian fashion house Gucci has now launched a new priming serum and foundation. The new release spotlights the brand’s ongoing focus on individuality and diversity.

Makeup can be used to construct the identity we wish to project, yet this does not mean it has to change what is already there; it should be about enhancing individuality, not concealing it.

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque

French maison Chanel presents Rouge Allure Laque, the first lip color offering extreme shine and intensity: a comfortable ultrawear texture that is easy to apply and wear, offering a satin brilliance that dazzles non-stop. Rouge Allure Laque reconciles all contradictions in a single creation. Its fluid formula fuses with lips and dresses your smile in elegance in all circumstances.

Delicate and creamy, water-resistant, it also withstands the rubbing and smudging of daily life. Its thin, supple mesh is composed of two agents: the first traps pigments for unchanging color radiance, while the second locks in a blend of oils for continuous shine. In a single stroke, this ultra-comfortable second skin imprints lips with lasting color and shine for up to 12 hours.

Rouge Allure Laque is available in 20 Vibrant Colors. Each color expresses all of its intensity with a savvy mix of finely ground pigments. Coated in precious oils, they reveal an extremely pure color presence. On application, a volatile oil evaporates, leaving nothing but vibrant radiance on the lips.

In addition to delivering extreme shine and intense color, Rouge Allure Laque cares for lips and envelops them in comfort. The skin barrier of the lips is perfectly preserved by an antioxidant complex of Sappan wood and vitamin E.

Colors for me are like musical notes. Combining them creates sonority and harmony, composing a range of colors like musical scales. The 24 colors of our lipsticks resonate together like piano keys. Having them all to hand allows you to play endlessly.

Jérôme Touron, Hermès Beauty’s creative director

Dubbed the ’24-Color Piano’, the Hermès lipsticks arrive in a gift box that, literally, is as long as a piano, spanning 88.3 centimeters. The the set is filled with 24 Rouge Hermès lipsticks designed by Pierre Hardy. The 24 number is in reference to the Hermès address in Paris, 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honorè, which means it could also work perfectly as an advent calendar.

Beautifully packaged in the label’s signature orange bag in addition to the box, the collection includes all of the signature shades such as ‘Beige Naturel’, ‘Rouge Orange’ and ‘Rose Lipstick’. So dear Santa – if I happen to find the Hermès Piano under my tree this year, I promise to play it every single day. A lipstick a day keeps the sorrow away!
