MARGARITA VIROVA

Traditionally, we review the best New Year’s collections of cosmetics – today they are made not only by luxury, but also by the mass market, as well as by luxurious limited editions that delight young progressive brands. It’s up to you to decide who is more inventive, but we warn you that the amount of glitter in the 2018 New Year’s products can hurt your eyes.

Famous makeup artist Pat McGrath’s product and collection concepts have never gravitated towards minimalism, and the festive release of Opulence is definitely the pinnacle of glam aesthetics. This time, the packaging was inspired by precious stones: pink sapphire, aquamarine and ruby ​​- and the contents evoke thoughts of treasure chests. The collection includes three palettes of eyeshadows, shimmering with glitter, with which Pat McGrath Labs know how to work better than most: the “sapphire” Subversive Metalmorphosis did not even put matte shades. And in the limited edition, there were nine matte lipsticks in the most successful shades from previous issues – both neat nude and fatal dark ones.

It is difficult to find a New Year’s release of make-up products in which there will not be at least a drop of gold (which is more likely to please us), but this year Chanel is dominated by not only noble and not very metals, but also complex dark and light shades. The main object of desire is the La Palette Caractère lipstick palette, which has every chance of being used up to the end: it is a thoughtful set of five colors with a red undertone, from orange to brown. Another amazing rarity is the duochromic shade of Le Vernis varnish (passed under the name Opulence). And collectors will surely appreciate the Sous Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Powder with a lion’s head pattern.

New Year’s versions of L’Oréal Paris’s hit and not-so-great products are also packed full of sequins – and we don’t mind. The collection includes a shimmering one-piece eye shadow, a versatile Star Drops highlighter that can be mixed with tone or used for golden accents, a gold lash topcoat. Color Riche lipstick with stars on the stick is available in three shades, including nuclear purple. And not so many rows of shining eyeliners will be replenished with two shades of Glitter Fever Eyeliner: bright blue and modest, but cute light pearls.

The Fenty brand continues to be a beauty phenomenon in its own right, and it’s great that Rihanna and her team quickly developed a tradition of pampering fans with seasonal collections: limited products are even more extravagant than regular members. In this episode, you can see all the variety of metallic shine: the unmistakable star is a palette of multi-colored Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighters that can be used as shadows (and, most likely, find a couple of other unexpected uses). Also grab the smart lipstick sets or the Avalanche All-Over Metallic Powder Set with seven sparkling pigments and shine until next Christmas.

Another (of course) shining and daring collection has joined the ranks of Illamasqua products – while you can admire them on the brand’s website, and try to order individual copies at Lookfantastic, but it is even more convenient to wait for the appearance of the limited editions in the L’Etoile chain, which exclusively represents the brand in Russia. Connoisseurs of the bold British company will surely want to add new highlighter shades to their collection: 10th Anniversary Beyond Powder came out in two space shades Frost and Electric. Another rarity is the luxurious silver lipstick Antimatter Lipstick. Well, where without glitter: fans of glitter will definitely be delighted with the bright and pliable compact Jewel Vinyl pigments.

And here is another nice collection for those who want to smear themselves with glitter from head to toe or give a friend a nice beauty gift, but are not ready to spend a tangible amount of money on another fun “sparkle”. The budget brand Catrice did not start to shake with special originality and released a line of shining products for the holidays. A cool universal remedy that will come in handy for any occasion is the Glitter Storm Gel Highlighter: it shines beautifully with light pink gold, spreads well over the skin, including eyelids, and mixes well with other products. The duochrome Glitter Storm Liquid Liner also looks outstanding, especially in the “chameleon” shade of Midnight Blues.

Essence is an even more frivolous and hilarious brother to Catrice. Yes, we are not going to surprise you right down to the last points of the list: these products not only shine and shimmer, but again please with a low price. Grabbing without looking is the universal highlighter for face and body Holo Glitter Drops (such products are traditionally good for the brand) and holographic fine glitter Holo Glitter Topper. The collection also includes cute rhinestones-patches for the face: in the presence of good glue for eyelashes, they can be safely used several times.

Surprisingly, the Dolce & Gabbana New Year collection, made quite traditionally for the holidays (the main shades are red and gold that have not gone out of winter fashion for years), looks even fresh against the background of other collections, which create the feeling that a truck has finally turned over on our street with holographic. However, gold always comes in handy, and the brand has a taste for the most advantageous combinations of shades and textures: we advise you to hunt for a lipstick that gives your lips a light golden shine with Classic Cream lipstick in Baroque Gold and nail stickers with an aged gold effect, which are also very convenient for application.

This year we were lucky with the ambitions of budget brands – however, the Italian brand Kiko Milano has been making New Year’s collections for a long time and regularly. Products that are atypical for festive limited editions, a wagon and a small cart: among them are several shades of glitter with the attached glue for it, delicate blush and highlighters and shining eyeshadows (we recommend choosing bright blue or copper – well pigmented and with a neat shine). Most of all we like the compact liquid highlighter Liquid Highlighter: it is from the category of products for natural make-up, the fine golden shimmer does not irritate at all, and the pipette allows you to hygienically apply and mix it with other products.

And finally, let’s praise the smallest of the presented, but not at all “poor” collection of New Year’s make-up Clarins: since last year, the brand has begun to actively develop lines of decorative products, and most often they turn out to be very worthy. Highlighter for face and body Poudre Illuminatrice Teint et Décolleté – the standard of natural, but not boring shine, shimmer was also poured into limited shades of the bestselling lip oils Éclat Minute. But the most interesting product is the Mascara Top Coat Or, which can be worn alone or over another mascara.
