VEL­VET CRUSH

Hong Kong Tatler - - Beauty -

There’s some­thing about vel­vet fin­ishes that feels right in au­tumn. Look out for lip­sticks with matte ef­fects, such as Char­lotte Til­bury’s re­cently re­leased Matte Revo­lu­tion col­lec­tion. Til­bury be­lieves a matte fin­ish “flat­tens the lips for a wider shape,” while her lip­sticks use “break­through 3D glow­ing pig­ments” to cre­ate the il­lu­sion of fuller lips. Shades such as Glas­ton­berry, Love Lib­erty and Walk of Shame are per­fect au­tumn hues.

Mean­while, Dior’s new Dior­blush Cheek Sticks also boast a flat­ter­ing vel­vety fin­ish. These jumbo-sized twist-up cheek crayons can be ap­plied on the go for per­son­alised re­sults. Peter Philips rec­om­mends blend­ing the blush in small pats with your fin­ger­tips for a nat­u­ral-look­ing glow.

There are vel­vet touches all over Chanel’s Les Au­tom­nales col­lec­tion, inspired by au­tumn land­scapes and fo­liage. For eyes, the Il­lu­sion d’om­bre eye­shadow in Fleur de Pierre is a matte slate-grey that’s still lu­mi­nous, while the En­trelacs pal­ette in­cludes matte and satin shad­ows in beige and brown shades. The look ex­tends to nails with the new Top Coat Vel­vet, which brings a muted matte ap­pear­ance to any high-gloss lac­quer. There’s also a new ad­di­tion to the Rouge Al­lure Vel­vet lip­stick fam­ily: La Boulever­sante, a high­im­pact red with a strik­ing matte fin­ish.
