Ah, the beginning of August – Spring is so close you can almost feel it in the air (which has lost a little of its deep Winter chill). It’s also the time of year when you can get away with starting to wear some of the gorgeous colours released in beauty houses Spring and Summer colour collections. If you’ve had enough of the cold like we have, say farewell to the earthy tones you’ve worn over Winter (not that we didn’t love them too), and hello to the brighter, bolder colours for the warmer months.
We love the six colours in the new Mavala Sunlight Lipstick Collection, a celebration to sun and life, which have been designed to match the sun and earth inspired Solaris Nail Collection. Treat your lips to hydrating colour with the “treatment makeup” formula of the Mavala Lipstick with Prolip (a combination of nourishing, repairing, and protecting ingredients). Choose from (pictured left to right) the bewitching soft pink of 591 Fantasy Rose, the elegant terracotta of 592 Terra Viva, the luminous solar of 593 Coral Orange, the chic scarlet of 594 Scarlet Red, the soft velvety beige of 595 Cloud Beige, or the suit-any-skin brown of 596 Terra Rossa. Lipsticks 4g RRP $27.95 each. NB, Image not to scale – the lipsticks are taller than the nail polishes in real life.
Pair the lipsticks with the gorgeous formaldehyde, paraben, and animal ingredient free Mavala mini nail colours in the Solaris Collection, and you’re set for a hot Summer ahead. Also pictured left to right, choose from the soft baked ochre of 976 Shiraz, the honeymoon brown beige of 977 Venezia, the canyon sky inspired deep pigment blue of 978 Jodhpur, the radiant desert hot orange of 979 Phoenix, the delicate sandy beige of 980 Mykonos, or the rich chocolate brown of 981 Cacao. Mini Nail Colours 5ml RRP $8.50 each. At these prices, you can but more than one, and colour your nails to suit your mood.
