A beauty splurge for New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve is one night where venturing into over-the-top territory is perfectly acceptable, dare we say encouraged. Beyond the dress, the shoes, the jewellery (oh, god and the hair, the manicure, and new stockings, we need to make a list, we’re not ready), we’re also adding to our want list Guerlain’s limited edition La Nuit en Rose makeup kit ($230, guerlain.com).
Designed by creative director Olivier Échaudemaison to celebrate his ten-year anniversary with the French luxury cosmetic company, it contains a lipstick pan of bright fuchsia, a more subtle shade of pink for cheeks and a round brush all adorned in black pearls and crystals and housed in a simple pewter-hued pouchette. Only 410 sets are available worldwide, with 16 in Canadian boutiques–at Guerlain in Montreal and Toronto, and Holt Renfrew in Calgary–so you know you won’t see anyone else at the party wearing your makeup.
