Charlotte Ronson For Sephora
Last night was the launch dinner in NYC and we got our very first hands-on look at the products… Let me tell you, they do not disappoint! The 14 sku line includes 4 eye shadow quads, a blush/ bronzer trio, a finishing powder, 6 shades of lipgloss, a body bronzer, and a beach spray for the hair. All of the products are named after Charlotte’s family and close friends (a.k.a. her muses), many of whom we’ve written about on this very site – (click the name to read about the fab lady from Beauty Banter) Eleanor Ylvisaker (lipgloss), my personal girl crush, Shoshanna Lonstein Gruss (luminizer, bronzer, blush trio), Dani Stahl (purple shadow quad), and Tessa Benson (lipgloss)
Early favorites include: The luminizer, bronzer, blush trio (above) – a.k.a. 3 X A Charm; All Eye Need Eye Shadow Palette in Nicole (as in Richie, colors are the perfect range of earth tones – above), A Perfect Kiss Lip Gloss in Annabelle (Charlotte’s hottie little sis, color is a glossy red that is perfect for fall with some mascara and eye liner and flawless skin) and Eleanor (color is a pearlized pink brown that is great for day or compliments a smoky eye for a night look), and definitely the A Perfect Mess Beach Hair (anyone who knows Charlotte is well aware that she has incredibly perfect beach-chic hair year round – finally, she’s bottled it up and selling it! Charlotte says this product is inspired by her mother, Ann Dexter-Jones).
All of the prices are very reasonable (ranging from $14.00 for a lippy to $22.00 for a shadow quad and $28.00 for the blush trio) and, as I mentioned earlier, the line is entirely wearable. While it’s not littered with of-the-moment colors, these are staple hues that will always be on trend. And I like how the range is small enough that you won’t be overwhelmed with choices – there’s something for everyone, but not too much that you won’t be able to decide.
Meanwhile, the pigments give great hue, the glosses are shiny and taste like lemon mint (yum) and the body glow bronzing gel gives a faux tan color that will have you looking like a summer goddess year round!
All products are available September 15 exclusively at Sephora, but you can buy online NOW (just in time for fall) at www.sephora.com.
