It would appear there’s a link between the universe and makeup, or rather, between the cosmos and cosmetics…
The word ‘cosmos’ and the word ‘cosmetics’ both stem from the Greek word kosmos, meaning orderly arrangement or decoration. Perfectly apt, given that makeup is used to decorate and improve the appearance of one’s facial proportions.
After all, clever contouring, careful application and a good choice of colours can enhance and even transform your features. To read more about the cosmos, cosmetics and ‘perfect’ facial proportions, read Yesterface’s article ‘Your Face is your Fortune’.
In the meantime, while we’re on the topic, I’d like to recommend the Comet Cosmetics Collection by Arbonne. The set includes a bold red lipstick named ‘Cosmic Kiss’ and Arbonne’s ‘Starry Night’ Eye Shadow Palette, both of which come in a glittery clutch bag.
Cosmic Kiss is long-lasting, easy to apply with precision, and boasts a rich red hue. The lipstick also has a moisturizing effect thanks to its mango butter and pomegranate extract ingredients, making it perfect for the colder months where chapped lips become a common occurrence.
The eyeshadow palette contains four shimmery shades: Nightscape, Solar, Stardust, and Meteorite, all of which include cucumber and mallow extracts. The eyeshadows are soft and easy to blend (try mixing the four at once for fun, your eyelids will end up looking like the aurora!) and the palette also includes a built-in mirror – handy for when you’re on the go.
However, while both products are lovely, the piece de resistance of the collection for me personally is the clutch bag. With tiny iridescent sparkles set against a jet-black case, this clutch is glittery without being gaudy. It also boasts four bejewelled finger rings – very on trend!
