Best New Beauty: Red Alert

We never tire of painting our lips red and YSL’s new Vernis a Levres Vinyl–try Rhythm Red ($69)–is the perfect excuse to discover a new favourite. The clever formula delivers a glassy finish while delivering a hit of vivid colour. The gel-like texture and ultra shiny finish makes M.A.C Huggable Lipcolour in Flaming Lips ($50) a go-to for daywear.  Every handbag needs a little luxury inside and Dior Addict Lipstick in Too Much ($62) is our must-have. Lip-care and colour technology join forces in Estée Lauder’s new Pure Color Envy Hi- Lustre Sculpting Lipstick ($61 in Drop Dead Red); lips are amplified and defined with a burst of luminous colour.

NZFW: Backstage at Harman Grubiša

Last night Harman Grubiša kicked off New Zealand Fashion Week for another year, and before the show started, MiNDFOOD STYLE snuck backstage and discovered models adorned with moody merlot lips, barely there eye make-up and flawless skin.
