The Mara Hoffman x Sephora fall 2016 makeup line is the latest exciting beauty collaboration, which skillfully mixes the New York-based fashion designer’s wanderlust with Sephora’s expertise in the beauty industry. Already available for purchase at Sephora, this capsule collection features lip and cheek products, as well as makeup bags adorned with Hoffman’s signature kaleidoscopic patterns that have been taking the fashion industry by storm since 2000, when she launched her womenswear and swim line.
It’s not an average collaboration between a fashion designer and a renowned beauty retailer, since Hoffman focused on creating eco-friendly, natural-looking products that bring out the best in your facial features. Naturally, she was inspired by her own travels, yet she decided to use the rich, psychedelic-like colors as embellishments for the packaging and not for the actual beauty products.
What Mara Hoffman wants to celebrate with her makeup line for Sephora is effortlessly natural beauty, that beach look that doesn’t make you look like you are wearing makeup. To reflect that, this is what the Mara Hoffman x Sephora fall 2016 collection offers:
Mara Hoffman x Sephora Kaleidescape Natural Oil Balm ($30.00) (Limited Edition)
This multitasking balm is infused with a tantalizing lavender scent that will make your face, body and hair smell fresh and flowery. It instantly melts upon application, providing perfect nourishment and hydration to dried and irritated skin, while also soothing it and protecting throughout the day.
Mara Hoffman x Sephora Kaleidescape Cheek Trio ($28.00) (Limited Edition)
Formulated with Manuka Honey, shea butter and coconut oil, this set encompasses three universally flattering shades of a bronze, blush and highlighter that strive to give that highly sought-after glowing look to the skin. While the bronzer adds a sun-kissed touch to the skin and the highlighter illuminates it instantly, the blush comes to give that delicate sheen to high cheekbones.
Mara Hoffman x Sephora Kaleidescape Lip Gloss Set ($28.00) (Limited Edition)
The line also offers five shades of slightly pigmented, high-shine lip-glosses that feature shea butter and green tea extract for nourishing purposes. From nude beige to light coral and sweet pink, the lip-glosses come in feminine colors that will brighten up your autumnal look with a single application.
Mara Hoffman x Sephora Kaleidescape Tinted Lip Balm ($18.00) (Limited Edition)
Available in a sheer rose color, this soothing lip balm is a great solution to lip care, also working as a natural lipstick that provides the right color payoff.
Mara Hoffman x Sephora Kaleidescape Charcoal Brush Set ($64.00) (Limited Edition)
If you have finally made up your mind to invest in professional makeup brushes that will take your makeup application skills to a whole new level, make sure to consider this set, since the bright custom Mara Hoffman print on the wood handles will make your beautifying process much more pleasant and fun. The set features eye and face brushes with cruelty-free synthetic fibers.
In addition, the Mara Hoffman x Sephora fall 2016 makeup collection features cosmetics cases with vibrant prints that can also act like clutches, zippered pouches and a train case, the retailing prices of which range from $20 to $110. While the line isn’t the best in terms of offering many diverse makeup products, it’s a godsend if you want to invest in makeup essentials and get a new, statement makeup bag!
