Since discovering Belmacz I always seem to have a product or two keeping my handbag company (honestly, if you ever see me with a pink lip it is 95% likely to be Infrared). Upon hearing about their latest release, a 24-carat gold leaf eyeshadow, I knew it was destined to become a favourite. Named ‘Stardust‘, Belmacz Beauty’s latest release is a warm copper cream shadow that offers a buildable but iridescent shimmer thanks to its skin-healing gold leaf.
Handmade beauty products don’t often come this luxurious.
Hyped up releases from cult beauty brands almost always deliver impeccable products, and the new releases from Belmacz Beauty are no exception. As a brand better known for their bijoux jewellery, Belmacz first launched a gold-leaf lip gloss in 2008 under the name ‘Glow’. The use of gold leaf was inspired by Renaissance master painters who used the same medium as well as blending minerals with oils to create a rich palette. Glow’s formula is rich to match, using vegan and healing ingredients like capric triglycerides and candelilla cera to pull together into a holistic and eye-catching product. Their latest power shade is Infrared, a bright neon red (bottom left of the photo), that is destined to become my new handbag staple.
In addition to ‘Glow’, Belmacz have just launched an otherworldly product called ‘Aura‘. Acting as a highlighter instead of a lipgloss, Aura contains 24 carat gold leaf as well as real crushed pearl to illuminate and add a lustre to the skin. Because it contains Vitamin E-enriched rosehip oil and cocoa butter, the effect the balm has on the skin is effortlessly airbrushed and youthful. The kind of product anyone would happily use from lips to cheeks to lids.
