Get it first: make-up bag must-haves from the Sir John x WBeauty range
It’s time to ‘click and add to cart’ on our beauty editor’s favourite products from this limited-edition collection by Beyoncé’s make-up guru
When celebrity make-up artist and Beyoncé's beauty guru, Sir John, announced he was collaborating with Woolworths on a make-up collection, we were beyond excited.
Even more so when we heard the products were going to be 100% vegan, made from ethically-sourced ingredients, and cruelty-free.
The range, called Sir John x WBeauty Volume 1, officially hits Woolworths stores on April 19. But for the next 48 hours you'll be able to get your hands on these covetable beauty buys online.
It's a limited-edition collection, so if you're determined to add some of Sir John's magic to your make-up bag, "click and add to cart" sooner rather than later.
Here are the products our beauty editor Nokubonga Thusi thinks you should buy now:
"This palette is the hero of a collection which is 'all about the eyes'," says Thusi. "You'll fall in love with the beautiful packaging, the eyeshadow's colour payoff and the price tag, which offers great value for money — it's R299 for a palette of 16 shades."
"The eyeshadows blend like a dream and feel super soft against the eyelids; you can literally recreate Beyoncé's eyes in minutes."
LIQUID SHIMMER EYESHADOWS
"My personal advice? Buy two of these. They're my favourite products in the whole collection," says Thusi. "These liquid shimmers — available in a pack of 4 for R250 — are easy to apply and can be used to elevate any eyeshadow shade for both day and night looks."
"Don't be intimated by the seemingly bold shades of blue, red, purple and black," she adds. "The formula has a beautiful three-dimensional effect and gives a very subtle and complementary lustrous top layer to the eyes.”
"This creamy illuminating stick, R180, is the perfect 'glow-getter' for winter," says Thusi. "The stick's easy-to-blend, antique bronze-gold shade suits all skin tones — from the palest to the darkest — and can double up as an easy alternative to eyeshadow dabbed onto the eyelids."
