Hermès is finally expanding its beauty sphere: This comes a year after it announced its foray into beauty — and with it, an irresistible collection of lipsticks that encapsulated its unique brand of romance and elegance.
The Famous Maison will focus on the cheeks this time, starting with a series dedicated to blush called Rose Hermès. The eight-shade Silky Blush collection is inspired by the vast palette of pinks within the Hermès universe. The mineral powder is loaded with the antioxidant powerhouse vitamin E and brushes on with a sheer, watercolour-esque glow that mimics perfectly sun-kissed skin.
The eight shades run the spectrum from Rose Abricot (a fresh, orange-pink) and Rose Ombré (a celestial peony pink), to Rose Tan (a golden pink) and Rose Nuit (a deep pink with blue undertones).
For the most Hermès of beauty experiences, pick up one of the two new blush brushes too, or better yet, the Rose Extrême Pommette Blush Case that was specifically designed to house your new daily necessity. The Blush Brush comes crafted with a lacquered wooden handle, brushed metal ferrule, and goat bristle fibres that are hand-assembled, while a smaller Travel Blush Brush comes with a metal handle and synthetic, easy-to-clean fibres.
Design is still very much at the forefront here; this time, the case by Pierre Hardy is a minimalist’s dream with white and gold finishing, and opens to reveal a round pan textured like the twill weave of Hermes’ scarves as well as a chic, off-centred mirror for touch-ups on the go.
