Olivia Palermo’s Ciat? Collaboration Has Arrived And It’s Gorgeous


by IMAGE
15th Oct 2015

Olivia Palermo’s hotly anticipated collaboration with Ciat? London has just dropped and if it’s an affordable way to feel as glamorous as the sartorial elite, here’s your one-way ticket. We spoke to the woman herself about the collection and how she’s all about the pay-off; there’s no point investing in a brand you love when they first launch and then finding their quality has waned over time. She endeavours to deliver maximum impact here with luxurious formulas, all at prices you can live with. Unlike the collaborations you’d likely find with MAC Cosmetics, this one’s incredibly accessible, wearable and sure to earn itself a prime position among your own personal favourites. Expanding the collection beyond nails, guest creative director Olivia has included lipsticks, and beauty palettes that reflect her own beauty style.

Satin Kiss - Cashmere
Satin Kiss – Cashmere €22

Housed in luxurious black and gold packaging, what you’ll find here is four Satin Kiss lipsticks, a smoky eye palette in nine of Olivia’s favourite shades, two gel kohl eyeliners with blending tips and two Cheekbone Cheat blush/bronzer compacts designed to contour and add warmth.

Olivia Palermo says, ?When developing the collection I wanted to create a variety of textures and shades in the same way I love to mix patterns, fabrics and accessories to style the perfect outfit. Many of the names were chosen to represent not only the hue but the unique textures specially developed for this collection. Others are eclectic touches from my own life and style – I can’t wait for you to play and discover the products I had so much fun creating?.

Hutch - 'My go to red'
Hutch – ‘My go to red’ €17

As for our verdict? The colours (our favourite is the lipstick in Satin Kiss – Cashmere) will work with almost every skin tone, the gel polishes certainly give your 30 euro manicure a run for its money and the packaging is good enough to eat.
