One of the things we love most about autumn/winter is the chance to stock up on the hottest beauty products to usher in the new season. And if those products are the result of a hot new beauty collaboration, then so much the better.
Luckily, there are already several brands teaming up for back-to-school beauty in 2017—here are three collections you won't want to miss.
Moschino x Sephora
Moschino's famously vibrant, colorful aesthetic is just begging to be channelled into a makeup palette, so when the news broke earlier this month that the Italian house was teaming up with Sephora to make it happen, beauty fans everywhere rejoiced. The seven-piece collection, designed by the brand's creative director Jeremy Scott, features a teddy bear eyeshadow palette, a lip gloss set, a highlighter compact, a miniature eyeshadow set, an eye mask, a compact mirror and three brushes, all presented in playful metallic and chainlink packaging.
Set to launch in August (exact date to be announced), it will be accessibly priced, with Scott quoted: "I learned very early on how much young people love my work, and sometimes they don't have the means to get it. This is another way for me to do Moschino and not sacrifice quality."
Balmain x L'Oréal Paris
Jeremy Scott isn't the only fashion designer working on a cosmetics collaboration—Balmain's creative director Olivier Rousteing has also been getting busy in the beauty lab, following the news that the French couture house is teaming up with L'Oréal Paris. The highly-anticipated capsule collection will not be unveiled until Paris Fashion Week in September, but we know that it will focus on 12 limited-edition new shades of L'Oréal Paris's Color Riche lipstick, and the brand has offered a sneak peek at one of them, a rose gold tone called 'Confidence'. Rousteing has already recruited several members of his ‘Balmain Army' and L'Oréal Paris brand ambassadors to star in the accompanying campaign, taking to Instagram to tease images starring models including Doutzen Kroes, Lara Stone, Maria Borges and Valentina Sampaio.
Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder
A year after making her beauty debut in September 2016 during New York Fashion Week with Estée Lauder, fashion designer Victoria Beckham is back with another cosmetic collaboration. A campaign featuring the style icon and shot by photographer Lachlan Bailey was released earlier this week to give fans a sneak peek of what is to come. Wrapped in sleek black and gold, the limited edition collection evokes the chic minimalism of the designer's eponymous fashion label. The collection will launch in September, with a lineup that includes a sapphire and orange eyeshadow duo, a skin perfecting powder compact, a mascara, an illuminating creme and a matte taupe lipstick in the shade ‘Victoria.
