Fashion designer Charlotte Ronson is launching a new beauty collection inspired by her friends and family. Available at Sephora and arriving just in time for New York Fashion Week, the lightweight and natural products are an extension of her free-spirited, downtown style ethos. The eye shadow palettes, lipgloss, and face powder even name-check close pals Nicole Richie, Rashida Jones, and her DJ superstar sister Samantha Ronson. Also, they're all totally wearable and include hair care, too!
We're particularly smitten with the bronze Nicole All Eye Need Eye Shadow Palette (named after the House of Harlow 1960 designer), which Ronson said was created to complement Richie's "natural glow." It's a palette that looks like it can work on just about anybody for both day and night, and we love that the shadows are crease-resistant, easy to blend, and free of parabens (aka naughty preservatives). The Closer Finishing Powder was inspired by Rashida Jones and creates a flawless, no-makeup look. Ronson says the powder is inspired by Jones' "effortless radiance," and that it actually filters light to give you a natural glow much like the star of the upcoming Our Idiot Brother. We need this NOW, please!
The Perfect Kiss Lip Gloss has mega shine and a lemon mint flavor. (Who can resist a flavored lipgloss? Not us!) It, too, reflects light and doesn't feel heavy. It comes in six different colors, but we particularly like the one named after her sis, Samantha, due to its "wear anywhere" shade. Charlotte really seems to love her closest peeps and even name-checks her mom, Ann Dexter-Jones, as the inspiration behind the A Perfect Mess Beach Hair spray, which is formulated with green tea to help restore damaged hair while giving you that tousled beach look. She says her mom taught her "that true style is about not trying too hard." We think the same applies to beauty.
