Natural. Polished. Super Chic. Tory Burch is all of these things as a quick glance at her Instagram account confirms. An American fashion designer and socialite, Tory is known for her easy-breezy way with fashion making it look effortless, luxurious and modern all at once. She’s now applied the same lifestyle ethos to her first fragrance and beauty collection.
First up the fragrance. Leaning heavily on Tory’s family heritage, the striking bottle is a nod to her mother’s bedroom vanity and the classic perfume bottles and atomizers that adorned it. The intricate fretwork top has fast become a signature of her brand and also found on her cosmetic line as well as the brass details in her Madison Avenue flagship store. As for the juice, it has a masculine note of Vetiver inspired by the smell of her father sensitively mingled with feminine touches of grapefruit, mandarin and tuberose. Like the smartest of women, it’s a scent that’s grounded but gracefully ambitious!
The Tory Burch Beauty Capsule Collection loves the every woman. A doddle to use, these key products instantly beautifies a range of skin tones. The Lip Colour in Pas du Tout swipes lips with a grown-up pinky nude, Lip & Cheek Tint in Cat’s Meow is one of my lust-haves. The ultimate youthful shade, it’s designed to add a hint of rosy pinched cheekiness and is lightly scented with notes from the fragrance. The Bronzer & Blush in Divine is well, just divine. Snapping open to reveal three skin brightening shades in pink, gold and ivory a single brushstroke brings any complexion a much envied sunkissed glow. As for the packaging, burnt orange and gilt brings an aura of joy. Tory nice!
