A couple of weeks ago during a weekend trip to Las Vegas, I had the distinct privilege of swatching many of the products from the freshly debuted Surratt Beauty line, currently sold exclusively at Barney’s NY. Created by famed makeup artist Troy Surratt, this line features clean lines, stunning colors and a Japanese-infused aesthetic that embraces simplicity, utility and sheer gorgeousness!
The products that I currently own include:
1. Surratt Lipslique: An immensely hydrating, pigment rich “lipstick alternative” that applies sheer but is buildable to medium coverage. I own Fee Soie (a pale, slightly coral sugar pink) and Gamine (a nude, peach, pink hybrid). Close up swatches of these shades to come soon!
2. Surratt Artistique Blush: This finely milled powder comes in a delightfully petite sliding case (see video for more on this!) and boasts intense pigmentation, an invisible texture and significant lasting power. I own Guimauve, a light, bright baby pink that yields a very believable rosy flush.
3. Surratt Moderniste Lip Pencil: A luxe retractable lip pencil that glides on with ease and provides an excellent base for the lip color to come. I own Faire La Bise, a mid-toned nude with beige and neutral pink leanings that is the perfect companion for my cadre of pinky nudes.
4. Surratt Lip Lustre: Truly, a lipgloss of epic proportions! This moisturizing, pigmented formula is endlessly comfortable yet sticky enough to stay put. It is cushiony, plush, looks beautiful over lip color and fabulous alone. One swipe yields sheer color and a couple of coats creates a super shiny, opaquely tinted lip that lasts for hours. I currently own Coquette (a creamy nude baby pink), Soigne (a medium, neutral, slightly shimmery rosy pink) and Teint (a creamy white with no shimmer…designed to lighten any lip color…incredible!) and know that there will be more of these gems in my future!

Designed in a sleek and slim case, the Smokey Eye Baton fits perfectly into even the smallest evening clutch. Double-sided, this baton includes a retractable creamy eyeliner on one end and a twist-off, blendable, light-reflective shadow pencil on the other end.
