Fancy Face ‘La Vie En Rosé’ anniversary bundle in limited edition
What you need to know: In October, the Canadian beauty brand Fancy Face is celebrating its 15th anniversary and opening its first store called The Rosé Room.

The bundle includes a brand new shade of creamy lipstick in a shade called Angel and a sheer, creamy lip glaze with a soft sheen in a shade called Whisper. As with all of the brand’s products, both the lipstick and lip glaze are made in Canada and are fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and parabens-free. “It’s incredible to celebrate our one year anniversary of the Rosé Room business and have been in the business with these two new products for 15 years,” said Brittany Gray, Founder and CEO, in a press release. “We’ve been working on these offers for months and couldn’t think of a better reason to post them in conjunction with such a big milestone. I think we can all use something to celebrate, feel good about ourselves and what could be nicer than using that perfect lipstick. “

They can be mixed and matched and used on any skin tone. Image and creative director Peter Philips said of his latest creations: “These palettes are multi-faceted products that warm the complexion and set a highlight to catch the light on the face.

They can also be used to highlight a moment and of course applied to the chest and shoulders to create a shimmering halo for the holidays. “
