CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 Collection · Backstage Beauty

 

 

This past May 3rd, CHANEL presented its Cruise 2021-2022 Collection, with Virginie Viard once again turning to Gabrielle Chanel’s personal archives for inspiration. Held at Carrières de Lumières in Les Baux-de-Provence (South of France), this former quarry with its towering stone-cut walls, instantly calls to mind ancient Egyptian structures (no? just me?). So totally unique and absolutely impressive … and now I absolutely want to go there.

OPI · Hidden Prisms Collection

 

 

 

 

OPI released this collection last year and while my post is a smidge overdue (blame the pandemic for screwing up my schedule), thankfully everything is still available. With shimmery rainbow-inspired shades, the collection consists of 6 in the regular formula and 6 in the Infinite Shine formula — and all just so dang pretty.

New Dior · Summer Dune 2021 Collection

 

 

 

Dior has just launched the Summer Dune 2021 Collection, and I’m 100% here for it. I mean, c’mon; few brands do details as breathtakingly beautiful as Dior, am I right? The collection draws inspiration from the play of light on sand dunes (oh, how I’ve missed the beach …), and I have a few key pieces to show you. Spoiler alert: they’re all ahhhh-mazing.

New skincare: Guerlain Abeille Royale Eye R Repair Serum

 

 

It’s no secret that I’ve been a huge fan of this brand for years; just type “Guerlain” in my blog’s search bar and see what comes up (hint: a LOT). So when this absolutely lovely package containing Guerlain’s latest skincare launch arrived, I was super excited — primarily for the products, naturally … but the accessories really sweetened the deal. By the way, as this is a skincare review you should note that I’ve gone into quite some detail, so grab a cup of coffee/tea, sit back & enjoy!

Summer beauty: Sol de Janeiro Bom Dia Bright Cream & more cult faves

 

 

The release of Bum Bum Cream catapulted Sol de Janeiro into mainstream consciousness and it’s pretty obvious why: one sniff of this decadent body cream, and you’re instantly transported to a sizzling Brazilian beach. Following up on that success, the brand has also just launched Bom Dia Bright Cream, and I’m more than happy to continue the vibe + bettering my skin while doing so. “Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking, and when she passes, each one she passes goes, Ahhhhhhhhhh” — aka: what I hear in my head after playing with all these products 🎵🎶
