CHANEL· Premières Fleurs Dernières Neiges Collection

 

If you’re following me on Instagram (and if not, come join me @ommorphia 🤗), then you most likely saw my Insta Story the other day on CHANEL’s latest Dernières Neiges Collection that I previewed — and in particular this Première Fleurs compact (CAN $80.00 limited edition) that generated such a frenzy. In part, it’s mainly because of all the messages about it that I received, which pushed me to get my review out early … but mainly it’s because I couldn’t wait to swatch and begin wearing this gem. Spoiler alert: so GORG.

MAKE UP FOR EVER · Star Lit Powder & Star Lit Liquid

 

Holiday festivities may be over but here’s how you can keep the celebratory glow (and thereby the magic) going: with a little help from MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Star Lit Powder and Star Lit Liquid just not all shades at the same time, please.

I feel like I’ve been see-sawing between seasons, showing upcoming Spring/Summer Collections (CHANEL), then veering back to Winter with yesterday’s OPI post as well as today’s offering; oh well, that’s just the way things go at times.

OPI · Iceland Collection, Fall/Winter 2017

 

Before going to Iceland became the “IT travel destination”, this country with its ethereal beauty has long been on my bucket list of places to visit. As a Québecer/Canadian, I’m pretty sure I can handle the wintry climate there with ease, but something tells me that I’ll be too busy staring at all the incredible vistas to notice the weather (case in point: the stunning images of Iceland, below). As far as Fall/Winter themes go, OPI couldn’t have chosen better — this Iceland Collection is what Ice Queen dreams are made of. Even the name sounds romantic, no?

CHANEL Neapolis: New City Spring/Summer 2018 – Le Vernis

 

My first post of 2018 also happens to be my final review of CHANEL’s Neapolis: New City Collection: these four incredibly Summery-looking Le Vernis shades (CAN $32.00/each). Inspired by the colour saturated landscape of Naples, all four are a traditional take on the season — and then some.
