CHANEL · Nº5 L’Eau All-Over Spray & On Hand Cream

 

I’ve always been that girl who has wanted so badly to wear CHANEL’s original Nº5 perfume, but have never been able to — although I’m still holding out hope for a future point where the two of us will see eye to eye. That’s why when Nº5 L’Eau launched in 2016, my prayers were answered: here was a Nº5 version that fitted me perfectly. For Summer 2018, Olivier Polge, the ‘nose’ behind this iteration, has created a fun new way to sport this fresh scent, launching the All-Over Spray and matching Hand On Cream … and I’m betting that both are going to be spot-on perfect for the season.

This may very well be the true beauty version of Multiple Orgasms … (I couldn’t resist).

Butter London · Glazen Face Glow Crystal & Glazen Blush Gelée

 

When Lady Diana Spencer wed Prince Charles, I was up at 4 am to watch the televised ceremony; when Kate Middleton wed Prince William, I did the same … and I did not break tradition today either when I got up at 3:55 am to watch Meghan Markle marry Prince Harry. Yes, I’m a total royalist at heart, and what could be more fitting to commemorate this historic event, than with Butter London’s Glazen™ products? The homage to Great Britain in the name coupled with the brand’s roots that are based in the US — you could say that it was meant to be.

Guerlain · Summer By Terracotta 2018

 

From the brand that has mastered the art of flawless bronzing, Guerlain introduces Summer By Terracotta, including this trio of new (and of course, limited edition) products in the ever-expanding Terracotta family, all aiming to get you ready for the season: a unique new bronzer in cushion format, a highlighter made of unicorn tears (possibly), and a powdered bronzer that will definitely make you cry to actually mar its surface with a brush … but which is so well worth diving into.

Mother’s Day 2018 · Fragrance Edit

 

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I suspect some of you may still be undecided as to that perfect gift. Flowers are always a great option, although the blooms eventually fade and you’re basically left with an empty vase. Fragrance, on the other hand, is a bit more permanent and taking the time to select something special for that wonderful ‘mom’ in your life, is always a thoughtful gesture. That said, I’ve rounded up some of the latest launches to give you a helping hand … enjoy & Happy Mother’s Day! 🌸
