Guerlain · Météorites Le Parfum

 

 

Inspired by the brand’s cult-fave beauty pearls, Guerlain has recently expanded the Météorites universe with the launch of the first ever bespoke fragrance, Météorites Le Parfum. Master perfumer (and my friend!) Thierry Wasser wanted to capture the freshness and subtlety of the makeup pearls’ iconic violet scent — almost as though the wearer were entering the Météorites pearl workshop … and yes, there actually is a workshop where only 3 people know the exact formulation for these pearls, and mix every batch by hand; crazy, am I right? And although I’ve yet to visit this fabled workshop for myself, after test-driving this lovely scent for some time now, I’d say Monsieur Wasser has most definitely succeeded.

NUDESTIX · Rock N’Roller Eyeliner Ink, Love Me Nudes Kit & Nude(Art)Ist Box

 

NUDESTIX continues to impress me, and apart from the fact that it’s a Canadian brand (#CanadianPride 🇨🇦), I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with the 2 brilliant sisters & founders, Taylor & Ally Frankel. So here’s the deal: fuss-free makeup in the form of jumbo crayons that don’t need specific tools for application (in most cases, fingers will suffice), made with the finest ingredients AND they’re all super travel-friendly … what’s not to love? So when this package containing some of their latest goodies arrived in this absolutely adorable vegan makeup bag, let’s just say that both my inner child and the makeup geek in me was very, very happy.

Clarins · Water Lip Stain

 

As I prepare for my upcoming vacation, I’ve begun rounding up what makeup I think I’ll need (which is usually way too much, as usual) but this year I’ve decided to impose certain criteria — if only to make it easier on myself … but more on that later. That said, when the Clarins Water Lip Stain shades came in the other day, I began testing them out pretty much immediately and so far, they’re definitely impressing me enough to make the cut.

Men’s Fragrance Edit 2018

 

Growing up, fragrance was something that only the women in my family used; the most my dad ever applied, was Old Spice aftershave … the scent will forever remind me of him. As I got older and understood that there was a whole world of men’s scents out there, I began gravitating to those counters and more often than not, would spritz several varieties along my wrists. To this day, I actually enjoy wearing a more masculine type of fragrance — which brings me to today’s post. It may be all about the guys, but to paraphrase a famous jingle, “I like it too” (if you’re old enough to remember where this is from, leave me a note in the comments below!)

Guerlain · Terracotta Light

 

Guerlain launched their first Terracotta bronzing powder in 1984 and it became an immediate iconic beauty product. The newest release, Terracotta Light, adds to this storied history via a new lighter texture & vitamin-infused formula … and may very well turn out to be your BFF this summer.
