CHANEL · Neon Wave Collection

 

Inspired by vivid pop culture, CHANEL has just released Neon Wave, a capsule collection comprised of four muted eyeshadows in the brand’s new formula, that act as the perfect balance for the four retina-searing nail lacquers. Once again, CHANEL has managed to surprise me (not easy to do, given the scope of products I see) and what’s more, is showing incredible foresightedness with this bold move. Oh, and let’s just say that this is the first time I’ve ever actually wanted to wear neon along my nails.

CHANEL · Travel Diary Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

 

For me, there’s few things that are able to take the sting out of Summer ending — one of them being the arrival of CHANEL’s Fall 2017 collection. Taking cues from a California road trip, CHANEL Global Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica created Travel Diary. Inspired by the play of lights & colours on the landscape from earliest dawn to nightfall, as well as the vista from the coastline all the way to gritty downtown LA, these hues capture those fleeting photographic moments … in makeup form, naturally.

a-england · Sargent’s Vision

 

The latest release from a-england is titled Sargent’s Vision, and draws inspiration by works from American painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925). Founded by Adina Bodana — a woman that I’m so honoured to call my friend, each a-england collection is curated with exquisite detail and has a story to tell, more often than not centred around Adina’s love of the Edwardian era (one of my favourites as well, actually).

Buxom · Plumpline Lip Liner & Shimmer Shock Lip Stick

 

Buxom has been around for some time now, although it’s a brand I’ve yet to explore — until now, that is, so naturally when these lippies came in I was excited to give them a shot.  Forgetting for a moment the torture I put my lips through when working on a lot of swatches, I can’t resist a chubby stick…they’re just so cute, dammit.
