New from Dior! Colour Games Summer 2020 Collection

Thanks to COVID-19 and the disruption the virus caused, Dior’s Color Games Summer 2020 Collection didn’t get to me until just a few weeks ago, but I wanted to share the pieces just the same — mainly because I refuse to let the season go (even though it’s now Fall). Inspired by “the playgrounds of summer“, this collection is meant to highlight Dior’s fun & athletic side … but I say it’s good enough for all kinds of activities, even the non-sporting variety.

New! CHANEL Joues Contraste 40th Anniversary Edition

In 1980, the CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio developed Joues Contraste blush, and since then has gone on to create more than 140 shades; 40 years later, this formula is still considered one of the best in the biz.

New! CHANEL Fall-Winter 2020 Collection, Candeur et Expérience Act II

Back in 2016 and for her debut launch, Lucia Pica — Global Creative Makeup & Colour Director for CHANEL — created a collection around red, her favourite shade.

For the record, I’m LOVING every.single.piece.

Back in 1999, François Nars caused quite the stir in the beauty world with the release of the provocatively named Orgasm blush and now 21 years later, he’s taking things up a notch with the launch of the Orgasm X Collection. Basically, you might think of these pieces as multiple “O’s” for the face … and yes, I went there.

CHANEL · Fall Winter 2020/2021 Beauty

For CHANEL’s recent Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Ready-To-Wear show, Paris’ historic Grand Palais (aka: the brand’s go-to venue), was transformed into a representation of the River Seine. With undulating curves and a sinuous catwalk polished to mimic crystal clear water, the looks presented fit a nautical theme via swashbuckling influences, thanks to ruffles a-plenty and gleaming admiral buttons — but what truly captured me, was the makeup. I’ve probably said a billion times before how “wearable” a particular look might be, but this one truly tops them all.
