CHANEL · Les Beiges 2019 Collection

Les Beiges from CHANEL is probably the collection I anticipate the most, and this year’s grouping is majorly exceeding ALL my expectations. From the classic packaging to the utterly wearable shades, this entire collection has my name written all over it. Actually, it has Coco Chanel’s name written all over it, but you know what I mean.

Dior · Wild Earth Collection, Summer 2019

I’ve said many times before that Summer collections are my favourites, probably because I’m a July baby, but it’s also because something about the seasonal hues really speak to me.

CHANEL Vision d’Asie: Lumière et Contraste Cruise 2019 Collection

“A woman is only as good as the light & peace she radiates” (Coco Chanel)

Urban Decay · Game of Thrones Collection

When Urban Decay first announced their collaboration with HBO’s Game of Thrones, my heart almost stopped: a beauty collection from one of my fave brands + my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE TV SERIES OF ALL TIME (yes, that deserved to be said in caps) = worlds colliding and in the best possible way. As a seriously massive fan of the show (I’ve even read all the books), I was beyond thrilled and when the collection finally arrived, and that feeling has grown exponentially upon playing with all the pieces. The game is most definitely ON.

MAKE UP FOR EVER · Artist Face Color

In the whirlwind pace of so many new — and frequently limited edition collections launching from all the brands, it’s nice to take a step back and give some love to something more permanent; case in point, the Artist face Colour blushes, highlighters, and sculpting powders from MAKE UP FOR EVER — a brand that definitely knows a thing or two about colour and more importantly, performance. After all, why not have it all?
