CHANEL · Éclat et Transparence, Cruise 2018 Collection

 

The newest release from CHANEL, Éclat et Transparence Cruise 2018, draws inspiration from the gorgeous sheer effect produced by the interplay of shadow & light, and I have most of the collection to show you here today. The textures and colours of Summer — warm air, rippling water, and hazy filtered light, are all so beautifully represented and form the key to understanding these pieces: it’s about the application, and more importantly, layering.

Urban Decay · Backtalk Eye & Face Palette

 

From the brand that knows a thing or two (more like a bajillion) about beauty palettes, comes Urban Decay’s latest release: Backtalk, an entire rose-mauve theme for both eyes and face … in one convenient package. Inspired by the Vice Lipstick by the same name, this palette is exactly what anyone with a blush-coloured addiction (like me) has been looking for, not to mention a nice departure from the usual nudes.
