CHANEL · Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

My love for CHANEL is no secret, and if forced to pick a favourite range from the brand, than that award definitely goes to Les Beiges. The 2020 collection has launched in full on the US website, but sadly here in Canada only this one piece has trickled in.

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.

Marc Jacobs · Coconut Collection 2019, Youthquake & Velvet Noir Mascara

For beauty lovers, Marc Jacobs’ Summertime Coconut Collection is always hotly anticipated. I mean, coconut: doesn’t get more Summery than that, no?

Then there’s the recently launched Youthquake, with pineapple in the ingredients that makes it a perfect fit for the theme. I just love makeup synergy, don’t you?

For Summer 2019, Clarins has launched the Sunkissed Collection and I’ve also opted to show it along with some other recent releases — mainly because I feel they complement each other perfectly, and regardless of whether you’ll be travelling or not (if so, lucky you!), these are all amazingly useful pieces.

Guerlain · New Terracotta for Summer 2019

For Summer 2019, Guerlain has expanded the Terracotta family with several new additions — all of which means we now have even more amazing options in this incredible range. And in keeping with this brand’s fragrance lineage, there’s also a new member in the Aqua Allegoria collection; if the scent doesn’t grab you, I’m betting the bottle sure will.
