NARS · The Bronzing Collection – Part 2

Last month I treated myself to 3 products from NARS’ The Bronzing 2020 Collection that I had scored at the Sephora sale, and today’s post adds to that with several new launches. The very first bronzer I ever bought was the brand’s cult-fave Laguna and while my bronzer collection has since grown, it’s one I still reach for today … along with all its subsequent iterations, of course.

CHANEL · Les Beiges 2020 Summer of Glow

Without a doubt, CHANEL’s Les Beiges is the collection I wait for all year round and have done so since its inception.

NARS · The Bronzing Collection 2020

For 2020, NARS has added to the Laguna family with The Bronzing Collection and I scooped up these 3 lovelies at the recent Sephora sale.

Thankfully, my husband scooped it up in time to gift it to me on our recent 30th Anniversary! The man knows me very, very well …

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.
