CHANEL · Les Indispensables de L’Été, Cruise 2017 Collection

 

CHANEL’s Les Indispensables de L’Été Cruise 2017 Collection draws inspiration from Mademoiselle and her love of sun-kissed hues, with special attention given to earth tones and pops of coral as counterpoint. Coco Chanel was a true visionary — ahead of her time both in fashion & beauty, and now Lucia Pica pays tribute to an icon with this latest release. After playing with these pieces for some time now, I’m happy to say that I’m truly loving every single item; big surprise, I know, coming from me the ultimate CHANEL fan, but you guys also know that I call ’em as I see ’em. So yeah, this collection is basically Summery perfection.

Oh, and on repeat right now is the short video below — I can’t take my eyes off the makeup AND the jewelry …

Guerlain · Terracotta Sun Trio & Aqua Allegoria Bergamote Calabria

 

From the brand that has literally written the book on bronzers (Guerlain actually created the first compact powdered bronzer), comes Terracotta Sun Trio — a beautiful triad that can multitask as well as enhance. And with warmer, sunnier weather just around the corner, there’s no better time to switch up your usual scent for something fresher … something like Bergamote Calabria, the brand’s latest addition to the Aqua Allegoria fragrance range. For the record, both of these lovelies are doing an amazing job of helping me to ignore the grey, gloomy & dismal rainy day outside of my window right now … le sigh

BEAUTYCOUNTER · Desert Sunrise Collection Spring 2017

 

The move towards “green beauty” has been steadily growing over the last few years, but non-toxic beauty products have not always been all that … sexy. There’s no reason to trade quality over safety, and California-based brand BEAUTYCOUNTER is shrugging off the industry’s notion that clean = boring, and this latest Desert Sunrise Collection couldn’t be a better example of this line of thinking.

Benefit · Cheek Parade, Galifornia, Hoola Lite, Dandelion Twinkle & Hoola Quickie Contour Stick

 

Over the years, Benefit has put out some products that have quickly become cult-faves and it’s not hard to figure out why; apart from a universal appeal and the fact that they deliver, there’s also that retro-cute factor that’s pretty much irresistible. The brand’s Hoola range has just received new additions, while sunny Cali was the inspiration behind a new blush shade. Speaking of blush, there’s even a entire posse of them on parade in a palette. And who knew that dandelions can twinkle?
