CHANEL · Éclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder Spring/Summer 2020

Inspired by the soothing light (I’m guessing that would be at twilight) and powerful stillness of the desert, CHANEL has just launched their Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, with one of the star pieces being this Éclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder. This may be just me, but I find something so calming about the look of this highlighter — it’s like I can almost hear the wind whispering along the sand dunes. Too much? lol

CHANEL · Duo de Camélias

I couldn’t think of a more appropriate way to end 2019 than with this spectacular beauty, CHANEL’s Duo de Camélias Illuminating Face Powder. An online exclusive, this was one I was not going to pass up on — mainly because you all know about my obsession with this brand (seriously; click the CHANEL tab in the sidebar to see exactly what I’m talking about), but also because something about the pattern literally stopped me in my tracks. And then I realized: this would make THE perfect highlighter to wear on New Year’s Eve. I love it when all the stars are aligned this way!

All I can say is that there is nothing simple or boring about getting back to basics … especially where CHANEL is concerned.

CHANEL · Huile Velours & Coco Mademoiselle Intense

Launched last year, Coco Mademoiselle Intense continues to win hearts over to this day, because let’s face it: we all want to channel (see what I did there? lol) a little bit of that coveted French chic, n’est-ce pas? The newest addition to the Coco Mademoiselle family is the Huile Velours/Velvet Body Oil and all I can say is, you had me at … velvet.

CHANEL · Fall/Winter 2019 Haute Couture Beauty Edit

For her first solo CHANEL Haute Couture debut held this past July 2nd, Virginie Viard paid a breathtaking tribute to the House’s legacy, literally transforming the Grand Palais into a blown up rendition of Mademoiselle’s personal library. The effect was nothing short of spectacular, and while you’d think that stepping into the shoes of the late Karl Lagerfeld would be almost impossible to accomplish, Virginie Viard not only rose to the occasion beautifully, but managed to do it in a way that conveyed calm & serenity, albeit in CHANEL’s true spirit of luxurious grandeur.
