New! CHANEL Fall-Winter 2020 Collection, Candeur et Expérience Act II

Back in 2016 and for her debut launch, Lucia Pica — Global Creative Makeup & Colour Director for CHANEL — created a collection around red, her favourite shade. For Fall/Winter 2020, she revisits this iconic hue with the Candeur et Expérience Acte II Collection … but with a pink twist that explores variations and tones, and still keeping it all within the brand’s recognizable signature. For the record, I’m LOVING every.single.piece.


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. The fact that it seems to launch around my birthday just makes it sweeter (coincidence?!). Something about the sleek beige packaging coupled with the whole summery vibe just speaks to me, and the 2020 iteration is no exception to that.


CHANEL · Le Volume Stretch Mascara & Le Liner Rouge Noir

Out of all the makeup products in the world, the one that I’d say can make you look instantly “done” & wide awake, has got to be mascara. And while not all mascaras are created equal, CHANEL’s Le Volume has been my go-to since its launch years ago. Recently added to the range is the new Le Volume Stretch* … it’s got quite a lot to live up to, so I put it to the test. The iconic Rouge Noir* family also has a new addition in the form of liquid liner, and even though I tend to reach for pencils, you can bet that I’ll be giving this one a whirl.

*Graciously gifted by CHANEL for my unbiased consideration


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. 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.
