CHANEL · Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour

 

Inspired by the power of numbers that were held most dear to Mademoiselle, CHANEL just launched Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour, part of the limited edition Collection Chiffrée. Displaying an intricately-wrought pattern which retraces all the iconic numbers from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, I almost couldn’t bear to mar its pristine surface with a brush … but I’m so, so glad I did.

Christian Louboutin Metalissime Rouge Louboutin Collection

 

There’s luxury beauty … and then there’s Christian Louboutin Beauté. With an ‘Ali Baba’s’ cave of beautiful objects at his disposal to draw inspiration from — as well as to gift his loved ones (so need to get my name on that list) — the designer recently launched Rouge Louboutin Metalissime, a limited edition capsule collection in time for the holidays. You better pray you’re not on the naughty list.

NUDESTIX · No-Makeup Makeup Box 2017

 

Canadian brand NUDESTIX is basically the adult version of Crayola makeup — and with the same level of fun, I might add. Founders Taylor & Ally Frankel (supported by Jenny, their brilliant mom & creator behind MAC’s Lipglass formula) are two young women who have a pretty good handle on what people want out of their makeup and have created this easy goal: how to simplify one’s beauty routine. Take this “no-makeup makeup box” I received a few weeks ago for example; no tools or assembly required, with the possible exception of mascara. Done & done.

Dior · Diorskin Forever Extreme Control Powder Foundation & Undercover Concealer

 

 

 

Dior has recently added to the Diorskin Forever range with a new powder foundation, Diorskin Forever Extreme Control (available in 12 shades), and concealer, Diorskin Forever Undercover (available in 10 shades) and I’ve been having fun testing out a couple of each these past few weeks. As someone who prefers a lightweight coverage in foundation, this baby is totally my speed — along with it being the perfect touch-up travel buddy AND providing a long-lasting flawless finish. Cue the angelic choir.

The Loop Duty Free Montréal Grand Re-opening of the Trans-Border Store

 

For the past year, I have been introducing you to all the wonders of The Loop Duty Free Montréal — on the international side. Today’s post focuses on the newly revamped Trans-Border store (for anyone travelling from Montréal to the US) … and I couldn’t be happier to see all these amazing changes. Somewhat overdue, this refreshed version of the Trans-Border store has totally elevated the duty-free game and created a shopping experience that will satisfy even the most discriminating buyer (like moi), with all the major beauty brands duly represented — along with exclusive products and ranges, such as Tom Ford Beauty and Céline Dion Collection handbags.
