Guerlain · Terracotta Summer 2017

 

From the moment I tried on my very first Guerlain bronzer I was smitten, and that particular love affair continues with these latest releases from the Terracotta family. What makes this range stand head & shoulders above their competitors, is the finish upon the skin: radiant, luminous, and oh-so lusciously sun-glowy … but in a good & healthy way that doesn’t require any wait time to get you there.

NARS · The Orgasm Collection

 

ORGASM. This one particular word can be so evocative, or perhaps I should say provocative? When NARS first introduced Orgasm Blush, it was like the big bang (see what I did there?) of the beauty world and quickly became THE cult face product everyone needed to have. Fast forward a few years to the present and The Orgasm Collection because as we all know, one is never enough … (I swear, this practically writes itself)

CHANEL · Ombre Première Eyes Collection 2017

 

CHANEL is poised to launch the Ombre Première Eyes Collection 2017, consisting of new shades & products for eyes and brows, along with two new brushes. Lucia Pica, Global Creative Make Up and  Colour Designer for the brand, has gone back to the drawing board re: the formulations, because even as a lifelong devotee, I was unprepared for how amazing everything would turn out to be. Consider this my beauty love letter to CHANEL.

The Loop Duty Free Montréal · Spring Shopping

 

On my most recent pilgrimage to The Loop, I was sidetracked from my usual beauty foraging and wandered off instead into the newly renovated Rudsak boutique. Launched in 1994 here in my hometown of Montréal by Evik Asatoorian, it all began with an iconic black leather jacket which then went on to spawn a brand empire that now includes leather fashion, luxury sportswear, as well as accessories for women, men, & children. I actually fell quite hard for this gorgeous chocolate-leather travel bag and I swear that if I were travelling at that very moment, I would have scooped it up in a heartbeat (and at 20% off + no tax, it’s practically a steal) then promptly ditched every other bag I had. Sigh ….

NARS · Liquid Blush Collection

 

With the recent launch of NARS’ Liquid Blush Collection, the brand has managed to create a whole new cheek experience and these lovelies have quickly become the ones I reach for first, I might add. As Summer and warmer weather approaches, the last thing I want is to apply anything heavy on my face and these blushes are redefining what it means for makeup to look ‘natural’; I like to think of them as the perfect flushes of colour (oh, and how gorg is the press box they came in?).
