Pixi by Petra · Glow In A Box

 

One of the latest arrivals from Pixi Beauty, this Glow In A Box is truly well named, as the products it contained were [probably] designed to get you holiday ready … or maybe even visible from space, yes? Sure, everything here is utterly brilliant & sparkly and yet somehow against all odds, these products are also totally wearable. And since there really aren’t any beauty rules, who says you can’t wear shimmer during the daytime — or anytime you’re totally feeling it?

CHANEL · Eyes Collection 2018

 

For CHANEL’s Eyes Collection 2018, Lucia Pica (the brand’s Global Creative Makeup & Colour Designer), drew inspiration from the magic of the night — in particular the way colours can both hide and reveal themselves, whether under artificial or natural lighting.

Oh, yeah …

Starting things off, are this trio for the eyes to bring out your inner (and outer) goddess — flowing robes & crown not included.

CHANEL · Trait de Caractère & Silver Screen, Numéros Rouges Collection Libre 2017

 

The CHANEL Numéros Rouge Collection Libre Holiday 2017 has hit counters at top speed, and not surprisingly, is selling out lightning fast. The collection is actually centred around the theme of ‘the perfect red lipstick’ (review on the lipsticks coming soon), with today’s featured Trait de Caractère Eyeshadow Palette & Silver Screen Ombre Première meant to act in supporting roles — although we all know that as far as CHANEL goes, individual pieces really don’t like to play second fiddle. To paraphrase that famous line in Dirty Dancing “no one puts Baby in the corner”.
