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
Isn’t this flower the very picture of Spring? Obviously inspired by the season’s invigorating spirit, Givenchy has created The Power of Color Collection for Spring 2019, filled with vibrant shades for eyes, lips, cheeks & nails … and after the brutal Winter we’ve just endured, I’m most definitely ready to bring on ALL the colour I can.

In her second homage that’s inspired by the interplay of light captured throughout her photographic journey of East Asia, CHANEL’s makeup director Lucia Pica has created a collection that can be summed up in two words: easy glamour. With Summer just around the corner, these are exactly the types of products I’m all about — fuss-free yet still put together, and in my opinion, no one does that better than CHANEL.
When Urban Decay first announced their collaboration with HBO’s Game of Thrones, my heart almost stopped: a beauty collection from one of my fave brands + my ULTIMATE FAVOURITE TV SERIES OF ALL TIME (yes, that deserved to be said in caps) = worlds colliding and in the best possible way. As a seriously massive fan of the show (I’ve even read all the books), I was beyond thrilled and when the collection finally arrived, and that feeling has grown exponentially upon playing with all the pieces. The game is most definitely ON.
For Spring 2019, Peter Philips — Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, has imagined a cotton candy world of light-hearted colour with the new Lolli’Glow Collection, and I don’t know about you, but after the apocalyptic Winter we’ve had, I’m so ready to take a ride on this beauty carousel.
