Pixi Beauty · Pixi Pretties Collection 2018

 

Pixi Beauty products have been steadily gaining ground in my makeup routine, and as a girl who tends to lean more towards luxury beauty, no one is more surprised by this revelation, than me. Several weeks ago, a package came in containing the Pixi Pretties Collection for 2018 –comprised of the latest collaborative efforts between Pixi and 3 beauty influencers — and I couldn’t wait to crack everything open and, well … play. I’m seriously like a kid in a toy store whenever I’m around makeup and who can blame me when stuff like this comes in?

BEAUTYCOUNTER · Velvet Eyeshadow Palettes, Radiant All Over Bronzer & Satin Powder Blush

 

Lately I’ve been exploring “green” beauty options, in large part to BEAUTYCOUNTER, a brand that’s committed to producing luxury quality cosmetics and skincare that’s as well-crafted as many higher-end counterparts, but without any suspect or banned ingredients.

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.

NARS · Atomic Blonde Eye and Cheek Palette

 

When I heard that NARS was releasing a palette named Atomic Blonde, there was NO WAY ON EARTH that I would pass that up; for starters, it’s all about warm-toned neutrals (my jam) then there’s the name, which calls to mind the movie “Atomic Blonde” starring one of my all-time girl crushes, Charlize Theron. Lastly, NARS had me at ‘blonde’ (ummm…moi). In fact, this may very well be my favourite palette from the brand yet.

CHANEL · Apotheosis Le Mat de CHANEL, Fall/Winter 2018

 

For Fall/Winter 2018, CHANEL is revisualizing matte in a whole new way via the Apotheosis Le Mat de CHANEL Collection. Autumn’s earthy hues are reinvented and given a modern vibe — and while matte reigns supreme here, the finishes have been softened and almost blurred, providing a lushness to the textures that make them in turn utterly feminine, and yet so absolutely powerful. Provocative, done in true CHANEL style.
