CHANEL · Éclat et Transparence, Cruise 2018 Collection

 

The newest release from CHANEL, Éclat et Transparence Cruise 2018, draws inspiration from the gorgeous sheer effect produced by the interplay of shadow & light, and I have most of the collection to show you here today. The textures and colours of Summer — warm air, rippling water, and hazy filtered light, are all so beautifully represented and form the key to understanding these pieces: it’s about the application, and more importantly, layering. Plus, everything is just so gorgeous …

NARS x Erdem · Strange Flowers Collection, Part 1

 

Today’s post is something that figuratively and literally, took my breath away when it arrived: the NARS x Erdem Strange Flowers Summer 2018 Collection. The brand collaborated once again with celebrated fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu — who also happens to be Montréal-born (like me), to bring this 13-piece limited edition capsule collection to life. Filled with unique new shades & products, the packaging is adorned with one of three original floral prints specifically created by Erdem, and after you see it all, I’m sure that like me, you won’t know whether to wear or frame everything.

Urban Decay · Beached Eyeshadow Palette

 

I may love the rich colours of Fall/Winter beauty, but my heart belongs to Summer collections — even more so when they happen to be surf-themed.

Actually, it’s closer to the truth to say I immediately went online and started planning my next vay-cay (I’ll even take a virtual beach at this point …)

Dior · Cool Wave Summer 2018, Eyes

 

There’s just something about Summer makeup that I can’t resist; maybe it’s because I’m a July baby — but in the case of Dior’s Cool Wave Summer 2018 Collection, I’m going to say it’s mainly because of the collection itself. I mean, Just look at these palettes for God’s sake ∗swoon∗ Inspired by the contrasts between aquatic hues and sizzling sunny days, Peter Philips (Creative & Image Director for Dior Makeup), has basically brought Summer to life with these pieces. Oh, yeah …

CHANEL · Les Beiges de CHANEL 2018

 

In 2013 when CHANEL launched Les Beiges, to say that the concept turned out to be iconic wouldn’t be an overstatement, and since then the brand has continued to add something to the range every year. For 2018, Les Beiges has grown to include new items along with varying tonal intensities — because there really is more than one way to go nude, nest-ce pas?
