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.

Dior · Backstage Collection

 

Inspired by the prep work required when working on runway shows, Dior just released the Backstage Collection, a grouping of palettes for eyes, lips, face, and brows that not only have universal appeal, but aim to simplify your makeup routine (they actually do). In addition, the brand also created Backstage Face & Body Foundation — in 40 shades, no less, with a range of undertones that will definitely help you find your perfect match.

Urban Decay · Born To Run Collection

 

Every time I think or look at Urban Decay’s Born To Run Collection, Bruce Springsteen’s song of the same name starts playing in an endless loop in my head (#earworm) and while I’m not a fan of the song, I’m definitely head over heels for the makeup.

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.
