Dior · Midnight Wish Collection, Holiday 2018


Inspired by one’s “lucky star”, Dior’s Midnight Wish Holiday 2018 Collection (all limited edition) is a makeup lover’s delight. With holiday-themed shades to go with the intricately wrought designs — not to mention the most display-worthy packaging (seriously; just look at those nail polish bottles), everything shown would definitely be a hit gift … just make sure to grab a few items for yourself while you’re at it.



Ciaté · Glitter Storm Eyeshadow Palette


In time for the holiday season, Ciaté London has recently released the Glitter Storm Eyeshadow Palette, and I don’t know about you, but I’m a total sucker for anything with a snow globe effect. It doesn’t hurt that the nine hues of this palette are also sitting firmly in my wheelhouse, or that they wear so well either.



Urban Decay · Elements Eyeshadow Palette


Inspired by core elements Air, Earth, Fire and Water, Urban Decay recently released the Elements Eyeshadow Palette, a grouping of never-before-seen shades from the brand, housed in an oversized round compact case that was very likely influenced by the cosmos itself. Out of this world, indeed … and oh-so worthy of investing in.



CHANEL · Collection Libre 2018 Maximalisme de CHANEL


“I used my penchant for all that shines to try and reconcile elegance and fashion”

Gabrielle Chanel


For this year’s Collection Libre, Lucia Pica drew inspiration from one of Mlle Chanel’s beloved talismans, the lion — a symbol which represents strength, courage, and even, dare I say, flamboyance (that mane, am I right?). Spotlighting the way interesting new colours can be seen when light & shadow reflects off mettalics, this collection is both bold and elegant … and absolute perfection for the holidays. Be warned, however: everything is limited edition.



Givenchy · Midnight Skies Collection Fall 2018


Inspired by the iconic black dress designed by Hubert de Givenchy that Audrey Hepburn wore for the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the brand’s head of makeup, Nicolas Degennes, created Midnight Skies — a collection that draws on the mystery of a vast star-lit sky coupled with lush jewel-like tones. Or at least, that’s how I see it.
