New Dior · Summer Dune 2021 Collection

 

 

 

Dior has just launched the Summer Dune 2021 Collection, and I’m 100% here for it. I mean, c’mon; few brands do details as breathtakingly beautiful as Dior, am I right? The collection draws inspiration from the play of light on sand dunes (oh, how I’ve missed the beach …), and I have a few key pieces to show you. Spoiler alert: they’re all ahhhh-mazing.

New Beauty: Perle et Éclats de CHANEL Collection, Spring 2021

 

 

 

 

Inspired by Japanese Akoya pearls, CHANEL’s Perles et Éclats Collection draws on Coco Chanel’s love of these lustrous gems and their complex luminosity, with several pieces here absolutely delivering on that aesthetic. For example, feast your eyes on that exquisite highlighter … I rest my case.

New beauty: BUXOM White Russian Collection

 

 

 

 

 

Building on the success of their cult-fave lip gloss shade, BUXOM has released the limited edition White Russian Collection. The brand’s classic pinky nude shade has now been reinterpreted for the entire face … so I guess you can call this a true beauty cocktail (and yes, that’s definitely a cheesy reference to the original Tia Maria + milk alcoholic drink).

Pat McGrath · Star Wars™: Dark Galaxy Duo

I was 14 when the original Star Wars™ movie was released and I literally went and saw it in theatre 7 times (obviously this was before BluRay existed). To say that I am a sci-fi geek wouldn’t be a lie, so when I received an email notification that Pat McGrath was launching a collection to coincide with the release of Star Wars™: The Rise of Skywalker, I didn’t hesitate. Beauty + science fiction = PERFECTION, at least for me.

Urban Decay · Game of Thrones Collection

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.
