CHANEL · Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour

 

Inspired by the power of numbers that were held most dear to Mademoiselle, CHANEL just launched Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour, part of the limited edition Collection Chiffrée. Displaying an intricately-wrought pattern which retraces all the iconic numbers from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, I almost couldn’t bear to mar its pristine surface with a brush … but I’m so, so glad I did.

CHANEL · Les Indispensables de L’Été, Cruise 2017 Collection

 

CHANEL’s Les Indispensables de L’Été Cruise 2017 Collection draws inspiration from Mademoiselle and her love of sun-kissed hues, with special attention given to earth tones and pops of coral as counterpoint. Coco Chanel was a true visionary — ahead of her time both in fashion & beauty, and now Lucia Pica pays tribute to an icon with this latest release. After playing with these pieces for some time now, I’m happy to say that I’m truly loving every single item; big surprise, I know, coming from me the ultimate CHANEL fan, but you guys also know that I call ’em as I see ’em. So yeah, this collection is basically Summery perfection.

Oh, and on repeat right now is the short video below — I can’t take my eyes off the makeup AND the jewelry …

MAKE UP FOR EVER · New Ultra HD Face Products

 

The latest releases from MAKE UP FOR EVER’s continuously-growing range of HD products are all about prepping & finishing, but the best part is that you don’t need professional skills to accomplish the job. Adding to the list of their cult-fave Stick Foundation lineup, are 5 new shades that offer skin tone options to suit pretty much all complexions across the spectrum.

On a side note, the media kit I received was mind-numbingly gorgeous (the 2-tiered case, shown below) and along with all the new products, it also came filled with more foundations and concealers than you can shake a stick at (whatever that means). Blown away, I tell you. #gottalovetheseperks

Kat Von D · Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette, Lock-it Makeup Setting Mist & Petal Brightening Powder

 

I’ll put it out there: neutrals are my comfort zone, but I confess to an almost childlike glee when I received Kat Von D’s Pastel Goth Eyeshadow Palette. These happy colours also remind me of Easter and all things Spring, which is always a good thing in my book as it means warmer weather is not that far behind … that said, I guess that also means that this Makeup Setting Mist will probably be getting quite the work out too, no?
