CHANEL· Premières Fleurs Dernières Neiges Collection

 

If you’re following me on Instagram (and if not, come join me @ommorphia 🤗), then you most likely saw my Insta Story the other day on CHANEL’s latest Dernières Neiges Collection that I previewed — and in particular this Première Fleurs compact (CAN $80.00 limited edition) that generated such a frenzy.

Burberry · The Essentials Collection

 

Burberry has recently launched The Essentials Collection, adding to the core group of products built around the ‘prime, contour & highlight’ philosophy of the brand.
