NEW! Les Chaînes d’Or de CHANEL for Holiday 2020

It’s safe to say that CHANEL holds a special place in my heart (& vanity table) and the Holiday 2020 Chaînes d’Or Collection definitely does NOT disappoint. Setting the tone is the exquisite pattern, but ultimately it’s the performance of each piece that speaks to me. Very loudly, I might add.

New! CHANEL Fall-Winter 2020 Collection, Candeur et Expérience Act II

Back in 2016 and for her debut launch, Lucia Pica — Global Creative Makeup & Colour Director for CHANEL — created a collection around red, her favourite shade. For Fall/Winter 2020, she revisits this iconic hue with the Candeur et Expérience Acte II Collection … but with a pink twist that explores variations and tones, and still keeping it all within the brand’s recognizable signature. For the record, I’m LOVING every.single.piece.

MAC · La Leyenda Extra Dimension Skinfinish

Interesting fact: Selena Quintanilla-Perez’s posthumous original collaboration with MAC ranks as one of the top-selling collections in cosmetics history. I’ll let that sink in for a minute. Now, I confess to not knowing much about the late artist — other than the fact that she was not only incredibly talented, but tragically killed in the prime of her life — but I wasn’t going to pass on this stunning piece from her second collection with MAC, aptly titled Selena La Reina.
