Guerlain · My Top 5

 

Back by popular request, today’s post features Guerlain, one of my absolute favourite brands, but I confess that trying to focus on just 5 products was definitely challenging. That said, I decided to go for the pieces that have either completely stolen my heart and/or are the ones I’ve turned to the most … but let’s just say that there’s still so much more I love.

My Fave Summer Glow Makeup Products

 

It’s now September, but I’m still keeping that summer glow alive with the help of these fave ‘enhancers’ and when combined with a bit of bronzer, the result is just fab. No need for self-tanner either (although that’s also a really great option) and the best part? It’s super easy and can be customized for every skin tone and using products you may already have.

LORAC · Mega Beam Highlighters & Holy Mascara

 

 

I first heard of LORAC about 25 years ago and while I was on a weekend trip to NYC, I purchased a couple of products  … which then almost landed me in major trouble at customs upon my return home. The short version is that the customs agent was a real a$$ and wanted to nail me on the 2 items claiming they were “super expensive” (they weren’t), but the hassle was so, so real. That said, at least I got a good story out of it! So when this totally unexpected package came in the other day, it brought all those memories back — but with a stress-free ending this time around.

Buxom · Vibe Island Collection

 

Buxom Cosmetics has recently released the tropical-themed Vibe Island Collection, and whether you’re planning a getaway or not, this grouping will definitely give you all the vay-cay feels. Apart from the kitschy-cute packaging & names that are sure to make you smile, it’s the performance of everything here that has won me over. Now I need to actually book a trip somewhere, and I’m set.

CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Fall-Winter 2021/22 Haute Couture

 

It seemed only fitting that CHANEL’s recent Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Haute Couture show was held at the Palais Galleria, City of Paris Fashion Museum, especially considering that paintings from the Belle Époque (19th century) were the inspiration behind the collection, in particular works from two female artists — Berthe Morisot and Marie Laurencin. Interestingly, both makeup and hair had a strong edge, an effect that toned down the softness of the pieces and gave the looks an overall rock & roll vibe which I personally found so fresh and, well … cool.
