CHANEL · Rêve de Chanel

 

The latest collection from CHANEL draws inspiration from the world of dreams & imagination — and probably sorbet ice cream too, in my opinion. With warmer weather around the corner, it seems so right to break out the pastels and you can bet that I’ll be rocking these all. That said, can first we have a moment of silent admiration for the perfection of this highlighter? Utterly swoon-worthy.

CHANEL Backstage Beauty · Fall-Winter 2022/23 Ready To Wear

 

Turning a Scottish classic into a luxury icon, CHANEL’s recent Fall-Winter 2022/23 Ready-to-Wear Collection paid tribute to all things tweed — even the venue was swathed in the fabric. Gorgeous accessories and runway pieces aside, the beauty look was minimal yet so fresh, with cheeks looking flushed with colour as though kissed by a walk through the moors. Groomed brows, a ‘just-bitten’ look to lips, and neutral nails, the eyes were loaded up with mascara (but not overly clumpy) to complete the look, and I’m living for the effortlessly cool effect. Pretty sure this will be my go-to from now on.

CHANEL La Comète Collection

 

 

Launched almost simultaneously with the La Pausa Spring-Summer 2022 Collection (reviewed here), CHANEL released La Comète — a collection inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s first and only high jewelry designs launched in 1932, ‘Bijoux de Diamants‘. Representing Mademoiselle’s lucky number, five timeless themes were chosen, with the crowning piece being the spectacular ‘La Comète‘ necklace. So while I may never be able to own the jewelry, I’m definitely happy to add the makeup versions to my collection.

CHANEL · La Pausa de CHANEL Spring-Summer 2022 Collection

 

In the 1920’s, Gabrielle Chanel chose idyllic Roquebrune-Cap-Martin on the Côte d’Azur to build her elegant villa, La Pausa — which also serves as inspiration for the Spring-Summer 2022 Collection. All the pieces are imbued with the earthy tones and sparkling light of the French Riviera, and in my honest opinion, this has to be one of CHANEL’s best releases to date … but fair warning: EVERYTHING is limited edition (*crying internally).

Laura Mercier · Light Catcher Loose Powder

 

Laura Mercier’s original setting powder has earned a well-deserved reputation as a must-have item in basically every makeup artist’s kit. Now this cult-fave product comes in a new “light-creating” finish and in 3 tones to suit a wider range of complexions. I personally am not one to set my makeup on the regular, but I’ll have to make an exception for something as pretty as this, no? Plus it’s the holiday season where a bit of sparkle is always a good thing!
