CHANEL · Les Beiges 2020 Summer of Glow

Without a doubt, CHANEL’s Les Beiges is the collection I wait for all year round and have done so since its inception. The fact that it seems to launch around my birthday just makes it sweeter (coincidence?!). Something about the sleek beige packaging coupled with the whole summery vibe just speaks to me, and the 2020 iteration is no exception to that.

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.

Charlotte Tilbury · Pillow Talk Collection

From the day Charlotte Tilbury launched her eponymously named range, one product struck a chord with everyone who tried it, and that was the Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk — a “universally flattering” nude-pink hue that just works on all. Like magic. Recognizing this incredible appeal, it was only natural that an entire collection would be spawned around this shade … and I for one am so glad of that.
