Clarins · Water Lip Stain

 

As I prepare for my upcoming vacation, I’ve begun rounding up what makeup I think I’ll need (which is usually way too much, as usual) but this year I’ve decided to impose certain criteria — if only to make it easier on myself … but more on that later.

NARS x Erdem · Strange Flowers Collection, Part 1

 

Today’s post is something that figuratively and literally, took my breath away when it arrived: the NARS x Erdem Strange Flowers Summer 2018 Collection. The brand collaborated once again with celebrated fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu — who also happens to be Montréal-born (like me), to bring this 13-piece limited edition capsule collection to life. Filled with unique new shades & products, the packaging is adorned with one of three original floral prints specifically created by Erdem, and after you see it all, I’m sure that like me, you won’t know whether to wear or frame everything.

Summertime collections definitely rank as some of my absolute faves, and as far as I’m concerned, Dior has totally knocked it out of the park with the Cool Wave Summer 2018 Collection. In fact, I’ll even go on record as saying that this brand is continuously upping their own game, releasing colours that bear a universal appeal and formulations that rock. So what are you waiting for? Just dive in … see what I did there? #noshame

CHANEL · Les Beiges de CHANEL 2018

 

In 2013 when CHANEL launched Les Beiges, to say that the concept turned out to be iconic wouldn’t be an overstatement, and since then the brand has continued to add something to the range every year. For 2018, Les Beiges has grown to include new items along with varying tonal intensities — because there really is more than one way to go nude, nest-ce pas?
