YSL · Libre Eau de Parfum & Volupté Plump-In-Colour

YSL recently launched Libre, a unisex fragrance built around lavender — a plant known for its calming properties, but there’s nothing sleepy about this scent; it’s rather more “sensual romp through the lavender fields” than aromatherapeutic.

In her second homage that’s inspired by the interplay of light captured throughout her photographic journey of East Asia, CHANEL’s makeup director Lucia Pica has created a collection that can be summed up in two words: easy glamour. With Summer just around the corner, these are exactly the types of products I’m all about — fuss-free yet still put together, and in my opinion, no one does that better than CHANEL.
