Dior · Oud Ispahan & Summer 2019 Lacquer Sticks

I was recently invited to visit Dior’s spectacular new counter at Holt Renfrew Ogilvy (Montréal), where with the help of their fragrance specialist David, I was matched with my perfect scent, Oud Ispahan. When that was done, I then had the opportunity to test out a customized Dior Prestige facial treatment — which was ah-mazing, by the way. Rounding out today’s post are the new Summer 2019 Lacquer Sticks, because why not?

CHANEL · Les Beiges 2019 Collection

Les Beiges from CHANEL is probably the collection I anticipate the most, and this year’s grouping is majorly exceeding ALL my expectations.

CHANEL Vision d’Asie: Lumière et Contraste Cruise 2019 Collection

“A woman is only as good as the light & peace she radiates” (Coco Chanel)

CHANEL · Rouge Coco Flash

CHANEL recently launched Rouge Coco Flash replacing the original Rouge Coco Shine range … and I’m so down for these lippies. With the iconic double C’s standing out thanks to new transparent caps and with a texture that has a lock on shine + comfort, I do believe I may have found my Summer faves … that will take me well into the other seasons too, I might add.

Givenchy · Le Rose Perfecto & Live Irresistible Rosy Crush

Living in a climate with such extremes (ridiculously hot & humid in Summer, bone-cold in Winter), my lips are always in need of hydration and there are usually anywhere from 2-4 lip balms in my makeup bag at any given time. There are times when I also want a spot of colour thrown in along with the hydration factor, and to that end Givenchy’s Le Rose Perfecto not only meets that need, but does it with some of the most bougie packaging out there. For 2019, the brand has just added to the range with several new shades … all utterly wearable and incredibly comfortable to boot.
