Guerlain · Make it a Terracotta Summer

 

Maybe it’s because I’m born in July, but I’m a Summer girl through & through, and nothing captures the spirit of the season better than Guerlain’s Terracotta — especially this glorious fragrance. But the venerable house hasn’t stopped there, having released several other products under the Terracotta banner that are definitely worthy of the name.

YSL · Volupté Tint-in-Balm & Volupté Liquid Color Balm

 

Lip balms and glosses are what I’m all about, and the Volupté products I’m featuring here today not only meet that need, but do it in true YSL fabulous style. The best part?

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.
