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

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

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.


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.


Dior · Lip Glow To The Max & New Lip Maximizer Collection

For Spring 2019, Dior is adding to both the Lip Glow and Lip Maximizer ranges with new shades, textures, and even formulation tweaks — then takes everything a few notches further by making these new additions just so much fun and pretty to look at too. So basically, you now have even more reason to want to whip one of these out in public … not that you needed the push, am I right?


Clarins · Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

Clarins has been infusing their products with the benefits of botanicals for over 60 years now, so it should come as no surprise that they would create a lip product that helps lips feel as good as they look. Lengthy name aside, the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is a hybrid gloss-balm-treatment, and ever since the launch of the original 2 shades a while back, more have joined the lineup, because well … options.
