Buxom Cosmetics has recently released the tropical-themed Vibe Island Collection, and whether you’re planning a getaway or not, this grouping will definitely give you all the vay-cay feels.

Something special about the new CHANEL Rouge Allure Laque

 

 

CHANEL recently launched Rouge Allure Laque and while it might seem counter-intuitive to wear lip products — other than, say, a balm — given the current mask-wearing times we’re all living in, it turns out that there’s actually something uplifting about wearing any of these shades. Then there’s this intriguing new formula …
