CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Fall-Winter 2021/22 Haute Couture

 

It seemed only fitting that CHANEL’s recent Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Haute Couture show was held at the Palais Galleria, City of Paris Fashion Museum, especially considering that paintings from the Belle Époque (19th century) were the inspiration behind the collection, in particular works from two female artists — Berthe Morisot and Marie Laurencin. Interestingly, both makeup and hair had a strong edge, an effect that toned down the softness of the pieces and gave the looks an overall rock & roll vibe which I personally found so fresh and, well … cool.

Armani Beauty · Lip Power

 

As if timed with the world finally opening up, Armani Beauty recently launched Lip Power Longwear Vivid Color Lipstick — which is like saying “get your lips ready, because masks are coming off ” … or, that’s my creative interpretation. Styled in keeping with the Italian luxury brand’s sophisti-sexy look, these lippies pack a statement even before you take them out of the tube. I mean, just look at them.

CHANEL Les Beiges 2021 Summer Light

 

 

I have been a fan of the Les Beiges range since its launch back in 2013 (seriously: plug in “CHANEL Les Beiges” in my search bar to see what I mean) and that love affair continues with the recently released Summer Light 2021 Collection. Something about the entirely effortless vibe of the pieces — coupled with how beautifully everything performs — and I’m 100% here for it. ALL of it.

NARS · Euphoria Collection 2021

 

 

 

 

Is it just me, or does NARS seem to fly under everyone’s radar? Case in point is the Euphoria Collection released for spring 2021 … a collection, I might add, that I actually hadn’t heard much about it landed at my doorstep a few days ago. Personally, I absolutely adore everything about this brand — from the beautifully crafted packaging, the quality of the products, and the names (hello, Orgasm anyone?). And since I also love a good beauty surprise, this collection has totally checked every.single.box.

Guerlain · KissKiss Shine Bloom

 

Guerlain recently launched KissKiss Shine Bloom — an innovative formula that’s probably one of the most luxurious balm/lipstick hybrids I’ve ever tried, and considering the beating my lips have taken with all this mask-wearing, I’m so ready for some major TLC … and looking quite chic while doing so. Oh, and did I mention that the formula consists of 95% naturally derived ingredients? Not too shabby, am I right?
