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. That said, when the Clarins Water Lip Stain shades came in the other day, I began testing them out pretty much immediately and so far, they’re definitely impressing me enough to make the cut.

CHANEL · Éclat et Transparence, Cruise 2018 Collection

 

The newest release from CHANEL, Éclat et Transparence Cruise 2018, draws inspiration from the gorgeous sheer effect produced by the interplay of shadow & light, and I have most of the collection to show you here today.

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.
