CHANEL · Travel Diary Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

 

For me, there’s few things that are able to take the sting out of Summer ending — one of them being the arrival of CHANEL’s Fall 2017 collection. Taking cues from a California road trip, CHANEL Global Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica created Travel Diary. Inspired by the play of lights & colours on the landscape from earliest dawn to nightfall, as well as the vista from the coastline all the way to gritty downtown LA, these hues capture those fleeting photographic moments … in makeup form, naturally.

Buxom · Plumpline Lip Liner & Shimmer Shock Lip Stick

 

Buxom has been around for some time now, although it’s a brand I’ve yet to explore — until now, that is, so naturally when these lippies came in I was excited to give them a shot.  Forgetting for a moment the torture I put my lips through when working on a lot of swatches, I can’t resist a chubby stick…they’re just so cute, dammit.

Stila · Matte ‘N Metal Eye Shadow Palette & Grayson Color Balm Lipstick

 

It occurs to me that today’s post deals with 2 of my sweet spots: neutral eye shadow shades and lip balm – nothing groundbreaking, am I right? And yet, both the Matte ‘N Metal Eyeshadow Palette and Grayson Color Balm Lipstick have managed to capture my attention. Maybe it’s because I haven’t explored this brand in detail [yet], so I’m curious. Secondly, the shades in the palette are totally up my alley and the lip balm is definitely unique colour-wise. Lastly, I can’t resist anything with a Batman reference (Dick Grayson aka: Robin, Batman’s sidekick — who then went on to become Nightwing. Because I’m a sci-fi/supehero/comics nerd like that).

Dior · Metallics Fall 2017 Collection

 

We may be in the heart of Summer, but that doesn’t mean that the beauty industry is in sync, which accounts for today’s post on Dior’s Metallics Collection for Fall 2017. Drawing inspiration from editorial beauty and the play of light makeup can produce, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for the brand, has created a collection for the season that’s filled with rich textures, opulent colours, and even a few innovations thrown in for good measure.
