Givenchy · Le Rouge Sheer Velvet & L’Interdit EDP Rouge

 

Givenchy has just launched two new products for 2021, Le Rouge Sheer Velvet lipsticks and L’Interdit Eau de Parfum Rouge, the newest addition to the growing L’Interdit fragrance family. The brand was kind enough to send both along for me to try, and I won’t get into detail here, but I’ll leave it at … wow.

CHANEL Fall-Winter 2021 · Tone On Tone Collection

 

I know it’s still summer, but beauty marches to its own calendar … case in point: today’s post on CHANEL’s Fall-Winter 2021 Tone On Tone Collection. With a focused colour palette, this collection is about a hushed kind of harmony, and while winter might be in its name, to me this grouping seems like it’s encapsulating fall’s full splendour — which is what I’ll be going with, as I’m nowhere near ready to even think of cold weather.

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.
