Dior · Diorshow Pump N Volume Mascara & new 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes

 

The latest from Dior will definitely make your heart skip a few beats — but in the best way possible. Inspired by the fabrics seen at the recent runway collection, Dior has reinvented their 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes in 12 new colour harmonies while the iconic Diorshow Mascara has gotten a reboot as well, improving upon the formula and adding some high-tech wizardry into the mix.

Some products are just so breathtakingly beautiful that it’s actually painful to even think of marring them with a brush, such as the Floral Edition Bonne Mine Powder from Givenchy’s Gypsophila Collection, limited edition for 2017.

After playing with these pieces for some time now, I’m happy to say that I’m truly loving every single item; big surprise, I know, coming from me the ultimate CHANEL fan, but you guys also know that I call ’em as I see ’em. So yeah, this collection is basically Summery perfection.

The Loop Duty Free · Hockey Fever in the city … and more!

 

Hockey borders on religion in Canada, and that’s clearly evident here in Montréal now that playoff season is upon us and our beloved Habs (aka: the Montréal Canadiens, hockey’s oldest team #habsfanforlife) are in. Even the airport has gotten into the spirit by switching up the usual sign to display the Bleu-Blanc-RougeGO HABS GO!
