Urban Decay · Sin Afterglow Palette & New Face Sprays

 

Inspired by Sin, one of their best-selling highlighter shades, Urban Decay has created the Sin Afterglow Palette. Comprised of 3 complimentary blush along with 2 new highlighter hues, this is literally taking the original sin … and going 1 (or in this case, 5) better. #shamelesscheesymetaphor

NARS x Erdem · Strange Flowers Collection, Part 3

 

The final chapter of the NARS x Erdem Strange Flowers Collection, draws your attention to the six lipsticks. Once again, looks can be deceiving because with a couple of exceptions, what you see here is nowhere near what you’d expect. Then again, as this stems from the creative and often eccentric mind of François Nars, maybe it’s not that surprising after all.

NARS x Erdem · Strange Flowers Collection, Part 2

 

The second half of my NARS x Erdem Strange Flowers Collection review centres around the face. Having produced some of the beauty world’s most iconic blushes (Orgasm, Sin, Deep Throat), I was curious to see how the two shades here would stack up — I won’t spoil it, so I guess you’ll just have to read on to learn — but the piece I was most excited about was the highlighting pencil.

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.

Dior · Cool Wave Summer 2018, Lips & Nails

 

 

Summertime collections definitely rank as some of my absolute faves, and as far as I’m concerned, Dior has totally knocked it out of the park with the Cool Wave Summer 2018 Collection. In fact, I’ll even go on record as saying that this brand is continuously upping their own game, releasing colours that bear a universal appeal and formulations that rock. So what are you waiting for? Just dive in … see what I did there? #noshame
