NARS · Wanted Eyeshadow Palette

 

When it comes to multi-shadow palettes, I honestly feel like few brands can touch NARS; from packaging, colour selection, all the way to quality … but then Wanted Eyeshadow Palette came along and just like that, I was blown away [again]. But there’s a catch: this treasure will be available for one day only, Cyber Monday (November 27th) — although it will make a reappearance later on ∗insert massive sigh of relief∗

CHANEL · Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour

 

Inspired by the power of numbers that were held most dear to Mademoiselle, CHANEL just launched Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour, part of the limited edition Collection Chiffrée. Displaying an intricately-wrought pattern which retraces all the iconic numbers from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, I almost couldn’t bear to mar its pristine surface with a brush … but I’m so, so glad I did.

Christian Louboutin Metalissime Rouge Louboutin Collection

 

There’s luxury beauty … and then there’s Christian Louboutin Beauté. With an ‘Ali Baba’s’ cave of beautiful objects at his disposal to draw inspiration from — as well as to gift his loved ones (so need to get my name on that list) — the designer recently launched Rouge Louboutin Metalissime, a limited edition capsule collection in time for the holidays. You better pray you’re not on the naughty list.

Clarisonic Mia Fit & Sonic Foundation Brush

 

There are days when I wrestle with what I want to talk about, and other times it just comes so easy; today’s post falls in the later category. Several weeks ago when this Clarisonic Mia Fit arrived, I immediately jumped all over the Foundation Brush attachment and couldn’t wait to try it and see what all the fuss was about. And because I’m a skincare fiend, I was chomping at the bit to take everything right off by using the included Cleansing Brush. So basically, I spent a few days going back & forth like that and while this was done in the name of proper testing, I confess to having had way too much fun in the process.

NUDESTIX · No-Makeup Makeup Box 2017

 

Canadian brand NUDESTIX is basically the adult version of Crayola makeup — and with the same level of fun, I might add. Founders Taylor & Ally Frankel (supported by Jenny, their brilliant mom & creator behind MAC’s Lipglass formula) are two young women who have a pretty good handle on what people want out of their makeup and have created this easy goal: how to simplify one’s beauty routine. Take this “no-makeup makeup box” I received a few weeks ago for example; no tools or assembly required, with the possible exception of mascara. Done & done.
