CHANEL · Éclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder Spring/Summer 2020

Inspired by the soothing light (I’m guessing that would be at twilight) and powerful stillness of the desert, CHANEL has just launched their Spring/Summer 2020 Collection, with one of the star pieces being this Éclat Du Désert Illuminating Powder. This may be just me, but I find something so calming about the look of this highlighter — it’s like I can almost hear the wind whispering along the sand dunes. Too much? lol

Givenchy · Red Line Holiday 2019 Collection

Givenchy’s recently launched Red Line Holiday 2019 Collection is an absolute stunner and in my opinion, the most festively packaged out there.

Well, because not have I had amazing results from their past skincare ranges, but I couldn’t be happier to support a brand who has taken such strides to protect our world’s bee populations. For me, this is a total win-win.

YSL · Libre Eau de Parfum & Volupté Plump-In-Colour

YSL recently launched Libre, a unisex fragrance built around lavender — a plant known for its calming properties, but there’s nothing sleepy about this scent; it’s rather more “sensual romp through the lavender fields” than aromatherapeutic. For today’s post, I’ve decided to pair it with the new Volupté Plump-In-Balm lippies, because … why not?
