Mugler · Angel Eau Croisière

For Summer 2019, Mugler’s Angel has been reinvented into an exotic tropical fragrance: think of Eau Croisière as Angel’s fresh, sunny, fruity and oh-so-flirty younger sister. Tweaking an iconic scent is always a tricky endeavour, but this time around all the stars must have been aligned because all it took was one spritz and I was hooked: a vay-cay in bottle form and just like that, it’s love.

CHANEL Backstage Beauty · Ready-To-Wear Autumn/Winter 2019

This past March 5th, the last collection created by the late Karl Lagerfeld for the House of CHANEL (Ready-To-Wear Autumn/Winter 2019) was held at the Grand Palais, with the venue transformed into a magical alpine scene and the theme of the show feeling quite fittingly like this legendary man’s Wintery swan-song. Devoted to all aspects of the glam chalet life, the creations drew their inspiration not only from the season, but heritage fabrics as well. Observing a minute of silence at the start, the rest of the show stayed true to Lagerfeld’s vision and left the entire audience speechless. The finale had emotions running high and tears were definitely flowing, but in the end it was a celebration — an homage to the creative genius of this one man who transformed the world of fashion, and whose touch will continue to be felt for generations to come.

MAKE UP FOR EVER · Artist Face Color

In the whirlwind pace of so many new — and frequently limited edition collections launching from all the brands, it’s nice to take a step back and give some love to something more permanent; case in point, the Artist face Colour blushes, highlighters, and sculpting powders from MAKE UP FOR EVER — a brand that definitely knows a thing or two about colour and more importantly, performance. After all, why not have it all?

Ciaté London · Wonderwand Lipstick

While I usually lean towards luxury beauty, Ciaté London has been steadily gaining ground on my affections, and I attribute this phenomenon to 2 factors: creative* products and consistency of performance. Their latest launch, Wonderwand Lipstick, brings all that to the table and includes nicely detailed packaging too — and all without breaking the bank. Well done, Ciaté.
