Urban Decay · Naked Reloaded

I clearly remember the day I got my hands on Urban Decay’s original Naked palette: I was vacationing in Florida where I picked it up from Sephora on the day it launched (I also used my elbows to to great advantage, fighting the crowds). This simple yet totally novel concept of an eyeshadow palette filled with neutrals went on to spawn an entire Naked empire (all of which I apparently own) and even though I don’t reach for that palette as often anymore, I was still sad to learn it was being discontinued. I should have known that Urban Decay wouldn’t let a good thing die out: think of Naked Reloaded as a fresh, new & modern reboot of the original … and I must admit, an excellent successor to the legacy.

CHANEL · Quintessence & Platine Bronze, Vision d’Asie Spring Summer 2019 Collection

Several weeks ago I showed you CHANEL’s Spring/Summer 2019 launches — that is, all but the two pieces starring in today’s post. This 9-shadow palette is only the second in this format that the brand has ever created, and this beauty holds an interesting & unexpected mix of hues, while the accompanying cream shade has quickly risen through the ranks to be the one I currently reach for … over & over again.

Fenty Beauty · Chill Owt Collection, Holiday 2018

 

It should come as no surprise to anyone, that Rihanna, founder of Fenty Beauty, would come out with a shimmery unconventional colour scheme for the holidays, and the Chill Owt Collection is without a doubt, majorly EXTRA. As someone who tends to stick with a more traditional makeup theme for this time of year, I feel excited to step out of my comfort zone and jazz things up … I may even take my look up a few notches for Christmas (and probably freak out my entire family while I’m at it).

Guerlain · Holiday 2018 Collection

 

 

Guerlain’s annual holiday offering is one that is highly anticipated each year, and this year’s iteration is not only gorgeous to look at & perfectly wearable, but also honours a beauty milestone as the brand celebrates its 190th Birthday. With a collection comprising of just a few pieces, they all nevertheless manage to pack quite an impact … done in true Guerlain elegant style, of course.

Dior · Midnight Wish Collection, Holiday 2018

 

Inspired by one’s “lucky star”, Dior’s Midnight Wish Holiday 2018 Collection (all limited edition) is a makeup lover’s delight. With holiday-themed shades to go with the intricately wrought designs — not to mention the most display-worthy packaging (seriously; just look at those nail polish bottles), everything shown would definitely be a hit gift … just make sure to grab a few items for yourself while you’re at it.
