Guerlain · Nude Collection 2023

 

 

Drawing inspiration from the effortless spirit that characterizes the Parisian style, Guerlain has launched their first collection for eyes & lips –all based on the ever-popular nude theme. With luxe packaging that just begs to be publicly displayed, there’s certainly nothing boring about these pieces … and that’s just for starters.

OPI · Barbie Collection 2023

 

True story: when I heard that OPI was launching a Barbie Collection, I squealed. MAJORLY. For me, this theme hits home, because I grew up with Barbie; I still have my first doll given to me when I was 3, and I also have all of my daughter’s Barbie dolls (plus a billion accessories) in storage. Translating this icon’s appeal into nail polish was a match made in heaven, and I can honestly say that the shades truly do Barbie (& Ken) justice.

Dior · Rosy Glow Blush & Lip Glow Oil

 

Dior’s original Rosy Glow Blush was launched 10 years ago and came in only one hue: hot pink. Then in 2020 the brand reissued this cult-fave product and added another colour — but we all wanted more. Well, Dior listened and has come back with 6 shades for 2023. Pair these blushes with any of the matching Lip Glow Oils, add a slick of mascara, and there’s your summer look. Easy-peasy.

CHANEL · Codes Couleur

 

CHANEL recently launched the Codes Couleur Collection, a fun group of products that happen to be both useful AND great additions to one’s makeup bag. Created to match 9 of the new & revamped Le Vernis shades (reviewed here), this is a perfect example of how form & function come beautifully together. Plus, everything is just so darn cute!

CHANEL · Rouge Allure Velvet (2023)

 

Originally launched in 2011 as a bridge between a matte & luminous finish, Rouge Allure Velvet has been reinvented in 2023 with twenty shades encompassing the red spectrum. In fact, the colour red has great significance for the House, as this was the shade Gabrielle Chanel believed expressed the true power of a woman. Personally, nothing says “I’m owning it” quite as effectively as a red lipstick, wouldn’t you agree?
