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.

In the latest edition of CHANEL’s 24-hue Le Vernis range, the brand has tweaked both the formula and the brush, along with launching 17 new shades.

Oh, and the colours are absolutely FAB.

Dior’s Summer 2023 Collection draws inspiration from the sun-drenched French Riviera, with jewel-toned hues and easy to wear shades that just screams summer. Well, maybe not scream, but definitely whisper dreamily … it is the French Riviera, after all.

CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Fall-Winter 2023/24 Ready-to-Wear Show

 

 

Mademoiselle’s beloved camellia flower was featured all over CHANEL’s recent Fall-Winter 2023/24 Ready-to-Wear Show, but I naturally zeroed in on the beauty look created. Personally, I’m all about makeup I can recreate at home and if it’s with products I already own, then that’s even sweeter.
