New beauty: BUXOM White Russian Collection






Building on the success of their cult-fave lip gloss shade, BUXOM has released the limited edition White Russian Collection. The brand’s classic pinky nude shade has now been reinterpreted for the entire face … so I guess you can call this a true beauty cocktail (and yes, that’s definitely a cheesy reference to the original Tia Maria + milk alcoholic drink).




New from NARS: The Claudette Collection



I am very lucky to have an extremely beautiful, glamorous, and elegant mother on whom I was always able to practice makeup” — François Nars.

In homage to his absolutely gorgeous mother — who also happens to serve as one of his muses, François Nars was inspired to create The Claudette Collection, Claudette Says. All I can say, is that if his mom is anything to go by, then the hype about Parisian women is most definitely real. I mean, just look at her!



New & Tested: Guerlain Kiss Kiss Tender Matte Lipstick


Maybe because of the year we had in 2020 and while the pandemic is still not over, I almost feel like wearing lipstick is a way of capturing the normalcy of before — you know what I mean? So I was quite happy to receive Guerlain’s new KissKiss Tender Matte shades to try, but I’m not going to lie: the gorgeous little box they arrived in had something to with that as well.




Fragrance love: Le Lion de CHANEL, Les Exclusifs



The latest addition to CHANEL’s Les Exclusifs range is Le Lion de CHANEL, and I am completely smitten with everything about this fragrance. From the minimalist packaging, name, sublime scent, and all the symbolism behind its creation (more on that later), this jewel has quickly moved up the ranks to grab the top spot in my fragrance library. 



New from Urban Decay: the Naked Wild West Eyeshadow Palette



Urban Decay has just added to the Naked lineup with the new Wild West Eyeshadow Palette that includes 12 new shades inspired by the California desert, Joshua trees, and endless skies. My verdict? Saddle up, because this is one purty palette (and that’s the extent of my cowboy speak, lol).
