SS18 Beauty: Chanel, Jo Malone, REN

Here are some of the new products which caught my attention this week, and I have chosen makeup, skincare and fragrance.


Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Blush Hydrating Lip & Cheek Sheer Colour, $30 from Saks. Chanel is available from Nordstorm,  Neiman Marcus, Selfridges and  Harrods.

Lightweight 2-in-1 lip and cheek blush, you can create both sheer  or intense effect with a  matte finish.  This is a LE product and the shades are: 414 Tender Rose, 410 Corail Naturel, 412 Orange Explosif, 416 Teasing Pink, 418 Rouge Captivant, 410 Burning Berry

I am loving what Lucia Pica is doing with Chanel’s makeup, so many great new products.

Jo Malone launched a collection called English Fields, and the scents are:

Primrose & Rye Cologne: “Rolling fields dotted with primroses. Swaying softly on a spring breeze. Warmed by golden corn. Brightened with mimosa. On an addictive base of rye and vanilla. Filled with sunshine. Vivid. Glowing. Addictive.”

Poppy & Barley Cologne: “Rich red poppies dancing in the wind. Violet flowers, alive with colour. Fruity with blackcurrant. Cocooned by barley and bran. Softened with powdery notes of white musk. Lively. Cheerful. Inviting.”

Green Wheat & Meadowsweet Cologne: “An English field at dawn, full of the joys of spring. Filled with young, green wheat. Crisp and fresh. Balanced with a zesty twist of grapefruit. Mingled with soft, white notes of meadowsweet. Pretty. Fresh. Powdery.”

Oat & Cornflower Cologne: “Wholesome oats gathered from the field, fit for a hearty feast. Warm and delicious. Enlivened by vivid blue cornflowers and a hint of hazelnut. Complemented by an elegant vetiver base. Mouth-watering. Warm. Sensual.”

Honey & Crocus Cologne: “Mouth-watering honey, fresh from the beehive. Blended with the bright bloom of crocuses and English lavender. Sweetened with a dash of almond milk. Rich. Comforting. Scrumptious.”

I have to try them all!

  1. Would you happen to know if the Chanel lip & cheek formulation is safe for acne prone?

    I have dry skin but still prone to breakouts.
