SS19 Blush Palettes: Chanel, NARS, Jouer and Benefit

We already had a preview of the upcoming makeup products such as lip lacquers, highlighter sticks, eye shadow palettes and human hair wigs.

So let’s take a look at cheek palettes, and there are quite a few, these are just the ones I’ve chosen.

Without a doubt, the most covetable palette of the SS19 season will be this lill gem from Chanel –  Voyage de Chanel (£52 from the website) which is  a blush/illuminating powders quad.

African American Wigs

  • Paris – A fresh and satiny pink blush that recreates the flush of brisk air of Paris along the banks of the Seine River.
  • London – A deep coral blush, inspired by the colourful façades of the Portobello Market in Notting Hill.
  • New York – A satiny powder that brings to mind the metallic golden finish of the Brooklyn Bridge.
  • Tokyo – A subtly rosy illuminating powder that recalls the poetic grace of cherry blossoms in Japan.

Besides Chanel, there are a few other gorgeous palettes to choose from:

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

Want It: Chanel Yeux Ombre Premiere Eye Shadow Collection

Long gone are the days when I was buying all those huge eye shadows palettes one, after another and blending 4-5 shadows together to create a look. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

This is why now I am mostly excited about the single or the duo releases. And just when I thought that I don’t want any eye shadows, Chanel are releasing these new beauties as a part of their Yeux  Ombre Premiere Eye Shadow Collection. Already available from Saks and Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom (here and here)

While I have selected the shades I will be trying out, there are many more other variants which also include yellow, blue and other more daring options.

And how cool are the looks Lucia Pica created on Kristen Stewart? Simple yet

Face Of The Day. November 4th 2013

Looks like Face Of the Day is now a more, or less regular feature. Maybe at some point, I will get brave enough to include photos of myself, too. Who knows?! But, as for now, here are the products that I’ve used and my opinion about them.

This look was all about my good ol’ blush love – Chanel Orchid Rose. I used to wear it every single day years ago, so I’ve decided to show it some love today.

Face Of The Day  chanel YSL Hourglass thebalm RBRFace

I’ve started with Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory to get a medium coverage and glowing effect, that way I didn’t even need a highlighter. It’s a great “foundation” for dull Autumn days. I’ve added some YSL’s Touche Eclat under the eyes, to brighten up the area and make me look less tired.

As, I’ve already mentioned, I’ve used Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose blush, which is a pretty warm-toned shade.  To add even more warmth to the face – I’ve used  YSL’s Terre Saharienne Bronzing Powder  in N° 5 Cinnamon Sand.

I wanted this look to be all about
