Amazingly, it has been more than a year since Lucia Pica took over creative helm for Chanel makeup. For her inaugural collection, she chose to shake up classical sensibilities with the bold Le Rouge Collection N°1; and this Christmas 2017 is going festive red with Collection Libre 2017!

We are coming into the home stretch now… and my favourite season of the year as holiday collections start rolling. The genies must have read my mind, I came home last week to find the new SUQQU Christmas 2017 Collection waiting for me! This is perhaps the most fun and extensive seasonal collection that I’ve seen from SUQQU yet, and exclusively designed by Jorge Balzaretti for the UK market. The collection will launch at Selfridges tomorrow (5 October), followed by Harrod’s and Fenwick’s Bond Street on 19 October. As always, things are bound to sell out before you can say SUQQU, so here are full swatches, a few makeup looks and my thoughts to help you make up your mind!

Much as I love bold, edgy makeup collections, it is often the softer, everyday colors that speak to and sell well with the average woman. And so, I appreciate very much Lucia Pica’s thoughtfulness in curating an alternate look within the Chanel Travel Diary Collection for Fall 2017. But beyond just keeping fans happy, Chanel has also launched a couple of exciting new makeup items this season, and I’ll be sharing my thoughts with you today!

After being all sweet and girlie for the past couple of seasons, RMK strikes a bold statement with its latest FFFuture Collection (“fast forward future”) for FW2017. This is a special collaboration with Japanese fashion designer Taro Horiuchi, who is known for his sleek architectural aesthetics. And befittingly, the entire collection feels cooler and edgier than ever before.

My first encounter with Zoeva was in the form of a concealer buffing brush, which has outshone every designer / luxury brand to become my daily companion. This is my first proper experience with Zoeva makeup, and if these The Basic Moment palettes are anything to judge by, I can foresee my collection growing rapidly!

It’s summer, and I’m feeling a little restless… I don’t have the mood nor patience to spend hours perfecting my makeup. Instead, I’m choosing pieces that are as easy to wear as possible, and Chanel‘s current Les Beiges collection for Summer 2017 hits all the right spots for me. I’ve already reviewed some of the pieces here and here, and today I’d like to show you a couple of color makeup for the eyes and cheeks.
