Chantecaille is all about that effortless beauty, and this Fall the brand takes inspiration from the splendor of Kenya. The eyes are dressed in shimmering hues of sunset, and lips are draped in lush richness.

THREE Cosmetics seems to have taken an interesting turn in its makeup aesthetics, moving ever farther away from the generic girlie cuteness that most Japanese brands are prone to, setting the pace with graphic editorial looks. The latest feature look for the Wild Cosmic Child A/W 2018 collection looks futuristic and mod, with a distinctly British vibe, which is neither cosmic nor wild. Regardless, if you consider the ability to transcend different genres, and stride boldly in an ever-challenging urban society, then you have finally found the mark.

I have not acquired any new Dior makeup in a long time, preferring to invest in their fashion accessories instead. But I couldn’t resist the latest Dior en Diable collection for Fall 2018, especially the 5 Couleurs Rouge en Diable eyeshadow palettes. There are 2, I resisted the urge to pick up both of them, and chose the more sophisticated Volcanic.

Hello friends! It has been surprisingly nice here in Cologne this time of the year, and I’ve been booked in a shoebox of a hotel room this round, so I’ve tried to spend most of my time outside. I had initially thought I’d have so much time to myself that I can catch up on blog posts, but instead I’ve just been crashing the moment I get back. Today I took off to Dusseldorf for a spot of shopping, you can take a peek on my Instagram stories.
Before I turn in for the night again, I would like to show you my latest purchase from SUQQU AW2018’s collection. The brand used to send me their collections, but somehow I seemed to have been dropped from their recent PR musical chairs. It’s sad because I love SUQQU and have always done my best to get thorough reviews out before the official launches, no matter how late the press drops show up. But in a way it has been sort of liberating and I no longer feel any pressure to get the features out. The latest season looked so pretty though, and in a pleasant turn of events, I was actually able to get hold of it on Selfridges!

Fall is one of my favourite seasons, and this round Chanel is bringing fashion runway sensibilities to life. Apotheosis Le Mat de Chanel plays with textures to create visual intensity, creating mesmerising gazes to bold unapologetic lips and edgy tips. There is plenty to explore, with a variety of options to achieve Lucia Pica’s tailored femme fatale look.

Make Up Store produces makeup that looks good for the every day woman, and does not play by conventional seasonal trends. The latest collection features 3 different looks, including of course a bronzed, sun-kissed siren. For the romantic, there are beautiful pieces to create a flirty and airy look. There are also a couple of edgier items for those who wish to exercise their creative freedom.
