I hope everyone had a great weekend! Right now I’m loving Diptyque Feu de Bois and Lumira Tahitian Coconut for the home. For lips I’ve been obsessed with Tom Ford In the Buff Sheer Lip Color – it is the perfect soft nude for me, most of the colors from the spring collection are sold out but you can still find this one at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman (Bergdorfs has a beauty GWP going on).
I attended a small Chanel event at my local Neiman Marcus a few weeks ago and the artist used Chanel Utopia Illusion d’Ombre all over the lids with a bit of Chanel Les Beiges No. 40 as a contour and a black liner. It was so simple but really pretty and polished. Since then I’ve been wearing Utopia almost every other day. I’ve also found myself wearing Chanel Les Beiges powders on the face on a daily basis. I use No. 20 for a soft setting powder and darker ones in No. 30 and 40 to add warmth and contour (swatches of all three from last year here). The summer Multi-Colour No. 02 is also a new favorite for bronzing. It’s listed as limited-edition on Chanel.com so I will definitely need to get a backup.
For a quick preview on what will be coming soon on The Beauty Look Book, I purchased some items from Chanel Fall. Shown above are the three Le Vernis Nail Colors in Secret, Atmosphere and Orage, Glossimer in Rose Reve. I’m also working on swatches of Burberry’s two new Sheer Eyeshadows in Storm Grey #27 and Graphite #28 (they’re listed as being on backorder on Nordstrom, but I ordered one and it shipped right away, another option is to call one of the Burberry counters, Nordstrom San Francisco has both).
Last preview is that Tatcha has launched several Travel Sized Mini skincare items for sale. They sent me the mini oil for review (feature soon) and I’ve already ordered three other items to take with me for an upcoming trip. They are perfect for travel or to try something out before committing to the full size.
For non-beauty loves, I’m loving nude pinks for accessories. Also bookmarking lots of items in J.Crew’s Style Guide for summer (have you checked out their blog?).
Stay tuned for the reviews soon!
