Chanel Entrelacs Palette
(Autumn 2015)

The Chanel Entrelacs palette ($80USD) topped my list of most highly anticipated products for Autumn 2015. My Saks store had the entire collection available early July, and upon first swatch, I knew the palette would be coming home with me. For once, it wasn't the pretty embossing that got me but rather the unbelievably smooth and buttery textures of the shadows themselves. I have always said that the formula of Chanel quints differ greatly from the quads, and this proved me right once again.

Nude Skincare Progenius Omega Treatment Rescue Oil

Face oils are, undoubtedly, one skincare category I struggle with. Finding the right balance of a light-weight formula for my oily skin and one that absorbs quickly has not been easy with a majority of the oils I've previously tried. Most times, I get frustrated by how they perform and they end up in the neglected pile of skincare after a couple of uses. I can only name a couple of face oils I use consistently.

Recent YSL acquisitions

Yves Saint Laurent. YSL. Three simple letters that just scream luxury both in the fashion front and in the beauty department. Personally, YSL hasn't released too many products in the last couple of years that have impressed me. However, give me sleek and posh packaging and promises of looking like a walking filter, and that can easily be changed.
