“When I close my eyes and think of Naples, these are the colors I see…” -Lucia Pica CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and color designer.

Chanel’s NEAPOLIS: NEW CITY Spring/Summer 2018 Collection is very fun, sophisticated and beautiful! I love all the colours and textures. I really love each piece in this collection and feel that one piece compliments the other and works really well together. No matter how you mix and match each piece, the makeup works harmoniously like a beautiful melody. The collection is called Neapolis – New City.

“For Spring/ Summer 2018, Lucia Pica heeds the siren’s call of home to return to the city of her birth anew. Here, Naples’ ever-changing landscape, layered with history, meaning and metaphor, provides the inspiration for colors, moods and techniques that offer a warm, rich and unexpectedly Mediterranean approach for the house at once antique and utterly contemporary.” -CHANEL


I would like to share a few pieces from the NEAPOLIS COLLECTION, the beautiful pieces are as follows:

Joues Contraste



This blush is so perfect for the spring and summer. I absolutely love a pop of colour on the cheeks. It’s the perfect pink that gives the complexion a beautiful healthy look.


Les 9 Ombres Edition N1 AFFRESCO (Limited Edition)


I have a feeling this palette will sell out in minutes!

This palette is breathtaking and is one of my favourite pieces of the Neapolis collection.

“My hope is that women will be open and spontaneous with the colors…they are buildable, so you can wear a subtle wash of color or create a more intense effect.” LUCIA PICA

Lucia pica says “All the elements of Naples are in here”, This palette is a play on texture as well as colour. There are three matte, satin and high-shine shades. All really soft and blendable. The colours range from brighter to more muted tones, reflecting Naples and its myriad influences. Peachy beige is tempered by a subtle mink brown. A bright gold sings out beside a dark rusty-red brown.





I really love this grey eyeliner. It’s waterproof and really compliments all the pieces in this collection.  It works so well with all the eyeshadows. It gives the eyes the attention they need but doesn’t take away from all other aspects of this collection. The pencil goes on smoothly and doesn’t tug on the delicate skin. It’s a wonderful waterproof eyeliner that lasts really long.



*65 L’ARISTOCRATICA (Limited Edition)


The Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick feels so beautiful and comfortable on the lips. This colour is perfect for the Spring and Summer. I absolutely love the fact that it’s not too pink, not too nude and not too peach. It’s just the right colour. I feel this colour will look amazing on all skin tones just like the entire collection.





I adore all Rouge Allure INK Lipsticks. This one in particular is bright and breathtaking! A showstopper! I love how vibrant and bold this colour is. Hot! Hot! Hot!




If you want a lovely pout and shine, Rouge Coco Gloss in 786 Sibylla will give you just that! I love this formula and colour. It’s the perfect pink and the formula is not sticky or gloopy. It is just right!


POUDRE A LEVRES (Limited Edition)



The Poudre a Levres makes me oh so happy! I adore getting the “just kissed” look. It’s the loveliest colour and so perfect in every way. I love using my finger to dip into the very moisturizing and hydrating lip balm and then with another finger into the powder. So satisfying! You can add as much or as little as you like. It’s so much fun and feels amazing on the lips. Not drying at all and the colour is wow!






I really love Le Vernis by CHANEL. They are my favourite nail polishes ever. They last very long and the colours are beautiful! This collection has four new colours and the two that I have are Nuvola Rosa and Verde Pastello. They remind me of desserts like macarons which are my favourite by the way. These two colours are so perfect for spring and summer and I love how fun they are. I’m so happy to see bright and fun colours!


Each piece in this collection works together perfectly and I adore how fresh and happy the colours are. They are very fun and vibrant! Thank you so much to CHANEL for the beautiful samples. I’m truly grateful.

Here is a makeup look that I created with this collection.

Annabelle Cosmetics Fall 2016


I’m very excited to bring you the new and amazing makeup by Annabelle Cosmetics!

I really love Annabelle Cosmetics and I adore the new Fall Lineup. They have come out with brilliant new products and the formula and colours are AMAZING! The colours are perfect for any season and they are so pretty. I’m so excited to bring you swatches!

Oh yes! Let’s get this party started!

Here are the new TWISTUP METALLIC Retractable Lipstick Crayons!

Can you say B E A U T I F U L !


Annabelle Cosmetics has come out with six new beautiful TWISTUP METALLIC Lipsticks, 6 new gel lip liners and of course 7 New Mascaras!

Oh YES!  Mascaras and liners and lipsticks Oh my!


I have swatches for you today and I’m so excited to tell you that the formula of the lipsticks and liners are terrific! I haven’t opened the mascaras yet because I need to go through them one at a time. I know that the BIG SHOW mascara is amazing because I already finished one and I’m so excited that there’s a waterproof one!  I can’t wait to try all these mascaras and slowly bring you a review for each one.








These are all available now! Go check them out. I saw them at Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart. You can also buy them online! Check out Annabelle Cosmetics website.


Even though these say METALLIC they are not chunky or glittery on the lips. The reflecting pigments are super fine. You can’t feel glitter on the lips. The formula is soft and silky. They are smooth and feel really lovely on the lips. They have a nice shine to them but not too much and I feel they are not too metallic. I feel these are very wearable and comfortable to wear. They have a beautiful light metallic look to them but just the right amount.

OMG did you know you can use these as eyeshadow also?

“Dare to go metallic with our new TwistUp Lipstick! We are adding 6 metallic finishes to our already popular collection. Thanks to its nourishing and natural ingredients such as Omega 3 + 6 and Shea butter, your lips will stay smooth and moisturized all day. The TwistUp Metallic lipstick is long-lasting.” -ANNABELLE COSMETICS

These are $9.95 check out the website because sometimes they have them marked down. 😉

Swatches on the Arm

Its creamy texture hydrates and smoothes your lips for a anti-drying effect.
The formula is enriched with beautiful light-reflecting pigments for intense colour and shine! Perfume-free. Paraben-free.-Annabelle Cosmetics

I absolutely love all the colours and I didn’t need to use lip liner because of the fine point on the lipstick. The applicator is really great and twists up when the product lowers. I absolutely adore these lipsticks and feel that they are beautiful and hydrating. I love the reflecting shine they give the lips and feel they are very wearable anytime of the year. The formula is very hydrating and light on the lips.

Which colour would you buy? What colour do you think suits me best? I Would love to know.

BIGSHOW Gel Lip Liners

These are the BigShow Gel Lip Liners. Don’t they look beautiful? I really adore them! They are soft and creamy and glide on smoothly. I love the variety of colours and feel that they can go with any lipstick and also can be worn on their own.


I adore all the colours and love how soft and creamy the formula is. They work perfectly with the Metallic lipsticks. What lip liner would you choose? Is there one that you like best? Do you wear lip liners? I would love to know.

So what are your thoughts about the new products by Annabelle Cosmetics? I would love to know! Have a beautiful week my friends!
