111Skin Y Theorem Repair Serum NAC Y2 Space Anti Age collection review photos
111Skin is a powerhouse of a brand that is based in London at the Harley Street clinic of Dr. Y. Alexandrides which is frequented by a well-heeled clientele that insist on the most cutting edge in evidence-based dermatological breakthroughs to keep their skin at the peak of health and to best position it to gracefully weather the passage of time. I first discovered 111Skin through a sample from SpaceNK iconof the Y Theorem Repair Serum NAC Y2 iconand was immediately converted...and as it turns out, so were a lot of others...

I'll also be doing looks with all the items so you guys can see how they translate to the face, but those will probably go up on this page around the end of next week.

Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation | Swatches & Review

Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Swatches & Review
It's been awhile since I've done a foundation Friday, but I've got a very worthy pick for you all today! Chanel launched it's brand new Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation ($60 for 1 oz.) earlier this fall. It is said to give a fluid, seamless, second skin effect, with light diffusing complexes that give the skin luminosity and absorbent powders that give the skin a long-wearing, matte finish. To my own eye, the formula is clearly meant to replace Chanel's previous long-wearing, matte finish formula: Perfection Lumiere, which was discontinued awhile ago and which was previously one of my holy grail foundations.

As is turns out, they 100% are.

Buxom Shimmer Shock Lipstick Review Swatches Photos Lip Swatches Volatile Flasher Uncontrollable Fireball Dynamite Aftershock Va-Va-Voltage Thunderbolt
Buxom recently launched a new lip product - the Shimmer Shock Lipstick ($18 for 0.07 oz.). It comes in a twist up, pencil format that's become increasingly popular for its ease of application and cute, chubby profile, and it is supposed to be a lightweight gel lipstick that delivers multi-dimensional shimmer, alluring colour and slick shine. I ordered a bunch of shades from the line-up to swatch and review, and I have to say I am quite smitten!

Everlane Premium Wool Flannel Crop & Full Leg Pants

Everlane Premium Wool Flannel Crop & Full Leg Pants Review Photos
Premium Wool Flannel Crop Pant worn with Luxe Wool Ribbed Turtleneck in Black, XS and Heel Boot in Black
 Pants pants pants. Everlane just released a new collection of Premium Wool items, which included two new pants silhouettes, which I proceeded to promptly order. I plumped for size 00 in both. The Premium Wool Flannel Crop Pant ($125) has a straight, slightly tapered and cropped leg, while the Premium Wool Flannel Full Leg Pant ($135) is just the opposite - a wide, full, straight and untapered leg that interestingly is basically the same thing as a palazzo pant but in a cozy, soft, warm wool flannel that is perfect for fall. Scroll on for more photos and a full review of both!
