The end of this month brought three beautiful launches that I am happy to share. From the rose gold tones of the Disney x House of Sillage Collection and Wayne Goss’ bronze and contour palette of dreams to a Kosas brow trio of epic proportions, these formulas and shades will have you feeling fresh and ready for April.
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of everything in action as well the Bottom Line….
Late March Launches: Disney x House of Sillage, Wayne Goss Bronzers and Kosas Brows
A gorgeous collision of luxury and nostalgia, blending stunning packaging with equally resplendent formulations that extend beyond the lip color we’ve come to adore from the brand.
The buttery smooth shadows in the Eyeshadow Quint (no microplastics, preservatives, silicones or talc!) possesses a rosy neutral color story that brightens and refines.
All five shades have a sophisticated satin finish that resists creasing and wears flawlessly and I am finding myself reaching for this palette constantly as fo late…the shades are so pretty and extremely easy to wear.
For the face, the Complexion Duo Blush & Highlighter is an absolute gem.
When I first saw the blush in the pan, I thought it may be super light, but upon first application, I was stunned by the pigmentation of this cool peachy pink dream. It’s rich and smooth with a soft satin glow that makes skin look flushed from within. The pinky gold highlighter is equally pretty and I love to focus application on the high points of my face for an ethereal effect. Get this…you won’t regret it!
In terms of lips, the Diamond Powder Lipstick in Playful Red and Playful Nude are devastatingly lovely.
I’ve worn the lush pinky nude beige Playful Nude for a week straight–it has fabulous color payoff and a lasting finish that keeps lips at their best for hours. Playful Red is a bold cherry that will look good on all skin tones.
Finally the Lip Gloss Luminizer in Something Sweet is a delightful surprise.
The mid-toned pinky rose glaze is nourishing and not sticky with a glass-like luminosity that–along with the wash of tender pink–intensifies in a couple of coats. It’s universally flattering and well worth the pursuit.
All in all, this color collection from House of Sillage is innovative yet classic and I am beyond excited to see what else the brand has in store in this category in the days to come!
Just launched today, the *Wayne Goss The Radiance Boosting Palettes feature a luminous bronze tone on one side and a creamy matte contour powder on the other. This duality enables one to create a custom sculpt for their face while adding warmth and radiance all over, so you never have to choose between contour and bronzer; this combination, ultimately, yields a very healthy and youthful looking effect.
The palettes come in three shades combinations to complement a spectrum of skin tones and I have found my match in Satin Bronze, worn in the images at the end of this post. Finely-milled and extremely bendable, the *Wayne Goss The Radiance Boosting Palettes are a brilliant bronzer alternative, effortlessly creating structure and and burnished glow that wears flawlessly for hours on end.
This week, Kosas launched a collection of brow products that work together to give you the fullest, featheriest and healthiest brows around!
Alcohol-free and enriched with castor oil and plant (rather than plastic) fibers, the *Kosas Air Brow Tinted Clean Volumizing Eyebrow Gel (also available at Kosas) comes in ten shades and deposits smudge proof pigment while adding feathery volume and hold for a full and natural brow result. The *Kosas Air Brow Clear (also available at Kosas) is the quickest and easiest way to get the “laminated brow” effect. The formula also contains plant fibers (rare, but immensely appreciated with a clear gel) so you get stalwart hold as well as feathery lift and fullness in a single pass. To help fill in sparse areas, the *Kosas Pop Clean Dual-Action Defining Eyebrow Pencil (also available at Kosas) features a diminutive triangle tip which draws long-lasting hairlike strokes with ease. In sum, this trio of brow products is a clean and effective trifecta for brow perfection.
I have oft-wished for a brow tint that would fortify my brows while making them look their best and it seems that Kosas has adeptly fulfilled this fantasy…I can’t wait to continue to use this trio and will, of course, weigh in with my long-term experiences with the formulations.
The following images reflect all products in action in afternoon sunlight…
// STYLE NOTES // As soon as the warmer months hit, I all but live in some version of a bikini top, sweatshirt and cutoffs. Here are three of my favorites:
- Hunza G Brigette Bikini in Metallic Cocoa: I have this two piece in both black and cocoa and wear the tops constantly as the off the shoulder cut is equal parts cute and so comfortable. This style tends to sell out quickly so I suggest snapping one up (one size fits most…truly) when you see a color that you like!
- Free People Bino Pullover: A perfect pullover for a breezy day, this sweatshirt–which comes in an array of shades–features oversized buttons and a shawl collar for a fresh and relaxed take on a typical crewneck. I am wearing a size medium.
- Agolde Dee Shorts: Forever my favorite denim. These high-waisted shorts get a lot of wear from me, year round. In fact, this is probably why I’ve purchased three identical pairs over the years. I am typically a size 6 and also wear a 28 in these shorts as they seem to run a touch small.

Good things ahead, including a skincare routine intensive, a fresh video tutorial and a host of new product procurements. Can’t wait to share!
Stay strong, seek wisdom, much love and more soon,
