A sneak peek at our past week on Instagram, in all of its retro-filtered glory. For the full story in photos, follow us here, or on your phone at hautetalk !

Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Mascara – Sure, Yves Saint Laurent doesn’t need Cara Delevingne to sell us their newest mascara, but does it help? Uh, yeah. This stunningly packaged ‘scara lengthens and separates fringe and its rubber teeth coats every lash in “Fetish Black” goodness. If you like the sound of that, you can shop it here.

Amarte Skincare – We’re going to go out on a limb here and guess that you’ll be seeing a whole lot more of Korean skincare brand Amarte (meaning “to love you”) in the months to come. We first spotted their retinol-based EyeConic eye cream over on the divine Beauty Huile, and since then we’ve had the pleasure to test it, in addition to the Daily ExfoliPowder and the (seriously rockin’) BB cream. Stay tuned for the full scoop on this beautiful line, coming soon.

Acne Denim – When the lovely Tien of SayHelloMax dubbed Acne the “dream jean machine,” we knew we were in for good things. A visit to the Barneys Warehouse site later, we had a pair en route. Suffice to say? They could use a little hemming, but they are singularly, completely fabulous. Flattering, a beautiful wash, and generally the highest-quality pair of denim we own. Thanks, Tien!
