A day trip to Arachova, a beautiful mountain town in central Greece.

Hello again! Have time for another post today- also, I’m in a mood for writing! Rougenapples is primarily a beauty blog, but how about a travel post here and there or a recipe of a Greek dish? Wouldn’t it be fun? 🙂 Let me take you to one of my most favourite places in Greece for the next five minutes: Arachova.

Marc Jacobs Eyeshadow Palette About Last Night Style Eye-Con No.20, review and swatches

Happy Spring everyone! We’re now officially in spring and it feels *SO* good. This was the longest winter ever, so I can’t wait to absorb as much sun as I can the coming months. To start spring with one of the most beautiful and versatile eyeshadow palettes I have, let’s speak about the Marc Jacobs Eyeshadow Palette About Last Night Style Eye-Con No.20! This is a beautiful eyeshadow palette, not only in terms of appearance and exquisite packaging but also in terms of quality!

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Velvet Lip Glide- review, swatches and comparison!

It’s lipstick week for me this week! I’m determined to organise my lipsticks in terms of colour and formulation (matte, satin, nourishing etc). This is quite a task as I have accumulated a rather large collection through the years, although some of my older lipsticks I mostly collect, rather than wear. Was having a look at my Nars lipsticks yesterday and posted an Instagram photo which lots of you liked. So, I thought I’d give you my thoughts on a couple of more recent launches by the brand: first, the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and second, a personal favourite, the Nars Velvet Lip Glide.

The Marc Jacobs O!Mega Lash Volumising Mascara brings the colours of spring to our lashes!

It’s the weekend! Hello happiness! Bring on some well-deserved relaxation and hopefully… some warm sun? Hope London rain and wind hear my request and obey, because I need as much warmth and light as possible just now! Not only because I’m a typical, hopeless Mediterranean but because I want to showcase my colourful lashes this weekend all day long as well! Now, how vain does this sound? Very? Well, a bit of vanity (or shall I call it excitement?) doesn’t harm this time round, as I’m SO into the new, coloured, limited edition Marc Jacobs O!Mega Lash Volumising Mascara that I could literally wear it every day!

Foundation Series: A review of the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

Hello everyone! We are heading towards the end of the week and we’re more than half way through March! Unbelievable how time flies, but when we are heading towards the summer, I don’t really mind, personally. On another note, it’s foundation review day today! I’ve been meaning to review the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick for some time now, seeing as I purchased this product as soon as it launched towards the end of 2016. Better late than never though! I hope it’s still useful for those that are researching stick foundations or love Hourglass products!
