Nars Fall 2017 Steel the Show Collection: Review, swatches and FOTD!

Hello there beautiful *waves from Greece*! Hope the first week of September has been amazing for you. As we’re now solidly approaching autumn, I thought I’d stick to reviewing those fall collections which tempted me. Nars is one of these brands which always surprises me pleasantly with their limited edition collections, as it’s real evidence that quantity isn’t everything. The Nars Fall 2017 collection, in particular, consists of only six items, all of them top quality though. Let’s have a look at the swatches and my picks.

Chanel 2017 Fall-Winter Make-up Collection: Ombre Premiere in Memory and Urban

Hi there beautiful! Happy September to you! But let’s not start celebrating autumn yet? For me September doesn’t exactly mark the beginning of autumn, but the gradual fading of summer. I think it’s my Greekness coming out here, although I must admit, London has been generously warm these days! I’m going on holiday in six days and the count down has started! In the meantime, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the Chanel 2017 Fall-Winter Travel Diary Collection! I’ve cherry picked some items and tried them out extensively before writing this post, mainly because the reaction to this collection has been mixed.

Another Hollywood beauty secret revealed to us by celebrity make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury! And this is also her answer to the liquid lipstick trend that’s all over at the moment. If you read this blog, you will know my lips are quite dry, so I’ve recently decided to go back to more creamy formulations and stop buying matte lipsticks, because much as I like them they inevitably feel less comfortable. However, when they Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips were launched, I had to make an exception! And I haven’t regretted it.

Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer: Better than sleep?

Forgive me, Bobbi Brown, but I can’t buy into that marketing slogan! I just wouldn’t exchange my soft bed, fluffy covers and eight hour sleep for any make-up product. But I love your concealer, so we can still be friends. The new Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer is indeed fantastic! I tested this product extensively before writing this post, so that I’d be as sure as I can ever be about a concealer. Well, it grew on me more and more, day after day.

Mini haul: Zara Skirt with Sash Belt and White, Open Neck Shirt

Why, oh, why do I have to spot all mouth watering clothing items when my salary hasn’t come in yet? Is it the universe telling me something? Is it some sort of divine conspiracy? 😂 And then, as it happens, I get worried that my local store will run out of my size or even sell out!! How strong can a woman be? Sometimes very, but some others less so, especially when it comes to something reasonably priced. And that’s exactly what happened with that Zara skirt and open neck shirt!
