Victoria Beckham x Estée Lauder – Review & swatches of my picks from the collection

Hello everyone! Happy October! Ready for Autumn? I’m certainly ready, although when I was choosing the photos for this post I felt nostalgic about the beautiful summer days we spent on the Greek islands almost two weeks ago only! Funny how time passes so quickly, isn’t it? I’m one of these makeup geeks that will take some new products with on holiday and test them out. Do you ever do that? Seeing as I travel quite light, it’s unusual for me but I couldn’t really wait to try out the new Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Collection! Here go my thoughts on my picks.

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.
