Swatch Sunday: Clinique Chubby Plump & Shine Liquid Lip Plumping Gloss and YSL Tint-in-Balm

Hello lovely people! It’s solidly end of May and I can already ‘breathe’ summer. Being back home in Greece helps, as we live near the sea and the combination of the warmth of the sun with the coastal breeze is nothing like any other season! During the summer months, unless I’m at work, I only wear a lip balm or some sort of a non-sticky gloss. I’m looking for what I’d call carefree, juicy-looking lips and don’t care about precise lines or longevity, so I’m always interested in launches that can offer that. Looking around, I discovered the Clinique Chubby Plump & Shine Liquid Lip Plumping Gloss (aka Clinique Chubby Plump & Shine Liquid Lip) and the YSL Volupte Tint-In-Balm, which I’ve swatched/ reviewed for you in this post.

Benefit They’re Real! Double the Lip and Duo Eyeshadow Blender

I’ve been wanting to write this review/swatches post since sometime now, but I wanted to try the new Benefit They’re Real! launches long enough to be able to form a solid view, as I haven’t tried many eyeshadow products from the brand before. Both the They’re Real! Double the Lip and They’re Real! Duo Eyeshadow Blender are such fun products, I’ve ended up using them for my day to day make-up looks quite a lot. Let’s have a closer look at both of them!

Hello from windy Greece! It’s a rainy day today in Athens, so the perfect day to stay in and write, as I’m not tempted to go out and enjoy the sunshine! It gets back to normal from tomorrow, thankfully! And, I’ve got a mascara review for you today! Let’s have a closer look at the Dior Diorshow Pump’n’Volume, Instant Oversize Volume Squeezable Mascara (and let’s shorten the name to Diorshow Pump’n’Volume Mascara for efficiency)!

Swatch Sunday: Chanel Summer 2017 Cruise Collection

Hello there! I hope you all had a great weekend and a happy Mother’s Day! I don’t get to spend Mother’s Day with my mum every year, since we are based in separate countries, so being home was a real treat this time. We bought some amazing flowers and also met with friends; it was all good fun! As I was celebrating this day in Greece, hubby kindly agreed to help me with a small Chanel haul, since the Cruise Collection has now officially launched in the U.K. Here go some swatches of most products in the Chanel Summer 2017 Cruise Collection and my initial thoughts on my picks!

Nars Charlotte Gainsbourg Review: Ready for that smokey eye!

It’s Fri-yay! I hope you’re all ready to enjoy a well-deserved weekend. Even if I’m still back home and on holiday, I can assure you the weekend is still invaluable since my family is off from work and we get to spend more time together. A weekend can never go unnoticed! I really wanted to fit in a review of my picks from the Nars Charlotte Gainsbourg collection before the weekend, so I hope it’s helpful for those that are thinking about grabbing something from this collection, or those who need some smokey eye inspiration! I’ve swatched the entire collection already, if you’re interested in swatches only/as well.
