Chanel Ombre Premiere Eyeshadows; Review, Swatches and FOTD

Hello there! As I write this post, I have the most beautiful view one could have wished for: seaside, a boat, and the lights of a couple of Aegean islands glimmering in the background of a relatively dark, wavy sea.

The Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil is pure moisturising bliss for lips!

Hey there guys! Hope this week is treating you all kindly. I recently posted a photo of the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil on my Instagram and was asked some very interesting questions, hence I thought I’d make a blog post explaining more about my experience using three of the seven shades available. If I were to keep it short, I’d simply say that these are gift sent for my dry lips!
