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.

The Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil for Summer 2017 is a star product!

Hey there! It’s only Tuesday and feels like Thursday over here guys! I started a new, full-time role and I have fairly long hours (typical in London though), so keeping up with the blog means lots more planning in advance. But that’s cool, it was high time I organised myself anyway 😂. Today, I wanted to send away all of the greyness, rain and wind outside with a product which I’m loving and genuinely think that deserves your attention: the Clarins Waterproof Eye Pencil for Summer 2017!

Keep smudging at bay with the new Bobbi Brown Long-wear Waterproof Liner! Review and swatches of my picks.

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great week! It’s a Friday today and I have a day off but managed to get another stupid cold, so I’m spending it in bed :(. Really annoying that, but at least I can write a post for you. I’ve been testing the newly launched Bobbi Brown Long-wear Waterproof Liner for about a month now and wanted to share my thoughts. I’ve got three out of the eight shades to show you today.

Urban Decay Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner: when vibrant colour meets longevity!

Hello everyone! Saturday is a blessed day, isn’t it? Yay for Saturdays! I’m finally feeling more lively today, after so many days of being unwell, which is a relief. Spent a gorgeous Saturday with family, in front of the fireplace. It’s sunny in Athens, yes. But we fancied a bit of fire, so no comments, haha! I was showing my mum the Urban Decay Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner this afternoon, suggesting she gives this product a go herself. You know, she has oily lids which absorb colour (!), so not all products work on her. But this one did. And lasted all day. It’s that awesome! Let me share my thoughts with you, although as you might have figured, it’s a win!

My Valentine’s Day make-up with, mostly, Bobbi Brown products!

Hello my beauties! How’s life treating you all this fine weekend? London is deciding whether to snow or not, so it’s freezing cold and wet. Since the weather is far from the best, I will just ignore it and get on with my life, thinking about more pleasant things! Such as Valentine’s Day for example! And Valentine’s Day makeup! And, more specifically, Valentine’s makeup with Bobbi Brown products and the new Nars Soft matte Concealer!

For the purposes of this post, I mostly used Bobbi Brown Products, excluding the concealer which is the new Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer and the blush which is the Armani Sheer Fluid. I’m testing both and, so far, loving them. I will review the Nars concealer in a separate post next week, so stay tuned! You can also find a full list of products at the end of the post, if you’re interested, although you can definitely recreate this look or a similar one with any cosmetics you already have. The colours I used are classic and the look I went for is wearable but with impact, especially in the eyes. Sparkly caramel eyes, soft but luminous bronzy cheeks and nude lips, with a pop of sparkly blue liner! Here is the look in day light:
