Dior Metallics Collection for Fall 2017: Review, Swatches & Make-up look

It’s almost August and little by little the limited edition make-up collections are on their way! It’s so funny that a couple of weeks ago, we were enjoying the Greek sea and sun and now I’m reviewing an autumn collection. I’m sure those of you living in warm climates haven’t even thought about autumn yet, right? In any case, the fashion and make-up industry move fast, and as such, here goes the brand new Dior Metallics Collection for Fall 2017. It’s one of the first autumn launches now available in the UK.

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. I can hear the waves more than I can see the sea itself; you see it’s almost midnight. Somehow I can’t sleep tonight (I blame it on the ice cream), so I thought I’d write a bit as I relax on our hotel balcony. It’s warm, breezy and quiet after all, so writing would be a pleasure. As would be talking about the new Chanel Ombre Premiere eyeshadows. Have you guys checked them out? I’ve put some of them to the test since they launched in the UK and here go my thoughts.

Guerlain Terracotta Sun Trio for Summer 2017: Review & Swatches

Hello beautiful! This is Eleni reporting from Greece! I was fortunate enough to be able to spend most of this fine spring month back home in Athens this year and you cannot imagine how grateful I am. I, therefore, promise there will be no moaning about the weather for the next three weeks or so; you know, for a change ;). The sun is wonderful here and I’m going crazy with my bronzer, trying to look like I got a “British” tan of some sort (while, as you’d expect, I’m at my palest)! Thankfully, I remembered to take with me a bronzer which I know I can rely on: the Guerlain Terracotta Sun Trio for Summer 2017. A new launch which isn’t just a pretty item; it really *works*!

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette, Beauty Glow: Review, Swatches and FOTD.

Hello, hello! I hope you’re all having a wonderful Saturday! We are slowly and steadily approaching the end of April and the summer not only feels, but also is, so much closer. Even if the weather in London keeps on being moody at times (thankfully no rain!), many brands started to release their summer collections or give us sneak peaks into them, to only make us long for the sun more! Trends show that it’s all about a glowing bronzed complexion this year and that’s what the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette, Beauty Glow, aims at providing too!
