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!

Happy May Day! I hope you’re all enjoying the first day of this wonderful month! And I also hope it’s sunny where you are because London, being its typical self, decided to rain today… sigh! Still, the flat is filled with flowers, brownies and homemade food, so life is good! I’m preparing lots of surprises for you in the coming few days, but before all of that happens, let’s go do some shaking! I’m mostly referring to the new Lancôme Matte Shaker, but some dancing is allowed for sure, if that takes your fancy!

Swatch Sunday! Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipsticks come in so many beautiful shades, it’s hard to pick only one!

Hello there! I hope you’re all having a glorious Sunday! It’s the week before Easter and a long Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, so I’m super exited about that already. We had such sunny weather today in London that the temperatures were close to 25 degrees! One of the most beautiful spring days so far, marking that the summer is not too far away! Speaking of spring and summer, I’ve noticed that during this time of year, I’m so much more into cheek and lip products than the rest of the year. As such, it’s always good to discover some great new lipstick launches! Let me show you the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick today; there are so many different shades I’m eyeing!
