Another Hollywood beauty secret revealed to us by celebrity make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury! And this is also her answer to the liquid lipstick trend that’s all over at the moment. If you read this blog, you will know my lips are quite dry, so I’ve recently decided to go back to more creamy formulations and stop buying matte lipsticks, because much as I like them they inevitably feel less comfortable. However, when they Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips were launched, I had to make an exception! And I haven’t regretted it.
Where’s the weekend gone? Sigh… I hope you’ve had an amazing time and you’re ready for the new week! I’m sort of ready, but I think I’m in need of another holiday already! Busy times ahead you see and just the thought of it makes me shiver 😂! On a more positive note, let’s talk about LIPSTICK!! Have you seen the new matte lipsticks by Nars? And how about the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo? I checked both of them out last week when I went shopping and thought I’d make a swatch post for you, in case you’re eyeing something. So, here goes a brief introduction to the muchly awaited Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment and my first impressions on the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo.
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.
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!
