Swatch Sunday: Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment and Dior Addict Lip Tattoo

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 馃槀! 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聽Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment and my first impressions on the聽Dior Addict Lip Tattoo.

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聽Clinique Chubby Plump & Shine Liquid Lip Plumping Gloss (aka聽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!

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 Lanc么me Matte Shaker, but some dancing is allowed for sure, if that takes your fancy!
