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.
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!
It’s lipstick week for me this week! I’m determined to organise my lipsticks in terms of colour and formulation (matte, satin, nourishing etc). This is quite a task as I have accumulated a rather large collection through the years, although some of my older lipsticks I mostly collect, rather than wear. Was having a look at my Nars lipsticks yesterday and posted an Instagram photo which lots of you liked. So, I thought I’d give you my thoughts on a couple of more recent launches by the brand: first, the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and second, a personal favourite, the Nars Velvet Lip Glide.
What lipsticks do you tend wear? This is a question I often ask myself too, as I seem to be drawn to many different types of lipsticks, all of them with distinct properties. I even go for matte lipsticks, even if my lips are dry! So, answering my own question wouldn’t be that straightforward, as I can’t say, for example, I normally wear creamy lipsticks. However, I have some boxes to tick when I try a new lipstick out and the more ticks, the higher this lipstick ranks in my collection. Bobbi Brown lipsticks are up there for me. So, I was more than just excited to see that a new lipstick line was launched, namely the Art Stick Liquid Lip! Having tested this rather extensively, here are my thoughts.
Hello! This is Eleni, reporting from London! How are you all? Sorry I haven’t kept up with posting frequently this week, but I was travelling and just started a new project for a couple of months, so got very busy all of a sudden. Still, I’m here now and very happy to speak about a brand new launch from one of my favourite brands. The Bobbi Brown Havana Brights collection lauched last Monday, exclusively, at Fenwick department stores across the UK. It will launch everywhere else, including online, tomorrow, March 9th! So, I wanted this review to be out before then, in case you’re eyeing any items!
