It’s Fri-yay! I hope you’re all ready to enjoy a well-deserved weekend. Even if I’m still back home and on holiday, I can assure you the weekend is still invaluable since my family is off from work and we get to spend more time together. A weekend can never go unnoticed! I really wanted to fit in a review of my picks from the Nars Charlotte Gainsbourg collection before the weekend, so I hope it’s helpful for those that are thinking about grabbing something from this collection, or those who need some smokey eye inspiration! I’ve swatched the entire collection already, if you’re interested in swatches only/as well.
Hello there! I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful May weekend and recharged your batteries! I’m a happy bunny because I’m flying to Greece tomorrow and will be spending sometime with family (under the sun!) before a very busy summer starts! I think I took a lot of make-up with me this time, including a couple of items that I picked up from the NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection, swatches of which are included in this post! For a review and eyelooks, please click here. In general, it’s a gorgeous collection!
Hello beautiful people! Happy Monday! I hope April started nicely for you all? It certainly did for me, as London has been mostly sunny since the start of April! Can’t complain when the north of Europe gets bright; life is good. On another note, do you like chocolate? I *LOVE* it. And I love anything that bears a chocolate-related name (yes, Too Faced, I’m dreaming about you right now), or reminds me of chocolate colours etc. And that’s exactly what the new NARSissist Loaded Eyeshadow Palette made me think when I saw it. It’s a paradise for golden-brown lovers! But let’s have a closer look at this palette and you’ll see what I mean.
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.
Hello lovely people! This is Eleni still reporting from Greece :D. And I will be doing so till the end of the month, which is fab! I’m preparing a couple of travel posts for you as well, but not saying much more; it’s a surprise! Just stay tuned! For now, let’s stick to the skin and beauty themes. Have you tried the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer that launched not too long ago? Being quite a fan of the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, I really wanted to give it a shot, so I got myself one just as it became available in the UK. Here’s a review of it and a comparison to its predecessor.
