Swatch Sunday: Chanel Summer 2017 Cruise Collection

Hello there! I hope you all had a great weekend and a happy Mother’s Day! I don’t get to spend Mother’s Day with my mum every year, since we are based in separate countries, so being home was a real treat this time. We bought some amazing flowers and also met with friends; it was all good fun! As I was celebrating this day in Greece, hubby kindly agreed to help me with a small Chanel haul, since the Cruise Collection has now officially launched in the U.K. Here go some swatches of most products in the Chanel Summer 2017 Cruise Collection and my initial thoughts on my picks!

Nars Charlotte Gainsbourg Review: Ready for that smokey eye!

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!

Urban Decay Basquiat Collection: Swatches, Review and FOTD.

Hello my dears! I hope you’re all enjoying a relaxing Friday! I certainly am- it’s Elton John evening here at RougenApples’ land. What does this mean? I’m writing my blog post, hubby does incomprehensible coding on his pc and we have Elton’s music in the background, because I simply love that voice! But let’s move from one artist to another, shall we? And a different type of art altogether. Jean-Michel Basquiat was an unconventional artist and his graffitti work says it all. The Urban Decay Basquiat Collection is now here to inspire us all through his work!

Every year, there are a couple of limited edition summer collections that excite me more than others. For this year, it was Marc Jacobs’ s Coconut Collection, Chanel’s Le Beiges, Nars Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection and Mac crossed the finish line miles ahead of most with the mouth watering  Mac Fruity Juicy collection for summer 2017! Here are the swatches of the whole Fruity Juicy collection for you and a full review of my picks will follow once I received my order by post this week!
