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 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.

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!

For a review and eyelooks, please click here. In general, it’s a gorgeous collection!
