Look Fantastic/ Bare Minerals Haul

I’m back with yet another beauty haul which took shape, very innocently, when I tried to re-stock my Caudalie Hand Cream via LookFantastic. I had been hearing reading loads about the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lipsticks and glosses and since we can’t really get them in store where I come from, I thought I’d briefly check out swatches online and order one of each, just to see what the fuss was about. Fast forward to a couple of days ago, when I received my LookFantastic package containing: – One 30 ml Caudalie Hand Cream – One Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss (in Maverick) – Three (!) Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipsticks (in Get Ready, Raise the Bar & Live Large) In my defense, I was getting one thing delivered anyway (plus Bare Minerals is so budget friendly), so it all kinda made perfect sense. Now, I haven’t actually used the hand cream yet – since I am still only half way through the 3 tubes of L’Occitane I bought myself just before Christmas (!) …

Beauty Obsession of the Day…

Looks like I can’t help but be attracted to Marc Jacobs makeup. I guess it’s a good thing I have to travel to Athens, each time I fancy getting my hands on any. That said, I had been planning a little trip there anyway (probably in about a month) and these New Nude Sheer Lip Gels have just made my ‘to-buy’ list (along with my favorite Roses et Reines L’Occitane hand cream, which I’m slowly running out of & a bottle of Eau Duelle by Diptyque, which I’ve been eying since Christmas). The beauties above come in seven shades but I’m lusting over No.150 – Eat Cake (L) described as a ‘rosy nude’ and No. 110 –  Role Play (R) described as a ‘dusty rose’ (I am also currently pining for the #Instamarc Light Filtering Contour Powder and the, slightly older, Magic Marc’er Precision Pen Waterproof Eyeliner – but that’s a story for a different day post). These little beauties (and the rest of the Spring 2015 Collection) are available now at Marc Jacobs and …

Coming Soon: Chanel Rouge Coco (2.0)

Each and every Spring I find myself lusting over all the new collections – and, with so many gorgeous new offerings popping up on my radar, 2015 is shaping up to be no exception. This year, however, I’m also eagerly anticipating the (revamped) release of an existing favorite: Rouge Coco by Chanel. According to what I’ve been reading in the press: This Spring 2015, Chanel introduces the new Rouge Coco Lipstick. The formula is entirely revamped for even more gentleness, comfort, radiance and melt-away quality. Integrating their new Hydraboost complex, the lipstick leaves lips with a supple, comfortable veil of hydration which deeply nourishes and plumps lips. The formula also allows for build able coverage, with a natural effect with just a single stroke or two strokes or more for even bolder color. The collection features 29 new shades in 6 colour palettes (Nudes, Oranges, Pinks, Rosewoods, Reds and Plums), each named after the friends, loves and muses of Mademoiselle Chanel. Now, almost all of the 29 shades are ‘oh so wearable’ and -ideally- there …
