I have, thus far, been extremely good about not caving in and buying… well, everything Hourglass came out with in 2014 (especially the Ambient Lighting Powders and Ambient Lighting Blushes, which I have to admit to being ridiculously tempted by). I suspect this has more to do with the fact that the brand is so hard to get one’s hands on in Greece (and with the rather shocking prices) and less with my actual self-restrain but it is the end result that counts, right? Today, however, I saw something I will most definitely be unable to resist. Enter the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette (an “artist-inspired” , 5- color wonder that comes in 7 glorious shade combinations). I immediately fell for the ‘Obscura’ one, which features some of my all time favorite earthy tones: cream, smokey brown, rose gold (!), coffee & a cool bronze (!!). These little gems are currently only available to Sephora VIB Rouge Members (if that, since they all seem to be sold out at the time of writing) but should soon become …
Marc Jacobs is generally not a (beauty) brand I’m that interested in but, ever since I first saw this a few months back I have been beyond obsessed. With three (gorgeous) mattes & four shimmers, packed in an ultra glossy & sleek packaging – how could I not be?

Unfortunately, Sephora does not ship to Greece and I have yet to find an e-shop that does. Any suggestions?
A refillable palette that’s cute as a button, features paraben- free shades for both the eyes and cheeks and donates 5% of proceeds to charity (The Xerces Society to help protect bees & the environment)? I’m sold! This little treasure packs quite a punch with its 4 shades: Honey, a “glistening golden highlighter for both eyes and cheek”, Nectar, a “flattering warm coral-pink” blush & two eyeshadows in Sky, an “eye-opening sheer blue” & Beehive, a “versatile grey beige”. Available since January 2014 this can be purchased via the Chantecaille official website (only ships to the U.S.), as well as via SpaceNK & Liberty London.
Featuring three eyeshadow colors (pink, grass green and bronze), a deep black eyeliner, a vibrant blush and the plushest, most gorgeous packaging I’ve ever seen – this just made my official lust list. Available at Dior makeup counters everywhere – and online via my tried & trusted: Escentual & Feel Unique
