Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Désir De Jour’ Favs

Above (Clockwise): Ombres De Jours Couture Palette Collector, Rouge Volupté Shine No. 28 Rose Intime and No. 29 Ambre Indescent, Volupté Tint in Oil in no. 5 Cherry My Chérie and No. 6 Peach in Love, Palette Lumiere de Jour Glow Enhancing Pressed Powder, La Laque Couture in no. 59 Nuit Noire and no. 58 Nuit Blanche. I have the sneaking suspicion that this ‘Spring Collections’ thing might not bode well with my desicion to save money but, seriously, how can one resist (at least, making wishlists for) them? The YSL Désir De Jour one features too many gorgeous things not to take notice. I highly recommend checking out the full range & grabbing your favorites before they fly off the selves. I love all of the products above but, realistically, I think I’ll go for one of the Tint in Oils (no. 5 Cherry My Chérie), the two nail polishes & the darker Rouge Volupté Shine. What do you think? Already got your hands on some items (what did you think)? Planning on buying any …

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 …
