Narciso Poudrée Eau de Parfum For Woman, Review

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Happy hump day. I can't believe the week is almost over. Contrary to many of you, I'd rather have it longer since I don't have lectures this week. Ah, good times are soon over. The problems on blog front goes on. I would like to write again, in case you are having any problems seeing the content please let me know.

Recently Narciso Rodriguez added a third fragrance to Narciso line. I have previously reviewed Narciso EdP here and Narciso EdT here. The former being gardenia&rose and the latter peony take on to the signature musky heart. The new fragrance Narciso Poudrée Eau de Parfum is yet an interesting creation. It has to be my favourite among the three. So much for spoilers, onto the thoughts...

MAC Vibe Tribe Collection, My Picks, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

I hope your week started wonderfully. This week we have a so called Spring Holiday, hence no lectures. I am using it to prepare the rest of the lectures I have until the end of June. This year has been so hectic, I feel like I already deserve a summer holiday!

By the way for those of you who carefully observed that some things have changed on the blog front, you are right. I was using a slider, one that showed some photos of the recent posts on the top of the page, then it started not working so I contacted the designer. She offered me that I install the new version of the theme but I lost all my fonts and the slider has some problems at the moment. Also the page counts dropped dramatically since I changed to the new look. I am not sure if it is because of people not being able to see it properly and close it? If you are having problems with this one please let me know and I will check that out.

Let's get back to make up. Today I would like to show you my picks from MAC's main summer collection Vibe Tribe. I am usually not big on summer collections but I think within MAC limited collections, summer had always been an highlight for me. Last Year's Wash & Dry Collection (reviewed here and here) as well as legendary Alluring Aquatic Collection (here and here) were all summer collections after all. All in all I found this year's collection a bit of a let down once compared to the last two years but there were still gems in there. Here are my thoughts about the pieces I picked up.

Tom Ford Soleil Collection for Summer 2016, My Picks, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Friday, May 13, 2016

I hope you are all doing fine. I am so glad to be able to make it to this week since next week I will have a week off the lectures. This semester have been very busy so if you are still hanging around, I am very grateful about it *big hugs*. On top of all that came extra stress about a (good!) citizen being too sensitive about someone driving over red by mistake on a perfectly empty night traffic. 

I am so positive and happy about the week off that I want to share pretty things with you today. I have been enjoying my picks from Tom Ford Summer Collection for the last two weeks. I almost explicitly used products from this collection recently so I believe if you are still pondering about what to get, this might be of help. I have Bicoastal Sheer Cheek Duo, The Afternooner Contouring Compact, Ultra Rick Lip Colors in Aphrodite, Purple Noon and Temptation Waits as well as Blanc Soleil Eau de Perfume. Without further ado, here are my thoughts...

Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour, Nudes & Vamps, Review, Swatch & Comparisons

Sunday, May 8, 2016

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I have been silent lately, due to circumstances I explained during the last post, I didn't feel like writing something cheerful. In between I came to terms with being very tired and not seeing a red light. People are not machines but the system should be able to ignore exceptions. I drive since years and I hardly have speed ticket. Unfortunately for some people rules are more important than anything else. I will close this subject here and then. I have never been a soldier of rules *sigh*.

Chanel recently released ten new shades with a new formula called Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour. I swatched and compared the pinks and the reds here. Today I would like to share my thoughts about the nudes and the vamps. The shades I am going to show you are: #504 Organdi, #514 Roubachka, #516 Mariniére, #522 Monochrome, #520 Garçonne.

Hugo Boss Woman Extreme, Man Extreme Eau de Parfum, Review

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

I hope your weekend and the start of the week was better than mine. I had a big shock on the weekend as I received a mail with a remark that they are taking away my drivers license for a month because some stupid guy on the street decided to call the police for me violating a red light and later on insisted to press charge against me. I am a super careful driver who drive actively over ten years and has no record of any charges, yet one person's word seem to be enough for taking away my license? If I get a lawyer, I have to pay around a thousand bucks on top of that. I am without words for how the system works *shakes head* and I have no memory of violating anything! 

So you know why I was so silent once again on the weekend. Today I am back with two new releases. Hugo Boss revamped their signature perfumes, both female and male version. I have to admit that I used the male version of this for a few months after a friend left it to me when she was returning back to her country. I love the original Hugo Boss Man EdP.  Here are my thoughts on the Extreme versions.

Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder Pink Glow, Blush Duo Sand Pink/Pale Pink & Nourishing Lip Color #15 Berry, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Saturday, April 30, 2016

Wish you a wonderful weekend. Next week I will have a half week thanks to a public holiday on Thursday so I am gliding through the weekend more or less, delaying everything I have to do until Wednesday, human nature. It also started getting warmer in Germany. Last week it snowed! 

I acquired some products from Bobbi Brown recently which I would like to share with you today. The brand released a number of collections and new formulas. From Beach Nudes Collection Highlighting Powder Pink Glow caught my eye with its unique two shaded appearance. Shortly after Malibu Nudes Collection hit the stores with very chic Nude Finishing Powders and Blush Duos. I got to test the Blush Duo in Sand Pink/Pale Pink from that collection which I would like to share with you today. For the lips there is a new formula called Nourishing Lip Color Oil-Infused Shine. I have #15 Berry to show you today.

Chanel Le Vernis Long Wear Nail Colour Reds, Review, Swatch & Comparison

Friday, April 29, 2016

Happy Friday! Between the dying flowers and some free work days I managed to put together some posts. The biggest challenge had been the flowers really. How come some of them die the next day before I can snap a few photos *shakes head*

Chanel reformulated their nail polishes and as usual these were released in the States like months ago. You can tell that I am slightly frustrated to keep up with the new releases in Germany, especially from Chanel. Most of the other brands are keeping up their dates rather close across the globe. These are made in France so I can't help but wonder why our neighbours keep sending it across the ocean instead of letting us have some of that *frowns*.

There are ten new shades as well as some of the classical shades being rereleased in the new long wearing formula. I have purchased the new shades. I would like to share the first five of them with you today. These are Chanel Le Vernis Long Wear Nail Color #500 Rouge Essentiel, #506 Camélia, #508 Shantung, #510 Gitane and #512 Mythique. I am working on the comparison swatches of the other five which I will soon report about. I am glad that I could also give three of these a long week's test. My thoughts are after the jump...

Clarins Multi-Active Jour/Nuit Skincare, Review & Mother's Day Giveaway

Monday, April 25, 2016

I hope you had a great start to the week. I was a bit sleep deprived during the weekend so I was like in a dream all day. And it is so cold right now in Germany, you wouldn't believe when I say it snowed? I don't know what is wrong with weather really. I am also concerned about the birds who are back. I hope it gets better soon.

I have been testing new skin care launches from Clarins, two of which I would like to share with you today, Clarins Multi-Active Jour and Multi-Active Nuit. In case you are located in Germany or Austria, there is also a give-away at the end of this post which you may like to enter.

Sisley Paris Phyto Lip Twists #10, #11, #14, #15 & Eye Twists #10, #11, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Happy weekend everyone. Thanks so much for showing love yesterday. I was a little shy to post after so many days of silence, to the point although I had some posts ready, I was delaying not to see the reaction *closes eyes*.

In the end of February when I was having a break *dreamy sigh* I got to visit Sisley in Munich to play with new shades of Sisley Paris Phyto Lip Twists and Phyto Eye Twists and met Melanie and Melanie *giggle*. Do you also wish for something between two people who have the same name? I did and got some of the products to try, which I would like to share with you today, right after the jump.

Dior Polka Dots Colour & Dots Manicure Kits, Swatch & Review

Saturday, April 23, 2016

Surprise, it is me! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and still hanging around after a week's silence. I am so sorry for that. I might be on and off until the end of June, that is two more months but I promise to become extra active after that to make up for the things and hoping to see you all and read your comment especially during this very busy period when I try extra hard to get the reviews up. I worked hard yesterday for the blog, swatched tens of nail polishes and took lots of photos so hoping to be able to post more often this week and the week after that. Fingers crossed.

Dior's Summer 2016 Collection makes me sing "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini". I love the theme of the collection, Polka Dots but honestly I had a very hard time finding something to purchase. I ended up with three of the nail polish sets including a doting tool and two small sized (7 ml instead of 10ml) nail polishes. Other than that? Unfortunately eye shadow formula is not calling me and lip products are not very exciting either. I was thinking about getting one of the bronzers, one with pinks in it but those are permanent so can wait a little. Have you picked up anything? Any suggestions? My thoughts and swatches of Manicure kits are right after the jump.
