Chanel Le Vernis #669 Chataigne, #671 Ecorce Sanguine, #679 Vert Obscur for Fall 2015, Swatch, Review & Comparison

Happy Friday! I am super behind the comments but please bare with me. 

I am almost on holiday. Today I submitted my documentation, so the only thing left to do is pack my things and leave after my return. I hope there will be not so many corrections. I am so ready for holiday and can't wait for my birthday dinner tomorrow. We made a reservation in Heidelberg. I usually prefer to go to Strasbourg to spend a day shopping and there are also very good restaurants but we have just been there some weeks ago so decided to make a little change. We have never been to that particular restaurant in Heidelberg, so it is exciting but also a little risky. Let's see if Travel Advisor does the trick. Love the city, have you ever been to Heidelberg?

I have been working my way through Chanel Fall Collection. Today I have the nail polishes for you. I swatched them at Instagram already. With this post I would like to write a full review and also share some comparisons.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Blogger 3.0 My Picks, Review & Swatches

The craziness of my week is going on as I am trying to finish everything before going to holiday. I hope your week is easier than mine and guess what? It is almost over, yay! Today I was talking to a colleague and said "Oh today is Friday, there is fish" and see it was only wishful thinking. Do you have the same effect, once you work too hard, you feel like it is Friday already at Wednesday or Thursday.

Yesterday I have seen that Rescue Beauty Lounge is having a free shipping worldwide. I believe it is only until tomorrow noon. Last time when I posted swatches of RBL, many asked me how to get hold of these in Europe. Rescue Beauty ships worldwide. It is $13.50 per shipping to Germany, so rather expensive if you are eyeing only one or two colors. So this is your chance if you have one or two shades in your wish list. A few of what I am about to show you may steal your heart!

Chanel Les 4 Ombres #254 Tissé D'Automne, Stylo Yeux Waterproof #918 Ardent for Les Automnales Collection Fall 2015, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Count down started. Only four days left for my holiday and 3 days for my birthday. Right before I go there are some happy deliveries which are coming with me so that I can share with you throughout my holiday. Fall is my favorite make-up season and all the pieces are super exciting. Today it is about one of my favorite products I got to try out this season. I was just about to pass it because I am not big on khakis. I am so happy I haven't because it is more than a khaki quad. Today it is about Chanel Les 4 Ombres #254 Tissé D'Automne and its stunning combination with Stylo Yeux Waterproof #918 Ardent. Spoiler? You need them both!

Chanel Les Automnales Collection for Fall 2015, Eyes & Cheek Swatches & First Impressions

I hope you survived the first day of the week. They say starting is the half way to the finish, so now we are almost finished *wink wink*. On Sunday I will fly to holiday, I can't wait but I have to finish with documentation before quitting, boooh.

You might have seen that yesterday I shared some pictures of epic Chanel-heavy USA haul at Instagram and Facebook. Today I would like to write about my first impressions and show you some swatches. I started testing the eye products today so in a few days there will be full reviews. I will post about the nail polishes in a separate post. My haul concentrates on eye & cheek products since I have a strange habit of not buying lipsticks without trying. Considering that the collection will be out on the 10th of October in Germany, I will have to wait quite long before completing the look. I might just go ahead and get a few from abroad in the meanwhile.

Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow Ex-26 Yuuaoi (夕 蒼) for Fall 2015, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Happy Sunday everyone! Today the weather is beautiful, it is not too warm and sunny, also not so humid thanks to yesterday's wind. I was dreaming of enjoying a cup of coffee at the balcony. I then found out there is only one coffee capsule left. I was being extra careful while placing it in the machine because sometimes if I don't place it properly, it mixes with too much water and doesn't taste good enough to drink. After all the effort I put in there, I was thinking something else (about all the job changes and stuff) while reaching for the sugar cup, just to find out that it was empty. I sighed and opened another cupboard to get some sugar to fill in. Guess what I have done to the last coffee capsule, I flavored it with salt by mistake! AGGHH! *punches herself while drinking salty coffee*. Now I am trying to convince myself that there is chocolate with salt so why not coffee right? Right?

Alright back to today's beauty. After going crazy over the burgundy quad from Suqqu Fall 2015 Collection (reviewed here) which is going to be permanent in line, today I would like to show you the limited edition quad from the same collection. Please welcome Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow Ex-26 Yuuaoi.

Teoxane Perfect Skin Refiner & R[II] Eyes RHA Advanced Eye Contour, Review

Yay for the weekend! Today it is very windy here which feels much better than yesterday which was sticky super warm and humid. I am trying to start finish the documentation at work since I have only a week and a few more days left. I will fly to my yearly beach holiday next weekend and I didn't get anything prepared for that one either. It all looks like a lot of work so I will see what I can get done. 

I have been to the half yearly Beauty Press Event in the beginning of June. It was my first time there and I really like and appreciate the idea of bringing the brands and bloggers together for information exchange. There were around 50 bloggers and 13 brands. The brands had stands and representatives who introduced us to their new product lines. 

Teoxane was a brand I was familiar with before the event. Some of their products were in my " super curious to try" wish list. The brand is known by their patented ingredient called RHA, Resilient Hydraulic Acid. It is originally developed for injection but now also available in their creams and serums.  I was provided two of the products from their line to try out, Perfect Skin Refiner and RHA Advanced Eye Contour. After testing them over a month, here are my thoughts.

Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow 20 Kaoribara (香薔薇) and Gel Eyeliner Pencil Ex-01 Bordeaux for Fall 2015, Review, Swatch & FOTD

I am super excited to share today's post and the upcoming two more posts about Suqqu Fall 2015 Collection. I have started testing Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow 20 Kaoribara last weekend. Then what happened is that I couldn't stop testing! There are a few more items that need to be photographed from other Fall Collections as well as Suqqu but the bordeaux/burgundy hues, they are too stunning to go past it. So I decided to stay there and enjoy. I came up with two different looks which I would like to share with you today as well. Hope you enjoy them.

Matching to the palette, I also have one of the new Suqqu Gel Eyeliners in limited edition color Bordeaux. This is a new product at Suqqu Line-up so I am excited to share my thoughts on that as well. Right after the *jump*.
