Caught In Action: Having Fun with Tom Ford Lips & Boys, Tomas, Liam, Gustavo, Jack, Blake, Stravros, Guillermo and Alasdhair

You met my boys last week didn't you? I was having some fun with them today and wanted to share with you. Tom Ford's Lips & Boys Collection will be available in Germany on the 27th and in the States the store will start selling them on the 26th, so I didn't want to hold my review until after the holidays. 

Here is what me and my boys did...

Chanel Les 4 Ombres #236 Tisse Fantaisie for Rêverie Parisienne Spring 2015 Collection, Review, Swatch, Comparison & FOTD

I am officially on holiday! Yay! Starting from Monday I will be traveling for a week or two with just one day in between at home. Blog might not be active as it is at the moment. I might schedule a few posts, but I am really considering to use the time as a break and a recharge opportunity. This year I have posted around 200 reviews. It takes around 6 hours to prepare a post, including product hunt, comparison search, taking and editing photos, writing a post, which makes 50 full days in a year. I am doing it with passion but the numbers might tell you why I need a break from time to time.

That said, I might not hold back the reviews of a few items I would like to show you as soon as possible. This year the best of posts might be delayed a little. I will try to organize everything hopefully by tomorrow and know more by then.

Today I have the second quad from Chanel's highly coveted Spring Collection (first one, Tisse Paris is reviewed here). I am hearing beauty enthusiasts being head over heels with this collection, for a good reason. Chanel's 2014 Make-up Collections failed to impress but Rêverie Parisienne Spring 2015 Collection looks like it hits the jackpot with feminine and wearable combinations of pink and coral. Chanel Les 4 Ombres #236 Tisse Fantaisie is no exception.

Last Minute Gift Idea: Jo Malone Christmas Cracker

I have been loosing myself in the Spring releases last week, more coming up on this front. The bitter truth is that we have still not finished with X-max shopping! There are three more gifts to be bought, counting on tomorrow to complete it. We will then drive to Strasbourg in the beginning of the week to visit the Christmas Markets there. Here in Stuttgart we have various markets with different themes, such as Baroque, Middle age... In Strasbourg the whole city becomes a Christmas Market! I can't wait to visit them.

If you are as late as I am with your gift shopping and couldn't make up your mind just yet, here is an idea which you might like for family member or a friend who likes to treat herself with pretties, which smell out of heaven...

Chanel Les 4 Ombres #238 Tisse Paris & Rouge Allure Velvet #50 La Romanesque for Rêverie Parisienne Spring 2015 Collection, Review, Swatch & FOTD

December is that time of the year that we hope for a white X-mas while reading Spring, even Summer fashion news. Some companies went ahead and released their Spring make-up collections in the States while in Europe we have to wait until the end of festive season for them to hit the counters. One way or the other a new Chanel Quad is always exciting, especially after they are reformulated this year and became one of my favorite formulas in the market. 

Today I would like to share my thoughts on Chanel Les 4 Ombres #238 Tisse Paris with you, together with a sneak peek of Rouge Allure Velvet #50 La Romanesque

Chanel Le Vernis #641 Tenderly, #643 Desirio and #645 Paradisio for Rêverie Parisienne Spring 2015 Collection, Swatch, Review & Comparison

For me, it is always one of the most exciting posts to write when Chanel releases new nail polishes. If you follow the blog (or just happened to check out my stash), you know by now that I am an avid nail polish collector. Chanel Le Vernis has been on top of my favorites list for years. This year I turned lucky and got my hands on Spring Collection nail polishes much before than I would have ever anticipated. Thanks to two very special people who made this possible for me.

Today I am happy to share the swatches and comparisons for Chanel Le Vernis #641 Tenderly, #643 Desirio and #645 Paradiso for Rêverie Parisienne Spring 2015 Collection.

Rainy Eyes with Laura Mercier's Watercolour Mist Eye & Cheek Palette for Spring 2015, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Spring came! Ok, I must have became a little exciting after feeling the sun rays on my face for a brief moment today. Spring certainly arrived to the Beauty-Blogosphere though. Each day I am seeing more product-reviews from Spring Collections. Reading them makes me remember of how beautiful it is to see the nature wake up again. Pink and white flowers on the trees. Trees are dressed in green. All together they sing a love song for the rain. You know that feeling? Would you like to have it in form of a palette?

Tom Ford Lips & Boys My Picks, Tomas, Guillermo, Gustavo, Stravros, Alasdhair, Liam and Jack, First Impressions & Swatches

I hope you are having a great weekend. Have just found out that world is discussing another creation of Tom Ford but today I would like to write about his boys. For the those who might not heard about it yet, Tom Ford released fifty clutch sized lipsticks in a collection called "Lips & Boys". Each lipstick bares a name of a boy. They are called clutch sized since they include 2 g of product instead of 3 g retailing for $32 instead of $50. The motto of the collection is "why take one if you can take two". Can't agree more so I went for seven *cough cough*, which will keep me very busy in the next couple of days. I just thought I would go ahead and post a few swatches for the record before I finish testing them properly.
