Burberry Cream Color For Eyes, #100 Gold Copper, #106 Pink Heather, #102 Mink, #110 Damson, Review, Swatch & FOTD

I hope you had a lovely week. Wish you all a happy Xmas and a great new year's eve. I am traveling at the moment, visiting family and friends. I thought I check in to say hi and celebrate your holidays too. We have been non stop eating for three days and it will go on like this two more days. Then there will be a small break until new year's eve. This year we will be home on the 31st to enjoy a self made dinner and a view of fireworks. Before we started driving three days ago, I received super pretty make-up from upcoming collection. I can't wait to go back and try all of these out. 

Oh on a small note, I love love Guerlain Parure Gold Fluid Foundation (reviewed here) and have been wearing it non-stop. I also took it with me but today in the morning I have noticed that I ran out of it. Shoot! The bottle is black and there is no means to see how much in there. And worse, that is the only foundation I took with me *sniff sniff*. I set it flat on a table and hoping I have a little more in the morning which would last me until our return. I just need it two more days *cries*. Oh and not to mention, here everywhere is closed until Monday. They should really improve those bottles. This was unacceptable.

I have been enjoying Burberry Cream Eyeshadow for some months now but waited for the additional pieces to enter my collection before I review it so that I can swatch all of them at once for you. This is why you have a rare occasion of seeing used make-up on he cover photo down there. This can only mean love though, I tell you. I ended up with the shades #100 Gold Copper, #106 Pink Heather, #102 Mink and #110 Damson and here are my thoughts about these.

Skincolor de La Mer Illuminating Powder, Swatch & Review

The holidays started for me, yay! I hope yours is around the corner too. Today we are going to drive to another town to visit family and spend Christmas there. Right before I get a few days off the blog, I thought I will show you something super pretty. 

La Mer is known for their skin care (my favorite must be the Illuminating Eye Gel, reviewed here) but have a small range of cosmetics which also delivers. I have tried The Radiant Concealer (reviewed here) and Reparative Skintint (reviewed here) and was pleased by both. Last year during Holidays I caught a glimpse of their out-of-this-world beautiful Illuminating Powder at the counter and wanted to try it out since than. It was limited edition and was sold out at the time I was in for it. This year when I found out that it is released again, I laid my hands on it. Here are my thoughts on Skincolor de La Mer Illuminating Powder...

International Giveaway: Jo Malone London Christmas Cracker

I hope you have a great start in the week. I would like to go on with the giveaways to raise everyone's mood right before the holidays. Today I have 1 x Jo Malone London Christmas Cracker for you. I love the idea of cracker packed minis which seems to be common in UK. In Germany we are living through Jo Malone London's crackers each year. Last year I have tested one and loved the fact that you can try different bath&body products at once and also layer them in Jo Malone way. The products in the cracker are selected so that they layer well. 

This year's cracker come with the following products:

Blackberry & Bay Cologne (9ml): This is one of my favorite Jo Malone Colognes for a fresh carefree day. I especially like it in Summer but reached for it often to layer with white florals in winter as well. Reviewed here.

Lime Basil & Mandarin Body & Hand Wash (15ml): This lifts your mood instantly when used in the morning. I have been reaching for it often to wash my hands too right before I go to bed to make sure I am having sweet dreams *winks*. Reviewed here.

Peony & Blush Suede Body Cream (15ml): After going fresh with your body wash, add some lovely floral scents on top. I am totally eyeing this one for my next Jo Malone purchase.

Please refer below for entering your details for the giveaway. Good luck *holiday smooch*.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Reloaded, #58 Malik, #60 Drake, #67 Roman, #68 Egon, #74 Theo, Review, Swatch & FOTD

I wish you all a wonderful Sunday. Today I started the day by sleeping long since yesterday was a long and tiring shopping day. On a bright note, we are proud to buy all the gifts on one day including the gifts for each other. I would rather plan and enjoy selecting and buying the gifts but this year I have been super busy because of work. You know the story, men are usually not the best gift planners so they need some ideas & support not to buy the most expensive and useless gift possible LOL.

It is that time of the year again when Tom Ford sends out the best of his boys to conquer out hearts. Last year hubby assisted me with the swatches and I thought this year it would be fun to do it again. So here is me sharing my thoughts on and lip swatches on hubby of five of the shades I have been enjoying, #58 Malik, #60 Drake, #67 Roman, #68 Egon, #74 Theo.

Giorgio Armani Luxe is More Palette for Holiday 2015, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Are you having a nice weekend? As I already predicted at yesterday's post, it was all day shopping for us but great news, we are almost done! It certainly helped to have the shops open until midnight in Stuttgart City. Me and hubby even managed to get presents for each other. I might or might not have gotten a wine/plum Burberry Medium Clifton (such as the one here). I was planning to write the post already a few hours ago but because of the first date with my new purse, it got a bit delayed *wink wink*.

This post is anyway about me being a very bad girl lately after the corrections with my salary went through. I was surfing Sephora France's website, trying to find Nars Dead of Summer Palette which was sold out at Nars EU. I had to have Nars Stud but was not sure about the palette. Then I got distracted and somehow clicked to new arrivals. There it was, Giorgio Armani Luxe is More Palette which I managed to stay away since it was released a month ago in Germany. The reason why I skipped it was because I didn't see myself using the second tier, which is too deep for my skin tone and the first tier was rather shimmery light neutrals which would probably appear similar on my eye lids. But then again it was sold for 130€ here and on Sephora France the price was only 80€. Together with 25% reduction they were offering on one of the items, I tied the knot for 60€. 

For this incredible deal for below half the price, I was sure that it would be worth it. After using it for a week straight, I am not all that sure about it anymore though. Here are my thoughts...

Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme Eau de Parfum, Review & Photos

Fri-yay everyone! This is the first weekend before X-mas so basically we have to work full day (and night) to get the missing presents. This year, it is somehow worse than last years, we haven't even started. Now when I think about the stress ahead, I am not too excited about weekend anymore. *chuckles*

I have been wearing the newest addition to Tom Ford signature perfume line, Noir Femme Eau de Parfum for months now but I held on to the review thinking this is one of the most perfect perfumes you can get for the time of the year. The moment the drops leave the spray it fills the air with a seductive christmas cookie. How can I resist *om nom nom*. Here are my thoughts...

Guerlain Météorites Flocons Enchantés & Voyage Enchanté for Holiday 2015, Review & Swatches

I hope your week started good. I can't believe that next week is already Christmas. I still have so much holiday make-up to show you but I hope that these are good until New Year's Eve since there is so much glow which comes with them.

Guerlain nailed it with their packaging this year. Seriously this must have been one of the prettiest holiday collections of all times with stars, snow flakes and golden details. As soon as the collection went live, most of the products were sold out, starting with the lipstick and Météorites Flocons Enchantés. I literally had to hunt to get my ballz *cough cough*. Although the balls are mostly sold out, compact powder Meteorites Voyage Enchanté is still available in some shops. This is one of Guerlain collectable compact powders with luxuriously heavy metal packaging and it is refillable. That is if you ever dare to spoil its lovely lace surface. I did that for the name of science and here are my thoughts on both of these stunning powders...

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colors #5 Pale Mauve, #18 Hibiscus, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Happy Sunday! It is almost holidays, I hope I can show you all the pretties I have for holidays on time. I am glad to see that I can find some time in the morning to do my make-up although I am pretty busy getting used to the new job. That said the light situation in the morning started to be an issue. I want to photograph the looks I am wearing everyday to show you an FOTD of the corresponding products. I might get a ring light and see how that works for me. I like photographing FOTDs with the day light because the lights wash out the make-up so one has to really apply everything heavily. You know the Instagram/Youtube kind of make-up, very glam but not wearable unless you are working as a street artist with a doll or 17th century costume.

Last week I managed to capture two FOTDs which I would like to share with you today. I have been following how Bobbi Brown gets more attractive for me with each of their releases. I loved how illuminating but not frosty their Brightening Bricks are (reviewed here). Their new Intensive Skin Serum Foundation (reviewed here) is one of my go-to foundation at the moment. I am also testing their new corrector and concealers (review coming up soon). As for Holidays, Sterling Nights Palette  (reviewed here) stole my heart. I recently got to try out two of the newly released Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colors, #18 Hibiscus which is marked as limited edition and #5 Pale Mauve which joins the permanent line. My thoughts are right after the jump.

International Giveaway: Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau de Parfum 50 ml

I hope you are having a fantastic weekend. Mine started great yesterday and going forward in a fantastic way, this is why I haven't blogged much in the last three days. So you know if you don't hear from me, it is rather good news, haha!

Always love Christmas time. Christmas markets are bustling,  everyone is happy and smiling, oh and hot wine smells so good. It is one of the loveliest time of the year and right in the middle of it, thanks to Flaconi (not affiliated), I would like to share one of the most beautiful Flacons ever created with one of my readers. Doesn't Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau de Parfum screams Christmas? In case you missed here is my review. Enter below to win one, good luck and lots of Xmassy hugs!

Burberry First Kisses #03 Rose Blush, #05 Sweet Plum, Lip Velvet #425 Damson & Lip Definer #07 Bright Plum, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Since I have changed jobs, the weeks are starting and ending so fast for me. Once it is the weekend and with the blink of an eye I find myself in the middle of the week. That is good news though since one more blink and it will be weekend again *winks*. The Christmas markets are so lovely at the moment. Last week we were in Esslingen. They have a special theme Christmas market where everything is decorated as in middle ages and people are dressed that way too. There are some games like Archery or one you throw a big stone to meet an egg. So much fun! If you are around or visiting, be sure to check it out.

I know we moved on to holiday season but my heart is still in Fall. I love everything about Fall, the falling leaves, the (plummy) shades of nature, even the mood which comes with it. I can easily wear shades of Fall all year around. Today it is about a few "berry chic" products from Burberry I am adoring at the moment. Burberry recently released First Kisses glosses which are glossy lip balms with a hint of color, in line with the last trends. I also laid my hands on two plum gorgeousness, Lip Velvet in #425 Damson and Lip Definer in #07 Bright Plum. My thoughts and swatches are right after the jump.

Wayne Goss Holiday 2015 Brush, Review & Photos

Wish you all a beautiful Sunday. We have a springy weather here, not very warm but very sunny. Loving it, we got to go out before the sun sets as it started going down as early as 4pm. I don't particularly hate winter but that aspect with shorter days is certainly not my favorite. Not so many days left until Christmas and we are behind our shopping schedule. I am behind my give-away schedule as well because had no time to set up in Rafflecopter. I hope I can get a few done soon. 

I have previously reviewed the first Wayne Goss Brush Set (Part I & Part II) as well as the first Holiday Brush (review) two years ago. Last year Wayne released a white version of the holiday brush which I also ordered. I love the domed shape of these which is great for application and blending at the same time once you get used to work with the right pressure. These were limited edition back then but I see that recently Beautylish brought them back. You can check out my favorite, the white one here (not affiliated). 

This year Wayne comes up with a new limited edition Holiday Brush. It is very different than the ones which were released during the last two years. It is the largest blue squirrel brush Wayne has ever released. It is silky soft and has an interesting shape. It will soon be available for purchase. I don't have pricing information as of today but you can sign up to newsletter for more information and watch his video here. It will exclusively be available via Beautylish. My thoughts and some comparison photos are right after the jump.

Laura Mercier Glam To Go Cheek, Eye & Lip Travel Case, Little Indulgence Hand & Body Cream Set, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Happy weekend to everyone! I was fighting some cold and trying to hang in there with the lectures but I am glad that I feel much better. This weekend we have visitors at some so I will try my best to sneak in a few posts because I got such pretty things to show you. I can't wait.

Laura Mercier released a color and a body & bath collection for holidays as usual. I fell in love with the very wearable shade selection in Glam To Go Eye & Lip Travel Case which comes in a super practical and chic packaging. It is really the definition of grab & go. The first product I have tried from Laura Mercier years ago was their hand cream with Crème de Pistache scent. It is what opened the doors to this brand for me. I still always have a full size of this one in my office and at home as a mood lifter which provides great hand care. This year there are four mini-sized hand & body creams in Little Indulgence Hand Cream Set. My thoughts about both of the sets are right after the jump.
