After releasing few collectables Mugler started the year with a new member of the Alien family, I’m talking about Alien Fusion, a floral-sweet Eau de Parfum which seems to be an Alien spring/summer option with that hint of fresh ginger for other it would be suitable for colder months, everything comes to personal taste and skin type, if your is quite tricky with perfumes performance and longevity then this one would suit you perfectly. A new addiction for the Alien lovers and a good chance to make it up for the ones who are not fans of it. Continue reading “Perfume Review: Alien Fusion by Mugler”

MAC, Studio Waterweight Foundation

IMG_0780

It has been a while since the last time I used a MAC foundation and normally would be the classics from the brand so when I saw this I noticed I have never tried it before and the name really caught my attention, I’m talking about the Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation. I said many times down here I do have normally oily skin except on winter that could actually turn into dry, another thing I always say is that I hate cakey make up and how I see on the street and even beauty consultants wear an overdose of high coverage foundation, no, no, no. Many of you would say “Elle I want full coverage because I have bad skin, I have acne, rosacea or any other issue” great you can get a full coverage but without making so obvious to others eyes, plus there is nothing more annoying of that heavy foundation sensation on your face, well here we have one solution.

“A woman can conquer the world with the right shoes.” From here comes the inspiration of Good Girl, I have to admit the bottle makes a huge marketing buying decision specially for blind purchases a clear example is my mom that wanted the perfume only for the bottle, the question is …Does really worth adding this to my collection?

41687580_320345761881578_4830607238750041945_n.jpg

As many of you probably know Charlotte Tilbury rarely have an eyeshadow palette on its permanent collection in fact last year a limited edition one showed up almost at the end of the year at it was sold out in one day, So this year Charlotte surprised us with another palette the Stars In your Eyes Palette, this one is still a limited edition but lately I noticed that many of their “limited edition” became permanent or they are re-stocking due to the high demand, which is not surprise as this brand really knows what the make-up market wants. Continue reading “Charlotte Tilbury, Stars In Your Eyes Palette”

It became like almost a tradition that every year Lancôme choose to collaborate with a Fashion House to create a unique make up collection this time was the turn to the young emerging Proenza Schouler, a New Yorker spirit brand.

img_0162.jpg

Today I want to share with you a brand that is far more affordable than the ones I tend to use normally, but also a VEGAN and ORGANIC option apart of course of being cruelty free, this is Green People.

They have launched some starter packs, this is one is the Superfood and cost around £10, and has three products on it: Shampoo, Conditioner and Shower Gel all of them in a 30 ml bottles, for me is great to travel, for the ones like Christopher this 3 could last very long and you would have a chance to explore into a vegan beauty routine.

Elizabeth Arden: Dare To Bare Bronzing Gel Pearls

Now days many people loves to use tanning products hoping to avoid the fair pale skin, in my case there is nothing that I hate most than tanning my skin, I don’t use tanning products and I avoid the sun as much as I can, but the truth is that sometimes because of my job I must stay outdoors checking out things fo several hours underneath the sun and obviously I get red and then olive, the worst part is when I take off all my clothes and i see part of my neck tanned or red and the rest of my shoulders, one side of my arms, my legs etc totally white. I decided to try the Dare To Bare Bronzing Gel Pearls from Elizabeth Arden Continue reading “Elizabeth Arden: Dare To Bare Bronzing Gel Pearls”

IT Cosmetics: Your Skin But Better, CC+ Oil-Free Matte & CC+ Illumination SPF 50+

img_0319.jpg

One of the mega stars from IT Cosmetics without a doubt is the full coverage CC Cream that I personally freaking love, so when two different options showed up as alternatives as different finish I couldn’t resist to testing them out. The first one that came out was the Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination SPF 50+, an option to give an extra glow to the foundation finish touch, later came an option pretty wisely dedicated to oily skin: Your Skin But Better, CC+ Oil-Free Matte SPF 40.

Björk & Berries, White Forest Collection

img_0157-e1538398698690.jpg

The cold months are coming and for me that means candles and diffusers to make my home a cosy place, and a powerful and delicate fragrance that would persist on my skin. That’s why I tried few items from Björk & Berries, a swedish luxury and ecological brand.

I tried their latest collection: White Forest,  a sensual and melodramatic perfume of wood and fresh forest air, an exciting and mysterious scent of the deep Swedish forest that includes birch and pine. White Forest comes in a range of unisex perfume, body care and home products with natural and organic ingredients of the highest quality. The skin care products are based on organic birch extract that makes the skin toned, soft, firm and elastic. Continue reading “Björk & Berries, White Forest Collection”

Bobbi Brown Bronzed Nudes Edition Palette

I have to admit when it comes to Bobbi Brown I tend to go mostly for the Foundations, primers, powders, nut not really for the colour section.but when I saw this limited edition palette I remembered that I binned all my nudes ones and needed one so it was like “come with mama”.

Bobbi Brown has a new limited-edition Nude on Nude Eyeshadow Palettes, beautiful for a neutral with a twist eye look. If you’re one who doesn’t wear a lot of eyeshadow, are just getting into makeup, or want something easy to wear every day it’s a great option.

GLAMGLOW Instamud 60 Second Pore Refining Treatment

glamglow

I have to admit that GLAMGLOW masks are one of my favourites and this yellow packaging called my attention, the second thing that make me curious was the “instamud” 60 seconds, as you might know muds, clay and other type of mask needs 30-45 minutes on the face to work. So I have to admit I was a bit skeptical also the type of the bottle I had the feeling that would go empty very fast. Continue reading “GLAMGLOW Instamud 60 Second Pore Refining Treatment”
