I got really excited when this brand came out, because of Trinny Woodall and because of the whole new concept behind it.
Trinny Woodall is a well-known face on the fashion and beauty world, as a beauty and style advisor with a strong, bubbly and shameless energy. Her new range of beauty products, unlike so many new launches that one can’t differ from the next, really brings a new concept to the table: a mix versatility, simplicity and LEGOS! This range of really portable products, fuss-free and with the most lightweight and natural finish, will probably appeal to many.
although I have a great time with Lush’s bath bombs, bath mets and overall fun stuff, to me Lush is an overall really solid green-oriented brand with great products in all ranges. Lush is hardcore cruelty-free, many of their products are vegan, and they claim all of the chemicals they still use on their products (fragrance, sulfates, preservatives) to not be harmful for the skin, especially in the concentrations they use.
I had to had to do a video on my everyday Lush favourites.
nose disclaimer: I love soft, creamy, nutty scents, vanilla absolute, and then soft roses, coconut and coffee sort of aromas. not too much into the strongly fruity, tropical, sickening sweet or floral end of the smell spectrum. but all of this has to do with preferences, right? nothing like giving it a whiff in store ;)
on a great day out with friends, went to the NYX store and got some goodies. want to know what I’m thinking of the products?
let me know what are *your* NYX go-tos and the new releases I should get my hands on!
after a long wait (and a lot of trees killed in the process)this ps with customs, I finally dug deep into my little package from the other side of the world, getting to know a bit more about Korean drugstore beauty and skincare.
I’ve been playing around with a pack of three of the most famous Peter Thomas Roth Face Masks I discovered at Sephora — 3 beautiful and deliciously scented travel-sized pots with enough product for quite a few applications.
it can’t be all about high-end… I mean, a girl has got to eat!
on the day I tried to go to the Sephora’s Marc Jacobs launch, it was so chaotic when I arrived, I decided to blow off some steam at Kiko while I waited for the thing to calm down a bit. I ended up leaving with some cool stuff from their Special Editions for Fall and Winter — no nail polish on sight! proud! — and I thought I’d show you what I got.
when you go through your stash and realize you have almost a full face of makeup from the same brand, and realise that the shopping of most of the products occurred in the past year or so, you know they’re doing something right.
Too faced is a girly-cute-vintage-inspired-with-a-touch-of-madness-design makeup brand from California, on the affordable yet high-end scale of things, that can be purchased virtually and physically basically everywhere (bonus points) and a selection of star-products that have been raved one by one all over the place. I decided to gather them all in one post and throw them a party.
