While my latest “Beauty Purchases” post was about affordable makeup and hair care products, this time it’s all about the skincare, and things are more on the luxury side.
I went with my boyfriend because he wanted some products, too. So here is what we’ve got:
1. Eisenberg Homme Exfoliant Visage Purifiant
It makes me think of Breaking Bad, just add H ;) I have never tried anything from this brand and was never really drawn to it, mostly because it has similar prices, as Dior or Chanel, for example. But the boyfriend wanted to try this face scrub. I hope he likes it…
2. DIOR HOMME DERMO SYSTEM Regenerating Moisturizing Balm
This range should be amazing, plus this cream was highly recommended by my favourite sales assistant. All the things she recommends are always amazing, so we just went for it.
Here is a preview of the magical and uber glamorous makeup collection from Dior – Golden Winter.
The promo with Daria Strokous looks very festive and holiday season appropriate. And I personally like to see fuchsia and purple, for a change, not red (not that I don’t love red, but that is a very obvious choice).
What about the collection itself? Dior offer retro-chic golden bottles and tubes (like the last year’s collection), here are the details.

Autumn/Winter season makes me think about beautiful opaque lipsticks. I prefer deep or red shades but it is a matter of taste. Luckily, some of our favourite brands are bringing out new “toys” for us to play with.
Here is a preview of the new Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick. (£25/$34)
This is a CC lipstick which stands for Colour and Care, meaning that it offers a beautiful colour pay off while taking care of your lips. I kind of like the red design of the packaging and the fact that there are tons of shades to choose from. Take a look.
As for Dior,Read More

5 Couleurs Mystic Metallics
I love experimenting with my makeup but sometimes I get stuck in a certain routine, just like now. I have been wearing the same kind of look for the last several weeks almost every day.
So what is it all about?
For the base I’ve been usually using Clarins’ BB Cream or Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer to even out the skin tone. I love that both products feel light on the skin, which is exactly what you want in summer.
I have been skipping blusher lately. Shocker, right? And instead I have been using bronzers, just any that is around, really. Below you can see pictured Clarins, Benefit and Trish McEvoy just as an example.
Finally my skin tone is a perfect match for Jouer highlighter, this warm tinted product gives a beautiful golden glow, just perfect paired with some bronzer. I definitely recommend it for a sun kissed look. As for High Beam, it is a good ol’ favourite of mine, it never fails.
I’ve been hardly using any eye shadows, expect this quad from Daniel Sandler and some matte shades. For me it’s all about theRead More
