Want It: Givenchy Rouge Interdit Lipsticks

It feels like I haven’t posted  anything in “Want It” category for ages, but I have finally found something which has my name written all over it! And it is the new relaunched  Rouge Interdit lipstick which is already available for $34 from Barneys.

Givenchy is the luxury brand  which I personally find the most aesthetically pleasing when it comes to the design of their beauty products.  I die for their packaging. I’d describe it is a luxury rock chic. And they have been killing it for the last several years.

I am still over the moon with my Le Rouge lipstick; I find the case it comes it to be

Winter 2019 Lifestyle Favourites: Beauty, Style and Health

I did not write  “monthly favourites” features  recently, so  I will try to combine my winter favourites  in one post. But since I could go on, and on I will be very strict with myself and will only allow 10 things. Wish me luck!

Oh, and happy 1st of March! How is it Spring already?

1 Perfume. 

In winter I really enjoyed trying new fragrances, reading about them, and listening to podcasts about perfumery. I especially loved these episodes about Jo Malone and Frederic Malle. I’ve acquired a few sample sets which let me try new scents. I had to move a few times in Autumn, and, unfortunately, lost my Turin/Sanchez perfume book (Amazon/Amazon UK) in the process, so will have to get a new, 2018 addition.  I also really want these little samples of Frederic Malle and Margiela magical creations. And a bottle of Le Labo Rose 31 (as seen here).

2. My Reds.

Would this even be a favourites feature from me without mentioning red nail varnishes? My two loves this winter were CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer in Red-Y To Roll, a true long-lasting red, a gorgeous classic, and Givenchy Le Vernis in 06 Carmi Escaprin, a punchy fiery orange based red.

3. Skincare Routine ( on Insta).

I am cheating here a bit, and just mentioning a lot of products but they all are phenomenal. I really have to write detailed reviews on each. But, so far, I can say that I’ve used them all for months and can see incredible results. Omorovicza Illuminating Moisturiser, Darphin Ideal Resource Light Re-Birth Overnight Cream, Anne Semonin Precious Serum, Lierac Mesolift Fatigue Correction Ultra Vitamin Enriched  Refreshing Serum. I swear by each product!

4. Good Mascaras.

SS16 New Lipsticks: Tom Ford, Givenchy and Chanel

Spring is the time for new lipstick releases, as we could see in the previous years. And we can see the same situation for SS16, too.

I have already posted about the new releases from Clarins and YSL. But there are just so many more coming out our way – think Guerlain, Lancome, Chanel, Tom Ford, Givenchy, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Armani and more.

Today let’s take a look at three of them: Chanel, Tom Ford and Givenchy.

Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-tip Eyeliner

I’ve been having a thing for Givenchy makeup lately. And whenever I run out of a product, it is one of the first brands I look into.

My favourite BY TERRY Ligne Blackstar in So Black (here) dried out right before the wedding, which was very unexpected, and I was almost in a panic mode, to be honest.  But I had to calm down and go shopping for a new eye liner (all the ones I had were not good enough).

It took a while to find the one I would like, as the photo above demonstrates. And   Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-tip Eyeliner was the one.

I really loved the
