Why is it that you often want to have things that are hard to get? Or is it just me? After reading all those raves about Josie Maran’s Argan Oil and tarte’s Maracuja oil, I really wanted to get both. Finally the first one is mine, thanks to my friend from the US.
So is it that good, as they say it is?
In my opinion, it is! I have been using several drops, which is easy thanks to the pipette, of it every morning and evening for several weeks now andRead More

Regular readers know that I am a huge fan of red nail polishes, and I am actually very picky, there are not that many that I truly like. My favourite is actually Revlon’s Red, it is a bright true red, not dull, but not neon, not warm toned, but not too cool – it’s a timeless classic.
But I’ve managed to find another red which I love as much, as Revlon. It is Marc Jacob’s Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola. You can see it, freshly applied, here.
But on the photo below is manicure with Lola after a week, that’s why it doesn’t look i’t best! It is with a top coat, since without it the nail polish doesn’t last for the whole week. But still impressive, right? There are very few nail polishes that last that well on me.
I love this nail polish so much that I would talk about it with everyone who would listen, ha!
- Look at that design! It’s the coolest nail polish bottle I’ve ever seen. When I saw the promo photos for the first time – I knew that it had to be mine.

Look what just landed in my inbox – gorgeous promo photos of Guerlain’s Summer 2014 makeup collection – Sun Celebration! I have already posted about this year’s Terracotta release, by the way, too.
This summer Guerlain Terracotta celebrates 30 years, so the brand brought out a drop-dead gorgeous Terracotta Sun Celebration Powder (£47 / €65). Seriously, how beautiful is that bronzer/blush wooden compact (it has a mirror, too) with flaming orange, burnished brown, sensual golden shimmer, sunset pink shades and a golden metallic sun in the centre?
Guerlain describe this fragrance as “The Allure of the Sun, in a Bottle”. Thierry Wasser interprets the legendary powder as a fragrance. It is “irresistibly sensual, exotic and luminous, inspired by the radiant realm of Terracotta.” The notes are: fresh bergamot, tiaré flower and ylang – ylang.
So what else is in the collection?
Rouge Automatique £25 / €34

I am a big fan of cleansing balms and melting cleansers mostly because they work great for my dry and sensitive skin, and also because I love to massage my face while using a cleanser.
It all started with Elemis Melting Cleansing Gel (review) back in 2011, and I never looked back! Over the years I have now tried quite a few, so decided to make a lill’ round-up. Maybe, if you are looking for such kind of cleanser, this will be helpful.
