Bling: Top AW17 Festive Highlighters

Festive season means gorgeous and luxurious highlighters which come in gold and silver packaging. I have selected 5 which, in my opinion, will make any girl happy, beauty present-wise.

Christmas Gift Guide: More Candles

I have already posted about Jo Malone, Diptyque and Malin + Goetz candles sets, and here are more sets worth our attention.

SKANDINAVISK Jul candle set, £55 from Selfridges

These look absolutely incredible, and who would say no to the Scandinavian vibe?  You get four 55 g candles. I need.

October 2017 Beauty Favourites

I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.

Givechy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara in Deep Black (from  Neiman MarcusBarneysHarrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom)

I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d  say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.
