Here is a preview of the new makeup collection from Giorgio Armani - Orient Excess. And I personally really love the promo image. It is nice to see the accent on the lips (and a matching nail polish), with a very simple eye look, flawless skin and groomed eye brows. This is a cult classic, and doesn’t get better than this.
There are three matching products:
414 Red - Lip Maestro, Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick and Nail Lacquer
634 Burgundy - Lip Maestro, Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick and Nail Lacquer
The other products are:Read More
I was hoping that one day Sasha will bring out a book. And she did! Of course, I had to buy it…
Her first book (why, yes, I am hoping for more in the future) is about cooking and tips on preparing delicious, but not complicated meals and serving them (think throwing parties!).
She basically covers all main topics, as you can see from the contents below.
This book is a total joy to have. I love Sasha’s writing style, the photos are aesthetically pleasing, and you don’t need to go to Mars to find the ingredients.
Below you can see some examples of the dishesRead More
I have been very good with my beauty purchases lately, meaning that I’ve been buying only the products that I really want/need (I do have a wish list, and will probably share soon).
Instead, I have been investing in different beauty procedures and accessories & apparel/shoes. This week I have picked only two products, and I am very happy with both.
I went to Lush to pick a big bottle of Rose Jam shower gel which I adore (will get it later this week though), but got this amazing soap. Not only itRead More
Recently I have posted about the top three affordable new makeup launches that caught my attention. And Max Factor actually kindly sent me their new eye shadows to try out.
They have already made an appearance on my Instagram, and now it’s time for a detailed review.
And, let me tell you, these eye shadows are absolutely brilliant! I was a bit worried that with the name Excess Shimmer it could be an overkill (not a fan of too much glitter), but it is not – spot on, in fact!
The brand describes the texture as “3D silicone gel”, and it does feel like a light mousse-y gel texture (the only similar product that I have, is my favourite cream eye shadow by New CID) which is foolproof.
You can even use the product with your finger and gently blend all over the lid. The formula is pretty unique, you can sheer it out, or add layers for a more intense effect.
As for the look, yes it is quite shimmery, but it looks pretty! It never is flat, but instead, gives dimension, and reflects the light beautifully.
