Ins and Outs. May 2011

A lot of readers tell me that they would like to know  more about myself  so I think it’s nice to make more personal (but not too personal) posts from time to time. So here are my Ins and Outs for this month.


Great Skin

My skin looks so much better now, it is not dry and irritated. There are a lot of factors to “blame” for it. I don’t suffer from insomnia these days, I try to eat at the same time, and I go for a walk every single day. The other reason is Elemis Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules, these are really pricey but I can definitely see an improvement in my skin condition.


Now everyday I take a walk before work as it takes me less than 40 minutes to get there.


I am loving everything turquoise and light blue right now which is not very original but I don’t really care.

Some of my nail polishes, eye liners and jewelery


I really love mixing my foundation with a bit of a darker foundation to make my complexion look healthy and not so pale.


I did a makeup on the most gorgeous woman… my Mum. She doesn’t wear makeup but she was going to an important event so she gave me a call and asked if I could do her makeup. Of course I said yes!

More Time

I’ve made a decision to spend less time on-line! And it’s so amazing! Now I have more time to do the things that I love doing:

Lancome 29 St Honore Makeup Collection for Fall 2011

Let’s take a look at another Fall 2011 makeup collection. This time it’s by Lancome and it is called 29, St.Honoré in honour of the Lancome’s boutique which is situated there.

I have to say that I like the red lips and nails and the cat eyes, such a classy makeup.

This collection was created by Aaron de May and he was obviously inspired by Paris  and Lancome’s boutique.

The star product of the collection is definitely a blush called Maison Lancome with pink and gold shades decorated with Eiffel’s Tower and a Lancome’s logo.

Three red lipsticks in Rouge 29, Rouge Saint-Honore and Rouge Faubourg.

The eye shadows  in 02 Blondette Fatale look very wearable and pretty.

There are  also two nail varnishes: the red one called 22 Rouge Saint-Honore and the black one called 23 Noir 29.

Plus a black Artliner which is not a new product.

Want It: High Voltage Cosmetics Norse Mythology Collection

I was reading the London Makeup Girl the other day and this post really caught my attention.  It is a review about the Armani eye shadow, but my the middle colour immediately  caught my attention.  When I saw the name of it which was High Voltage Cosmetics Loose Pigment in Freyr which was a part  of the Norse Mythology collection, I had to visit the brand’s website straight away.

To tell the truth, I’ve never heard of this brand before, but it is because I am not an expert in the niche brands like this one. But it looks like  I am missing out a lot. I think I should really find out more about High Voltage Cosmetics and similar brands in the future.

Odin, Black Base with a strong green-gold duochrome. Thorr, Grey base with a green-blue duochrome. Freyr, Smokey Purple with multi fascinated finish.

And do I need to tell you how happy I was to find out that they had the whole collection  dedicated to the Norse Mythology? Yes, I know that those are only names (and all of them are familiar to me) but I am still very excited.

You can check out the gorgeous Norse Mythology collection here. Each eye shadows is $6 and the sample is only
