Lipsticks in Red: Chanel, Dior, Guerlain and Lancome

I am the biggest fan of a red lipstick, and if there is anything better than a red [lipstick], that is one in a red packaging.  And it looks like it is a mini trend for the Autumn, and it is something  that has my 100% approval.

A photo of myself online, yeah, I know…

My partner and I just came back from the most incredible holiday in Cyprus last week, and I thought I’d share a few photos and some of our favourite  beauty/grooming products.

Probably the most used product was Clarins Sun Care Oil Spray [Clarins is available from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.] just like all the other Clarins for/after sun products. I was picturing the most beautiful photos I’d take for this feature but, unfortunately, we’ve been too busy  enjoying our vacation so I did not have time to do everything that I’ve wanted.

At least I’ve managed to  snap a few beautiful views of the island.

Chanel Makeup Collection for Spring 2018

Here is a preview of the Chanel’s makeup collection for Spring 2018 which was inspired by Lucia Pica’s hometown, Naples. And it is such a beautiful, colourful and uplifting collection for SS, think yellow, pink and teal.

OLES 9 OMBRES Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($70)

The star of the collection.  This palette was inspired by the frescoes of Pompeii and  is a combination of bold colours and neutral tones, with matte to satin powder finishes. The mattes are: peachy-pink, mink brown, and faded grey-green; satin-finish shades: turquoise blue-green, bright green, luminous peachy-beige, gold, dark rusty red-brown, and bronze grey-blue.

The other brand new products are the  POUDRE À LÈVRES Lip Balm And Powder Duo ($37). A colourful matte powder that can be worn alone or mixed with the moisturizing balm for a blurred, artistic effect on both cheeks and lips.
