Hello beauties!

Last month I had the pleasure of discovering Oh K Masks and I took you with me at the event by posting live on Instagram!  Oh K released its first face mask in 2016 and ever since they’ve seen the craze for the masks completely explode. According to Google’s Beauty Trends 2017 report, face masks are the biggest global skincare trend of the year so far. When it comes to masking and skincare Korea beauty is leading the way with boundary breaking formulas and innovative packaging.

Dior Platine Fusion Metalizer Eyes & Lips Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Dior Platine Fusion Metalizer Eyes & Lips is one of the six shades launched as part as Dior Metallics Fall 2017 Collection. A few days after I blogged the collection I went to Dior boutique only to discover it arrived a bit early that I was expected. You can check out swatches for the rest of Dior Metalizer Eyes & Lips on my Instagram. That day I showed you live swatches Insta stories so if you are following me, you know I’m constantly posting sneak peeks. Not all Dior Metalizer Eyes & Lips shades look that great on the lips as they look on the eyes. I tended to get the purple shade as well, but I was advised not to, if I wanted it for the lips.

Where to buy:

U.S. – Now Dillards, Nordstrom, Saks, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus

UK – Now Debenhams, Harrods

Dior Platine Fusion (528) Metalizer Eyes & Lips (£17.00/ $25.00 for 8 ml / 0.27 fl oz) is light-medium, rosy-peachy bronze with a silver sheen and a high metallic shine. This color is so vibrant, rich and pigmented that just made me fall in love with it from the first swatch. It’s so luminous and reflects the light beautifully. Continue Reading

Huda Beauty Solstice Summer Highlighter Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello lovelies!

After playing with my new Huda Beauty Solstice Summer Highlighter Palette for the past week, I’m ready for the review. I’ve become addicted to Huda’s products lately, so I’m not afraid to admit it. Everything began with the Rose Gold Palette (upcoming review) and continued slowly but surely with a couple of Liquid Matte Lipstick and Lip Strobe shades. Once I heard about the launching of Huda Beauty Solstice Summer 2017 Collection (swatches) I knew I was going to get it.

The new highlighter palette features four shades, just the like the previous releases and with the same texture. So if you are familiar with Huda’s highlighter palettes, buying the new Huda Beauty Solstice Summer Highlighter Palette is just a matter of taste. This is my first highlighter palette from her, but I did swatch the previous two variations in the store before getting this one.

Huda Beauty Bikini Babe, Jetsetter Liquid Matte Lipsticks Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I’ve been so excited for Huda Beauty Summer 2017 Solstice Collection (swatches, photos) that I got on the waiting list as soon as I could. Huda Beauty Bikini Babe and Jetsetter Liquid Matte Lipsticks are the two shades that I got from this collection. There are 4 colors available but the others are too coraly for me. I’ve been dreaming of getting Huda Beauty products for such a long time and since I came to London I can stop buying her products.

I basically feel that most of the shades are screaming my name and want to come home with me. Needless to say, I can’t wait for the upcoming launch of Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Palette on 18 September. I’ll be on vacation then, but I arranged with a friend to pick it up for me (I already reserved the palette). I also bought Huda Beauty Solstice Highlighter Palette and posted swatches on Instagram so I’ll be reviewing it next.

UK – Now at Selfrdiges, Harrods, CultBeauty

Dior Rouge Dior Hypnotic Matte Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I was so excited to see the new Dior Metallics Fall 2017 Collection in person that I couldn’t leave Dior boutique without buying something. Dior Rouge Dior Hypnotic Matte is one of the six Dior lipsticks (swatches) featured in this collection. I absolutely fell in love with the color at first swatch even though I promised myself no more nudes. I went home and put it on my lips straight away. I used it a couple of times ever since and I still have it on y lips as I’m writing this review.

Where to buy:

U.S. – Now at Nordstrom, Sephora

UK – Now at Selfridges, Harrods, Dior boutique in Covent Garden (London)

Dior Rouge Dior (481) Hypnotic Matte Couture Colour Lipstick ($35.00 / £27.50 for 3.5 g / 0.12 oz) is officially described as a a fervent rosewood. I see it as a medium rosy-brown with a soft semi-matte finish. It has a great pigmentation, being a rich and intense color. It’s opaque on the lips but I won’t say the finish is super matte. On my lips it tends to settle more to a semi-matte finish rather than a truly matte one which I absolutely like. Continue Reading
