Charlotte Tilbury & Norman Parkinson Collections – Review of my picks

This must have been, by far, the most exciting and highly anticipated makeup collection of this year so far. Some faithful Charlotte Tilbury fans, myself included, were ready to click these ‘Buy’ buttons as soon as the collection became available early June this year…

So let’s talk packaging, shall we? Yes I know, that is not why you’re supposed to buy makeup, but in this case, hell yeah it is!! This is a piece of history, iconic images that come from Norman Parkinson’s archive and were featured on the cover of Vogue back in the 70s.

Tom Ford Bronzer Review

Tom Ford Bronzers, Terra & Gold Dust

My bronzer addicted self could not have possibly missed the opportunity to add these beauties to my collection!!

Both bronzers are part of  the Tom Ford permanent collection, but as part of summer release, they have now been dressed in white and gold packaging as opposed to standard mahogany. They also come wrapped in white velvet pouch…

These sleek, very sophisticated yet very simple white cases won me over eventually. I much prefer them in this light, summery version. It will surely add a touch of luxury to any vanity table or makeup collection.

Rimmel Nude Lipsticks - Kate-Moss Collection

Rimmel goes all nude this summer

I haven’t been so excited about a new lipstick launch for a while now and the fact it is a nude collection sealed the deal for me.

Although I like to play with colour when makeup is concerned, including lips, I feel most comfortable on a daily basis wearing a nude lip. It allows me to put a slightly heavier accent on my eyes and it is just more practical, easy to reapply during the day, or on the go.

Dior Sunwashed 319 Nail Polish Review

Dior Sunwashed – Perfect Holiday Nail Polish

I may not be the person who creates artwork on my nails, I wish I could, don’t get me wrong, but I am just simply rubbish at it. Having said that, I love nail polish and I make it a point to apply a new fresh layer of polish on a weekly basis…

I appreciate formulas that last without major chipping for at least 4+ days as I only do my manicure once per week. It’s just the way it is. When I saw the colour of Dior Sunwashed 319, I was immediately drawn to it. Surprisingly, not only me, as I have been asked numerous times about what is on my nails. Although so light in colour, it catches the attention.

Deborah Lippmann Calypso Collection

Deborah Lippmann – Calypso Nail Polish Collection

Nail polish colour is definitely a seasonal choice for me.  There are those perfect ‘all year round’ colours of course, like classic red or impeccable black that will never depend on season, but some just simply scream summer, holiday, party, beach, barbecue and are best paired with summer dress or shorts than winter coat.

This little set is just that. It comes with two polishes, with cute, summery names. Flowers In Her Hair, is a pastel aqua green and Mermaid’s Dream is the darker green shade with some blue and gold sheeny particles. It’s not shimmer, so not one of those, ‘in your face’ polishes dedicated for a night out, no. This is a very subtle sheen which looks lovely and just right to make it an every day polish.

Jo Malone Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne

Jo Malone Scents

I knew I wanted to review a Jo Malone scent, but wasn’t quite sure which one to go for. As I have 3 of them so far, I thought I would dedicate this post to all three of them, because why not…

I know scents are very personal, not to mention very difficult to describe and review for that matter. I have gone though a number of various perfumes in my time. Some of them were one-off purchases, others, I keep coming back to time and time again.
