One palette, one review, one tutorial | Nars Wanted Palette

Last week, I was telling you all about Nars’ latest foundation (here) and I promised that I would follow up with a post dedicated to their latest eyeshadow palette, the Wanted* palette.

If you want to know what I’m wearing on my face, all the steps for my base are in this post, but today I’m going to tell you about the eye makeup that I created with the new Nars Wanted palette. (more…)

Reading | Jonathan Safran Foer’s Here I Am

My new resolution of reading more (and telling you about the books I read) is going well, and since my last post, I’ve finished another two books, amongst which is Jonathan Safran Foer’s latest novel.

I picked up this book at the book store on a whim because I’ve already read some of his books and enjoyed them. This book is a big novel (570 pages) that’s called Here I Am. (more…)

I tried the new Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation | Base Makeup

After a little poll in my insta stories, it was clear that you guys wanted to know more about Nars latest foundation. Not that long ago, I was telling you all about Nars previous latest stick foundation (read more about it here) which I absolutely love. But now that there’s another one, let me tell you about it, and about the other base products I use alongside it.

This time this new foundation is a classic liquid foundation and is called Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation*, it comes in 33 shades and promises 16 hours of wear. (more…)

Mister tried | Lush Twilight Naked Shower Gel

This winter Lush launched a whole range of “Naked” products, that is, products without any packaging. Amongst these products without packaging there’s a solid shower gel. When you think about it, it doesn’t really sound possible, but in fact, it is !

Personally, I’m still trying to finish the many shower gels I’ve bought from Lush in the fear that they’d run out and I’d be unable to purchase them again (the limited editions such as Lord of Misrule, Rose Jam or Ponche) before they go bad, so Mister tried this new naked shower gel for us.

What I really like about these naked products is that some of them (the shower gels and body conditioners for instance) are shaped the exact same way as the original packaged products. That way you immediately know what they are. The one that Mister tried (and that I’ve tested a couple of times too) is clearly a purple shower gel bottle and it smells of lavender. It is Twilight*.

Reading | Naomi Alderman’s The Power

Today I want to launch a new category of posts on the blog, I want to talk about the books I’m reading. As I’m currently looking for a job that I’m not finding, I have a lot of time to read. But I don’t necessarily do it. I’ve therefore decided to spend more time with books, to read them, but also to share with you what I’ve read.

That’s not to say that we’re not going to talk about makeup anymore, obviously, but I want to talk about more things and share more with you, as I have already when I’ve posted about our flat, my travels or my recipes.

The book I want to talk about today is that last one I’ve read and is called The Power by Naomi Alderman. (more…)
