Bobbi Brown Caviar & Oyster Official Photos

I was browsing through Bobbi Brown’s website yesterday and I thought I’d share with you a new collection called Caviar & Oyster. I rarely  NEED eye palettes but for some reason, be it the texture implying names maybe, I totally need these. These are just too pretty. Take a look for yourself :

 

 

 

How can’t you just love them? Caviar and Oyster Palette seems to be my fave. All pictures taken from Bobbi Brown’s Official website. It has come to my attention that here in Greece, Bobbi Brown is available at the Golden Hall Mall Athens and in Hondos Center Stores in Glyfada and Kifissia. If you have any different info please leave a comment before I check for myself!

There goes another wishlist post! Till next time,

Topshop J.W Anderson Collaboration

Another fantastic collab for topshop with London’s top designer Jonathan Anderson is now available! the only thing I hate about Topshop designer Collaboration.. They are out of stock in a flash. Now, some eye candy for you ladies and gents :

Oh how I adore mixed prints and textures. Literally makes me happy to see a collection like this. Paisley + Tartan + stripes = perfection. Here are some picks of mine from the topshop website :

What do you think about this collection? Will you pass or hunt ? I am definitely gonna get myself some key pieces (like the paisley skirt – I mean LOVE). Anyway kee in mind you have to hurry, everything is very soon going to be out of stock.

Thanks for reading,

Till next time XO Danielle

September Key Buys

Each September I like to renew my winter wardrobe with some new key pieces. Here is what I am getting me this year:

Parka: Never owned one, it’s time I do. I love this one from Topshop, fur lined, warm and cozy!

Statement rings : I do own a billion rings or so, but armor rings are a must accessory for fall if you ask me!

Vampy lips: I have spotted a few I am going to buy, check MAC’s yung rapunxel (limited) and cyber (permanent). Also the new Lancome rouge in love boudoir collection is worth mentioning.

Nail polish: Expect for all the fall collections I have already bought, this duo from Dior gives you a snake like design. Gotta love the Khaki Crackle.

More Martens! : Yay! My most worn shoes. Just love them. I need a pair in navy blue to complete my collection..

Autumn Shorts : Studded and super short! Pair with opaque black tights and voila!

Product hall of fame #1

So I thought I’d start a product hall of fame series featuring my absolute favorite products which I keep buying and buying and buying…

As far as skincare is concerned I am very picky, I have combination super sensitive skin so a few products make the hall of fame lists. If I had to choose a skincare brand to stick with for the rest of my life it would be Darphin. You can find Darphin products in almost all big well stocked pharmacies in Greece.

Absolute favorite : Darphin Purifying Balm

 

For me this is the only night skin product I need. It is as the name implies a balm, lovely night time texture, which smells of citrus, a little bit of orange and FRESHNESS. My skin feels so clean and fresh after applying it. Although it is a balm and I usually hate oily thick products you don’t even notice the oiliness during the night. No stains, no oily spots in pillows. And it smells heavenly. Did I just say that?

Anyway, after using it for a week every night I really noticed a difference in my skin. It just wouldn’t break out and it felt moisturized all day long. It did wonders for my enlarged pores and redness. Currently, I am about to buy my 3rd one and in the long run it is even more beneficial. This is my holy grail of night skincare.

The only con: the price. It is 50 euros for 15 ml but for me it’s totally worth it, considering it has replaced my serum – cream layering skincare routine. Also it lasts for a loooong time. You only need a tiny amount of product for yur entire face – you can easily go by one 15ml bottle for 1,5 month.

So that was it, stay tuned for more favorite product reviews!

Back 2 School

It’s back to school/university/college/whatever time ! Hope you went all extravagant this summer and you are now ready to set to a more comfortable simple chic wardrobe. Most mornings, I am glad I wore something other than my PJs. Zero glam. Oh I do apply sunscreen. That’s about it. I might not be a role model as far as school/college fashion is concerned but I do give tips – for free!  Here are some items you NEED as presented above! ta dah!

BB Cream: Sheer coverage when you just can’t handle makeup with added skincare and sunscreen benefits! It has totally replaced makeup for me.

Cute nails : I love a good sheer nail. Essie ballet slippers is a must have office friendly classic. Natural yet polished look!

The pastel pant : As seen from topshop.com a pastel pant is an absolute mix & match piece. Wear it with black & cream accessories just to break the cuteness (preferably studs).

All stars: We all have a pair or two. Classic. Colour of the moment : Grey or beige.

The natural lipstick : Try MAC’s new cremesheen & pearl collection lipsticks. Chic, natural with added shine & glitz.

The hoodie : At the moment I am ADDICTED to Victoria Secret’s new campus collection. Oh these ever so pretty and comfortable loungewear!

The kohl : All you need is more kohl lined eyes – smoke them as much as you can handle!

My current MAC Wishlist

Oh MAC! Why do you releash 120 collections each fall? How can I keep up with that! Well, I can’t keep up so here are my picks based on swatches I have seen on temptalia.com :

Yung Rapunxel lipstick , Azaelia Banks collaboration : A deep plum, perfect for fall. Not that opaque as I’ve been noticing in swatches, but it is a plum. And I just have to have it.

MAC Office hours collection lipglasses : I am not usually into MAC lipglasses but these colors are wearable and perfect for every day use.

Next, we have blushes. Oh blushes. I haven’t bought any for a while.

MAC Office Hours collection blushes :

Whole Lotta Love

Subborn

Stay by me

That’s my wishlist this far, I’ve tried my best to narrow it down! Hope you like my picks and don’t forget to make a comment on your wishlist!

Skyfall Information

In celebration to the new James Bond movie “Skyfall” OPI launches a 12 piece holiday collection with polishes named after James Bond movies. I’m not that excited about 007 movies, but when it comes to polishes – Oh yeah! These photos are taken from qtplace.com as I was not able to find official information just yet. Check this blog for names and more photos !

I have to say I have never been so excited about a collection in a long time. Check some nail swatches here : http://polishinfatuated.blogspot.gr/2012/08/swatches-review-opi-skyfall-collection.html

http://www.2luxury2.com/18-karat-gold-polish-for-james-bond-golden-anniversary/opi-skyfall-james-bond-007-collection/

Also, with this collection we have a ture 18 karat gold leaf top coat, which allegedly retails for 30 $.  Photo from qtplace.com as well, check it for more information !

Would you spend 30$ on a top coat? Well I don’t know yet. I’ve spent 30$ before on Chanel polish but as I always do, I’ll be waiting for a sweet priced dupe so I won’t regret it later.

I hope you are as excited as I am,

Rainbow Jelly

This is my first attempt at a glitter jelly sandwich manicure and guess what – I loved it. I am using OPI – Rainbow Connection (glitter) and a sheer pinkinsh beige OPI polish which was unlabeled but my guess would be Bubble Bath. Enjoy!

It goes like this : 1 coat sheer pink + 1 coat glitter + 1 coat sheer pink + topcoat

Excuse the cuticle bleed, I hope it doesn’t annoy you as much as it annoys me !

Till next time,

XO Danielle
