Lazy Sunday

I didn't have time for a new make up post, so I thought I just share you the cutest pet video ever - starring my two darlings. That is true love!

They are soo adorable. Today's weather is rather dull, but a few days ago the sunlight turned the fields into the most beautiful scenery.






I hope you have a lovely Sunday and didn't forget to adjust the clocks. Let's gather some strength for the new week.

Love,
Valerie

Sothys One Night in Paris


A little while back I had the pleasure to get the Fall/Winter collection from Sothys and now I have finally time to review and share the products with you. :)

It's one hell of a classy collection. Look at those pretty things and the lovely packaging - velvet!



Let's take a closer look..


two nail polishes in rouge nuit and beige-doux

Here come the shadows!


reflect nocturne


taupe-intemporel


A beautiful blush - nuit orangée


the shimmer powder "poussière d'or" in the most beautiful packaging


two cute lipsticks in beige and orange



It's swatch-time!

eyeshadows "taupe-intemporel" and "reflect nocturne"


blush "nuit orangée" and lipsticks "orange", "beige"



in sunlight:


All the products have great colour payoff and the lipsticks have a nice scent without being overpowering. It's an awesome collection thoroughly.

I also did a look with the collection. Perfect for fall..



The lipstick is a mix between the two colours. I love it.


The limited edition is available in spas and beauty institutes. You can find out where to get it at www.sothys.com

Have you already made peace with Fall? I still feel a bit annoyed by it. *gg*  The lovely weather is a good consolation though:


Love,

My awesome London Haul!

This is way overdue, but here's my London haul. The time to be jealous would be now. ;-)

Real Technique brushes - Nic's Picks are especially cool. I got it thanks to pre-ordering. I didn't see that set in stores once.


Revolution Iconic palettes. I stood ages in front of their display. I could have bought all palettes. 



Iconic 2


Iconic 3


Sleeeeek palettes:


Arabian Nights


Garden of Eden


GOSH New York palette




Beautiful lashes, an incredible long lasting eyeshadow pencil from Collection and an I love Make Up blush.


Last but not least the gorgeous Illamasqua polish from their Once collection.



What do you think? Awesome haul isn't it? I'm really happy with those products. Reviews will follow. :)

Love,
Valerie

The Body Shop Nail Polishes


I'm sure some of you have seen them already, but The Body Shop released nail polishes! The had polishes quite a while back, but that was years ago.

I couldn't wait to check them out and I gotta say I am impressed!! They released a lot of shades and the ones I tried in the store had a great formula and were almost opaque after a coat.




They also released a nail polish remover which smells divine. I love it.



Since I'm on a budget I couldn't take anything home with me, but that's only a matter of time. *gg*

You should definitely check them out, if you're curious - here's the price list.


Did you see them? Probably got some already? What do you think??

Love,
Valerie

GOSH Fall/Winter Novelties

Hey guys,

I've been really busy, sorry for the lack of posts. Two weeks ago I had the incredible pleasure to attend the GOSH event to see their Fall and Winter collections and novelties.

I have some sort of special relationship with GOSH. GOSH was one of those brands which were only available in the UK for ages and even though we now have it in Austria it's still something special. :)

Enough talk! Let's take a look.


New Lip Laquers with a freaking awesome colour pay-off




New lovely lipstick colours



They created a powder which can be used as primer and setting powder and three mineral powders. Haven't tried them so far though. I'm more of a liquid primer/foundation girl, but I'll review them soon!



They also had their relatively new eyeshadow pencils which I already reviewed. You can see swatches and everything here.




A lot of new and promising products. :)

Have you tried any of those novelties? I'm gonna post reviews and looks soon.

Love,
Valerie
