The 7-Coloured Powder Illuminator by Shiseido is a blush, a highlighter and a contouring palette all
in one -and look how pretty it is ?
The new Line Interception Duo by La Prairie is a miracle in a box: a Day & Night Cream Duo which
offers a botox effect in just two weeks and that -trust me- worth all its money.
And here’s a Gucci touch: The new Gucci Guilty Absolute perfume might be a men’s perfume but it includes a whimsical cocktail of all my favourite notes such as Leatherwood, Vetiver and Patchouli
so appealing I instantly fell for it.
The last couple of weeks have been hectic but hey, I got to visit so many places, attended quite a few launches and tried new products. Below you’ll find all my picks for the festive season and the new year,
that will brighten your days to follow.
Golden Krocus Elixir is made of what is considered to be the gold of greek land, the flowers of Krocus of northern Greece. Known for its antioxidant characteristics, Krocus extract
works like magic in this elixir which reforms the skin within 3 weeks.
Molton Brown present for Christmas “Fabled juniper berries and lapp pine” a limited edition series inspired by the arctic landscape of Laponia.
You can choose among the pendant, earrings or bracelets of “Kalypso” lucky charms of Zolotas, which bring in mind the myth of the nymph and Odysseus.
Urban Decay arrived in Greece! The Nude3 is the new palette of their best-seller eyeshadows -just look at those colours!- while the must-haves in my opinion are the Eyeshadow Primer Potion and the Setting Spray, that keeps your make up untouched up to 12 hours (!).
Fuchsia matte lipstick “Menace”. Waterproof eye pencil “Psychedelic Sister”.
The entire Winter collection of Essie has everything, from bloody red to sparkling gold. Kiehls iconic creme de corps in a limited edition packaging designed by Brooklyn-based artist Jeremyville.
Must haves: Shiseido “Synchro Skin” liquid foundation with SPF 20 and Rouge Rouge lipstick RD310 “Burning up”.
“Meli-Melo” Shimmer Brick Compact, Smokey eye mascara and Retouching Face pencil by the first Bobbi Brown boutique at Glyfada.
The latest Korres “20 eau de parfum” is an ode to the eternal flower, rose, celebrating 20 years of the brand.
Last but not least, the bangle charm for 2017 by Yannis Sergakis
and the tear of joy drop necklace of Katerina Ioannidis.
How many are “too many” photos of a dress? Apparently not enough. The well-buried romantic part of me stylewise arose through its ashes with the ruffles and the open back of this We Are Monochrome maxi dress.
Αvailable at We Create Harmony eshop.
On the lips Twist Matte lipstick in Fuschia by Korres. Nail lacquer “Bitter Buddhist” by Smith & Cult.
Parthenis and Korres, two brand names that have become something of an ambassador for Greece with their work all those years, have joined forces for a limited edition travel bag, which includes the iconic Parthenis beach towel
-I bought a couple of them 10 years ago and still look and feel like new-
and all the necessary travel size Korres products.
In the same bag I will add my Madame Shoushou swimsuit and Korres Coconut Guava anti-aging body oil
and I’ll be so weekend ready.
Coffee, self pampering and a fine read. Spending some quality time by myself. “Haute-a-porter” the book from the current exhibition at Modemuseum Hasselt and Jasmine Anti-aging body oil by Korres, a new arrival that improves skin’s elasticity with nourishing and anti-oxidant properties
to help fight premature skin-ageing.
The ultimate festive beauty look has the signature of Yves-Saint Laurent and is all about metallics. The Couture eyeshadow Palette consists of base, highlighter and three earthy colours, while the Couture Kajal eye pencilcan be worn as kohl, eyeliner or even eyeshadow. Extra sparkling bonus the Couture Metal Manicure case of 16 nail art stickers for a fabulous Xmas nailjob.
The look is also known as the Black Opium look.
