Max Factor New Masterpiece Transform Mascara

I must confess I am a big fan of Max Factor mascara since years I have been using Max Factor False Lash Effect so I was more than excited to try the new Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara.
This is a mascara that first made its debut at the Victoria Beckham SS14 show , used by make up artist Path Mc Grath. On the models Path used it only on the roots to give extra definition to the lash line.

Victoria wanted the girls to stay looking very natural, almost as themselves but to enhance their beauty with simple touches of make-up. This included important details such as adding extra luminosity to the skin and subtly lifting the lashes – it’s all about natural glamour that’s so modern and relevant to today.” – Pat McGrath

Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara creates darker, bigger and dramatic lashes with just one stroke.
Thanks to its new instant impact wand, which holds product on the outside of the bristles immediately transferring it to the base of the lashes. The rows of rotating bristles ensure that lashes are brushed through and that every lash is captured and coated.
The creamy formula, gives really good volume without smudging or crumbling, lashes appear thicker and fuller.
It really transform lashes for an instant Wow effect!
Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara is available now.

Would you believe it is already 10 years since H&M first designer collaboration?

Ever since H&M started its first designer collaboration back in 2004 with Karl Lagerfeld I have always been waiting to know the announcement of who the next collaboration was going to be year after year with great excitement.. And let's say H&M never disappointed me, from Stella Mc Cartney to Versace, Cavalli, Lanvin or more recently Isabel Marant I always been waiting November each year with great excitement for the release of each collection. 
I have to confess I never missed one and I can count at least one item of each collections in my closet. I remember getting up at 4 o'clock in order to be first in the queue outside the store, the excitement of getting that item I had been dreaming about since the lookbook of each collections had been released and having to fight for that must-have item which everyone was ready to fight to have it! 
Memories, 10 years have gone by since the first H&M designer collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld and next week on November 6th 2014  10 years after it will Alexander's Wang turn..I am of course ready! You?

Alexander Wang for H&M preview !

On Tuesday night I had the oppurtunity to preview the highly awaited Alexander Wang for H&M collection. After the images I had seen of the launch in NYC last week I was really excited to see  the collection !
The location fitted the collection perfectly, at the Indigo Fitness Club in Zurich.. The collection is jam packed of technical pieces and the sport theme is predominant crop tops, leggins, hooded tops, mesh dresses, shorts and leather pieces are paired with cool beanies, back packs and boxing gloves.
All in the shades of black, grey and white. The sport theme continues also in the men collection with tank tops, shorts, sweatshirts and down coats.
The key pieces for me are the open-toe shoes, crop tops and leggings with the Wang logo and a few of the dresses..but I will do a separate post on it!
Let's just say the countdown to November 6th, releasead date of the collection, has started!
