MAC x STEVE J. & YONI P. Limited Edition Collection

MAC presents its latest collaboration this time with Korean design duo Steve J. and Yoni P. 
The collection is surely as cheeky and progressive as their fashion! The collection which manages to strike the right balance between flirty frills and sporty thrills include some neutral eyeshadows, lengthening mascara and lipsticks in pretty pink hues. The collection as a whole is really adorable and I am liking it very much! The packagins is playful, fun and very colourful and the cute makeup bag is just the perfect accessory for Summer  to have the pieces from the collection handy.
The limited edition collection has a lot of pink, the colour of the season and it is seen not only in the packaging but also in the four lipsticks : Spotlight Me ( a light peachy nude), A Killing Smile ( a pinky red matte),  Yoni Crush ( a bold orange red) and Candy Yum Yum ( a neon pink).
Pink is also the main actor in the Lip & Cheek Palette x 6 Yoni Attraction and in the two Powder Blushes Peony Petal and Sugar or Syrup. The collection also offers a rich black Zoom Lash Mascara and two Eyeshadows Duo Midnight Fever with glittery black and purple hues and Touch Me Baby with gold and pink hues. There is also a MAC Studio Eye Gloss  in a pearl white gloss to add some sparkle to your eye look. The cheeky makeup bag and and two brushes completes this cheeky limited edition collection.

To us, MAC is synonymous with Yoni’s signature black eyeliner, so we wanted to base the packaging design on her iconic look. 
The graphics of the components and makeup bag speak articulately to the existing street style in Seoul. 
M∙A∙C helped us to echo our own character and lifestyle to develop the mood of our products and product selection. 
With pinks and peach shades for the lips and cheek, we went a little smokier to complete the eye, balancing a feminine vibe mixed with sporty hints.

Roger & Gallet x Thierry Boutemy

This summer Roger & Gallet has asked the master of floral art Thierry Boutemy to create five floral compositions and some limited edition gifts with the summer fragrances as inspirations with the theme of a summer walk through a flowered garden.
Thierry Boutemy is surely a fan of Roger & Gallet as when he was 10 years old his cousin gave him a round Roger & Gallet  soap bar as a gift. He didn't use it as he thought it was too precious but he used to go and inhale the wonderful fragrance of the soap. For this reason Roger & Gallet always evokes him this wonderful childood memories of the flowers of Normandy.
This summer Thierry Boutemy has created floral compositions for the Roger & Gallet Eau Parfumées  such as Fleur de Figuier, Rose, Gingembre Rouge, Fleur d'Osmanthus and the brand new limited edition Ylang.
Thierry Boutemy created a floral composition also for the brand new limited edition Eau Fraîche Parfumée Ylang. 
Ylang is a fragrance that takes us to a journey to the Caribbean. The sensuality of Ylang paired with Moorea flowers notes gives our body the sensation of the warm sun and sand making us feeling relaxed and happy.
Perfumer Dorothée Piot has created the Eau Fraîche Parfumée Ylang with floral white notes and sparkling citrus revealing the distilled essence of ylang and cedar all warmed by musk and vanilla for a fragrance that is joyful, refreshing and perfect for Summer!
The fragrance is already one of my summer must-haves! It is a light, flowery and fruity fragrance great for warm days. As a fan of the Roger & Gallet Eau Fraîches I can really say I have a new favourite! 
Thierry Boutemy has also created a summer hit bag with an explosion of flowers and colours which adorn also the travel sets which you can get as a gift when you buy any of the Eau Parfumée.

SUNISSIME by LIERAC gives you effective sun protection combined with anti-age care

Time to talk about sun care, I recently went on holiday to Dubai and had the oppurtunity to test the new LIERAC sun products. The new sun innovations from LIERAC use the knowledge of LUMINOTHERAPY for its new sun care line SUNISSIME. The smart and efficient combination of protection and vitalizing anti-aging care is especially suited for women over 30 years of age.
Lierac sun products not only give effective sun protection, but also provide efficient care, supple textures with a pleasant scent and an ensure for an uniform tan. The new product innovations from the line SUNISSIME of LIERAC really satisify all wishes.
Sun can harm skin without an adequate protection which can then cause and promote light skin aging damages from visible light, infrared, UVB, short-term and long-wave UVA rays. At the same time light is an important energy source for humans.
Light not only regulates the sleep rhythm, it also strengthens the immune system and promotes serotonin production- and thus also good mood and well-being. In addition, it also stimulates blood circulation, improves nutrient and oxygen supply and thus ensures better skin quality and vitality.
With its Sunissime sun care line LIERAC and its state-of-the-art research can bring this truly innovative sun protection which combines effective protection and anti-age care inspired by light therapy.

Sun exposure affects the skin. With the new sun care line SUNISSIME by LIERAC this does not have to come between you and a healthy tan. The broadband filter with botanical Flavonoids (infrared), a patented filter system (UVA / UVB) and fragmented Melanin (long-wave UVA) protects skin safely against skin damage, wrinkles and dark spots.
The active textures with sun-fresh fragrances of coconut water, bergamot and jasmine blossom not only leave a gorgeous scent on skin but also  provide for instant protection for the skin barrier and convince with an invisible finish that is not greasy or sticky.
LIERAC also offers some great Après-Soleil care, and I loved the SOS serum, a repairing moisture balm for the face and the repairing Moisturizing milk for the body.
The combination of anti-aging effect, soothing complex and refreshing textures have made them two must-haves products in my summer beauty bag! Thanks to Avocado & Omega 3 they soothe and regenerate the skin while Hyaluronic acid give intensive moisture. A tanning activating agent peptide  also extends the tan. The new cryo-effect technology also give you an instant feeling of freshness.

Clinique new Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

If you haven't yet discovered Clinique's new Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate you are really missing out.. or I would better say your skin is really missing out as in only a little time this wonder product has become a favourite of mine. I think this is really set to become a cult product.
It is a super-moisturizing water-gel concentrate that really gives skin a hydration boost and also increases its natural reservoir and keeps the level of hydration constant for up to 24 hours. 
It is very lightweight therefore making it perfect for this Season, it is oil-free and also fragrance-free.
I recently travelled to Dubai and the Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate has been my to-go product!
On my long-haul flight I have used it to give my skin the hydration back that my skin had lost during the flight. I made it part also of my post-workout beauty routine as my skin gets thirsty, too and this way I can re-hydrate my skin in a flash.
I also loved it after sunbathing to quenche sun-exposed skin without feeling greasy or shiny.
The results are visible as complexion is fresher, brighter and perfectly hydrated.
Time to supercharge your moisture!

My Dubai Looks part two!

Here I am with my second look from my Dubai getaway. I am wearing another H&M look with this palazzo pants and matching top. The ensemble is light and airy look which is perfect for hot Summer days! Here I am wearing the full look but you could also mix and match the two items with a plain top or some khaki shorts. I think both items are really wearable, the look is as perfect pool side as it would be for a fancy dinner. I think it all comes down on which accessories you go for as in this case they can really change your look! Here I am wearing some trendy golden flat mules from H&M paired with a straw yellow clutch also from H&M. I kept jewellery to a minimum  with my Michael Kors watch an a bracelet from Les Georgettes current collection. It paires well with my clutch and gives the look a chic finishing touch!
