Physical catalogs were basically eradicated with the rise of websites, stores are betting on e-commerce, and the concept of celebrities is changing with new forms of social media. The internet is the new electricity. It’s about time that fashion gets inspired by the digital world. Enter Coperni.Continue reading “Review | Coperni Mini Swipe Bag”
U Beauty’s philosophy revolves around streamlining and reducing the amount of skincare products one has to use day to day. It’s meant to reduce a 12 step routine into a 2 step one, I guess, because they only make 2 products for the face so far, and the price for both of those is enough to purchase a 12 step routine, two times over. At least.Continue reading “Brand Review | U Beauty (The Super Smart Hydrator, Resurfacing Compound)”

It’s been a while since I lasted posted about an outfit. Yes, this used to be a beauty and style blog. But the type of work I do can be done from home, and with the streets closed and the events cancelled, one can never find an occasion to strut their stuff – and I got a lot of new stuff to strut during the quarantine.Continue reading “A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Marchesa Notte”
Victoria Beckham’s makeup line is one of the few influencer/celebrity brands (those seem to be sprouting all the time now) that I was intrigued enough to try out. Look and selection wise, it’s a very grown-up, polished and sophisticated line. You can take the Spice out of the Girl, but you can’t take the Posh.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | Victoria Beckham Smoky Eye Brick in Tweed”
When preparing for this post, two things surprised me: there are more indie makeup brands than I thought and I have quite a lot of stuff from them; even indie brands discontinue products way too fast.Continue reading “Top 5 | Favourite Indie Makeup Products (2021)”
Every year, Clarins comes out with a limited edition bronzing compact for their summer collection. I haven’t tried any before, which is actually surprising because I’m a fan of Clarins face powders. 2021 was the year, I guess (and yes, we are all ignoring this was supposed to be a low buy year).Continue reading “Review, Swatches | Clarins Bronzing Compact Frozen Summer 2021 Collection”
Being a beauty box subscriber and a GWP enthusiast, I end up with a lot of masks. Mini masks, full size masks, sample masks, sheet masks. And sometimes I struggle to find enough to say to dedicate a full post to a singular mask. So it makes sense to me to group 5 masks of the same type for a quick round of short reviews.
The theme today are hydrating, calming face sheet masks, from 5 different brands.Continue reading “The Maskerade Ball | 5 Quick Reviews of… Sheet Masks!”
I had a Sephora birthday gift card that I could use on only one product worth 30€ or less, so I went online to check what was available for 29,90€. RMS is new to Portuguese Sephora stores and the Buriti bronzer caught my eye. It’s not a new product by any means, but for some reason it’s getting some attention lately from the beauty community. Perfect for my gift card. Only thing is I wouldn’t get free shipping because I didn’t reach the 50€ minimum purchase.
Two bronzers and a foundation later, an order was placed. And here’s the review for the Buriti Bronzer.Continue reading “Review, Swatches | RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer”
If I had to give this summer a signature lipstick colour, I would say a bright orange red. Summer makeup collections are typically filled with juicy corals and watermelon reds, but this year in particular a strong orange undertone seems to be dominating the lip scene. I’m all for it.Continue reading “Top 5 | Best Lipsticks for Summer 2021”
