Of all the widely distributed fragrance brands, Guerlain is my favourite. It’s obvious that it was started by a perfumer and not a fashion house that eventually launched a beauty line. Guerlain has 193 years of history and it shows. Their shop in Champs Élysées dates back to 1914 and it’s an ode to sensorial beauty that is, in my opinion, a what-to-see must in Paris.Continue reading “My Visit to the Guerlain Champs Élysées Flagship Store, a Must Do in Paris”

I’ve spent more on beauty during my honeymoon in Santorini than I’ve ever spent on any other trip. I had no idea that Greece had so many beauty brands! I knew about Korres and that was it. So when I went to a department store and saw so many greek makeup brands, I kind of lost it a bit. Like a kid at a candy store that is spending grandma’s money, because we all know mama won’t put up with it. I had to get myself out of there at some point because I was buying the entire store.Continue reading “Greek Beauty Haul | Seven7een, Radiant, Erre Due, Korres, Apivita, AK Makeup, Tommy G”
Do you remember this post? Yeah me neither.
In my defence, this is over 2 months’ worth of purchases. Since I’ve been
pretending trying to cut back on my makeup and skincare purchases, I’ve really gotten into haircare and fragrance. A ridiculous transition, I know, since I was trying to save on beauty spending, but alas, it still happened, and here we are.
This March I received my 12th LookFantastic beauty box. Since this beauty box has a subscription plan that goes up to 12 months, I wanted to make a retrospective analysis of what I have received over the past year, so in case anyone is considering that subscription they might more or less know what to expect.
Did I find any new holy grails? Was there a lot of brand repetition? How’s the proportion of skin care vs makeup? How many products were just crap? How many full sizes?
Look no further, here are the stats:Continue reading “1 Year of LookFantastic Beauty Boxes: Worth it or Wasteful?”
The Look Fantastic Easter collection will launch on March 8th, and it will be £65 for 6 products, or £55 for their beauty box subscribers.
Is the value really £230? I did the math. Here’s what it contains:Continue reading “Look Fantastic Easter Egg 2021 – Worth £220”
It finally got here!
In order to get the Cult Beauty Self Care goody bag I purchased the RIKI Skinny mirror (review coming soon). I have been lusting for a good makeup mirror that would mimic natural lighting and allow me to do my makeup well even at night, but those things are expensive. At £175, it was the perfect time to get it, because the Cult Beauty Goody Bag required a minimum spending of £170.
Here are my thoughts and opinions about the goody bag.Continue reading “Cult Beauty Self Care Goody Bag: Unboxing & Opinions”
I have to credit Lady Writes (on youtube) for this, as she was the first to post about this (that I saw) and warn that this limited edition beauty box will be available February 22nd. She did a whole unboxing, I suggest you watch her video. The page for purchasing the beauty box is already available on Look Fantastic’s website (here). The product appears as sold out but I believe it’s because it did not launch yet and will became available for sale next Monday.Continue reading “Look Fantastic Mother’s Day 2021 Beauty Box (worth £216)”
The Moschino Fall 2020/2021 collection was jaw dropping and mouth watering. A world where Marie Antoinette meets Barbie and God is a drag queen with a sweet tooth. Makes no sense? Sure. Sounds absolutely fabulous? Undoubtedly.
I’m so happy to have a piece of that cake in my closet.Continue reading “Shop & Tell: Moschino Pink Flower Pumps”
The first big goody bag from Cult Beauty is coming. I received an email today with the 24h priority access to it this goody bag (for being a frequent customer, I guess?).

Read ahead to see what comes in this goody bag.Continue reading “The Self Care Goody Bag from Cult Beauty (2021) – a 320£ Value”
