MAC: Giambattista Valli

Hi genies
Uuuuhh keep your eyes peeled for these goodies hitting the shops…The collection of lipsticks created in cooperation between MAC and designer Giambattista Valli will be available from July 9th. The shades are inspired by garden flowers – reds, pinks and corals. What’s not to like?!

Each color represents pieces of fabric from my dresses, and each is inspired by florals and the beauty of a woman.

Winter Blues Inspiration

Hi genies
Are you feeling the winter blues already? If so, try to take a moment and contemplate how beautiful the winter can be, despite the freezing cold air outside 🙂 And who knows, maybe it can even inspire you to change up your makeup a little…

Nails: Green Genie

Hi genies

Green Genie - Alessandro

Green Genie – Alessandro

I love this nail polish for the winter months and not just because of the name hehe. It’s a nice deep green colour that very fittingly is called Green Genie by Alessandro. 🙂

(P.S. is it just me or does my hand always look super weird in these pictures?? 🙂 )

Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Tint-In-Oil

Hi genies
Yves Saint Laurent have come out with some new lip goodies! Check out these gorgeous shades:
Aaand here is what has to say about them:

What it is:
A revolutionary lip color with a lip tint suspended in a deep conditioning oil.
What it does:
Coat your lips with this lip tint for a lightweight texture that instantly melts onto lips. It is infused with a blend of four essential oils for deep hydration: apricot kernel oil, coriander fruit oil, jojoba seed oil, and possiflora edulis seed oil. Its exclusive applicator envelops the lips in full color and allows for a precise and uniform application. Lightweight and non-sticky, this lip tint offers a new and luminous shine while the tint effect enhances the natural beauty of the lips—making it the perfect combination for youthful looking lips.

I for one am definitely excited for these! What about you? Unfortunately, as it is a YSL product, they are quite pricey – 32$ for one.

Make Up Artist: Linda Hallberg

Hi genies
Today I came across a Swedish makeup artist Linda Hallberg‘s blog and OH.MY.GOD.! Her makeup looks are absolutely gorgeous and her application is flawless. Just take a little look:

Amazing! I will definitely head back over to her blog when I need some inspiration 😉

Online Treasure Hunting

Hi genies
One of my favourite things to do when I’m bored is to go online and have a little look around some online shops and get inspired! So here are a few things that I found during my “snoop” that I wouldn’t mind owning 😉

Fall Beauty

Hi genies
It’s that time of the year again…summer is over and the days are slowly getting colder, darker and grey…but fear not! At the same time, you can finally whip out those gorgeous berry and plum shades that have been slumbering in your makeup cabinet over the summer.



If that’s not inspiration enough to get excited and embrace autumn, then I don’t know what is! 😉

Miss Minty

Hi genies

I’ve just painted my nails this minty green colour called Miss Minty by Gosh and I really like it! It needed two coats to be this opaque and the only thing I don’t like about this product is the tiny little flimsy brush that it comes with. But you know, it works, so it’s all good 🙂

xx love

Sparkle On!

Hi genies
Nail Polish: Tart Deco
Glitter Polish: A Cut Above

That’s what my nails look like at the moment. I went for a nice coral colour and a little bling bling now that it’s summer 😉 Both nail polishes are from Essie.
