What a gorgeous bottle right?! A new lighter version of the Eau de parfum.

The fragrance is announced as a "plumetes" version of the original, light and airy. "Plummets", drawing meaning from the French word for feather, is a fine and lightweight fabric woven with dots or figures on a plain background, having a feather or embroidered effect.

Mon Paris Eau de Toilette retains the "white chypre" olfactory signature of the original. Intoxicating datura flower that ruled the EDP edition becomes more airy in the new version, with its top notes mixing bergamot, blackberry, raspberry and pink pepper. The floral heart includes notes of datura, white peony, sambac jasmine and orange blossom. The base consists of patchouli from Guatemala, synthetic cashmere, ambrox and white musk. Like the original, the Eau de Toilette is also developed by the perfume trio of Olivier Cresp, Harry Fremont and Dora Baghriche-Arnaud.

The bottle retains its design of multi-faceted massive glass enhanced by a lavallière with a plumetes finish, knotted at the top. The ribbon is softer, designed from a fishnet mesh. The fragrance is available as a 30, 50 and 90 ml Eau de Toilette

As you all know, I love French Farmacie skincare. So I went mad restocking my favorites. Some of them I've bought double. Caudalie, Bioderma, Decléor, Embryolisse and Nuxe.
It was the most crowded but cheapest one in town: CityPharma.

Comfortabel chic!

It's jut gorgeous.... The new Les Beiges from Chanel.
I loved the normal edition from a few years ago. Always when I wear it people complimenting me from my "glow". So it's worth the money!


A powder bronzer and highlighter enriched with illuminating pigments. This buildable, soft-texture LES BEIGES formula leaves the complexion with the ultimate sun-kissed radiance. In five subtly iridescent, versatile shades.


Pearlescent and mineral pigments softly illuminate the complexion, while Kalanchoe Extract helps to protect skin against environmental stress.


To bronze: With a shade that’s darker than your skin tone, sweep powder all over for a luminous glow. For an extra beachy look, apply after setting with LES BEIGES Healthy Glow Luminous Colour.

Summer is coming and I always get so excited! Not only because of the sun, the icecreams, wearing dresses, swimming in the sea and all that other fun stuff. But because of the new gorgeous beauty items that will be launched.
Lets start with this cute new bikini bottom I've bought at Primark. So cute and fun with the print all over it. The second item I would like to mention is the Hourglass Radiant Bronze Light Ambient.The gorgeous shimmer that is in here is perfect for the summer. For the fragrance I would like you to meet the Melvita "L'Or bio eau the toilette. Not new but definitely one of their best-sellers. It reminds me of summer and the beach. The fragrance is composed of five different oils: Argan, Inca Inchi, Kendi, Buriti and Paraxi. A brand that is totally new to me is Valmont. Famous for their Prime Renweing Pack. There will be a blogpost devoted about this product. To protect the skin (face) against sun damage I use the Filorga UV bronze SPF 50+. Especially againts wrinkles and marks. Chanel recently launched their Cruise collection and this is their nail polish "Coquillage". This gorgeous pink Sisley phyto lipgloss is one of my all-time favorites. Armani is launching a new "front row collection" I love it! The structure is quit wet when you apply it on the lips but it's dry in a few seconds and has a gorgeous matt finish on the lips.This retouching pencil from Bobbi Brown is a gorgeous highlighter in the perfect color. The pigment is strong and very longlasting. I love it! Also perfect for traveling or to take away in your everyday make-up bag. An all-time favorite from Dermalogica is this after-sun.

Biotherm has launched for this summer a few products in the Skin Fitness range. I use all of the 3 product (Purifying and cleansing body foam, Instant smooting and moisturizing body treatment and Firming Recovery body mulsion) but the body foam is my favorite! Also a beauty from the Chanel Cruise collection. The les beiges. This powder gives me the best natural glow finish. Keune a brand for hairproducts which I really like has a new item for the summer called Sun Shield Oil. Protection with a SPF 8. In my beach-bag, CHECK! The next product is defnitely favorite for a few years now. The Marc Inbane Natural tanning spray. At this time of the year I am not tanned yet and haven't see sun for a while. And this one is so natural!  Biodermal also an all-time favorite when it comes to sun protection. SPF 30 is perfect for me and I like to use a spray because it's easy and quick. For the face I like to use a spf 20 and this pep-start from Clinique is very nice. The structure is light-weighted.
Last but not least: A must have in my bag because I always have such a shiny skin during the day. Clarins "Pore Perfecting matifying kit".

Sisley has a new fragrance. I love the gorgeous bottle!

The Izia story began in Poland, in the exceptionally refined surrounding of Lançut Castle. There was a magnificent rose garden near the tennis court that Isabelle d’Ornano, creator of Izia and matriarch of the family that owns Sisley, wanted to reproduce at her home in the Loire Valley.
She planted many different types of roses that grew and gained in potency. Amongst these roses was one that was particularly beautiful, adorned with flecks of gold. It was proud and capricious, climbing high and only flowering once a year for a short time. For years, Isabelle d’Ornano made bouquets with this rose. When mixed with other flowers, its fragrance overpowered all others.
One day, Isabelle d’Ornano decided she had to create a fragrance based on this flower to capture its ephemeral scent. This rose would be the starting point for a new fragrance.
She brought a bouquets to perfumer, Amandine Clerc-Marie, to help bring Izia to life. Amandine worked with Isabelle to recreate the smell of the bouquet, including its fresh, citrus notes, its elegance, and its floral power. To enhance the Rose scent, she chose the glow of pink pepper, bergamot, and aldehydes, a powerful, ethereal floral heart, combined with the warmth of cedar, amber, and musks.   

Fragrance can often evoke memories and emotions so naturally Isabelle d’Ornano thought about whom she would like to present this fragrance to if they were still around. First, Mogens Twede and his wife, Dolly Radziwill, Isabelle's aunt. Dolly was truly one of a kind, friends with Coco Chanel, Misia Sert, and Prince Yusupov. Second, their friend Alex Rzewuski, who designed many sets for the Ballets Russes.

They are with Izia in spirit and give it its resolutely modern touch. As she says: 
"Fashion is an eternal cycle"
That is why she wanted a young, slightly pop art design for the image.       

         Isabelle’s daughter Christine suggested the artist Quentin Jones. Her surrealist, rock and roll style, mixed with the romantic inspiration behind Izia pleased her immediately. Isabelle d’Ornano, who had always appreciated collage and cut-out work and was a keen collector of contemporary art with a fondness for mixing styles, found the idea original and modern. And because Izia is also a family affair, Isabelle d’Ornano chose the mysterious, modern beauty of her redheaded niece, Sonia, whose family comes from the very castle where it all began, Lançut, to embody the Izia spirit.
Bronislaw Krzysztof, sculptor and friend of Isabelle d’Ornano, designed the Izia bottle. He suggested the unusual design of two glass sculptures leaning against each other. A dynamic and modern shape, with the pink glass catching the light and creating flickering shimmers in the fragrance, recalling the sunny heart of the original flower.

I am truly obsessed with this new mascara from Lancome. The bigger the better!

*than bare lashes alone

What else you need to know:
Monsieur Big’s brush has a unique shape with soft, wavy fibers to deliver the perfect amount of formula with the very first stroke. His ultra-creamy formula has supple waxes and polymers to adhere immediately to lashes for BIG, buildable volume and length. Apply one coat and you will see why Monsieur Big is the one. Keep applying and you’ll forget all the others.

 Chanel is launching a new collection for summer 2017 and it's gorgeous as always!
I would like to show you the nail polishes of this collection.

The colors are inspired by natural landscapes. A palette of warm
colors, as if the sunlight strokes over it, reveals his warm, nude  and
peach nuances, sublimated by full and intense source tones. Green accents,
a delicate blue-gray and glossy coral tones create shades reminiscent of a glorious sunset.

The coral and pink shades can be worn separately or together. They provide
all of that holiday feeling, glamor and summery cheerfulness: Coquillage (2)
is a bold pastel orange, Coralium (3) is a sensual pastel coral shade soft pastel pink. Sargasso (1)provides the final touch: a gray lacquer blue-green sheen, which the tanned complexion by its freshness makes beautiful finish.

There is a new range coming up and I will tell you more about that.

 First things first. A short summary about the brand Caudalie:
In 1993, Mathilde and her husband Bertrand Thomas met Professor Vercauteren from the Bordeaux Faculty of Pharmacy at Château Smith Haut Lafitte (which belongs to her parents),

He explained to them to what extent “grape seeds are treasure troves!”.

This realization let to the creation of a new line of cosmetics and anti-ageing products because, thanks to a revolutionary procedure, grape polyphenols were able to be stabilised.
The first Caudalie products were created in 1995.
The first Vinothérapie® Spa was created in 1999 by Caudalie.
