Benefit Make up Kit : How to Look the Best at Everything

Hello dear followers,

hope you are having a great time during holidays! I have been a bit absent since i am currently back home in Greece and don't spend so much time in my computer. I eat, drink, sleep, go out with friends and enjoy the days away from work! I also shop a lot here (what a surprise) and i have been trying some new things on makeup so i though i share with you my latest purchase as the last post for 2013!

I was looking to buy something from Benefit Cosmetics during my visit in my hometown's Sephora when my eye got stuck in this nice kit...the "How to look the best at everything" flawless complexion makeup kit! And since it has several different products from the company that i wanted to try and it was on 35% discount and the packaging looks so cute i went for it!

Valeur Absolue, a mathematical term in the world of beauty

If you search in the internet about the term "valeur absolue" (absolute value in english) you will find out that is connected to mathematics and numbers and all that stuff...so you might wonder what a beauty post has to do with that? 

In the world of beauty Valeur Absolue is the term for something "more than perfumes", exceptional fragrances that will steal your heart and mind. The brand was created by women for women and they not only aim to make us smell nice but also to make us feel exceptional!If you need more information about their story do visit the Valeu Absolue website and get to know them better.

The brand consists of three different fragrances, Joie-Eclat, Harmonie and Sensualite' and Coolbrandz was kind enough to send me the small packages of all three to try them. So here i will share with you my experience and how i feel about those parfumes. Let's start!

Review Clarisonic Plus skin's best friend!

Some weeks ago i received my first package from Coolbrandz to try a product for facial and body care and today i am presenting to you my adventures with the Clarisonic Plus! Before i dive into explaining the product just to give you some infos about Coolbrandz!

Coolbrandz is a Swiss based platform, dedicated to the Swiss market as far as products, events, services, places and whatever else you can think of, that gives the opportunity to those living in Switzerland to try several products (or attend events or places) and share their opinion through media! Real customers who will say their sincere opinion is a good way of marketing and companies know whether their product might be a huge success or failure to the target group they are aiming for. I am far from been an expert on these things but i find it a really interesting and innovative approach! If you want to learn more do visit the great website of Coolbrandz and you will find more information!

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser

The last weeks i have been woring about my face skin, a little bit more than usual. The cold made it more dry, the spots have been multiplying and my skin looks for some reason pale (maybe i need holidays to relax!). So i decided to take some drastic measures to bring it back! Of course drinking more water, sleeping a bit more and eating well makes a difference but a good cleanser will definately help. For that i payed a visit to Kiehl's and bought one of their popular face products the Ultra Facial Cleanser for all skin types.

Christmas Parties Dressing Up Ideas

The closer we get to Christmas the more parties we have to attend. This Friday was my first party of the season and as i was trying to find what i will wear i though i share with you some of the styles i like! And since most of you might need to attend your company/lab/work Christmas Party, as i have, i picked outfits that are not so revealing so that you keep it more professional in front of you co workers.

The Truth About Curls Products by Paul Mitchell

It's true, i have been a bit away from the blog again and i feel really bad...Unfortunately once again this last week work took up most of my time and made me really tired so didn't have time to share with you any post. I tried to combine it with the a bit of exercise and go out once but that was hard! Also winter is here with the first snow that made me feel more without energy. Anyway now i am back and i promise to be present more since i missed it so much! 

Today i though i share with you something that came with my PinkBox October as one of the products in there. I will give you some information about the Paul Mitchell kit "The Truth About Curls" and the use i made of it the last weeks.

Everyday hair styling products

I am one of those girls that i like my hair straight and that is what i try to achieve every morning in a little bit of time. Unfortunately my hair are a bit wavy and sometimes they can look really bad, especially when there is humidity (worse nightmare) and where i live humidity is almost present every single morning. For that reason i had to come up with a routine and with a bit of help from two products i achieve pretty fast my all day lasting straight hair!

Yves Rocher Face Peeling and Face Mask

I am a fan of cosmetics that are based on natural ingredients and while living in Greece my needs were covered by Apivita and Body Shop. I still bring back a lot of products from Apivita when i go back home but sometimes i run out fast. As for Body Shop i still find them here! When i moved to Zurich i had to find a company like Apivita to cover the spot and this was Yves Rocher! I use a lot of their products and i find them great so today i though i share my opinion for two face care products that i constantly use! 

Meet the Apricot Face Peeling and the Pomegranate 3 Minutes Face Mask!

Flormar Quartet Compact Eye Shadow

Two weekends ago i was spending my time in Geneva and on Saturday morning i was as usual in the main shopping street downtown walking and doing some window shopping. Passing by Douglas, the cosmetic shop in Switzerland, i noticed that they had a 20% off so of course i had to go in! Apart from all the already familiar make up brands i noticed one that i didn't know, Flormar. I wanted to try something from them but didn't have enough time to choose several products so i decided to begin with one product. And of course i chose one that i really find important, eye shadow.

October Recipe French Palmier

The last weeks have been a bit full, with work (too much), with halloween party (lots of fun), with friends needing me around (how can you say no?) and in general with me running around to get everything done and not having time for me. Since i have been away from posting the last week i though of coming back with something different than beauty, a recipe! I really like cooking and baking and i find it relaxing so i though i share a recipe with you that i made this month! Easy french palmier (or hearts) from puff pastry!

The Maybellines

There is one think that i cannot skip in my make up everyday...I might not wear blush, i might not wear eye shadow but i have to wear mascara. It always feels different with a bit of mascara in my eyelashes and sometimes is the only thing i need to feel prettier! So today i though i write about the Maybelline New York Mascaras that i have right now or that i tried before.

Bettina Barty Body Butter

Today i want to talk to you about one of my favourite body butters the "Rice Milk and Cherry Blossom" from the German company Bettina Barty. You can always find it in my body product collection and in a small jar that i refill, in my gym bag.

Σήμερα θέλω να σας μιλήσω για ένα αγαπημένο προιόν το "Rice Milk and Cherry Blossom Body Butter" από τη γερμανική εταιρεία Bettina Barty. Υπάρχει πάντοτε ανάμεσα στα προιόντα σώματος στο σπίτι και μια ποσότητα σε ένα μικρό βαζάκι στην τσάντα του γυμναστηρίου.

Hair mask ''Le petit Marseillais''

Washing, drying with hair dryer, use of straightener and style products and dyed blond = hair disaster! My poor hair go through a lot every day so they need special care and apart from mild shampoo and conditioner they need 2 times per week a  hair mask. Since i am a person who enjoys trying new stuff i tried many hair masks, some of them good some of them bad (at one point i will try to post a battle of hair products) and now i found a new love...the hair mask from ''Le petit Marseillais''.

My all time classics

There are some products i consider really important for me. I talk about those that when they finish i immediately want to go and buy again, those that i always need to have and i ask even other people to bring me, those that when i compare them with other products they still win! I consider them "all time classics" and i decided to start this series and share them every once in a while with you! The first two products are beauty related and they are my favourite!!

Budget Makeup Products

It is always the same with me and shopping beauty products : i go for a specific thing i need and i buy a whole bunch of stuff. This time I was in need of a new every day make up and i ended up with several new products from Catrice and Essence. I got the chance to try them out those days and so i though i will present them to you!

I started with the main thing i was aiming for, the everyday make up. I tried a lot but gave a chance to this All Matt Plus Make up from Catrice. It gives me nice coverage which stays all day and it feels really light, something that i like for my "go to work" make up. I also loved the matt feeling!
