What's in my shower tag!

Dear Tina from all the vanity tagged me, so, here it is!


I'm currently trying a few products from the Macadamia line:

  • Rejuvenating Shampoo, great for dry or damaged hair. 
  • Deep Repair Masque, 7 minutes after shampoo mask 
  • Healing Oil Spray, just started using this one, fingers crossed it turns out good!
I recently took a turn to more natural hair products and this is the second brand I try. Sulfates and paraben free, color safe, so far so good, my hair feels soft, lightweight and well hydrated.

Body products:

I'm a huge fan of Korres body products, from the main brand and Kings & Queens as well.

They smell heavenly, feel nourishing and moisturising, are very affordable, natural and greek! What more can I ask?

My favorite fall/winter scent is cinnamon and these Vanilla Cinnamon shower gel and body milk are just divine, I stock up every time I see them on buy one get one free.

For a special occasion or night out, I love these Tom Ford Black Orchid shower gel and body milk because they smell sexy, seductive and luxurious (if that makes sense!) with some dark, vampy vibes. 

I do have them for over a year (I got them at my first ever visit to the Estee Lauder bazaar)  because i forget to use them (lol) but they're in top condition so far and hope they stay this way!

Tools of the trade:

First time ever I purchased a pair of The Body Shop scrub gloves must have been in high school. I got them just for the novelty, I had no idea if I would like them, but they were pink (what else?) and looked so cute and out of the ordinary.

Since then I 've purchased a lot of pairs, in every color available, because it's the only thing I use in my shower, every day.

I am gentle while at it and I do moisture well after use and my skin is baby soft, resulting in many compliments and I have converted quite a few friends and female colleagues into using them.

As for exfoliating, I can't stand grainy products on my body, so, once a week (during spring/summer) or twice a month (during fall/winter) I take an extra step and I exfoliate with a body brush.
This one was actually a gift to my brother who never used it, so I claimed it mine, it also comes with a long handle to reach the back.

It comes with out saying that I follow up with generous quantities of moisturiser and my skin stays silky smooth for days.

That's it for now, I hope you are all well and thriving!

Fall 2013 favourites!

Lots of favourites, lots of photos, so let's get started!

1. Mac BB Cream: lovely consistency, decent coverage, SPF 35, what more can I ask? I got it in the summer and I chose Light and it is a bit dark for me now, so on the high planes of my face I use a bit of the following item.

2. MAC Prolongwear Concealer: shade NW15 is perfect on my cheeks, forehead, nose chin and under eyes because it is quite light so a tiny bit of this blended ith my foundation works as a charm.

3. Mac Strobe Cream: I mix it up with my foundation or BB cream and it adds a lovely luminosity to my skin because by itself now days it is quite dry and dul.

4. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer:  I got it in the shade Honey in order to use it more as a corrector than a concealer, in the inner corner and under my eyes and it works like a charm.

5. UD 24/7 Concealer Pen: I was debating for a lot time whether I should get this or not (in the never ending quest for the HG concealer, lol!) and I am very happy I did. I chose shade CIA and it is perfect for adding light exactly where I want (inner eye corners mostly). It is very creamy and it stays put pretty well.

6. Benefit Eyebright: its subtle pink tint is ideal to add some life to tired, sleepy eyes! I use it on the inner eye corners, on the waterline, even on my lids.


1. MUA blushes in Milan and New York: I'm not yet ready for toned down cheeks so when I don't use my beloved Benefit Rockateur use these two MUA blushes, they add a pretty tinted sheen to my cheeks.

2. Clarins Bronzing Duo in Light and MUA Barcelona: I love the Clarins because it is light enough to show up and add dimension to my face without warming up my cheeks too much. The MUA has a pretty champaign sheen and I use it in conjunction with matte blushes.

3. Jemma Kidd Iced Gold and Mac Lightscapade highlights: somedays I prefer a cream highlight others a powder, I love them both!

4. Mac Prep+Prime and Guerlain Meteorites Perles in 01 Finishing powders: I use the Mac mainly to set under eye concealer, it is perfect for that. The Guerlain is an everyday staple since I got it, I love it for the lovely glow and brightness it adds to my face.


1. UD Naked 2, Naked Basics and Too Faced Summer Eye palettes: what can I say, I've been neglecting my Mac palette over these babies!

2. Le Volume de Chanel mascara in Prune: OMG! Definitely a HG mascara but I say no more because this baby deserves a proper review!

3. Benefit Gimme Brow: when I got it I wasn't impressed because I was using it the wrong way! Now I drag it on my brows and it is the easiest, quickest way to achieve full, natural brows. 


Mac lipsticks in:
Pure Zen, Haute Altitude, Cockney and Oh Oh Oh. I decided to show some love to my Mac lippies because the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stains were all I wore for spring and summer!

That's it for now, I hope you're all well and thriving!
