Who is into skintertainment? You know these products that are a bit unusual, just beautiful and completely fascinating? That's something I love and I'm always excited when I get to try such interesting products!
J.One is a Korean brand that quickly got famous because it is linked to the actress, Ha JiWon, who launched the brand in 2015. She wanted to create a skincare line that not only works wonders but also simplifies the skincare routine. For example her Jelly Pack can be used as you sole moisturizer in the morning and it also doubles as a primer. At night, it can be used as sleeping pack.
You've probably heard me talking about cushion foundations too much lately, haven't you? I think it's time for me to go back to regular liquid foundations and today I have a review of Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Foundation! And as a bonus I also recently bought one of Armani's Lip Mangets and I love it so much so I decided to share my thoughts about it here on the blog, too :D
There is so much going on in the beauty world in Switzerland at the moment and this makes me happy, of course! Last year in May, a first Sephora opened in Manor Geneva and everybody went crazy because it was the first time Swiss people had access to iconic brands such as Marc Jacobs, Too Faced, Burberry, Makeup Forever, etc. This beautiful story is spreading all over Switzerland with other Sephora corners opening in Yverdon, Chavannes, Vésenaz, Morges, Basel, Sion and Lausanne (always in Manor)! :D The opening of the Sephora located inside Manor at Lausanne was last week and I had the pleasure to be present!
By the way, a Sephora will also open on April 6th in Zürich!
Leaders, the famous Korean brand expert in sheet masks has landed in Switzerland at Marionnaud and if you know me well, you can imagine how excited I was when I heard this news! Their Aquaringer mask (featured in my blog banner :p ) is one of my favorite sheet masks by the way ;D
Great news for the nailistas! The famous and trendy nail polish brand Smith & Cult is now available in Switzerland, at Manor!
ABOUT THE BRAND
Smith & Cult was created by beauty veteran Dineh Mohajer who revolutionized the color cosmetics industry when she launched Hard Candy. Several years and creative collaborations later, Mohajer is bringing about the next evolution of beauty with Smith & Cult.
Smith & Cult’s Nailed Lacquer consistently delivers both flawlessly smooth coverage and brilliant shine. While custom tailored to provide high performance, the exclusive 8-Free formula is formulated without Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Xylene, Ethyl Tosylamide or Triphenyl Phosphate.
Tenderoni is a taupe brown creme that is opaque in 2 coats. It has a glossy finish and a formula that is very easy to work with, not too thick nor too thin.
Note that the brush is quite small (see comparison below) but it still works fine and is easy to control.
I also added some glitters using OPI When Monkeys Fly :D
And I've also reecntly got a super cute ring from Manor! I noticed that I don't wear rings very often, which is a bit sad because rings can totally change the look of your hands and look pretty cool. The bad thing is that this ring has opened new ring wishes for me, I think.... :p
In Switzerland, Smith & Cult is available at Manor for 26 CHF.
A new Dior cushion? I say "yes"! :D Do you remember the Dior Capture Totale DreamSkin Perfect Skin Cushion that was realeased last year? I had a review here and if you want to know more about cushions in terms of makeup, I also invite you to go back to my previous article. The Capture Totale cushion is a tinted moisturizer whereas the new DiorSkin Forever cushion is a real cushion foundation that provides medium to high coverage with a matte finish.
Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion has been a holy grail for me for a few years now and I was worried when I saw that it was discontinued and replaced by a new product last fall. Worried is maybe not the most appropriate word here, I should rather say that I panicked because as I said, the Mild lotion was a product I love and adore and I was really worried to see it replaced by a new lotion: Clinique Clarifying Lotion Twice A Day Exfoliator 1.0.
