Of Kiko Double Glam Eyeliner and Instagram

Did you know I have an Instagram account, and I post pictures of pretty makeup products there? Sometimes I also post info about new collections or mini reviews, like today:

See how beautiful these Double Glam Liners are? I already told you how much I love them in my Best of Kiko post, that I published when the US e-store opened. 

I'm planning to take advantage of the sale I mentioned in the caption and buy a few more, maybe Gold Sage - Anthracite. You can see all the shade duos available in the holiday collection here

Have you ever tried Kiko's eyeliners? Which one is your favorite?

The product featured in this review was purchased by Lulle. I received no compensation to write this post, which only reflects my personal opinion. This post does not contain affiliate links.

#FrenchFriday : Holiday Makeup Collections Roundup - Part I!

Affiliate Links

Holiday Makeup collections by French luxury brands

Time flies, and I can't believe the Holidays are already just around the corner! It feels like we've been seeing Holiday beauty collections pop out in stores as early as late summer this year, did you notice? I found that mildly annoying: can we please get to enjoy the end of summer and beginning of fall in peace without having to jump onto limited edition Holiday sets that sell out by mid-September?? 

Anyways, now feels like a more sensible time to start talking about Holiday shopping, and today's #FrenchFriday post is all about what French beauty brands have in store for the merry season. Because I have so many pics of sparkly Holiday goodies to share with you, I've had to split this in two posts, and we're starting today with the stars of the department stores: Dior, Chanel and Guerlain. Look out for part II coming soon. Let's take a look!

How I feel about the attacks in Paris

Hello there. I'm not quite ready yet to start writing about makeup and beauty again, although I realize that spending my time watching French 24-hour news channels is really not helping me get over the shock of the terrorist attacks in Paris. Expect regular posts to restart in the next couple days. 

By then, I'll keep watching this video, the only one that made me smile (okay even laugh out loud) in the past few days. It summarizes how I'm feeling right now pretty well - be warned, the f- word is used about two dozen times in a little more than 2 minutes of hysterical, cathartic rant.

There will be no #FrenchFriday today

I was finishing a post about Holiday collections when I heard the news of shootouts and explosions in Paris, in what appears to be terrorist attacks. I've heard reports of 40 casualties and some people I know are stuck at the Stade de France, where explosions have been heard during a soccer game.

I hope you understand that my heart bleeds to see my country hit by tragedy once more, and the last thing I want to do right now is talk about lipstick and holiday gifts.
See you next week.

Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting Blush Review: Of Makeup, Hearts and Bunnies

Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting Blush Review, Photos, Swatches: Baby Love and Your Love Is King

Close your eyes and picture fluffy bunnies leaping among gold and crystal chandeliers, on a background of floating pink hearts. There, now you have a good idea of what Too Faced's universe looks like. 
The whimsical makeup brand stayed true to its pink-loving tradition with their new blush line released for Fall, the Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blush: each blush comes in a heart-shaped compact, and the powder is embossed with bunnies, pearls and floral embellishment. I'm not really into pink and cheesy girly stuff in general, but I have to say these little blushes are really cute. 

Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting Blush Review, Photos, Swatches: Baby Love and Your Love Is King

A few months ago I was the lucky winner of a giveaway on Phyrra, and two of these new blushes found their way to my loving home: Baby Love, a warm, peachy nude with a little bit of fine shimmer, and Your Love Is King, a matte rosy plum. Let's look at some pretty pictures, and I'll tell you what I like and didn't like about these little blushers.
