It’s been a few weeks since I wrote my last beauty review here on the blog, so I’m back with another one. And I can’t believe I haven’t already written a review about this makeup product. I was certain that I already had, but I checked, and no…I haven’t! Let’s correct that then! I’ve been using NYX’s HD Studio Photogenic foundation for a couple of months non-stop now and I have to tell you, I absolutely love it. It has a very nice consistency, medium to high coverage, and it’s not absolutely matte, something that goes perfectly well with my skin type which is more on the dry side, especially during the winter months. The shade “vanilla” is a little bit darker than my skin tone, but it blends so well that you can’t really tell. I love the finish it leaves on the skin, and the coverage. It’s very light weight and easy to apply, it doesn’t makes you look cakey, on the contrary, and looks great in photos or videos. I love it so much, that I’m definitely going to purchase it after this tube is over. It’s my go-to foundation for the past couple of months.
I recently tried out Sephora’s Rose masks for the eyes and the lips (not pictured here), and I’m here to write my review about them.
Sephora Rose lip mask: I tried it after I’ve swatched the full 44 shades collection of Sephora’s Cream Lip Stains on my lips the other day (watch my video below to see them), and it really helped my lips feel hydrated and normal again. It has a nice discreet rose scent and has a lot of product in it. My lips were so dry that they left the mask completely dry too after using it, but that’s good because they took all the good elements the mask had to give them. Follow up with a deeply moisturizing lip balm, and your lips are going to feel perfect again in no time. 5/5 for me.
I recently collaborated with Luigi and had the pleasure of wearing and photographing some of their gorgeous pairs of shoes. Luigi is a Greek company, based in my hometown, Thessaloniki, which already had a physical store downtown, when they decided to also open up an e-shop, which now is one of the biggest in the country. They have a wide variety of footwear, bags and other accessories, in very reasonable prices and fashionable designs. I recently found out that not only they ship all over Greece, Cyprus, and Europe in general, but they actually have worldwide shipping. Isn’t this amazing? So I’m gonna link them below, and make sure to visit their site, after you see my photos to check out the rest of their shoes.
I’m here with the second part of my travel diary from Athens. If you haven’t read the first one, here it is. I’ve already talked you through days 1-3, and here’s day 4, the day after the girls left. We started the day with breakfast/brunch near the area where we were staying. T. and I shared the fried eggs you see in the photo above in a cute little place called Monsieur Barbu. The red refreshment is homemade sour cherry juice. Read the captions under the photos to see what we did next, and watch the vlog at the end of this post, in case you missed it on the previous one.
Heyyy! I was finally able to go though the photos I took while I was in Athens, and I’m here to show you the diary from those days. I’ve already uploaded the vlog I filmed on my channel, but since it’s mostly in Greek, I wanted to make a post here as well. This is only part 1 though, because I had too many photos and I didn’t want the post to be cramped with them. We flew to Athens on Tuesday the 5th of September, with T., and arrived there late in the afternoon, but went straight to dinner with family/friends, so I don’t have photos from that day (you might want to watch the vlog though for some #foodporn). On the next day, my girls from Thessaloniki arrived too. You might already know them from their Youtube channels, on the photo above (left to right) we have Maria of Stylebows, Katerina of Kate Tzoe and Thalia of Miss Thalia. The reason we all went to Athens was because we were invited to attend the press event/launch party for Kat Von D Beauty, which is finally coming to Greece at the end of this month. The girls were too tired to do much, but here’s what we did… Read the captions under the photos for more….
