Dita Von Tese x ArtDeco 615 Lipstick

A while ago Dita Von Tese collaborated with the make-up brand ArtDeco and came up with really cool shades of eyeshadow, lipstick and nail polishes. I was pretty excited when I heard about it so I quickly bought this beautiful rich shade of red lipstick in the shade 615 - Velvet Lipstick and 524 eyeshadow, which is a perfect dark-ish brown color (without shimmer).

This shade of red is really nice and doesn't look to orange, like some, and also isn't too dark, so it's perfect to wear both during day time and later in the evening.

Btw, check out my store on Tictail.

Garnier Moisture Match - Mattifying Fresh Cream Review

My review of Garnier Moisture Match - Mattifying Fresh Cream. It promises 24hour hydration and mattifying effect for combination to oily skin.

 The ingredients

 It looks a bit minty/green-ish.

The cream has a very pleasant and fresh smell and a nice light gel-like texture. When applied it blends in nicely to the skin and doesn't leave any traces. My skin is oily so after browsing some reviews online I was hoping this would be an appropriate product for me, but as I'm writing this about one hour after applying it to my face, my skin is already shiny. The good thing is that you need a pea-size amount, so it should last people who like it for quite a while. After using it for a few days I can say that this is not suitable for my skin (I think it might have also broke my skin out) so it's probably going to my mum :).

This is how my skin looked right after applying it. And trust me you don't want to see how it looks now.

New in: 3x Isabel Marant

This post is from last year's Net-a-porter sale, so the items are no longer available.. But Isabel Marant comes out with similar 'basic' dresses like these every season, you just have to search a little.

 Two Isabel Marant Étoile 'Janet' jersey racer-back tank dresses - black & cream/white. These can be worn as dresses in the summer time or with my second purchase that you can see below.

And a black Isabel Marant Étoile 'Calice' crochet-knit cotton dress that can be worn over bathing suits or dressed up with any of the jersey dresses above for two different occasions. 

I can't wait for her new season to become available at online stores to make a fall/winter wishlist.

New in: Louis Vuitton

While I was in Vienna last summer around this time I also visited their Louis Vuitton Boutique and purchased a little something..well, two things actually.

This bag is pretty big for something little, don't you think? ;) 

First reveal:

Louis Vuitton Ikat Bandeau (similar here

What's hiding in the dustbag?

Louis Vuitton Monogram Neverfull Tote in MM size (medium). I think this bag is a staple and a classic, and it's name is also true - you can fit your whole life inside and it's also very light weight so it's a perfect travel bag. The only problem I have with it is the recognizable logo which makes me hesitant to wear it sometimes, because there are just so many fakes around. And I also don't usually opt for fleshy logo type things so this purchase is one of those I'm constantly reconsidering.

The next thing from Louis Vuitton that I would like to purchase is a Speedy 30 with the additional shoulder strap, but in Damier Ebene canvas, which is not so flashy, but I'm still just thinking about it.

H&M x Isabel Marant

I'm sure you've already heard the happy news about this new collaboration of Isabel Marant with H&M that was announced this morning. I have to say that I'm pretty excited, since some of her clothes from the main line can get pretty expensive, so this will definitely be the first time for me to actually go in front of the stores on November 14th and hopefully buy something nice. I can't wait to see the first designs she comes up with.
You can read more information about this event here at Vogue, or watch the video from Youtube below:

New in: Elizabeth & James Blazer

Sales have officially started almost everywhere already, except in Europe, where we at least get the chance to shop in pre-sales.. That is if you're a 'loyal' customer at that shop/store and they send you an email invitation with the coupon code. Last week I got two of those and I know that my wallet wasn't happy about that. 

The first one was from TheCorner, and it included the already discounted items so I quickly browsed around and found this classic black blazer from Elizabeth and James (designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) for a great price and I was really happy when I tried it on and it fit perfectly.

I'm still waiting for the other package to arrive - hopefully it'll be here today.

The main sale event is also coming close - the Net-a-porter sale. I already have a wish-list for it made up in my mind.

Testament at Ace of Spades in Sacramento, CA

One 'unusual' post with some photos from a show I saw a few hours after I landed at the Sacramento airport on February 28th.

When I arrived at the club Testament were already playing and it was a great show. I only wished they would play a couple more songs. At the end I wanted to buy their tour t-shirt (the one Chuck - the singer) is also wearing, but it was sold out.
