Dior has an unusually vivid color palette this Summer, and the theme Care & Dare has a rather ubiquitous sense of joie de vivre. The juxtaposition of carefree and cared-for, is absolutely nonsensical, but it is exactly the spirit of fun that makes this collection worth getting out of bed for.

Shiseido has really been pulling out all the stops lately, and I recently received a press drop that I just can’t wait to share with you! The first thing that caught my eye was this new Shiseido Synchro Skin White Cushion Compact. I have been loving every single new foundation from the Synchro Skin range so far, and was excited to see how Shiseido can further improve a cushion that I already love so much.

I’ve been on the road a lot lately, and keeping my skin happy and balanced is tricky. Very often, tried and tested skincare staples fail to address my skin’s needs, and so I like to pack some masks along for all kinds of SOS.

SUQQU’s Designing Color Eyes 02 Hikaritouka appears at first glance to be rather exotic with its pop of orange, but I soon discovered it is much more versatile than it seems!

There’s nothing like coming home after a week’s exposure to cold, blustery “summer” in Germany. A deep cleanse is definitely in order, but it needs to gentle and respectful of the delicate state of my skin, sensitized by air travel. And I couldn’t have been happier than with Aveseena’s Honeyactive Beauty Mask!
