La Vie En… Dior Rosy Glow

Dior Rosy Glow FOTD

You’ve got to acknowledge how awesome a limited edition product is if it makes a comeback as part of the permanent line-up. That’s what happened to *Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush. It was all the rage when it was first launched as part of Dior‘s 2012 spring makeup collection. Many, MANY bloggers absolutely swear by it. Later, it came back as a permanent piece in the Dior Backstage Pro line.

This has got me curious, so here is my question for all of you: what are the rules like where you are? Here in Belgium, as you can see, pets are allowed on public transportation. Back home in Taiwan, you can only travel with pets if they are in their crates. This essentially means if you have a bigger dog, you’ll have to figure something else out. I have to say all the pets I’ve seen here are super well-behaved. They never bother me! [Read more...]

Hourglass Muse Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss & Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner FOTD

I can tell you the story about how Hourglass Muse Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss and Hourglass Muse Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner came into my possession, but I’m afraid it’s disappointingly short. Basically, I learnt that Hourglass is spicing summer up with some new shades, and I needed all the corals. The end.

Not the most exciting story I know, but the formulas themselves? Splendid! [Read more...]
