Brand New: Dior Rouge Dior Brillant Glosses

Dior Rouge Brilliant
Summer's approaching and that always means.. new lip glosses! And Dior decided to follow that route as well and just launched their Dior Rouge Dior Brillant glosses. There are twelve shades in the line-up and I was invited to the Dior HQ to try them out. Whether or not you're a lip gloss fan I'll leave up to you to decide - I am in some cases but definitely not in all. I can't stand sticky glosses and when I find big chunks of glitter in them they're banned from my purse without exception. So how do these new ones perform? I have the four "it-colours" from the collection to show you, and you can probably already guess which one my favourite is.. Or not?

Have you ever tried.. a solid hair serum?

Kerastase K Ultime Solid Hair Serum Balm
Some things are reinvented a hundred times, but this one.. it's new for me. I know LUSH does some solid hair shampoos and other green brands might also do these, but I haven't personally tried any solid hair products up until this little one came along. I'm talking about the Kérastase Elixir K Ultime Solid Serum. I absolutely love the different hair oils Kérastase does (I can't even pick a favourite!) and this solid serum contains no less than a blend of 15 different oils. That makes it the most powerful blend of goodness Kérastase has to offer.

Festival Proof with Mia Moretti's MAC Collection

MAC Mia Moretti Coachella Collection
Festival season has officially started with Coachella in California and more locally it's almost time for the awesome festival Groezrock which kicks off the festival season in Belgium. I haven't ever been to Coachella (now that would be awesome), but I have had my fair share of awesome Belgian festivals in the past 13 years and if there's one thing I know.. it's that usually make-up is not on my mind those days. I'll bring simple products that'll work with a small mirror,without brushes and most importantly won't take up too much space in your backpack. DJ and it-girl Mia Moretti has been on stage at Coachella multiple times and after deejaying at some MAC Cosmetics parties she now also launched her first and very own MAC collection, inspired by festivals and in particular Coachella. And being a festival habituée.. She knows exactly which textures and formulas to pick to make this collection festival proof!

Another Londop Trip: Ace Hotel, Ethos, The Book Club, Anthropologie & Dum Dum Donuts

Another London Trip
You know I love to visit London.. I lived there as an au pair for a little over half a year and I still miss that city daily. So whenever the opportunity comes up for a trip, I'm always up for it.. This time we went for a very brief one night city trip of 36 hours and booked a room in the Ace Hotel, a hotel in the East of London that I've always been quite curious about after reading rave reviews about most of the Ace hotels around the world. It's definitely not a budget hotel, but when traveling for just one night we always like to make the hotel one of the reasons to visit.

New Palette On The Block: Clinique Wear Everywhere Nudes

Clinique Wear Everywhere Nudes Palette (new 2015)
There's a new neutral palette in town.. And it's a good one. Clinique has already wowed us with a killer neutral palette last year (recap here) and it sold out in a matter of days, but this one.. I kinda think it's even better. The shades are definitely a little warmer than those of the previous one, with a gorgeous rich warm copper that makes my heart beat a lil' faster. While most of the shades of the previous warm palette were taken from quads and duo's that already existed, these feature quite some new ones. With four shades (one matte, four soft shimmer & three super shimmer) this really does justice to its name: Wear Everywhere Nudes. Because this'll take you from office to clubbing in just eight shades!
