wearing a subtle mix of yellow and brown! I love to play with colors and materials and I was surprised that I have not worn this combo before. I have found all these items a very long time ago and all of them were on SALE!
the shirt I have found at Benetton in Basel and it is by SISLEY – the skirt is from FIZZEN and the awesome brown pointy pumps are from the NAVYBOOT Outlet at STÜCKI. the brown H&M leather bag found its way for 5 CHF into my wardrobe from the fleamarket 🙂 so yeah, not all of them were on SALE but all of them were a bargain.
I hope you all had a nice weekend and that you can start freshly into the new week – I got loads of things planned for the upcoming week – fashion shootings – cashmere SALE and an event in ZH. stay tuned. X

there is something nice on the market very very soon: the SISLEY Paris phyto 4 ombres 2 mystery. I was one of the lucky bloggers that got one of these to play around and have fun with it. thank you SISLEY!
I indeed played with it and found some really nice looks with the gorgeous four colors. rather simple ones or more dramatic darker looks. As I love to compare things I wanted to compare it with the rather new CLINIQUE nutcracker palette.
PHYTO 4 OMBRES – 2 mystery
is a quartet of eye shadow that allows perfect control of color thanks to micronized pigments and ideal concentration. I love the texture of the eye shadows, its a mix between a powder and gel. the application is super easy and the eye shadows are very long-wearing. they do not leak into the wrinkles, nor in the folds of eyelids. the four colors make a variety of types of make-up looks – from rather natural to more intense to super dramatic also thanks to the various effects: matte bright, metallic and satin.

THE NUTCRACKER ACT I – snowflake suite / plié pink
inspired by the timeless ballet classic the four shades of All About shadows, plus plié pink blush make an awesome and timeless palette. launched right before christmas it was perfect to celebrate the holidays with sparkly eyes and soft, sweet cheeks. but even now I find these gorgeous four eye shadows are so great for an everyday look. but also in that very case the colors can be mixed and transformed into different looks – from very decent to super dark. the colors are called: Sugar Cane – Crystal Pink – Mushroom and Boron.

so as you may have figured out from my descriptions of the products I love them both! they are very different and can be combined for the perfect eye look. stay tuned for the photos with the looks on my FB page. xx
purple – burgundy – bordeaux – oxblood – raspberry – cherry to only name a few of the lovely colors for autumn. I went thru my collection of beauty products and found quiet a lot of nice fall colors, 15 to be precise. let me list them below. for me the two most important things about wearing darker lipsticks are to have a very even nice skin and exfoliated lips!

in fall I also love to wear darker tones on my nails and I am so happy with the STRIPLAC dark violet – the OPI in the cable car pool lane – MALVA las vegas and ALESSANDRO love affaire. when I look at my beauty stuff I can see a lot of different bronzing poswers and a huge variety of lipsticks. well no surprise to me – as these are my two favorite parts to apply makeup: cheeks and lips!
as I am already a fan of the masque creme a la rose noire by sisley I was very excited to see that the soon to be launched product was also containing black rose. I am very happy to be able to test this product before it is available in the stores and I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really really love it! I use this precious face oil every other day and night and I think I will even love it more in winter when my skin is dryer. It can be used alone or under the moisturizer day and/or night.
so what makes it so special?
Omega 3 fatty acids, plum oil, camelina oil, phyto squalane from olive oil, funnel alge, vitamine E, avocado extract, black bulgarian rose, magnolia
all these things help to calm, repair and maintain our skin.
I am such a huge mask lover and apply them 2 to 4 times a week. One of my favorite makeUp artists, Lisa Eldridge recommended the SISLEY masques for dry skin and long haul flights! So when I was sitting in the Airbus 380 on my way to San Francisco I used a sample of the SISLEY EXPRESS FLOWER GEL and I loved it. Now let me introduce 4 different face masks by SISLEY PARIS – lets start from left to right!
#EXPRESS FLOWER GEL hydrating, toning and firming mask
Apply all over face, except eye area, after 3 minutes blot to absorb excess. do not rinse off. hydrates tones and softens the skin!
#RADIANT GLOW EXPRESS MASK cleansing with red clay
Apply all over face, except eye area, absorbs impurities and deep-cleanses the skin. Gives an instant radiance boost. Leave on for 3 to 5 minutes and rinse with water!
#BLACK ROSE CREAM MASKsmoothing, plumbing, brightening
Apply all over face, except eye area, 2 to 3 times a week. wipe away any excess after 10 to 15 minutes!
#FACIAL MASK with linden blossom
Apply all over face, except eye area, once or twice a week. this mask helps to relax and smooth the face. Remove with lukewarm water after 20 minutes.
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE MASK is the #BLACK ROSE CREAM MASK – I seriously want to apply this mask every night 🙂 I prefere masks where you do not have to rinse off excess with water because I apply the mask before going to bed and leave it on during my sleep.
are you a mask lover too? which products do you use and recommend?
a few days ago Sara P. took these photos of me down by the river RHEIN in Basel, Switzerland. As I can feel spring approaching I decided to move all my winter coats to the very far back of my closet. its time for my spring coats. this gorgeous navy coat by JO BRAUER is one of my favorite, the only downside is that the coat has no pockets.. thats really something I care for when buying a jacket – I NEED POCKETS!
so when I saw these navy TOD’S on SALE at Grieder I knew that they would be a perfect match for my coat. another SALE piece is the yellow silk top by SISLEY that I found at BENETTON
