What i am enjoying this week so far...

Since the weather has been cold here, i cannot live without gloves. Leather gloves especially. The pair pictured below is from Accessorize, dark purple suede with a cute bow. These run a bit small though, so i wouldn't recommend them if you have big hands. I also own a pair of black vintage leather gloves but this week i prefer purple, maybe because i am always dressed in dark colours :)

Makeup and fragrance wise:

  • Viktor&Rolf flowerbomb extreme. I don't really like the original one on me, it smells good on others but not my kind of scent. This one however smells a bit more like vanilla and it's a very happy scent. I have been wearing this all week, its fresh and fruity as well. Its a scent i will surely get bored of soon, just because it is not a winter scent and during cold winters i am addicted to my YSL opium or Givenchy Very Irresistable...i will let you know :)
  • Chanel ebony eyeshadow paired with Estee Lauder Double wear pencil in Onyx. I like my eyes to be dark and smudgy, this has been my go to look of the week. I trace a line with the eyeliner, who is of exceptional longevity, smudge it a bit and place some Chanel Ebony over it . I love dark eyes:) Quite smokey, bedroomy but not too neat.
  • Chanel rouge coco lipstick in Muse. My all time favourite classic dark lip shade. Its quite neutral, a tad bit frosty, brown coppery pink but dark enough to make you look polished. I love this colour and i am on my second tube. I love this range so much, the colours are to die for. And they dont smell overpowering like the Dior ones which i now refuse to wear. We cannot be in the mood for nude lipsticks all the time, right ?:)
Here are some swatches of everything, the lightning isnt the best but you get the idea. And btw ...MAC carbon < Chanel Ebony. It's a dream to apply and blend or smudge !
I am so bad at taking lip swatches and my lips are so chapped at the moment, but here are the swatches on my lips of Chanel Muse without and with flash! I will try to improve :)
