Michael Jackson – A place With No Name

If there is one thing, more sacred than make up and clothes, that is family ! And as 4 of my relatives were visiting me from Paris the last 3 weeks, I did not take the time to write, hence my absence here. I did have the time to shop though, and here are 2 little treasures I found at Lush.

I already had a scrub from Lush that I previously mentioned here (it was actually my first review!) but I bought a new one called Ocean Salt. That scrub literally smells like margarita ! It has coarse salt in it to scrub gently the skin and open the pores, lemon juice to cleans the pores, and even vodka ! Yes my dears, vodka, that disinfects and helps against blackheads and blocked pores. It is slightly aggressive, and stings a bit so it was advised to use it only once or twice a week, as opposed to the Dark Angels that you can almost use on regular basis. It also contains fresh avocado and coconut, to smoothen the skin and moisturize it after attacking the pores. It is white-ish with some blue stains in it, and feels kind of like wet sand on your hands.

I read funny things in the reviews, like “it’s too salty”, “it stinks like sea water”, or even “don’t put on your mouth it tastes like salt” … People are funny aren’t they ? :) As for me, I love this scrub ! I have used it twice already and it leaves my skin very fresh and smooth, while removing as much dirt as possible.

After scrubbing your face, what you need to do is apply a mask, so the pores don’t stay open, waiting for new dirt to fall right in. I bought one called Brazened Honey.

The Brazened Honey also contains tones of natural elements such as honey (duh!) but also ginger, lime, egg, parsley, coriander, turmeric, fennel, sage and rosemary. No it’s not a stew, I’m still talking about a face mask ! It is mustard-yellow, and smells very strong, like a big spicy veggie stew. As a fresh mask, I was advised to keep it in the fridge, and use it within 2 weeks, every other day. I apply it in a thin layer and together with the scrub it helped tightening my pores, getting rid of little annoying blackheads, and making my complexion brighter and smoother

( I took a picture of myself with the mask on, thinking that you can’t die from being ridiculous, but on second thought I think you can, so I will not post that picture)

I hope you guys found these reviews interesting, if you have any opinion on these products, or any advice about other products of that kind, let me know :) Good luck for the coming week, bisous bisous :*

Stromae – Evora

Hello hello you girls and guys ! I wanted to show you today a super quick make up that got a lot of success on social media (I post the pictures on FB or Instagram before I actually post them here). The looks was inspired by 2 things : Yves Saint Laurent, and the need to stay in bed 15 minutes more in the morning because I was too tired. Yes, even I think sometimes, fuck make up, when it comes to getting up !

What I love about Yves Saint Laurent is that he is not afraid to mix pink with red, or blue with green, which may sound horrible and and clashy and almost vulgar, but somehow he makes it go wonderful together. I already told you here and there, how much I had been inspired by him after my visit to Marrakesh. Here I decided to mix a green liner on the mobile lid, at the root of the lashes but thicker than normal, a blue khol pencil on the root of the lower lashes, and 2 coats of blue Mascara. And that’s it ! No primer, no eye-shadow, no smoky, no crease, nothing !

I kept it super simple with my foundation and contouring too : BB cream all over, and bronzer on the cheekbones, sides of the nose and little touch on the bridge, above the brows and around the face as usual. It creates the effect that I spent 3 weeks in the sun and I naturally look great. The pink of the blush would have ruined the whole effect.

I wore it with matching clothes, a green sleeveless shirt from H&M and an electric blue pair of pants from Mango. I would have liked to avoid the belt but I lost a lot of weight recently so I had to have it, however I think the white one suits the looks pretty well. Then my peachy lipstick from the Make Up Store to add some lights and colors to my face, but in a discreet manner.

I hope you liked that make up and that outfit (that I admit you can’t see very well…) and I hope it inspired you ! You can check all my other looks on Instagram at @laumoody or just come back here and check my next posts. Bisous bisous ! :*
