Sœurs de Luxe

Essie is finally stocked in department stores here in Switzerland, even if the prices are ridiculously inflated. I love the metallic range thats just been brought out here. I’m not a fan of slightly shimmery polishes and I like either near matte or very shiny/ glittery. Luckily the new collection in perfect and the effect is similar to having coloured foil on my nails. I bought ‘nothing else metals’. I was quite disappointed with the spring collection and I had hoped to see some nice matte pastels. This one is a little boring but sun cream has been one of my go to products for the last few weeks. The temperature has been pretty up and down but it has been in the mid 20s most afternoons which means I’ve been spending more time outside. I have olive skin which means I don’t burn easily but I like to use some sun protection for wrinkle prevention and avoiding skin cancer. My favourite is probably Clarins sun care soothing cream SPF 20. I do like to use garnier oil with SPF 20 too if I’m trying to build a tan. It bronzes your skin gently in the sun whilst still offering decent protection. I am in love with the Marc Jacobs kumquat perfume I discovered in a department store here. There’s a range that includes kumquat, hibiscus and rain. I’m one of those people who would like to have a signature scent and only ever where that perfume as I am really fussy, I tend to only switch between Chanel chance and chanel coco mademoiselle. I feel that the kumquat scent is perfect, it’s not childishly sweet or too strong is deliciously citrusy and perfect for spring. What are your spring obsessions? Xoxo Kirsty
