Sephora Moisturizing Bronzing Body Lotion Review.

Hey Dolls, so now that Summer has not only officially come but is right in our face I have been really anxious to get my tan game on and was looking for a good product to help me out. Pal and fellow blogger Mara suggested the Sephora Moisturizing bronzing body lotion that she has been trying out so I decided to pick up a bottle myself the last time I was at Sephora.


First things first, a few things about the product

What it is:

A multitasking body lotion that gives skin immediate moisture and a natural radiance. 

What it is formulated to do:

Get soft skin and a beautiful, summertime glow with this multi-action formula. Skin is instantly nourished with long-lasting moisture, thanks to the SEPHORA skincare exclusive ingredient, HydroSenn+™, which softens skin and maximizes comfort. The fluid texture absorbs instantly—without a greasy effect. The radiant glow intensifies with each application, so you develop a subtle, even tan day after day. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMO's
- Triclosan


-HydroSenn+™: Polysaccharide derived from an Indian plant (Cassia angustifolia) with ultra-moisturizing capabilities. Forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface to capture and retain water. Ensures optimal moisture all day long. 

-DHA Complex and Erythrulose: A self-tanning complex in a low dosage that provides natural-looking, gradual color. 
-Pea Extract (Peptide): Renowned for protecting elastin and collagen fibers, which break down when exposed to harmful environmental aggressions: pollution, stress, UV. 

What I really loved about this body lotion is that it is non-greasy making it super easily absorbed by your skin -- works just like a moisturizer. Has a very nice scent to it and a very discreet sparkle to it's formula.

I have been using it for a week now and have already been seeing amazing results! It's helping my skin attain a natural glow and color without having a fake orange-y tint but revealing my true tan that suits my skin tone!

I use it every night before I go to sleep and will definitely be getting more of these babies!

MAC "Candy Yum Yum" Swatches.

Ok, ever since this lipstick first came out I wanted it like crazy. But like a lot of other Dolls I was disappointed to find that the lippie was sold out everywhere when it came out. And we're talking about a freaking year ago (talk about some serious determination) since "Candy Yum Yum" is a Limited Edition shade part of MAC's "Quite Cute" collection.

I was in luck though when fellow blogger Christine and I did a beauty swap and I finally got a hold of this famed lippie. All I can say is I FREAKIN' LOVE IT.

Such a unique color: it's a bit fluorescent, hot pink seriously words don't do it justice so I'll let the photos speak for it. And by the way, it's a matte finish which is a major plus.

Does anyone else have this lipstick?

Kisses Dolls!

NOTD: Sparkly Colorblocked Nails.

What I used:

- Sparitual Truebond Primer
- Seventeen no.23 on first 3 fingers
- Essence no.87 "Passion for Fashion" on last 2 fingers
- Essence no.04 "Space Queen" on all fingers
- Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

The Body Shop Pulse Store Blogger's Event.

A little while ago I was invited to the Blogger's Event for the new Pulse store in Kolonaki, Athens from The Body Shop. There to greet us was Dimitra Kaldi who invited us and organized the event -- thank you!

Stepping into the new Pulse store you can't help but get a fresh and homey feeling. All the products are amazingly put, the colors and the packages are just amaze!

What was also a nice touch to the new store is the fact that it is Eco friendly with LED light-bulbs everywhere and 100% FCS wood.

I would say the star product of the new store was the new line of Beautifying Oils which are THE BOMB. I cannot seriously spasm how amazing this product is so I will save all my energy and excitement for a review of the product.

Cute gift packages, ME WANTS THEM ALL!

With my Doll Olga.

With the sweet Natalie.

Fellow bloggers chatting away and me paparazzin' the shit out of the moment. The smiley face person wished to remain anonymous :P Caught half of Stavroula's head lol.

Getting pampered with a hand massage with the new Beautifying Oils. Shitty iPhone 4 pics (Thanks Deppy for the pics anyhow :P lol). Only 4S baby all the way!

After the event me and the girls had the opportunity to catch up and have some fun. We went to Showroom in Kolonaki for drinks and something to eat where my good pal Panos Fasoulis is the chef there. Below is what he prepared for me and everything was delish!

Green salad with prosciutto-melon-walnuts-mozzarella,  fresh bread bun with garlic butter & chocolate tart with fresh raspberries.

The peeps at The Body Shop gave us this amaze goodie bag -- such a sweet gesture from them! I was psyched to get so many Moringa products cause it's my favorite scent from their line, seriously heaven bottled up. I will do seperate reviews on these products as well as on some other things that I bought at the store while I was there.

The blogger goodie bag: Moringa Shower Gel, Moringa Body Butter, Moringa Beautifying Oil, Vitamin E Face Mist.

Again thank you Body Shop for the lovely event and for being so hospitable! 

Kisses Dolls!
