BEAUTY November 25 2015 Comment

Despite the rain I had so much fun yesterday! I was invited to go on a Christmas Gift Tour and visit the stores of Swarovski and L’Occitane in Amsterdam to view all the new products and Christmas gifts for 2015. Let me tell you, such a tour is not good for your wallet because it made me very, very greedy ;).

We started at L’Occitane where we were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco and, ooh la la, macarons. The macarons were served with a special reason, because L’Occitane recently collaborated with Parisian master patissier Pierre Hermé. Famous for his daring and exciting choice of ingredients. Together with Olivier Baussan, founder of the French Beauty brand, he created a line of beauty products and two special fragrances. The ingredients, bottles and packaging are all inspired by macarons. All the products smell so delicious, you would almost eat them! If Santa is reading this; my favorite product of this line is the ‘Jasmin – Immortelle – Néroli’ Eau de Toilette ;).

Second stop was at Café Paris, where we were treated to a quick touchup with the eye makeup products from Christian Faye. The brand is specialized in eye makeup like eyebrow powder, eyebrow stencils, mascara, eyebrow gel and eyeliner. I saw a really beautiful glimmering eyeshadow palet with 4 colors to create the ultimate smokey eye. Great for a Christmas or New Years Eve party!

Third stop was at Swarovski where I immediately felt enchanted by all the sparkles in the store. This Christmas it’s all about the bestselling ‘Stardust Deluxe’ necklaces and bracelets. This sparkling jewelry collection is now ultra-glamorous because the deluxe version has extra sparkle! It features a premium metallic fishnet tube, filled with rose gold crystals. My personal pick for Christmas is the Stardust Deluxe necklace because it can also be worn as a double wrap bracelet. So really it’s two gifts in one ♥.

Below you can see some impressions of my day!
