Mascara, Blush & Gloss in Case of Emergency

In case of emergency

Thank God, it is weekend and finally I am feeling better after my stomach flu. A wonderful girlfriend of mine had a little surprise from New York for me. This very cute cosmetic bag. The perfect accessory to store my emergency must-have beauty products.

Sisley Phyto Blush


It is a miracle what a little blush can do for you, add a little colour to your cheeks and you look immediately healthier. The light PHYTO BLUSH ÉCLAT by Sisley works wonders with micronized pigments and light-reflecting powders for a soft focus effect. It includes the extracts of gardenia, linden, and mallow to soften plus rosehip and ginkgo biloba to protect the skin. So it is not just another pretty blush. It is one with benefits. Available in five colours from peach and pink berry, to pink rose, mango and pink coral. Personally speaking, I also adore its “zebra” print design that is nice and flat.
My favourite shade: 5 Pinky Coral

CHF 74.-

Lipsgloss Phyto


Sisley‘s new collection of ultra shiny colours PHYTO-LIP GLOSS have a 3D pouty effect. Active vegetable ingredients help to nourish, moisturize, soothe, heal and protect the lips. Available in seven non sticky shades. Yet again, a lipgloss with benefits.
My favourite shade: 4 Fuchsia

CHF 47.- each



And last but not least, add a little mascara to finish off your 2 minute emergency beauty routine. I became a huge fan of MASCARA VOLUME GREEN PRIDE by UNE. A new invention on planet lashes, a mascara that brings you volume that is as good for your lashes as it is beautiful. Its organic formula is certified by Ecocert and lasts for up to 16 hours. But all it takes to remove it is a simple micellar water cleanser or cleansing milk and lotion! The waxes dissolve gently and totally, leaving no residue on lashes and causing no irritation to eyes. Available in brown and black. A mascara with benefits for you and the environment.
My favourite shade: V01 Black

CHF 26.90

The emergency beauty formula: Mascara, blush + gloss = Looking so much better in 2 minutes.

LoL, Sandra
