[Dior] Lilas (#180)

I intended to show Lilas for a couple of days now but always something got in between, sunny wheather above all, and now I’m at my mother’s place again and also planning how to spend Japan Filmfest Hamburg, which is approaching. Flat rate ticket already secured. 😉 … Finally, here is Lilas. Pale lilac with shimmer.

[Essence] Lumosi

A winter polish, and a very special one, because my daughter had picked this shade. Lumosi has a lilac base, which is combined with hints of grey and pink, and it also contains pink shimmer. Hence an intestering and quite unique colour in my stash.

[China Glaze] Don’t Mesh With Me

Don’t Mesh With Me. In the first place: Cool name. It’s mainly glitter, lilac bits in a slightly blue-tinted base. Thus the effect is a bit iridescent.

However, Don’t Mesh With Me needed three coats to look opaque. It would be great for layering – will probably try this too, because overall, I like this colour.

Outdoors; we were on the way to “Japan Xmas”, a first-time Japanese Christmas market. They had so much Japanese stuff, everything ranging from sweets to DVDs, cute plushies, cosplay stuff (many people wore their cosplay outfits, there was even a competition), tons of food … which was popular, so very long queues. I would have loved a BEnto box or Japanese Crêpes, but no chance to get through. Thus we had mashed potato in a nearby deli, haha!

[A England] Waltz Of the Flowers

Waltz Of the Flowers (which I thought I had shown before). This is a pretty lilac holographic shade, also slightly iridescent.

Don’t get mistaken by the photos – we are in the middle of a heatwave now, which I had wished for when I actually took the pictures about a week ago. Two coats shown below.

We are finally in Lower Saxony at my mother’s place, and I am enjoying the garden view. Did you know that I was collecting high-end perfumes initially? (Guess I have not mentioned before.) That is, I have been collecting ballpens since school and am still after them. As for perfume, it all started with duty-free Chanel and then simply evolved. I had quite a collection which I also used (same as I’m applying my nail varnishes), but when I got pregnant I could not stand most scents any more, and that was when I either gave them away or also threw them away (what an idiot, I know) – and kept a few bottles. I should actually just have given them to my mother, which would have been a wiser choice.

I remembered my passion for perfume because I received a sample of Jil Sander Sun about two weeks ago, and this had been my favourite for the summer for a long time. Still loving it to bits. So much for this. 🙂

[A England] Kalinka

Kalinka – I realised that this was still in my drafts. The colour is silver-based with a hint of lilac and holographic glitter. Stunning!

Application was two coats and this first photo taken outside doesn’t do Kalinka justice.

Back in our flat. I like this colour; the lilac is definitely visible but still Kalinka matches most colours. I combined it with a floral dress, when we went to a little garden party last Saturday.
