This is HER - Zadig & Voltaire

This month saw a new perfume by Zadig & Voltaire. 
Zadig & Voltaire: a Paris-born and quintessentially French fashion house, whose name is a reference to the nickname of founder Thierry Gillier, ferryman of the Voltairian mindset.


Easy wear. Easy life. Easy luxury. This is Zadig!  

Rock-Art-Paris inspiration

 Zadig & Voltaire combines Rock, Art and Paris to create the This is HER perfume.

It is an attitude of restlessness. Being rock means being yourself. Free, sure of your rebellious elegance, good in your own skin. Just one rule: Always be ready for anything! With a degree from the Parsons School of Design in New York and a passion for art collecting, founder Thierry Gillier draws his resolutely modern and rock-infused inspiration from contemporary art.Zadig, aka Thierry Gillier: the man who exports Voltaire to the four corners of the Earth, a challenge accomplished and echoed in the brand’s reputation, the literary ferryman of French flair, from one generation to another, where casual and serious meet, the contrast of depth and lightness, modern, classic.

“The bottle design is elegant and simple, inspired from contemporary art. We wanted to focus on a minimalist design, black and white, with this symbol of opposition and attraction between men and women.” Cecilia Bönström - Artistic Director, Zadig & Voltaire
This is HER! A woody, heady floral fragrance created by Sidonie Lancesseur and Michel Almairac (Robertet)

White. True. Parisian elegance wrapped in sensuous silk and cashmere. A young, restless beauty jauntily spritzes a floral bouquet of Arabian jasmine brightened with pink peppercorn. A sweet with a rock spirit made of chestnut and vanilla. As free as her looks, her femininity is reaffirmed with an intense, woody and milky base note: sandalwood, the Zadig & Voltaire signature. Confident, unpredictable, irresistible. This is HER!

“For THIS IS HER! fragrance I imagined a rock group playing a furious song in a Parisian apartment.” Michel Almairac (Robertet)

Have you tried out this perfume yet?

Summer 2017 Beauty Favourites

Summer is almost over, however, here in Malta we still are still blessed with some gorgeous sunny days. This time we decided to team up with some of Maltese Blogger Girls to bring you a variety of  post as a collaboration! There is also a chance to win the new Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette! Make sure you stay tuned to Pocalocca and to like all the other pages for a chance to win!!

My post (as the title implies) is about my favourite beauty things from Summer 2017. I hadn't had time to really play with new stuff this summer as I was finishing up my thesis and my Masters degree course. Anyways, here they are below!


I have quite an combination to oily based skin type. This Avene Cleanance Mat was just a perfect day cream for the hot summer months. PS: it is excellent as a makeup base too!


MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Nice 'n Spicy was my go to lipliner this Summer. Perfect under any lip colour and is quite creamy and long lasting too!


Summer calls for SPF. This Inglot Makeup Base SPF 20 is just perfect! Makeup runs smoothly on the skin and stays all day!


Liquid Lipsticks have been an essential part these past couple of years. This Inglot HD Lip tint has been a favourite of mine this summer. It lasts all day and it is not that drying either!


The essence Volume Stylist Lash Extension is not marked a waterproof, but, it doesn't smudge or smear or budge! I love how it makes my lashes black and long and va va voom!!


The essence liquid ink waterproof is my all time favourite liquid liner. It is perfect for summer. It dries out to a somewhat slightly matte finish but lasts all day! It is waterproof, very budget friendly, doesn't smudge or smear!


Last  but not least... This pretty and gorgeous face palette from Zoeva. The golden blush paired with the matte bronzer and golden highlight just screams gorgeousness!

Purple Collection Launch

A few days ago I accompanied Lara from Every Beauty Addict's Bible to the launch of a new outlet in Birkirkara - Purple. We arrived a bit early so we had plenty of time to take pictures and browse the clothes.

As you enter the shop you are immediately welcomed by Audrey Hepburn who is in my opinion a style icon. The shop is also very modernly designed with plenty of bright lights.



The collection is designed by Alexandra & Sergio who decided to open this store after leaving the UK and moving to Malta. The collection is made in Italy and it reflects the real passion and love for women's fashion. 
I can honestly say that as soon as we entered the store I was going to leave with an item for sure (ps. I left with 2 shhh!). The collection is made up of items which you are going to love for sure. They are very wearable but designed and made with a flair. There are dresses, tops, casual items which can be dressed up, and so much more. I urge you to visit the store as they have really good items! Below are some snapshots of the collection:


Check out the Purple's Facebook Page. And stay tuned for Outfit Posts coming up!

XOXOXO

Pupa Extreme Bronze Compact Powder Review

Pupa is one of my favourite makeup brands and I am always looking forward to trying out new products. One of the most recent summer launches is the new Extreme Bronze Compact Powder. I am very picky when it comes to bronzers. And let me tell you, this is one of my favourites!
The Pupa Extreme Bronze Compact Powder is dermatologically tests and poses low risk of allergies, it is non comedogenic and Paraben and fragrance free. This Bronzer makes the skin look nice and even. It has a very soft velvety texture with a natural matt finish.
It has a very fine texture and it blends on the skin like a dream, minimizing blemishes. This bronzer lasts a lot and the face stays mattified for hours. There are 4 shades available.

I love how natural this product can look on the face. It can definitely be built up to give a more tanned effect.
