MAKING (MAKE-UP) MAGIC WITH MARSALA

When the Pantone Colour of 2015 was announced late last year I was honestly a bit disappointed. Marsala is a rich reddish brown colour; redder than chocolate & browner than burgundy, but not quite maroon. My initial thought was that it looks old-fashioned. And who wouldn’t when you look at these celeb pics from the 90’s? But […]

I will admit it. I am biased when it comes to German products. They all just seem to be brilliant. Be it appliances (yay for Philips), cars (think Mercedes… Audi… BMW… Volkswagen…), skincare (Nivea, Eucerin) & fashion (Boss, Adidas, Puma). The list goes on.
