Last Friday was a casual day for me so I wanted a luminous and natural makeup look but since later in the evening I needed to go to a party I decided to intensify my look with a vibrant fuchsia lip. I was missing my MustaeV Nude Eyeshadow Quad for a few weeks and luckily I found that day so I need it to use it right away since it just came back from an announced vacation. 🙂 I didn’t want to go and apply a colorful makeup in the morning as I knew it will be a long day, especially one that will take longer into the night so I preferred something more nude and natural that will make me look fresh and rested even after 8 PM. This is what I have come up with and you can see on my Instagram how I looked during that evening and how well my makeup lasted throughout the day.
Take a look bellow and find out all about the products I’ve used for this makeup look along with their reviews. Continue Reading
Lancome L’Absolu Rouge new lipstick collection impressed me with the new packaging and variation of colors long before they launched in the stores. I couldn’t helped putting Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge on my wishlist since this is one of their iconic lipstick shades, a symbol of accomplishment, a rare and precious pink, like a pure moment of happiness. I bought it from Douglas perfumery with a 20% discount for being a beauty card owner and I honestly couldn’t imagine it will swatch pink since it look more like a red in the tube. I already had a beautiful violet shade with a sheer finish (Lancome Impertinente L’Absolu Rouge review) from the same range and I wanted a rosy pink hue, something that will look vibrant yet classy at the same time and with a cream finish, definitely a cream finish with a natural sheen.
Where to buy:
U.S. – Now at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and online @lancome-usa.com

Since NYX opened its first store here in Bucharest Park Lake Mall I honestly got to try out a lot more products than I used too, some of them sent for consideration and others that I bought myself. To tell you the truth I thought I’d not be using NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand anytime soon as it was at the bottom of my review list and somehow I had a feeling that I wouldn’t be impressed by this product. One day while I was in a hurry and reaching out for a new lipstick shade from my Hello Kitty bucket (this is where I keep my lip products that are waiting to be tested & reviewed) I stumble upon this concealer which I obviously misplaced. So since it was already sitting right there I thought, OK let’s give it an early try and see what it can do. This is one drugstore product that really impressed me so I thought it definitely needs to be reviewed ASAP.
Where to buy:
U.S. – Now at ULTA and @nyxcosmetics.com

A while ago I decided to pick something more vibrant from MustaeV and try out some colorful eyeshadows, just to get out of my comfort zone where pink, purple and nudes where everywhere. So I decided to try out MustaeV Gumball Eyeshadow among other shades that I told you about HERE. I know I’m not wearing a blue colors so often but I’m trying to put some color into my makeup looks this season, as I’m sure you’ve seen me recently wearing a deep blue smoky makeup (tutorial).

I’m crazy over hot pink shades like Urban Decay Anarchy Vice Lipstick over here so since I already had the Urban Decay Anarchy 24/ 7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (review, swatches) I said why not get the matching lip color as well.
