Essence Kalinka Beauty Collection Spring 2014

Hello pretties!

Starting early January 2014 Essence will launch Kalinka  Beauty Collection, a real fun and cheerful line in peachy, orange and turquoise shades. Like the name suggest Essence draws inspirations for this collection from the Russian folklore and includes a purse as the cute Matryoshka doll. I have Russian genes from my mother’s side and I have lots of these Russian dolls at home and I even remember playing with them a lot when I was little.


Modern Matryoshka: essence is travelling to the land of traditions and beauty with the new trend edition “kalinka beauty”. Folklore patterns and lace adorn the designs of the beauty pieces and are combined with a bright color scheme of warm red, orange, apricot, beige, brown, green and brilliant blue. In addition to focusing on the eyes, lips, face and nails, this trend edition has another special must-have in store for you: the cute Matryoshka – the world-famous Russian doll and the ultimate souvenir – is embodied in the shape of a unique purse. The single lashes in black, green and red also ensure an eye-catching look. Welcome to Russia… with essence!

RBR Sweet Excess Glassy Gloss in Crisp Sorbet – Review, Swatches & Photos

Hello sweeties!

Today I want to talk to you about Rouge Bunny Rouge Excess Glassy Gloss in #055 Crisp Sorbet which is a beautiful natural shade that is been often on my lips when I want just a simple and natural makeup look. I believe this was a limited edition shade as I don’t see it available anymore


Think of lusciously ripe fruit dipped in the shiniest of honeys. Your lips will be plumped to a mouth-watering fullness, and a lavish dream-star shine. Irresistible. Like a scrumptious dessert that cheers you to the bones just by inhaling it, these glassy glosses radiate spicy sweetness and utterly intoxicating decadence. All of these candy drops of colour are heaped with exotic ingredients, and some abound with minute pearlised particles to sparkle your lips with glittering bejewelled effects. People will gaze at you with shiny- eyed infatuation, longing that you will possibly get…a…little…bit…closer. Continue Reading

Cold Winter Nights Makeup Look

Hello beauties!

I know too much time has passed since I’ve posted a makeup look but that is going to chance now and I will do my best to post at least one every week. I created this look this Thursday night before I went clubbing and I named it Cold Winter Nights because here winter has already began and the first snow has fallen. I used mostly MAC products but Senna and Urban Decay was also among the eyeshadow I’ve used.


If you want to find out more about this look then take the jump and check out what products I used for face, eyes and lips. Continue Reading

Kinetics Graffiti Quick Nail Polish – Review, Swatches & Long-Lasting Test

Hello sweeties!

I want to share with you my review about Kinetics Graffiti Quick nail polish, probably my favorite shades of this season and one of the new polishes of Kinetics Urban Legend Collection Fall Winter 2013 (swatches & photos). As much as I love to wear pink when the cold season comes I tend to prefer more darker shades.




Kinetics Graffiti Quick Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a very dark navy blue with a luscious finish and a creamy formula. This shade is so dark that most times it can easily be confused with a black nail polish but you can distinguish its real color only close-up. The consistency is well balanced like most of Kinetics’ formulas from this collection so I can say that it’s creamy and it glides easily and evenly on the nail. Continue Reading
