Illamasqua Summer 2014 Makeup Collection has been available for almost a month now and if earlier I gave you a quick preview with swatches & photos now I want to talk to you about my new color obsession which is Illamasqua Forbidden Matte Lip Liquid. I got Forbidden earlier this week and I’ve already wore it two time which made it pretty easy to include it in my top 3 favorite summer lip shades.
Now @illamasqua.com, Illamasqua Locations and Sephora
Illamasqua Forbidden Matte Lip Liquid (£18.50/ $34.88 for 4 ml/ 0.14 fl oz) is officially described as sensual pink. It’s a bright, medium cool-toned pink with blue undertones but it leans a bit towards a lilac color. It’s truly an intense color, almost like a neon but without being very harsh so anyone can wear it from light to medium and dark skin tones. Continue Reading
I’m really excited to share with you my review about MAC Kelly Yum-Yum Lipstick that I purchased yesterday. This is one of the four limited edition shades from MAC Kelly Osbourne Summer 2014 Collection (info, promo photos) which is launching next week online in the U.S. and late in the summer in Europe and other international countries. Since I saw the sneak peek photos and later on the promo visuals I know that I had to get my hands on this lipstick shade as it’s truly an intense and pigmented color, perfect for summer and definitely adorn by all pink lipstick lovers out there.

MAC Kelly Yum-Yum Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is officially described as a “bright blue pink with a satin finish. It’s an intense and bright cool toned fuchsia pink with blue undertones with a hint of magenta and a satin finish. For me it was love at first sight which grown into a real excitement when I saw the color was rich and opaque on the lips with a creamy consistency which made the lipstick glide easily and effortlessly across the lips.

Illamasqua Summer 2014 Collection (info, promo photos) has been launched at the beginning of this month and I got a few products which I’ve been testing and wearing for the past few days. The collection is pretty small as it contains only three new Matte Lip Liquids shades and a couple of Velvet Blushers as well as the new Matte Veil, a long lasting shine free makeup base that I got in sample size along with the Hydra Veil Rehydrating Gel.
I personally love the entire collection as all the products came in very bright and pigmented shades, perfect for summer when we want to wear corals, peachy, orange and pinks.

Exactly one year ago Gucci made an announcement that really got us intrigued and excited as I posted in the sneak peek back then. Now we can finally take a first look at what seems to be the first Gucci Makeup Collection which will be hitting counters this fall. I expected a truly elegant and classy packaging and this is what Gucci delivers, black and gold cases with the famous GC logo.

MAC Alluring Aqua Summer 2014 Collection (info / promo photos) has been on the counters for a while in U.S. but only this week it became available in Romania as well. This week at the event hosted by MAC Cosmetics for this new collection I managed to take photos, play a little bit with the new products and do some swatches. The packaging is really really pretty, a metallic turquoise with a water drops that gives a fresh look to all the products and obviously this little extravagance will be reflected in the products’ price as they do cost a bit more than usual. The collection is mostly based on nudes, gold, bronzed peaches and brick shades but also some dark and intense violets, burgundy and plums.
It’s truly worth checking it out as it would be impossible not to find at least one favorite shade of lipgloss, lipsticks or eyeshadows which are to die for but also the cheek products. Unfortunately here in Romania the collection is incomplete as some of the products are missing: Soul Serenade Eyeshadow, Enchanted One Matte Lipstick, Shimmerfish Nail Lacquer, Alluring Aquatics Makeup Bag and the two Extra Dimension Blushes.
