YSL Touche Eclat Foundation Brush

Hello beauties!

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation Brush is one of the newness from YSL this spring 2016 season. Sold separately from the new YSL Touche Éclat Foundation, this new foundation brush has an exclusive Y-shaped reservoir. The first time I used this type of foundation brush was last year and it from By Terry but I can’t say I like the idea or I became of fan. Somehow it doesn’t seem to hygienic to me, but well that’s just my opinion.

Lancome Juicy Shaker Spring 2016

Hello beauties!

Just the other day when I reviewed Lancome Nuit Mordoree Hypnose Palette (swatches, photos) I told you how much I wanted to be surprised by a new product, a new concept and some vibrant shades. Well that didn’t took long, did it?! Lancome Juicy Shaker sounds like a troublemaker: a completely new “shake it” method with a two-phase formula containing pigments and caring oils, and a unique cushion applicator. I surely hope that 2016 will be the year for Lancome as the new Juicy Shaker lip products are totally amazing.

International Launch Date – Spring 2016 (TBA)

There will be 20 shades available and guess what? You can’t say you haven’t found your favorite or the formula and pigmentation is not right for you as Lancome Juicy Shaker combines bright, clear color with adjustable intensity and sating gloss finish with a non-sticky formula. How is that sound?…to be able to build up your lip color coverage just like you would with your foundation? This way I would wear my favorite color all day long…a bit sheer and more natural looking in the morning and bright and vivid in the evening. I’m already super excited about these, can’t you tell? :)

MAC Personal Statement Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I got MAC Personal Statement Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick (unboxing video) right before Christmas, as a present from me to myself along with a bunch of other high-end products that I’m going to review shortly. I’m not usually excited about matte finishes but I was about this gorgeous color. In my video you can see me wearing this shade and since then I got to wear this new matte liquid lipstick a few times more and my first impression changed a little bit so that’s why I decided to tell you my full experience in this review.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss Chinese New Year Lipstick

Hello beauties!

With the celebration of The New Chinese Year of the Monkey seems like the high end brand have started to release a limited edition item. So far I’ve seen only palettes and I’m so delightful that Guerlain has choose to come up with this limited edition Kiss Kiss The Chinese New Year Lipstick. Guerlain fans will surely be thrilled by this release as the packaging and I mean the lipstick case is still gold but a little bit different than usual while the color appears to be a fiery coral.

Hello beauties!

I’ve wanted MustaeV Scales Eyeshadow to be part of my collection for quite a while now, as I’m trying to expand my collection of white shades. White eye shadows with different tones and reflexes are so versatile and there’s no makeup look where I won’t reach out for a shade like this, either to blended in the crease or to apply it on my brow bone, on the inner corner of my lid or even use it as a highlighter as MustaeV Scales right here.
