I told you how excited I’m about the launch of MAC Pro Beyond Twisted Lash mascara a while ago and the more I know about this mascara the more I want to try it out as soon as possible. I admit I have never used such a mascara with a bendable wand in all directions and I’m so curious to see how different it is from the others and how my lashes will look like. On my Instagram account I posted before and after photos of someone who already used this mascara and the results were amazing.

The wait is over as finally MAC Vibe Tribe Summer 2016 Collection is being totally revealed. The first look at MAC Vibe Tribe from the other week is now transformed into the full collection with all the information and most expected photos. I know there’s been sneak peek photos filling social media accounts and this MAC summer 2016 makeup collection has been discussed as lot as there are many who don’t really agree with the packaging. Some of the shades look really appealing so it’s still worth giving it a try.
Lose control in lips painted reckless shades of red and coral, or a flash of gold. Let your eyes escape
reality in teal, cobalt, mandarin and charcoal, as free-spirited nails glisten in succulent tangerine and the perfect, buttery nude. Join the tribe. Feel the vibe.

Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Quads are quite familiar to me lately as the new #530 Adventurous is not the only one I’ve tried. Back in the fall I talked to you about Revlon Colorstay Seductive Eyeshadow Quad (review, swatches) a gorgeous combination of violet shades.

I remember Revlon Colorstay foundation as being the second foundation I used and even then, back in the days was named the best drugstore foundation. I know everyone recommended it as being the foundation that will amazingly hide all your skin imperfections, conceal everything and help you whenever you have a bad face day. I know teenagers are crazy for this foundation and even in my opinion is the best full coverage foundation that doesn’t make you look cakey or like you are wearing a mask.
The good news is that Revlon has updated its Colorstay Makeup foundation formula and has also renew the packaging launching the new product in a bottle that comes with a pump.
I have to admit that the old packaging was a downsize for me, as even though it was easy to shake the bottle in order to mix the product, I was not very fond of the idea of getting the liquid straight of the bottle.
In the past I tried the combination/ oily formula and it was a perfect match for my skin needs back then, as I used to work in the place where people smoked all the time and my complexion needed some extra protection (that’s the reason why I started to use foundation at the age of 25).

EOS Lip Balm was well known to me since a few years back when I got one of their limited edition release, a pink one with white stripes. Recently EOS Lip Balms have become available in Romania at Douglas perfumeries so I got to try a new flavor again so I decided it’s worth reviewing it. What makes EOS lip balms so special in my opinion are two things: their ingredients and the packaging.
EOS describes them as all-natural lip balms as they are 95% organic, 100% natural and paraben and petrolatum free but they also sell the promise of “bursting with moisture”, not to mention the different flavors of strawberry, blueberry, peach, mint, lemon and more.

EOS Lip Balm ($3.29 / 29.00 Lei for 7 g) is available in a range of 11 flavors and the one I got and I’ll review today is Summer Fruit. I’m a bit crazy about lip balms and there’s always one sitting near me on my working desk as I like to moisturize my lips during the day, with any occasion I get when I’m not wearing lipstick or lip gloss.

I got Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Cherry Blossom fragrance right at the beginning of March, as it’s a fresh floral scent, just perfect for spring. The smell of cherry flowers is strongly felt in this fragrance and it could easily represent the perfect fragrance choice for a casual day or spring.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette spray vaporisateur was launched back in 2012 and comes in a colorful pink bottle decorated with white cherry blossom. I sense it as a light but romantic scent with luminous citruses, tea notes, cherry blossom and tree, enriched with woody warmth and sensuality.
Where to buy:
Romania – Now at Prestige Boutique, Debenhams, Douglas and online @boutique-produsecosmetice.ro
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Cherry Blossom ( 100 ml / 3.3 fl oz Eau de Toilette for 96.00 Lei / 50 ml / 1.7 fl oz for 69.00 Lei) is the kind of fragrance that I would wear on a weekend, romantic date or just a casual day when I feel the need for fresh and fruity accords. Continue Reading
MustaeV Peacock Eyeshadow is the final shade that will complete my beloved MustaeV 24 Eyeshadow Palette (review, photos) and it’s so easy to depot it (video, tutorial). I was so surprised to see that MustaeV Peacock is a perfect dupe for Urban Decay BlackHeart eyeshadow (review, swatches) but has a more reddish tint. It’s a very elegant and versatile shade, the kind of eyeshadow that can be used on festive, dramatic and bold looks but also paired with cream eyeshadows and colorful bases to create a different appearance.
Where to buy:

MustaeV Peacock Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 1.8 g / 0.06 oz) is officially described as a dark brown shadow, with a hint of red, infused with a brilliant deep red, dark burgundy and gold glitter that provides a velvety smooth application. Continue Reading
