NYX Havana Soft Matte Lip Cream Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

A new NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream shade that I’ve tested this week is No.26 Havana. I’m actually intrigued by this product which is neither lipstick nor lip gloss, that goes on silky smooth when applied and sets to a matte finish. NYX offers a variety of colors for this product, but especially nude shades if you are a fan of those. Havana Soft Matte Lip Cream looks intense and it’s more evening or night time appropriate so if you want to dip your lips in the color of intense then keep on reading for more details.

Make Up For Ever C207 Artist Rouge Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick collection for fall 2016 looked like a read deal to me. They come up with a variety of shades ranging from nudes to hot pinks, reds and edgy colors like green, blue and black, while they kept the finishes in just matte and cream. I had my eyes set on the pink tones but I wanted to check out a couple of nudes as well. Unfortunately at Sephora they don’t have more than just a couple of shades so at my first visit, after doing some swatches I leaned towards C206, a gorgeous bright, magenta pink. Later on when I stepped into a different Sephora store where there were more colors, I found MUFE C207 Artist Rouge lipstick absolutely irresistible so I picked it right up.

NYX London Soft Matte Lip Cream Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Now that NYX has opened its first store in Bucharest (it was about time, wouldn’t you say?) I got a chance to try out some of its famous lip products, swatch and play with the colors I like right in the store and not having to settle for online swatches and reviews anymore. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream is a lip product that has been receiving so much attention in the States since it launched, that I knew I had to try it out myself. I mean there’s a variety of nude shades when it comes to Soft Matte Lip Cream that you can definitely find your favorite. These are drugstore products so the price is considerably cheap to make you wanna buy more than just one shade.

Lancome Impertinente L’Absolu Rouge Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I knew I’ll be hooked on Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Collection (info, photos) right when I heard the brand was renewing its entire lipstick collection, offering not only new shades but different finishes ranging from sheer to matte and cream. When the collection hit counters I immediately went to Sephora and showed you swatches of lipsticks that were on my wishlist. The packaging is absolutely amazing, just a fine click to open it and the variety of colors hardens your purchase decision. At the Lancome Trends Seminar which took place later that week I could took a much closer look at the new L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks and play with the textures and colors so after that I knew the colors that would make my wishlist. Lancome No.325 Impertinente is one of my favorites and I was so happy to see it in the goodie bag after the event.

Lancome Impertinente lipstick is part of the sheer colors section as it doesn’t come totally opaque on the lips but I wouldn’t quite call it sheer after all.
