I Love Cosmetics Summer 2014 Collection

Hello beauties!

Earlier this month I had the most delicious and best smelling experience when I was invited to check out the new I Love Cosmetics Summer 2014 Collection. I’m honestly telling you it can’t get any sweeter than this when you are surrounded by cupcakes, macaroons, jelly and all the kinds of colorful candies but since I gave up sweets a while ago and started a new life style I found my comfort in the new I Love body care products which smell delicious. My body can experience any sweetness and candy or fruit fragrance thanks to the new shower gels, body lotions, shower cremes and bubble baths and I can still keep my word regarding my diet.

YSL Le Teint Encre de Peau for Fall 2014

Hello beauties!

YSL will launch next month Le Teint Encre de Peau, and that sounds so good because I’m one of those women who is looking for a light texture in a foundation, that delivers a natural finish and feels weightless and long-lasting throughout the day. I want to apply my foundation and not worrying about retouching my makeup for the rest of the day. The new YSL Fusion Ink Foundation seems to have been created for modern women that want something that’s quick and easy and don’t have time to invest in a long beauty regimen.

Makeup Academy Cheeky Lip Boom Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Makeup Academy partnered with Alexandra Burke (X-Factor winner) a few years back to create the Lip Bloom, which is a new 4 in 1 product that I purchased last year. Personally I see it simple: a lipstick and a lip gloss and we all can take it from here and create our own looks. It’s up to you if you want to wear the lipstick on its own for a matte lip color or you want to layer the gloss in the center of the lip to create the impression of volume or apply it all over the lips for a glossy finish. I personally would wear the lip gloss separate but that’s a different story when it comes to this particular shade.

Donna Karan DKNY My NY Fragrance

Hello cuties!

Donna Karan presents her new DKNY My NY fragrance that will hit counters at the end of summer and honestly I’m really happy to smell a new scent other than those limited editions DKNY Be Delicious that we saw lately. I love the new heart-shaped bottle which expresses the modern urban spirit of Donna’s beloved city. Rita Ora is featured in the ad campaign and even though Rita did some print campaigns for DKNY ready-to-wear and Rimmel, this is her first fragrance campaign.

She comes across as very strong, and that’s what I love about her line. It’s a very confident, energetic line and it’s about women who speak their minds. The fragrance celebrates New York City, which is unlike anyplace else in the world. I love the idea of being part of a campaign that captures the spirit of New York and the stories of women here, passionate about their dreams. – said Rita

Catrice-Summer-2014-It-Pieces

Best of. The international fashion shows are true platforms of inspiration. An exciting mix of the most diverse components: the personal signature of each designer, trend-oriented cuts and fabrics as well as colours that reflect the spirit of the times. The make-up complements the designs whilst setting impulses at the same time. Once the innovations are available, the run for the must-haves begins. No matter whether you are looking for a popular ombré look, soft nudes or a hip matt effect – these trends are an absolute must in both the beauty and the fashion worlds alike. In keeping with the eye-catchers of the season, the Limited Edition “It Pieces” by Catrice offers the beauty highlights for Autumn/Winter: Lash Extension Volume Mascara and Lash Boost Extension Fibres for essential XXL-lashes, Velvet Matt Eyeshadows for unique, silky-matt results and the Tinted Lip Glow Balm as well as the Beautifying Lip Smoother for lots of pampering care in a modern, natural look. And the nails are currently sparkling with luxurious 3D effects. Beauty and Fashion – a perfect match by Catrice.

I’m sure that lovely Romanian visitors have noticed the mentioning of our country in the list above and yes, this is the official info I received from Cosnova International Team but without the confirmation of what it should be Catrice Romanian Team. Catrice was expected to arrive in Romania for quite a while now, and last year at an official meeting I managed to get a confirmation that indeed the brand will become available most probably in 2015 so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this launch. I will post more once I’ll receive new info. Continue Reading

This included important details such as adding extra luminosity to the skin and subtly lifting the lashes – it’s all about natural glamour that’s so modern and relevant to today.” – Pat McGrath
