Last Saturday I was at a Christening and so it was the perfect occasion to wear Orly Darkest Shadow nail lacquer. This shade was released last year as part of Orly Smoky Fall 2014 Collection (info, photos) and was exactly what I need for an elegant classy look that will go perfect with my simple black dress.

Orly Darkest Shadow Nail Lacquer ($8.50/ 45.00 Lei for 18 ml/ .6 fl oz) is described as a dark cherry but I see it more like a dark brown with lots of gold and copper shimmer. It is truly an intense color, very pigmented and fully opaque in one coat. It’s up to you if you want to layer the second coat but I wouldn’t do it as it looks perfect like this. Continue Reading

It’s time for more than a sneak peek for Dior Rouge Dior Brilliant, a new couture balm gloss line that was just released along with a few new Dior Vernis shades. The Dior couture pure shine liquid balm line features 12 shades that will subtly shape and brighten lips with precision thanks to the new single-dose applicator that dispenses the perfect amount of product onto the lips. It’s actually a liquid balm with a formula that contains a mix of 3 lipcare oils and a complex that teams vitamin E with an active ingredient known for reactivating collagen synthesis.
Dior women have something to smile about: beautifully enhanced and protected thanks to the properties of Rouge Dior Brillant’s fine oils, their lips now display the radiance of a new-generation gloss with a twofold shine and lipcare action. Rouge Dior Brillant tells a luminous story that began in 1981 when the house at 30 avenue Montaigne launched its first gloss, christened Rouge Brillant. It has now been reinvented in a liquid balm that becomes one with the lips, a real feat of radiance and finesse.

Have a look at the new Tongue Tickles shade of Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick that I got along with some other amazing spring 2015 makeup items last month. I’ve been wearing this shade a lot, mostly during the day as it’s such a beautiful and natural pink that gives your lips an instant fresh look. Even though it looks like a light coraly pink in the tube once you apply it on your lips it changes to a beautiful rosy white pink.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick in Tongue Tickless (€24.00/ $27.50/ £18.15 for 3.8 g / 0.13 oz) is officially described as a sheer, shiny pale carnation pink with a white shimmer. I see it as a light warm sweet pink with a white shimmer and intense shine. It’s definitely a luminous color that looks beautiful on the lips and even though it delivers quite a decent amount of coverage it still keeps a translucency. Tongue Tickless is the kind of shade that will complement any fair to light complexion as it doesn’t look too bright or intense, just perfect for a fresh pink lip, but will also fit those with medium complexions.
