MAC Good Luck Trolls Summer 2016 Collection

Hello beauties!

Today the entire Instagram was flooded with photos of the new MAC Good Luck Trolls Summer 2016 Collection. I even posted a couple of sneak peeks and swatches of the new lip products from MAC Good Luck Trolls Collection so do check those out if you haven’t done it yet. I remember I used to have a couple of these mini versions of wild-haired dolls when I was in second grade and I used to pin them on top of my crayons and pens, so much fun! The entire collection looks like a splash of color, very bright and intense, definitely a summery 2016 makeup collection…but it seems that it will arrive in Europe at the beginning of fall.

Hair we go! The wild-haired dolls of your youth bring their rainbow tufts, bejeweled bellies and lucky charms to M·A·C Good Luck Trolls — a crazy-hued collection as silly as the characters themselves. Being a troll has never been so glamorous!

Savage Garden Lips for Spring Summer 2016

Hello lovelies!

This season I’ve in the mood more than ever to wear violet lips. I don’t know where this desire of wearing dramatic, edgy lip colors came from, knowing me as a lover of sweet pink and nude shades, but I guess this is the new me…at least this season. I purchased a few shade of Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion and since I already review them, I though it was about time to show you a complete makeup look, where I’m wearing them.

Lately I’ve been low on articles regarding makeup looks and tutorials but I promise to make it up to you guys, and catch up, especially since I’ve done so many looks. It’s just that I was in a hurry most times, so I didn’t have time to take photos…but I promise to step up my game. Continue Reading

Estee Lauder Savage Garden Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion line was launched internationally back in August 2015 and includes a range of 16 permanent colors. Last month I got me two of the violet shades, so today I will share with you my impressions on Estee Lauder No.440 Savage Garden Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion. First of all I would like to mention that this color is not available in Romania, at least at Debenhams they didn’t have it. Usually not all the shades arrive here, but it’s such a pity for this one.

It has an amazing color payoff, being so pigmented, rich and deep that looks opaque in just one swipe. Continue Reading

Catrice Hey Nude Ultimate Colour Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

“I can never have too many nude lip shades!” I said to myself when I purchased Catrice Hey Nude Ultimate Colour Lipstick the other week. I wanted a new lipstick shade that would look very natural on me, a rosy nude that I could wear almost daily, during the first part of the day so while I was swatching all the permanent Catrice Ultimate Colour nude shades I stumble upon No.240 Hey Nude which went home with me in the end.

Catrice The Wizard Luminous Lips Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Catrice is one of those brands that I long for ever since I bought the first products on a trip to Germany more than 10 years ago. Since Catrice became available in Romania I often liked to check out their newness and since I have Prestige Boutique (local beauty drugstore – blv Iuliu Maniu, nr 59) near my place, I’m entering the shop pretty often to see what they brought new. The other week I was swatching some of the new Catrice and Essence lip products and I went home with this gorgeous Catrice No.170 The Wizard Luminous Lips Lipstick. It’s a gorgeous, luminous shade that I believe it will complement any skin tone, as I know it looks wonderful on light skin tones like me.

Catrice Shine Appeal Fluid Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I’m loving glosses anytime, especially during the warm season when the weather is nice, without any wind that will make the gloss stick to your hair. The other week while I was buying products from Essence and Catrice at Prestige Boutique, my local beauty drugstore, I received Catrice Shine Appeal Fluid Lipstick as a gift with purchase. Considering it is a lovely shade for spring, one that will go perfect with a day makeup, I started using the product right away so keep reading more for a full review and lip swatches.

Essence Honey Berry Lip Liner Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

For me Essence Lip Liners offers the best drugstore quality that you can find, so over the years I purchased and use so many colors. The other week I found myself at Prestige Boutique on the look-out for a new lip liner that will go with my newly purchased Estee Lauder True Liar Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion (review, swatches) that I told you about earlier today. So the closest matching shade that I found was Essence #15 Honey Berry Lip Liner that I’ll be reviewing today.

Estee Lauder True Liar Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

I had my eyes on Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potions since last summer when they launched internationally, but I admit that only last month I got to purchase a couple of shades. I don’t know what happened to me since last fall but I’m more into purples than pinks, so the shades I wanted to try first were #430 True Liar and #440 Savage Garden. I will review them separately and today I’ll start with the first one and show you even lip swatches. Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Liquid Lip Potion was launched as a permanent product with a variety of 16 colors. Not all of them are available in Romania (at least at Debenhams) so do check out your favorites in the store.
