MAC Tan Pigment Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I’m catching up on my MAC reviews and this time I want to share with you my thoughts on MAC Tan Pigment, a gorgeous shade that recently used in my makeup looks. I own quite a few MAC pigments but for some reason I never reviewed them and only shared them in my makeup tutorials. This is going to change as I’ve decided to share with you from now on my favorite MAC products that I’ve used for years and repurchase with every chance I got.

Sisley Cherry Phyto-Lip Twist Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

The other day, thanks to a friend I got the new Sisley Phyto-Lip Twist (info, promo photos) in No.06 Cherry which is one of the six new tinted balms launched at the beginning of spring. If you haven’t tried a tinted balm before you should expect the color of a lipstick with the shine of a lip gloss.

No Makeup Makeup Look

Hello beauties!

You know me, I prefer a natural kind of makeup, something that is very easy to achieve, especially when you are a hurry but also the kind of no makeup makeup look that makes others think your skin is flawless without even trying. On a daily basis I prefer this type of look which can be realized in less than 5 minutes.

MAC Playland Collection Swatches

Hello sweeties!

MAC Playland Collection (color story & promo photos) was released internationally last month so I’m sure you had time to check it out but I was only able to see in person a few days ago when I visited the only MAC Store where this collection is available. Unfortunately I found the display to be incomplete as some of the products did not arrive while others have been already sold out from the very first days.

MAC-Playland-Lipsticks-Review

Like the name itself suggests this is playful collection, containing bright shades like pink, yellow, blue, green and orange but also a few repromotes. Most of the products are available in limited edition but there are a few new entries as well. In Romania the chromagraphic lip pencils are not available as well as two of the pigments in Neo-Orange and Golden Olive which are anyway repromotes. I actually own a sample size of Neo-Orange and it’s a very bright orange with a matte finish.
