Air Blue Makeup Look

Hello sweeties!

I got the courage to try something different this time, just for the sake of beauty and inspired by the new Melkior Indian Summer 2015 Collection (info, photos).

I hope you’ll enjoy my Air Blue Summer Makeup Look and if you wanna check out the products I’ve used take a look after the cut.

Melkior Air Blue Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Melkior Air Blue Eyeshadow is one of those shades meant for summer, especially in a season where every brand is releasing a makeup collection based on blue shades. I admit, blue is a shade I hardly use in my makeup, most of you already noticed by now that I’m using blue, green or yellow especially for tutorials but I know is a popular color that many can’t live without.

Melkior Air Blue Eyeshadow (27.00 Lei for 3.2 g/ 0.11 oz) is a light medium pastel marine blue with a subtle satin finish. It has a good color payoff and delivers a pigmented shade even without a makeup primer. I tested it over Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer and that beautiful satin finish is more intense, which makes Air Blue a great summer shade. Continue Reading

Melkior Ozone Classic Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Melkior Ozone Classic Lipstick is a new shade, hardly called a classic as in my opinion would definitely match the taste of an extrovert woman, one that likes out of the ordinary lip shades and is not afraid to embrace the summer in crazy colors. If you’ve seen Melkior Indian Summer 2015 Collection (info, photos) you know what the brand delivers for this hot season and you know this new makeup line is not for those who are color shy.

Melkior Ozone Classic Lipstick (39.90 Lei for 4.5 g / 0.16 oz) is a light cool toned pastel lilac. It has a super light and creamy formula, which doesn’t dry out the lips and feels almost like a colored lip balm. Ozone is definitely a shade that not everyone is ready to wear. Being such a light tone lilac it kind of washes out my features, I have a light skin tone and it doesn’t complement my complexion. Continue Reading

ACM Sebionex Foaming Gel Review, Photos, Swatch

Hello beauties!

I heard others talking about Magnifique Skin‘s products last year and I got interested in find out more about this brand only recently as I discovered their ACM dermato skincare range. I received ACM Sebionex Foaming Gel a couple of months back and I didn’t get to use it until last month as I wanted to finish my other washing gel first. You know I’m obsessed more over skincare products rather than makeup and I don’t want to test or just put any product on my face. I carefully select only the products that I consider are right for my skin needs and I’m never interested in mass market products.
