Lately I’ve been testing and playing with lots of lip products with different formulas, finishes and colors from the sheerest one to the brightest and most pigmented. One of those products is Essence Smooth Berry Stay Matt Lip Cream, a product which entered the permanent collection in spring 2013 (info, photos, prices). After wearing this shade I’m really sorry I haven’t tried sooner and I let it sit in my makeup drawer for so long.
Now at Essence counters, DM shops and local drugstores.
Essence Smooth Berry Stay Matt Lip Cream (€2.00 for 4 ml/ 0.13 fl oz) is a medium deep cool toned raspberry red with slightly blue undertones. It’s a rich, bright and vibrant shade that looks fully opaque on the lips delivering a velvet matt finish. Continue Reading

As you know summer season approaches so today I want to show you a couple of Golden Lip Glosses that will look great on every skin tone, especially if you have tanned skin. These shades that I picked will make your lips look fuller as they have an intense shiny finish without being sticky or tacky but they will also give you a natural summery look. You can wear pair a golden lip gloss with a natural makeup, an Arabic look or when you choose to wear peachy and coppery shades.
Since summer is just around the corner I like to wear glosses with a semi-sheer color coverage, with an intense shine and lots of golden and silver particles. I’m loving that mirror-like effect on the lips, that makes them look fuller and plumed. If you have smaller lips, wearing a light lip gloss shade with an intense glossy finish and shimmer will really help you create the effect of bigger and fuller lips. Continue Reading

Here is a new makeup look, something that I wore yesterday evening on a night out with my best friend. It has been a while since I haven’t done a makeup using only pigments so this time I’ve combined colors from Inglot and MAC. This is quite an easy look so you really don’t need much experience in handling makeup brushes to be able to achieve it. I’m pretty sure this combination of colors will look great on those with brown and hazel eyes.
Keep reading after the jump if you want to know what products I used for the entire look. Continue Reading
