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.
