Catrice Victorian Poetry Holiday 2016 Collection has a new twist from what I’ve seen so far in the new Christmas 2016 makeup collections. A clean and luxurious makeup collection, with lots of details embossed on the packaging, all the limited edition items were inspired by the extravagant Victorian era.
Simple Opulence. Magnificent decorations and detailed stucco ornaments are characteristic of the extravagant Victorian era. The Limited Edition “Victorian Poetry” awakens a yearning for the glamour of these bygone days. Many fashion designers are reinterpreting the luxurious elegance with slim-cut dresses and frill collars combined with modern, slightly transparent fabrics. These collections provide the inspiration for the Limited Edition, which is dominated by gentle apricot, warm nude and grey tones, lilac as well as berry shades.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to expand my Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Collection so I went shopping for new shades. I was aiming for a new hot pink and something more down to earth, a nude that would be wearable during the day. When I stopped by Sephora, I noticed that some of the shades I had on my list were sold out so I decided to try on Urban Decay Conspiracy Vice Lipstick with a metallic finish, one that would be new to my collection. I instantly fall in love with the color which you must admit is kinda special, since I don’t get to see a lot of brown shades like this everyday. 🙂

Everyone is mesmerized by the new MAC Mariah Carey Holiday 2016 Collection launching at the end of the year with that gorgeous glitter packaging. On Instagram everyone is hungry for new photos and sneak peeks of the upcoming MAC Mariah Carey 2016 items and I honestly can’t wait to hear that this collection will be launching in my country as well. There are mostly new shades, nothing too colorful or edgy, but the packaging itself and the patterns on the lipsticks and powders will make this limited edition collection sold out so fast. If last week I was teasing you with promo photos, now I’m back to show you some of the highlights this collection has to offer. I’m looking forward to posting the entire color story and close-up photos later this week.

This season everyone is crazy about matte lipsticks so I couldn’t miss the chance of blogging about the new Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks (14.20 Lei/ €2.25 for 3.8 g/ 0.13 oz).

So take your time and enjoy all these new colors as they will be available in store until spring 2017.

Over the past few days I’ve been playing a lot with my new NYX Ultimate Shadow Palette in Smoky & Highlight that I already reviewed earlier this week. Yesterday I finally managed to photograph one of my makeup looks and as I already promised you on Instagram I’m here to keep my promise and tell you more about this look, along with the products I’ve used to create it. I hope you enjoy it!
For this look I went with a dark blue and gray shades for a smoky eye and choose to wear also a dark lip with one of my new Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks. Most of the products I used for this look are by NYX Cosmetics Romania.
