Daring hues are juxtaposed against soft nudes, all encased in limited-edition packaging. The Nude Quad gives eyes a subtle metallic finish, while cheeks are flushed in Powder Blush (Duo). Cream Colour Base adds an icy lustre to eyes and cheeks as two Nail Lacquers provide an haute flash of colour for a chic complement to any look. Lips make a definitive style statement and a subtle swipe of Lipglass is the perfect finish, guaranteed to intrigue.

Essence Smooth Berry Stay Matt Lip Cream Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

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.

Golden Lip Glosses for Summer

Hello beauties!

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
