Estee Lauder introduces Estée Edit, an 82-stock-keeping-unit makeup and skin-care collection launching exclusively at Sephora in early spring. The new Estee Edit makeup and skin-care range is inspired by Kendall Jenner and beauty blogger Irene Kim.
“Estée Lauder approached Sephora with this concept…to partner to launch a brand created with a whole new approach to the younger, modern consumer,” said Artemis Patrick, senior vice president of merchandising at Sephora. “We worked closely with the Lauder team on all aspects. This is a great brand to target today’s Sephora client and great way for Estée Lauder to introduce a brand to the younger consumer.”

I got MustaeV Pink Mist Eyeshadow (more shades & swatches) for a few weeks now and I’ve been putting it to the test quite a lot. Even though I told you about it since last year and featured it in several makeup looks, I wanted to play with it for a little longer before posting a review just because it can be used not only as an eyeshadow. The color might look casual but is not, is more than that an you just have to swatch it and play with it in different lights so you can see its full potential.
Where to buy:
U.S. & Worldwide – @mustaevusa.com (15% Discount using discount code: chicprofile), @mustaev.co.kr (International Shipping)
MustaeV Pink Mist Eyeshadow ($13.00 for 1.8 g / 0.06 oz) is officially described as a delicate pink hue with shimmering pearl that changes from pink to brown according to the angle of the light and provides a velvety smooth application. Continue Reading

I received this deluxe sample of Giorgio Armani Red to Go (402) Ecstasy Lacquer when I did some shopping for Armani makeup (preview, photos) about two months ago at Selfridges. I showed you back then what products I brought home with me that day as I was really interested in trying out the new Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquers (info, photos) and some newness from their holiday 2015 collection. I got to swatch a couple of them right there at Armani counter and I instantly fall in love with Maharajah (506) Ecstasy Lacquer (review, swatches). Even though my Red to Go shade is a travel size sample, it would have been a pity not to review it and tell you more about its formula and especially show you how gorgeous it looks on the lips.
Where to buy
U.S. – Now at Sephora, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and @giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com
UK – Now at Selfridges
Giorgio Armani Red to Go (402) Ecstasy Lacquer ($38.00 / £27.00 / €32.50 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a fiery, intense orange-red with warm undertones and a high-shine finish. The color is almost opaque in one layer and easily buildable up to full opacity if you and one or two more layers (let the lacquer dry between applications). Continue Reading
This spring Dolce & Gabbana Beauty is celebrating the rose – the eternal flower, a symbol of femininity and sensuality – with the Rosa Look 2016. The new D&G Rosa Spring 2016 Collection is looking gorgeous in those nude pink and lilac shades, a true symphony of delicate pastel tones. I’m just loving these kind of colors and the new Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2016 Eyeshadow Palette seems so classy and perfect to create a diaphanous makeup that can be easily darken using that intense charcoal, for a night time appropriate look if you want.
International Launch Date – February 2016 Continue Reading
Love at first sight…this is what MAC Flamingo Park Spring 2016 Collection is for me. I totally believe this collection is meant for those obsessed with pink shades, just like me. I mean, the new MAC Flamingo Park Collection is by far my favorite spring 2016 makeup line, and I would even dare to say that probably my favorite MAC 2016 collection as I don’t think that I will see so many pink lipsticks, blushes, lip glosses and pigments anytime soon. About a month ago when I read the color story, I knew MAC Flamingo Park will dig a hole in my wallet but until I saw the promo photos, I didn’t know how big it will be. I’m surely hopping this collection will arrive in Romania as well (nothing confirmed yet, but I’ll keep you posted) as I already have on my wishlist no less than six products.
Plunge into the punchy pleasures of pink in a freshly made batch of scrumptious colours that let you have your cake, and wear it too. Glisten pretty on a sunny day with Powder Blush, a fun way to bring delicious colour to your cheeks. Paint it pink and get your just desserts anytime, but be ready to share!
U.S. Launch Date – 28 January 2016 @maccosmetics.com | 4 February 2016 in Stores, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s
