I heard others talking about Magnifique Skin‘s products last year and I got interested in find out more about this brand only recently as I discovered their ACM dermato skincare range. I received ACM Sebionex Foaming Gel a couple of months back and I didn’t get to use it until last month as I wanted to finish my other washing gel first. You know I’m obsessed more over skincare products rather than makeup and I don’t want to test or just put any product on my face. I carefully select only the products that I consider are right for my skin needs and I’m never interested in mass market products.

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time now, but I kept postponing it with every new MustaeV makeup product I tried, hoping at least one of them will stop me from confessing the truth. I Hate MustaeV! There it is…I said it, finally after more than one year of trying out and using their products. You’ve seen me wearing MustaeV in mostly every makeup look that I’ve done, you read my reviews and not one week passes without testing out a new MustaeV product but I never actually told you how I truly felt inside until today.
Well, MustaeV, you can’t stop me from telling everyone how I feel about you as a brand and especially about your products. There will be silence no more as over the past year and a half since I met you I’ve gather evidence to support my case so nor you or anyone can convince me otherwise as much as they want.
Here’s my story, until this very moment when I decided it’s time to lay everything out in the open so anyone who dares to purchase and wear your makeup will know what they are getting into.
Today I was in a mood for an Absolute Nude Makeup Look and therefore I was inspired by Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette (review, swatches, photos) but since I wanted to take this look a step forward I pulled my new MustaeV Tension Fit Liquid Liner (upcoming review) and give it classic twist. You can see the result in the photo bellow and if you like how this look turned out and you are curious to know what products I used to achieve it, then take a closer look after the jump.
On a daily basis I like wearing a natural makeup or something with a touch of pink so if you are on the go or in the evening you have a dinner or event and you have no time to get home and renew your makeup, a simply touch with your eyeliner pen or eye pencil can do the trick and transform your daily natural look into a classic, elegant more night time appropriate.

I want to introduce you to the world of Melkior makeup. Who wants to come with me? These are my new products that I’m currently testing and once I’m done you will know all about it in my individual reviews. This summer Melkior suggests crazy intense shades as they unveiled their new Indian Summer Collection (info, photos) so I thought of trying out some new shades, different than the ones I’m usually wearing.

Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette was released a few years back and I admit I’m ashamed I never got the chance to purchase it all this time. I’m a lover of nude shades and palettes so this one was an Absolute Nude Must but I had so many other nude and naked eyeshadow palettes that kept me busy. Anyone who calls himself a fan of the nude and natural shades I’m sure it owns at least one edition of the famous UD Naked Palette but since I’m obsessed with colors like these I went one step further and purchased even a high-end edition, YSL Nu Couture Variation 10 Color Palette (review, swatches, photos). Catrice is a drugstore brand so of course the quality can’t be compared but for those who can’t afford or just don’t want to spent so much money on a high-end nude shades palette they will definitely find a few good dupes here.

Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette (€4.95 for 6 g/ 0.21 oz) is a six nude shades eyeshadow palette. Catrice goes from light to dark tones in this palette and has chosen very well shades for a day, natural makeup look which can be later on easily transformed into a nigh time makeup by easily intensifying the shadows.

Eye brows define our appearance, they can easily and always make the difference in the way we look so it’s important to have the right eye brow shape which complements our face shape. Therefore our brows needs special care and a good brow pencil in the right color that would look very naturally on us. MustaeV Silky Sketch Brow Pencil came into my life in the right moment, like he knew I was on the look out to purchase a new brow pencil and try out something different than my MAC Lingering Eye Brows.

Summer is already here and curiously I’m in the mood for soft or sparkling makeup looks instead of pulling out my bright eyeshadows and creating a crazy, colorful makeup look. The other day I wore this Gold and Lilac Soft Makeup, something I did in under ten minutes, as I was aiming for something sweet, flattering and with a hint of girly girl in it. Over the past few days as the temperatures where crazy here I was testing and wearing instead of foundation my new ACM Sensitelial Coloured Sunscreen Cream SPF 50 in a Golden Tint shades that I’ll be reviewing later this week. I’m new to tinted sunscreen creams but this summer I really want to give this type of product a try as when the hot temperatures kick in I prefer as more light makeup as possible.
Take a look after the jump if you are curious to know what products I used for this new soft gold and lilac makeup for green eyes. Continue Reading
