Coque D’Or Makeup Look Is Perfect for Fall

Hello beauties!

If earlier today I was reviewing the new Guerlain Coque D’Or 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette from Guerlain Fall 2016 Collection (swatches), I’d thought I would surprise you with my Coque D’Or Makeup Look which I’m actually wearing right now. Each of the newly released Guerlain 5 Color Eyeshadow Palettes comes with two makeup tutorials included so it’s up to you if you want to follow the nude or smokey eye version. I personally decided to do my own version of Coque D’Or Makeup and you can see in the photos bellow what I’ve come up with. I wanted to combine a smokey with a cat eye look so I really like what it turned out to be in the end, just the perfect makeup for evening, not too dramatic but definitely one that will complement greened eyed ladies.

For this makeup I used one of my favorite foundations, MustaeV Skinny Tint Foundation, one that I actually kind of leave it sitting in my makeup desk for a quite a while now, and I’ve applied it with my pink Original Beauty Blender to create a smoother appearance. In order to create this smokey cat eye look I used the original Shadow Shields that I got from Andra Cosmetics a while ago and I must say they are absolutely amazing, for a perfect makeup application. They are so versatile and you can use them in so many ways for different makeup styles, like creating a perfect winged cat eye, a straight edge for shadow just like I did here or simply to protect under eye area from eye shadow fallout, especially when you are playing with pigments. Check the entire list of the products I used along with their reviews right after the jump.

Kinetics One Night Girl Solar Gel Nail Polish, Review, Swatches, Before & After Photos

Hello sweeties!

Kinetics One Night Girl Solar Gel Nail Polish is what I can call a vibrant and classy red shade. I have to admit that I’m not so bold to be wearing red on my nails pretty often, but Kinetics One Night Girl was hard to resist. This is definitely one of the star polishes of Kinetics Rio Rio Summer 2016 Collection (swatches, info, photos) as it’s not only rich, pigmented and with an amazing formula but last beautifully on the nails for more than one week.

Now @kineticsnails.com, @margaritabelska.com, @kiriloff.ro

Kinetics One Night Girl Solar Gel Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a medium-deep red with warm undertones and shiny gel-like finish. It’s a rich, intense and truly pigmented nail lacquer that looks beautifully and opaque in a single coat. Obviously you can stop at just one coat and you won’t be sorry but adding a second layer will intensify the color and give it an extra sheen. Continue Reading

Guerlain Coque D’Or 5 Coluerus Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Guerlain Fall 2016 Collection (swatches, info) features six new variations of 5 Couleur Palettes and as promised I’ll be reviewing them individually. Today I’m presenting my review for Guerlain Coque D’Or 5 Couleur Palette which comes in this extremely elegant black, luscious compact (hard to photograph by the way). Each of the 5 shades can be applied alone (wet or dry) or layered to create a perfect harmony. This season Guerlain revamps the format of its eyeshadow palettes and creates the new 5 Colour Eyeshadow Palettes which feature 1 base to smooth out and illuminate, 2 nude shades and 2 smoky shades so you can create a smouldering look or perfect smoky eye. Each shade has a different texture so in one palette you’ll find matte, satin or metallic finishes.

Guerlain Fall In Nude (500) Kiss Kiss Lipstick (185.00 Lei / $37.00 / €37.00 for 3.5 g / 0.12 oz) is officially described as a tender nude pink. I see it as a very light peach-champagne with gold shimmer, warm undertones and a satin finish. It has a sheer coverage, almost transparent-like, without completely changing your lip color but it does lay a beautiful golden veil with a natural sheen. Continue Reading
