Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Swatches, Preview, Photos

Hello beauties!

So let’s resume the last post where I started with a preview of Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in these two gorgeous pink shades. I’m back with photos from my Iphone as promised so you can see more of these babies. Here are the shades in No.501 Eccentrico and No.502 Mania but for sure many more will be joining my collection in the upcoming weeks!


Where to buy:

UK – Now at Selfridges

U.S. – Now at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus

Romania – beginning November 2016 at Douglas Baneasa

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet (£27.00 / €36.00) is available in 18 shades.

I’m trying to make this quick, because I don’t want to reveal to much now since I’ll be reviewing these individually next week, but they are freaking amazing. The texture is light and creamy and feels like I’m not wearing anything on my lips. Last night, when I actually tried on the first color I absolutely forgot that I was wearing anything 30 minutes later, as the formula felt so comfortable, not a feeling of dryness throughout the wear. So I started my day, wearing the second color and then again the same light feeling and an amazing concentration of pink color on my lips. These have the finest texture of anything I tried so far, they feel like a “second-skin”. I’m totally sold to these, as they don’t feel sticky, oily or tacky, they don’t run or dry the lips so they are perfect for me. Continue Reading

MAC Spring 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection Swatches

Hello beauties!

I honestly couldn’t wait to show you the two new retro matte lipsticks shades that I got from MAC Spring Summer 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection (info, photos). The announcement for this collection was made back in early summer and we knew that 50 makeup items for face, eyes and lips were coming our way in the beginning of 2017. Responsible with creating the new lip product shades for MAC SS 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection is Kabuki himself and even though the color story hasn’t been revealed yet, there are swatches of several shades running on Instagram. I’ve teased you earlier today with live swatches of MAC Kabuki Magic retro matte lipsticks so I thought of quickly taking a few photos with my phone and do a little preview before I get to try these more seriously for upcoming reviews.

Luminous Makeup with a Touch of Pink

Hello lovelies!

Last Friday was a casual day for me so I wanted a luminous and natural makeup look but since later in the evening I needed to go to a party I decided to intensify my look with a vibrant fuchsia lip. I was missing my MustaeV Nude Eyeshadow Quad for a few weeks and luckily I found that day so I need it to use it right away since it just came back from an announced vacation. 🙂 I didn’t want to go and apply a colorful makeup in the morning as I knew it will be a long day, especially one that will take longer into the night so I preferred something more nude and natural that will make me look fresh and rested even after 8 PM. This is what I have come up with and you can see on my Instagram how I looked during that evening and how well my makeup lasted throughout the day.


Take a look bellow and find out all about the products I’ve used for this makeup look along with their reviews. Continue Reading

Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello cuties!

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge new lipstick collection impressed me with the new packaging and variation of colors long before they launched in the stores. I couldn’t helped putting Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge on my wishlist since this is one of their iconic lipstick shades, a symbol of accomplishment, a rare and precious pink, like a pure moment of happiness. I bought it from Douglas perfumery with a 20% discount for being a beauty card owner and I honestly couldn’t imagine it will swatch pink since it look more like a red in the tube. I already had a beautiful violet shade with a sheer finish (Lancome Impertinente L’Absolu Rouge review) from the same range and I wanted a rosy pink hue, something that will look vibrant yet classy at the same time and with a cream finish, definitely a cream finish with a natural sheen.


Where to buy:

U.S. – Now at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and online

Romania – Now at Douglas, Sephora, Kendra, Marionnaud, Debenhams

Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge (155.00 Lei / $32.00 / €32.00 for 3.4 g / 0.12 oz) is officially described as the innovative and original pink, the essence of radiant femininity. It’s a bright, precious pink with cool undertones and creamy finish that provides a natural sheen. Continue Reading
