This weekend while I had the privilege of getting a free Guerlain Makeup Session from Jose-Luis Yuve (makeup tutorial) I got to see and try out the new Guerlain Eau de Beaute. Since I got there I spotted on the makeup table Guerlain Eau de Beaute Refreshing Micellar Solution, a new skincare product that will be launching this fall.
International Launch Date – September 2015 at Guerlain counters
Jose-Luis Yuve as Guerlain makeup trainer and International Make-Up Artist is always ahead with Guerlain novelties so this time he got on him this new makeup remover product. It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a golden cap and a pump which facilitates the application. The transparent bottle express clarity and seeing how much product you have left inside it is always a good thing. I loved this product from the moment I saw it as it suggests purity and once it touched my skin while gently removed my makeup it instantly gave me a fresh, clean sensation while leaving an impeccable clean complexion.

Saturday morning… a pampering Guerlain makeup session at Sephora, the perfect way to start my weekend…but this day was special, not just an ordinary free makeup session hosted in another beauty shop. This day I got to meet Jose-Luis Yuve, Guerlain trainer and Export International Make-Up Artist and I had the privilege to spent a couple of hours in his company, enjoying a wonderful discussion but also receiving valuable beauty advices while he did my makeup.
I was really anxious to see what type of makeup look would Jose-Luis choose for me so I felt flattered when he told me I would look so sexy wearing an Italian Smokey Eye Look, just like the one Olivier Echaudemaison created for Sophia Loren. This type of look is meant to elongate the eyes, making them appear bigger by darkening the outer corner of the eye while keeping the inner corner more luminous. When Jose-Luis starts applying makeup everything seems to be so easy, the perfect blending and his impeccable techniques would make even the most complex makeup seem so simple, as for this look he only used two of the new Guerlain Ecrin 1 Colour shades (review, photos, swatches).

Hot new shades are coming this summer from Clinique and I’m not talking about eyeshadow or lipsticks. Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara is a new line of colorful mascaras which will deliver bit fat lashes but also a pop of color which should change the your entire look. Summer for me is the season when I go easy on the makeup, as I like to keep it simple, using only 3 or 4 products at the most so the upcoming launch of Clinique Chubby Lash Fattening Mascaras is most welcome. I read the news on BritishBeautyBlogger and I bet she will have samples and swatches to show us pretty soon so I’m really excited to see all the new colors.

I’ve been waiting for the release of Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes (info, photos) for almost 4 months now, since I so many reviews and everyone was so excited about this new launch. Here is my review of Max Factor 05 Lovely Pink Creme Puff Blush, one of the six shades released this spring. This is the lightest shade from the entire line so having a fair skin tone I would definitely say this was perfectly chosen for me when Max Factor Romania sent me this product over for consideration. The new Max Factor Creme Puff Blush line offers colors for any skin tone from fair to light and medium to dark so you can easily find something suitable for you. Max Factor is usually bragging about its eye makeup products and if you are familiar with the brand you know mascaras are its strongest point but now, the release of these blushes makes them serious about cheek products as well.

Max Factor Lovely Pink Creme Puff Blush (£8.99 / 65.00 lei) is a light peachy pink with fine gold and slightly dark pink shades running through it. It’s a baked powder blush with a super soft, velvety formula which feels amazingly smooth to the touch. This shade is definitely suitable for fair to light skin tones as it offers a light color coverage which can be easily buildable to a maximum light-medium coverage. Continue Reading
