MAC Mariah Carey My Mini Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

MAC My Mini Extra Dimension Skinfinish was one of my top picks from MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection (info, photos) which was a limited edition release. I went for some light shopping yesterday at Sephora (they have sales btw) and I saw at MAC counters they still have products from this collection available. Like most of you out there, I was head over heels over the packaging of MAC Mariah Carey collection and since this gorgeous extra dimension skinfinish was announced as one of the star products, I had to have it. What really blew away customers, was by far the gorgeous glittery packaging and unique patterns on the products. I’m not really a sucker for limited edition packaging but I’d have to admit this collection really got me. What I find obscene at this product is the high price (extra $12.50) which doesn’t really explain the packaging or the quality of the product, but I guess it’s luxurious just like Mariah.

MAC-My-Mini-Extra-Dimension-Skinfinish-Review

MAC My Mimi Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($45.50 / 193.00 Lei for 0.35 oz.) is described as a warm gold shimmer. I see it as medium coppery-brown with gold, sparkly shimmer finish. It had a fairly good color payoff, with a semi-opaque coverage. Continue Reading

Dior Treasure Diorific Matte Fluid Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

The holiday season might have ended but Dior Treasure Diorific Matte Fluid is still one of my top lip color choices. I was fascinated about Dior Diorific Matte Fluid launch as you know I blogged so much on this subject and even showed you lip swatches of all the shades long before the product hit counters. I was indeed super excited to try out the new formula and play with all the colors, minus the red Luxury shade which is not for me, but when I saw the retailed so expensive, I kind of stopped myself at only one shade. Now, almost two months later I feel like I want to buy one more shade and I was thinking of Marvel (002). Dior Diorific Matte Fluid Lip & Cheek Velvet Colour is a limited edition release part of Dior Holiday 2016 Splendor Collection (info, photos) and like the description says, you can use it both for lips and cheeks.

Dior Treasure (003) Diorific Matte Fluid ($38.00 / £28.50 / 193.00 Lei for 10 ml / 0.33 fl oz) is a medium-dark rosewood with blue undertones and a soft matte finish. It has a good color payoff, but not a very rich and intense pigmentation that will look bright or totally opaque on the lips. Continue Reading

Another day, another shade of Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet. I can’t stress enough how in love I’m with the lip magnet formula and how much I like wearing this liquid lipstick, so here’s a new shade (507) Garconne. I’ll be brief in my review this time as I already talked about the formula, packaging and why this product is so amazing in my Eccentrico Lip Magnet review so let’s get started with this shade. Don’t forget to check out Giorgio Armani Mania Lip Magnet review as well. 🙂

Lancome Spring 2017 Juicy Shaker

Hello pretties!

Lancome is adding new Juicy Shaker shades to their permanent collection. I’m quite excited about this launch since my Meli Melon Juicy Shaker (review, swatches) is always with me in my bag and has successfully replaced my lip balm when I’m on the go. There will be eight new shades joining the Juicy Shaker range and I’m anxiously waiting to see how the pink and purple shades will perform. I feel that Juicy Shakers are a nice touch of juicy colors on your lips, add moisture and keeps them hydrated but unfortunately they are not long lasting. You can also use them as a blush to get that fresh pop of color.
