Dior Pink Shift Diorblush Colour Gradation Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

A new day, another review from Dior Spring 2017 Colour Gradation Collection (info, photos) and this time is Dior Pink Shift Diorblush, a vibrant colour powder blush. I couldn’t miss out on this one as you know how in love I am with the sweetness of a pink color, but I also got the coral shade so I can review both of them. My first love from this collection is Dior Rising Pink Diorskin Nude Air (review, swatches) that I showed you the other day and this gorgeous pink gradation blush comes next.

Dior Pink Shift (002) Diorblush Colour Gradation (6.5 g / 0.22 oz) is a combination of light and medium pink with cool undertones and a soft matte finish. Due to the gradation of color you can either get a soft touch of pink, just to add a bit of freshness and the sense of spring on your cheeks, or you can pass on to something more pigmented and choose to swirl your brush in the upper color of the pan.

MAC Vino Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

For a few months I’ve been enjoying the gorgeous color of MAC Vino Lip Pencil and I’ve been pairing it with different lipstick shades and textures. It’s part of the permanent collection so you’ll find it available at your local MAC counter anytime. I discovered it last year when I did some shopping at MAC and also bought Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet (review, swatches), a shade that would definitely need an investment into a new lip liner color. MAC Vino was a perfect match for Burnt Violet, but for other shades as well so it became a one of the most used lip pencils from my collection in the past few months.

MAC Vino Lip Pencil ($17.50 / 71.00 Lei for 1.45 g / 0.05 oz) is officially described as an intense violet-purple. I see it as a medium-dark cool toned burgundy with a touch of purple and a matte finish. It has a good color payoff and it comes very close to a full opacity on the lips. It provides a burst of color in just one swipe and glides easily across the lips but it feels a bit dry at the same time. Continue Reading

Dior Colour Gradation Diorskin Nude Air Rising Pink Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

I’ve been postponing this review for weeks now due to the holidays and all, but I’m happy that I can give you a closer look at Dior Diorskin Nude Air Colour Gradation in #002 Rising Pink. This is actually one of the two limited edition shades (the other one is Radiant Nude) launching later this month as part of Dior Spring 2017 Colour Gradation Collection (info, photos) and it was the first product that got my attention. I absolutely love the pink color gradation and I’ve been meaning to give it a try and see if it resembles a little bit the Guerlain Meteorites Powder Compact. Actually the name of this product is quite a long one as you can see in the packaging photo bellow, so here it goes… Dior Diorskin Nude Air Colour Gradation Blurring Powder Soft Glow and comes with a mini kabuki brush. To tell you the truth the brush has made quite an impression on me, as I got to use it everytime I apply the powder and it’s really great.

Dior Rising Pink Diorskin Nude Air (12 g / 0.42 oz) comes in a very light pink with a gradation towards a white rosy shade and gives your skin a beautiful soft glow with a semi-matte finish. I honestly loved this powder from the first touch, first application…as it instantly mattified my complexion, while blurring small skin imperfection and gave a luminous and natural finish overall.

YSL Top Secret Collection New Products

Hello beauties!

Just a quick post to let you know that YSL will be adding new products to its Top Secret Collection starting this spring. Probably the most interesting product for me right now, is Lip Perfector, because we have winter here, a lot of snow and my lips definitely need that extra care. The Lip Perfector is a two in a one product that can be used as a balm or a lip scrub, which really makes it perfect for this weather. It provides a light exfoliation and ensures that lips are prepared even for the application of a matte lipstick. It will allow an even application of your lip color and give you that perfectly moisten and soft lips.

MAC Flamingo Road Retro Matte Lipcolour Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Just as promised, I’m back with another review of one of the new four liquid lipstick shades from MAC Kabuki Magic Collection (info, photos) that I was telling you about yesterday. Today is all about MAC Flamingo Road Retro Matte Lipcolour, a crazy and vibrant shade which I’ve been wearing a couple of times last season. I’m quite familiar with MAC Retro Matte Lipcolour formula and the true matte finish, but I can’t really say I’m feeling comfortable with that dryness sensation on my lips.
