A new mascara that I got to try out since NYX Cosmetics opened its first store in Bucharest was NYX Doll Eye Mascara. What I loved from the start about this mascara is that on the packaging it shows a photo with its brush so you can very well see the bristles and decide if this is something that you would wear. I’m actually quite picky when it comes to mascara wands so if I don’t like the bristles I don’t even bother to try the product. I do admit is not a healthy attitude because there are times when a new mascara can surprise you and give you big, fat lashes.
Hello doll-face! For irresistibly fluttery eyelashes try this mascara on for size. Doll Eye Mascara uses a unique blend of natural oils Vitamin E and nylon fibers to extend eyelashes to almost faux proportions. Choose from lengthening volumizing or waterproof versions.

I told you earlier that the second half of the fall season will be dedicated to edgy, dark and mysterious lip colors. Urban Decay Heroine Vice Lipstick is a shade that I know it can be out of your comfort zone, and no one understands it better than me. I’m feeling comfortable wearing pink, purples and nudes but this season I just want to play with all the colors for lips and eyes and discover that is actually fun to refresh and revamp your makeup style. Halloween is close so Heroine could be a perfect choice for a dark and bold lip.

Since NYX opened its first store in Bucharest I’ve been visiting the counter pretty often and since I already showed you my latest NYX makeup haul, it was time for some product reviews. In the beginning of this fall I was in the mood for some dark, even black lip colors as well as hot pink shades, while later on I started shopping for colors that I wouldn’t even seen myself wearing a month ago. 🙂 So let me show you these two NYX Butter Gloss shades in Sugar Cookie and Blackberry Pie that were so fun to wear alone and even mixed together.

You know how long I’ve been waiting for MAC Liptensity Collection (info, promo photos) to hit counters here in Romania and finally I can say these pretty shades are here! Since the moment I saw swatches of all the MAC Liptensity colors I knew I was going to pick up a few of them. I stopped by MAC counter earlier this week and I bet you’ve already seen on Instagram what I purchased but I also posted a quick video with swatches of my favorite MAC Liptensity colors. I’ll be showing you later on the colors I brought home with me but in the meantime I’ll let you check out so more photos.

For me this fall is all about a colorful eye makeup and dark, mysterious and edgy colors for the lips, so I thought of introducing MustaeV In The Club Eyeshadow which has been often seen in my makeup looks this season. You’ll probably find it strange that I’m all of the sudden into blue, green and other shades that were not even on my list a couple of months back…but the truth is not that I’ve given up to my pink and purple obsession but I’ve decided to add a little bit more color to makeup looks and play with the colors that I was usually ignoring.
