I admit that sometimes I embrace trends just for the sake of blogging…I mean there are products that I know I won’t use but I buy them anyway because I’m a beauty blogger and I need to test and review them so I can have an opinion on their performance. I kinda of said that matte lip products are not my thing, not because I don’t like the matte finish but the dryness sensation and look of the lips is killing me. With Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets (info, prom photos) I had a feeling that things will be different so I was quite anxious for the collection to launch in London so I can get my hands on a couple of shades. I knew the Armani Lip Magnets will hit Romanian counters as well but I couldn’t wait another month to try them on so I had a friend who purchased a few shades for me from London.
Where to buy:
Romania – Now exclusively at Douglas Baneasa Shopping Center
U.S. – Now at Sephora
UK – Now at Selfridges
Giorgio Armani Mania (502) Lip Magnet (£27.00 / $38.00 / 163.00 Lei for 3.9 ml / 0.13 fl oz) is officially described as a baby pink. It’s a bright baby pink with blue undertones and a soft matte finish. It’s just my kind of pink color, one that I’m joyfully using during the day or for a casual look. Continue Reading
I’m happy to finally introduce Numeric Proof as a new brand on Chicprofile! I’ve known about this brand for a couple of years now but it is only recently that I’ve began to use their products and get more familiarized with what they are offering and especially how to use them correctly. Thanks to my friend and makeup artist Marian Tanase I’ve entered the beautiful world of Numeric Proof products and find out not only that we are talking about a french makeup brand created after two years of rigorous research but also that is a brand which offers products for professional high definition makeup. After long hours of talking about Numeric Proof makeup I understood why they are considered one of the most professional makeup brands out there and why it’s so important to know how to use the products correctly.
