Kinetics SS 2013 Crazy Daizy Collection – Round-Up Review & Swatches

Hello beauties!

Now that I’ve reviewed all the 12 new nail polishes from Kinetics Spring Summer 2013 Crazy Daizy Collection it’s time for a Round-Up Review post. This collection was released in early spring in some countries while in others it became available closer to summer time. The colors are suitable for spring and summer if you like sweet pastels or bright and pigmented colors on your nails but some of these shades which are darker, pigmented and fully opaque right from the first coat also contain fine shimmer which make them perfect fall or winter shades.

Without any false modesty I can tell you most of these nail lacquers have an incredible formula which makes them long lasting and chip resistant even without the help of a top coat. The colors are rich, pigmented and they don’t fade after a few days like other do, they will also keep its luscious finish and brilliant shimmer reflexes while they last beautifully on the nails up to 7 days.  I did encountered one or two polishes with a more difficult formula but none of them chipped, I just had to put in more time and effort to get the full opacity.

Max Factor Spring Summer 2013 CC Cream – Official Info & Photos

Hello lovelies!

If 2012 was the year of BB creams then 2013 is officially the year of CC Creams, as I see a CC cream popping from every beauty brand, like flowers in the spring. Max Factor is among the first beauty brand to launch their new Colour Correcting Cream, a clever multi-tasking makeup, a must-have to obtain gorgeous, flawless coverage and hydrated, smooth looking skin. Covers like a foundation, works like a BB cream. A favourite of max factor’s international make-up artists, you’ll wonder how you managed without it.

NYX Spring 2013 Makeup Collection at Cosmobeauty Exhibition 2013 – Preview & Photos

Hello beauties!

I’m sure many of my Romanian visitors know that this weekend Bucharest is hosting the annual Cosmobeauty Exhibition where you can find professional beauty products, equipments and services. This year I had in mind to visit no more than 5 brands and NYX was on my list. I remained a fan of NYX makeup products even though the offline shops in Bucharest are long gone and I can order only online but the good news is everything is about to change very soon.

NYX-Makeup-Products-Cosmobeauty-2013

I was excited to see the new NYX Spring 2013 Makeup Collection (info & photos) in person even though the products could not be purchased and only tested.   The collection which was launched in U.S. in late January will be available shortly online for Romanian market. I got the chance to swatch NYX Natural Palette which includes 6 nude shades perfectly chosen for those looking for an intense or natural look. Unfortunately they didn’t have all the products from the spring collection as I would loved to have seen and swatched NYX Smokey Shadow Palette as well.

Back in January I did an exclusive article about NYX Love in Rio Eyeshadow palettes (info & photos) which are actually a 3 color eye shadow palettes available in 11 different styles. The packaging of these trio eyeshadows are so cute and I remember I added quite a few of them on my list. At Cosmobeauty NYX only brought one of these palettes in nude colors with the promise to soon launch the entire collection both online and offline. Continue Reading

Orly Spring Summer 2013 Nail Polish Collections & New Products – Info, Photos & Swatches

Hello beauties!

Back in March I made a special post with all the Orly Upcoming New Products for Spring, Summer, Fall & Holiday 2013 and since last week I attended a press event hosted by Orly Romania I’m happy to announce that some of these products were just launched in Romania. The event was held for the official announcement of Orly Spring 2013 Hope & Freedom Fest Collection (info & promo images), Orly Summer 2013 Mash Up Collection (info & promo images), the new Orly Shade Shifter Gel FX (info & photos) that will be available in UK next moth and the 6 new shades of Orly Gel FX Gel Nail Color Collection (info & promo photos).

As I’ve already dedicated special articles to each one of these collection I will skip the info part and let you feast your eyes on the photos and swatches of the spring and summer 2013 nail polish collections. In the weeks to follow I will post detailed reviews for the shades included in Hope & Freedom Fest Collection as I received 4 of the nail polishes in small size bottles.

The special guest who attended this event was Sam Biddle, international educator for Orly, which I had the pleasure to watch realizing a manicure with the new Orly Shade Shifter Gel FX. In case you haven’t tried this amazing product so far, I advise you should, at least one time at your nail salon. Unfortunately you can’t realize a manicure with Shade Shifter Gel FX at home because you need the Orly’s professional products and a UV lamp but every respectable nail salon should own this product.
