Aura Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in #089 Pink Lady – Review, Photos & Lip Swatches

Hello pretties!

As I mentioned earlier in my Recently Bought Beauty Products post, today I discovered that Aura makeup line is finally available in Romania. I’ve heard a thing or two about Aura makeup products but since the brand was not available in my country I didn’t have the possibility of testing any of their products.

If you are not familiar with this brand, you should know Aura is a cosmetic brand born in 1996 in Serbia which offers a variety of makeup products. Being a lip gloss addict this is the product I check out first in a beauty brand because in my opinion a girl can never have to many lip glosses. For a drugstore brand, Aura has quite a few different types of lip glosses, I actually counted 6 (Lip Maximizer, Level Up, Glossy, Lip Gloss, Brilliant Shine). I swatched a few shades for each type of gloss and I finally decided to choose from the Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss line, because they were the most pigmented of all and with a non-sticky texture. The Glossy line offered very sheer colors and the tubes were very small (less than 2 ml of product), while the Lip Maximizer are meant to plump your lips offering transparent shades.


Now, Dm, drugstores

Aura Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in #089 Pink Lady (2.4 ml for €4.50/ 19.70 Lei) is a medium cool tone pink with blue undertones, with a creamy formula which feels light and non sticky on the lips. Delivers a pigmented color which transfers into a full coverage color on the lips. It comes in a tube with a doe foot applicator but the color tends to sink a bit into lip lines. It is a soft natural pink which complements all skin tones. It has a sweet smell not very strong but noticeable. It wears on me between 4 and 6 hours. Continue Reading

Recently Bought Beauty Products – Intragen, Balea & Aura – Preview

Hello lovelies!

Today I went shopping and I want to share with you my newest beauty products. I’m happy to have bought another Intragen Anti Hair Loss Treatment Concentrate (review & photos) since I just finished my previous set of 12 vials about 2 weeks ago and I didn’t want to stop the treatment. I’ve discovered Intragen back in 2009 when I didn’t know what other anti hair loss products I should try to help my hair from falling. I’m honestly crediting Intragen as the most efficient anti hair loss treatment I’ve ever used. Since I first purchased this treatment 3 years ago I’ve been using it once a year, usually from autumn until spring ( the 42 vials set will last you a few months) and it has done wonders even to my thin natural blonde hair.

The Intragen treatment  can also be paired with Intragen Anti Hair Loss Shampoo (1250 ml for 117.00 Lei) which comes in a huge bottle of 1250 ml and I’ve used it 2-3 times a week for about 11 months. It’s a professional shampoo and it really helps thicken your hair and fights hair loss problems with success.


Now at Revlon Beauty Salons and online Intragen Treatment comes in 3 different sizes – small = 12 vials for 158.00 Lei – medium = 30 vials – large = 42 vials for 458.00 Lei

Apart from Intragen treatment I’ve bought a few things from my favorite drugstore, Dm. Balea is my favorite drugstore brand from Dm and I’ve been using their conditioner and shower gels for years. Continue Reading
