Benefit GALifornia Blush Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Benefit GALifornia Blush (official info, promo photos) is one of those items that I felt they deserve to be in my makeup collection forever. I can’t ignore a pretty packaging and this one is part sun, part fun so it really makes me dream of those hippie times, flower-power atmosphere which really makes summer feel like it’s right around the corner. On a casual visit at Sephora counters on early January, I stumble upon this beauty, as you’ve seen on my Instagram video and was actually quite surprised we had the honor to have it launched 3 months before U.S.. This is a case that rarely happens….Giorgio Armani Sunrise Palette (swatches, photos) was another pleasant exception earlier this year so as a blogger, when you see a newness you just know you have to have it, if not for yourself at least for your readers. 🙂

MAC Mariah Carey My Mini Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

MAC My Mini Extra Dimension Skinfinish was one of my top picks from MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection (info, photos) which was a limited edition release. I went for some light shopping yesterday at Sephora (they have sales btw) and I saw at MAC counters they still have products from this collection available. Like most of you out there, I was head over heels over the packaging of MAC Mariah Carey collection and since this gorgeous extra dimension skinfinish was announced as one of the star products, I had to have it. What really blew away customers, was by far the gorgeous glittery packaging and unique patterns on the products. I’m not really a sucker for limited edition packaging but I’d have to admit this collection really got me. What I find obscene at this product is the high price (extra $12.50) which doesn’t really explain the packaging or the quality of the product, but I guess it’s luxurious just like Mariah.

MAC-My-Mini-Extra-Dimension-Skinfinish-Review

MAC My Mimi Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($45.50 / 193.00 Lei for 0.35 oz.) is described as a warm gold shimmer. I see it as medium coppery-brown with gold, sparkly shimmer finish. It had a fairly good color payoff, with a semi-opaque coverage. Continue Reading

Dior Treasure Diorific Matte Fluid Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

The holiday season might have ended but Dior Treasure Diorific Matte Fluid is still one of my top lip color choices. I was fascinated about Dior Diorific Matte Fluid launch as you know I blogged so much on this subject and even showed you lip swatches of all the shades long before the product hit counters. I was indeed super excited to try out the new formula and play with all the colors, minus the red Luxury shade which is not for me, but when I saw the retailed so expensive, I kind of stopped myself at only one shade. Now, almost two months later I feel like I want to buy one more shade and I was thinking of Marvel (002). Dior Diorific Matte Fluid Lip & Cheek Velvet Colour is a limited edition release part of Dior Holiday 2016 Splendor Collection (info, photos) and like the description says, you can use it both for lips and cheeks.

It has a good color payoff, but not a very rich and intense pigmentation that will look bright or totally opaque on the lips. Continue Reading

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.

Guerlain Spring 2017 Happy Glow Collection Swatches, Preview

Hello cuties!

Guerlain Spring 2017 Happy Glow Collection (official info / photos) will hit the counters pretty soon, so I thought I’d finally give you a closer look, a couple of swatches and my first impression overall. I was so anxious to post about this collection, since last month when I got to see it in person, but as I told you on Instagram when I posted the video, I was asked to post pone the article until January 2017. This is a capsule collection which pays tribute to Meteorites 30th Anniversary, so it includes only a couple of products. As you might have read on my blog, there’s a second Guerlain makeup collection launching later in spring. So if you’re craving for more take a first look at Guerlain Spring 2017 La Petite Robe Noire Collection (info, photos).
