I know how much buzz my post of Giorgio Armani Sunrise Palette (promo photos) for summer 2017 created on Instagram and that’s why I decided to blog a little about it before my detailed review (later this week). If you are one of my followers I bet you’ve already seen my Instagram video with live swatches and all the sneak peek photos I posted even since I got this pretty baby. I wish I would have taken proper photos before I dipped my fingers into this palette, but honestly once I arrived home and opened I just could resist the temptation. Many of you asked for swatches, since the palette wasn’t released in other countries yet so here’s just a rough presentation of this palette.
Romania Launch Date – Now Exclusively at Douglas Baneasa
U.S. Launch Date – March 2017 at Nordstrom

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).
U.S. Launch Date – beginning January 2017

I won’t have time to post the reviews for Dior Spring 2017 Colour Gradation Collection (official info, photos) this year but after the sneak peek and unboxing video from Instagram the other week, I though a couple of swatches will give you more perspective. These were my top three picks from this collection, but I’m hoping I’ll get more items in January, just for the sake of reviews and because I know some of you are interested in the eyeshadow palettes as well.

Many will agree that MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection was one of the most desired makeup collections of this season. For me personally it was an adventure to purchase these few products because most of the collection was sold out when I got to the counters. I had my wish list ready months before this collection launched, but so it came to pass that the launch date didn’t match my salary date. 🙂 So basically when I was ready to start shopping, I had to call every MAC counter in my city and ask what products they still had available…unfortunately only these three came home with me. I admit I wanted the Loose Powder and another lipstick shades, but they were among the first products to fly off counters. MAC Mariah Carey Collection has definitely got everyone’s attention with its bling-bling sparkling packaging and the beautiful butterfly pattern on the lipstick or don’t even get me started on that gorgeous Extra Dimension Skinfinish.

I couldn’t go buying Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster (review, photos) without getting the Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Skincare Superstars (official info, promo photos) set as well. The fact is that last year by buying Estee Lauder Holiday 2015 Beauty of the Night Collection (review, photos) I discovered some really great skincare products and I said to myself I’ll try and take advantage of this year’s holiday offers as well and get me more Estee Lauder skincare. It’s true that some of these products were already known to me, while others were included in the holiday 2016 blockbuster as well, but I wanted to give away some of these goodies as a holiday gift to a dear one.

The truth is that since Autumn started I feel guilty of too much shopping and less posting on the blog, and I mean reviews and swatches of the products I bought. Estee Lauder Holiday 2016 Blockbuster (official info, promo photos) was one of this year’s holiday goodie releases that I had to have in my collection. I’ve been buying their blockbuster holiday editions for years and it’s kind of a tradition for me, not to mention that the products are mostly full size and you get a great deal for your money. I admit though, this year’s blockbuster didn’t seem quite appealing to me on the makeup side, but I was sold the minute I spotted the full size Advanced Night Repair Serum and Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara which is one of my top 3 favorites and I always keep an extra one or two tubes in my drawer.

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.

One of the next season’s collections I’m most curious about is Guerlain Spring 2017 (sneak peek) and since I’ve told you that unfortunately I can’t post swatches and photos of the products until early January, I’m relying on Instagram photos. Just make sure you are following Chicprofile on Instagram and you will be updated with the latest beauty launches and products that coming up for review on the blog. A Guerlain makeup collection presented in a white packaging look challenging and unpredictable….and I’m saying this because of Guerlain Holiday 2015 Collection (info, photos) which featured a few products in a white packaging which disappointed the customers a little bit as they were expecting a glamorous and fancy limited edition packaging. Bloom of Rose 2015 Fall Collection (promo photos) introduced as well the white packaging for Kiss Kiss Rose Lip colors and even though the shades were beautiful, I didn’t quite connect with the white cases. Now, for spring 2017 the white Guerlain packaging should not come as a surprise anymore as the brand is start to using it even more, although many customers and Guerlain’s fans still remain skeptics to this idea.
Right after the jump you can take a closer look at the new Guerlain spring 2017 Meteorites Perles and Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow Blush.
U.S. Launch Date – beginning January 2017
Romania Launch Date – 15 January 2017 Continue Reading
