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

This season I’ve been hitting MAC counters pretty bad, leaving with a bunch of new products almost every week. Almost a month ago I showed you my newly purchased Vamplify colors and about 10 days ago I stopped to check out and swatch MAC Liptensity Collection (video on Instagram as well). I knew these were pretty intense colors so I didn’t resist the urge to get me some but I wanted something different than my regular pink shades. I also saw the newly released MAC Versicolour Stain (info, photos) shades so I picked a shade out of those ones as well.

A picture is worth a thousand words is definitely the right saying when it comes to Lancome Spring 2017 Makeup Collection.

You know how long I’ve been waiting for MAC Liptensity Collection (info, promo photos) to hit counters here in Romania and finally I can say these pretty shades are here! Since the moment I saw swatches of all the MAC Liptensity colors I knew I was going to pick up a few of them. I stopped by MAC counter earlier this week and I bet you’ve already seen on Instagram what I purchased but I also posted a quick video with swatches of my favorite MAC Liptensity colors. I’ll be showing you later on the colors I brought home with me but in the meantime I’ll let you check out so more photos.
