I want to show you some of my new Rouge Bunny Rouge makeup products and to give you a sneak peek of the two upcoming brand new eyeshadows that are launching next year. I’ve tested and played with these products in the last couple of days so I will be posting individual reviews for all of them after the holidays.

RBR Genesis Original Skin Primer ($58.85 / £36.00/ €43.00 for 33.5 ml/ 1.13 fl oz) was on my wishlist since it was launched earlier this month (official info & photos) and I was really eager to try it out and see the results for my self. I have a combination/ sensitive skin type for I’m always concerned with oiliness in my T zone and I really have to carefully choose my products so they won’t break me out. Continue Reading
I’m so happy that my package with the new Senna Do You Dare? Holiday 2013 Collection (official info & promo photos) arrived two days ago and I have time to show swatches and photos right before Christmas. It is a small collection, a special edition release for the Holidays and it features only six makeup products, basically your essentials items to create a glamorous and chic makeup look.
Somehow I know this collection is pretty simple and it doesn’t give you the possibility to play with different colors and textures so you can create several makeup looks for Christmas dinner or New Year’s Eve party but it contains the go to products you need to achieve a classy, yet glamorous look, something like a cat eye, or a natural sparkling eye with a bright bold red lip.

This Friday I attended a presentation held by Essence where I got to see in person some of the new makeup products, nail polishes and fragrances that were included in the permanent collection starting this fall.
There are a couple of new entries in the fragrance segment but most of them are spring and summer oriented. Still there’s one suitable for every season called Like The Party of My Life which I took home with me in a 10 ml/ 0.33 fl oz bottle along with the new Like A Day In Paradise EDT which has sweet accords and it smells like summer to me. The fragrances are also available in full size 50 ml bottles.
By far the main attraction were the new permanent lipstick shades which come in bright colors from pink to fuchsia and magenta but also in coraly reds, nudes and plums. I believe there’s a color for everyone! They all look pretty pigmented when I swatched them on my arm and shown a creamy formula but I only took one shade home with me which is #08 Colour Crush (a pink of course) so I will review it later and tell more about it.
International Launch Date – Now at Douglas, DM, Muller
Romania Launch Date – Now at Douglas, Auchan and online @emag.ro, @1001cosmetice.ro Continue Reading
I know many of you are into the Essence brand so I wanted to show you some of my Essence products, a few nail polishes, an eyeshadow quad, a mascara and an eyeliner. I have purchased these products a while ago so I can’t remember their exact prices but all of them are included in the permanent range so they should still be available at your local counters.
Now at Douglas, Muller, Marionnaud and private beauty shops or online @essence.eu Continue Reading
I want to start this article by apologizing to all of you for not posting earlier the swatches of Kinetics Leather & Sand Collection (info & photos). I don’t know how it happened but I really forgot to post these photos and swatches that I took a few months ago. Leather and Sand is a limited edition collection that was released this summer but it arrived in my country only this autumn.
When I first wrote about these shades my first instinct was that I find them more suitable for holiday as most of them are so sparkling and have glittery textures. They can be layered on different nail colors or can be worn on their one depending on your preferences.
The collection features 6 shades but I bought only 4 of them which I like the most and I will review separately in the upcoming days (hopefully I will have time before I receive Kinetics Happy New Year Holiday 2013 Collection).

As you probably know Senna Midnight Wine Collection for Fall 2013 was launched earlier this month and because I have received all the products I want to give you a quick preview and show you the swatches. The collection is quite small and features only 8 products but they are essential to created the Ravishing Ruby and Neo Copper looks. I’ve always been into autumnal shades when it came to eye makeup and I was so happy to discover the two new beautiful shades of the eye color.
The Ravishing Ruby look uses intoxicating berries, gilded bronzes on smoldering eye and sumptuous intense ruby red lips while Neo Copper is all about glimmering bronze and copper colors that glaze the face with a volcanic patina. I’ve already tested most of these products and I will post my reviews in the following days starting with the 3 new lip lacquers.
Senna Cosmetics kept its elegant packaging the same for this collection even though I admit I wanted to see the products with a different packaging style.
There are a lot of news coming from Shiseido this season as they launched a new makeup collection for fall winter 2013, the new Zen Gold Elixir EDP and also the Ibuki Skincare Line that I specifically detailed in quite a few articles.
Last week I attended a social event where all Shiseido novelties were presented by Margo Canfeure from Shiseido’s European headquarters and Mouna Ghoul from the European Research Center. I was really looking forward to seeing all the new products in person since I’ve already spread the news about them on the blog months before the launch date.
U.S. Launch Date – now @shiseido.com, Sephora, Nordstrom
Romania Launch Date – mid September 2013 at Sephora, Douglas
International Launch Date – September/October 2013 at Sephora, Douglas and all Shiseido’s counters
