Shopping for Lancome L’Absolu Rouge at Douglas

Hello babes!

If you are following me on Instagram you’ve noticed for sure how often I find myself shopping at Douglas perfumeries. Earlier this week I bought a new shade of Lancome L’Absolu Rouge (swatches, photos), that I’m crazy about since I first hear the brand was renewing its entire line lipstick line. Coming up with four new finishes and a bunch of colors was definitely something that I needed to check out, but the new packaging was the cherry on the cake for me. The other day I posted a short video on Instagram where I showed you how the new Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick gets opened and it’s not only elegant but I would say chic with a twist.

Shopping for Clinique and Estee Lauder at Douglas + GwP

Hello beauties!

Last week I planned on going on a shopping spree at ParkLake Mall for some NYX Cosmetics goodies (look at my purchase), some skincare essentials and new makeup products. I love shopping at Douglas! It’s actually my favorite store when it comes to beauty purchases and this feeling goes way back, more than ten years ago when I was to travel abroad quite often (especially in Germany) for a good shopping session. I also have a discount card and they always come up with great offerings, not to mention they offer impressive GwP and a variety of samples to try out at home even though I buy only one product.

Can You Tell I’m Addicted to Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks?

Hello cuties!

Really? Can you tell that I’m currently obsessed with Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks? How? 🙂 Well…I was warned that 100 lipstick shades in six different finishes are coming our way this season but I didn’t dare to believe they were all gonna be so irresistible. It all started with a tricky invitation by Urban Decay to spend an afternoon in the company of the new 100 shades, while I’d get a makeover and a new hairstyle. I got home that day baring my Urban Decay goodie bag and I didn’t even know the addiction was about to settle in soon.

New Dose of MAC Vamplify

Hello sweeties!

Last night I’ve been teasing you with my latest makeup purchases which included some MAC stuff as well so right this morning I knew I ought to share with you what I’ve bought. The new MAC Vamplify 2016 Collection (info, photos) just reached Romania so you’d better hurry and check it out as it will fly off of counters so fast. MAC Vamplify comes the second time around, after their success back in the fall of 2015. I did manage to get me some shades back then but honestly when arrived at the counters most of my favorites were sold-out. This year I couldn’t let that happen again so yesterday I hurried to my nearest MAC Store.

NYX Makeup Haul

Hello beauties!

NYX Cosmetics opened earlier this month its first store in Bucharest, but I already told you all about it yesterday when I also showed you my NYX goodie bag with new and exciting things to try out (watch out for upcoming reviews). I absolutely loved the store and product’s presentation, not to mention that I’ve always been crazy over NYX lip glosses, so while I was there at the opening event, I carefully made my wishlist. Last week, after all the buzz was gone I thought it will be a great time to go check the products on my wishlist and do some shopping in silence, taking advantage of NYX 20% discount. Bellow you can see what I purchased, but honestly I will need to come back next week and I’ll tell you why in a bit.

Shopping NYX at ParkLake Plaza Mall

Hello beauties!

Last week was market entirely by NYX Cosmetics on my calendar. Not only did I go to their opening store party but I went back to the store the day after and did some heavy NYX shopping (photo tease) which will result in a beauty haul soon to be posted on the blog. NYX Cosmetics recently opened their first store in Bucharest in ParkLake Plaza Mall (video tour), which is actually the second store in the country after the one in Constanta. I bet you’ve already seen the photos I posted two weeks ago from the opening store event, showing you swatches of my favorite NYX Liquid Suede lip colors (upcoming reviews) and giving you a peek inside the store. If you haven’t been to the store yet, it’s definitely worth checking it out and don’t forget to subscribe to their program and get your NYX card so you can benefit from all the future promotions and accumulate points so you can later redeem makeup products.

Here are my latest NYX makeup products that were offered me for consideration so keep refreshing my blog for upcoming reviews. I will also be posting soon my NYX makeup haul and show all of the goodies I brought home with me, joined my swatches and a quick preview. I’m already done testing the three NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream colors and you can check out the swatches bellow in case you haven’t already seen them on Instagram the other week. I’m not a fan of a matte finish when it comes to my lips but these were brilliant, so I went back and got some more shades. Continue Reading

Addicted to Urban Decay Vice

Hello pretties!

I can no longer deny it! I knew from the moment Urban Decay announced the launch of new Vice Lipsticks & Glide On Lip Pencils that they were going to be my downfall. I mean who can resist to 100 shades of Vice Lipstick?! It’s well known that I’m not a huge fan of lipsticks and lip glosses are usually my favorite lip products but let’s face it…I’m talking about six different finishes and colors that start from nudes and soft pinks, continuing with the classic shades of reds and burgundy, and finishing with edgy plum, violet, blue and even black. It’s really impossible to say you can’t find a favorite.

Lancome Glow Subtil Silky Creme Highlighters & Color Correcting Primers Miracle CC Cushion

Hello pretties!

As you’ve already seen on my Instagram account, yesterday I attended Lancome Trends Seminar by Alexandru Abagiu, National Makeup Artist Lancome. Besides the novelties of fall 2016 which I already showed you, I got to peek at the new Lancome Glow Subtil Silky Creme Highlighters (info, photos) that blogged about since yearly summer and Color Correcting Primers Miracle CC Cushion (info, photos). I can’t help blogging about these awesome new products, even though I know they are still being kept secret for now but the information is out there internationally and in some countries they are even available for purchase.

So…there they were….staying hidden on Alex’s makeup table under a black cloth, when he announced he’ll be using a new product, due to be launched summer 2017. He picked it up and used it to highlight the model’s cheekbones and I knew right away (I’ve been sitting in the first row during the seminar) judging from the packaging and the intensity of the color that we were shown one of the five new colors of Lancome Glow Subtil Silky Creme Highlighters.
