From Mona with Gloss 6th Year Party!

Hello beauties!

This month From Mona with Gloss beauty blog celebrated 6 years of activity and like every year now, Mona hosted a huge party where I was invited as well. Mona is passionate about beauty and fashion and it’s already a tradition that she will celebrate her blog’s anniversary with friends, her readers and beauty blogging community. It was a wonderful night where I got to meet my fellow beauty bloggers, catch up on with some of them and enjoy nice long talks with others while enjoying all the surprises Mona had in store for us.

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Swatches, Preview, Photos

Hello beauties!

So let’s resume the last post where I started with a preview of Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in these two gorgeous pink shades. I’m back with photos from my Iphone as promised so you can see more of these babies. Here are the shades in No.501 Eccentrico and No.502 Mania but for sure many more will be joining my collection in the upcoming weeks!

Romania – beginning November 2016 at Douglas Baneasa

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet (£27.00 / €36.00) is available in 18 shades.

I’m trying to make this quick, because I don’t want to reveal to much now since I’ll be reviewing these individually next week, but they are freaking amazing. The texture is light and creamy and feels like I’m not wearing anything on my lips. Last night, when I actually tried on the first color I absolutely forgot that I was wearing anything 30 minutes later, as the formula felt so comfortable, not a feeling of dryness throughout the wear. So I started my day, wearing the second color and then again the same light feeling and an amazing concentration of pink color on my lips. These have the finest texture of anything I tried so far, they feel like a “second-skin”. I’m totally sold to these, as they don’t feel sticky, oily or tacky, they don’t run or dry the lips so they are perfect for me. Continue Reading

MAC Spring 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection Swatches

Hello beauties!

I honestly couldn’t wait to show you the two new retro matte lipsticks shades that I got from MAC Spring Summer 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection (info, photos). The announcement for this collection was made back in early summer and we knew that 50 makeup items for face, eyes and lips were coming our way in the beginning of 2017. Responsible with creating the new lip product shades for MAC SS 2017 Kabuki Magic Collection is Kabuki himself and even though the color story hasn’t been revealed yet, there are swatches of several shades running on Instagram. I’ve teased you earlier today with live swatches of MAC Kabuki Magic retro matte lipsticks so I thought of quickly taking a few photos with my phone and do a little preview before I get to try these more seriously for upcoming reviews.

Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

This season everyone is crazy about matte lipsticks so I couldn’t miss the chance of blogging about the new Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks (14.20 Lei/ €2.25 for 3.8 g/ 0.13 oz). This is actually a new collection of lipsticks, featuring eight colors which just entered Essence Fall Winter 2016 permanent range of products. So take your time and enjoy all these new colors as they will  be available in store until spring 2017. I have for you today seven colors that I’ve been playing with, wearing and testing for the past week, so it’s time for an entire collection review. Essence matte lipsticks represent an affordable version, as they are drugstore products and the price is beyond cheap.

Douglas Magic Palette Preview, Photos

Hello pretties!

Yesterday was an amazing day for me even though I’m a bit superstitious when it comes to number 13. I already told you how much I love shopping at Douglas, as they always have amazing promotions and gift with purchases for different brands, but they also offer discounts to their card owners. Last month while I did some Clinique and Estee Lauder purchases at Douglas Park Lake Mall I also entered their local raffle. Yesterday I received a phone call which announced me that I won the raffle and I should pick up my prize right away.

I honestly decided to blog about my prize because I’m honestly in love with Douglas Magic Palette. I didn’t thought much of this palette until I opened it and so have many products it features…but wait that’s not even the best part. You can definitely purchase it right now at Douglas Perfumeries as it retails for 90.00 Lei and I’m telling you it’s totally worth it. Continue Reading
