Rainy day…traffic jam in the late afternoon… and me…trying to arrive on time for Lancome x Sonia Rykiel Fall 2016 Collection (promo photos / info) presentation. The invitation stated “Trends Seminar by Alexandru Abagiu, National Makeup Artist Lancome“…so I knew right away it will be awesome, not only because I would get to check out Lancome Fall 2016 launches and Alex would be sharing with us his knowledge, lots of useful makeup tips and how to make the best use of the new Lancome products using them in so many different ways, but because he is always teasing us news of upcoming Lancome’s collections and I was sure I’d get to peek at some of the new products. I kept you updated on my Instagram page but there’s more to be said…still.
Everything was just like I imagined and more…Lancome Trends Seminar was filled with new info, photos, tips and tricks on how we should get the best use of our new products and honestly I’m so happy that Lancome is one of the first brands which started doing collections’ presentations here in Romania in a different, better and more informative way. For me as a pro-blogger, a trend seminar, workshop or a presentation done by the brand’s national makeup artist is such an inspiration for my new blog posts and I’m leaving not only with new knowledge but also with sneak peeks of the upcoming launches who all of us so much love.
Lancome x Sonia Rykiel Fall 2016 Collection is already available on the counters and not only those who are passionate about makeup should check it out but fashionistas as well, as the packaging is colorful and definitely up for the latest fashion trends, to accessorize your bag. 🙂 Continue Reading
Dior Diorific Matte Fluid is a new product launching in limited edition as part of Dior Splendor Holiday 2016 Collection (color story, photo) later this fall. I’ve said it before and the more I find out about Dior Splendor Christmas Collection, the more convinced I’m that I’ll go broke when it will hit counters. Apart from those gorgeous Dior Smoky Sequin and Dior Precious Embrodery Palettes you saw on my Instagram yesterday, I’m falling in love with these wonderful shades of Diorific Matte Fluid Lip & Cheek Velvet Colours.
U.S. Launch Date – October 2016
International Launch Date – beginning November 2016
Romania Launch Date – November 2016
Yesterday I brought you a first look at MAC Liptensity Holiday 2016 Collection (color story) with all those beautiful promo photos and a few hours later I posted swatches on Instagram. There you can see all of my beauty sneak peeks, first look and swatches, sometimes even before I post them on the blog. I’ve been following Dominic Skinner, senior artist for MAC Cosmetics UK since I made my account and late last night he made us the wonderful surprise of posting these swatches on his profile. Everyone got crazy over the new MAC Liptensity colors and I bet some of the shades will be sold out in the first days. I’m aiming for pinks and purples, but I’m tempted to try the Stallion deep black color.
U.S. Launch Date – 20 September 2016 @maccosmetics.com | 21 September 2016 at MAC Stores

I’ve been jumping for joy since my new MustaeV package has arrived! Why is that? Because I was expecting the new Mood Therapy Face Masks that were in the making for over an year. I found out about these babies almost a year ago and since I was already addicted to MustaeV makeup, I couldn’t be happier and curios at the same time to see how they will do in the skincare department. Launching soon, the new MustaeV Mood Therapy Masks represent a collection of four types of sheet face masks suitable not only for your skin’s need but for your mood as well. Each mask will retail for $3.00 but you can also purchase the entire box of 10 sheets masks for $30.00. I’m trying them all and will let you know more about each one of them in upcoming individual reviews. They all seem to fit my mood as it seems that I’m quite the mood changer, but at first I wanted to try the Pleasure Mask since the description of “regain her skin from late night party” suited me perfectly. I will not turn away from the Sadness Mask since I believe everyone needs to have a fresh, lively looking skin even though we are going through some depressing or difficult times in our lives…I hope this mask will make them magically go away.

Last week, right before the weekend began, I was invited to spend an afternoon in the Urban Decay way, while discovering their new fall 2016 launches, along with the amazing 100 shades of Vice Lipsticks (info, photos). I’ve been spoiled by Urban Decay with a makeover realized by talented Stela Ciciu with whom I had a wonderful conversation about makeup and all beauty related stuff, while my hair was handled by the already famous Laurent Tourette. I bet you’ve already seen the result of my day in my Instagram video, but just in case you haven’t go check it out and let me know what do you think. I was instantly addicted to the hot pink shade of Urban Decay Crush Vice Lipstick which I choose to wear on my lips that day and trust me when I tell you that it remained on my lips until nightfall when I had to remove my makeup. So I’m thinking I’m definitely getting this hottie shade by the end of the month and I’ll be back to show it to you guys as well in an upcoming individual review.

The other day I attended the opening of our newest mall, Park Lake and got to check all the beauty stores. My heart started beating faster when my eyes spotted the new fall 2016 collection of Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipsticks I so much praised in my past articles. I admit, I never was a lipstick gal but once in a while I can deny my lips the luxurious touch and intense color of a lipstick.

Guerlain Fall 2016 Makeup Collection also known as French Lady Collection (video) is being revealed beneath my eyes. I was so excited to see, swatch and play with the new products that I can’t believe the day has finally arrived. I’m jumping for joy as I’m writing this article as I can’t wait to be done posting and start playing with each product, dipping my fingers into that soft texture of the new Guerlain 5 Color Palettes and trying out the new Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation and Guerlain Multi Perfection Concealer with a hydrading and blurring effect. I will be telling you more about them in my next article and show you swatches like I did already on Instagram.
Ready-to-wear eyeshadow shades on the eyelids, a flawless sweep of eyeliner along the lashes, a flattering colour on the lips… the products from the Autumn 2016 Collection are the perfect allies for quick, easy and spontaneous make-up.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been enjoying the quality of my new Lancome makeup products. You know how much I appreciate nudes and pink colors and Lancome Beige Brule Hypnose Palette offers just that. The 5 eyeshadows have such a smooth and fine texture, but I prefer to tell you more about this palette in my upcoming review. As you know Lancome launched Grandiose Liner (swatches, photos) a new and innovative eye liner that I instantly become to love. I admit I’m not a talent when it comes to applying eyeliner but with Lancome Grandiose Liner things seem so much easier even for beginners.
