NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Since NYX opened its first store here in Bucharest Park Lake Mall I honestly got to try out a lot more products than I used too, some of them sent for consideration and others that I bought myself. To tell you the truth I thought I’d not be using NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand anytime soon as it was at the bottom of my review list and somehow I had a feeling that I wouldn’t be impressed by this product. One day while I was in a hurry and reaching out for a new lipstick shade from my Hello Kitty bucket (this is where I keep my lip products that are waiting to be tested & reviewed) I stumble upon this concealer which I obviously misplaced. So since it was already sitting right there I thought, OK let’s give it an early try and see what it can do. This is one drugstore product that really impressed me so I thought it definitely needs to be reviewed ASAP.

NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand (29.00 Lei / $5.00 for 3 g /0.11 oz) in CW04 Beige is a nude, neutral beige best suitable for light skin tones. The color is a perfect match for my skin color so no worries here. There are 12 shades to choose from so that’s definitely a plus for the color range, anyone can find a matching shade to go with their complexion. Continue Reading

MustaeV Gumball Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

A while ago I decided to pick something more vibrant from MustaeV and try out some colorful eyeshadows, just to get out of my comfort zone where pink, purple and nudes where everywhere. So I decided to try out MustaeV Gumball Eyeshadow among other shades that I told you about HERE. I know I’m not wearing a blue colors so often but I’m trying to put some color into my makeup looks this season, as I’m sure you’ve seen me recently wearing a deep blue smoky makeup (tutorial).

Urban Decay Anarchy Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

I’m crazy over hot pink shades like Urban Decay Anarchy Vice Lipstick over here so since I already had the Urban Decay Anarchy 24/ 7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (review, swatches) I said why not get the matching lip color as well. I personally went to buy a couple of new Vice Lipsticks from Sephora earlier this month since you guys already now I’m totally addicted to them right now.

Melkior Prune, Gold Rush Eyeshadows Review, Photos, Swatches

Hello pretties!

Melkior Eyeshadows are already famous for being intensely pigmented and for having such a great price. So, I’m here today just to show my two new eyeshadow colors in Prune and Gold Rush that I received from Melkior when I visited their booth at Cosmetic Beauty Hair 2016 Edition. I’ve posted a lot of photos that day, sneak peeks and swatches of Melkior After Dark Lipstick, their newest color that just launched this month. I got my two new eye colors as refills along with a magnetic eyeshadow palette which I can customize and place all my go-to Melkior eyeshadows in there. The price for a refill eyeshadow is 17.00 Lei or if you get the single eyeshadow in standard packaging you will pay 27.00 lei but there are various discount codes on the internet that can get you a 10% sale and free shipping, not to mention that Melkior often does promotions for its products.

Urban Decay Conspiracy Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to expand my Urban Decay Vice Lipstick Collection so I went shopping for new shades. I was aiming for a new hot pink and something more down to earth, a nude that would be wearable during the day. When I stopped by Sephora, I noticed that some of the shades I had on my list were sold out so I decided to try on Urban Decay Conspiracy Vice Lipstick with a metallic finish, one that would be new to my collection. I instantly fall in love with the color which you must admit is kinda special, since I don’t get to see a lot of brown shades like this everyday. 🙂
