Hello sweeties!

Since I saw the first sneak peek photo of Guerlain Fall 2016 Collection my eyes and heart were set on Guerlain Rose Barbare 5 Couleurs Palette.

Hello pretties!

Yesterday it was a bit of a rainy day here in Bucharest and so I was in the mood to play with some gray and darker colors for a new makeup tutorial.

Kinetics One Night Girl Solar Gel Nail Polish, Review, Swatches, Before & After Photos

Hello sweeties!

Kinetics One Night Girl Solar Gel Nail Polish is what I can call a vibrant and classy red shade. I have to admit that I’m not so bold to be wearing red on my nails pretty often, but Kinetics One Night Girl was hard to resist. This is definitely one of the star polishes of Kinetics Rio Rio Summer 2016 Collection (swatches, info, photos) as it’s not only rich, pigmented and with an amazing formula but last beautifully on the nails for more than one week.

Kinetics One Night Girl Solar Gel Nail Polish (€6.00/ 25.00 Lei/ £3.60 for 15 ml/ 0.5 fl oz) is a medium-deep red with warm undertones and shiny gel-like finish. It’s a rich, intense and truly pigmented nail lacquer that looks beautifully and opaque in a single coat.

Guerlain Coque D’Or 5 Couleurs Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Guerlain Fall 2016 Collection (swatches, info) features six new variations of 5 Couleur Palettes and as promised I’ll be reviewing them individually. Today I’m presenting my review for Guerlain Coque D’Or 5 Couleurs Palette which comes in this extremely elegant black, luscious compact (hard to photograph by the way). Each of the 5 shades can be applied alone (wet or dry) or layered to create a perfect harmony. This season Guerlain revamps the format of its eyeshadow palettes and creates the new 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes which feature 1 base to smooth out and illuminate, 2 nude shades and 2 smoky shades so you can create a smouldering look or perfect smoky eye. Each shade has a different texture so in one palette you’ll find matte, satin or metallic finishes.

Guerlain Fall In Nude (500) Kiss Kiss Lipstick (185.00 Lei / $37.00 / €37.00 for 3.5 g / 0.12 oz) is officially described as a tender nude pink.
