Melkior Mystic Lip Pen Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Melkior Mystic Lip Pen came into my life in early fall 2014 when Melkior launched this new line and even though I did use it quite a few times back then, I kept forgetting to review it. I won’t go easy on this product, but I will honestly tell you what I like and especially what I don’t like about it.

Tom Ford Night Sky Cream and Powder Eye Color Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I knew I wanted Tom Ford Night Sky Cream and Powder Eye Color so badly since I saw the visual of Tom Ford Noir Holiday 2015 Makeup (info, photos). The brand is not available here so I knew it will be tough to find someone who will ship me the product, but I knew how much I wanted it so my search began. Tom Ford Night Sky (01) Cream and Powder Eye Color is a limited edition release part of Tom Ford Beauty Noir Collection (info, photos). When I was in London, back in November I wanted to get it but since the holiday 2015 collection was not released yet, I was just happy to take a look at the other Tom Ford makeup products and do some swatches and testing.

MustaeV Clear Glazing Lip Gloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

If MustaeV Glazing Lip Glosses have a downsize, is that they have only two shades available…Clear, that I’ll be reviewing today and Golden Peach (review, swatches) one of my all time favorite gloss shades. Yeah, you got that right, only two shades for this amazing product…but I’m still waiting for MustaeV to come up with a gorgeous pink.

MustaeV Clear Glazing Lip Gloss ($18.00 for 4.5 ml) is a clear shade with lustrous shine, without any shimmer. Why does a clear lip gloss needs a review? Because it’s a versatile product, that I like to use it not only on the lips but also on the eyes. Continue Reading

YSL Le Rouge (01) Pur Couture Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I quite got the taste for YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick formula, after I got me the Fuchsia (19) shade (review, swatches) two months ago, so recently I added YSL Le Rouge (01) to my high-end lipstick collection. A luxurious lipstick, a best selling shade, that became the ultimate weapon for uncompromising seduction.

Guerlain Fall in Rose (366) Kiss Kiss Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello lovelies!

Guerlain Fall in Rose (366) Kiss Kiss Lipstick is a new addition to my Guerlain Kiss Kiss Collection (info, photos). Originally released back in 2014, as a fall collection, the line consists of new and permanent 25 lip shades. Guerlain Fall in Rose Kiss Kiss is one of the most popular color from the Kiss Kiss lipstick line, a title truly deserved.

Guerlain Fall in Rose (366) Kiss Kiss Lipstick (181.00 Lei / €38.00 / $37.00 / £26.50 for 2.8 g / 0.09 oz) is a medium tea-peachy color with a luminous natural shine, satin finish and without any shimmer. Many will say that Fall in Rose is a peachy pink shade, but on me it looks more on the nude peachy, beige side with warm undertones. I don’t see it at all as a pink on my lips and that’s got to do with my pH as well. Continue Reading

Dior Rose Garden Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I guess you already know by now that I purchased the limited edition Dior Rose Garden Eyeshadow Palette (unboxing video) featured in Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016 Collection (info, visuals) right before Christmas as a present to myself. I also got the other Dior 5 Couleurs Glowing Garden Palette in No.031 Blue Garden (review). Once again, I decided to buy this makeup palette for its gorgeous floral pattern and for review purposes, so I can see for myself if it’s really high quality and you guys should have it or not when it hits counters in your country.

Dior Blue Garden Eyeshadow Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I got me the new, limited edition Dior Blue Garden Eyeshadow Palette (unboxing video) featured in Dior Glowing Gardens Spring 2016 Collection (info, visuals) as a Christmas present a couple of weeks ago along with the other Dior 5 Couleurs Glowing Garden Palette in No.451 Rose Garden (upcoming review). Since I first posted about Dior Glowing Gardens Collection and I saw these two palettes I knew I’ll have to buy them…but not because of the color combination, as I will tell you truthfully right from the start they are not my kind of shades, but because of the gorgeous floral pattern and the curiosity to try them out and see if they are high quality and especially to be able to post reviews for you guys.

Guerlain Kiss Kiss 325 Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

What a joy to finally be able to try out the new Guerlain Lait de Beaute, a new satin milk pure radiance cleanser which was released last year as part of Guerlain De Beaute Skincare Collection (info, photos). This post is actually about the classic Guerlain Kiss Kiss No.325 Lipstick shade which I received as a deluxe sample size along with the cleansing milk (30 ml / 1 fl oz) at the #MakeupSecretSantaByBeautyBarometer (movie) event back in December hosted by my friend and beauty blogger Ana Maria from BeautyBarometer. I left the party with a bunch of beauty gifts that you’ve already seen on my Periscope, but some of them will return here on the blog as individual reviews in the upcoming weeks.

I would say this color would be perfect for any skin tone and color as day to day color, is not very intense and it really warms up the face. Continue Reading
