MustaeV Pleasure Mask Review

Hello beauties!

MustaeV is a Korean brand that I hold dear to my heart and I bet you saw me mentioning their wonderful products many times in my reviews or beauty looks. This year they decided to expand their range of products and move on the skincare section actually, which got me super excited, knowing how famous and super quality Asian skincare products are. A few months ago MustaeV introduced four Sheet Face Masks that should be applied according to your mood. I had to admit I was surprised by the idea of trying out a face mask according to your mood and I actually got curious to see how they perform. So after a late night party on the previous day I knew I would start my day with MustaeV Moisture-Lifting Pleasure Mask. I told you guys my first impressions that day on Instagram when I first posted about the MustaeV Pleasure Sheet Mask and ever since I was longing for a couple more of this one, especially since December is party month for me with my birthday coming up and holiday season.

Giorgio Armani Mania Lip Magnet Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

I admit that sometimes I embrace trends just for the sake of blogging…I mean there are products that I know I won’t use but I buy them anyway because I’m a beauty blogger and I need to test and review them so I can have an opinion on their performance. I kinda of said that matte lip products are not my thing, not because I don’t like the matte finish but the dryness sensation and look of the lips is killing me. With Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets (info, prom photos) I had a feeling that things will be different so I was quite anxious for the collection to launch in London so I can get my hands on a couple of shades. I knew the Armani Lip Magnets will hit Romanian counters as well but I couldn’t wait another month to try them on so I had a friend who purchased a few shades for me from London.

MAC Preserving Passion Versicolour Lip Stain Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello cuties!

MAC Preserving Passion Versicolour Lip Stain was a new purchase of mine from the limited edition MAC Versicolour Stain 2016 Summer Collection (info, photos) which unfortunately hit counters in Romania so very late, in the middle of fall. I kinda new and documented myself upon every shade since this collection was released in time internationally and was on the counters in summer. I already told you this season is about trying on new lip colors, something different than my favorite pinks, purples and nudes so MAC Preserving Passion seemed challenging. I already gave you a sneak peek of my recent MAC haul but there’s a new one coming up, that I didn’t had time to photograph yet.

NYX Black Lips Lip Pencil Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

A black lip liner is not something that you’ll go shopping for everyday, is it?! But since I got into this trend of wearing black lips this season a black lip liner was a must so I bought NYX Black Lips Retractable Lip Pencil about two months ago when NYX opened its first store in my city. I got a retractable lip liner which is a mechanical one, just because this is what they had in black at NYX counter but I wouldn’t mind using a sharpener for a classic lip pencil. NYX Retractable Lip Pencil comes in 19 rich pigmented shades so you can choose any other color to match your lipstick if you like.

Shu Uemura Grapefruit Pink CR330 Rouge Unlimited Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I know you may not believe me but this is my first Shu Uemura lipstick. I’ve been blogging about this brand for years but the products are not available in many countries and they don’t ship internationally so it took me a while to get my hands on them. Shu Uemura Grapefruit Pink CR 330 Lipstick comes in a gorgeous color and I thank my friend Gio from beautifulwithbrains.com for giving it to me. Everytime I traveled I managed to buy Shu Uemura skincare but I didn’t have any money left for the makeup as well.

Melkior After Dark Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Last month at Cosmetic Beauty Hair 2016 Exhibition, Melkior exclusively launched their new, edgy shade of After Dark Lipstick. You’ve all seen that this season dark lips are a trend and it’s not unusual to paint your lips in black. I actually went shopping for several black shades myself, either lip glosses, liquid lipsticks or matte lipsticks and I’ve been trying them on for the last month or so. I know people kinda look strange at me when they see me wearing black lips so I tend to reserve this look for the second part of the day and especially during the evening when I go out.

MAC Doe Liptensity Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello babes!

With the promise in mind to keep away from buying new pink lip colors for the second half of Autumn, I went to MAC counter and picked two shades from the newly released MAC Liptensity Lipstick collection (swatches, photos). MAC Doe Liptensity Lipstick came as a natural choice of a nude color that I could wear on a casual day. Basically when I’m not wearing a pink lip, my next best choice is a nude color but I’m trying to change that and be more creative and that’s why I also bought this dark and edgy shade of MAC Burnt Violet Liptensity Lipstick (review, swatches).
