MAC Burnt Violet Liptensity Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello lovelies!

Another week, a new stop by MAC Cosmetics counter and this time I was to check out in person the latest collections and to swatch MAC Liptensity Lipsticks so I can pick a favorite. You can take a look here for swatches of all 24 MAC Liptensity Lipstick colors but it’s so much better when you’ll see these in person. When I picked MAC Burnt Violet Liptensity Lipstick I have already promised to myself that the second half of fall will be dedicate to more darker and edgy colors and I’ll try to keep away from pink as much as possible. So far I was able to keep the promise to myself and most of my recent purchases included nude, plum or deep wine and burgundy colors. To tell you the truth I was excited about MAC Liptensity since I first received the info and somehow I kinda compared these with Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks (video, live swatches) only that they are so much more pigmented.

Urban Decay Firebird Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

A new color addition to my lipstick collection is Urban Decay Firebird Vice Lipstick. It’s the kind of color that you know I like to wear, the more intense the better and if it’s pink then it’s perfect. It surely seems that my Urban Decay Vice Lipstick addiction continues so expect more reviews in the upcoming weeks as I have my eyes on some new natural shades.

NYX Pink Lust, Run The World, Subversive Socialite, Alien Liquid Suede Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello cuties!

It was about time to review my new NYX Liquid Suede colors since it has been more than a month since I did that NYX makeup haul. I’ve been testing these colors and wore them for a few days right after I bought them but I kinda prioritized other articles so I’m so sorry I’m late on this review. NYX Liquid Suede are already famous liquid lipsticks and they were available until last year in 12 shades. Well so it happens that NYX has extended the color range for Liquid Suede Cream lipsticks with 12 new more shades this year. I picked up three of the new shades and one of permanent colors which you can see lined in the photo bellow so if you are curious for lip swatches and more details follow me after the jump.

NYX Doll Eye Mascara Review, Swatch, Photos

Hello beauties!

A new mascara that I got to try out since NYX Cosmetics opened its first store in Bucharest was NYX Doll Eye Mascara. What I loved from the start about this mascara is that on the packaging it shows a photo with its brush so you can very well see the bristles and decide if this is something that you would wear. I’m actually quite picky when it comes to mascara wands so if I don’t like the bristles I don’t even bother to try the product. I do admit is not a healthy attitude because there are times when a new mascara can surprise you and give you big, fat lashes.

Hello doll-face! For irresistibly fluttery eyelashes try this mascara on for size. Doll Eye Mascara uses a unique blend of natural oils Vitamin E and nylon fibers to extend eyelashes to almost faux proportions. Choose from lengthening volumizing or waterproof versions.

Urban Decay Heroine Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

I told you earlier that the second half of the fall season will be dedicated to edgy, dark and mysterious lip colors. Urban Decay Heroine Vice Lipstick is a shade that I know it can be out of your comfort zone, and no one understands it better than me. I’m feeling comfortable wearing pink, purples and nudes but this season I just want to play with all the colors for lips and eyes and discover that is actually fun to refresh and revamp your makeup style. Halloween is close so Heroine could be a perfect choice for a dark and bold lip.

NYX Sugar Cookie, Blackberry Pie Butter Gloss Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Since NYX opened its first store in Bucharest I’ve been visiting the counter pretty often and since I already showed you my latest NYX makeup haul, it was time for some product reviews. In the beginning of this fall I was in the mood for some dark, even black lip colors as well as hot pink shades, while later on I started shopping for colors that I wouldn’t even seen myself wearing a month ago. 🙂 So let me show you these two NYX Butter Gloss shades in Sugar Cookie and Blackberry Pie that were so fun to wear alone and even mixed together.

MustaeV In The Club Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

For me this fall is all about a colorful eye makeup and dark, mysterious and edgy colors for the lips, so I thought of introducing MustaeV In The Club Eyeshadow which has been often seen in my makeup looks this season. You’ll probably find it strange that I’m all of the sudden into blue, green and other shades that were not even on my list a couple of months back…but the truth is not that I’ve given up to my pink and purple obsession but I’ve decided to add a little bit more color to makeup looks and play with the colors that I was usually ignoring.

Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello cuties!

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge new lipstick collection impressed me with the new packaging and variation of colors long before they launched in the stores. I couldn’t helped putting Lancome Rose Lancome L’Absolu Rouge on my wishlist since this is one of their iconic lipstick shades, a symbol of accomplishment, a rare and precious pink, like a pure moment of happiness. I bought it from Douglas perfumery with a 20% discount for being a beauty card owner and I honestly couldn’t imagine it will swatch pink since it look more like a red in the tube. I already had a beautiful violet shade with a sheer finish (Lancome Impertinente L’Absolu Rouge review) from the same range and I wanted a rosy pink hue, something that will look vibrant yet classy at the same time and with a cream finish, definitely a cream finish with a natural sheen.
