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.

Guerlain Multi-Perfecting Concealer (170.00 Lei /€34.00/ $40.00 for 12 ml / 0.4 fl oz) is available in six shades but the ones I got are No.02 Clair Rose / Light Cool and No.04 Moyen Rose / Medium Cool. I actually got to wear the second shade a lot more that I did the first one. Probably because we are at the end of summer here and even though I didn’t go to the sea this year, I still got a light tan which makes me lean more towards a light medium shade. I will probably use No.02 Light Cool in a few months, when winter will be here. Continue Reading
Already announced as part of Guerlain Nude Fall 2016 Collection (info, photos) the new Lingerie de Peau Foundation and Multi-Perfecting Concealer have arrived today on my desk. I heard about the new formula and packaging of Guerlain Lingerie de Peau, actually one foundation that I missed trying out before and I’m really curious to see how it performs.
I’m a fan forever of Guerlain Parure Gold Compact Foundation (review, swatches) which is absolutely amazing for those with combination and oily skin types and works like a charm especially during the summer, so I wanna try out the new Lingerie de Peau. I’ve heard women saying they love or hate the previous formula of Lingerie de Peau, nothing in between, so I’m definitely looking for some love at first touch with their new formula.

Bobbi Brown comes out with this new line of Retouching Face Pencils, which is a new multi-concealer pencil. I’m actually familiar with this kind of product as MustaeV has its Spot Eraser Concealer Pencil (review, photos) that I’ve been using for months and it’s absolutely amazing. To have one multi-concealer tool with the precision of a pencil it’s absolutely wonderful as you can conceal exactly where you need it, even if we are talking about one small spot and what I love the most is that you don’t have to use too much product.
Bobbi Brown introduces Retouching Face Pencil, the ultimate on-the-go skin-perfecting tool. Inspired by Bobbi’s work as a makeup artist, this product delivers a retouched, yet totally natural look. Designed for all skin tones, the collection features 10 shades that instantly provide a variety of benefits: retouching shadows, covering redness, retouching dark spots and naturally highlighting – the Bobbi way.

If I was asked to describe MustaeV Spot Eraser Concealer Pencil in just one word, I would say that is impossible for a product that does to much, but I’m going to go with at least two words which are, precision and multi-purpose. It’s the first time ever when I get to try out a concealer pencil and even though I got this a while back, it took me about 2-3 weeks until I finally started using it. In the beginning I was, not to say skeptical but, as my favorite concealers where the creamy ones that you can apply with your fingers or those with a doe-footed applicator, I wasn’t quite sure this sleek puppy will do the trick. I couldn’t have been more wrong about it and you can keep on reading to find out why.

As you know, purple is my second favorite shade after pink, so today I wanna tease you not only with my latest MustaeV makeup products but with some of my favorite purple eye shadows as well. My new MustaeV 24 Eyeshadow Palette (review, photos) has been missing purple tones so getting these new shades surely made it look more colorful.
You’ve already seen a preview of everything I’m posting here in the video where I showed you how easy it is to depot MustaeV eyeshadows and insert them into your palette. Obviously I took the palette with me in my trip to London and I’ve been wearing the new MustaeV purple shades quite a lot so in the next few days I’ll be able to tell you more about them in individual review posts.
