Hello babes!

Right at the end of summer, Essence presents its new Exit to Explore Trend Edition, a fall 2016 collection inspired by the colorful world of Amazon.

Too bad the collection is not launching in my country so if you are getting some of these new items, do let me know how they are.

Aquatic Makeup Look for Summer

Hello sweeties!

The other day inspired by a photo I saw while I was browsing on Instagram I pulled out my green, blue and gold eyeshadows and came up with this look. You know I rarely wear such a colorful makeup as I feel it’s a bit too edgy for me, but I admit it was a lot of fun playing with the shades, mixing textures and pairing different colors from different palettes. I do also admit it took a lot of blending, well this is always hard when you’re using bright, intense shades, so in the end I was still not happy with the results. I’m no makeup artist, just a passionate for makeup so as much as I wanted for the entire makeup to be flawless, I still know I need more practice. Take a look after the jump for a more closer look and a list of the products used for this Aquatic Makeup Look.

Essence The Beach House 2016 Summer Collection

Hello cuties!

This year no Essence limited edition collection has arrived in Romania…so I can’t help feeling jealousy whenever I’m posting about the upcoming trends like this new Essence The Beach House 2016 Summer Collection. This is one of my favorite drugstores brands and it pains me that I can’t see at least some of the new products in person in my country. If you do have the chance to travel this summer than remember to check out Essence counters as they are always releasing new stuff.


Everything is better at the beach! Clear blue skies and the endless open space of the ocean: essence will be experiencing some unforgettable moments down by the sea with the trend edition “the beach house” from mid June until mid July 2016. Aquatic turquoise and petrol, sandy shades, off-white and pink as well as coral as contrasting colours create a light, summery make-up look. Four nail polishes with maritime effects like the “water shine” finish ensure cool styles and the beach glow fluid provides sunshine girls with a light tan. And to make sure that all beach beauties don’t have to go without their favorite products when they are out and about, there’s a mini beach bag with plenty of room for essential beauty pieces. Every summer writes its own story, especially when you spend it with your best friends… and essence!
