I’m no stranger to NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils (review, swatches) as I’ve gathered a couple of shades over the years, but the No.627 Cobalt shade is definitely new for me. I received this one along with a bunch of new NYX items at the opening event of first NYX store in Bucharest. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are cheap and offer a wide variety of colors, so it’s impossible to say you haven’t found your right shade.
Where to buy:
U.S. – Now at ULTA and @nyxcosmetics.com
UK – Now at Boots, Selfridges
Romania – Now at ParkLake Mall (Bucharest) | City Park Mall (Constanta)
NYX Cobalt Jumbo Eye Pencil ($4.50 / 25.00 Lei for 5 g / 0.18 oz) is medium aquatic-blue with some green undertones and a silver sparkle. It has a good color payoff, being rich and intense in just one swipe. It adheres well onto the skin and even though it has some glitter particles it shows now fall-out during the application.

Last week was market entirely by NYX Cosmetics on my calendar. Not only did I go to their opening store party but I went back to the store the day after and did some heavy NYX shopping (photo tease) which will result in a beauty haul soon to be posted on the blog. NYX Cosmetics recently opened their first store in Bucharest in ParkLake Plaza Mall (video tour), which is actually the second store in the country after the one in Constanta. I bet you’ve already seen the photos I posted two weeks ago from the opening store event, showing you swatches of my favorite NYX Liquid Suede lip colors (upcoming reviews) and giving you a peek inside the store. If you haven’t been to the store yet, it’s definitely worth checking it out and don’t forget to subscribe to their program and get your NYX card so you can benefit from all the future promotions and accumulate points so you can later redeem makeup products.
Here are my latest NYX makeup products that were offered me for consideration so keep refreshing my blog for upcoming reviews. I will also be posting soon my NYX makeup haul and show all of the goodies I brought home with me, joined my swatches and a quick preview. I’m already done testing the three NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream colors and you can check out the swatches bellow in case you haven’t already seen them on Instagram the other week. I’m not a fan of a matte finish when it comes to my lips but these were brilliant, so I went back and got some more shades. Continue Reading
I got to try out the amazing Charlotte Tilbury Rock’n’Khol Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil thanks to BritishBeautyBlogger who offered me the product a few months back when we met for a cup of coffee. I admitted to her that I never tried Charlotte Tilbury products before and she simply said “Tavia, you just have to try this one”…so I knew it will be amazing. She gave me the Black Magic shade which comes as a mini eye pencil and is part of Charlotte Tilbury Nocturnal Cat Eyes to Hypnotise ($39.00 / 29.00) which also includes the Silver Leopard Eyeshadow.
Where to buy:
Now online @charlottetilbury.com
Charlotte Tilbury Black Magic Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil is officially described as an “intense petrol shade.” It’s a deep black with cool undertones and blue shimmer. It has a good color payoff, nice pigmentation and definitely a special twist thanks to that navy shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage when swatched but you can easily build it up to an opaque coverage if you layer it two-three times. Continue Reading
If earlier today I was showing you the new MUFE Pink Fever Collection which is totally dedicated to lips, now I’m back with new spring 2016 Make Up For Ever products for eyes. As from this month you will find at Sephora the new Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara and Aqua Eye Pencil XL in colorful shades. Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara coats your lashes with an intense black formula in one coat, providing an optimal amount of mascara from root to tip. At the same time the brush doubles as a comb, separating eyelashes without clumping, allowing a unique level of precision. You lashes will have an instant volume, with a dramatically fan-like effect.
International Launch Date – mid March 2016 at Sephora Continue Reading

If you are a Chicprofile reader the fact that Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is now available in Romania is no longer a news to you since early October 2015 when Eduardo Ferreira came here at the pre-launch event to present the best-selling Bobbi Brown makeup products. Back in the December, though, the brand hosted the official store opening for Bobbi Brown boutique in Baneasa Shopping Center (ground floor, next to Chanel) and you saw how everything went from my Periscope broadcast. So I won’t make this post about the glamorous store opening evening, but for some of the best-selling Bobbi Brown makeup products which are part of the permanent collection.
