Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation & Stick Foundation

Hello beauties!

Make Up For Ever takes the beauty industry one step further and announced the launch of the new Ultra HD Foundation in both liquid and stick formula. I had the previous edition of Make Up For Ever HD Foundation (review, photos) and used it for about a year or so, occasionally as it really looked shiny on my combination skin type. I know so many of you must like the MUFE HD Foundation and for me it performed better only through the winter but I’m still not discouraged and I’m willing to give the new Ultra HD Foundation a try and hoping this one will get along better with my skin and won’t start to shine within two hours after the application.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water SPF 30 and 24-Hour CC Spot Concealer

Hello beauties!

Two more newness are joining the new Smashbox Summer 2015 Collection this month and I’m talking about Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water SPF 30 and 24 Hour CC Spot Concealer. For those of you who like a natural coverage with a light texture Smashbox has created the new Camera Ready BB Water Broad Spectrum SPF 30 with an ultra-hydrating formula. Judging from its description this would be perfect for summer but I don’t know if my combination skin type would benefit from such a hydrating formula and won’t start to shine after a while.

MAC Studio Waterweight Foundation SPF 30

Hello beauties!

Starting from fall 2015, MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation is ready to join the famous Studio lineup. I actually saw this new foundation in person last week at MAC Autumn Winter 2015 Trends event (info, photos, video) and I had more than a peak. This is actually a foundation that I might feel comfortable wearing as it doesn’t have a full coverage and provides a natural finish, something that will feel lightweight on the skin. I’ll definitely have to get my shade once it hits counters.

The latest product in our Studio lineup blows the competition out of the water. Introducing M∙A∙C Studio Waterweight  SPF 30 Foundation – an innovative foundation that delivers colour in an ultra-fluid, elegantly thin, elastic gel serum formula.

With stay-true colour and sheer medium buildable coverage, it softly blurs imperfections such as pores and fine lines. The addition of  Moisture Fusion Complex provides immediate and all-day hydration, leaving skin feeling quenched and soft, supple, silky to the touch.

Why I Hate MustaeV!

Hello lovelies!

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time now, but I kept postponing it with every new MustaeV makeup product I tried, hoping at least one of them will stop me from confessing the truth. I Hate MustaeV! There it is…I said it, finally after more than one year of trying out and using their products. You’ve seen me wearing MustaeV in mostly every makeup look that I’ve done, you read my reviews and not one week passes without testing out a new MustaeV product but I never actually told you how I truly felt inside until today.

Well, MustaeV, you can’t stop me from telling everyone how I feel about you as a brand and especially about your products. There will be silence no more as over the past year and a half since I met you I’ve gather evidence to support my case so nor you or anyone can convince me otherwise as much as they want.

Mustaev-I-Hate-Your-Products

Here’s my story, until this very moment when I decided it’s time to lay everything out in the open so anyone who dares to purchase and wear your makeup will know what they are getting into.

Givenchy Teint Couture Balm 2015

Hello sweeties!

Givenchy launches an entirely new collection based on the new Givenchy Teint Couture Balm. Presented as the first blurring foundation balm, Givenchy Teint Couture Balm has a lightweight finish for the face while naturally enhances skin. Lately more and more brands are focusing on releasing makeup products which offers a light natural coverage and honestly these are my personal favorites as I’ve never been a fan of full coverage foundations. Famous model Mariacarla Boscono was once again chosen to represent a Givenchy makeup collection and you can see her with a perfect, luminous and natural makeup in the promo promo ad.

Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

After months of testing and wearing I’m finally writing my review for Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation, a product that I received last year at a beauty event hosted by my friend Ana Maria from BeautyBarometer. I’m quite familiar with most of Max Factor foundations and if you read my blog from the beginning you will surely remember how deeply I was affected by Max Factor Second Skin Foundation (review, swatches) being discontinued a few years back, as for me was the best natural coverage foundation, a product that I genuinely loved. When it comes to reviews I always get lazy for some reason, even though in this case I truly used this product a couple of times a month and this is not the only one who waited patiently to be reviewed as I have a few things to say about Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation (swatches) as well.
