Dior Treasure Diorific Matte Fluid Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

The holiday season might have ended but Dior Treasure Diorific Matte Fluid is still one of my top lip color choices. I was fascinated about Dior Diorific Matte Fluid launch as you know I blogged so much on this subject and even showed you lip swatches of all the shades long before the product hit counters. I was indeed super excited to try out the new formula and play with all the colors, minus the red Luxury shade which is not for me, but when I saw the retailed so expensive, I kind of stopped myself at only one shade. Now, almost two months later I feel like I want to buy one more shade and I was thinking of Marvel (002). Dior Diorific Matte Fluid Lip & Cheek Velvet Colour is a limited edition release part of Dior Holiday 2016 Splendor Collection (info, photos) and like the description says, you can use it both for lips and cheeks.

It has a good color payoff, but not a very rich and intense pigmentation that will look bright or totally opaque on the lips. Continue Reading

Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Lip Magnet Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

A few months ago I bought several shades of the new Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets and I completely forgot I missed to review some of them. This review is about my wonderful experience with Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Lip Magnet, a shade that’s really screaming my name and has been on my lips every week. You can check out Mania Lip Magnet (review, swatches) as well and I promise to be back with the rest of the shades next week. I was very curious about the new lip magnet formula even before they launched as I heard it’s totally a new one and more forgiving on the lips when you want that matte finish.

Although the range is a matte liquid lipstick, the formula is enriched with nutritional oils, keeping the lips soft and hydrated, unlike traditional matte lipsticks. Take your pick from the wide choice of colours for each occasion.

Giorgio Armani Eccentrico (501) Lip Magnet (£27.00 / $38.00 / 163.00 Lei for 3.9 ml / 0.13 fl oz) is a bright fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. The color is very intense, highly pigmented and comes on beautifully on the lips. Continue Reading

MAC Flamingo Road Retro Matte Lipcolour Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Just as promised, I’m back with another review of one of the new four liquid lipstick shades from MAC Kabuki Magic Collection (info, photos) that I was telling you about yesterday. Today is all about MAC Flamingo Road Retro Matte Lipcolour, a crazy and vibrant shade which I’ve been wearing a couple of times last season. I’m quite familiar with MAC Retro Matte Lipcolour formula and the true matte finish, but I can’t really say I’m feeling comfortable with that dryness sensation on my lips.

MAC Fallen Angel Retro Matte Lipcolour Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

It’s been months since I’ve been wearing the edgy color of MAC Fallen Angel Retro Matte Lipcolour on my lips. This is one of the four new Retro Matte Lipcolour shades (swatches / photos) launching later this month as part of MAC Make-up Art Cosmetics Collection (official info / photos). I have to admit that it took me a while to get comfortable wearing this color, because it looks so dark and mysterious on my lips…totally different that the sweetness of pink shades that I was used to. I was surprised to receive so many compliments right from the first time I wore this shade and I guess people who have seen me then thought I’d totally changed my makeup style. After more than two months of wearing this shade I can say that we’ve become close friends and I often reach for it and pair it with a light, casual and nude makeup look. I bet you’ve already seen my on Instagram wearing this shade, but keep on reading for the entire review and lip swatches.

MAC Dahhlinggg Mariah Carey Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello babes!

Like many out there, I was into MAC Holiday 2016 Mariah Carey Collection (info, photos) from the moment I saw the sneak peek photos. With a bling bling, glittery silver packaging like this and nude colors, I knew right away I had so save some money. I already told you how I got to buy only a few products from this collection and what adventure that was. 🙂 Like any makeup junkie of MAC fan, I was definitely swiped away by what I name “one of the most appropriate holiday packaging” and that gorgeous butterfly packaging on the lipsticks. This collection was sold out in a bling of an eye in most countries, and the star products didn’t take more than a few days to disappear off counters even here in Romania. MAC Dahhlinggg lipstick was one of the two lip colors I had to check from my wishlist so I was extremely happy that I could find it available (as the last piece) a few days after the collection launched. None of the products from this collection benefit from MUA discount, so you’ll just have to get it at full price, no matter what.

mac-dahhlinggg-mariah-carey-lipstick-review-1

MAC Dahhlinggg! Lipstick ($20.00 / 99.00 Lei for 0.10 oz.) is officially described as a pinky peach with a cremesheen finish. I personally see it as a light pinky-peach with slightly warm undertones and a natural sheen. On me it had semi-opaque color coverage which didn’t apply quite even on my lips. On some parts it looked streaky, showing on and settling into lip lines. Continue Reading

Guerlain Spring 2017 Happy Glow Collection Swatches, Preview

Hello cuties!

Guerlain Spring 2017 Happy Glow Collection (official info / photos) will hit the counters pretty soon, so I thought I’d finally give you a closer look, a couple of swatches and my first impression overall. I was so anxious to post about this collection, since last month when I got to see it in person, but as I told you on Instagram when I posted the video, I was asked to post pone the article until January 2017. This is a capsule collection which pays tribute to Meteorites 30th Anniversary, so it includes only a couple of products. As you might have read on my blog, there’s a second Guerlain makeup collection launching later in spring. So if you’re craving for more take a first look at Guerlain Spring 2017 La Petite Robe Noire Collection (info, photos).
