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.
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.
I want to introduce you to the world of Melkior makeup. Who wants to come with me? These are my new products that I’m currently testing and once I’m done you will know all about it in my individual reviews. This summer Melkior suggests crazy intense shades as they unveiled their new Indian Summer Collection (info, photos) so I thought of trying out some new shades, different than the ones I’m usually wearing.

If you want a lipstick with a luxurious formula then you should definitely consider Dolce & Gabbana Classi Cream Lipsticks as they among my favorite ones when it comes to high-end lipsticks. Only last year D&G improved the formula of its classic cream lipsticks so this brand proves again there’s always room for improvement in achieving a perfect formula. The golden mirror-like metal case expressed pure luxury and elegance and I’m so in love with this type of packaging even though is hard to photograph.

Dolce & Gabbana Ballerina (245) Classic Cream Lipstick ($33.50 / £25.50 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-deep pink red with cool undertones with a satin finish. The color cover is absolutely fantastic and it gives a nice opaque coverage in just one swipe. Even though I couldn’t quite catch that pink tone of Ballerina shade, this one is wearable for even skin color. Continue Reading

As a light skin tone I’m leaning more towards the softer shades, the first two, but I would also try that bright magenta. All the lip colors also double as cheek colors for those who prefer a creamy lip blush and they have a good color payoff with a glossy finish. Continue Reading
This season Collistar launches Art Design Lipstick Collection which features 18 new lip shades with a creamy texture and an intense and highly pigmented color but also the same number of complementary lip liner shades. There is a shade for everyone in this new Collistart Art Design lipstick line, from nudes and naturals to soft peachy and pink shades which are perfect for a fresh everyday look to those intense and bright fuchsia, orange and corals which are perfect for summer and dark red, brown or chestnut that will give you an instant elegant, classy or mysterious look. The Italian actress Margaret Made was chosen as the face of Collistart Art Design Lipstick campaign.
Lips like a ‘Work of Art’, with the help of this exquisite, irresistibly appealing, high-performance lipstick. Its attractive design is a small masterpiece of Italian-made creativity. An additional winning factor is its pleasant, creamy and enveloping texture and its full, vibrant colour that makes the lips instantly more sensual. Day by day, thanks to the precious red berry extract, it reduces fine lines and redesigns the lips, leaving them fuller and smoother. The set also contains a Professional Lip Pencil in a shade that matches the Lipstick perfectly.

The launch of Lacome Shine Love is one of spring 2015’s most expected for me personally as I’ve always been a fan of lip products, not especially lipsticks but lip glosses. Now the new Lancome Shine Love promises to be more than a lipstick while it offers an intense shine and the hydration of a lip balm. You will find shades for every skin tone from popping pinks to fuchsia and rosy beiges, that will melt into the lips in a natural color, that will instantly illuminate a woman’s complexion.
The secret of these shades’ radiance lies in their coloured pearl pigments combined with a translucent base, to bring out all the vitality of beautifully sheer pinks and red. While white pearl pigments tend to reduce colour intensity, these coloured pearl pigments with their transparent base truly infuse the colours with illuminating depth. Brimming with colour and radiance, the Shine Lover shades create the most mouth-watering of bitten-lip effects – a true healthy-glow booster! Their names echo all the different facets of the Lancôme woman: unique and sublime, with a hint of mischief. The tricky part is knowing which one to choose first…

Dolce & Gabbana launches this month Dolce Matte Lipstick, its first matte lipstick line. The new Dolce & Gabbana matte lipstick delivers an opaque color coverage and envelops lips in an intense shade while keeping lips hydrated and soft. It seems to have quite an interesting formula that promises to be creamy as usually a matte finish lipstick has a dry texture and doesn’t glide so easily across the lips. Inspired by the rich red hue of Dolce & Gabbana fashion collections the upcoming Dolce Matte Lipstick line offers a palette of reds that is definitely worth taking a look at.
UK Launch Date – 5 March 2015 at Harrods and online @harrods.com
US Launch Date – March 2015 at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus
