MAC Cosmetics celebrates this year’s Valentine’s Day by launching Betty Boop Lipstick. The new limited edition sexy red color is inspired by the iconic cartoon diva Betty Boop. I don’t know how many of my young followers know that Betty Boop was actually modeled after an Afro American singer in the 20s named Ester Jones.
U.S. Launch Date – 14 February 2017 online @maccosmetics.com
Numeric Proof Amethyst Long Last Lipstick came into my life last fall and since then I had been wearing it on several occasions.

It has a great color payoff, being fully opaque in just one swipe. It made me instantly fall in love with its pigmentation and how well and easily adheres on the skin. Continue Reading
You thought I gave up on pink? 🙂 Well this review of Essence Poppy Pink Long Lasting Lipstick proves that my love for pink lip colors will never fade. Essence is a drugstore brand that has remained dear to my heart since I was a teenager so I still like to splurge on a bunch of their makeup products from time to time. The prices are super affordable and even though we are talking about drugstore products, the quality may surprise you sometimes just like the Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks (review, swatches) surprised me with their pigmentation and long lasting power.

There’s a new trend going on with these new MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick colors and I thought of showing you another shade of my collection. I got this last year and I’ve been wearing only two or three times, so here goes my review. MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks are know to burst with color, being extremely pigmented and drying down to a total matte finish. For me the dryness feeling is what it bothers me in a matte lip color so keep on reading to see how I got along with MAC Rich & Restless color.

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.
Where to buy:

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
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.
Where to buy:
Romania – Now exclusively at Douglas Baneasa Shopping Center
U.S. – Now at Sephora
UK – Now at Selfridges
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.
