As you already know from my previous articles Clinique has launched a couple of new products for Summer 2013 that will be finally available in Romania this month. The other day I received a couple of these products for testing and review purposes so before I will post my individual reviews I wanted to make a quick preview article and show you what are the novelties for this summer and what I’ll be reviewing in the upcoming weeks.
Clinique CC Cream SPF 50 (official info & promo photos) is available in US since March 2013 at Clinique counters and online @clinique.com and in Romania it will be available exclusively at Sephora in June and July and afterwards it can be found also at Douglas, Marionnaud and B&B. The new Clinique CC Cream comes in a 40 ml/ 1.4 fl oz tube and retails for $35.00/ 117.00 Lei. I received the shade light medium and I hope it will match my light complexion as I haven’t yet tried this product. I’m planning on wearing it a couple of times and hopefully next week I will post my review. Continue Reading
As I told you earlier in my preview of Kardashian Beauty/ Khroma Beauty lip products (swatches) I’m new to this brand and this Joystick Lip Lacquer in Nude Beach is one of the first product I tested. I received this product along with a Lip Set in natural shades for testing and review purposes. For those of you who didn’t know yet Khroma Beauty was renamed into Kardashian Beauty but I received this product which has the old packaging of Khroma Beauty.
Khroma Beauty’s new Joystick Lipstick is super Intense long lasting lip color goes on like a cream and lasts through all the fun and games. Gain complete mastery over your lip color with a flick of your Joystick.
Kardashian Beauty/ Khroma Beauty Joystick Lip Lacquer in Nude Beach (€ 13.95 for 1 gram) is a light golden beige shade with a creamy almost buttery like texture. It has a medium color coverage on the lips, providing a natural shiny finish for those who enjoy a nude color with a golden pearly shine. The formula is quite creamy and it glides easily on the lips without settling into lip lines. My lips felt smooth and soft without being drying. It also applied with even, smooth color coverage, and it felt comfortable to wear. Nude Beach lasted four hours well on me, it didn’t stained my lips or left them dry. Continue Reading
At the beginning of this week I presented you the New Parisax Summer 2013 Lipstick shades (preview & lip swatches) and I promised you I’ll be reviewing my favorite shades in the upcoming days. After wearing Parisax Lipstick in #14 Goyave for the past few days I’m ready to give you my detailed review so if you are into natural colors keep reading.
Now @parisax.com, @completebeauty.ro, @parisax.fr
Parisax Lipstick in #14 Goyave ( € 10.70/ 57.00 Lei) is a sheer light golden peach shade just perfect for a natural, nude everyday look. The consistency is creamy so it glides easily across the lips providing a sheer color coverage. It feels lightweight on the lips but tends to settle a bit into lip lines but it keeps them soft and moisturized. If you are in the mood for a fresh natural summery shade with just a hint of golden peach on your lips then Parisax Goyave lipstick is your shade. Goyave lasted 5 hours on me without drying or staining my lips. Continue Reading
The other week I received a package from Kardashian Beauty, a brand that was recently changed its name from Khroma Beauty. I admit I never tried any products from this brand before as they are not available in my country just yet but I did read a few reviews about them and I’ve watched two or three videos on Youtube where beauty bloggers where talking about these products.
I received only lip products and they have the old packaging of Khroma Beauty but from what I’ve heard the new packaging will be signed Kardashian Beauty so I’m looking forward to seeing it. The PR sent me the Joystick Lipsticks in Nude Beach (€ 13.95 for 1 gram) and the Au Naturel In the Nude Lip Set (€ 17.95) which contains a lip gloss and a double ended lipstick and lip liner.
I played a little bit with these products, swatched them and photographed them while in the last couple of days I tested the Joystick Lipstick and I will post my review soon. As a quick preview I’ll tell you that all these lip products come in very natural shades of light golden beige, or natural light brown so if you are into nude shades you might like them.
The packaging looks a little bit cheap in my opinion and I really think they could have done a better job as I don’t see any of the Kardashian sisters using these products even though some of them come in the shades I often saw Kim wearing it. Continue Reading
As you already know from my previous post Parisax released a New Summer 2013 Makeup Collection (info & promo photos) featuring bright new 2013 summery nail lacquers (preview & photos), 12 new lip glosses (upcoming preview & swatches) and 6 new lipsticks. I know most of you are interested in the new Parisax lipstick shades so last week I decided to pay a visit to Parisax Professional and see the new colors in person. I must tell you they all look lovely and ready for summer even though some of them are more pigmented and opaque on the lips while others are more natural, provide a softer color and they feel so soft on the lips.
I’ve taken photos and played with every new shade and I even tried each shade on my lips so I can show you photos with lip swatches and you can form your own opinion about these new lipstick colors. I’ve also brought home with me 3 of my favorite shades so I will post my individual reviews later on this week.
Romania Launch Date – now @parisax.com, @completebeauty.ro
International Launch Date – now @parisax.fr
Check out photos of the lip swatches right after the break. Continue Reading
Today I’m going to finally review my all time favorite lipstick La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour in Geranium. Most of you know me as a lip gloss girl and I can honestly say that I don’t own more than 10 lipsticks from which most of them were received for review purposes. With La Prairie things have always been different for me. I’m a huge fan and customer of their skincare products as I’m sure you’ve noticed from my reviews but since I’ve tried a couple of their makeup items a few years back I’m forever in love with this brand. I know it’s a luxury brand and most of you will probably judge me for this but my sin is that I’ve always liked to indulge in luxury skin care products rather than makeup.
Now @shoplaprairie.com, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue
La Prairie Cellular Luxe Lip Colour in Geranium ($55.00 for 3.5 g/ 0.12 oz) is a beautiful medium rosy pink with a satin finish. Everything about this lipstick is pure luxury starting with the elegant silver mirror-like tube which comes in a dark navy velvet cover to enhance its elegance and make this product not only a simple lipstick but an elegant beauty accessory.
