Discovering Numeric Proof Makeup Products

Hello beauties!

I’m happy to finally introduce Numeric Proof as a new brand on Chicprofile! I’ve known about this brand for a couple of years now but it is only recently that I’ve began to use their products and get more familiarized with what they are offering and especially how to use them correctly. Thanks to my friend and makeup artist Marian Tanase I’ve entered the beautiful world of Numeric Proof products and find out not only that we are talking about a french makeup brand created after two years of rigorous research but also that is a brand which offers products for professional high definition makeup. After long hours of talking about Numeric Proof makeup I understood why they are considered one of the most professional makeup brands out there and why it’s so important to know how to use the products correctly.

Shu Uemura Grapefruit Pink CR330 Rouge Unlimited Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I know you may not believe me but this is my first Shu Uemura lipstick. I’ve been blogging about this brand for years but the products are not available in many countries and they don’t ship internationally so it took me a while to get my hands on them. Shu Uemura Grapefruit Pink CR 330 Lipstick comes in a gorgeous color and I thank my friend Gio from beautifulwithbrains.com for giving it to me. Everytime I traveled I managed to buy Shu Uemura skincare but I didn’t have any money left for the makeup as well.

Melkior After Dark Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

Last month at Cosmetic Beauty Hair 2016 Exhibition, Melkior exclusively launched their new, edgy shade of After Dark Lipstick. You’ve all seen that this season dark lips are a trend and it’s not unusual to paint your lips in black. I actually went shopping for several black shades myself, either lip glosses, liquid lipsticks or matte lipsticks and I’ve been trying them on for the last month or so. I know people kinda look strange at me when they see me wearing black lips so I tend to reserve this look for the second part of the day and especially during the evening when I go out.

MAC Doe Liptensity Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello babes!

With the promise in mind to keep away from buying new pink lip colors for the second half of Autumn, I went to MAC counter and picked two shades from the newly released MAC Liptensity Lipstick collection (swatches, photos). MAC Doe Liptensity Lipstick came as a natural choice of a nude color that I could wear on a casual day. Basically when I’m not wearing a pink lip, my next best choice is a nude color but I’m trying to change that and be more creative and that’s why I also bought this dark and edgy shade of MAC Burnt Violet Liptensity Lipstick (review, swatches).

MAC Burnt Violet Liptensity Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello lovelies!

Another week, a new stop by MAC Cosmetics counter and this time I was to check out in person the latest collections and to swatch MAC Liptensity Lipsticks so I can pick a favorite. You can take a look here for swatches of all 24 MAC Liptensity Lipstick colors but it’s so much better when you’ll see these in person. When I picked MAC Burnt Violet Liptensity Lipstick I have already promised to myself that the second half of fall will be dedicate to more darker and edgy colors and I’ll try to keep away from pink as much as possible. So far I was able to keep the promise to myself and most of my recent purchases included nude, plum or deep wine and burgundy colors. To tell you the truth I was excited about MAC Liptensity since I first received the info and somehow I kinda compared these with Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lipsticks (video, live swatches) only that they are so much more pigmented.

Even though it looks like an intense and truly pigmented shade in the tube it delivers a semi-opaque color coverage on the lips. Continue Reading

MAC Liptensity and Versicolour Shopping!

Hello pretties!

This season I’ve been hitting MAC counters pretty bad, leaving with a bunch of new products almost every week. Almost a month ago I showed you my newly purchased Vamplify colors and about 10 days ago I stopped to check out and swatch MAC Liptensity Collection (video on Instagram as well). I knew these were pretty intense colors so I didn’t resist the urge to get me some but I wanted something different than my regular pink shades. I also saw the newly released MAC Versicolour Stain (info, photos) shades so I picked a shade out of those ones as well.

Urban Decay Firebird Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

A new color addition to my lipstick collection is Urban Decay Firebird Vice Lipstick. It’s the kind of color that you know I like to wear, the more intense the better and if it’s pink then it’s perfect. It surely seems that my Urban Decay Vice Lipstick addiction continues so expect more reviews in the upcoming weeks as I have my eyes on some new natural shades.

Urban Decay Heroine Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

I told you earlier that the second half of the fall season will be dedicated to edgy, dark and mysterious lip colors. Urban Decay Heroine Vice Lipstick is a shade that I know it can be out of your comfort zone, and no one understands it better than me. I’m feeling comfortable wearing pink, purples and nudes but this season I just want to play with all the colors for lips and eyes and discover that is actually fun to refresh and revamp your makeup style. Halloween is close so Heroine could be a perfect choice for a dark and bold lip.
