Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

This season everyone is crazy about matte lipsticks so I couldn’t miss the chance of blogging about the new Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks (14.20 Lei/ €2.25 for 3.8 g/ 0.13 oz). This is actually a new collection of lipsticks, featuring eight colors which just entered Essence Fall Winter 2016 permanent range of products. So take your time and enjoy all these new colors as they will  be available in store until spring 2017. I have for you today seven colors that I’ve been playing with, wearing and testing for the past week, so it’s time for an entire collection review. Essence matte lipsticks represent an affordable version, as they are drugstore products and the price is beyond cheap.

Urban Decay Crush Vice Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello sweeties!

Urban Decay Crush Vice Lipstick was love at first sight, first swatch and first touch for me. I met this intense fuchsia pink for the first time when I was invited for a pampering afternoon by Urban Decay. There were 100 lipstick shades there, beautifully arranged on the counter but my hand reached out directly for Urban Decay Crush…you know me for being addicted to pink so that probably won’t come as a surprise. From the first swatch I knew I had to have this color in my collection.

That day I not only received a makeover in style of Urban Decay but also a new hairstyle to go with it, so obviously that my lip color choice was Crush. I posted a quick video on Instagram that day and told you how excited I was about this color. Keep on reading to find out how this lipstick performs and check out lip swatches.

Make Up For Ever C207 Artist Rouge Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick collection for fall 2016 looked like a read deal to me. They come up with a variety of shades ranging from nudes to hot pinks, reds and edgy colors like green, blue and black, while they kept the finishes in just matte and cream. I had my eyes set on the pink tones but I wanted to check out a couple of nudes as well. Unfortunately at Sephora they don’t have more than just a couple of shades so at my first visit, after doing some swatches I leaned towards C206, a gorgeous bright, magenta pink. Later on when I stepped into a different Sephora store where there were more colors, I found MUFE C207 Artist Rouge lipstick absolutely irresistible so I picked it right up.

Lancome Impertinente L’Absolu Rouge Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I knew I’ll be hooked on Lancome L’Absolu Rouge Collection (info, photos) right when I heard the brand was renewing its entire lipstick collection, offering not only new shades but different finishes ranging from sheer to matte and cream. When the collection hit counters I immediately went to Sephora and showed you swatches of lipsticks that were on my wishlist. The packaging is absolutely amazing, just a fine click to open it and the variety of colors hardens your purchase decision. At the Lancome Trends Seminar which took place later that week I could took a much closer look at the new L’Absolu Rouge Lipsticks and play with the textures and colors so after that I knew the colors that would make my wishlist. Lancome No.325 Impertinente is one of my favorites and I was so happy to see it in the goodie bag after the event.

Lancome Impertinente lipstick is part of the sheer colors section as it doesn’t come totally opaque on the lips but I wouldn’t quite call it sheer after all.

Shopping for Urban Decay and Make Up For Ever at Sephora

Hello beauties!

I was telling you the other day about my current obsession with Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks and I promised a new post where I’ll show what else I purchased earlier this week from Sephora. I’ve been on a shopping spree for the past two weeks, getting a lot of makeup items…actually a lot of lip products and I’m almost finished with my wishlist but I still need something from Giorgio Armani (yeah those Lip Magnets). Stopping by Sephora I got three lipsticks, two of them in hot pink shades and one in a super cool metallic brown.

Shopping for Lancome L’Absolu Rouge at Douglas

Hello babes!

If you are following me on Instagram you’ve noticed for sure how often I find myself shopping at Douglas perfumeries. Earlier this week I bought a new shade of Lancome L’Absolu Rouge (swatches, photos), that I’m crazy about since I first hear the brand was renewing its entire line lipstick line. Coming up with four new finishes and a bunch of colors was definitely something that I needed to check out, but the new packaging was the cherry on the cake for me. The other day I posted a short video on Instagram where I showed you how the new Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick gets opened and it’s not only elegant but I would say chic with a twist.

Can You Tell I’m Addicted to Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks?

Hello cuties!

Really? Can you tell that I’m currently obsessed with Urban Decay Vice Lipsticks? How? 🙂 Well…I was warned that 100 lipstick shades in six different finishes are coming our way this season but I didn’t dare to believe they were all gonna be so irresistible. It all started with a tricky invitation by Urban Decay to spend an afternoon in the company of the new 100 shades, while I’d get a makeover and a new hairstyle. I got home that day baring my Urban Decay goodie bag and I didn’t even know the addiction was about to settle in soon.

Addicted to Urban Decay Vice

Hello pretties!

I can no longer deny it! I knew from the moment Urban Decay announced the launch of new Vice Lipsticks & Glide On Lip Pencils that they were going to be my downfall. I mean who can resist to 100 shades of Vice Lipstick?! It’s well known that I’m not a huge fan of lipsticks and lip glosses are usually my favorite lip products but let’s face it…I’m talking about six different finishes and colors that start from nudes and soft pinks, continuing with the classic shades of reds and burgundy, and finishing with edgy plum, violet, blue and even black. It’s really impossible to say you can’t find a favorite.
