MAC Winter 2016-2017 Shadescents

Hello beauties!

MAC Cosmetics introduces Shadescents Collection for winter 2016, featuring six scents inspired by the personalities of six cult-favourite lispticks. I’ve always gone crazy over MAC Candy Yum-Yum lipstick (review, lip swatches) and I purchased it several times, even in a limited edition packaging part of MAC Osbourne Collection (photos) so this goes without saying that I’ll be getting Candy Yum-Yum fragrance. Which scent will you be?

MAC Preserving Passion Versicolour Lip Stain Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello cuties!

MAC Preserving Passion Versicolour Lip Stain was a new purchase of mine from the limited edition MAC Versicolour Stain 2016 Summer Collection (info, photos) which unfortunately hit counters in Romania so very late, in the middle of fall. I kinda new and documented myself upon every shade since this collection was released in time internationally and was on the counters in summer. I already told you this season is about trying on new lip colors, something different than my favorite pinks, purples and nudes so MAC Preserving Passion seemed challenging. I already gave you a sneak peek of my recent MAC haul but there’s a new one coming up, that I didn’t had time to photograph yet.

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).

I see it as a medium-dark, peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. The color was so rich and intense and it really showed a great color payoff. Continue Reading

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.

MAC Liptensity Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

You know how long I’ve been waiting for MAC Liptensity Collection (info, promo photos) to hit counters here in Romania and finally I can say these pretty shades are here! Since the moment I saw swatches of all the MAC Liptensity colors I knew I was going to pick up a few of them. I stopped by MAC counter earlier this week and I bet you’ve already seen on Instagram what I purchased but I also posted a quick video with swatches of my favorite MAC Liptensity colors. I’ll be showing you later on the colors I brought home with me but in the meantime I’ll let you check out so more photos.
