Nude Lip Glosses – Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

I love wearing nude lip colors as they make me look fresh and natural and I especially love wearing lip glosses for their beautiful shine effect they offer and how they make lips look fuller. I have for you today a couple of my favorite nude lip glosses and I’m sure you’ve probably tried some of these shades, but for me these are my favorite natural colors.

Unfortunately not all the products joining the permanent collection will be available internationally as well so please read carefully under the Availability title and at the description of each product. I personally I’m very excited about the new Essence Make-up Boxes but since they are exclusive to Muller this means they won’t be released internationally.

It’s true that some of these claimed to be spring products are already available but I personally don’t see the point to releasing spring items before Christmas especially since I’m living in a country where winter can end in late March. All that being said I invite you to take a look at the following calendar of upcoming spring 2014 beauty collections which I will update weekly if new collections or more info becomes available.

Take a look after the jump if you dare to see what’s waiting for you on the counters in the beginning of 2014. Continue Reading

Kinetics SS 2013 Crazy Daizy Collection – Round-Up Review & Swatches

Hello beauties!

Now that I’ve reviewed all the 12 new nail polishes from Kinetics Spring Summer 2013 Crazy Daizy Collection it’s time for a Round-Up Review post. This collection was released in early spring in some countries while in others it became available closer to summer time. The colors are suitable for spring and summer if you like sweet pastels or bright and pigmented colors on your nails but some of these shades which are darker, pigmented and fully opaque right from the first coat also contain fine shimmer which make them perfect fall or winter shades.

Without any false modesty I can tell you most of these nail lacquers have an incredible formula which makes them long lasting and chip resistant even without the help of a top coat. The colors are rich, pigmented and they don’t fade after a few days like other do, they will also keep its luscious finish and brilliant shimmer reflexes while they last beautifully on the nails up to 7 days.  I did encountered one or two polishes with a more difficult formula but none of them chipped, I just had to put in more time and effort to get the full opacity.
