Magic Moments with Nivea Tales

Hello friends,

today's post is not a review, because the universal Nivea cream is a product that we all know and we  certainly have at least one at home.
I decided to write a few words about the cream on the occasion of the wonderful new limited edition boxes that are available in stores.

The creas come with small brochures, each with a story and a character, but are also online for your kids.

A very good idea and nice way to remind us we all need fabulous stories in our lives, and our children still need stories to be told at night.

The characters are :

Mia - caring and creative
Harry - The curious discoverer
Little Fairy - dreamy and always up for fun
Rabbit - through thick and thin

Find the stories in English here
In Romanian here.

Have you tried them?

Video How to wash your hair extensions EASY

Hey babes,

today I have an English video for you, on how I wash my beloved hair extension.
This is my easiest method I have ever tried, it protects the hair and also the clips.
It is very fast and simple, so I hope you enjoy the video!

For this I used my lovely Irresistible Me hair extensions and their hair products, they launched this summer - Liquid Gold Shampoo and Conditioner.
You can get Irresistible Me products here and use my code for 10% OFF - IrresistibleLorena

Tips for an easy hair wash for your hair extensions and to protect them :
* tie them in a pony tail
* comb them with a large tooth comb
* do not wet the metal clips
* wash them with shampoo
* use conditiner/mask
* optional * use hair oil
* do not wash them often! If you use  hair styling products in them wash them every 1-2 months, If you don't than not so often
* love them , and treat them like your own hair

Video - How to curl your hair using Babyliss Curl Secret Ionic

Hello gorgeous!

Today I am sharing with you my newest hair tool / toy - the famous Curl secret, automatic curler from Babyliss.

I must admit I was a bit afraid of it, but got over it very fast since it's very easy to use, does not pull my hair - if you place too much hair, the curler stops and warns you to place it again!

It is not heavy at all, you hand won't hurt, and in less that 15 minutes you have nice, long resistent curls!

In Romania the official Facebook page is here.


There are two heat settings on the Babyliss Curl Secret, with a maximum temperature of 230°C and minimum of 210°C . The high and low temperatures are designed for fine and thick hair so you can use the device for your own type of hair


There are 3 timer settings with audio beep indicator. These different settings will give different curl effects. The longer the time the hair is held inside the curl chamber, the more defined the curl will be.

 But results will also depend to your hair type. 

8 seconds = 3 beeps – for loose waves
10 seconds = 4 beeps – for soft curls
12 seconds = 5 beeps – for more defined curls

Hair is automatically drawn in to the ceramic curl chamber where it is softly held and gently heated from all directions to form a curl.

The ionic conditioning system also ensures your hair is left sleek and shiny, as the ions work to fight frizz.

According to their website:

Auto Curl Technology™.
Brushless motor.
Ceramic coating.
Cleansing tool included.
2 temperatures (210°C & 230°C).
3 time settings (8, 10 or 12 seconds).
Sound indicator (4-5-6 peep).
Cord: 2,5 m
On/Off switch (LED).
230 V (50-60 Hz).
3 year guarantee.

Lipstick of the Moment - Charlotte Tilbury Lost Cherry


Lipsticks create addiction! So beware of this post! You might want to buy at least one!

 Todays post is about Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Lost Cherry - a vibrant coloured matt lipstick, perfect for any season , in my opinion.

I enjoy paring a fun , summery lipstick with a cat eye for fall, to brighten up my day. I know it is not everyone's cup of tea but it's fun and it makes me happy.

The packaging is super elegant, the box is a matt burgundy colour with gold accents, just like every CT packaging.

The lipstick tube comes in a rose-gold metallic packaging, super sleek and elegant. You can really see what you're paying for. Nothing is cheap in this lipstick, it will make you feel like Breakfast at Tiffany!

The lipstick bullet has a square, angled tip as it's stated on the official website, which makes it easier to apply. I have to agree, I really enjoy the shape, it makes it easy to apply. 

The quantity is 3.5 grammes, long lasting , because it is very pigmented and it lasts a long time. 
I can trully say this is much better than the Nars Audacious lipstick, which does not last this long, it stains the lips and has the same price - 32$ 

It is infused with orchid extract to hydrate and protect the lips , Triglycerides mixed with oils and waxes to make it long lasting .

The texture is smooth, but is not as Matt as MAC's matt lippies. 

It has an amazing smell of Milka with Oreos....

Perfect details!

Have you tried Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks ?

Review - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette Holiday 2015

Holiday palette alert!

Hey babes,

Today I'll show you my newest palette that I purchased - the limited edition Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette for Holiday 2015. 

I must admit, as everyone else, this is much smaller than the previous palette and the blushes. The blushes from the start are smaller than the powders so...imagine this. BUT , the quality is there, and if you don't want to buy the 6 in full-size, than this is for you!

You must see the bright side in anything!

If you're not a make-up artist and you want this just for yourself and for daily use, I mean everyday you wear make-up, than this is perfect for you!

If you want to use it just once a week, buy the products you like in one size and use it . But hey, who am I to tell you what to buy, you're a make-up collector and want to have it, go for it!

As other bloggers/vloggers stated, you get less products for the money - 80$ , but you have 6 small Hourglass products which have different uses. 

It is stated on their website to be " everything you need to brighten , finish, highlight and contour "  in one small , clutch sized palette. Yet, I must dissagree in some point. 
Dim light and Diffused light are not matt, and neither Luminous bronze light...just these are not good for super oily skin types.

You can bronze up your face a bit with Liminous bronze light but you can't contour your nose with it...please, do not!

The packaging is very pretty , the same material as the previous palette and the full size products.

Palette includes 6 shades:

• IRIDESCENT STROBE LIGHT (NEW): A rose pearl powder that gives a refined glow to the complexion.
• LUMINOUS FLUSH: A champagne rose blush fused with Luminous Light to evoke a candlelit glimmer.
• MOOD EXPOSURE: A soft plum blush fused with Mood Light to brighten the complexion.
• LUMINOUS BRONZE LIGHT - a medium tan shade fused with Luminous Light for a softer, candlelit warmth.
• DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights the complexion.
• DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity

Swatches in order


Gorgeous shades which can be use carefully on almost every skin type/tone

Versatile - you can use the new highlighter on the eyes, it looks stunning!!

Very smooth texture and doesn't look cacky no matter how much you apply! Good for begginers as well.

Very pigmented! Be carefull on the blushes, you only need a tiny bit!!

Large mirror

Looks pretty in pictures


The powders does not set the concealer well. My under eye area is dry , so I apply a creamy liquid concealer to highlight. When I fixed it with Diffused light it creased....
What I do is fix my concealer with a little bit of translucent powder - Mufe HD, and after I apply a small amount of this. Than it is secured.

Small amount of product for the price

What do you think? Buy or Pass??!?!

I don't regret getting it, and I will use it to the max!!

Beauty News by The Body Shop

In October 2015, The Body Shop is launching its new fragrance Black Musk, following the traditional White Musk from 1981 and Red Musk from 2014.

      Black Musk is announced as the darkest and the most sensual of all the scents.
It represents a contrast between light, sweet flavors and dark musk with oriental woods.
                         The creation is signed by Cecile Matton and Ralf Schwieger.

Black Musk is available as 60 ml Eau de Toilette, 50 ml Eau de Parfum and 20 ml Perfume Oil.

The Body Shop - " Musk - It is one of the most potent pheromones by nature, so we created the darkest Cruelty-free musk and we wrapped it in the sweetest natural ingredients to get the sensual, most powerful musk scent "

Its notes - pear bambinella, spiced with pink pepper and Bergamot ; heliotrope , black vanilla notes,
black musk, patchouli and vetiver.

Can't wait to smell it!

Shade adjusting drops

How cool is this?
This is something every MUA should have!
I was just searching on YouTube how to change the shade of your foundation...the only thing I could find and use was to use food coloring pigments...well, wasn't going to try that!

These are just genius! 

           How do they work?

1. Apply your foundation that you want to modify on the back of your hand , so that the product warms up and you can work easier with it.
2. Apply the shade adjusting drops you want to use - light or dark .
3. Voila. You have a mathcing foundation now!

Its formula is light and let's the skin breath.  Is infused with English rose water and aloe vera, both 100% from organic sources. It claimes not to log the pores.

The finish it is said to be semi-mat with a hind of glow. Hmmm 

The Lightening shade has a concentration of white and pink pigments which help lightening the shade of your darker foundation , while neutralizing the yellow in the olive toned foundations.

1 Drop = 1/2 shade lighter

The Darkening shade has a concentration of black and red undertones , keeping this way the deep tones of the dark  foundations.

1 Drop = 1/2 shade darker

What do you think??

Review Glazel Visage Eyeshadows & Pigments

Hey dolls!

Here is the review for the lovely pro make-up brand - Glazel Visage  - That you can find here.

The brand is Polish and is around for a while but only this year they arrived in Romania, but you can find them in other countried in Europe as well. Not sure about US though..

The brand has a variaty of products perfect for everyone. I recommend you get the personalized pallete and fill it and with colours you desire . More economic and fun!

Magnetic personalized shadow.

I wanted some pastel shades, dark shades a have way too many. 
The S47 , S51 S40 are cool toned shades while the other are more on the warm side. 

Now, the pigmentation is there, on the application you have to work a bit. I recomand dabbing the product not swipe it. You can always built it up anyway. 

Not all the shades have the same fall out . The S47 is much more dustier than the others. 
They creamy but you still have some fall out. No problem!

I like to apply also the satin shades  - 2 and 130 - on a cream base , to that the colour pops. 

My fave is S40 

Now these are some gorgeous pigments 
I love the quality and formula, the colour payoff is amazing!

The white A7 is a gorgeous pearly shade with golden undertones. You can use it as a semi glitter on top of eyeshadows using your finger or worn as an only shade. 

Cameleon C2 is stunning! I used it on clients also and they loved it! It is a warm teal with reddish undertones to it . 

Pigments can be used in multiple ways. You can apply them with a wet brush, but then grab a tiny bit, otherwise you will have a patchy application and fallout. 
I like to apply them on a creamy sticky base dry. That way I can control more the product .

If the colours are not good enough for you you always have the posibility to mix them for a unique signiture shade!

Glazel Visage Lipgloss nr 8 - light weight and easy to wear during the day. 
Not so sticky and it is what it's said, a lipgloss. The color pay off is not as opaque as liquid lipsticks but you will still have some colour on your lips.

The camouflage cream comes in a small package but it is very consistent. 
You only need a tiny bit to cover and I recommend using your finger for applying it! The product will warm up and the application will be much more easier with less product!

The colour I have is 2 and it is a cool toned beige.

What do you think?

Have you tried them?
