Somersault


EN:
Things turned out exactly as I feared and we jumped directly from boots to sandals...well, I am exaggerating a little, but still…it feels like we cannot fully enjoy spring any more, and it’s a pity, because it’s really my favorite season. It was incredibly hot this last week-end- way too hot for a blazer, but by the sea shore, where I took these pictures, it gets windy and chillier than elsewhere. I wore something casual and very comfortable. The “star” of this outfit is my new champagne necklace, which you can find here.

RO:
            Exact cum ma temeam, am trecut brusc de la cizme si botine la sandale…bine, exagerez putin, dar parca vara a venit prea brusc, dupa frigul de la inceputul lunii aprilie. Primavara e anotimpul meu preferat si regret ca nu ne mai putem bucura de ea ca odinioara. A fost extrem de cald week-end-ul trecut, mult prea cald pentru blazerul pe care il vedeti in imagini, insa in proximitatea marii, unde am facut fotografiile, adie briza si este mai racoare. Am purtat o tinuta casual, foarte confortabila. “Vedeta” este, de departe, noul meu colier champagne, pe care il gasiti aici.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Uncaged Tigress- Gleaming Temptations Lips Gloss& More...


I was recently the lucky winner of a Gleaming Temptations lip gloss in a Rouge Bunny Rouge Facebook contest. The product arrived surprisingly fast (within nine days), in a very cute and elegant packaging, with a bonus: a sample of the Bronzing Liquid As If It Were Summer Still…
Intricate and luxurious cosmetics brand, Rouge Bunny Rouge melds opulence and beauty with embellished detailing in a range of color make-up that embraces romance and whimsy alongside modern technologies and first-class ingredients. You can notice their great attention for details that in the floral elements and black touches, which are most common in their packages. 
GleamingTemptations Lip gloss: Uncaged Tigress 039 I instantly fell in love with this product the moment I first used it! It is by far the most moisturizing lip gloss I have in my collection. Its formula, meant as a moisturizing lip treatment, as opposed to a sticky gloss, is enriched with vitamin E, lotus flower extract, sesame, green tea, neem oil, boswellia, and gingko biloba. Therefore, it is not sticky and it leaves your lips feeling hydrated and comfortable. On my lips, it lasts up to four hours. It has a delicious, sweet scent.
Its color is described by Rouge Bunny Rouge as being a semi-sheer cardinal red, glistening with silver, violet and gold pearls. It is not the wild hue you would expect judging by its title, but rather a very subtle, wearable, raspberry red. You still have a chance to purchase it here, so hurry if you are interested.
Now about the second product: the bronzing glow liquid -As If It Were Summer Still...-has a pretty shimmery texture, but, when applied on the skin, it dries to a more matte finish, with a subtle glow. That makes it right even for someone with oily or combination skin. I used it to contour my cheeks and the bronze turned out to be very subtle, with a sheer, buildable effect, and a very natural, fresh-looking shade. You can use it on your face and body.

New in from Brigette’s Boutique



EN:
I was planning to invest in some high quality brushes for a while, so you can imagine my enthusiasm when Brigette’s Boutique offered to send me a couple for review. So here they are, with details and pictures:
BB20-Brigette's Boutique Long Angled Top Synthetic Long Handle Kabuki
The bristles are made from synthetic fiber, the top is angled, while the handle is long, providing an easy grip. It is a great brush for applying blush and bronzers with a natural, fresh glow. It picks up just the right amount of product, allowing you to build up to the desired effect. I have already washed it and did not experience any unpleasant fall out.
You can find it here for the price of 9,95$.
BB21-Brigette's Boutique Flat Top Synthetic Long Handle Kabuki
            It is very similar to BB20, except for the flat top. They both feel incredibly soft. It is perfect for blending foundation, applying powder or for buffing in mineral make-up, the result being a flawless, natural look. It is very dense, with bristles packed tightly together.
            Available here, for the price of 9,95$.
I find both brushes to be very qualitative and affordable, perfect for someone who intends to complete their brush collection with some really good pieces of just invest in the basic must-haves, make-up wise.
Along with these brushes, I also received samples of Brigette’s Boutique very own brand of mineral products, Annika Maya. The sample packaging is really cute and perfect for trips. They are very pigmented, based on few, harmless, ingredients, which constitutes a big plus, from my perspective. The Annika Maya Mineral Blush- Burnt Orange blush would look great on a tanned skin and I cannot wait to try it once the seaside season finally begins. It gives my cheeks a healthy, luminous glow.
I haven’t used the Black Glitter yet, but am planning to, soon, either part of a make-up or manicure. Let’s see what turns out!  
RO:
            Planuiam sa investesc in cateva pensule de buna calitate de ceva timp (de cand cu Black Friday, mai exact), asa ca va puteti imagina entuziasmul meu, atunci cand cei de la Brigette’s Boutique mi-au indeplinit aceasta dorinta. Iata, deci, ce am primit, in detalii si fotografii:
BB20-Brigette's Boutique Long Angled Top Synthetic Long Handle Kabuki
            Este o pensula cu par sintetic, varful in unghi si maner relativ lung, usor de manevrat. Este perfecta pentru aplicarea de blush si bronzer, pentru un finish natural si un efect de prospetime. Nu se incarca excesiv cu produs, astfel incat puteti construi aspectul dorit, prin aplicari succesive. Am spalat-o deja o data si m-a surprins placut, nepierzand fire.
             O gasiti aici, la pretul de 9,95$.
BB21-Brigette's Boutique Flat Top Synthetic Long Handle Kabuki
Foarte asemanatoare pensulei BB20, insa avand varful drept. Ambele au perii extrem de fini si matasosi. Este perfecta pentru aplicarea de fond de ten, pudra sau machiaj mineral, rezultatul fiind un aspect natural, fara cusur. Este foarte densa, cu perii strans grupati.
Disponibila aici, la pretul de 9,95$.
Ambele pensule sunt extrem de calitative si accesibile, perfecte pentru cele care intentioneaza sa-si completeze colectia de pensule sau, pur si simplu, sa investeasca in instrumente esentiale realizarii unui machiaj reusit.
Impreuna ca ele, am primit si doua mostre din gama de cosmetice minerale Brigette’s Boutique, Annika Maya. Ambalajele mostrelor sunt extrem de practice, perfecte pentru calatorii. Sunt foarte pigmentate, avand la baza ingrediente putine si inofensive, un mare plus, din punctul meu de vedere. Blush-ul  Annika Maya Mineral Blush- Burnt Orange confera obrajilor mei o stralucire proaspata si promite sa arate grozav pe pielea bronzata, asa ca abia astept sa-l incerc dupa cateva sesiuni de plaja.
               Nu am folosit sclipiciul negru inca, insa intentionez sa-l pun la treaba in curand, fie intr-un machiaj, fie intr-o manichiura. Sa vedem ce iese!

Suddenly Madame Glamour Perfume




EN:
            I had read about the Lidl dupe perfumes a while ago and was intrigued by the information that Suddenly Madame Glamour  had triumphed over the famous Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel in various comparative blind tests. Consequently, my next step was purchasing the miracle perfume, currently on sale, from a local Lidl store. The producer describes it as fresh citrus and floral notes merging to an alluring, exotic oriental accord, incorporating Bergamot and Jasmine.
             It is a good, lasting perfume (I only spray it once in the morning and in the evening, the scent is still there), a little “heavy”, which is why I would not recommend it during the summer. Compared to the original Coco Mademoiselle is yet more subtle- all Chanel perfumes are known to be very strong, the type of winter perfumes. I find it to be a little bargain, considering the affordable price, its persistence and practical, purse-friendly, format.
            Have you ever tried any Lidl dupe perfumes?
RO:
Citisem despre parfumurile- replica ale unor marci celebre, comercializate in Lidl acum ceva timp, iar informatia potrivit careia, in urma mai multor blind teste comparative, majoritatea covarsitoare a participantilor a preferat parfumul Lidl- Suddenly Madame Glamour  celebrului Coco Mademoiselle, de la Chanel, mi-a atras atentia. Asa ca urmatorul meu pas a fost achizitionarea parfumului Suddenly, momentan la oferta, la pretul de doar 15 RON. Cei de la Lidl il descriu pe scurt ca fiind un amestec proaspat, cu iz oriental, de note citrice si florale, cu adaos de bergamota si iasomie.
Este un parfum bun, foarte persistent (e suficient sa pulverizez o data, dimineata, iar seara, aroma este inca acolo), putin “greu”, de aceea nu l-as recomanda vara. In comparatie cu originalul- Coco Mademoiselle, este, insa, mai subtil- se stie ca parfumurile Chanel sunt foarte puternice, genul de parfumuri “de iarna”. Mi se pare o mica afacere, avand in vedere pretul mai mult decat accesibil, rezistenta si formatul practic, usor de purtat in geanta, pentru un eventual retus pe parcursul zilei.
Voi ati incercat vreunul dintre parfumurile replica, marca Lidl?
