Maybelline fans rejoice ! The Maybelline Boutique is here !

Me, as well as many of you, I'm in love with Maybelline. For its affordable products, for their great quality, for the cult mascaras, for the cult concealer The Eraser, for its great foundations, for its pigmented eye shadows, for the well known Baby Lips lip balms, for the lipsticks and the list goes on and on ...

And yes, I was quite frustrated at times, when I couldn't find all of their products in one place (some of them could not be found, others were out of stock, different stores, going from place to place, etc).

Focus on ... Revlon

A while ago we received very bad news that Revlon products would not be sold anymore in Romania. I was really sad to hear that as I had many favourites from Revlon old and new.  I love the Colorstay foundation, the Colorstay concealer and my very favourites the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms.

Well I am HAPPY to announce you that Revlon is officially back in Romania and you can find their wonderful products in all Kendra and Debenhams (with beauty section) shops. 

The newest Revlon campaign is #love is on - "the new mission of our brand is to inspire love."The misssion of Revlon is all about how a woman feels when she's putting on her makeup. And they want her to feel love. They want her to feel the feeling of falling in love.
  In the factory, we make cosmetics. In the drug store, we sell hope.”  
Charles Revson, Founder of Revlon

NIVEA Lip Care & Colour - the best way to start the cold season

With the beginning of the cold season close by, we should start to add more hydrating products into our face and body care routine. Still, for many of us, the lips are often neglected, either with no make-up or lip balms at all, or with lipsticks or glosses that simply cannot provide the right hydration and care in the winter time. What to do? A multifunctional product like a coloured lip balm is the solution. I present to you the new NIVEA Lip Care & Colour - intense and long-lasting hydration.

What I did these days - tidbits

If you read me daily I think you have noticed by now that I prefer to post in the first part of the day rather than in the last. This happens mainly when I have enough time or I don't have to be away from home for the most part of the day. When I am away for long, I post in the evening. And yes, I think you have noticed by now that for a few days I posted quite late in the evening. This is what I did these days :

Let's love life with Melkior

Nowadays we have many innovations in all domains especially in tehnology and science but they all come at a heavy price : the increasing pollution, the dissapearance of the ozone layer, the rise of the water level, the global warming effects and many more. We should love and protect our planet and cherish all the things that it has given us.

I am very glad to see more and more brands that work to spread awareness about the Earth's protection. If each and every one of us is more aware of these problems and try to solve them as best as we can, Earth will be a better place to live!
Melkior has just lanched a new collection entitled "Let's love life!" to remind everyone that our planet is very important and we should cherish and protect it!
