Cosmetic craves

Hey my beauties,
just sitting in front of my PC having the worse mood ever and a small breakout which also drives me insane. It is quite pathetic but I need to share this superficial concern with someone...
Oh well, I have some really special beauty products I would like to share with you cause they are simply amazing!!!
From top left and clockwise: Dermalogica daily microfoliant, MAC mineralize blush in love thing, Alpha H Liquid Gold, Darphin age defying lip balm, Giorgio Armani Maestro foundation, Giorgio Armani eraser concealer and finally MAC's lipmix in orange and crimson.

Dermalogica daily microfoliant: 
This is a mild rice based exfoliating powder that activates as soon as it comes in contact with water. It makes the skin bright and smooth. The reviews on this thing are awesome.
MAC mineralize blush in love thing:
I definately dont need another blush but this color is awesome and it comes with a delicate sheen.
Alpha H Liquid Gold:
Overnight resurfacing and firming lotion, what more can one want?!
Darphin age defying lip balm
Seriously, probably the best lip balm out there. Soft, soothing and anti aging.
Giorgio Armani Maestro foundation
Probably the most innovative foundation currently in the market. Very light, applies like second skin yet it has the ability to offer coverage. Unfortunately it costs around 60 euros and I need two shades to achieve the perfect color: 4.5 and 6.5. Hmmmmmm
Giorgio Armani eraser concealer
Like the foundation, the concealer is amazing too. Not only does it cover dark circles but it promises to diminish them over time, plus it does not crease.
MAC lipmix
The Orange and the crimson lipmixes are perfect when you wish to create the perfect red lip. They can be worn alone or mixed with other lipsticks to produce the most amazing shades of red.
Conclusion: I need money!

NYX cosmetics is here...

NYX opened its first store in Thessaloniki just yesterday!
It is situated in 65 Ermou str, so all of you beauty and makeup lovers get ready and rush tomorrow. Since we dont know when it will open in Athens and the rest of Greece, the company has an e-shop nyx greece which will be up and running in a few days.
NYX is an American cosmetics brand created in 1999 by a young woman called Toni Ko. She always loved and experimented with makeup and being a consumer herself she realized that good cosmetics came at hefty prices. NYX was born based on the idea that good cosmetics can be affordable yet of great quality.
My recommendations:
I personally love the NYX lipliners because they have great color payoff and have great pink shades (which MAC doesnt) as well as the Jumbo pencils. For details and photos check out my nyx review! I also love the company's blushes and mega shine lipglosses!!!
