Make-up Fest 2017 – highlights and impressions

Hello my lovely readers, today I’m back with my impressions and highlights from Make-up Fest 2017. I have participated in the previous editions and I knew I couldn’t miss it this year too. This year the event takes place at Crystal Palace Ballrooms Events in Bucharest between 09.30 – 18.00 on Sunday, ticket price 10 ron per day. There are many brands that have participated the previous years and some new ones too. During the event all the brands have special reductions and prices for all their products so go and shop all your make-up favorites and more.


My favourite brand of make-up brushes KIM was present at the event, you can play with the brushes and try the professional Numeric Proof brand at Adhara ( I am sure you will fall in love with the products as I did. You can read my impressions on the KIM brushes here and here.


Melkior was also present at the fair, with all its newest releases, the Matte Liquid Lipsticks, the Just Smoke It! palette, the 6 shadow eye palettes for specific eye shades, the gorgeous shimmery blushes and many, many more. You can try them, swatch them, play with them, I am sure you will find something suitable for you.


Cupio was also present with its beautiful fake lashes, and make-up products, what I was drawn to, were the newly released Mattix, matte liquid lipsticks (I have one at home and I wanted more). So I swatched them all so I can make up my mind and in the end I left with two shades, a hot red one Little Black Dress and a pink taupe one Bright Sand. I can’t wait to try them !

Goldenrose_beautyinfiveminutescomGolden Rose are also present at the event and have a special offer if you buy 150 ron of products you get 10% off your order. There are so many products to choose from, nail polishes for all tastes and occasions, make-up products and accessories and more.

Muah_lipsticks_beautyinfiveminutescomMuah were also present and have just brought to Romania their new range of Matte lipsticks, so I am happy to show you the swatches for all of them above. They are not released yet in stores but they will be soon. As a first impression they are very pigmented, hydrating and comfortable. I have brought home two of them the 332 Sonnetes pour Helene (the second from bottom third row from left to right), and 318 Dark Cherry (the top one third row from left to right). I have the impression you will see many more lipsticks from the range on the blog 🙂

P.S. they also had this palette:

W7 was also present with specially reduced prices and many, many products. They brought two new Eye Cushions palettes, yes you heard it correctly! They shadows are creamy and soft and feel bouncy as a cushion, then they set on the eyes, you can see the swatches below. I admit I am intrigued.

W7_eyecushions_beautyinfiveminutescomThey have also brought two highlighters, one creamy and another powdery – a strobing one Prism. They both are looking good. In conclusion go and check them out, I am sure you will something you like.


Beauty One was also present with its array of brands, starting with Paese. For me their Bamboo powder with Silk Proteins is still to this day the best mattifying powder I’ve ever tried!! If you are oily skinned as I am it’s a must!!


Paese_beautyone_beautyinfiveminutescom1A new and very pleasant surprise at Make-up Fest was Pupa Milano. I was very happy to see them there and they came with a bang, they brought for us a sneak peek at their to-be-released Light Up the Night Christmas collection, which is not yet present in stores. What can I say? From what I’ve seen I want it all! I’m sure it will sell out in a blink of an eye. There are gorgeous gold and dark burgundy shades and beautiful gift sets for all tastes and occasions.

Andra Cosmetics was also there with its professional make-up accessories and tools (Beautyblender, shadow shields, bridal primers and more), as well as Cinecitta the film make-up professionals.



As you can see, there are many products and brands to discover, for all tastes and price ranges. All the brands have special offers and prices for this event so go and check them out!
