Crayon by TOP SHOP

Once again today I'm sharing with you a short review of a product
I have received from my last make up swap with Beatrice 

this is the Crayon by TOPSHOP
the shade is Rock Chick
it is this kind of Purple/plummy colour

This thing I noticed was that this item was made in Italy

As you can see from the swatch, it is a beautiful creamy colour
you can use it on its own or as eyeshadow base
I love the fact it has a gold shine to it
It is really good also for the waterline
It last a long time
and on me doenst seem to crease
(which is pretty good)

I believe there are other numeral different shades
so please check them out on Topshop

Hope you like it

Covergirl Lipstick Review


Today I'm reviewing a lipstick by Covergirl

Once again this lipstick was in my make up swap I did a couple of months ago 
with my American friend DorthyMarie

The shade she gave me is number 395 Darling Cherie

It is this lovely frosty pick
I dont know how to explain but sometime this lipstick seems on the cool side of pink or frosty pink and some other times, depends with the lighting, it looks much more near a warm pink colour

I really like the packaging 
I find this packaging very elegant and sleek
very clever the bottom part where you can see the shade of your lipstick 

This is the swatch on my hand
here you can see the frosty cool pink

and for example the swatch on my lips instead
shows the lipstick much warmer tone 


In the end I really like this product
the scent is so tasty is like toffee
and it is so smooth and moisturising on the lip

It comes in different shades as you can see on Covergirl Website  

Hope you like it

Collective Haul // Pictures - Swatches

Hi everyone following my last video today I'm going to show you pictures/swatches of the products I have lately bought

Christian Dior Rouge Dior number 862
Hypnotic Red

It was a pretty expensive lipstick about 27 euro
But because I had the 20% off by Sephora I managed to pay a bit less for it
I really like this shade is so sophisticated not for everyday look but I'm sure I will find the time for wearing it


a lipstick by MAC
actually my first MAC lipstick ever
Craving is the shade
I love the sent of this lipstick is very yummy and also very moisturising
and this one was about 18 euro (way too pricier compared to Mac in the UK or Ireland)

Then I also got this pretty useful palette Pro x 4
by MAC
I don't own a big collection of MAC eye-shadows this nice practicable one will be handy for holidays or weekends trip when i don't want to carry too much stuff (make up wise)
and this one was about 6 euro

next my favourite mascara
I love the way it leaves my lashes 
(this is my second one)
I must really like it then if I bought myself another one

this amazing Mascara by AVON
which was a gift from my friend Judy
(which also gave me an amazing drawing of myself, she is so talented)
I will make a review video about this one pretty soon

then some items by KIKO

This beautiful lip pencil in this intense red 

a pretty winter (in my view)  nail polish with this creamy Pistachio colour

and then these two Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow
in shade 19 and 20
one a mat black and the other one is a shimmery silver black

This expensive product by Lancome

and a few free simple

below you can see the swatches of all the products

If you have any question about these product feel free to contact me or leave a comment and I will get back to you

Smokey Eye Palette by Top Shop

Another item that I have received from my last make up swap with Beatrice
is this pretty palette by Top Shop

It is called Smokey Eye Palette 
and the shade I have got is 

Package  wise is so cool
black with white dots 
the feeling of the palette is kind of a rubber feeling material
the palette feels so smooth and look so sleek and easy to carry where you want for touch up your make up

It comes with  4 interesting shades
(all of the 4 are shimmer shadows)
also the palette comes with a pretty good size mirror and a nice applicator brush

You can easily create smoky looks with those 4 colours
the black can be used as eye liner the white as a highlighter 
and the other 2 shades to create the smoky look 

This is the swatches

I really love this palette
I have already made few looks and I'm really enjoying using it

If you have it.. please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts

Sleek Blush Flamingo - Review

Finally I have got my chance to try this famous blush.
It was lucky to receive this from Beatrice on our make up swap.
I always wanted to get myself some Sleek products but for I don't know what reasons I have never got the chance to get it.

This is a Blush by Sleek in the shade Flamingo
(which is always been the shade i always wanted to get for myself)

It is this bright hot pink

I love how it blends
I love the fact that is a powder mat finish

Sleek makes some many different blush shades

Maybe in future I will get some more

I really like this blush
if you have it

please share with me your thoughts
