Christmas is over..... 2014 and...... I discovered Pony Tail!



The Holidays are already over this year went so fast....
and as I heard around everyone else feel the same... time seems to have gotten faster over the last years....

well

I hope you had a beautiful time tomorrow is the last year of 2013
and I really look forward 2014... I feels it will be a very special year for me :D

anyway this Christmas I discovered pony tail

and I think I like it what do you think?

what I love about it is the lifting effect (face) 
it gives me the illusion to have a lifted face and eyes

so really it does make me feel younger :D

so

Probably you will seem me wearing it more often ;)


anyway

thanks for the support over 2013... and keep in touch for the next year

take care

NOTD // Layla Gel Effect Nail Polish in Smooth Purple




My Nail Polish for today

is Layla Gel Effect nail polish in 

Smooth Purple

and as you can see from the pictures is this very dark plummy / purple colour

I love the finish really gelly and glossy

I really love these nail polish by Layla especially their Gel Effect ones

I also think this shade is perfect for the season

very sophisticated alternative to black

elegant but edgy at the same time

what do you think??

Yankee Candles



Christmas 2013 is already over

but one thing I want to share it with you

this beautiful box (hand made by my auntie)
full of tarts
with different scent very appropriate for winter


I love it!!!

the scent is so strong and long lasting....

Christmas Look | MichelaIsMyName ♥




here some close up pictures of my last video Christmas Look

as you can see I went for the bright lips

I think bright lips are a must have for the holiday

to me make the look more festive

of course you can just leave the lips nude or using a bit of gloss, but I'm loving the MAC Retro MAC lipstick in 
Relentlessly Red

what do you think??

what is your make up look for Christmas?

let me know

ciao

and happy holiday

Model co Cheek Lip tint Rosy Red








A lovely lips/cheeks stain is always handy to have
I'm not a huge consumer of it, but every now and again I like to wear a stain on my lips and cheeks
I think the staying power of it is unique

This one in particular is by a brand called
MODEL co

an Australian make up brand based in Sidney

which I discovered for the fist time from Glossybox

I received in the past other items from this brand but this one in particular really appealed to me

It retails for 18,00 € on Model co webstite

to be honest I dont know where else you can get it

I really like it
the only issue with this (and with all tint products)
make sure not to use any of your fingers to apply it

BECAUSE IT STAIN all day on it
and it is not nice going around with a bloody red finger tip.........



use a brush ;)

NOTD // LAYLA Gel Effect Nail Polish 07 - RED & RICH


Today this is what I'm wearing on my Nails...

and it is one of the 3 nail polish by Layla I was able to get for basically free (only 1 euro each) a couple of weeks ago with TuStyle magazine

this is the shade I like the most

this true red

called 

07 Red & Rich

perfect name to describe this shade

I love the Gel Effect polish by Layla 
they are glossy as you can see from the pictures


the regular two coats without a top coat

also this is the perfect shade for Christmas I think


what are you going to wear for Christmas??
(nailswise)

Let me know

Lise Watier Purple Eyes [Pictures]



here some close up pictures of my last make up look

as you have seen on the video

I've used a couple of eyeshadows from the Summer Sunset Paradise 

especially the very vibrant purple shade

I love the final look

not too over the top (also cause I wear my fringe down all the time, so then the Purple shadow doesn't come up so strong)

I think a natural lips is the best match for this eyes

what do you think??


let me know

NOTD // Bella Oggi Gel Effect Nail Polish



My nail polish today!!

Today I'm wearing this polish by an Italian brand called Bella Oggi
I've never bought anything from this brand before and to be honest I was a bit sceptical at first because it is not a very well known band

anyway I decided to pick it up because lately I'm into gel effect nail polish
and also I liked the shade

a true cool tone Purple

I think I don't own anything similar

as you can see from the pictures the finish is glossy indeed
two coats and you are ready to go

also it has got a pretty good staying power

I might have to go back to the store and pick up few more shades...

nice discovery

NOTD // Astra Laquer Effetto GEL 806 Sensuelle



This nail polish is by an Italian brand called ASTRA 
and more than Italian this brand is UMBRIAN meaning they made it in my Region

so I'm very proud of it

in the past I have used and showed here several different shade of nail polish by ASTRA 
but I must say

the effetto GEL or in English GEL EFFECT (of course) is the best

as you can see from the pictures above, I have only applied 2 coats and no top glossy coat

it is super glossy and shiny

I love it

also I love the prise 

3 euro

super cheap for such a great quality

I will certainly get more colours in future

see you next time

ciao

November Glossybox





this is my November Glossybox

as I mentioned on my video
unfortunately 2 of the 5 items inside this box were already been sent in the past
the blush and the hand cream

so.....


for that reason you all can understand this box was a little let down for me

the other 3 items were ok
an eyeshadow
a lip gloss

and another hand cream


well... I only hope next month will be better

see you next time

ciao

MAC Pink Nouveau







Pink Nouveau 

by MAC is one of my new lipstick joining my collection

this is as described on MAC website

a BRIGHT PINK

it has got a SATIN finish

but I found this one slightly more moisturising than other SATIN finish by MAC I own
(viva glam nicki) 


this is a pretty pink lipstick

for an every day bight pink lipstick without being over the top, in fact it is in my opinion very wearable

I like it :)

what do you think???

TuStyle and LAYLA collaboration




Another collaboration with Layla Make up and an Italian Magazine

this time was TUSTYLE

I couldn't miss this 3 nail polish by Layla
especially cause they were colours from the GEL EFFECT line
which in the past I bought one shade paying over 11 euro...

these three were only 3 euro!!!!

and look at the colour

1) is a baby pink
2) a intense red
2) a dark plummy colour

I love them 

pretty soon I will post pictures of the singular colour on my nails


stay tuned for it


ciao
