I really like the formulation of KIKO nail Lacquer

15 Colors Professional Cream Foundation by BornPrettyStore.com





Hi Everyone
today I'm sharing with you some pictures of this special palette
probably you have already seen the video but if you haven't, I will link it down the bottom

I picked this palette from BORNPRETTYSTORE.COM 

here the link of the palette 
they were so nice to send it to me

As you might know, I'm really into cream products
having a dry skin and also not more young or anyway as your skin can be when you are 20 or so
I feel that I need to add extra "oil" to my skin in order to look younger and healthier 
so that's why I prefer cream products 

that's why I love this palette

first it is so compact and easy to carry, I love the steady case
in this palette you get 15 different shades

and this can be use to achieve the perfect base

the first colour on the top from the left it is a shimmery highlighter
very similar to pearl by MAC

then you get 2 correctors (one light green one light pink/lilac)

the remaining 12 shades are the foundation colours, but because you get so many shades from the very light to the very dark
you can use them as concealers, contouring and bronzer

this palette is so versatile

if you love cream products this item is a must have





here you can see the effect can give to the skin
(never mind my looking crazy expression)
but I believe that in the picture LATER I look much healthier and sun kissed... 



don't forget to check out their website


and don't forget to use this site-wide 10% off coupon MKDW10

L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream/Concealer Review



Hi everyone, if you have seen my last video on youtube, well, you know already my opinions about these two items by L'Oreal

well I LOVE this combo for my base

it is nearly a month that I'm using this combo

I left behind all the fancy foundations, and concealers

these two guys make my skin looking so much natural
and without creases

I used to hate the creases under my eyes, after applying concealer (any concealer I have ever used, made my fine lines around my eyes looking 10 time worst)

since I start using the BB Concealer by L'Oreal Nude Magique

combined with the fantastic (feels like skin) BB cream in Medium

I really recommend you to try these two

I'm sure you will love them

have a look to the video if you haven't seen it

KRYOLAN for GLOSSYBOX Glossy Rosewood






This Blush was in one of my Glossybox
some months ago

I've been forgotten about this blush only recently during last week I've put it out and start using it

As you might know, I'm more for a cream blush instead of a powder

but, because summer came out so quickly
and heavy (today it was 36 C degrees)
I dont feel as comfortable anymore with cream blusher

so I start using this one

 I love it

It is a such a lovely shade

not too bright but still intense

It is sort of a rosy colour

the shade itself is called

Glossy Rosewood


a nice alternative to all my bright and pigmented blushes


what do you think?

let me know

NOTD // KIKO Nail Lacquer 343 Verde Primavera




My nail polish for today is by KIKO
a few weeks ago I was in town and I pass by KIKO shop, and I couldn't notice that there were having a promotional sale on some of their nail polish

only 2,50 euro

so I've bought some 

and this is one of them

called

Verde Primavera 

translated in English 

Spring Green

It is such a beautiful shade
it is much darker than in the picture, I wasnt able to show up the real colour

but you can still get an idea

this is the nail polish I'm wearing today

finger and toes

I really like it

what colour are you wearing today?

let me know

Soap & Glory Catch A Wrinkle In Time






When I'm over the UK I always try to buy many skin care products,
mostly because there is a huge variety of brands with very low price range and also because most of those brands are not sold over here in Italy

Like Soap & Glory

and time I'm over the UK I like to get few product from their range

I absolutely love the range the packaging and the concept 

this vintage looking packaging and all the pictures and old fashion fonts they use

I love it!

The skin product I want to show you today is called

CATCH A WRINKLE IN TIME

the name is so clever if you think about it

this is a daily moisturiser  (sometime I use it at night time too)
It is a quiet thick cream as you can see from the picture
that you really have to blend into the skin

It is not greasy at all it is actually a very nice base for your make up


I notice it help to camouflage a bit the lines and the pores of the skin

so pretty much it does what it claims 

REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF THE WRINKLES


give it a go

and let me know what you think

Even though this month we had to wait a bit longer in order to get our May Glossybox
(which really happens anyway every month)
this time the Glossybox Italian Team
sent to all of us a excuses email for the big delay 
(not really a big deal cause as I said, it happens every month)

anyway the 10th of June I was able to received the May Glossybox

and in fairness it wasnt bad at all

as you can see from the pictures

this month I got 2 make up Items.......... 

One the Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush
and second the eye-pencil by Dainty Doll (a brand of Nicola Roberts from the Girls Aloud)

I must say, I'm very happy just for these two things

NOTD // Nails Combo LAYLA






are you bored of your nail polish but you haven't got time for clean it and make a new application?

sometime I found myself in this position, and to get around the issue I normally use glitter top coats or, like in this case, another polish to make a French on my tips

Layla Mirror effect is a great way to turn your boring, chipped nails in something new and cool

I think this combo is pretty...

what do you think?

AVON Advance Techniques Moroccan Argan Oil







This Product was part of one of my past Avon haul 
that I made at the end of 2012.

I did want to give it a try before to make a review
so now that it is nearly finished I decided to talk to you about this product

which is from the Advance Techniques range

and it is the

Moroccan  Argan Oil



It can be used for hair types 
and it is a leave-in treatment 

I've personally used this on wet and dry hair

Wet after a shower I applied a couple of drops on the palm of my hands and then massage it on my hair (fully)

dry instead, I have applied few drops on my hands than massage it on the very ends of my hair, avoiding completely the roots 


I really like the effect, sometimes when it is needed I applied it once a day
and this left  my hair very silky and smooth


If you usually shop from AVON I recommend you to try this item

for me it's working very well


let me know what you think

Watch Me Simmer by MAC








This is not my first post about this lipstick, in fact last May when I first got it, I've written about it

this is Watch Me Simmer

and it came out in the Shop MAC Cook MAC collection

and it is an Amplified finish lipstick

This is such a beautiful shade, for spring and summer

One of my all time favourite

It has an hint of coral/peach but still a good amount of pink

I love  wearing it with a bit of tan

that's why it is one of my favourite for summer

I love the finish I love the colour and the scent, as usual vanilla scented


Check this out if you haven't yet
