Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection

It is only recently that I've bought this Limited Edition Real Techniques set


but since I've got it I played around with it and I have a first impression idea of them

lets focus all the aspects


a bit disappointed, after have been used to the nice bag/stand this new packaging seems missing something

The Brush

the handle is nice and sleek, the body is in plastic instead the metallic finish of the regular lines
no more self standing (which is fine to me, I never really use that function)

I like the Face Brush and the Contour Brush

I don't enjoy using the Eye Brush because it hurts my lips the bristles are so fine and at the same time pointy
they really poke the skin hurting it.. no joking, NOW I'm not sure if it is just an issue with this particulate brush in this set or if this Eye Brush has this downside

actually please let me know if you have got this set, if this brush is as I explained

after all I like this limited edition collection

but in my view it is slightly lower in quality with the regular line

let me know your thoughts

Essence All About Matt - Fixing Loose Powder

This is not a joke

I love this powder

Normally I'm not a powder person, but during the summer powder for me is A MUST 

when it is too hot having a shiny (not a nicely shine, greasy) nose ore chin

it is not really flattering

so I have used a few number of powder during the lest time, but none of them really was giving me the long lasting effect of matte

this Essence All About Matt Fixing Loose Powder


leave my skin like silk

seriously get this one if you can, it is only under 5 euro

and as I said it works

let me know

Revlon Baby Stick in Pink Passion

This little one is surprising much better than what I thought when I purchased

I thought this was more less a cream blush in a stick format

which it is 

but, as I found out by wearing it

it has a huge staying power

well it is creamy stain I would call it!

at the end of a day it stays on in the same place you applied back in the morning 
so it doesn't move or smudge

but even if it stay like a stain

I love the fact that still look dewy without looking too greasy, I don't know if it makes any sense
but yeah it is a dewy stain stick blush

and I love it :)

I wish I have bought the other 2 shades 

Sunset and Tahiti maybe next time I will get them too

I really recommend it

If you have tried it let me know your thoughts

NOTD // Layla Gel Effect Nail Polish

hey guys

today that's what I'm wearing on my nails
as I was in Coin the other week, I knew about this new line from Layla

and I wanted to try at least one colour

they retail around 11 euro so it wasn't the case to pick  a few colours

even though they have got a good selections of shades

few pastels and some nudes which can be handy for the coming fall

anyway I went for this hot pink

number 03

I really like the finish 
very glossy and gelly (hence gel effect)

but still too pricey for me

I will wait to see if other brand come up with their gel or gelly effect line

Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder

Hey guys, just lately I wanted to try a new bronzer
and apart from the POP and the Bourjois and some other cream alternative (which in this torrid summer I rather skip) I didnt have much to play around with so last time I was in COIN I've seen this powder Bronzer by Catrice
which was very cheap (less than 4 euro for such a big size 9,5 g.)

I've got the shade 020
Deep Bronze

this formulation feels like silk on the skin
It goes on like butter melting down... 

It does feel far more expensive than just 4 €

what is your favourite bronzer??

let me know

Avon Haul :)

here some products that I recently bought for this summer season

I still didnt expose myself too much at the sun rays but I felt I need to stoke some protections

I've bought a body cream spf 30 and a face cream spf 50

also a fake tan body lotion

no much make up items only the A new BB cream
which I'm testing, I like it so far

I will post a review as soon as I will be able to have a clearer and deeper idea about this product

what brand do you use for summer with SPF?

London Stansted Airport Haul!!

here some pictures of my 
London Stansted Airport HAUL
sometimes I find it is good travelling by place only because you get to wait a bit at the Duty Free area

and if you are lucky enough to be in a pretty big airport (with a good selection of shops) you can really make a good use of the time in there :)

this is what I got while I was waiting for my flight

if you haven't see the video I leave the link 

Hope you like it
