Delirium Cream Pigment by Illamasqua

Another product by Illamasqua
I've bought this particular shades mostly because it was in sale, and was only less then 7 euro
half price than a normal Cream pigment, so I decided to buy it for give it a go

the colour is called


and as you can see from the swatch it is a mauve/taupe rose pink

perfect shade for being use as eyeshadow or blush and why not, also as a lip balm

it is pretty moisturising but still it has a very good staying power, on my eyes for example it lasts all day with a minimum creasing issue

it has a glossy finish which set more  like a satin

I really like this product

possibly I will get myself more shades in future

what do you think about Cream Pigment by Illamasqua?

Let me know your thoughts

Immodest Lipstick by Illamasqua

This is my first ever lipstick by Illamasqua
I waited until this particular one was coming back on stock to make my first order

What can I say about it, well I LOVE truly do the colour
it is a beautiful barbie pink
matte finish and with a lovely vanilla scent to it, (less strong than the MAC ones, but still noticeable)

Unfortunately I dont like this lipstick as much as I thought I was going to
the problem is the formulation, on me, particular y this lipstick is too drying

it is not easy to apply and it leaves patches on the lips, which aren't really nice

although I love the shade, which I think to be very similar to MAC Candy Yum Yum
but from the twos, I like Candy Yum Yum because the formulation is fantastic even though is matte as well
doesn't dry your lips and applies very easily and evenly

have you ever tried an Illamasqua lipstick?

tell me your experience

Illamasqua Cream Blush in Lies

Finally I own this amazing product
After has seen it in several videos on You Tube

by Pixiwoo 

I wanted it for such a long time, in fact the main reason for my Illamasqua order was this cream blush

I wouldnt really call BLUSH

to me it is more a cream highlighter than a blush

in fact as you can see from the blush it hasnt really got a very high pigmentation 
actually it is very sheer indeed

but I LOVE IT!!!

it is amazing cause it gives you a really plastic look on the cheek bones

like plastic ahahah or like if you have botox.. I mean your skin looks so smooth 

plastically smooth :D

if you like very dewy cheek bones (and hiding a bit of fine lines)

this is a product you must try

I love it

check it out

Illamasqua Cream Blush in Seduce

this is SEDUCE

and it is a cream blush

The reason why I picked this shade, was just because this only colour was in sale
but I must say it really meets my taste

as you can see from the swatch it is a very pigmented cream blush that you really need to blend into the skin to achieve the most natural effect

I love the dewy effect that leaves on the skin but without being to heavy or greasy

it is very comfortable to wear

and it last all day without smudging and fading away

I tried to apply this on my lips as well and I love the effect that comes out

like a coloured lip butter 

I'm very happy with this blush

check this out

leave yourself being seduced by SEDUCE

ahhah (I couldn't stop myself from making this sentence)

NOTD // NYC in a New York Minute quick dry 023 Belvedere Purple

What's in my nails today?

NYC New York Minute Quick Dry

023 Belvedere Purple

NYC was a nice discovery of 2012, here in Italy
it is even nicer to know that the products here in my country are way even cheaper than the UK

for example this nail polish was only 1,99€

and I know for a fact (because I checked when I was over the UK last June)
same polish over there is about 3,99£

for once we get a better deal here in Italy

this polish is a Minute dry polish

it has a pretty wide brush and the polish is very quick to dry indeed

it comes in several different shades, I only bought two, this one and Giallo, which I will show you in my next NOTD post

I think I'm going to buy more shades, very competitive price for a fast dry formula 

I really like it

have you ever tried this line?

let me know

Music Flower Color Mascara //

Hi everyone

today it was all about a POP of Colour
I think adding a pop of colour to our everyday make up sometimes can really 
turn the whole look into something more special and fun

I love the POP of lips I usually do that, I love bright lips so much

or I really enjoy making POP my eyeliner

but today I decided for the lashes

since I received this pretty mascara by

with this amazing turquoise colour

so I turned a boring natural look into something more fun without though turning into carnival look

in fact the beauty of this mascara is that you cant really see it for far away, only when you are really close it shows up as bright as it is

you can have a look to the video review with the full application I did

I leave it down below

hope you like it

let me know what you think

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew

if you have blonde hair
with some highlights or if your hair is bleached

you have to try this product

unfortunately not yet available here where I live, 
I've bought it last time in February when I wan in Northern Ireland
and it is the

John Frieda

Colour Renew Shampoo

from the Sheer Blonde line

I've tried so many items from this line and I must say I love them all

this is a little bit different it is something that can help to keep your highlight nice like just after the salon
helping neutralising brassiness (that very ugly yellow tone that bleached or highlighted hair can have sometimes after some washes)

I like it 

It seems to work

I like the scent

and the colour

as you can see it has a bright purple colour

let me know if you have ever tried a product like this
or just this one

NOTD // Nails inc London Brook Street

for my nail polish of today I have to thank Glossybox
in fact this mini size polish by Nails Inc London
was in my Last July Glossybox

I knew this brand from a long time and
I always love their polishes, I love the huge range of colour
and also the composition of the polish itself

this colour is so pretty
the name is

Brook Street

and it is a soft pink coral shade

perfect for summer

I'm also wearing it on my toes

pretty mini polish

pity their brushes haven't update at the more functional and easy applications wider one

pretty expensive they retail at 11 £ each

if you want to treat yourself it is a small pleasure

hear if you want to buy it
