Maybelline Colorsensational 910 Shocking Coral

I know this is not a colour really for fall or winter
I love bright colours and I dont mind wearing them on my lips even in colder months

in fact I'm wearing this Shocking Coral by Maybelline


I love the pigmentation and the fact that even though it is very creamy has got a very high staying power
and really stays on your lips at the end of the day like a stain

I will certainly check out more shades from this line

I've seen so many beautiful colours

and you have you ever tried this line by Maybelline?

let me know

Balance Me Beauty - Weleda - Lookfantastic.com Haul

these are more in depth pictures of what I've bought on my last order from


I made this order mostly because I wanted to get the full size of the Radiance Oil by Balance Me,

because I fall in love with it once I've tried it in a sample size from one of my Glossybox. 

I also bought the anti ageing serum from Balance Me and a skin care product by Weleda...

but the most exacting part are the freebies, loads of stuff check it out..

hope you like it :)

Miss Sporty Pump Up Lash Mascara

Today I put on this mascara by Miss Sporty 
Pump Up Lash Mascara

in the colour Black

I'm happy with the effect of this mascara, makes my lashes black thick and defined

(but they feel light not overload with mascara)

pretty much what I usually want from a mascara

also it is on the budget

Have you ever tried this mascara? let me know

here some pictures with no mascara - one coat - two coats

No mascara

One coat of mascara

Two coats of mascara

take care

Bourjois Cream Blush in Rose Tender

For some weird reasons It seems I cannot find Bourjois Make up anymore here in Italy

It used to be very accessible, even in my local Sephora, but for the last few years It seems to be disappeared

Lucky I get the chance to go and visit my family in the UK every now and again

next time I go I need to get few more of these

Cream Blush 
Cream to Powder technology

This colour is called

Rose Tender

I really like it

as you can see it is a rosy pink with a little shine of small glitters

when you blend it on your skin completely disappear (in case you are worried to look like disco ball)

the shine help to give a healthy glow without any oil

in face it sets completely matte

it is a product to try it out

I heard that Illamasqua came out with something similar but I'm not too sure which other brands do it

I think looks lovely on the cheeks

give it a go

and let me know your thoughts

Lise Watier and Maybelline Haul from Canada

these are the goodies that my friend from Canada sent me

I love everything and I'm super exacted to start using this make up 

Most of the box was full of products by the band called


Personally this was the first time I heard of this brand, but by looking on line I figured that it is a pretty well established brand in Canada, and also not really cheap,

I was able to say that even by just looking at the packaging, pretty elegant and expensive 

also the products themselves are more to the high end side than the drugstore

I'm very happy to have the chance to try this brand (which weirdly is made in Italy)

thanks also for the 4 color tattoo by Maybelline

I own already 2 of these, but as I said on the video I will be more than happy to replaced mine with these new ones

thanks so much Shonagh

MAC Paint Pot in Let's Skate!

Another entry in my Paint Pot collection

Let's Shake!

this colour is very VERY hard to describe also because it is so hard to show in camera
or photos

It is hard to show how special this colour is, mostly looks boring pinky shade, but it is not

on the MAC website it is described like

Pale Pink with Pearl

and it is indeed like that

but only when you swatch it you can see how amazing this colour is...

I usually use it on his on when I want a natural lip (but with the twist of the pearl shimmer looks far more interesting than just skin colour)

If you like neutral shade and you dont like too much colour on your eyes, 
this can be a good alternative

MAC Paint Pot in Vintage Selection


Vintage Selection was for a long time in my wishlist
and finally I was able to get it

in the MAC website has been described as a

Frosted Dirty Peach

I can see why as you can see from the swatches (natural light and with flash)

I like this shadow far more than Bare Study which is for me too golder/yellow

Vintage Selection has been added on my favourite shadow for everyday look

so creamy that you can put it on your lids with your finger for a wash of colour and you are ready to go

I love the tiny reflection that the Frost/shimmer particles give to the eyes

very nice on his own or as a base for powder shodows

If you are like me, who like natural look, but dont dislike a bit of shimmer every now and again, you have to try this Paint Pot

One of my favourite Paint Pot

What is your favourite Paint Pot???

NOTD // S-he Stylezone Nail Polish in WOW!

It has been a while since my last NOTD post
the reason is easy to explain
I was away for 15 days and mostly I've been wearing nail polishes already reviewed 


that's the reason :)

this one I'm wearing today was part of my Austrian Haul I recently I uploaded on my Youtube Channel

and It is by a brand called S-he

(never heard that before, actually if you are familiar with this brand let me know your thoughts)

it costs me only 1,99 €
and to be honest I wasnt expecting any great result for that little money


I was wrong

the formula of this polish is so good and I really like the finish
the longevity of the polish is up to more expensive brands

so after all

a good buy

I also think this colour is so appropriate for Fall


what do you think?

Empties: Products I've Used Up! #9 | MichelaIsMyName ♥

My Empties


Mika xxx

Empties: Products I've Used Up! #9

here some of my empties

some make up items, and a lot of beauty items...

it is always so hard for me to finish up make up.. 

is that for you too???

Mascara are usually the faster thing to end (either cause I've used it all or if it dried out)

I think next empties I will have more make up items, surprisingly
