NOTD // Essie Play Date




Hi everyone
today the nail polish I'm wearing is by Essie
and it is called

Play Date

I've bought this polish when I was in Canada
and It was love at first sight

This colour isn't what you would expect the perfect shade for winter
probably is more suitable for spring/summer
but I dodon'tare

I love this colour is unusual
It is not just a lilac colour

It is not flat as a shade
It looks like changing with the light

I feel sometimes looks more pinkish

It is very hard to explain but if you own it, you know what I'm talking about.

Play Date is a pretty special colour

check it out!


ps. by the way, with only 2 coats you are done, super glossy formula, and it lasts without chipping quiet long.

Real Techniques Silicone Liner Brush






I'm a huge fan of the wing liner
I wear it everyday

I normally use the gel liner, and in the market nowadays there are so many alternatives

but to achieve the perfect wing liner you dont just need the gel liner
a brush is a must have for this look


For years I have had the MAC 210 eyeliner brush
which I like

but since I've bought this brush by Real Tecniques

the Silicone Liner Brush

my MAC 210 went in retirement


I love this brush by Real Techniques

it is perfect if you use a creamy gel liner

I love it so much, to me it makes super easy applying the liner

I also love using it on my waterline

since it is just one piece of silicone without bristles, it does not hurt the eyeball in case you poke it with the brush :P

Another positive experience from Real Techniques


have you ever tried it?

Let me know

LACOSTE - Sensuelle



Last summer I was in a hunt for a new fragrance.
I'm alway like that, I've got my favourite perfume, but every now and again I feel the need
for a change, mostly because I get used to the scent and I no longer smell it..

I've never owned a fragrance by Lacoste
I usually find their scent too "fresh" or fruity

I personally Love a sweet scent, sweet like food not like flower
and not like fruity

I love vanilla, almond, and all the spices


this Sensuelle was a surprise


First of all I love the packaging

It is nothing too girly, actually maybe it looks like a man fragrance

but it is not!


the main accords are


Sweet
Nutty
Amber
White Floral
Soft Spicy


I think for me it was the perfect scent for the summer
but now I'm already back with my most loved fragrance of my life

Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior


If you get a chance to "smell" it give it ago, and let me know what you think



take care

How I do My Brows with Maybelline Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe



Last October favourites I mentioned about a product which took my heart
I'm talking about the Maybelline Color Tattoo
in Permanent Taupe

Permanent Taupe was my first Color Tattoo by Maybelline, I remember buying it along with Endless Purple back in April 2012 when the Color Tattoo became available here in Italy.


During these 2 years more and more color tattoo were added to my collection and unfortunately my
Permanent Taupe became DRY
so dry that I was not longer using it for eyeshadow because it was so hard to apply


One day back in October I decided to try it for my brows

and I was shocked

It worked amazingly

the fact that it is a wax consistency helps to hold the hair even the wilder ones,
also the staying power of the well known "24hr" color tattoo
makes your brows last for ages


here is a picture of my natural brows



and here is a picture after Permanent Taupe is applied



To me this is a huge difference

still very Natural looking brows
but I feel that Permanent Taupe helps making my brows looking more defined
and especially it helps to fill all the gaps I have got on my uneven brows


after all I totally recommend to all of you (if you already own Permanent Taupe) 
to try it for your brows..


if you do

please let me know how you like it 

:)


take care
