I'm in love with Maybelline!!!





I'm telling you guys, I've got obsessed with Maybelline lately.....


Since I discovered that in some local grocery stores near me there are few of the Maybelline stands 
 I cannot stop myself from getting items any time I'm around there, and usually if I'm not around I try to put myself in the position to be.... I dont know if it makes sense ;) :P

anyway so far I managed to get only 3 items


2 of theirs Baby Lips (I LOVE THEM!!!)

and one of theirs Rewind Concealer (WOW!!! it is magical!)

anyway so far so good...

I'll see you next post with an update in my growing Maybelline collection

How I Cut My Fringe | MichelaIsMyName ♥


Finally I'm filming this video, which has been requested so many times from lots of you during my time on Youtube

Basically I'm a fringe addicted

and I'm wearing the fringe style from 2003

so more than 10 years with this look, but to be honest even if a couple of times I tried to change my style (without fringe) I couldnt resist, I think for my face shape a straight and heavy fringe suits a lot


what do you think???

I dont like to show my forehead or my brows... weird.. I know...


anyway in this video I show you How I cut my own Fringe

hope you like it

Cat Liner/Pop Of Colour Look | MichelaIsMyName ♥

 


these are the pictures of my last look
called 
Cat Liner/Pop Of Colour

if you haven't seen it I will leave you the LINK so you can have a look

the key for this look is a pop of colour (in the water line) and a very dramatic cat wing liner

I prefer match this look with a very nude lips

because I felt the eyes were a little bit over done

you can use any colour in the water line, I went for Purple today because I feel it helps make my green eyes pop

what do you think?

I hope you like this look

NOTD // Lady Lya Sugar Trend Nail Polish




here in Italy they call it SUGAR EFFECT
but everywhere else is called SAND EFFECT

same thing

this one is a beautiful colour which is kind of hard to describe with only one word

it is a shimmer mix of purple green gold and is it so beautiful!! I think :)

looks good on natural light as it does indoor with artificial 

what do you think?

Unfortunately I cannot tell you too much about this brand I think it is Italian, but it is the first time I've seen it....


anyway I hope you like it

Empties 12





here some close up pictures of my recent empties

I'm impressed that this time I managed to get rid off plenty of make up...


I found that Empties videos are more interesting when there are some make up items in it.....


mostly are mascara as you can see from the picture, but also a foundation (wow!!)

check out the video if you havent 

here is the LINK


Hope you like it

NODT // LAYLA Gel Effect Nail 02 Polish Pinky Doll




It is not (maybe) the classical colour for winter but how cares :)


This polish by Layla was once again (yeah because I was able to get all the 3 shades available)
the free gift along with TUSTYLE magazine over a couple of months ago

this is one of Layla Gel Effect nail polish
and I love it

you dont need a glossy top coat with these and they last quiet well without chipping

so I've very happy with it

Yankee Candle Macintosh Spice


I left 2013 with this scent and after couple a days
that the tart was burnt 
I can still smell the scent very strongly in my place

I'm so impressed with this Yankee Candles


I love the scents and the fact they last so long... even when they aren't on


anyway

Happy 2014 to everyone!!!

Essence Blush Stick







As you might already know I'm a cream blush lover
and, even though I own a bunch of those, I still can stop from buying more any time I find new ones.. especially if there so cheap like in this case with Essence Blush Stick

It retails under 3 euro and It comes in 3 different shades 
I only got 2 of these because the shade 020 Bronze Babe didn't really thrill me


so here I have 

030 Miss Peachy
and
010 Pretty in Pink


you'll find that these blushes are pretty shimmer so they act at the same time as blush also as highlighter which is great when you are in hurry and you can easily cut a step in your make up routine 

 like them both

they are long lasting and creamy easy to blend

for the price you pay for it.. it is a bargain
