and if you havent seen the video 
check it out 


April MikaBeautyBox | MichelaIsMyName ♥




This are the 5 items I've bough for my April self made beauty box

I went over my budget though, I spent 20 euro instead 15 euro

But for ONE brand box I think is worth

Also I really couldn't say NO to one particular item (which in the end was the most expensive)

the Matte Lipstick from the spring collection ROCK IDOL which was 6.99 euro

anyway I hope you like what I picked and if you haven't seen the video check it out!

take care

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Look #1 Milk Chocolate




Hello everyone, today I want to show you the pictures of my last tutorial using my beloved 
Chocolate Bar Palette by Too Faced.

As mentioned in my review video I wanted to create all the 3 looks suggested by Too Faced for this palette and today I start with the first one called

Milk Chocolate

This particular one I think is more suggested for Blue eyes 
but still I think can look good with any kind of eye colour.

For this look you only need to use 4 shadows 
all in the first row of the palette


you need White Chocolate (the second from the left) then Milk Chocolate (the third from the left) 
then you need Gilded Ganache (the first from the left) and finally Triple Fudge (the fifth from the left the last one basically)

I hope you like the final look
let me know what you think


ciao

NOTD // ASTRA My Laque in 24 Nero



Hi everyone 
today I LOVE black :)

Weirdly enough I've never owned a creamy black nail polish ever

and I felt I needed one 

I was in my local drugstore the other day and I saw the Astra counter

Astra is an Italian make up brand
but more specifically it is a brand which is made here in my region Umbria, in a town called Todi.

so I always felt "love" for this brand especially

anyway they recently came out with a HUGE new Nail Laquer line

and here on their website you can have a look and see the huge selection of colours
from creamy to shimmer and metallic everything you need

anyway today I'm wearing this black shade 
number 24 NERO

in Italian Nero is Black

the price is so good only 1,99 €

unbeatable...

I will get more colours for sure


have a nice day

I'm super happy and impressed by all these items

Miranda really picked things for me

this touched my heart <3

thanks again Miranda!



You will see me using these items, reviewing them pretty soon

some of them are already my favorites

but others are totally new to me

I'm super excited  :)

Lise Watier Palette Summer Sunset in Paradis


here is this beautiful palette by Lise Watier
a gift from my Canadian friend

What I love about this palette at first is the packaging
as you can see it comes like a small purse or one of these smart phone cases

in fact inside if you have finished with the shadow you can remove the shadows and the mirror and it can be transformed in a phone case or card holders

I will keep this case it's so pretty!

also the shades are very pretty
My favourite colour is the purple and the brown
the brown has got the better pigmentation as you can see from the swatch

anyway another "fun" information to add 
is that this palette is made in Italy
as you can see from the picture of the back ot the palette

funny isn't it?

NOTD // NYC Quick Dry Nail Polish in 029 Streetstyles




hi Everyone
this is the nail polish I'm wearing today

I recently bought this new polish by NYC and like all NYC make up line this polish was very inexpensive
It was only 1,99€

it's from their Quick Dry line which I love :)

as the name suggest it takes really little to dry and also the finish of the nails stays glossy and shine without applying a glossy top coat

I like these kind of nail polish, I'm usually on the go and I'm always pleased when I can get a nice glossy finish without spending too much time :)

and the colour I chosen is 

029 Streetstyles


and in my view this is a perfect shade for spring/summer

I really love it

It makes me happy by the look of it 

what do you think??


ciao

March Favourites 2014






these are some pictures of my March Favourites.

A huge improvement this month, for not being repetitive anymore... my YSL Youth Liberator foundation is not in the bunch of favourite, it has been for 3 month in the row but, as I explain in the video
the weather got much warmer lately and I found very hard to pull a heavy foundation
so that's why this month I rediscovered my Mac Face and Body in C3


I love it

it is like a tint for your face.. stays on all day.. and it is light 


anyway this is not a post for the review..... 
I will make a video demo and review of this foundation later this month


the rest of the items well you can see them in my video


take care
