Beauty Haul #2 from the UK [Pictures]

just a small haul again from me this time half of it is from Northern Ireland and half was made in Gatwick Airport

the fragrance by Vera Wang was bought at the duty free in the airport, with an amazing 40% off 
(I couldnt say no!)

the BarryM nail polish was a present from Helen (thanks so much I love this shade so much!!)
and it's called Red Glitter, perfect name ;)

the other nail polish by Collection I've bough it in Superdrug and it was only 1,99£
I love the shade so much and also the formulation of the polish (if you see it .. pick it up!)

the rest of my haul was made in Boots inside North Terminal in Gatwick Airport

anyway for reviews swatches.. don't worry give me the change to test these products up and then I will be able to tell you my thoughts on them...

if you already bought any of these products please leave me a comment and let me know what you think

take care

Ikea and H&M.... small haul :)

If you saw my video last week you already probably know that before this time, 
I was never in a Ikea before.

Nowadays seems impossible not to visit Ikea.. but, it is possible afterall..

I was insane I love Ikea, everything look good, cool and fun and really I wanted to get everything and take it with me at home, but luckily, I was with a friend of mine, with her car 
so I really held back myself and only bought really few things...



After Ikea I went to H&M and as usual for places like H&M it was mad.. people everywhere.. especially in the dressing rooms...

so I didnt go for any clothing, I only grabbed a pair of hubs and few silver rings....

along with a Nude matte lipstick called Bardot

very 60s :)

my Feta Salad....

Since is getting warmer here in Italy
my menu is changing a bit towards cold dishes instead of cooking all evening, having the oven on or the hub in the house, the best meal for me are salads!

I love any kind of salad, it really depends from what's in my fridge that day to make the salad, 
for example today there was some Feta cheese

I didnt have any red onions or olives, so I can't really called this a greek salad, but still it was super yummy and healthy!

I used half of a cucumber, some peppers (a yellow and a red ones) some lettuce olive oil salt and black pepper

simple and easy

It was nice indeed!

if you lie Feta cheese try this and let me know

take care

NOTD // ASTRA my LAQUE nail polish in 23 Argento Glitter

here what I'm wearing today on my nails

Recently I've been obsessed with the new line from Astra called my Laque

Astra is an Italian make up brand, actually I would say that is an Umbrian Make up brand
being Umbria the region I'm from, in fact Astra is a company from TODI

anyway this brand I believe is easy to access here in Italy, certainly in the Centre of Italy, I'm not too sure if it is easy to get somewhere else... anyway I don't think you can get it outside Italy though

Anyway they restyled their nail polish line and came out with an amazing collection with a huge number of shades and finishes...

also with a brilliant price

only € 1.50

to be honest the quality is amazing for that little money

the colours are so vibrant and glossy

you only need two coats and you are good to go

today I'm wearing the colour 24 Nero all over my nails and for my accent nail I'm wearing number 23 
Argento Glitter

I think it is beautiful

what do you think?

MAC Face and Body Foundation

Finally I've made this Review....
I guess it's nearly a year that I have bought this foundation by MAC

Face and Body in the shade C3
and since I talked about it in my Haul last year, lots of you asked me to make a review/demo about it

so sorry for the huge delay but during the year I have been using also other foundations and in the end I forgot to film the review.... 

To me this foundation is the perfect one for spring/fall

It has got a beautiful satin finish, but if you apply it only lightly it looks like your skin
in fact as you can see from the pictures on my face

It is super natural

I heard though, that can be build  to a more medium coverage

I personally like it with only one layer

the staying power is very good, in fact feels like a stain on your skin

This foundation can also be applied on your body, I heard in fact that is used a lot for models (on their legs) I promised myself to give it a go on my legs soon to see if it makes them look better :)

anyway, I really recommend this foundation to people who have dry to normal skin

I'm not too sure how good it can be for people with oily skin since it has got a satin finish...

anyway if you have any question please let me know

take care
