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

Botanics The Power Of Plants - Hydrating Eye Serum Triple Age Renewal by BOOTS

Hi everyone

Today I want to talk about a little products that I have discovered last summer

it is from the Boots Botanics Power Of Plants line

and it is the

Hydrating Eye Serum Triple Age Renewal

first thing first

it retails at 10.49£ but most of the time in Boots you get several offers and usually you can get

skin cream products half price

anyway let's talk about this product

first on the packaging says

"with smoothing purple orchid"

quote: the Purple Orchid is natures answer to skin replenishment.

Enriched with moisturising sugars that hydrate

and help reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles.

Whilst plant antioxidants work to protect from free radical damage,

helping skin stay younger for longer.

in fact this product claims to reduce the appearance of deep lines, wrinkles

and dark circles in 4 weeks.

This product is also formulated with a blend of vitamins A, C & E together with Soy protein

and with Hydrolysed Hyaluronic Acid Technology

To be a drugstore products it aims quiet high

now to be fair

I haven't notice my fine lines disappearing

but also I haven't use it every single day for 4 weeks..

the only thing I can say, it feels so good once I apply it around my eyes, my skin loves it

and even after few hours the application

I still feel the skin around the eyes smooth and moisture

so that's good enough for me


have you ever tried it?

let me know which is your favourite eye cream

Superdrug DEEP ACTION Anti-Blemish Gel

Hi everyone

finally I was able to test this product out

Few weeks ago I had few blemishes

and I apply this product onto them.

I must admit, It really helps

the day after the blemishes were gone or nearly gone, dried out and less visible

I also applied onto my nose, where I'm a bit oily with some horrible black heads...

In my view it seems to have helped there as well..

I guess the fact that one of the ingredient is 

Salicylic Acids 

which help to unclog pores and eliminates spot-causing bacteria

This product WORKS and it is also very affordable

the only down sides, being a Superdrugs product you can only get it in the UK

GARNIER Miracle Skin Cream

Since this product made my October Favourites 2014

I feel the need to talk about it more in depth

I discovered the Garnier Miracle Skin Cream last summer

and at first I didn't get it, but during September and October I was able to "get to know" it better

and now I can finally say 

I love it!

* What does this product claim?

On the box it says

Anti - Ageing
Skin Transforming Care

* What are the effects?


Flawless skin tone, 24hr hydration


Anti-wrinkle, anti-age spots improves visible skin quality

SPF 20


Okay for point (1) I totally see that all the time I wear it, in fact if a day I'm at home and I'm not planning going out I apply this skin cream and my face looks super flawless, like if I wear some foundation, this is totally true, the 24hr hydration to be honest, I never wore it for 24hr non stop.. so I can't really tell about this part.

The point (2) to be honest it is to early for me, since I've only bought it once, if in future I will notice any amazing thing happening on my skin, I will let you informed :)

Another very important thing is the


which turns this skin cream in a tint moisturiser :)

Last but not least



Vitamin C derivative
Vitamin B3
Vitamin B5
Skin-tensor peptides

I totally recommend it as a day cream of course

give it a shot and let me know what you think if you have already use it

NOTD // Bella Oggi Gel Effect Nail Polish - 16 Nude Look

Hi Everyone
today on my nails I'm wearing a very nude and chic nail polish
by an Italian brand called Bella Oggi
and just today I found out that Bella Oggi has got a website 

unfortunately though, you still cannot buy from it internationally

that's such a pity because I've been testing out several polishes by Bella Oggi
especially their Gel Effect formula

and I must admit I'm very impressed, 

the staying power is fantastic

and the glossiness is super shiny

it really looks like if you applied a glossy top coat

just a nude shade called Nude Look

I love it

what do you think?

Real Techniques Powder Brush

Hi everyone

Finally I add an extra "friend" to my Real Techniques collection

this on is the

Powder Brush

This brush can be use to apply powders and mineral foundations

I love to use mine for applying powder or as a bronzer brush.

It has got a big surface area so you don't need too much to achieve the final look

So Far all the Real Techniques I've tried never disappointed me

their quality is amazing with a very affordable drugstore price

I will certainly get some more to increase my collection

I cannot use any other brushes except for the Real Techniques

I love them <3
