BOURJOIS Rouge Edition Velvet in Pink Pong REVIEW

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my blog!

Today I want to show you a product I've been loving and wearing for over a year
For some weird reasons I have never wrote a review about it, and it is absurd since I love the product I'm talking about so much!

I don't know what happened, or why I didn't write a review before, but anyway.... here it is :)

I'm talking about the

Rouge Edition Velvet in 

This product came out in summer 2014
at fist with some shades and after during the spring 2015 they came out with more colours
From this line I own 3 shades

But today I'm reviewing the best of the 3
My favourite

Pink Pong

I Love this product
I love the packaging
the applicator, the colour and the consistency as well
It goes one super smooth (but this quality I'm afraid I didn't find it on the other 2 shades I own)
anyway it goes one very evenly without taking too much time
and the longevity is SUPER!

It really lasts all day
without making my lips dry
or having any discomfort

it has a matte finish by without cracking your lips

The perfect formulation I would say

I love this product especially for summer
it is my go to bright pink matte finish product of the summer (it was also likewise for summer 2014)

so it is twice a winner for me :)

Have you ever tried this Rouge Edition Velvet by Bourjois?

Especially Pink Pong?

Let me know your thoughts

MAYBELLINE Superstay 14hr Lipstick in 610 Beige For Good REVIEW

Hello Everyone.

Today I'm going to show you my thoughts on this product
by Maybelline, from their
Superstay 14hr Lipstick line
in the shade

610 Beige for Good

This lipstick is very pretty
It feels super light on the lips
It has a matte finish, but not overly matte, it feels comfortable without drying out the lips

I like to apply this shade without any lip liners
it is a perfect nude/beige colour
It has a lovely fruity scent

I usually go for bright lipsticks in the summer
but sometimes I like to give myself a break by using something nude
and focusing my eye make up more than the lips

This is the perfect shade for doing this

Have you ever tried it?

What's your favourite Nude?

MAYBELLINE Color Tattoo Leather in 85 Deep Forest REVIEW

  Hi everyone
and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm showing you another of my Maybelline Color Tattoo
from their Leather collection

I only own 3 shades from this line

and the one I'm showing you today

From these 3 my absolute favourites is Creamy Beige
is perfect
the shade is beautiful and it is super creamy to blend

the other two
both are harder to blend
and less creamy

I still love the shades though.

This one in particular is


and it is this khaki green/taupe sometime looks more grey than green
it depends from the light

I wish I could use it all over my lids on its one, since this is a totally me shade
but as I said, I find very hard to blend this product
so then I just use it as a eyeshadow base
to pop some colours on top

In case you own this same shade, please let me know if you have the same issue of mine
because if it is only me...

I'd love to get a second one, and upgrade in the creaminess :)

KIKO Purifying Mask REVIEW

Hello everyone
and welcome back!

Today I want to show you this product by KIKO
which I have been using over the last few weeks.

I'm talking about the KIKO
Purifying Mask

I've got this product last year as a gift.
I must say I'm a huge fan of face masks
and I particularly love clay masks, like this one.

I dont usually use masks everyday, it is more like a treat for me that I give myself once a week
and I noticed over the last weeks I've been applying the same one.

This one!

I normally would use this kind of masks only for my T zone
but since this one isn't too "strong" like some others I own (the 

this one by KIKO has claimed to be
Remineralising Purifying Mask
that mattifies the skin for a long time
minimizing any flaws.
It is for combination to oily skin, but even if you have dry skin like me, you can really take advantage of this product and maintain your skin more matte during these horrible hot months.

It contains micro-sponges of plants origin and clay, it helps to absorbs excess sebum, without drying out the skin, and it helps to reduce any dead cells on the skin and any impurity, if you gently massage into your skin before to wash it off after keeping it on for 10 to 15 minutes.

It doesn't have a particular smell, it comes in a 55ml packaging
easy to carry and easy to consume before the expiring time.

If you like clay masks, and you want to mattifying you face during this sweaty summer
try this product

It will help :)

What's your favourite mask?

VIKTOR & ROLF Petite Flowerbomb REVIEW

Hello everyone!

Few weeks ago I was in my local Sephora
and I was sniffing around for a new fragrance for the summer.

If you follow me from a long time you might know that I'm a huge fan of
which I can say to be my favourite fragrance of all time
If you wear the same scent every single day, as it happens it gets harder to smell it on yourself..

so every now and again I like to switch with something new.

This one by Viktor & Rolf
isnt really a new discovery of mine, I tried it in the past back when it first came out, about 10 years ago, and the thing I remember the most about it, was its long lasting longevity.

I notice though that a normal 50ml size can be very pricey, about 20 euro more than a 50ml of my beloved Hypnotic Poison
So I decided to get the smaller travel sized one

Only 20ml which it will do me for a couple of months

so sleek and handy to carry

I don't mind giving up on the bulky packaging
sometime you need a fragrance just to carry in your purse
and this one is PERFECT!

This fragrance was introduced in 2005 as an oriental perfume.

It comes in 4 different sizes
the Petite size (20ml)
the 30ml
the 50ml
and the 

the mail accords are
White Floral 

I recommend you to sniff it next time you are in Sephora.
I love it!
still though, my heart is for Hypnotic Poison <3

What's your favourite fragrance?

What scent you like to wear for summer?

Let me know :)

My Makeup Brush Collection

Hello everyone!
welcome back!

If you saw my last video on YouTube
you already know that I have filmed, after being requested, my Makeup Brush Collection.

I Instagramed a few weeks ago my brushes after being cleaned
and since they looked so nice, and of course clean
I decided to film the video.

As you can already probably tell by the pictures
I own mostly Real Techniques Brushes
I think they are the best value for money
they quality is also amazing, and as a plus they look pretty with this lovely coloured handles.

I also own other brands of course, like few from MAC, and other from Zoeva...

I use brushes just for my own make up
so I don't need a HUGE collection

Please let me know if there are any brushes out there I should get
Let me know your favourites
and If you own some of the one I do, let me know if you are happy with them or not..

Leave me a comment

and of course as usual if you haven't seen my Makeup Brush Collection video
I will leave it down below
for you to check it out!

take care
and see you soon

WET N WILD Coloricon Glitter Single in Brass REVIEW

Hello everybody!

Today I'm back with a very special item, maybe not too wearable or for everyday makeup look
but still I think this season might be the best for wearing such a thing and getting away with it, even if you are not in your 20s anymore :)

I'm talking about the
Glitter Single
in Brass

This creamy glitter is perfect for summer
you could wear it at night or during the day
you can apply it on your face (I put it a little bit on my cheekbones)
or as eyeshadow (it does crease though, bare in mind)
and also you can use it all over your body, why not!

There were other shades to choose from, but I though the Brass colour was going to be just perfect for enhancing the tan

Super inexpensive!

I recommend it, especially this shade
if you are not too scared to play around with some glitters :)

DAVINES NaturalTech Nourishing Hair Building Pak REVIEW

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm talking about a product which made my June favourites last month.

It is a hair care product and I have bought it from my salon.

Last time I was there for my haircut, my hairdresser notices so much damage on my hair, so he suggested me to start using this mask.

The brand Davines is exclusive to salons, you cannot find it in any other stores, and from what I know it is an Italian brand. 

It is quiet pricey but definitely worth.

Packaging wise, it is nice to look at,
it comes in this plastic jar, which looks more like a glass jar
250 g. of product

This product claims to 

"It restructures and nourishes the hair shaft leaving the hair soft, shiny and full-bodied."

Evenly apply 15 gr. of product to lengths and ends. Leave on for 10 minutes according to the hair's condition, then comb. Rinse thoroughly and style. Treatment with Nourishing Hair building Pak can be repeated any time you wish according to hair needs.

I usually use it every shampoo.
I wash my hair with a regular shampoo, I rinse my hair with a towel
then I apply this mask mostly on my damaged hair

I leave it on, for 30 minutes, then I was it off, without apply any conditioner.

I've been using it for a month and I can see a small improvement on the damage hair.

It has a very fresh scent, like lavender and rosemary

It feels good when I leave it on.

I like it.

What mask do you use for your hair?
Any recommendations?

Have you ever heard of the brand Davines?

let me know
