L'Oreal Infallible 11 Vanilla vs 12 Natural Rose


Hello everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.

Today's about, once again,
the battle of the 2 super similar shades
from the

L'Oreal Infallible Matte
24hr Foundation

11 Vanilla VS 12 Natural Rose

If you have seen my youtube video, you already know
how hard has been for me to show any difference whatsoever between these two shades

I leave you the video down below


Those two shades
at least on my complection do look pretty much the same
and unfortunately even the pictures with flash or close up of my face
do not help to show any differences


I guess the only difference between the twos
is that undertone

Vanilla is slightly warmer 
in fact on my face gives the illusion of a more brighten side

Natural Rose is cooler undertone
it looks a bit more pinkier

But they both look good on me
I can wear them both with no problems

So if you can wear like me a MAC
Nw20 and a C3
I guess you can pick both shades without worried too much

they will be fine!

Have you found any problems in matching your skin to this foundations?

Let me know

SEVENTEEN TATTOO ME Semi Permanent Liquid Eyeliner REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm back with another review, as usual
this time I'm reviewing a new liquid eyeliner
which I have been testing out over the last week or so.

I'm talking about the

SEVENTEEN
Tattoo Me
Semi Permanent Liquid Eyeliner

I've bought this in Boots
and it retails for only
£4.99

I've got the shade Raven Black
which I believe to be the only shade available.

If you like a more matte finish in an eyeliner
this one is not for you
this has got a very glossy/wet finish
which I actually love!

This liner is really 48 hr stay
OMG!
I have never tried something so waterproof
Once it's on this eyeliner do not move
even when you want it to move.. to be gone, removed.
Oils, micellar waters, anything I have tried do not remove it..

Basically you have to rob whichever product you use to cleansing your skin on your eyes
till the liner is gone.

This liner is perfect for the summer time,
for those days at the pool
or at the sea
or at the
Summer festivals...

you won't need to retouch at all with this with this product.

It is also tears proof.

I love it!

If you are looking for a super long lasting, super black
liquid eyeliner
YOU MUST
check this out.

let me know if you have tried it

TOO FACED Aqua Bunny Bronzer REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back!

Today I'm back with another review.

This time is about Bronzer

I love bronzers, especially for this time of year
I don't sunbed anymore but I feel a tanned looking face can be a times nice
that's why I use bronzer to fake a tan :)
like everybody else I guess!

This one is by

TOO FACED

and it's their

Aqua Bunny

Cream to Powder splash- proof Bronzer


First of all, I love Too Faced
I love all of the products I have tried from them so far
and the smell............ like Chocolate!!!

This one is a cream to power formula
which is perfect for the warmer months too
I usually stay away from cream products when the summer comes
but this one is not oily at all

This shade is just perfect to give you that tan look that we all want this time of year.

It has a satin finish, as you can see from the swatch, there are tiny little shimmer particles
which helps to achieve the tan / glowy look


I really love the packaging
it comes with a lovely mirror and a nice little brush
that can be decently use on the go to apply the product.

Have you tried this product?

Let me know what you think

L'OREAL PARIS LUMI Magique Pure Light Primer REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back.

Something I totally forgotten in my makeup collection
(which is one of the reason why from now on I want to have a smaller collection)
was this product by

L'OREAL PARIS

their

LUMI MAGIQUE

Pure Light Primer

As I was saying I neglected this product for such a long time
mostly because I couldn't seen it in my collection.

I'm glad I've found it :)

What I love about this product, which is basically a primer,
the luminosity which gives you is FANTASTIC

A little bit goes a long way
I mostly apply it on my face avoiding my NOSE and my EYES
and then I will apply my foundation of choice 

I also use it as a highlighter on the top of my makeup 
just on the parts that I want to highlight
like cheekbones and cupids bow

I like the packaging small and sleek
travel friendly
It comes with a handy pump
make sure to shake the packeging before to pump the product out
it depends from the season you are in
something in extreme italian heat this product came out separated on me... 
so shake it first just in case!

Afterall I like it
 I recommend it
either for dry or oily skin

and if you have already tried it.. let me know your thoughts!

Couleur Caramel Ombre à Paupieres REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back!

Today's blog post is about a beautiful eyeshadow by the Bio Brand

Couleur Caramel

one of their

Ombre à Paupieres

I received this mono eyeshadow in one of my Glossybox
a long long time ago.

Few weeks ago I noticed it in my eyeshadow collection box and I start using it.

I love it.
I love the shade, perfection for who has green eyes,
and I love the pigmentation,
This shadow has a weird finish
as you can see from my swatch

On the pan it looks very shimmery/metallic
but then when you swatches it..
I didn't use any liquid, this is a totally dry swatch
it looks more like a matte with few glitter particles


It looks beautiful on
and it didn't give me any fall out


I didn't know that BIO makeup could be so exciting...

I feel after having tried this product
I'd like to experiment more into the BIO/Organic/Natural makeup


do you know any brand to recommend me?

Let me know

Face of the Day #3 | Pictures


Hello everyone and welcome back!

Today I'm going to show you few pictures from my latest 

Face Of The Day video
(I leave the link down below in case you haven't seen it)


A normal Makeup day
with a twist of glitter

I love glitter, but they aren't the most easy thing to wear, especially if you aren't clubbing
or if you are not a teen anymore..

But I think a hint of it could make any boring makeup a little bit more interesting


So I went super easy of my eyes, I used a brown eyeshadow by KIKO
I added my black cat liner with NYC liquid liner
and then I added the glitter
only in the inner corner of the eyes


Peachy lips with a more creamy finish



And that's the look

If you want to know each product that I have used to make this look
make sure to watch the video I linked above

Let me know what you think!

Nails Of The Day - KIKO Verde Smeraldo / Barry M Kiwi / Essence Twins Glitter Topper / Seche Vite


Hi everyone and welcome back to my Blog.

Today I'm wearing a new nail combo.
I went for minty green theme

I picked up one nail polish from the

Kiko Power Pro Line
in the shade
34 Verde Smeraldo

Another shade from

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine
in the shade
Kiwi


Maybe by the pictures isn't so visible but
I applied the KIKO Verde Smeraldo (which is a darker shade than the Barry M one)
on my thumb, index and pinky finger nail

then I apply the Barry M Kiwi (which is slightly lighter than the Kiko) 
on my middle and ring finger nail

then I went ahead and apply in those last two nails
a coat of a pretty glitter nail polish by Essence
kind of Holographic type 
called

Twins Glitter Topper


I think the effect is pretty cool fresh and fun
nothing too difficult, I'm not so good when it comes to nails
but still I enjoy painting them
:D

OPS I nearly forgot, of course, as usual I apply my finishing touch
my beloved

Seche Vite
glossy top coat

❤️ 

I hope you can take some kind of inspiration by this combo
and if you do something similar let me know

ciao

but today in fairness she was better then other days


Beautiful nature around is celebrating the Spring



I love flowers

Then it came the time to say goodbye...

ILLAMASQUA Cream Blusher in Seduce REVIEW


Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.

Today I want tot show you a blush by

ILLAMASQUA

their

Cream Blusher

in

Seduce

I already owned a cream blusher by Illamasqua 
and I really love it, it is Lies
and it is a very pale shimmery pink 
which acts to me more as a highlighter than a blusher

Anyway, Seduce
is a fantastic shade
it is matte, without any shimmer whatsoever

It is a warm rosy pink
with a dewy finish

You have to be careful when you apply it
because a little goes a long way
(or you will end up looking like a clown)

As you can see from the swatches it can be very intense
but you can also sheer it down

I love the dewy finish that it gives, so Youthful!

  
Beautiful Blush!

No Mirror Makeup Challenge......... THE BROWS!!!!!!!!!


Hi everyone.. and welcome back to my blog!

Don't be scared from the pictures I've uploaded in this post...
this isn't my regular makeup
but it is my makeup when I did
the

No Mirror Makeup Challenge

here is the video in case you haven't seen it


Apart from the brows.. from far away
everything seems fine...
SEEMS...


Seriously
the base and the lips were quite easy
but the BROWS...
omg.. they are so hard to do without watching...


even the eye makeup wasn't as hard
even though I decided to go for a look without a wing liner
(which is my regular look)
but I knew that I was going to make a mess, that's why I avoided it :)


You should totally do this video
is so fun to film
and interesting...

if you have already done it, leave me the link of your video down to the comments

I'd love to see your version

ciao!
