OOTD Bank Holiday May 2016


Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my blog.

Yesterday was Bank Holiday
and the weather was so beautiful that made a lot of sense spending the day outside


Here's my outfit.


Let's start from the top

I'm wearing Ray-Ban Sunglasses
(as you can see this time I was justify wearing them since the sun was so strong

My bag is my beloved H&M faux leather fringe bag

I'm wearing a cardigans on the top which I took off straight away since it was so warm
from the brand International
I like a lot the golden studs details

Then I'm wearing a 90s inspired tshirt with smiling faces by Primark

My black distressed jeans are from the brand DV8

and for shoes I wanted to be comfortable
so I'm wearing my black Converse All Star 

I hope you like the outfit.

Let me know what you think!

NAIL Colour Combo Barry M Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint in Slip Stream and Dragster


Hi everyone!
I'm back today with another of my

Nail Colour Combo

Today I went a bit against the spring/summer wave

Choosing two very dark shades
probably more suitable for winter.. but, Hey Ho... who cares ;)

Both shades are from the brand

Barry M

(one of my favourite drugstore nail polish brand)

I actually filmed a video with all my BarryM Nail Polish collection over a year ago
and I feel it needs a little update, because since then I have purchased more and more

Here's the video anyway


In face the 2 shades I choosen today, I didn't own them last year when I filmed this video...

Anyway

Shade Number 1


A very dark Grey shade


Shade Number 2


A nice Purple colour


Both of these nail polish come from the same line
called

Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paint

Do you like this combo?

Let me know

MAKEUP REVOLUTION Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Keep Lying for You REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to show you a lip product
a drugstore product
very affordable, so maybe not the best quality out there but still
if you don't have a big budget is good to know that you can play around with all
the makeup trends


I'm talking about a Liquid Lipstick type of product
...Actually...
I was thinking to film my Liquid Lipstick Collection soon...
I hope you will be interested :)

.

Anyway, the product I'm talking about is from the UK brand

Makeup Revolution

and it is one of their

Salvation Velvet
Lip Lacquer

in the shade

Keep Lying For You

I already own another shade from this line
the shade What I Believe
a peachy nude shade (which I love)

This one I'm showing you today is a warm tone purple
beautiful shade!!

I love purple lipsticks but sometimes is hard for me to pull them off
It really depends from the shade
for example MAC Heroine looks HORRIBLE on me
since it has way too much blue undertones and it is too dark for my liking..

This one, well I feel I can pull it off much better, since it has a lot of pink in it..
making it way more wearable...

what do you think?

Let me know..

have you ever tried this product by Makeup Revolution?

Leave me a comment..

ISADORA Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow 61 Pink Apricot REVIEW


Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog!

Today I want to talk about an eye makeup product..

I received this product from my beloved friend from Sweden

Jessica (MissJessiBel)

this is in fact a swedish brand

I'm talking about

ISADORA

and their

Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow

in shade 61

Pink Apricot

First of all I love cream shadows, since I'm not a professional makeup artist,,,
or anything like that...
I find that cream eyeshadows are much easier to apply than
any powder eyeshadows..

I also think that with this product you can achieve a very fast look
just apply this on your lids and you are good to go.
It has a metallic finish and the shade is perfect for one colour look

a Pinky Apricot colour.. beautiful especially for the summer
with a bit of tan, it is the perfect shade!

I love it!

Have you ever tried this product?
or any product by the Swedish brand Isadora?

Let me know

KIKO Milano 3D Lifting Gommage REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.

Today I'm about to talk about a skincare product
by the Italian brand

KIKO Milano

I'm talking about their

3D Lifting
Gommage

I've been testing out this product over the last month
as you can also see here on my Instagram


This product is an Exfoliating Renewing Scrub
for your face
and it comes in a 75 ml packaging

The product itself has a pretty pink/lilac colour
(which I haven't seen it before and I must say I like it a lot!)

It works like any other scrub, you put it on
avoiding the eye area
then leave it on for up to 10 minutes
then wash it out..

hey this is paraben free!!!

I like it, it makes my skin so smooth after using it..
now, does it lift my skin (3D lifting effect)...
I haven't seen that yet
hopefully it does!!!

I'll keep using it and if I see a major change I will let you know
for now I enjoy the pamper effect that gives me
once a week!

and you?
Do you treat yourself once a week with masks, scrubs etc?

Let me know what your favourites are :)

Dresses LOVE/HATE


I love collecting clothes, especially dresses,
as you might have noticed on my latest video

My Dress Collection
(I leave the link of it down below in case you haven't seen it)


Anyway as I said I love collection dresses
but I love LESS wearing them

which is pity, I should force myself to embrace myself, my figure and wear
skirts or dresses, instead of ALWAYS jeans.

I love jeans because make me feel very comfortable
also I'm alway aware of the outside worlds and the dangerous things that can happen to you...
So
I always thought jeans are more safe than dresses or skirt...
In ANY occasions...

BUT

It's pity to wear the same style everyday especially when I own such a HUGE collection
of nice dresses

Here some of them...






Anyway, I really hope I will wear more dresses in future..

what do you think?

Are you a 24/7 Jeans girl? or you do wear dresses and skirts more?

Let me know

MUA Eye Define Volume & Line Mascara REVIEW


Hello everyone, welcome back!

Today, unfortunately, is not a good review

I usually like to talk about products that I have enjoyed, leaving out
bad experiences..

I'm not saying that this product is the worst I have tried, just it does not work for me.

I'm talking about the

MUA
Makeup Academy

Eye Define

Volume & Line Mascara

When I first saw it in Superdrug, I was really intrigued by it
the gimmicky look to it wanted me to try it so bad...

It is a mascara, and kohl 2 in 1

I love the idea of it.. that's why I bought it
but

I'm afraid to say that neither the mascara or the kohl work for me

The thing I can't stand of the mascara is the wand 
way too big

the formulation isn't too bad, but the wand makes impossible to apply nicely
(at least for me)

Also the Kohl, it is not black as I like, and the staying power is really low

well at least I didn't spend too much money for this product being from the drugstore

As I said, this is my experience maybe you have tried this product and loved it..

Actually, if you have, let me know

JASON Vitamin E 5,000 i.u Skin Oil REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to talk about a product, a Skin Oil
from a brand called

JASON

their 

Vitamin E 5,000 i,u

Skin Oil


The JĀSÖN® Story
1959.

While the big companies mixed new chemicals to create:

Perfumed skin creams that promise miracle results
Petroleum hair gunk for that swell greaser look
Shellacking hairspray for helmeted ladies’ hairdos
A group of independent thinkers drew upon the pioneering spirit that was so much
a part of their California heritage and set out on a road of rediscovery.
Theirs was a path back to simple, wholesome ingredients proven safer and proven
to work together in naturally effective ways.

And so the JĀSÖN®
(which means "healer" in Greek)
brand was born.

JĀSÖN® Vitamin E Oil 5,000 IU bathes your body in healthy, anti-oxidant rich moisture.
Vitamin E Oil plus 5 essential natural oils of Almond, Apricot, Avocado,
Sunflower and Wheat Germ renew skin’s softness.
Use alone on dry spots all over the body, or add a few drops to your favorite
JĀSÖN® Hand and Body Lotion.

You can get it on Amazon

I really love it.
I love the smell
I love the feeling of it
I use it on my body and on my face at times
and It leaves my skin super smooth

I would totally try more products by this brand in future..
actually if you are familiar with them
and you want to recommend me any other products
leave me a comment :)

NAIL Colour Combo KIKO 389 - BARRY M Sugar Apple


Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my channel.

Today I'm back with a

Nail Colour Combo


This time I only used two shades
and as you can see the theme this time was minty green.

*

Number 1 shade

KIKO number 389
I apply this slightly darker minty shade on my Thumb and my Pinky


Number 2 shade

Barry M - Sugar Apple
it is a bit more pastel than the kiko
and I applied it on my index, middle and ring finger nails


I didn't feel the need to apply the final layer
of top coat this time
maybe I was lazy, but I must say those two shades
look very nice and glossy by themselves 


I recommend them if you like minty green...

FRIA Jaluronic Acid Face Mask REVIEW


Hi everyone!
Welcome back to my channel..

In the last while I have seen myself using regularity

Facial Masks

 I have never really bother with this thing, but I must say giving myself 10 to 15 once a week
is not bad at all..

The mask I have used today is by the brand

FRIA

Not to sure where is brand is from, I know that I can get it in Italy
in the local "drugstores" such as Acqua e Sapone

They do a wide range of face products
such as makeup remover wipes
and also masks

The one I have tried today is their

Jaluronic Acid Mask

in the ingredients list there are many goodies
as such as
Jaluronic Acid (hence the name)
Vitamin E
Aloe Vera
Provitamin B5
Glycerin

You keep it on for 10 minutes
and then when you take it off
you can noticeably see the appearance of your face looking more
moisturised
and smooth

Take time for yourself even once a week..
will make you feel more "loved!

I have throw out other empties lately

So I have used up a lot of items
but also giveaway a lot of them


Beauty, body care, Mascara..
Eyeliner
and nail polish...

Anyway if you want to see more in details what are my thoughts on those products

YouCam Makeup Versions of Me



Hello everyone this blog post is a bit different than the usual ones..
It isn't a review of a product
well maybe in a way it is..

Earlier this year I have discovered an APP on my iPhone
called

YouCam Makeup
OMG since I downloaded for free on my phone I haven't stopped
making different versions of myself

It is really funny, fascinating
you can also do your family and friends..

like for example here is my granny

Before and After



Anyway I have played around with this app, changing hair styles, 
changing eye colours or even just the shape of my brows..

OMG

THE BROWS...

they do change the entire face...

Here some "versions of me"




 


Finally this last pictures

these are the brows I would love to have!!!!!!!


I want these!!!


My natural brows are so arched and since I'm getting older
I found them to harsh for my face...
In my view, arched brows make you look
OLDER
and
EVIL looking

(so really not a nice look)

 I wish somehow, someone...
could tell me what to do in order to make my brows

like above!

Please let me know...

A-Derma Avena Rhealba Lip Balm REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I want to talk about a product new to me
which I have been using over the last month.

Forgotten, as it happens to many other beauty items of mine, I rediscovered it lately
just because I was sorting out my products for my imminent MOVE to Northern Ireland

This was a product that came with Glossybox
and at the time I totally neglected it

Anyway I'm talking about the

A-Derma

Avena Rhealba

Lip Balm

 This product is so nice to wear
It feels soothing on my lips

I wore it a lot during the days I was in Rome for the Italian Open of Tennis
all day under the sun, my lips were so sore, then I apply a layer of this product
and everything went back to normal.

I also Love to use it as a clear gloss
I'm not sure if it is very visible by the picture
where I'm wearing it on lips
but this balm has a very glossy finish
totally not sticky though, it feels more like an oil


I really like it
This was certainly a great good discovery from my Glossybox

Have you ever tried this product, or anything from this brand?

Let me know.

Ciao
