L'OREAL SEXY BALM Bold 202 Adventure REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

The blog post of today is about the

L'OREAL

Sexy Balm

in the shade 

202 Adventure

which is a shade out of the BOLD finish
from the line.

This is the second one from the
Sexy Balm, since I have already reviewed the other shade I own

I leave you the link HERE

If you are like me a big
Liquid lipstick fan
you know what is like to feel your lips really dry at times
and having these products allow you to switch
one day with a bit of glossy moisture

I love matte finish lipsticks or tints but really after days of wearing them
my lips CRY

So I have been loving wearing those 
SEXY BALM

This shade is beautiful!
So intense so vibrant
it has a wet look to it which I love.

The lips don't feel sticky at all.

It is a very comfortable formula to wear
and this colour in particular stay on all day
leaving a nice stain, so it is perfect if you are going out for the night
and planning on having few drinks

I totally recommend you to try few shade from this line.

At the moment, at least here in Britain, there are available only 8 shades
(4 sheer and 4 bold)
I hope they will bring more colours in future.

Have you ever tried them?

Let me know.

HUYGENS Paris Le Gommage Visage REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

If you saw one of my latest video
I have subscribed to Birchbox


I decided so because with only £12.95 for month
I get the chance to try out new beauty and makeup products
So I thought it was a "healthy" way of shopping...

Anyway today I'm talking about a product
which was in my June Birchbox called

Paradise Found

The product I'm talking about is from the brand

HUYGENS
Paris

and it is their

Le Gommage Visage

(in english creamy scrub)

This product is so gentle that you can even use it every day.

This product is packed with rice powder particles
which help gently to scrub the skin
and remove any dead skin cells

I have been using it for the last week
(every day) and I love it.

You really need the tiniest amount

I wash my face first, and then I would massage it in

It is delicate and nicely scented (it has a fresh lemon scent not overpowering)

It leave my skin smooth
but not irritated
ready for makeup

I'm glad I've got this product in my box

I have never heard of this brand before...

and you??

Let me know if you knew this brand.. and if you have tried any of their products

take care

Throwback Thursday - Earthquake Memories

Throwback Thursday

Rome April 2009

Here's is the Colosseo or Colosseum and me.

This picture was taken 6 days after the big Earthquake in L'Aquila
where more than 300 people died in the night of the 5th of April.

Today has been two days after the other Earthquake that took place in central Italy... 
and the number of victims is pretty much the same... 

Everybody say

"Life Goes On"

yeah but that's not true for who lost their lives... 

R.I.P.

L'OREAL PARIS Age Perfect Cell Renew Day Cream REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog!

Before leaving Italy at the end of May
my mother bought this face cream by L'Oreal for me.
I didn't start using it till now, since I had other products to finish up
..so that's why the label is in italian..

This is the

L'OREAL Paris
Age Perfect
Cell Renew
Day Cream

In the past I have tried other products from the
Age Perfect line and I was really happy with them.

Here you can read the reviews about those other products

L‘OREAL New Age Perfect Extraordinary Oil-Cream REVIEW
L'OREAL Paris Age Perfect Extraordinary Oil Facial REVIEW

My mother didn't notice that this cream
is targeted for more mature skin than mine
but who cares I still put it on


Anyway this is what this cream claims to do

Age Perfect Cell Renew is an Advanced radiance regenerating
care specially formulated to help stimulate surface skin cell renewal.
Fresher, full of life, skin looks as if reborn.
Product Benefit
Renew helps stimulate surface skin renewal
Refresh radiance is regenerated
Restore skin is plumped with moisture
The Science
Cell defence technology
Natecium® DHC
Hyaluronic acid

Read more at Boots.com

I have used this product for a couple of weeks
and so far I noticed two downsides

first, which is totally personal
the scent...
I don't like the scent.
It is not unpleasant at all, it smell like Melon
but personally I hate fruity fake scents
especially if there are in a product which
I have to spread it all over my face after just being woken up
(it makes me sick)

Second downside
It hurt a lot if reaches the eyes..
I know that you are not suppose to use this around the eyes
but I usually do with other face creams, and I have done with other
L'Oreal Age Perfect product (without having this issue)
This cream stings so much..

so be careful

Afterall I haven't seen a massive difference on the appearance of my skin
but as I said, I have been using this cream only over the last couple of weeks..
I guess you'll need more time to see any changes..

I was pleased to have been able to try this product without paying (since my mother gifted to me)
but I must say I prefer the other line that I have tried before
the Extraordinary Oil - Cream

So I will repurchase them for sure!

Have you ever tried this product by L'Oreal?

Let me know if you have "encountered" the same downsides I mentioned

DON'T WANNA KILL FOR RELIGION - Unquiet Nights (Official Video)


"DON'T WANNA KILL FOR RELIGION"
is a single released by Northern Irish band

UNQUIET NIGHTS

from their second album "Postcards in Real Time".

Directed by Darren Lee of Maverick Renegade Productions.

Purchase/Streaming:

You'll know the meaning to be free
On the bus to Great Victoria Street
Going to the capital
Like so many times before
British Home Stores and then we'll go
Home past the Disney store 'cause I really wanna go
People screaming on the stairs
We gotta move but we aint, going nowhere

Don't wanna kill for religion
Don't wanna be killed by religion
No I don't wanna play that game
Running down the fire escape
In Belfast City

You'll know the meaning to be free
On the bus from Great Victoria Street
Leaving from the capital
Like nothing happened there at all
But in the dull of evening time
Grown men come on the television to lie
Religious leaders taking sides
Out on the street while people die

Don't wanna kill for religion
Don't wanna be killed by religion
No I don't wanna play that game
Running down the fire escape
In Belfast City
Don't wanna kill for religion
Don't wanna be killed by religion
No I don't wanna kill
I love this city and I always, always will.

L'OREAL ELVIVE Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo REVIEW


Hello everyone!

Welcome back to my blog.

In my last Boots Haul video
I showed you that I was going to try a new shampoo

I'm usually a massive fan of John Frieda
I love their shampoo, but sometimes I feel the need to try something different

So that's whey I pick this product out from Boots

(I leave you the video haul down below in case you haven't seen it)


So I picked up this

L'OREAL PARIS
ELVIVE

Extraordinary Oil

Nourishing Shampoo

This one in particular is aimed to

Dry - Dull and Rough hair

(which I think mine is all of these)

So I was very excited to try this product out, especially because
I heard and seen so many people bragging about it

Well.. to be honest now I have used half of the bottle
I can tell you what I think about it
well
I'm not really that impressed
I don't know WHY
Maybe I should have added their conditioner from the same line..
......

I don't like the feeling when I'm washing my hair with it.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying is a bad product, I'm only saying that for me
for my hair type it seems not to work
or as I said earlier, I might need to add their conditioner or mask
in order to get the full benefit

It lathers very quickly but it leaves my hair very dry..
and not that nourished 

It is a weird feeling for me, usually I never dislike a shampoo
there is something about this one that 
doesn't seem to work for me.

I'd like to know from you
if you have tried this before
your own opinions regarding this Shampoo by L'Oreal
because so far it looks like I'm the only one
being disappointed by it...
