It has been a while...



Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today's blog post is going to be a little bit different from my usual Beauty/Style posts.
I just wanted to "chat" a bit, so that's what this post is about.. a small chat.

I have been away over the last week, and I wasn't able to keep up posting here on my blog
or neither on my youtube.

I took a break, and I liked it.

It made me understand that "forcing" myself to post
every single day here on my blog
was starting to feel too much like an unwanted job
and when you start disliking your hobby
SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE.

I will film a video to explain this situation
in order for you all to understand what's going on.



See you soon.

EVE LOM Cleanser + Cloth REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

This is

EVE LOM

Cleanser + Cloth

which I have found in one of my Birchbox some months back.


The EVE LOM Cleanser changed the face of cleansing and continues
too, being expertly balanced for all skin types,
skin concerns and environmental conditions.
With its signature blend of four aromatic plant oils, the result is incredibly
glowing, radiant skin with a smoother, more refined texture.

Benefits:
Deep cleanses without drying or stripping the skin
and removes even the most stubborn of waterproof make-up 
Thorough cleansing and gentle exfoliation enables skin cells
to regenerate quickly and provides a receptive base for beauty
products to work at their best 
De-congests, and with the signature massage technique helps drain toxins 
Exfoliates, tones and improves circulation when combined with the Muslin Cloth 
Softens and conditions the skin 
Visible benefits for all skin types 

Actives:
Clove Oil (has antiseptic properties to encourage clear skin),
Eucalyptus Oil (helps drain away toxins),
Hops Oil (tones),
Egyptian Chamomile Oil (softens and soothes),
Cocoa Butter (conditions)

Cost:   £55.00
Size:   100  ml
Expiring Time:   9 months
You can BUY it HERE

It is a beautiful cleaning balm.
It feels so easy to remove my makeup when I use this product.
Although in Birchbox there was only the travel sized of 20 ml
I was able to use it for sever times and made up my mind about it.

I actually think this product is worth the money
if you have such a budget you might want to give this a go.

I liked it.

MAC Creme Cup [Swatches]


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

Today I'm going to show you
some swatches
on my lips and my hand
of this

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick

which is

CREME CUP



This is the swatch on my lips.
The Left side is with only one layer of Creme Cup
On the Right side instead 
I have applied a layer of concealer first
in order to make my lips base colour even and cancel out
my natural lip colour
(since I have really pigmented lips)

I think that the real colour of the lipstick
shows out much better on the right side.



Here's the swatch on my hand


If you want to see how this lipstick applies
I leave you the video down below


Take Care

On the left side is
CHATTERBOX

VIVA GLAM NICKI


Same here in this swatch on my arm

Left Chatterbox
and Right Viva Glam Nicki


Do you think those two lipsticks are similar after all?

Let me know what you think.

I leave you the video of me swatching them and talking a bit about them
down below

Vegan Cheese from Tesco


Hi everyone, and welcome back to my blog.

I wanted to do a shoutout to this product.

I know it is a weird post for me
but I'm not just all about beauty and fashion.

I love FOOD.

Last September I become a Vegetarian.
To be honest I have been more a Vegan than a Vegetarian
avoiding as much as possible dairy products
(when I can)

I like to say that I'm a 95% Vegan.. working on become a 100%.

But anyway, it was a year or so that I didn't eat cheese
I didn't even miss it.. but

TESCO

came out with their 

Free From Line

with a big selection of

VEGAN CHEESES

There was a 3x2 offer
so what better time to give them a go? right!
I tried those 3 first

the Smoked Cheese
the Jalapeno & Chilli Cheddar
and
the Medium Soya

My favourite one is the Smoked Cheese
it reminded me so much the Italian

I'm so happy to have found this alternative.

Even if you aren't a Vegan
just give it a go
have a try.

I recommend it!

I wish I can say more about this serum.
I think that before having an opinion of a product like a serum
you really need time before to be able to say
if the product delivered or not what it claimed

Since I received this product from Birchbox
and the size was only a travel size,  10ml
Apart from saying
that once applied it on my face
my skin felt really good
I cannot say anything else.
Just because I didn't have time to see anything else.

I love the name of this product though.

I like to live my life by this motto too..

"The Older, The Smarter"

Throwback Thursday
Me and the Sisters - Sardegna Italy August 2005

This throwback today is very relevant.
Raffy (which in this picture is the one on my the left)
my best friend from since I was 11, she recently moved in Northern Ireland too and today
her sister Titty (the one on my right) came to Belfast to surprise her.

So the 3 of us are united again.

You'll see pictures with the sisters during this week for sure.

INGLOT AMC Eyeliner Gel in 90 REVIEW


Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.

This is

INGLOT

AMC Eyeliner Gel

in the shade 90

High intensity pigments provide ideal coverage
and rich colors after just one application.
The creamy and delicate long lasting formula dries
to a long lasting, smudge proof, and crease proof finish.

Hypoallergenic, waterproof.

Cost:  £13.00
Size:  5.5g
Expiration Time:  9 months
You can BUY it HERE

I was already a big fan of their
eyeliner gel number 77.
THE BEST
black gel liner I have ever tried.

Sometimes, I wish I could wear something less harsh than back.
So last time I was in my local INGLOT Store
I decided to pick up this dark brown
number 90

I love it especially on my water line
it seems to make my green eye pop.

I also use it to create my usual cat eye liner
I really like the softer effect.

The staying power of this eyeliner is the same of the 77
Perfect!

I love this product.
