Beauty Haul

A few day ago I dashed by Sephora and bought some item that I clearly don’t need but how could I resist to another lip stain and cheek kit? NARS NARSissist Cheek Kit | I am fond of NARS products since when I saw them in the “Sex & The City” series. Until today I’ve only been using my NYX contouring powder so I decided to give this kit a go because it contains two of the most talked about cheek products: Laguna bronzer, Orgasm blush and Devotee highlighter. Besides this kit comes with a brush but I think it’s a little bit scratchy. YVES SAINT LAURENT Vernis à lèvres in 5 Rouge Vintage | For my first YSL product I decided to try this legendary lip stain in a light plum color. Advertisements

Marc Jacobs Beauty launch

Earlier this week the Marc Jacobs beauty collection for Sephora has landed in Italy and it consists of a whole range of products and accessories. The first thing that pops up is the posh and luxurious packaging  and you might almost take these confections around as accessories. The range of colours is incredibly up-to-date and I added so many products to my wish list first of all the Lolita Palette that contains seven eyeshadows. I had the opportunity to try this piece and I can say that they have a silky texture and they are simply wonderful and perfect for a nude look. Down belown there are all the products I tried: – Genius Gel – Supercharged Foundation: it delighted me. It has a medium coverage with a matte but silky finish and it seems to don’t have anything on the skin. My Make Up For Ever Velvet Matte foundation is running out and this one is on the list for my next purchase. – Remedy Concealer- Concealer Pen: it’s a light coverage concealer and I think that its texture …

Lipstick junkie

I have to admit it: I have collected way too many lipsticks by the years. For an everyday look I like to sport mylipsbutbetter products anyhow this fact didn’t stop me from buying bright lipsticks for whatever occasion – like going to the Oscar red carpet or a fashion show (ehm). CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine in 88 Esprit | That is my most used lipstick ever in fact I put it on My Make-up Essentials and it’s a dark rose perfect for my pigmented lips. CHANEL Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in 57 Insolence | I am not very into lipglosses and this Chanel one is my only item of the category. Despite my reluctant attitude this gloss, that I bought a long ago, has a very good formula not too liquid and with an acceptable coverage. Another pro for Chanel products is the sleek and luxurious packaging, which is one of my favourites out there. Kiko lipsticks are underrated products and they combine both good price and quality. The KIKO Luscious Cream in 505 and the KIKO Velvet …

My make-up essentials

I am literally obsessed with makeup and beauty products but I have a good explanation, well I think so. I have a quite sensible skin and I’m costantly looking for quality products with a good coverage and that don’t cause me breakouts. These are the makeup products I use on a daily basis to “simulate” a no-makeup look. I hope this post can be useful! NARS Sheer Matte Foundation in Deauville | This foundation fits perfectly my combination skin because it evens out the complexion and  mattifies the skin without drying it. MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover in 06 | This is one of favourite products I have ever tried and I used up three tubes of it over the years. This concealer has a high coverage, as its name suggests, and covers easily all the imperfections. Little trick: you have to blend it as soon as you apply it because it dries very quickly. NYX The Twin Cake  in CP15 Honey Beige | I have a quite round face and I think that blush makes me …
