THE ITEM | Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks

If  I have to choose just a type of lipsticks, I will surely go for the sheer ones. For a night out or a special event I dare to wear a bold lip but the 90% of time I am late and I just run out of the door and put on the lipstick while walking. Plus, I am fascinated by those 60’s icons like Jane Birkin or Brigitte Bardot with their luscious lips with just a hint of colour. Now, even though I do not have those full lips I am always looking for the perfect lipstick to recreate that effect. Because of this reason I accidentally started putting on my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine collection through the years and I would have bought even more shades if these lipsticks weren’t so pricey. Se dovessi scegliere una sola tipologia di rossetti, preferirei senza dubbio quelli trasparenti. Anche se per un’occasione speciale oso con labbra di un colore acceso, la maggior parte del tempo sono sempre in ritardo e applico il rossetto di corsa mentre sto per …

THE ITEM | NARS Audacious Lipstick

NARS lipsticks are always on point. In fact, I love every lip products I’ve tried from this brand – above all the Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella – so when everyone in the beauty sphere started talking or writing about the Audacious Lipstick range I could not help buying it.  I wanted to try Ingrid because I saw it on a lot of youtube videos but unfortunately we don’t have all the original 40 shades here in Italy. In the end, I choose the Jeanne shade which is a semi-matte cherry red with a hint of brown. It has a long lasting formula and gives a high coverage without over drying the lips. I love the bold lips trend and I wear this with a natural eye make-up and a lot of mascara. Now I am torn whether to buy an orangey red shade from the Semi Matte line or not. I let you guess what my final decision will be. Have you tried yet this new NARS line? If yes, what did you think about it and what colour would you recommend?

THE ITEM | Dolce & Gabbana Shaping Eyebrow Pencil

Lately there’s an hype/excitement over brows and I am full on it. I could go out with no foundation, concealer – I am sorry for you all – or lipstick but I can’t renounce to fix my eyebrows because it instantly gives a fresher look to my puffy face. I have always used the MAC Eyebrows Pencil in Lingering and the Kiko Eyebrow Expert in 01 but I wasn’t completely pleased, therefore I continued to look around for something new to try. It seems to me that every blogger or youtuber own the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil and I was fascinated by its triangular shape. Of course, they don’t sell Hourglass in Italy so I repeatedly searched for another brand who produced a similar pencil and then I found out the Dolce & Gabbana Shaping Eyebrow Pencil. I didn’t find a lot of reviews about it so I went to the nearest counter, I tried it on and Preach it!. I ruminated about the possibility to purchase that product or not because it’s extremely high-priced but then I gave up. The triangular shape makes the application …
