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?

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.

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 …
