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?

What’s in my bag?

The ‘What’s in my bag?’ tag is one of the most popular tags on youtuber and blogs so I decided to make it myself too. I included my most used bag and it’s a very cheap but chic one from Zara; for the daytime I prefer a spacious bags like this one so I can carry around every item I need. The first thing I put in my bag is definitely my inseparable iPhone 5 and right now its cover is the Kate Spade Le Pavillion case. Asos Wayfarer sunglasses_ I bought them last year and I love how they fit my face shape, even better than the original sunglasses from Ray-Ban. Tod’s wallet_ This wallet is quite old and dirty but its taupey colour is a classic. Daily Life Notebook_ I purchased this notebook while back in Shanghai and I can’t know which brand it is from but it’s the most useful organizer and has also a plain section for notes. Canon Ixus 127 HS_ this compact camera was a present and although it’s …

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 …

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 …
