Autumn Beauty Faves | Five to try

Thursday, 29 September 2016
 
FIVE FAVES FOR AUTUMN
___


ESSIE ETERNAL OPTIMIST NAIL POLISH  link
The perfect autumnal shade! I love this nail polish so much and it's one of my favourite polishes ever! It is a beautiful dusty pink, a great shade for everyday wear and it's so flattering on many different skin tones. 
H&M PURE VELVET CREAM BLUSHER #DUSTY ROSE | link 
This gorgeous shade is a soft mauve pink that gives a natural flush to the cheeks. It's a lovely colour for this season. The product is so creamy, it's not sticky whatsoever and it blends so beautifully into the skin. 
DIORSKIN NUDE BB CREME  | link
I always comeback to this! This a lightweight and breathable BB cream that feels light and gives a good glow to the skin. It's very natural and has the right amount of coverage to cover redness and marks. It stays on pretty well, doesn't fade throughout the day.



STILA EYES ARE THE WINDOW SOUL PALETTE | link
I love this palette for this season. It's great for the day looks and evening smokey looks. All the shadows are gorgeous shades. There's a variety of different neutrals colours; browns and coppers, warm and cool toned. There is a perfect mixture of colours for any look. 

SEPHORA CREAM LIP STAIN IN MARVELOUS MAUVE | link
My favourite liquid lipstick! This is a lovely mauve pink-brown colour that is so opaque and long lasting. It's super comfortable to wear, it feels great and lightweight on the lips.  (You can see me wearing this one here)

CULT BEAUTY HAUL
____

Cult Beauty is one of my favourite online beauty shops.
A place that stocks amazing products and brands I can't get easily in Italy. The other day I was feeling particularly speendy on Cult Beauty...
I have bought some amazing products on their site! 
Here's what I picked up...

Anastasia Beverly Hilla Brow Definer link
I love the Brow Wiz so much that I needed to try this pencil as well! It's not as precise as the Brow Wizz but this one is great for when you are in a hurry, you can fill in the brow much quicker with this and makes the process so much easier.
Kevin Aucoin Sculping Powder | link
I have wanted to pick up some Kevin Aucoin products for the longest time I decided to finally pick up this after seeing everybody raving about. I purchased the shade medium and I think it's absolutely perfect. It is highly pigmented and has a lovely cool tone that makes it look more natural than other contour powders.
Kevin Aucoin Eye Lash Curler | link
I wanted to invest in a good eyelash curler and I'm glad I got these! These eyelash curlers curl the lashes gently and opens up the eyes so you instantly look more awake and more beautiful.
Becca Opal Glow on the Go Collectionlink
I wanted to buy the Becca's Opal highlighter for a while now and when I saw this kit I thought was the perfect way to try it out without paying the full price. A great way to save some money! I'm absolutely in love with this highlighting duo, definitely see why there's so much hype. The colour is gorgeous, it's a little too gold for my pale skin though.

YSL FAVOURITES
-----
I'm a little obsessed with Yves Saint Laurent at the moment...Ysl is quickly becoming one of my high-end favourite makeup brands. Not only the packaging is amazing, the products themselves are fantastic. I'm loving these six products...

YSL HEALTHY GLOW BALM-POWDER BRONZER | link 
 I love this product! It's the most natural bronzer I have ever tried. The texture balm-powder of this is amazing, blends beautifully and seamlessly then dries to a natural matte finish but still gives a subtle radiant glow to the face. The shade #3 Epice is the most neutral  colour of the range and the safest choice, the other colours are quite orangy. 
YSL TOUCHE ECLAT link 
I think this was my first high-end makeup product back in the day! I have used it for years! It's fantastic for lighting up your face. It's not very good at covering dark circles although it will illuminate the eye area beautifully. I love the way this lightens underneath my eyes It's really easy to apply, lasts all day and reflects the light very well. I just use it on special occasions now, I find there are cheaper products in the market that will do the same. You could get the same thing at the drugstore for a quarter of the price.
YSL SHEER CANDY LIPSTICK  link 
These are so hydrating and have such a nice smell! They're sheer but give great colour to the lips and even tint the lip a bit. It leaves a love glossy finish. shade 09 Cool Guava is a sheer baby pink colour. 
YSL VOLUPTE TINT-IN-OIL link 
It's a very unusual lip gloss-lip treatment based on oil so it kind of sinks and hydrate the lips. It's a lovely non sticky formula that feels amazing on the lips. It looks glossy on the lips and oil really conditions my dry lips and leaves a beautiful colour. When the gloss fades it leaves a lovely tint for hours. I've got the shade 05 Cherry Me, a vibrant pink colour. 
YSL GLOSS VOLUPTElink 
This was my latest acquisition and I'm loving it, it's such a lovely lip gloss. The texture is great and doesn't feel sticky like other glosses. The shade 20 Nude Carat is a subtle and wearable nude colour with golden shimmer, perfect for daily looks.
YSL BABY DOLL MASCARA | link 
It is a good mascara, it gives my lashes volume, makes them look fuller and longer and doesn't make them clumpy. It's not my favourite, it does a really good job but it's not the best mascara. There are better mascaras for less out there.

Summer Favourites | Top 10 beauty products this summer

Thursday, 8 September 2016




With the summer coming to an end I wanted to do a roundup of some of my favourite products this summer. Here are 10 beauty products I've been loving the most this summer.



                   10 SUMMER FAVOURITES

DOVE DERMA SPA GOODNESS BODY OIL link 
This product feels so luxurious and velvety on the skin. The oil is a golden colour but disappears when is rubbed into the skin. It gives such a lovely luminous glow. It smells divine, leaves skin silky smooth and lasts for ages. It makes your skin very soft and has a subtle sheen to it. The only downside is that the oil stays on the surface for some time and doesn't absorb quickly, leaves my skin feeling a bit greasy after applying. 
BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER  |  link  | 
It's a good all-rounder and the perfect balance of bronze, not too orange or too muddy. It's matte but gives a natural sun kissed look and it works well on all skin types. I love this bronzer for summer because it looks natural, it gives a lovely warmth and glow to the skin.
BENEFIT CORALISTA BLUSH  |  link  
It's such a beautiful blush, it's the perfect coral blush! It gives a lovely glow and a healthy look.
NARS 'ORGASM' ILLUMINATOR |  link 
The perfect summer highlighter! The Nars Orgasm Illuminator is a gorgeous shimmery peachy-pink highlighter, it's not too shimmery and doesn't add much colour; it's quite sheer but it gives a perfect dewy, natural healthy glow. It works beautifully as a blush too. 




CELLU BLUE CUP |  link  
This silicone cup helps fights cellulite and get rid of those bumps and uneven areas. I have been using this for 2 months now and I can see the difference. It takes time and effort but it works. It's very easy to use although it may hurt sometimes, depends on how tightly you apply the cup, you need to follow well the instructions for a correct use without hurting. It's true I combine exercises with a healthy diet (most of the time) and all those things combined helped. It takes time in application to see the results but it clearly works, the skin is much smoother and toner.
LA ROCHE POSAY ANTHELIOS SPF50 DRY TOUCH CREAM  | link 
I cannot recommend this enough, especially for oily and combination skin types. It's not sticky at all and it's great for wearing under make up. It makes a great primer for foundation. It leaves the skin shine free and without white marks.





CHANEL 'ESPADRILLES' NAIL VARNISH link 
It's classy and such a summery colour. The colour is a bright orange-red with warm undertone. It has an opaque coverage after two coats and a lovely shiny finish.
CHANEL ROUGE COCO SHINE 'BOY' LIPSTICK link  | 
I've been using this a lot this summer. Chanel Rouge Coco Shine ‘Boy’ is the lipstick everyone should own. It's a sheer pinky nude colour with some flecks of golden micro-glitter. It’s flattering on everyone, it's easy to wear, and it goes with any makeup look. 
LANCOME JUICY SHAKER 'FREEDOM OF PEACH' | link 
This lip oil from Lancome is very moisturising and so lovely to wear. The shade 'freedom of peach' gives such a beautiful and subtle peachy-pink colour to the lips. 
YSL VOLUPTE TINT-IN-OIL link 
Another lip oil-gloss I love. It's a very unusual lip gloss-lip treatment based on oil so it kind of sinks and hydrate the lips. It looks glossy on the lips but it's not sticky. When the gloss fades it leaves a lovely tint for hours.

August Favourites | Top Five of the month

Sunday, 4 September 2016
AUGUST TOP FIVE      

This month... sorry I've been away on vacation and working planing my wedding (why is planning a wedding so stressful and expensive?) I knew planning a wedding wouldn't be easy, but I had no idea just how stressful it would be!  Anyway I've been also loving these...








GARNIER OIL-INFUSED CLEANSING WATER | link |   
This stuff is amazing! It takes off all my makeup so well even the waterproof eye makeup. Despite of being oil-based it doesn't feel greasy on the skin, it leaves the skin feeling very moisturised, soft and clean.







MAC 'HUSH' CCB | link | 
I used to be obsessed with this product! It's seriously a beautiful highlighter. The colour is a peachy-rose gold-champagne shade that makes you look like a goddess! The texture is creamy but not sticky and the finish is dewy without any shimmer or sparkle.







CHANEL 'ESPADRILLES' NAIL VARNISH | link | 
It's classy and such a summery colour. The shade is seriously lovely and vibrant and it just works so well with everything. The colour is a bright orange-red with warm undertone. It has an opaque coverage after two coats and a lovely shiny finish.




GIORGIO ARMANI LUMINOUS SILK  | link | 
This foundation lives up to the hype! I am impressed. It's such a good product. It's super lightweight but still manages to provide amazing coverage. It's also super long lasting, lasts all day and it gives a glowy, natural finish. Fab foundation!





MAC 'SOBA' EYESHADOW | link | 
I've been using this non stop this month. It's the perfect natural shade, a kind of my lids but better colour. It's a warm golden brown with tiny gold shimmer particles. It doesn't look like anything special in the pan but it's actually so pretty on. A must have for brown eyeshadow lovers!
