TOP 5 OF THE MONTH - MARCH 2014

Monday, 31 March 2014


It is time for another favourites products of the month! Here are a few things I have been loving through March.

MAC Lustre Lipstick in Milan Mode. I adore this lipstick. First of all I had to buy this as it's called Milan Mode, I guess it's mandatory if you live in Milan ;) but actually this is exactly my kind of colour. It is a sheer fuchsia pink with some subtle silver glitter. Lovely!

Tanya Burr Picnic in the Park Lip Gloss. I fell in love with this colour since the minute one. It is a very flattering gorgeous pink-coral colour. Also the formula is amazing, so creamy and not sticky at all. 

Tanya Burr Be Bright Be Happy Be You Nail Polish. Another product from Tanya Burr this month. This is a lovely vibrant pink which is perfect for this time of the year. The formula of these is fantastic, so long lasting. Highly recommend!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Roach. It has a deep copper brown colour, so beautiful! These eye pencils are so creamy, extremely pigmented, waterproof and long lasting. 

Nuxe Contour des Yeux Prodigieux Moisturising Eye Cream. This is a really moisturising and refreshing eye cream. It is quite rich which make it perfect for those who has the area quite dry like myself. It absorbs fast and keep the area well moisturised.  I also feel less puffiness under my eyes when I use it. It's almost fully made of natural ingredients with is always a good thing.

What are your favourites of the month?

Happy Monday everyone!


4 NEW PRODUCTS TO PAMPER YOURSELF

Friday, 28 March 2014


There's nothing better that a good pampering session at home. If you face, body or hair need some pampering or you just want to treat yourself, here a few non-expensive products for pampering yourself at home. 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil. If you like body oils you'll love this product from Palmer's. I'm a huge fan  of body oils and also fan of the Palmer's Cocoa formula Body Scrub so I had to try this product. The formula is very light. It leaves the skin moisturised, smooth and beautifully soft without feeling sticky or greasy. The scent is really sweet, like chocolate cookie with vanilla. This scent last on the skin for long although I think I may get bored with this scent easily.

Aussie Miracle Recharge  Shine Leave-In Conditioner. This leaves my hair incredible soft, glossy and radiant. You can use this mist on dry or wet hair and helps to get rid of tangles. It smells absolutely incredible! Highly recommend it!

Essence Deeply Moisturizing Paper Mask. This paper mask is enriched with cucumber extract. Provide moisture to you skin and leaves it soft. Honestly I found the formula a bit sticky, but this is so inexpensive and I think it's worth a try.

Lush Sunnyside bubble bar. I love this bubble bar. It turns the water into a golden colour with some golden swirls. Also it really makes lots of bubbles. Read more about this here.

Happy Friday everyone!


NAILS OF THE DAY: KIKO 362 POPPY RED

Wednesday, 26 March 2014


I recently added this Kiko nail lacquer to my Kiko nail polishes collection and I have to say that I'm loving it. The shade is the 362 Poppy Red. It is a lovely poppy red with pink undertones, really beautiful and super flattering on fair complexions.

I'm quite addicted to red nail polishes. A girl can never have enough red nail colours, right? This poppy red is perfect for this season and I'm pretty sure I'll continue using it during spring time!

Ps.: I heard this is a good dupe for Chanel Le Vernis in Tapage.

Happy Wednesday! 

FEELING LIKE A QUEEN (for 6€/4£) - LUSH SUNNYSIDE BUBBLE BAR

Monday, 24 March 2014


I picked this bubble bar called Sunnyside at Lush a few days ago and I have to say I am really impressed by it!
These solid bars promise to produce a luxurious amount of bubbles when crumbled under the running water. This golden beauty makes lots of bubbles and the water turns a beautiful gold shade and make the bath look like liquid gold, creating beautiful golden swirls in the water. It has lots of glitter but the glitter doesn't stick to your bath.

The scent of this is citrus, orange/tangerine, it's not really strong but the smell fill the whole bathroom creating a relaxing environment.

Overall I had a really lovely experience with this bubble bar and I highly recommend it. Make sure you pick this on your next trip to Lush and feel like a princess!

Have you tried this bubble bar from Lush?

Happy Monday everyone!




HELLO SPRING 2014

Friday, 21 March 2014


Welcome Spring! It's springtime everyone! I'm so exited, personally I love this time of the year and I'm so ready for it! I think is also time to introduce more colours to our make up routine. So here's a list of products I will use a lot during this season. Let's get started! 

Coral Blushes for your cheeks. It is time to take the coral blushes out, they look so beautiful on for this time of the year. My favourites: Coralista by Benefit, this is such a pretty blush that looks beautiful on everyone. I do also also Gilda by Nars, witch is a completely matte coral.

Pinks, Fuchsias and Corals for your lips. Options? a pink corally lip gloss like Picnic in the Park by Tanya Burr, a glossy pink-fuchsia lipstick like this one by MAC called Milan Mode, or a nice coral like this Kiko Glossy Stylo lipstick in the shade 807.

Add a pop of colour to your eyes. Experiment adding a pop of coloured eyeliner. I'm going to try to add a bright eyeliner either the upper or lower lashline with products as the Kiko Glamorous Eye pencil in 411 with is a gorgeous metallic emerald green or the Kiko Automatic Precision Eyeliner and Khol in 711 which is a matte navy blue.

Pastels and vibrant pinks and reds nails. Personally, I like to add the pop of colour on my nails specially. I love these pastel nail laquers by Kiko Cosmetics, the shade 338 a nice lavender colour or the number 376 witch is a lovely pastel pink. A mint green colour is a must in spring! this one is from L'Oreal Colour Riche, in the shade 602 Perle de Jade. I have to mention a nice vibrant pink like this one from Tanya Burr, Be Bright Be Happy Be you, witch I featured on my previous post here. Last, I love a gorgeous orange red that looks amazing on the nails in this time of the year, this one is from L'Oreal, the Colour Riche 304 Spicy Orange.

Ready for Spring? What are your favourites products for this season?

Happy start of the Spring!



TANYA BURR 'BE BRIGHT, BE HAPPY, BE YOU' NAIL POLISH

Wednesday, 19 March 2014


When I first took a peek at Tanya's lips and nails range this nail polish colour grabbed my attention specially. This beautiful pink shade instantly made me think of spring. I do also love the name of it, Be Bright, Be Happy, Be you, really inspiring!
  • It is a vibrant and intense pink colour. Perfect for spring and summer time.
  • You will get a good opaque finish after two coats. The consistency is quite thick and will leave also a glossy finish.
  • It lasted up to 5 days without chipping witch is really impressive.
  • I found the brush quite small and a little frayed. But is easy to use and applies the paint smooth.

Have you tried Tanya Burr's nail polishes yet?

Have a nice day.

LOVE PINK

Monday, 17 March 2014


I really like pink. Specially if we talk about makeup I just can't get enough of this colour. Vibrant pink lips, pink blushes, nail lacquers... even the Naked 3 palette has pink undertones!
I  have compiled a few of my favourite pink products and which also are some of my favourites products of the moment. 

These 3 blushes are some of my all time favourites. Specially the blush Well Dressed by Mac. This is my go-to blush, it goes with everything and is really flattering. It leaves a really nice pink flush on the cheeks with a bit of shimmer. The other two are: Orgasm by Nars witch I like specially for summer and Pixie Pink by Sleek.

The Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman are really great, all of them, not just these with the pink handle.

I really like a nice pink lip colour with a glossy effect and that's why these products are some of my favourites. Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch, Taffy go Lucky lip gloss by Victoria's Secret and this new lip gloss by Tanya Burr called Picnic in the Park. I should also mention here the multitasking Posie Tint By Benefit, a rose-tinted stain for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours and looks really beautiful on.

Pink can have many shades, but all look beautiful on the nails. I love this vibrant pink nail varnish  by Tanya Burr called Be Bright, Be Happy, Be You. Or if you prefer a pink-coral colour this one called Cute as a Button by Essie is perfect. Pastel pinks are always a good idea, for example these two: Free Hugs by Essence or the nail polish 376 by Kiko Cosmetics.

The eyeshadows in the Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay have a clear pink undertone. It's a really beautiful and versatile palette. Do you want to know more about this palette? You can read my review here.

Do you like pink make up as much as I do? What are your favourite pink products?

Happy Monday!
