Shopping Wishlist: Ri2K Ivy Suede Grab Bag

Picture from Asos.com

Hey guys!! I was on Asos.com and I saw this beautiful bag on the clearance section, I simply wanted to share it with you. Isn't it gorgeous? You can choose between two colors, violet (my favourite) and pink. It was originally 141.02€ and now is 87.18€, I think it's a pretty good deal! I love the suede fabric with leather pleated panelling, round leather handles and silver-tone metal detailing. The bag has also a structured frame with piped trims and a zip closure. The color is just amazing for every season.

Link to where you can get it: http://www.asos.com/Ri2k/Ri2k-Ivy-Suede-Grab-Bag/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1568189&cid=9714&sh=0&pge=3&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Violet

E.l.f: Studio Conditioning Lip Balm Spf 15 in Nice & Natural

Hello guys! Almost two weeks ago I made an order on E.l.f (I posted the haul this morning but I was late) and I've been trying everything I got. I wanted to talk about their new lip balms, I have three of them (Mellow Melon, Peaceful Pink and Nice & Natural) and so far I really like these balms.
Nice & Natural is a nude pinky color, it has a good pigmentation and it moisturizes your lips pretty well. You can use it alone or layer it over a dry lipstick (like the ones from the E.l.f 1 dollar line). The only downside is that you have to stick your finger in it to apply it or you need a portable lip brush.

Price: 4€ in Eu.
Rate: 3.5/5

Make Up For Ever: New Aqua Liner n°5 Liquid Eyeliner


Hey guys! A while ago I bought this new liquid eyeliner from the Make Up For Ever new line, It's called Aqua Liner in n°5. It is a beautiful bright light blue, with a hint of turquoise in it. It is extremely pigmented, infact you only need one layer of it, but it has a negative side; it is so waterproof that it stains your lid, ever if you apply it over an eyeshadow. It is so hard to get it off! I bet that if you don't wash your face for two days, it would still be bright.
It's pricey, about 20€ here in Europe, but the color is so unique, I've never seen something similar to it.
- Longasting (almost too much)
- Beautiful color
- Pigmented

- Pricey
- Hard to get off
- It stains

Rate: 4/5

Hope you liked it.

Mellow Melon is a corally peachy color, it has a good pigmentation and it moisturizes your lips pretty well.

Sleek: Blush in Rose Gold - Review & Swatches

Hello guys! Tonight I wanted to talk to you about one of my favourite blushes of all time. I won this Sleek blush thanks to one of their facebook contest, but this is my honest opinion. It's one of the most beautiful blushes I've ever tried;

the shade is in Rose Gold, it is a shimmer blush and it's a pink-peachy color with golden shimmer in it. It gives the skin a beautiful glow and it has an incredible pigmentation; it also goes on smoothly and creamy.

I think it's perfect for all skin color. I have very fair skin, so I have to be careful (too pigmentation) and I believe it would work on darker skintones too.

Price: 6€ in Eu.
Rate: 5/5

I hope you enjoyed.

Fashion icon: Annalynne McCord

Hello guys, I wanted to start a Fashion Icon Serie because I saw how much you loved my post on Blair Waldorf Style. Today I wanted to talk about Annalynne McCord from 90210. I love her sense of style, she is a beautiful girl, she has amazing features, her cheekbones are just Wow. I also love her makeup on the show and out. Here's some of my favourite Annalynne outfits' I picked for you:

Formal occasion:

AnnaLynne McCord wearing Flamenco Style Gown

I love this dress, it is so feminine, classy and the color looks great on her. She doesn't have a generous decolté, so she opted for a strapless bustier dress that gives the appearance of bigger breasts. The pumps she's wearing are a perfect match for the dress, simple nude peeptoes.

Semi-formal occasion:

As you can see, she loves pinks and nude colors! I really like the purple shoes with this neutral dress, it give a pop of color. I love the flower stones she has on her shoulder and I adore one sleeve dresses.

Casual Look:

She's obsessed with neckties! I like this school girl look, she pairs it with platot pumps and makes it dressier. What do you think?

Let me know if you like this kind of blog posts.

Mac Cosmetics: Surf Baby Haul: Gilded White Eyeliner - Swatches & Review

Hello guys!!! Two weeks ago I went to Mac to check out the new Surf Baby collection, but I wasn't so impressed with it. I really liked the Quite Cute one (I bought a lot of stuff), but this summer collection just isn't cool. The lipsticks were similar shades to the limited edition previous ones and the permanent collection has colors more beautiful than them. The eyeshadows were boring, except for a teal shade, but I hate eyeshadow in pot, I never reach for them and I don't like to depot them. The lipglasses were similar shades to the lipsticks. The blush was ok, but I can find at least 3 dupes for that color in the Mac permanent collection. The only thing that caught my attention was one of the two eyeliners. I bought the one in Gilded White; it is a beautiful white shade with gold sheen, it is the same color of Mac's Nylon eyeshadow, which I love. It's creamy and you can use it as an eyeshadow base, inner corner, browbone and on your waterline (but on the waterline it doesn't show up so pigmented, it's not a Kohl pencil).

Price: 16 € in Eu.
Rate: 4/5.

I hope it liked it.

Best Lips Pairing: E.l.f Lipstick in Classy - E.l.f Mineral Lipgloss in Pageant Princess

Hello guys! Today I want to start a new series of posts regarding best products pairing. Lately I've been loving this lip combination: E.l.f Lipstick in Classy with E.l.f Mineral Lipgloss in Pageant Princess on top.I love E.l.f , it is inexpensive brand, available in all countries through their websites.
The new 1 dollar lipstick are awesome, especially this one in the color Classy, which is a medium pink with an opaque finish. It is a bit drying if don't apply a lipgloss on top, so I paired it with another E.l.f products, the mineral lipgloss in Pageant Princess, which is a light pink with gold shimmer. It's not too sheer and I really like it because it isn't sticky at all.

Here's a photo of my lips wearing these two products together:

I hope you liked it!

Lush Haul: I love Juicy, Rub Rub Rub, Rising Sun Japan Soap

Hello guys! Yesterday I went to Lush and I bought some items I wanted to share with you!

I repurchased the I love Juicy (Tutti Frutti) shampoo because is great for oily hair like mine, it leaves you with silky smooth hair and you don't need a conditioner after that shampoo; it also makes my hair feel clean for 3 to 4 days, which is a record for me. The downside is that it is a bit pricey (19.99€ here in Italy for 500gr), but it lasts a lot of months beacuse you need just a tiny bit of it.

The girl at lush made me try a really cool body scrub called Rub Rub Rub (Atollo 13), she told me she uses it as a daily body shower gel, I'm going to try it as soon as possible and I'll let you know what I think about it. 11.50€ for 330gr.

Lastly I bought a soap to support the Japan victims, Rising Sun Soap. It is a coconut soap and It smells great, all the proceeds go to Japan, which is great! I think the price was about 4.50€ I'm not sure.

I hope you liked them.

Catrice Infinite Matt up to 18 h Foundation n° 010 Light Beige

I bought this foundation two weeks ago and I was so excited to try it, because you don't often see drugstore matte foundation, but I must say I'm not impressed by it. It's kinda heavy for the amount of coverage it gives and It looks shiny after a couple of hours, even with a matte powder on top.

The only thing I really like is the smell, it has a flower scent. It blends easily but the color is too neutral, it looks almost ghostly, especially in photos even if it doesn’t have spf in it.

Have you tried it?

Price: 6.49€ for 30ml.

Rate: 2.5/5


Catrice Matt Mousse Foundation n°010 Light Beige: Swatches and Review

Hello guys! I'm here today to let you know what I think about the Catrice Matt Mousse Foundation that I've been using for the past two weeks. My colour is n° 010 Light Beige.
I like this product, I'm not in love with it though. It is a mousse and the first time I've used it, I applied it with a flat buki brush and it looked pretty heavy and cakey on my skin; so I tried a duo fibre brush and It looks very natural with that. The color seems dark but once you blend it out it looks like the color of your skin (I think it reacts with the warmth of your skin). It is smooth and It lasts quite a bit for a mousse (up to 5 hours with no touch ups with powder). The coverage is good but I don’t usually have breakouts or particular redness and spots. The thing I like the most about this foundation is that it’s so quick to apply, when you are in a hurry is so perfect, it blends effortlessly.

Price: 4.99€ for 16g.

Rate: 3.5/5
