MAC Pro Longwear Concealer | Review

MAC Pro Longwear (1).jpg

Hi Darlings,

In today’s post I’m reviewing the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, and this is going to be a DOUBLE REVIEW: both my sista Julia (normal/dry skin) and I (oily/combination skin) use it so you can see from two prospective how this product works.

Let me tell you, she recently become obsessed with make up and I take full credit for it, but when we were younger I remember she only wore a few things and concealer was one of them, so I really trust her recommendations.

I don’t have really heavy dark circles but I have fine lines, so I mainly need a long lasting product (it’s called Longwear), so I combined Julia’s suggestions plus the fact that MAC was on sale for 20% off that day and you know, I basically HAD TO BUY IT!

You can get it on maccosmetics.com or in store for 23$

Emma Watson Golden Globes #MakeupMonday

Emma WatsonGolden Globes.jpg

Hi Darlings,

So, in a never ending poll on instastories (thank you for partecipating, by the way) I ask you to choose between four looks from the Golden Globes and Emma Watson was the winner.

I don’t want to get political but of course this year the Golden Globes were so much more than just pretty dresses and make ups, on the other end though, I loved the looks I chose so much and I was a bit unispired this week therefore I’ve decided to do an inspired #MakeupMonday.

Every girl was so beautiful but I love Emma’s look because it was a bit challenging for me, in fact I never EVER wear orange lips and I had to RUN to my local drugstore to buy one otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to recreate this look.

I absolute love that it’s a modern take of a classic 50’s look with the more baby soft wing and orange lips instad of red.

(I am also doing a first impression of the foundation and the lipstick so let me know how you think the look)

Sephora Once Upon A Look Palette | Review

Sephora Once Upon A Palette (1)

Hi Darlings,

Today’s review is going to be another of my Christmas presents, the Sephora Once Upon A Look eyeshadow palette.

To be honest, I’d never pick this up myself, I’m always on Sephora but I haven’t even seen it, that being said I’m glad my family got it for me because it gave me the opportunity to try something that I wouldn’t have tried myself.

This palette was limited editon for Christmas and it isn’t available on sephora.com anymore but you might still find it in store. Since it was a gift I don’t know the price but I think is something around 15$-20$.

*Dispite the fact it as a gift I will give you my honest review*

Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Balm | Review

Kiehl's Butterstick review (6)

Hi Darlings,

If you saw my Christmas Wishlist you’d know that I really wanted this lip balm and my wonderful sister Queen got it for me, so today I’m reviewing it for you.

We are talking about the Kiehl’s Butterstick Lip Treatment, I have the shade Naturally Nude.

According to Kiehl’s website it should be:

“Supremely hydrating and smoothing balm with a nourishing blend of oils and butters. It’s made with Coconut Oil, with antioxidants, including Lemon Butter, combined with broad spectrum SPF 25 sunscreen. Lips feel and look softer, smoother and moisturized, and stay hydrated for up to 12 hours after application.”

Emma Roberts MET Gala #MakeupMonday

Hi Darlings,

Welcome back, I’m so so EXCITED because FINALLY this blog is SELF HOSTED! It was a journey but I hope you’ll like the new design and you will love the new site as much as I do!

So as you might notice the person in the photo is not me (if this is the first time you see one of my post, well welcome, that’s not me) it’s my SISTER QUEEN! Moving to self hosted caused me a lot of stress so my acne flamed up, plus I have a bug bite near my eye so NO WAY I would put make up on my skin, once I’ll heal you’ll see me again. Promise!

Even if my sister is gourgeous. Thank you sis for the help, love you!

But another reason I wanted my sister is because today’s #MakeupMonday is a recreation of Emma Roberts at the MET Gala look aka my favourite look of 2017 and I think they look quite similar so this make up will suit her more than me anyway. The wonderful Charlotte Tilbury created the look using her make up line but since I don’t have it, I’ll use what I have, hopefully they’ll look similar.

NYE Grafic Liner Look

 

Hi Darlings,

I know today is not Monday but since I didn’t post a #MakeupMonday this week because it was Christmas I thought I could post one today.

I really wanted to do a New Years Eve Makeup Tutorial that was actually wearable, I’ve seen some pretty spectacular looks on the internet but more likely than not I probably won’t be able to do those, or more simply, I won’t have the time.

So this look is still going to be sexy, glam and bold, nothing too hard to recreate though. I think by now you have realised that’s my style, but I love the way a grafic liner looks and it was a huge trend during this past year, so what better way to welcome 2018 than the best of 2017?

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner | Review

IMG_2985

Hi Darlings,

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas, surely I did, today I’m back with another post and it’s a review of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner I know this product is super famous and there are plenty of reviews out there but I also wanted to give you my own.

I want to take a different direction with this blog, infact I’ve noticed that my most loved posts are my #MakeupMondays and my Reviews and those are also the ones I enjoy the most writeing so I will post mainly those.

But, I’m mostly broke and I don’t get PR so I will start reviewing products that I already own that are part of my collection while trying with the help of my sisters to get as much new stuff as possible. I hope you won’t mind that what I review is not new and you will still love to read my opinion on these cult products.

Hi Darlings,

Today’s post is absolutely random, but I really wanted to do it, I saw many of these and I wanted to do one myself.

I love the idea of a Blog Party, to help bloggers meet and grow! I decided to do it today because these weekend is Christmas and I won’t have a post up on Monday so I tought this could run for a little longer.

I hope you are as excited as I am, please share this post so more people can come and meet bloggers and if you like it I might do it every few weeks.

And if you are like, Mimi, what the heck is a Blog Party, keep reading to find out!

Other than that I wish you a very very Merry Christmas filled with love and joy!

Smashbox Full Exposure Palette | Review

1 (1).jpg

Hi Darlings,

I’m so excited to share this review today because this is one of my favourite palettes and one of the most underrated product in the beauty world.

This is the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette and it’s a neutral one, but with a kick, in fact it has the best selection of shades out all the neutral palettes, that’s why to me its one of the best.

Smashbox is also cruelty free so if that is something that you look for in make up, you can’t go wrong with them.
