I'm quite new to the world of lipsticks among make up issues. I only used glosses before finding out about the many wonderful colours MAC has in its shops. So I walked in and I had no clue about which one to buy. I tried on loads of colours, then I got myself into MYTH.. and it's been love at first sight, I've been looking for this nude shade FOR AGES! I'm going to buy again when this one is finished. I think this colour suits brunettes better than blondes, but who cares.. if you like it, get it!
One word: AWESOME. I absolutely love this fragrance even if I have to admit it's the typical hate-or-love product. The smell may be too strong for some, as it actually is and you need just two or three sprays: it will stay on all day long. I find this fragrance intense and feminine, sexy and voluptuous: it makes a perfect match with One Million (which I bought for my bf). It's pricey, but a little goes a long way. I would buy it again but only during winter season: I think it's too heavy for summer.
I gave Posietint 3 lippies because I'm still choosing if I like it or not. Its pink is fabolous, but I cannot see the effect I would like to have on my lips. It becomes way too dark.. and I have to apply several coats in order to get a visible result. I didnt' try it as a blush because my combination skin can barely stand powder blushes (it gets oily anyway) so I wouldn't dare using a liquid tint on my cheeks.. god knows the mess it could made. However, even if IMHO it's overpriced, I would buy it again because on my sister works properly and it looks perfect.
Fragrances -Dolce & Gabbana - L'Imperatrice Eau de Toilette

I've always been keen on trying and collecting fragrances. I can definitely say this is MY fragrance. I also love Narciso Rodriguez, The One, Rush.. but I just can't live without L'Imperatrice on my shelf. It smells so good both in winter and summer, it's feminine, fresh, just lovely.
Amazing mascara. One of my favourites with Diorshow Blackout and Maybelline Colossal. Great definition of my lashes, intense black, doesn't get sticky and no flakes at all.
I would give Kiko nailpolishes a 4 just because of the variety of colours. You can find almost every shade of any colour you think about. Unfortunately they crackle up and smudge very easily on my nails, so I have to put some on again after one or two days. By the way, I have plenty of them and I'm still going to keep buying as soon as new colours come out.
My first cream liner, and my only one until now. I'm very satisfied about it. I put some powder on my eyelid first, then I apply the liner and it lasts almost all day long. My only problem was to find a good brush for it, because if you take too much product it makes a thick and crooked line, really awful. If it's your first time as it was for me, you'll need some practice and loads of patience.
I'm a big fan of this product. I use eyeliner almost everyday, and this one perfectly matches even with the lower line of my eye, wich is extremely difficult to define if the product isn't good enough. This eyeliner is a deep and intense black and lasts all day long. I've been buying it since two years ago and I'm going to keep on with it.
I ran out of blush one day and asked to my mama if she could buy me one while she was out for shopping. She came back with this and I was like "mum, chanel is so expensive, you didn't have to!". Needless to say I fell in love with this colour. It adds a very natural but noticeable touch to my cheeks. It's easy to apply and powder is very soft. I'm definitely going to buy it again once this one is finished. Thanks mum!
Mascara -Christian Dior - DiorShow BlackOut Waterproof

My favourite mascara ever. I've tried loads, but this one is the very best for me. Lashes are not heavy but thick and long, they don't stick to each other and the colour is impressive: shiny and deep black, as no other. No water nor tears or anything can take it off your lashes. Totally worth its price. It may be a little hard to get off since it "glues" to your lashes, but Sephora's waterproof bifasic remover is doing a good job for me.
Mascara is one of my obsessions. I've tried tons of brands, from cheap to expensive, and I have to admit that even if I'm using Diorshow Blackout now that could be considered my favourite one, I always keep a Colossal with me. After applying the Blackout, I put some Colossal on and gosh, my lashes look amazing! In general, I believe that most expensive = top quality, but in this case Maybelline's Colossal makes an exception. Lashes are thick but not sticky, very black and long.
This mask leaves my skin soft and it doesn't seem aggressive as some scrubs I tried in the past. I also use Cleanance Lotion Antishine and I think both are very good products.

I love this lotion, I always put some in the morning before I put my make up on, and some in the evening before I get to sleep. I love the smell, very fresh and delicate. It leaves my skin matte and hydrated. I'm currently using my second bottle and I'm happy about the results I get.
Gorgeous! This thick mask leaves my hair AMAZING. I use it once a week after Moroccanoil Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. Take a very little in your hand, otherwise it will leave your hair greasy and heavy! Scent is very strong and reminds me of arabic spices or something like that.. anyway, I love it. 10 minutes are enough for me, then I rinse very very well and dry as usual. My hair is perfect until two days after the treatment.

Very good conditioner, I'm currently using it with Moroccanoil Repair Shampoo. I love the scent, though it may result too strong for some people. As I wrote for the Shampoo, my only advice is to rinse very well or it may leave your hair greasy. A little goes a long way, so the whole bottle will last you many months. After a couple of days, my hair started looking shiny and healthy more than ever. Definitely going to buy it again!
