This was a totally random find at an open air market here in Milan. I always take a look at the make up benches, as I often find great deals for ridicolous prices.
So, last time I got this product in the shade Trance. There were only two pieces avaiable, this one and another darker one. They were sealed and there were no testers, so I had to do a leap of faith and buy it - but for 2,50 …

Lipstick - RIMMEL - Rich Moisture - Diva Red

Sep/10/2018

I have this love-hate relationship with Rimmel. I really enjoy their concepts and their range of products, but I struggle to find the "it" item that should represent the brand. I always stick to their compact powder I owned both in transparent and peach glow, but other products? Meh. The Kate matte lipstick collection, the one with the red body, was amazeballs but they disappeared …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel

Sep/10/2018

I don't get the hate either!
First, two disclaimers: in Italy, Neutrogena is sold almost only in pharmacies, hence a higher price for a product that, for example, costs almost half in the US. This one costs around 10 euros here. Second thing, my husband works at a pharmacy so he gets loads of freebies, full size testers and he always bring them at home for me to test them and review …

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

I'm annoyingly picky when it comes to choosing eyeliners because they have been my staple since my first day of makeup. Pens are my favourite so I'm always looking for the perfect one.
Alas this one isn't. I'm aware that KVD products are vegan and so on, but cruelty-wise all industries are under strict control and animal experimentation is obsolete at this point of …

Blush - Too Faced - Love Flush Long Lasting 16hr Blush Wardrobe

I don't have any words to describe this palette other than out of this world!
I'm a big blushes fan, as I love draping instead of contouring. It might look too 80s but, luckily, not on my face, so I love to have a choice and mix the colours if needed.
This palette was very good value considering the brand, the design and the huge colours choice. It's waaaay bigger than …

Jul/07/2017

Love love love the product. Got a little stock to bring it back with me after holidays abroad because I can't find it in Italy.
It's literally what it says: 3 minutes, and you're good to go with luscious, soft and defined hair. The bottle helps saving product, and a little goes a long way! I also love the smell even if it doesn't really last. Really helped curing my hair …

Hair - Aussie - Real Volume Conditioner

Jul/07/2017

Loved the product. I read about Aussie here on MUA but never found it in Italy, but then I went on vacation in Croatia and I found it there. I really enjoyed this conditioner, expecially the smell. Usually, products that provide volume dry my hair too much but this wasn't the case. I could see its volumizing effect and still soft and nourished hair. But honestly I think it was a bit …Read more

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Perfect Brow Pencil - Dark Brown

Jul/07/2017

I'm not totally enthusiast of this but still, it's not that bad. Honestly, I expected more from the creator of nowadays inspiration of well-kept eyebrows as a fundamental component of our style.
My favourite part is the tiny brush. It's the only eyebrows brush that ever did something for combing the hair in a proper way. The shape of the pencil itself is undeniably excellent …

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Foundation

Jul/07/2017

At first, I strongly wanted to bash this because the first impression was far from good. But then I luckily tried it under different conditions and now I changed my mind.
I was looking for this for at least a year, but here in Italy it isn't avaiable unless bought online, which is quite difficult when looking for the perfect shade. I didn't want to spend 15 euros for something I …
