Rimmel London "Provocalips" Review!

Image
Hi everyone!
Today I have a review for you! Of the brand new (I don't know if it's already available worldwide, but I think so!) Provocalips by Rimmel London!

What Rimmel sais:
Up to 16 Hours of lip liberation. Wild without a trace!
• Kiss proof, transfer proof, food proof high impact endless colour.
• No tight feeling or dry lips. Lips feel smooth and moisturized all day long.
• Easy removal with Oil based makeup remover
STEP 1: Apply colour and keep lips apart for 60 seconds until the product sets.
STEP 2: Apply topcoat to lock the colour, moisture and add shine.

Prices:
US (I didn't found the price! I don't know if it's available in the US territory!)
UK 6.99£
EUR 10.99 €

What I think about it:


This product is just amazing! But it has some pros and some cons! Like almost every product in the worldwide world! They are really longlasting but when you eat/drink it does come off a little bit! The color payoff is really good and it doesn't transfer on the clothes/…

Flu?? Not Today!!

Image
Hello!
Today I would like to talk about cold/flu! And mainly how to "avoid/prevent/fight" them!
During this period it's so hard not to get "something" and, when you get it... It's a disaster! And you wanna only to make it go away!
But! I have some "tricks" that help me feeling better (sooner) and I hope those will, eventually, help you! But I hope you get nothing! Without rambling... Let's go to the post!
Avoid milk: it may seems stupid but, mainly in case of the flu, milk will make the situation worse. This is because it's harder to digest and your body has to work harder for it! It seems difficult even for me (and I'm a "milk in the tea" type of person! Even thought I'm Italian and this is not a "trend" here!) but, when I start to feel that something is wrong, I remove it from my diet.Lemon & Orange are your best friends! You already know it... VITAMIN C IS THE BEST! I put lemon juice on the tea (which I th…

Shut up!

Hello everyone!  I hope your weekend has been great! Today I decided to do this post about the silence! You know, sometimes this could be embarassing or makes you feel free! It all depends! What I really appreciate most is the silence of a person when she has nothing good to say to another person! Do you know what I mean??  I on't like giving bad answers to people who are doing or saying something wrong! Who am I for judging them? I could make the same mistake in the future! Don't you agree?
I don't like offend other people and I think that, with silence instead of bad words, people could really understand what you didn't say! And appreciate you in a good way! Cause you respected them and you didn't make them feel foolish! 
I think that's it! For now! I hope you liked this post! Let me know what you think about it!:)

XOXO, Fede:)

This is your body!

Hello guys!
Today I would love to share my impression with you about the "trend" that is famous worldwide: BIG BOOTIES and THIN WAISTS!
I actually didn't know if I really want to talk about them! Cause, at least, for me, this is a stupid topic! BUT... Maybe it's important because the influence that social media gave us, make us think that WE HAVE TO HAVE A BODY LIKE THAT!
I read a lot of articles that said that "men loves big booties and slim bellies" and some times women believe in those and start some extreme diet (with a lot of exercises, obviously!) for becoming an "ideal woman"! But, when I asked my boyfriend: "hey! Would you like a girlfriend with a body like that?" He said:"Are you kidding me?? That's not pretty at all! And not even sexy!"
So... I think that his answer explain everything!
What really makes me worried is the fact that people start to see this body shape as NORMAL
I'm not talking about women th…

Cold Weather Friendly Products (Drugstore edition)!

Image
Hello everyone!
I hope everything is fine! Today I wanna tell you what my top makeup products (for the colder months) are!
If during the summer I try to avoid products that make me oily (but not so "heavy"
on the skin! Like BB creams or foundations that have matte finish), in the winter I love glowy skin, even because I prefer hydrating products, whose help my skin looking healthier, less dry and less gray (if you know what I mean!) and cause my skin is not so oily during this period.
So... Without further do... Let's get into the real post!
Hydrating foundation (in particular the "FitMe!" by Maybelline New York): I hate this type foundations during summer but, in the winter, I LOVE IT! It's so hydrating and the color matching, for me, it's perfect! It doesn't emphasize the dry patches on my face and it doesn't crease on the fine-lines! Which is also perfect if you have mature skin (my mum loves it too!). I haven't buy it yet, but I need to …

Cakey Foundation?? No Thanks!

Image
Happy MakeupFriday folks!
Today I  decided to write about: FOUNDATION!
I know it might seems stupid, but every time I go somewhere i see girl with cakey foundation, who makes them look older and not so good looking!
I have to admit that, lately, I've been obsessed with skincare and makeup-bases, cause I've understand that those two "things" are the most important steps if you want a good-looking makeup! 
So... I wanna tell you my "secrets" for obtaining a nice base, without looking like mummies!
Without further do... Let's get into it!
MOISTURIZE YOUR FACE: I think I'll never stop saying it! There's no way you can obtain a good looking base without moisturizer! What is more important that moisturize your face? Your under-eye area (and even your eyelid)! If you skip this step... Your concealer will crease no matter what and if you also have dry eyelids your eye makeup will look like crap! WAIT FOR THE MOISTURIZE TO DRY:Wait for almost 15/20 minu…

Happy InspirationalMonday everyone! (and if it's not Monday... I hope this post inspired you too!)
Today I wanna talk you about choices! But in a different way!

Let me explain... I don't wanna tell you what is right or what is wrong! Because who am I for decide for you?? (sometimes I can't even make choices for myself! Like... Ice cream or cake?? Hahaha! I'm joking! Let's get serious!)
I just wanna tell you that you HAVE to choose without listening to people near you!Who could have not a good influence on you! Don't get me wrong! You have to listen who loves you! They will surely help!
But... One person you have o listen surely... Yourself... YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING! 
Nobody could make your choices beside yourself! You are what you lived in the past! You know what is most important for you!
I know that sometimes it's hard... Cause you think you don't believe in yourself, convincing yourself that your choices will be always wrong... BUT IT'S…

Essential Brushes!

Image
Hello guys!
Today I wanna talk to you about... BRUSHES! It's a stupid topics, you may think, but I think is one of the most important!

I recently discover that, even if you have the most beautiful  makeup products, that allows you to have a smooth, flawless finish, you (almost!) need some good tools!

Every makeup brand has his own line of brushes now and they're not so hard to find/buy them anymore!
But! If you're not sure if the quality of them is nice... Do not buy them! You can always find really cheap brushes that have an amazing quality! Like the "Essence" ones!

Now... I tell you what my go-to brushes are!
FOUNDATION BRUSH: I'm not talking about the "cat's tongue" foundation brush! But about a buffing brush! Which could be a kabuki or whatever you want! Make sure it has really dense bristles! It will give you a nice coverage without absorbing too much product! POWDER BRUSH: this is a multi-task brush! You can use it for setting your makeup,…

ONE of Those Days!

Image
Hello!!
Today I wanna talk to you about that period (not THAT period!) when, if everything is right and you have no reason to be sad... But you are!

Everyone seems happy and you are really sad and alone (or, at least, you feel like so!).
I just wanna tell you, even if you're scared, that those feelings are normal! You are not crazy or depressed!
Even if it seems stupid... Everyone lives moments like that!... You only have to let you go... Cry, shout, do whatever makes you feel good!
In a pair of day everything will be normal again and you will be happy! Or... At least... Less sad that how you were before!
I think it's normal having those day. I experienced that they are worse if I don't sleep well (or I sleep less that I should!), if I don't workout (which is good for your body and for your mind) and if I stay a lot of time in front of a computer/phone/tv!
What makes me feel better is, definitely, eating healthy (but you know... Sometimes we NEED chocolate!), working …

Makeup Tips & Tricks!

Image
Hello everyone!
Hope everything is fine! This week I was not so present and I'm really sorry! But... You know those day where you don't even have time to turn on your computer?? My week was full!

But today I have a makeup post for you!
Sometimes the problem of your skin/eyelids can compromise the effects of the makeup items we are  using... Or sometimes we buy the wrong piece of makeup (maybe this?)!
I wanna help you to solve those type of problems! At least... The bigger ones!
Here you are 5 tips that saved my life in the past!
Extremely Oily Skin?? Any foundation seems not working?? Try mattyfing your face with a powder before and after you put your foundation on! Any powder will work! Just use what you have at home! I use the Stay matte powder by Rimmel London (in the shade "transparent")! Or maybeTry with a primer! But they are more expensive that the technique I told you before! And if you're a person who doesn't like an heavy base maybe this is not the…

Love Unconditionally!

Image
Hello everyone!
Today I wanna talk about people that you love! Cause they are one of the most important thing in life!
Everytime you see a friend, or a person you love, you have to show them your love!
Sometimes love is what makes us continue living! And what makes our relationships going on! There's nothing better than feeling loved by someone and... Most of the time... People near you, even when you don't need it, make yourself feel loved too and... It's something amazing!...
But you know what?
There's something that stop us from sharing love! And it's one of that questions: "do they make me feel loved?"
And... If the question is NO we stop show them how much we love them too!
What you have to do is don't think about that! You have to love unconditionally! People with a big heart will ALWAYS be appreciate sooner or later!
So... Don't be afraid and don't look other people before doing thing! Just DO THEM!

This is what I wanna tell you today!…

Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte lipstick | Review

Image
Hello!
Today I decided to publish a review about my go-to lipstick of the fall!
I'm talking about (you already know!) the line of lipsticks that Kate Moss, in collaboration with Rimmel, created!

What Rimmel sais:
Be Iconic - Make the Ordinary Extraordinary Sumptuously Rich Matte Colour with a sublime comfort. Ruby Powder enriched formula. Intense velvet colour all day!

Prices:
US $5.50
UK £5.50
EUR €5/8

What I think about:
Actually I've got only a lipstick of this range! But only because I cannot find the one I would really love to buy! Which is the number 107!
I've got the shade number 104! Which is the perfect "my lips but better" color! I think it's perfect for the actual trend (the Kylie Jenner lips!) mainly because it's not too brown and not too pink (it's a mauve color)! So... I think it's perfect for every skin-tone!
It applies really smoothly on the lips and it has a nice floraly scent (but even fruity! Why I cannot decribe scents?? I…

Strong Personality!

Image
Hello!!!
I hope everything is fine! Today, for InspirationalMonday, I decided to write about something that I lived directly in the past!
I've always had a "strong personality" that allowed me to go through bad periods without being destroyed by what happened but, I have to say, it was never so easy!
What, in life, people appreciate the most, is your personality! Even thought I was a strong person, when I lived a really bad period people who knew who I really was supported me till the end!
Having a strong personality is not a bad thing at all! Is one of the keys that could bring you to succeed!

So... Never change yourself! Appreciate every part of you! Mostly your personality! Because that is what really makes us great and different from all the people "in the crowd"!!

I hope this post will make your day improve!

XOXO, Fede:) 

Accept What It Is!

Image
Hello everyone!

Today I decided to motivate yourself with a quote that, even if it seems stupid, it's really the best!
As you may, or not, know (and if not, read "My History" post) I've done a lot of mistakes! But! The worst thing I've done in my life was beeing afraid of what future wuold bring to me!
Actually... I'm really scared about changes!... But you know what?...
Sometimes you have just to delete your past! Let it go! Because, if not, it will stop you from making big things! Because bad thing that happened in the past are like gost!
So... Even if it's hard... You have to "act" like they're never happened!

This is my advice for today! I hope you like it and found it useful!
I hope you're week will be great! See you on Friday!

XOXO, Fede:)

Beauty things I Suck at TAG!

Image
Hello!Today, cause nobody's perfect, I decided to tell you what are the beauty things I sucks at! They're a lot so let's get started!!
GEL EYELINER... I can't... Just... No... I love gel eyeliner more than pencil and liquid ones! I love the matte finish of it but I always mess up everything!Putting mascara on: there are days that I can't even touch the tube of mascara! I poke my eyes, it gets on my eyelid... Am I the only one that has those days??... Please tell me!!Bronzing my face: I love contouring but every time I try bronzing my face I look like an Umpa-Lumpa. 

Tweezing my eyebrows: I don't know why and how... But an eyebrow looks always different than the other! Blending cream eyeshadow with the fingers: everytime I try to do it I look like a panda! Why am I so retarded?? Wearing bold lips: I start saying that I LOVE bold lips! They are my life! The problem is that I'm not able to line my lips proprley! I look like a clown! That's it for today! I h…

Hello Everyone! I know... It's already Monday... The worst day of the week!... But... I have an inspirational post for you! And I hope this will improve your day!!

Fashion Fall Trends!

Image
Hello!!!
Hope everything is fine!! Today I've got a fashion post for you guys!!
Even thought I'm not a fashion addicted, I don't like going out looking like... A mess!...

Scarves: during the cold months I'm obsessed with them! They change the whole look! Actually I'm obsessed with one scarf in particular!  Blazers: I think they're a must have items! You can look classy with them, but even casual! It all depends in what you put underneath it! I love pairing them with a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans! Classy but not too serious! Don't you agree??
Sweaters: if some years ago I was really into hoodies now I love sweaters!! My favorite is from H&M and it has almost two years! But don't worry! Every year they come back in all Fall/Winter collection! Oh and I'm also really into white/cream colors!


Those are the trends I'm going to be rocking in the Fall! Tellme in the comments what you are going to wear! And... What do you think of mine?? Let me…

School or work? This is the problem!

Image
Hello everyone!
Last month I received a call from a company, where they asked me if I would like to to work with them! In a minute a whole world opened in front of me and I started thinking about the idea to go to work instead of studying! I had to refuse! Because I was already matriculate to the university! But this idea is still "flying" in my head!

After this call I started thinking:" Is it better going to work or continuing studying?"
And that's what I'm asking you today! What do you think about it??


Everyone has his own history and... Who am I for judging or for tell him what to do?? I would only help you to choose, if you don't know what to do.

For me, even if I need money (for buying makeup!), studying is more important! Cause you're building your future! And if it means... MORE MONEY!... It's an awesome thing!! Don't you agree???
But this is only my point of wiew! Let me know what you think about it! Cause this "topic" is r…
