7 Deadly Sins of Beauty!

Hello everyone!!! Happy MakeupFriday!!:)
I hope the first part of this week has gone well! And that the rest of it will be even better!:)
Since I discovered a new online-shop  I decided to (finally) buy some new brushes from it... BUT!... I feel guilty for doing it!
So... I decided to do the 7 deadly sins of beauty!... But without rambling... Let's do it!!!:)

What is your most inexpensive beauty item? And your most expensive one?
I've plenty of inexpensive beauty products!  The less expensive is... I think... i don't remember the prices!... Are my Longlasting EyePencil from Essence!... The most expensive... Maybe my Revlon Colorstay foundation!... I know... Is not that expensive but... Hey!! I don't have a lot of money to spend!... I've got also a Gucci perfume!... Which my boyfriend gave me!.. Is the "Flora" one!... But I don't know if it could be considered as a beauty item!:)

What beauty product you have a love/hate relationship?
I feel I've talk about it a million times! With te "FitMe" concealer... I love the finish and the coverage but on me it looks like craps!

What are your most delicious beauty products?
 Actually... My lipsticks!... But the one I Really love wearing is my "Stay Matt lip cream" by Essence! It smells like caramel!! It's so yummy!!:)

What product do you neglect, due to laziness?
Only two words: GEL EYELINER!!... I love gel eyeliners but... They're a mess... At least... For me! Everytime I put on that it's just... A whole mess!!...

What attributes do you find mos attractive in the opposite sex?
I don't know! Maybe the personality! I've always wanted a boyfriend with blue eyes and my actual boyfriend has brown eyes and I don't care about it! So... I don't think physical attributes really matter for me!:) Yes... Definitely the personality! A man has to be funny and makes you laugh!:) But also sweet!:)

What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
Maybe the Clarisonic! But I've done a whole list of makeup products that I would love to have!

Sssooooo!!!:) I hope you liked this post! Let me know what your answers are!! I'm curious!! And honestly... The whole thing beside the 7 deadly sins intrigues me!! I don't know... I'm think about a more serious post about them! What do you think?? Maybe if you have some ideas let me know:)
See you on Monday!!

xoxo, Fede:)

DREAM (Makeup) Wishlist!

Hello folks!:)
In today's post I decided to publish my "secret" wish list of high-end products! I called it dream because I cannot afford this products! But I hope one day I will! Every makeup addict should have those products! But I don't... YET!
Without rambling... Here you are the products!

  1. Clarisonic: I'm trying to clearing up my skin since last year. The Garnier products really make the difference, but I still have imperfections (I don't have giant pimples anymore! Thank God!) and I think that's because I don't deep-clean my skin every day.
    Clarisonic "Aria"

  2. Porefessional, Benefit Cosmetics: I have large pores in my T-zone, everyone is raving about this product... So I would like to try it!
  3. Lorac Pro Palette, by Lorac Cosmetics: I think it's a useful palette. And maybe everything I need! It has eight matte shades and 8 shimmery ones! I think it's perfect! Don't you agree?
    It has the perfect eyeshadows shades... Don't you agree??
  4. MAC Lipsticks: everyone use those lipsticks and I have NONE of them! I know... It's depressing... I think I'll try the matte ones and the amplified (I already choose the colours!)
    MAC Ruby Woo
    MAC, Russian Red
    MAC, Creme Cup
    MAC, Please Me
    MAC, Viva Glam V

  5. Sigma Brushes: everytime I do my makeup I realize that brushes are really important. And if the are of a good quality it's even better!:) No?
    F10 Powder/Blush

    F05 Small Contour

    E25 Blending

    E30 Pencil

    F35 Tapered Highlighter
    F80 Flat Top Kabuki
  6. Naked Palette, by Urban Decay: I was really surprised to see this palette at the number six in this list! I think it's because I love matte eye-makeup and this palette has only three matte shades. The other two "Naked" palettes don't appeal me a lot, maybe because I'm not really into grey and pink eyeshadows.
  7. Supermud™ Clearing Treatment, by Glamglow: this is REALLY expensive! But I've heard that it works so... 
  8. Agave Lip Mask, by Bite Beauty: as a lipstick addicted I learned, mainly in winter, that lipstick looks good only if you have good lips! And this mask may be the solution for my dry-lips during the cold season.
  9. Natural Eyes Palette, by Too Faced: this could be the second palette I'll buy, the color seem gorgeous and I've heard that the pigmentation is amazing! Too Faced has recently re-packaged this palette and added three new shades!
  10. Contour Palette, by Anastasia BeverlyHills: Something like this is not indispensable, but it'll be good to have all the contour shades you need in a single palette! No?:)
     This was my whishlist of HighEnd makeup products!Let me know what products you'd like to receive!!! Maybe we can dream together!:)
    Please follow me I'd really appreciate it (even in other social networks!)!:) 
    Oh and... I try to film 2 videos!... But the quality was... AWFUL.. So... I have to change camera! When the videos are ready I'll definitely start publishing!:) I promise!:)

    XOXO, Fede:)

Be better of yourself!

Happy InspirationalMonday everyone!:)
I hope your weekend has been great! Did you have fun???
Last week I came across this image and I decide to do a post about it... Maybe (surely) everyone knows it, but how many people does what it sais??
Maybe I'm the wrong person to talk about it... And maybe some of you already left this page because "it's stupid"... But I don't care... I talk about it anyway:)
As I grow up I learned something new, but I'm not talking about school oor something related, but about life.
Everyday we do something wrong and we fail (maybe) and the point is try to not do that mistakes anymore! I know it seems stupid, but how many times we did something wrong over and over again and only after a million times we understood that the way we did it was wrong?? This concept is also related to real life. Experiences makes us laugh and cry, we only have to understand how to improve the second one!
This is what inspired me today! I hope it inspire you too! Let me know!:)

I hope you liked this post!:) Follow me if you want!:)
Oh and... As soon as I have everything that I need (a week or two!), I'll start the YouTube cannel!:)

XOXO, Fede:)

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm (review)

Hello everyone!!!!:)
The weekend starts today!! Finally!! And I have a review for you!!:) Aren't you happy???
I'll talk about the Revlon "Colorburst matte balm" and I'll tell you the good things and the bad ones! I hope I'll help you making the hard decision (buying them or not?) since I haven't heard a lot of youtubers properly talking about them. Soooo... Let's go!

What Revlon say:
Vibrant colors infused with a Triple Butter Complex give you a bold, beautiful lip. It’s a burst of matte color with a balm-like feel. Go bold and get moisturized in 10 craveable, collectible shades.
Prices*: US 6.99/12$
              UK 7.99£
              EUR 10/12€ 

What I think:
What Revlon said is true actually! They are really pigmented and matte even if they are called "balms"! The color payoff is good, even thought the color, especially on the bright tone ones (like the number 210, Unapologetic) is uneven (I've to swipe my finger on the lips for make it more even).
Those are the ones that I have, the numbers 205 and 210:)
They have a nice (almost, for me) minty smell, but... It's not so minty!... Like, mint ice-cream! Do you know what I mean?? I hope yes!:) 
There is a great color selection ( you can find every color you need, you would like an orange lipstick?? There's one!) even if the number of shades are not a lot... But you can always mix the colours together!
They are pretty moisturizing, if you don't have lips that dry easily... Like every matte lipstick! 
They last a long time after you apply them (5 hours and even more!).
I love those products! As you may know I'm a lipstick junkie so... I will continue raving about them!!:)

I hope you liked this post and find it interesting!:) Let me know what you thnk about them! And what colors you have!:) 

XOXO, Fede:)  

P.S. I'm thinking about starting a YouTube channel, what do you think about? Please let me know in the comments below I'd really appreciate it!:)

*The prices may variate.

Workout Routine!

Hello folks!
Happy RandomWednesday!
Today I decided to share my workout routine! Cause I think it'd be cool! (Or only stupid??)
Well! First thing first! I workout usually three times a week (on Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and I do it because I noticed that working out helps me to relax afterward and, maybe, loose some weight! The hardest thing of it is to win the fight with the laziness! I learned not to listen myself! because when I ask myself "Hey! Do you wanna go run??" my answer is always "NOOOOO!!" so, what I do, is putting my shoes on and go out! Like there's someone behind who's forcing me!
I start my workout with a run! The time of it may variate (from 15 to 30 minutes) and it also depends in how much I walk instead of run (if I walk more, the time will increase).
 I'm thinking about doing this instead of a run, if the weather is not so good! What do you think?
After a nice run I go home! Where I have "something" that I call gym (there is a yoga mat) and some weights.
The part of my body that I hate the most is my belly! I've tried a lot of exercises for it but those two are the only ones that works!

Alli is a GORGEOUS girl! And those exercise really make you feel your abs!!

Cassey Ho is a certified Pilates and fitness instructor so her advice are "safe"!
I'm also trying to improve my butt! Everytime I watch Instagram pictures I see perfect butts! I want one like them!!!
I also do squats besides this! But not a lot cause my knees aren't so good!!

Now... Legs!!... I don't focus a lot into legs because I've already got muscles (and not a lot of fat), but something that I wanna make disappear are the inner thighs!
 But! If you're looking for a nice leg workout... Here you are!:)

So... Did you enjoy this post! I hope your answers is yes! I hope this help you to find the right workout routine! Do you go to the gym or do it by yourself (like me)??? Let me know!!:) 

XOXO, Fede:)

Makeup "crimes"!

Today I decided to do a post where I tell you all the makeup "habits" (I don't know how to call them! Tell me if they have a specific name! While thinking about the title of this post I was falling in deep depression for not knowing how they are really called!) that make me think "Oh God!... No!..." (does this even happen to you?? I'm strange, I know).
As I was writing this post I noticed that the most important thing, at least for me, is a perfect complexion. This doesn't mean that you have to cover your face with tons of foundations/concealer/correctors, you have to use the least amount of products you can, but in the right way!
After have said that... Here you are the real post!:)
  1. Heavy foundation: as you may know, I love watching beauty videos on youtube but, everytime I see how a "beauty guru" do her base, I cannot stop myself from thinking about how her face looks like in the "real life". Larger pores, fine lines, pimples and blackheads... Nobody's perfect! And all of those imperfections, under a heavy layer of foundation, are even bigger and noticeable! Of course! In front of the camera they look perfect and flawless! But... In the real life... Maybe not so much!
  2. Wrong shade foundation: looking tanned is now a must... But I don't think it's so glamorous have the face lighter/darker of your body... But you know... Everyone can do what he wants.
    Sorry but this was too funny!:) Do you wanna look like Donald???
  3. Foundation not blended down the neck: do I have to explain this point??:)
  4. Heavy contouring/highlighting: now this trend has faded a little but, thanks God, but I remember that, like an year ago, the heavy contouring and highlighting was THE trend! If you know what I mean! Foundation sticks, that were five shades darker than the actual skin tone of the girl, that were use for contouring. Highlighters almost white under the eyes, in the forehead and down the bridge of the nose... Only Kim Kardashian could wear something like that without looking "strange" (Just kidding! I love natural makeup even on her)... No... Please! Do you agree???
  5.  Now-on-trend-eyebrows-style: I don't like at all this style. Who has natural eyebrows that have a straight line in the upper and lower "line"??? I think it looks fake... I love eyebrows that, even if retouched, looks natural. Why you have to change your traits? Tell me if I am the only crazy person in this world that thinks it like so...
  6. Wrong shade of lipliner: ............................... NO!....
After thinking a lot about this topic I realized that everything concerned the eyes never bother me! Eye-makeup represent who we are! You can do what you want with it!:) A classic smokey eye, a colorful makeup or a neutral... Everything is fine!!... Don't you agree???:)
I hope you liked this post!! Comment below if you think this post has been interesting!:) and tell me what you think about it!:) See you on Monday!!:)

XOXO, Fede:)

Never give up!

"I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. "
Michael Jordan

Happy Inspirational Monday everyone!:)
It's Monday...  The hardest day of the week... And I decided to give you some inspiration to make it better!:) 
I think that, sometimes, sport's icons are the best example for our lives. Any sport teach you a lot of important things and, the most important is to TRY, EVEN IF YOU FAIL.
Failing is never a good thing... And I know that feeling of frustration that makes you think "Why have I done it??" and upset you in a really bad way. 
Failing in life is... Normal... And there's no way you can be happy, unless you try till you reach your goal!
It could sound stupid, for someone, but... IT'S NOT!...
You have only to look at the good aspects of the situation... Even if you failed... You still learn how to do it correctly! Isn't it right??
When, in a moment like that, the world seems ending and nothing goes in the right way... You have to remember only one thing...
You are great! You are special! You are strong! YOU CAN DO IT!!
Never listen to people who don't believe in you...

I hope this post inspire you:) Tel me what you think about it in the comments:) I would really appreciate it!:)

XOXO, Fede:)

What Maybelline sais: 

"No more basic lip balm.

I only miss the "grapefruit" one! And the "Mint Fresh" is empty! I use it a lot! Can you see??

For this photo I asked my sister if she could lend me her green one! It's cuter like this!

My Opinion:
First thing first there's an important thing that Maybelline does not say! They have SPF 20!! Which, for products like this, is a MUST!! Second... The packaging is SUPER CUTE!!! And third... I've a different opinion for every type of them!!
*Credits: Vera Ezimora.

Peach kiss:

I love the scent of it, but I hate the finish! It's pretty pearly and, paired with the nude color of it, makes my lips really creepy! I found that this is the less moisturizing of the range!


At first it was pretty moisturizing, but after a few applications made my lips feel dry! I don't know if I've been the only one who has this "feeling"! The scent is pretty citrusy and over-powering and you can really feel that you have it on the lips! I arrived at the point where I could not smell it anymore!

Pink Punch:

This is the first BabyLips I bought! It has a really sweet scent, that reminds me of strawberries and raspberries (mixed all together), and if you don't like those type of scents, maybe you should avoid it. It has a nice pink color and when you apply it you have to be careful, cause it's not so homogeneous. It's really moisturizing and even after a couple of hours I don't feel my lips dry!

 This is one of my absolute favorites! It has a nice, fresh, minty scent, which I love!!:) It even has a tingly sensation when you apply it! And last but not least... It's really moisturizing! I love to use it mainly in the winter, cause it repairs my dry lips! I don't know if it's only an impression of mine... But for me it works really well!:) Do you agree with me??

Cherry Me:
I'm OBSESSED with it!!! Like... Oh God... A lot!!!...
For me is the most moisturizing of the range. If I have to choose between all of them, I'll definitely choose this one! It's great if you don't like lipglosses and lipstick but you wanna some colour on your lips! It give you that "healthy flush" without being to glossy.

SO... I hope you liked this review!!! Thanks for visiting my blog!!:) I really appreciate it!:) Have a nice weekend!!! See you on Monday!!:) Love you!!:)

XOXO, Fede:)

40 Beauty Questions TAG (part 3, Makeup, again!)

  1. Do you use mineral makeup? No:)
  2. What is your favorite lipstick? My favorite lipstick is the Revlon ColorBust Matte Balm in Elusive.Great color, great pigmentation, great longlasting power. PERFECT.
    Is this a good photo???... Probably not...
  3. How about lipgloss? As I already told I'm not a huge fan of lipglosses, I think that on me they don't look good at all! I prefer chap-sticks.
  4. What is your favorite blush to use? My favorite blush to use is by Essence Cosmetics and it's the number 40, "natural beauty". It's the right color for me cause after a few hours after I've applied makeup my skin tends to get red (and it's like I've blush on!) and this color disappear... So my skin doesn't look "strange". It's of a brown/apricot color with a glowy effect (which I love!).
    It's not so browny! It has the color in the upper right angle of the picture!
  5. Do you buy your makeup on eBay? No, mainly because sometimes you can't be sure of the quality of the products.
  6. Do you like drugstore makeup? Yes!! The quality of the drugstore products is amazing!
  7. Do you go to CCO's? No:)
  8. Did you ever consider taking make-up classes? Yes, but after thinking a lot I decided not to take them.
  9. Are you clumsy in putting on makeup? It depends... When I have a bad day... YES!!!
  10. Name a makeup crime that you hate? There are a tons of makeup crimes that I hate! The worst is the dark lipliner (even brown!!) used "around" the lips!! Maybe paired with a light lipstick!! NO!!!! WHY????
  11. Do you like colorful shades of makeup or neutral ones? Definitely neutral! In my eyelids I always wear browny shades! Even blush has to be neutral.
  12. Which celebrity always has great make up? Kendall Jenner. Oh God... She's gorgeous! Her makeup is simple and I love it!!  Everyone is obsessed with her sister, Kylie, but, if I have to be honest, I don't like her face traits. I think Kendall is more "elegant"... If you know what I mean:)
    *Credits: Kendall Jenner, Instagram profile.
  13. If you could leave the house using just one make up item,what would you use? Mascara! It's like a superhero! It saves you in every occasion! I prefer the volumizing mascaras! I love having a lot of lashes! What type do you prefer?
  14. Could you ever leave the house without any makeup on? Oooh yes!!! The times that I go out without makeup are a lot more than the ones I go out with makeup on! A lot!!
  15. Do you think you look good even without any makeup on? Maybe not. But I don't care! I prefer to be comfortable!
  16. In your opinion, what is the best makeup line? Maybelline!!! I love all their products!!! And Revlon. The quality of their products is amazing!
  17. What do you think of Makeup? Makeup is something that has to make you feel good! You don't have to be addicted anyway! The most important thing is, before applying makeup, that you have to feel good with yourself! You are what you are! Makeup cannot change your character!
This is it for this Tag! Finally! I wanna tell you, lastly, that I decided to publish posts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Each day will have a "theme". On Monday I'll publish Tags/random posts, on Wednesday inspirational/lifestyle posts and  on Friday makeup-related ones! Tell me if it could be work! I find that in this way it's everything more interesting!:)
I hope you liked this post! Tell me what your answers could be! I'm curious!:) Thanks for reading my blog! It means a lot to me! And for me you are SPECIAL! LOVE YOU!

XOXO, Fede:)

40 Beauty Questions TAG (part 2, Makeup)

I hope your weekend has been great! I know Monday is hard for everyone but here you are a new post! I hope this help to make your day!:) This is the second part of the 40 Beauty Questions Tag, the third will come on Friday or maybe next Monday:)
  1. What foundation do you use? I finally bought the Revlon ColorStay foundation for combo/oily skin, and it's amazing!! The coverage is medium to full and it's really long-lasting!:) I have it since Sunday, I used it twice already and I understand why people love this foundation! I'll do definitely a post!:)

  2.  How about concealer? I use the FitMe concealer. I have a love & hate relationship with! I've done a blog post on it.

  3. Do you know your undertone color? Yessss!! Neutral!I spent a lot of time trying to understand what it was and when I realized that it was neutral I understand why all the foundations (with warm and cold) looked fine on me!
  4. What do you think of fake eyelashes? I never wear them but I think that in special occasions they can make the difference! Cause with a dark eye makeup the eyes get "lost" and they help you to re-define it.
  5. Did you know that you are suppose to change your mascara every 3 months? Yes! But usually I change mascara every 4/5 months because I use it everyday and I gets dry so I don't think that a month or two makes the difference (right?)
  6. What brand of mascara do you use? I use mainly Maybelline mascaras. They are amazing! Even if they're not waterproof they stay on all day without smudging! Now I'm using the "Big Eyes" mascara, which I have to throw cause it's almost dry!
  7. Sephora or MAC? Sephora!
  8. Do you have a MAC Pro-card? No, I don't:)
  9. What makeup tools do you use in make up application? I use brushes! They give you a natural finish!
  10. Do you use make-up base/primer for the eyes? Yes! Because if not my eyeshadow will crease like there's no tomorrow!
  11. For the face? No! But I REALLY should! I'm thinking about buying the "Baby Skin" from maybelline, a lot of people say that it's a dupe for the "PoreFessional" by Benefit! And it's drugstore! Tell me what you think about if you've tried it! I need suggestions!:)
  12. What is your favorite eyeshadow? Actually... My favorite eyeshadow is a bronzer! The NYC "Sunny" bronzer! I use it in every eye-makeup I do! I also like the ScandalEyes Cream eyeshadow in the number 003,"Bad Girl Bronze", by Rimmel! I have the brown one! It's amazing! You can use it like a base or like a normal eyeshadow. The color is buildable so you can have a nice smokey eye only using this shadow.
  13. Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner? None of them! Gel eyeliner for life!:) But if I had to choose I will definitely choose pencil eyeliner, cause they're easier to apply!:)
  14. How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil? Hahahaha!:) A LOT! The problem is that I always forget to tight line my upper water line so everytime I poke the eye start watering and all the makeup look like a mess!
  15. What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? I think they're a mess... When I use them my face is all glittery! I don't like them at all!

So... I hope you liked this post! Tell me in the comments below what your answers are! And follow me if you want!:) Have a nice (rest of?! It depends where you are!) day!:)
XOXO, Fede:)

PS: I made the photos by myself! Can you see?? They sucks a little bit but I promise you!... They will get better!

FitMe! Concealer (Review)

Hey everyone!
Today I decided to write a review of the "FitMe" concealer, which everybody is raving about! I'll publish the second part of tag on monday, hope you don't mind!:)

I have the shade "Light, 10" and it's a shade lighter that my skintone.

Maybelline sais:

Why You'll Love It It's makeup that doesn’t mess with you.
• No oils, no waxes, no nonsense
• Natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, natural
• Exclusive translucent base and lightweight pigments allow skin's natural highs and lows to show through
• Non-comedogenic, dermatologist-tested, ophthalmologist-tested, fragrance-free
For Best Results Dot concealer onto imperfections or under eyes. Pat with finger to blend."

Prices*: USA $ 6.94
              UK   £ 5.99 
              EUR € 6.50

My Impressions:
With this product I have a love/hate relationship. I'm honest with you.
I love the finish and the coverage: it's not too heavy and it doesn't get cakey, and that's what I'm looking for! The skin is glowy but not oily (even on the T-Zone!) and the result is really natural!It doesn't break me out and it's very lightweight! I apply it with my finger-tips, then I blend everything with with my foundation brush and lastly, before setting with powder, I dab a wet makeup sponge  right on the undereye.
So... Maybelline has right!
BUT!... When I put it on the under-eye... It creases! I can do everything for setting it but there's no way! I don't have oily under-eye at all, they're even dry sometimes! I don't even think it's because of the cream, cause I wait for almost half an hour after I put the cream on, so my skin sets and the foundation and concealer glide on easily! I don't know what to do! This thing makes me angry cause I love the product itself!! I really love it!!
I don't know... Am I the only one that has this problem?? Let me know please cause when I see the creasing I'll become really upset! Eveytime!
At the end, if I had to give a vote to it, I'll choose a B... 
Tell me what you think about it in the comments, please! And tell me if you liked this post!:)
 That's it for today! Follow me if you want!:)

XOXO, Fede:)

*The prices may variate, i take them from the official Maybelline site. The EUR price is an average one (it may variate from nation to nation).
