7 Deadly Sins of Beauty!

Image
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 tal…

DREAM (Makeup) Wishlist!

Image
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!

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.
Porefessional, Benefit Cosmetics: I have large pores in my T-zone, everyone is raving about this product... So I would like to try it! 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?MAC Lipsticks: everyone use those lipsticks and I have NONE of them! I know... It…

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 …

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm (review)

Image
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 mak…

Workout Routine!

Image
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 (t…

Makeup "crimes"!

Image
Hello!!:)
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!:)
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, pimp…

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.…

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

Image
Do you use mineral makeup? No:)What is your favorite lipstick? My favorite lipstick is the Revlon ColorBust Matte Balm in Elusive.Great color, great pigmentation, great longlasting power. PERFECT.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.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!).Do you buy your makeup on eBay? No, mainly because sometimes you can't be sure of the quality of the products.Do you like drugstore makeup? Yes!! The quality of the drugstore products is amazing! Do you go to CCO…
