Sigma Brushes Dupes??!! | Jessup Brushes

Image
Hi everyone!
Today I want to talk to you about one of the best investment of my whole life!
I've stumbled across this brand randomly, while browsing the net, and I saw few videos about those brushes, hearing that they where supposed to be dupes for Sigma brushes which, we have to be honest with ourselves, Sigma increased the prices of their brushes and now they're not so cheap (few years ago they were not so expensive! If you are in the "makeup world" for a while, like me, you'll remember) and even thought the quality is great (or, at least, that's what most beauty gurus say! I've, personally, never tried them!) not everyone has all of that money to spend on makeup brushes!

So... This brush set intrigued me a lot!
I don't have all that money to spend on brushes cause, you know, I have to eat! And, after a while of thinking about, I decided to risk and I've bought the set!

I have to say... THOSE BRUSHES ARE AMAZING!
I was so surprised the first ti…

10 Things Italians are Tired of Hearing | #letsgetreal

Hello!
This is another post of Italian-related things (here's the previous one!), that I'm tired of hearing! I watch a lot of videos on YouTube and when I hear some of those I actually get mad! Just because those are not true!


Pizza: there's no "New York" or "Chicago" pizza-debate in here... Pizza is pizza... Am I right??
Italian language and accent: "God! I didn't know Italian was so similar to Spanish!"... Ehm... Of course! They are both "Romance languages"!! And no... Not all Italians have the accent that Americans usually try to imitate... Cause you know what?? Italy has a lot of different cultures and with those, a lot of different accents! Nutella: not every food is been created by Americans... Nutella at first place... We are actually really proud of it! Pasta with Meatballs: WHAT?? Never eat it! And I think I never will! (oh and even Maccheroni!) Late Dinner: do you actually believe that we eat at 10 p.m.??? First thing firs…

10 Things That Italians Will Never Understand | #letsgetreal

Hello everyone!
Are you someone who watches videos on Youtube but, since you are not American there are some things that you think you'll never understand??? Here you are the perfect post for you!

I think that most of these things could be related to all Europeans, but since I'm Italian, I've thought this title would have been more real like that!
Let me know in the comments if I missed some things! Cause I've had so much fun writing this post (and I'm actually so proud of it!)!
I'm thinking, also, to do some other posts like this! Let me know if you enjoyed it!

"Pumpkin-Spiced" food: Pumpkin Spiced latte, pumpkin spice candy, pumpkin spice creamer... What is that??? We don't even know what the flavour of pumpkin spice is!


Fast Foods: oh there's a McDonald in the nearby... And also Burger King!... But... Like... You have to drive for 20 minutes to get there! Oh wait... There are others type of fast food in the world??? Let's be real..…

Dear Fat People | WHAT??

Hi guys!
Since I've decided to "change" the input of my blog I thought that I should tell my thought about what happens in my life and everything I want to write about!  (and in the comments you can do too!) Today I ran across this video:


I was SPEECHLESS...

... Not because I want to defend "fat" people, just because everybody knows that it's unhealthy beeing fat!...

...BUT... Because of the rudness of this girl!


I mean... Everyone has a different story and that, sometimes, can be related to his/her "health situation"... Beside an unhealthy body could be hidden a HUGE (and maybe DRAMATIC) story... And... Who are we for judging???



Recently something similar has happened with this model (I saw on the social media a lot of bad comments about her!)... And I've found that this was a nice example to talk about!

NOW
Is she pretty?? YES, OF COURSE SHE IS!!!


Do I think she is a good example for the women in general?? YES AND NO...

For people like me,…

What Will I do???

Hi guys,
today I want to talk you about one of the most common questions teenagers and young adults ask themselves almost every day!

You know, I'm 21 and few days ago I was talking with my boyfriend (which is also 21 and in my same situation!) and I realized I actually don't know what I want to do and in my future there's a huge hole that bothers me so much!

I know that I'm young and I still have my whole life ahead but it's hard to know that you don't know what to do WITH YOUR WHOLE LIFE!
I'm a type of person who doesn't like changes and who tries, in every each way, to reach stability in her life.

The world keep pushing us for reaching the top, and adults talk about our future as if it is something "sure"! But we still don't understand them!
I wanna be an architect?? A chef?? Do I want to work?? Do I wanna go to school?? I DON'T KNOW!

It's hard to think about our future right know, and you know why?? We are young!! We still have…

Back to School 101 | #thelazygirlguide

Hi everyone!
Since it's back to school season (sadly) I've thought it would be nice if I share with you some tips that helped me graduating from high-school! For a lot of persons those years could be really hard, but if you take it with the right spirit the time will fly and you'll suddenly miss the high-school days (like I do! Trust me! If you have the right friends and the right classmates, you will have a lot of fun, even during tests!). If you have some insecurities when talking about studying, this is the article for you! Hope you enjoy!



Take your time and don't be afraid: new subjects, new arguments, school means learning, and we all know that! The most important thing is to understand that everyone is different and everyone learn things in different ways and in different time. If you don't understand something immediately, don't panic! Relax and take your time! Even if that means studying a little more than usual! Don't care about others: as I alrea…

Best Way To Clean your Brushes!

Image
Hi everyone!
After a long time and after washing so many times my brushes with different types of product I have discovered the best way to clean them! FINALLY!!

I've tried the dish-soap and oil method that a lot of youtubers do (and appreciate) but it didn't work! Every time I washed my brushes, no matter how much soap (and/or oil) I used, the oily-feeling never went away

SO... I decided to try with the hand soap... It worked, but I still had to rinse almost three times my brushes after cleaning them, cause the soap residue was still there (and I wasted a lot of water! BTW!).
And then it was the time for the soap bar, that worked! But it was a little bit too harsh on them!

I finally discovered the winning method! The homemade soap bar (made with "natural" products)! Actually that soap bar was a gift and I never thought it will work (as soon as I finish the ones that I have I'll definitely made some by myself!)!
BUT... IT'S JUST AMAZING!!!!
Since there are …

Things I'm Obsessed with!

Hello!
Since I've never done a "favorites" post in almost an year, I thought that it was the right time to do one! I must have to say that I do't buy a lot of products, not because I don't like makeup (duh!) but because I have to spend my money on more important things! So... If you're on a budget and you're searching some good drugstore products... This post is made for you! I hope you enjoy it!

NYC Big Bold Bronzing Powder (602, MetropoliTan): This bronzer is just amazing! It's really blendable and it stays on all day long! The number 601(which I'm planning to buy!) seemed more orange and that's why I choose the darker shade! I must say that this one has a red undertone but it'sa nice contouring shade! Since it's not too light you don't have to put on a ton of it! Just build it slowly! BTW... I'm still loving my bronzer in "Sunny"!

Essence All About Matt compact powder : this is the only powder that set my con…

Light-Sweatproof Makeup!

Hi everyone!
Summer means FRIENDS, FUN, SUN... But also SWEAT, HOT AND SUNBURNS! I know, I know... You may see that I don't love summer too much... And IT'S TRUE! I am not a summer person, I LOVE COLD!
I cannot stand the hot weather and that means that as soon as the climate gets hotter the way I see makeup it's totally different than how it was before!
I cannot stand foundations no more and I love lightweight products (and maybe those are products that during the cold months I hate!) and if a product is just a little "heavy" I start hating it!

So... All of this means that I have to change my makeup routine! The less product I use, more I'm happy! And actually... During summer I don't care about people thoughts about my under-eye circles or imperfection!

The first thing I do is to not use my foundation! When it's hot outside this is the first thing that disappear on my face! And why do I have to waste foundation??  It also make me nervous when I wea…
