My thought:

I love this bronzer! And... While thinking about the pros and cons... I actually discovered that it has no cons! Beside one... The packaging!... This is one of the reason this product is so cheap! After a while (using it every day) it seems like it's breaking! But only in the part that connect the top part with the actual bronzer part. 
But this is the one and only cons! The mirror that it comes with it's amazing! And... Even if cheap... It seems of a good quality!

The product itself is really good! It's not too light or to dark for my skintone (light to medium, with neutral undertone). It gives you a natural color and it's great if you don't like that heavy contour effect!  It lasts almost everyday (but this "power" may variate! It all depends about the foundation you are using!) and... I LOVE IT!



I hope this review helped you! Let me know what you think about it (if you have tried it!)! Since I don't have a lot of makeup products let me know if I should buy some other fantastic products!


XOXO, Fede:)

Long-Lasting Lipstick | Essence Cosmetics

Hello!
I have a review for you! About the long-lasting lipstick from Essence! First thing first I have to say that those lipsticks are REALLY AFFORDABLE! They're like 2/3 euros/dollars/pounds and that allows you to build up your lipstick collection without spend tons of money (great!)!
I have three (I've tried 4 of them! Cause I bought my mum the shade 03! But even thought it's for her... I tried it!) shades of them! BUT, unfortunately, one of them was of a limited edition! But there is a similar color on the permanent collection... And I'm going to tell you what it is later!:)
The colors I have tried are:
03. Dare to Wear: this is the perfect blue-toned red! But this is gonna be discontinued... SADLY!

15. Oh so Matt!: I'm trying to convince myself to buy a nude lipstick and this was an impulse-buy! Cause it's cheap!XD But I actually love this color! It's nude but not so nude!
This is Waka-Waka from one of the past collections! But I think they've replaced this one with another! Anyway... This is a deep fuchsia!
13. Cotton Candy: this is a bright baby-pink! I think it's hard to put on smoothly! But once you have... It looks perfect!

Those lipstick are really creamy and pigmented! The color selection is amazing and you can definitely find the shade you're looking for!
But... I have to warn you... The lighter shades (like "cotton candy" and "oh so matte!") are less smooth than the darker shades and go on a little bit blotchy. What I do for avoid this problem is to really build up the color (till your lips feel bad!) and then blot with a tissue, so the color comes out homogeneously and you are not able to see your lip-color anymore! But I think this is a problem of all the lighter shades lipstick (of almost every brand!)! So for me is not a big deal!
The darker colors are amazing! They goes on smoothly and they do not dry out your lips!
They have a satin finish, but you definitely make it matte by blotting with a tissue and (after) powder your lips! They stay on my lips for almost 5/6 hours without re-touching my lips and, after they start fading, the tint of them stay on your lips (they don't stain your lips, I hope you know what I mean!) and fades lightly as the time goes by!
Btw... I cannot did some lips swatches cause the lighting was really bad!

Let me know what you think about those! I'm excited to know it!:) Cause I love them so much!

That's it for today! Hope you all have a great day!
XOXO, Fede:)

There's something good in everything!

Hi everyone!
Today I wanna talk to you about something that I experienced myself, in the Youtube world.
In the net a lot of people post bad comments, with insults and critics against who posted the video BUT I learned that there are some GREAT people too, in this world!
I was watching a video, yesterday, and I decided to post a REALLY PERSONAL comment... And you know what?? I expected no comments, at all, but some persons wrote me the most sweet and cheering comments in the world! Letting me know that I'm not the only one who's living a situation like this! And tried to help me (even thought they don't even know me!)...


What I'd love to make you understand is that there are a lot of good people in this world, the ones that comment badly, with not-so-nice words, are only a SMALL PORTION compared to all the nice human being existing!
So...  Don't focus your attention on the bad things and on the bad comments... Look at the positive things, the ones that makes you smile and appreciate life!

That's it for today! And I'm so grateful to the girls who commented my post! They made me understand that people, sometimes, are so sweet! You couldn't imagine!
Let me know if you've ever received amazing answers like myself! Thank you for reading this post, I'd love to tell you that you're beautiful, no matter what other people say! You are great! Never stop dreaming and believe in yourself!

XOXO, Fede:)
