Lush face masks!

Hello everyone!
I'm back and today I want to tell you my thoughts about the Lush face masks I've tried :D
Lush is one of my favourite brands, I always rely on its skincare and bodycare when necessary and.. I have a slight obsession with it :P
I have tried out 4 of their face masks and generally I have always found them quite effective.
The ones I want to talk to you about are:
- Catastrophe Cosmetic
- Brazened Honey
 I have combination skin and I've used several times Lush masks.
Let's compare them!

 The name is different because I'm in Italy, but don't worry I checked out  the English website :)

Catastrophe Cosmetic promises smooth and soft skin and should refresh your face: it does everything I've just said. I apply this once a week and after that my skin is really smooth. The mask doesn't cause me redness although I have sensitive skin!
The best thing about Catastrophe Cosmetic is that smells like blueberries and that you can rinse it off very very easily: this never happened with other masks! I even use just one hand and in 2 seconds it disappears. Yes!

When I want a deeper treatment, cleansed and purified skin I use Brazened honey. Oh my... This is absolutely amazing, delicate but effective. The smell is not so good, but it's worth the little pain. It does the job really well. To be honest, the only thing I don't like about it is that it's quite drying for me and since I have oily areas this is not ideal.
Anyway, after every tratment I apply a good moisturizer to balance everything :)

Price: 8.75 euros (5.95 £) (6.95$) A jar (75g) lasts me for 5 treatments. Quite good!

Have you already tried them? What do you think?
Do you want me to do the review about the other 2 masks? Tell me in the comments!

Hi Everyone!
I'm back again with another nail of the day! Since you liked it a lot, I thought that I can show you my new choice! 
Here there are some pictures!

 This is Kiko - 338 - 2.90 euros - 14ml

Today I went for another pastel colour! Surprise! :)
Maybe, you don't know this Italian brand, it's quite cheap (but not always so cheap!). I checked out their website and I was shocked and happy at the same time because I didn't know that they sell their products in different countries in Europe! Here you can find the link to their website!
It's a beautiful surprise because I can share with you my thoughts about this brand!

 I really hope you like this post!
What do you think of this brand? Have you already heard about it?
Tell me in the comments!

PS Thank you so much to all of you!

Hello everybody! It's sunday and I don't have nothing to do so I'm going to be blogging all day long and this means that it's time for outfits!!
Yesterday I went out for a walk in the park and now I think that I can show you what I wore!
It was really really hot so I kept everything really 'light' :D

 Here some pics :)

Dress (old) - H&M 19.95 euros

I've bought this bag a few weeks ago in a second hand shop and I picked it up for only 10 euros (bargain!) and it's vintage!!
I really hope you like it! Tell me in the comments what you guys think!

Hello everybody!
The weekend finally has come! This means only a thing to me: treat yourself and go out!
Today I want to show quickly the nail varnish I went for!

The nail varnish is Essence - Marble Mania 04 Peaches - Limited edition
It's a delicate colour which I adore!
I love the Essence brand because it's cheap but has good quality and distributes in Europe and America.

I really hope you are having an amazing weekend!

Benefit Creaseless cream eyeshadow review!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having an amazing summer :)
Today's post is dedicated to one my new favourite products: Benefit has released a new range of cream eyeshadows which have become bestsellers everywhere. They are called Creaseless cream eyeshadow/liner.

I purchased the shade Birthday Suit a few weeks ago. Since I got it, I have been constantly wearing it with any kind of colours to try it and be able to tell you what I think.


It's a strange colour: there is taupe, pink and a little bit of brown. This mix creates a unique shade which matches basically with everything. There are some golden shimmers in it which brighten up the eye area and make you look more awake.

The texture is so smooth ad soft: this makes it so easy to apply and blendable. I apply this eyeshadow with my ring finger, no brushes.

 This is the result with an artificial lighting.

 This is the result with a natural lighting.

This shade lasts on me 6-7 hours without any primer underneath. It's awesome because most of my eyeshadows tend to crease very easily.

I use it both as a base and as an eyeshadow. It intensifies every colour.

Price: 19.50 euros (19$) (14£ from Boots)

Anyway: great product, indeed. Definitely recommended!

PS I've also tried the Urban Decay Primer Potion and both of them do the same job. The only difference between these two products is that the Benefit one comes also in a range of darker colours.

 I hope it's useful for all of you!

What do you think of them? Have you already try them?

I hope you enjoy!

My desire post #1

I'm really excited because suddenly I got an idea: "Why don't I start a 'tradition' in my blog?".
There will be a series of posts with the same title and in each of them I will write and link the product I'm lusting after. I won't put up this kind of post regularly, on exact days, but whenever I fall in love with something.

Today's desire is the Mythic Oil by L'orèal professionnel!

L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil 125ml 

I saw this product for the first time on Estèe's blog (check it out cause it's amazing!) when she talked about haircare: I fell in love with it, she was enthusiastic too! Then, I surfed the net to know something more about this 'mythic' product and everybody seems to be crazy for it. I have damaged hair and I'm trying to repair them since a few months and I can finally see some results now.
I will keep on using good products, and I definitely want to give this oil a go!

I found it here!

What is YOUR desire?


Let's haul!

Here I am!
In this post I want to show you what I picked up at H&M recently.
Unfortunately, there are only a few items, but I'm really excited about them.

The first thing is this orange handbag in fake leather.

 I think it's so pretty! It's quite big but extremely handy. I wear it basically every single day when I want a casual and colorful look. Obviously when I use this bag i don't wear pink, yellow and green too! :P But this gives a touch of colour, which is ideal both for cold and hot seasons.

   As you can see, you can open and close very easily, thanks to this magnet.

   In the front, there is this beautiful golden detail, which makes it look more "vintage" or "worn": I love that!
And the best thing is that it costs only 19.95 euros! Yep!

The second item is this sleeveless white t-shirt.

 Here it is! It's a cute and girly cotton t-shirt. In the front, there are some orange and purple flowers which I love, while on the back it's completely white.

But I think that the most particular thing is this detail on left shoulder. The material is folded and makes this item look a little bit more casual. It cost 9.95 euros!

And last but not least, a big ring!
 This is my little treasure :P I ADORE it.  If I wear this ring, I don't need any other accessory cause it's big, but not heavy. It's the first time I buy a big ring: I'm not used to it! It's cheap as hell: only 2.95 euros!

 I know, there is a different lighting between these 2 pictures: here in Italy the weather changes much more frequently now!

Anyway, the semiprecious stone is turquoise, not light blue as it seems from the first picture! 
I believe that also Forever21 has a similar ring but unfortunately here in Italy we can purchase online only :(
So that's it for this post!I thought that this could be interesting!
I really hope you enjoyed it and you had fun while reading as much as I did making it :)

Do you usually buy big rings? How do you style them? 
Have you purchased something that you loved recently? :)
