♕ The Mermaid Series ♕ Mermaid Soul ♕

Another look just in time for #MermaidMonday! Like the previous ones, this features some Makeup Geek Cosmetics eyeshadow too. I used teal and green shades this time, so this makeup is more mermaid-y than ever! And it's also very simple, because I used just three main shadows (plus one as eyeliner). Sometimes less is definitely more ;D

♕ Review ♕ Spectrum Collections ~ The BombShell Brush Set ♕

{Disclaimer: this review features a product I got for free as press sample. I'd like to thank Spectrum Collections for the opportunity, anyway my evaluation policy doesn't change and is always based on real use and in-depth testing of the product(s)}

After about six months of testing, it's now time to review this true mermaid treasure: the BombShell Brush Set by the one and only Spectrum Collections. I already wrote an in-depth preview back on September (here!) with tons of comparisons; today I'm going to tell you my ultimate thoughts about this set, so if you need any comparison just check the preview ♥

♕ Make Up Look ♕ Fashion Addict ♕

Today's look features the only Makeup Geek Cosmetics' eyeshadow I hadn't tried yet - Fashion Addict, a beautiful matte orchid purple *_* It instantaneously caught my attention while I was first browsing Beauty Bay site, it's a unique shade in my stash as of now. I love it so much already - thus I named this makeup look after it ♥

If you haven't read my Makeup Geek Cosmetics Haul + First Impressions already, you can check it out here! :D

♕ The Mermaid Series ♕ Colours of the Sea ♕

Happy #MermaidMonday everyone! :D

I have another mermaid look for you today - I made it a couple of weeks ago, to try out more of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows I got for my birthday. I chose to use all the blue and green shades I had, and I also tried to use one of the shadows as eyeliner. This look reminds me so much of the sea - and I named it "Colours of the Sea" as a mermaid tribute to Pocahontas' Colors of the Wind song ♥

♕ Part of My World ♕ Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dazzle Liner in Klimt ♕

Today I'm going to talk about a product that I've been using and loving so, so much lately. I used it in almost each and every makeup look I created during the last two months... Please give a round of applause to the Dazzle Liner in Klimt by NABLA Cosmetics - aka my current makeup obsession.

(It usually takes me a long time to write a review. I need to test everything in both summer AND winter time, because my skin changes depending on the temperatures - and so do my needs. But, since this is a limited edition product, by the time I'll be ready to write a full review, it will be most likely gone... But this product really deserves a dedicated post. So I had to find a compromise, and that's where the Part of my World series comes in. I created this series two years, and it's intended to gather all my first impressions regarding a product/collection/etc. I haven't been "using" it in a while actually, but I blew the dust off it recently and I realized it still works for first impressions/preliminary reviews like this one.) 

So without further ado, let's get started! 

"Klimt is a red gold eyeliner, lightly duochrome and extremely pigmented. 
Liquid gold with a chromatic effect in a mirrored texture which enhances the look with bright and sumptuous warm reflections. Ideal to frame the eyes or to create small decorative details, like filigree, which embellish the look by interpreting it in a unique and exclusive way. 
Romantic and iconic as “The Kiss” by Klimt."

♕ Tag Prodotti PRO(va) 2017 Edition ♕
{Feat. Miki in the Pinkland & A Lost Girl}

After reviewing last year list, is finally time to sit down and list allllll the products we are curious about right now and that we want to try during 2017!

Some history for those of you who don't know this tag yet: years ago Miki created a small tag called "Prodotti PRO(va)", a nice pun that in English could be translated in "Products [I want to] try". About two years ago Misato and I joined Miki and, all together, we expanded the tag to the current length.

This tag consist in listing all the products we want to try during the year; mind you, it's not a mere wishlist, but a well thought-out list of products we are really ready and willing to try during the year.
