THESE SHOES WERE (NOT) MADE FOR DANCING IN THE RAIN

THESE SHOES WERE (NOT) MADE FOR DANCING IN THE RAIN


I've told you that I wanted a pair of Anniel in my first weekly pick post and here they are!
They're a great taupe/grey/whatever color and I love them.
They're really comfortable, I walk all day between classes, I run -well, I walk fast- to catch the train on time and they're just perfect for my every day life.

Do you like them?

With love,
S.

LET THE SUNSHINE IN

LET THE SUNSHINE IN

Autumn/Winter is here.
Don't know how you feel about this particular seasons.
I love them.
Summer is great, I love holidays, I love sunbathing.
But, to me, nothing beats having a scarf around your neck, drinking hot chocolate and reading in front of the fireplace.
Back to the post, these two Benefit's products help me to take some light in the dark weather.

SUNDAY, AGAIN. WEEKLY PICK vol. II

SUNDAY, AGAIN. WEEKLY PICK vol. II

Weekly Pick vol. II


My hate for Sundays is getting worse every week.
This week has been quite tough, university is starting to require more time and attention. 
In this  post I'm going to show you my latest desires.

I already own Chanel Illusion d'Ombre in Epatant and I really like it, I'd love to try the other shades.
Too bad they're soo expensive!

CHANEL LES 4 OMBRES- GOLDEN EYES

CHANEL LES 4 OMBRES- GOLDEN EYES
You've already read my bla bla bla about how much I love Chanel's products/packaging.
I feel the very same way about this quad.
But first, here's what Chanel says about their quad:


"One essential compact offers unlimited eye looks, with shade combinations that range from matte to satin to shimmer. Versatile smudge-proof formula can be applied dry for subtle shading, or dampened for more intense colour, all with long-wearing results -- in even extreme climates. Dermatologist tested."


MAKE UP MEMORIES

MAKE UP MEMORIES
When I was a teenager, young, shy and without any kind of self confidence...
Ok let's write this again.
When I was 14, six whole years ago!, I just didn't like myself.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not madly in love with the way I look now.
But years, experiences and a couple of special words helped me to appreciate what I have.
Make up, while not being the most important thing in my life, helps me accept my appearance, highlighting my best features and hiding my flaws.

COLLEGE. YES, IT'S HAPPENING. Two of a kind vol I

COLLEGE. YES, IT'S HAPPENING. Two of a kind vol I

L. and I finally started college.
Sadly, we're not attending the same course, so we can't see each other every day.
And, even worse, we had to face a first-day-of-school by ourselves.
In this post I'm going to tell you how my first day was and L. is going to do the same very soon.
We're starting a new series, along with the Weekly Pick! one, in which we'll talk about the same subject with our different point of views.
Anyway.
The day before my BIG DAY I was a wreck.
In my mind I had huuuge confusion.

What to wear?
Will I make new friends?
Will I find my way in the various classes without getting lost?
Will I like every course I have?
Will I make myself ridiculous in front of everyone, spilling my coffee on my books?
Should I wear lipstick?

LAZY SUNDAY- Weekly pick vol. I

LAZY SUNDAY- Weekly pick vol. I
I don't really like this particular day of the week.
I just can't manage to do all the things I'd like to and I usually end up reading and sleeping
Anyway, today I spent some time on the web, browsing various websites.
And here's the result of those hours, a pointless post.
I'm going to show you what I'd like to buy this winter, things that I've been wanting for ages and things that I've just found.
Enjoy!

MAKE UP AND TRAVELING III

MAKE UP AND TRAVELING III
When traveling, I used to end up with a ridiculous amount of make-up in my hand luggage and I never used even half of it.
In the last year or so, I've started to bring with me beauty kits and my foundation.
This way, I end up with a ridiculous amount of beauty kits.
I'm such a mess.
Anyway, today I'm going to tell you everything about my favorite one.

Her name was Glowla is The perfect kit.
It was one of my brother's numerous  gift (I have the PERFECT brother, I know)
First of all, the name.
It obviously reminds me of The Kink's great song, Lola:

GOOD GIRL&BAD GIRL

GOOD GIRL&BAD GIRL
I'd love to be a bad girl.
Actually I'm not a good girl, either.
I'm something in between.
Anyway, around Christmas, I found at my Sephora my two first Sleek's palette: Good Girl and Bad Girl.

So far, I basically haven't touched the GG but I've used a lot the BG one.
I just don't know how to use all those red and pink on my eyes, I need your advice!

TWEEEEENTY, pt. III
Another great gift I received this month was a selection of the MAC Me Over! LE, gifted by D.
He gave me a few great products, just the one I would've bought for myself.



CHANEL-AQUALUMIERE ISCHIA

CHANEL-AQUALUMIERE ISCHIA

This gorgeous aqualumière was part of a summer Limited Edition in 2009, Cote D'Azur.
Ischia is the only aqualumière I've tried so far but I can say that I really like this kind of product.
Smooth texture, the right amount of sheerneess, easy and fast to apply.
It stands somewhere between a gloss and a lipstick, perfect for those kind of mornings.
The mornings when you didn't hear you're alarm, when you HAD to wash your hair so you're reaaaally late, when you're sad and you need something beautiful to make you smile.
Chanel make up line has just the perfect packaging, elegant and pure.
Anyway, back to Ischia, it's a great pink-mauve color, the "my lips but better shade".

With love,
S.

TWEEEEENTY! pt. 2

TWEEEEENTY! pt. 2







For my birthday, I decided to buy a couple of special things I've seen at Sephora.
First of all theThe Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 15 years anniversary.
I'm totally in love with this set.
I've already tried a couple of Glide-On and when I found this set I just couldn't resist.
Another cute thing I bought is Chanel ILLUSION D’OMBRE in Epatant. 
This product is totally unique, let me know if you'd like to read a single review about it!
Last, but not least, I bought a Sephora nailpolish, Bloody Satin, a dark red with metallic glitter that I totally love.
Let me know if you'd like to read more about any of this products!
With love,
S.

PINK, PURPLE AND LA LA LA

PINK, PURPLE AND LA LA LA







You already know I mainly use neutrals colors.
But sometimes, rarely, I like to play a little.
I've already told you that I've been using some green eye products this summer, today I'm going to talk with you about my fave pink/purple products. 
First of all, My Dark Magic from the MAC Venomous Villain LE.
It's a beautiful duo, with a dark purple and a lighter one on a black base.
I've been using it by itself, is just perfect that way.
Another product I really like is a Shiseido Hydro Power Shadow in Spring Plum, H4.
It has a great texture and it lasts a lot on my lids.
The color is quite special, plum with a green hint, I really like it.
I've been using it as a base or by itself and liked it both ways.
The last product in this post is Togetherness from the In The Groove LE.
It's a great trio, with a light liliac -my favorite color!-, a purple shade and a mid-tone grey.
It's a great combo and I really like it.
Have you tried any of these products?

With love,
S.

MAC- SMOKED RUBY

MAC- SMOKED RUBY
This is the only product I bought from the Semi-Precious collection.
It wasn't the only one I liked but it was basically the last Mineralize Eyeshadow there.
Anyway, I'm so proud of this eyeshadow.





The color is great, a blackened brown with a reddish hint.
I've never seen this kind of color, if you did please tell me!, and I'm totally in love with it.
This product lasts forever on my eyes and that's just great.
I've been using it paired with UDPP or Painterly, black eyeliner and my fave mascara.
It's a great product, something I know I'm going to use forever.
What have you bought from this MAC LE?


With love,
S.

50's GIRLS RELOADED

50's GIRLS RELOADED
I love Essence's limited edition products and the 50's collection was oh so pretty!






I bought two eyeshadows duo out of the three available: 
03 Come on board captain!
02 You're a heartbreaker!
The first one has dark blue shade paired with a light taupe, the second one has a white shimmery shadow and a light grey one.
I also bought the loose powder in the 01 shade - Ahoy!, which I think is the only one available.
I've already tried this product and I'm pretty satisfied with its effect, it gives the skin a nice matt effect and it's super cheap.
I bought one of the nailpolishes, 01 You're a heartbreaker!, that I haven't tried yet and an eyeshadow brush.
Would you like a detailed review on one of these products?
Let me know!

With love,
S.

SOMETIMES I LOVE YOUTUBE

SOMETIMES I LOVE YOUTUBE

Ok, totally random.
I found this video and I loved it.
I made L. watch it and she loved it just as much.
It will make you laugh, smile and cry -if you cry quite easily like me-.
Enjoy!

With love,

MAKE UP AND TRAVELING III

MAKE UP AND TRAVELING III
This product, The Hopeless Romantic by Too Faced was probably one of the best bargain I've ever made.
I bought it at Sephora a couple of years for 10 euro.






I love the packaging and I TOTALLY ADORE the product description made by Too Faced:


"It was all she could do to get through the day without a man's touch. She craved their gentle kisses their firm caresses and the chocolates diamonds and champagne that followed. It was Valentine's Day everyday and this glamour girl knew how to shoot that stupid cupid's arrow straight through any man's heart! A bulls-eye every time and another notch on this Val's bed post."


I used to laugh by myself while doing my make up everytime I read it.
Yes I'm a creep.
Anyway, I've made a quick research and I found some interesting facts about the Quickie Chronicles.
Here's what I found:
" According to Sephora, company founder Jerrod Blandino was inspired by a documentary on 1950's "pin-up" magazines.  Each of these limited-edition palettes (only 7,000 of each are made), has a different story written by Blandino on the back to express the personality of the woman on the front, and by extension, the makeup look the palette colors will provide. "


I love the four eyeshadows in it, a bright pink, a light one, a dark brown and deep gray one.
The glosses are super cute and well pigmented, the blushes have great color.
I don't really like the bronzer and the highlighter but I barely ever use them.
Do you own any of the Quickie Chronicles?


With love,
S.
