Worst of Kiko Milano

Worst of Kiko Milano

As much as I love Kiko and their products, like any other brands they have products that I just can’t get behind. Usual disclaimer: if something doesn’t work for me, it doesn’t mean that it can’t for you. There are so many people in the world and we’re all so different, there’s no doubt each of us is going to like different things. The reason I love reading…

Pack with Me: Makeup I’m Taking to New York City

June 17, 2017

Right now I’m packing for my lifelong dream destination: New York. The most important thing for me when I travel is lasting power and quickness. I won’t be spending much time at all doing my makeup, I’d rather go out and explore the city. So, I’m going to take with me the things that I know work for me and allow me to get ready in the least…

Best of Kiko Milano

Kiko was the brand that first introduced me to makeup. The only makeup available to me were a few products from L’Oréal and Maybelline so when the first Kiko store opened a few towns over I lost my mind. I was in the early teenage stages back then, so I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup just yet. So I started going crazy with nail polish… At the time…

In most cases, when I have some money to spend, I usually splurge on makeup. After getting a job offer this month, of course, I started thinking about how many things I could buy with my first paycheck. That is if I actually start anytime soon because paperwork is taking so long. I’ve always had a very casual style, and I never worked in an office before. So I’m…

Where to buy American makeup when you live Europe

I first got into makeup when I was in high school when the first KIKO Milano store opened somewhat close to me. I live in Italy and not even drugstore makeup was reachable nor cheap at the time. I mean, we’re talking 7 years ago, so not that long but apparently wearing makeup was a foreign concept in my country. About 4 years ago I started discovering the whole Instagram…

ColourPop International Haul

Yes, another haul… Oops?! I actually made this purchase a while ago, before both my NYX and Sephora splurges. But it only (finally) arrived last week! The order was placed on March 14th, when the first of their Spring Collection launched. It only took a week to make its way across the ocean, a lot more to get to my house. …

The Cushion Eyeliner by essence Review

April 30, 2017

Last year the makeup industry witnessed the rise of yet another Korean trend: the cushion foundation. Today, most brands have already released their own version of it. Well, it’s not just about foundation anymore because essence now makes a cushion eyeliner. I didn’t even know this was a thing, so I was super intrigued about it. As soon as it appeared on the shelf of my local drugstore, I…

Sephora Haul

Another day, and yet another haul. This season, there have been so many new releases, that it’s been really tough for me to resist. Now, this haul is pretty small, but being Sephora the prices added up rather quickly.…
