Empties #24 -Throwing out old stuff

Hello beauties, how is everyone doing? I was about to take photos for my usual empties post, when I had the idea to do a little spring cleaning amongst my makeup and throw away some stuff.

Ciao belle, come state? Stavo per fare delle foto per il mio solito post di prodotti finiti quando ho pensato di fare un po’ di pulizia primaverile anche tra i trucchi e di buttare via qualcosina.

Maybelline Fit Me foundation 115 Ivory

I always hear people raving about this, but I didn’t like it for two reasons. First, the consistency is too runny for my taste and second, the shade is too dark for me- Ivory my ass :/

Sento sempre tutte parlare così bene di questo prodotto ma non mi è piaciuto per due ragioni. Primo, è troppo liquido per i miei gusti e due la tonalità è troppo scura – avorio un cacchio :/

bioten cc cream light

Review. It’s my second one and I’ll surely buy it again in the future.

Recensione, è già il secondo che finisco e lo ricomprerò sicuramente in futuro.

Velnea BB Cream nude

It practically has no coverage but I love it! If I’m using a too thick or heavy foundation I mix this in, this also helps greatly to avoid any pimples when I use it inside foundations. Definitely gonna buy this again!

Non copre per niente ma l’adoro! La mescolo con dei fondotinta troppo densi o pesanti e aiuta moltissimo a non far venire i brufoli)o li fa andare via più veloce). La ricompro di sicuro!

Velnea Moisture Care Shampoo

Worked great for my dry hair and scalp, helped to keep my hair moisturized and healthy. Another product I’ll repurchas!

Ha funzionato benissimo per i miei capelli secchi e il cuoio capelluto secco, li ha tenuti idratati e in salute. Un altro prodotto che ricomprerò!

happy foot deo foot cream

Took me two years to finish it, but I did it. I don’t know what to think of it. I’d prefer something more moisturizing.

Ci ho messo due anni a finirlo ma ce l’ho fatta. Non so bene cosa pensarne, penso che preferisco qualcosa di più idratante.

essence camouflage concealer

This little one is almost in every empties post :D What can I say, it works well for me.

Questo piccoletto è quasi in tutti post di prodotti finiti :D Che posso dirvi, funziona bene per me.

ebelin Makeup Sponge

I got these little ones at dm, it’s one of their own brands. They work quite well for concealer but I wouldm’t buy them again just cause I can find something better.

Ho comprato queste spugnette piccole da dm, è una delle marche di dm. Sono abbastanza buoni, le ho usate per il correttore ma non le ricomprerei, si trova di meglio.

Vollarè Egyptian something highlighter

I can’t read anymore what’s on it, but it doesn’t matter cause it’s the wost highlighter ever and it’s going in the trash!

Non riesco più leggere cosa c’è scritto sopra ma non importa perché è il peggior illuminante del mondo e andrà nella spazzatura!

Project professional Tris Ombretti 05 purple

This once had some cute pink colors, I used it a little but mostly they just broke. Bye bye

Questo una volta aveva dei bei ombretti sui toni di rosa, li ho usati un pochino ma si sono rotti. Ciao ciao

essence Oz the Great and Powerful cream blush

This was a present a few years ago when the cream blushes were really in. I never managed to master them and now it’s expired.

Questo era un regalo anni fa quando i blush in crema erano un enorme trend. Io non sono mai riuscita ad usarli ed ora è ormai scaduto.

1.Kiko Luminous Chrome 712 Rosa Confetto

I have rarely used it and it has gone bad :( Swatch

L’ho usato malpena ed è andato anche male :( Swatch

2. Bottega Verde Effetto Diamante Rosa Polvere

It looks used, but I haven’t actually, I don’t remember what I did with it. I don’t like the color at all so it’s time to go bye bye.

Sembra usato ma non lo è in realtà, non mi ricordo cosa ci ho combinato. Il colore non mi piace per niente, è ora di dire addio.

3.Bottega Verde Rossetto Volume – Mattone

Again a lipstick that I don’t like the color of. I’ve been keeping it just in case for long enough.

Un altro rossetto di cui non mi piace il colore. L’ho tenuto abbastanza a lungo giusto per.

4.L’Oreal Glam Shine 206 Sparkling Red

This one has an emotional value, it was a gift for my 18th birthday from my husbands martial arts students. As you can see there’s not too much left, but after 10 years I think it’s time to throw it away…

Questo ha un valore sentimentale, me l’hanno regalato gli studenti di arti marziali di mio marito per il mio 18esimo compleanno. Non c’è molto rimasto ma dopo 10 anni penso sia ora di buttarlo….

Butterfly collection eyeliner

I got this in a beauty store in Veliko Tarnovo and loved its really thin tip, if I ever find this again I’ll repurchase for sure.

L’avevo trovato in un negozio beauty a Veliko Tarnovo, mi è piaciuto molto la sua punta sottilissima. se mai lo ritrovo lo ricompro sicuramente.

MUA Fashionista Secret Gel Eyeliner Fashion Mogul

It was an ok eyeliner, but faded away too quickly.

Era ok ma sbiadiva troppo velocemente.

Glitter eyeliner from Bottega Verde

It wasn’t as pigmented as I’d like, but it was ok to add a little sparkle here or there.

Non era pigmentato quanto avessi voluto ma andava bene per aggiungere un po’ di luccichio qua o là.

CF cosmetics Matitone Ombretto N°32

Too old, I never use it & I think it also made my eyes tear.

Troppo vecchia, non la uso mai e mi sembra che mi faceva pure lacrimare gli occhi.

Layla colour in eyeliner n.13

Same as the other eye pencil.

La stessa cosa dell’altra matita.

Kiko lipglosses

They’re just all expired :(

Sono tutti scaduti

Makeup Revolution Lip Lava Tremor

I loved it, but it just stopped working, nothing comes out. I tried to stuck a needle in to see if it was plugged, I’ve taken it apart but nothing :( And it’s definitely not finished, I didn’t get to use it as much and I have another shade that works perfectly.

L’ho adorato ma ha smesso di funzionare, non esce niente. Ho provato di infilarci un ago per vedere se era bloccato, l’ho anche smontato ma niente :( E non è finito di sicuro, non l’ho ancora usato tanto e ho un altra tonalità che funziona benissimo.

MOTD #76 – Fall-ish & Dark

Heyyyyy :) Today I have a darker fall look for you. I feel like also this look has a bit of grungy and 90s vibe going on like my last look. These colors do not look the best on me, but sometimes you gotta wear colors that don’t suit you just to change it up a little :D

Heyyyy :) Oggi ho per voi un trucco autunnale più dark. Secondo me è un po’ grunge ed ispirato agli anni 90 come il mio ultimo look. Questi colori non mi stanno benissimo ma a volte bisogna indossare anche i colori non ottimi giusto per cambiare un po’ ed esperimentare :D

20161107_122502_hdr

Face: First I used the essence camouflage concealer cream 10 natural beige to cover up my dark eye circles and pimples. Then I mixed flormar Mat Touch foundation M306 with Velnea BB Cream Nude for my base and set it with Malinka Silk effect Compact Powder 02. I contoured with the bronzer from Kiko Light Impulse face palette 01 cool muave contouring and for my blush I used Bombay from Neve cosmetics. To highlight my cheekbones I mixed two flormar Mono Eye Shadows: 1503 Pearly Gold.

Viso: Per primo ho usato il camouflage concealer cream 10 natural beige di essence per coprire le occhiaia e brufoletti. Per la base ho mescolato  flormar Mat Touch foundation M306  con Velnea BB Cream Nude e l’ho fissato con Malinka Silk effect Compact Powder 02. Per il contouring ho usato il bronzer dalla  Kiko Light Impulse face palette 01 cool muave contouring e come blush ho usato Bombay di Neve cosmetics. Per illuminante ho mischiato due ombretti di flormar Mono Eye Shadow 15 & 03 Pearly Gold.

20161107_122424_hdr

Brows. As usual I used my essence lash & brow gel mascara and then filled in with essence eyebrow stylist in 01 natural brunette with a wet angled brush.

Eyes: As a primer I used essence I <3 Stage eyeshadow base. I then applied Neutral & Trend from Makeup Revolution New-Trals vs Neutrals palette. On the lid I applied a dark greenish brown color from bh cosmetis Day & Night palette and then tapped on a bit of the darker green from Kiko Colour Fever 03 Hyperreal Green Wood. In the inner corner I used flormar Mono Eye Shadow 15 and under my lower lashline Trend again. I then did my eyeliner with Butterfly collection eyeliner. I finished off my eyes with a mascara combo: essence Multi-Action volume mascaraessence I <3 Extreme crazy volume mascaraessence Forbidden Volume Rebel false lash mascara topcoat

Sopracciglia: Come al solito ho usato il mio essence lash & brow gel mascara e poi ho disegnato e riempito le mie sopracciglia con essence eyebrow stylist in 01 natural brunette usando un pennello angolato bagnato.

Occhi:. Come primer ho usato essence I <3 Stage eyeshadow base.. Poi ho applicato Neutral & Trend dalla  nella piega  Makeup Revolution New-Trals vs Neutrals palette. Sulla palpebra mobile ho usato un marrone verdastro dalla bh cosmetis Day & Night palette e sopra ho picchiettato un po’ del verde più scuro dalla Kiko Colour Fever 03 Hyperreal Green Wood. Negli angoli interni ho usato flormar Mono Eye Shadow 15 e sotto gli occhi di nuovo il Trend. Poi ho disegnato la linea dell’eyeliner col Butterfly colletion eyeliner. Ed alla fine ho usato la combinazione di tre mascara: essence Multi-Action volume mascaraessence I <3 Extreme crazy volume mascaraessence Forbidden Volume Rebel false lash mascara topcoat.

Lips: On my lips I used  Makeup Revolution I <3 Makeup Lip Geek – Kiss 2 Make Up and tapped on a bit of flormar Mono Eye Shadow 03 Pearly Gold.

Labbra: Sulle labbra ho usato rossetto Makeup Revolution I <3 Makeup Lip Geek – Kiss 2 Make Up e sopra ho picchiettato un pochino di flormar Mono Eye Shadow 03 Pearly Gold.

September’15 Favorites

sept fave 1

Hello loves :) A week ago it was still summer and now we’re full on fall mode! Here are my favorites from September!

sept fave 2

Philips Care CurlControl HP8618 I am so happy for this purchase! Remember how I always whine about how my hair doesn’t hold curls? Well I guess I never tried a decent curling wand before! I’m so glad I can enjoy curls now (if it only stopped raining :D). It takes just a few seconds to heat up, it’s super easy to use and my curls stay all-day and the next day my hair still has a nice wave!

sept fave 7
I’m still perfecting my curling skills, but here’s the result :) In case you’re wondering I only have foundation and brows on

sept fave 4

Herbal Hand Cream The hand cream season has arrived and I’m loving these two. They have a lovely sweet and not too strong scent, not too liquid neither too sticky and leave my hands feeling moisturized.

alverde Cream to Powder Concealer in the shade 10 natural beige. I’m really enjoying this concealer. I’m going to do a review, cause everyone deserves to know about great cruelty free and natural products ^.^ After the flop with alverde false lashes mascara I’m glad to know that this company has also great products ;)

sept fave 3

KIKO Light Impulse Face palette 01 cool muave contouring Haven’t been using this for a while and in September I fell in love again with the blush in this palette. It’s such a nice color for the fall.

sept fave 6
Here’s how the blush looks on :)

sept fave 5

Impala foundation No.1 + Velnea BB cream Nude These two alone are not the greatest product ever, but as a mix I’m loving these! In the Impala Foundation review I said that this foundation has a too thick consistency, which makes it hard to blend and doesn’t let skin to breathe, which causes me to break out if I use it more than two days in the row. Mixing it with Velnea BB cream solves all that, it blends beautifully I have no break out. Even more, when I have a pimple it almost seems like the BB creams helps it to disappear faster! This is an amazing combination, love love love it!

Fake beauty blender I got this cheap ass spongy without having much expectations, but I was positively surprised by it. Definitely going to get another one, when this wears out :)

And for my last favorite – Pachka! She has a great character and she’s very smart (don’t all owners and mothers say this, but I swear she is :D). Here she was waiting for pancakes, she’s obsessed!!!!! I read somewhere that persian cats don’t like bread or pasta and she loves both! :D Also it makes me so happy, that my other cat, Tudor gets along with her :) Actually he doesn’t care, he runs away cause he wants to be left alone, but she keeps following him everywhere and tries to play with him.


Have an unusally pleasant Monday ;)

MOTD #40

Hey there gorgeous peeps ^.^ Over a year ago I didn’t think much about wearing a green eyeshadow, until my dear blogger friend Amy told me to try it out since green is her favorite color, And I’ve been hooked since! I didn’t think green would look good on my green eyes, but I’m in love! You can find a bunch of other green eyeshadow looks on my blog :)

green3

Neve cosmetics mineral eyeshadows are all gorgeous and super pigmented, so is Costa Smeralda! I went with a very thin liner to not to cover all the green part with it. I decided to leave my lower lashline bare and didn’t even add any mascara. I did add some mascara on my eyelid though :D I totally noticed it only when I loaded the pictures in the computer and the editing is not the best with this mini laptop so I just left it like this for all of you to admire. :D
