Beauty Review | Makeup Revolution The ONE Blush Sticks

31 October 2014

LISTENS : ♪ OF MONSTERS AND MEN - DIRTY PAWS   







Hi dolls ! I'm back with another Makeup Revolution review ! I was so excited when I received my package I started dancing ! I wanted to try those gorgeous sticks the day they were released. Thank you Makeup Revolution for sending them to me, now here's what I think ! 


First, as usual with Makeup Revolution, the packaging is amazing ! These sticks feel so much more expensive than what they are (5£ each !). I also really love the fact that the matte shades have a matte packaging; it's easier to spot them. The one thing I am not super happy about is that the name of each shade is written on the box only, and not on each stick. This means that I have no choice but keeping the boxes if I don't want to open them all everyday until I find the one I want. 

There is a gorgeous selection of colours for any kind of skin tones from fair to dark. I love the shimmery shades that are very natural and settle. The bold pink colours are gorgeous and so easy to blend. If just like me you applied a bit too much on the first go, just blend with you foundation brush and the result will be super natural. I used the matte Malibu to contour, as you can see on the pictures above, from such a bold colour I ended up with a very light contour, that's how easy they are to blend ! 

The texture is so creamy and gives a natural finish. I love the fact that you can play with so many colours from matte to shimmery. I used them on my lips and eyes as well, the result was moisturising and fairly pigmented. Of course, you will need a brush to apply it on your lips since the sticks are so large. 

I love the fact that you get so much product for such a small price. The NARS ones are worth 39$ each when it's 5£ with Makeup Revolution. The result is natural, easy to blend and the colours are gorgeous. 


In general, I am loving these sticks. From the packaging, the shades to the product itself. It's super cheap but the quality is there. Makeup Revolution keeps surprising me with great quality products for such a small price and it makes me realize that sometimes, we buy expensive products just for the hype, not the quality. Great job again, I'm loving them, I just really miss the names on the actual product, not the box. Other than that, they are awesome ! 

So this is it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed. Let me know if you have some blush sticks from Makeup Revolution or NARS, do you like them ? Which one do you want to try ? I wish you a very good day !




Perfect nude pumps

30 October 2014

LISTENS : ♪ TWO DOOR CINEMA CLUB – SOMETHING GOOD CAN WORK  







Hi beautiful babes ! I have been looking for a perfect pair of nude heels for such a long time ! I wanted a glossy finish like those, with pointy toes and thin heels. You can imagine how excited I was when I saw these ones in Primark for only 12€ ! I love Primark because I can always find my timeless statement pieces for such a small price. Girls in their 20's, 30's or more should have nude pumps like those. They go with everything and they are super chic ! 

This is it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed. Do you already own nude pumps ? Do you were them often ? Let me know ! :)
Have a good day !

Hairband : Primark 1€50



Hi beautiful babes ! I am back with another OOTD. I bought this faux leather skirt in Primark earlier this month and I'm having so much fun styling it ! This is an everyday look that could wear at work or on a night out. The stripes give more edge to the outfit but you can wear a black or all white top instead to tone it down. I added some jewellery to bring back life to my look as well as a red lipstick. If you love monochromatic fashion , adding a colourful lipstick is a great touch of life and fun to your look ! 


This is it for today, I hope you enjoyed ! Don't forget that I have a giveaway going on right now, 3 winners will be able to use coupons on Aliexpress.co.uk ! That's a great opportunity to get some photography gear for less than 50$ don't you think ? 

Have a good day !



Wish List | All Black Warm and comfy for Autumn

28 October 2014

LISTENS : ♪ ARCTIC MONKEYS – MARDY BUM 






Hi dolls ! I know I have a thing about black fashion, all year long, but like anybody else, I tend to wear a lot of black during the colder months. But the great thing about monochromatic fashion is that you can play with textures and cuts. I put this look together thinking how I would dress for a casual day off or College. Simple but put together. 

For this look, I picked this black and fuzzy jumper paired with this gorgeous H&M denim. The cut out pieces add some sexiness to this look. It might sound weird but to me, neck, knees and ankles are great body parts to show off for a bit of subtle sexiness and still look elegant. For more texture, I picked this gorgeous bag that will add some edge to this simple outfit as well as the hat. A fedora hat makes any outfit more stylish to me ! 

I love these Dr Martens look alike shoes. They have some similar ones in Primark for about 15€. Super cheap and comfortable, they are on my wish list ! 

This is it for today, I hope you enjoyed this simple and casual outfit. Let me know what is your go-to casual outfit. Are you going for all black like me ?

Beauty Review | Makeup Revolution Atomic lipsticks

26 October 2014

LISTENS : ♪ FUNERAL SUITS - ALL THOSE FRIENDLY PEOPLE  



One my lips : Make me Tonight


Shop the collection :



Hi dolls ! I am back with another Makeup Revolution review (these guys are spoiling me ! ♥). I received these atomic lipsticks a while ago. I took the time to play with them and now here's what I think ! 

I am not going to lie, from the 5 of them, the only 2 colours I see myself wearing are the red and the brownish purple. I don't like purple and green isn't my thing. But, for the sake of the review I tried them all ! 

What you see on the bullet is pretty much what you are going to get on the lips. They all are fairly pigmented and creamy. The red is simply incredible. So soft on the lips and it actually makes my mouth look bigger and sexier. 

The purple shades and brown can be quite sheer like on the pictures above, so if just like me you love bold lips, I'd recommend using a pencil first. I'm still looking for the perfect brown one. 

Even if the shades are not to my taste, the lipsticks themselves have a great quality for such a small price ! You can get some pretty awesome and unique shades for just a few euros ! I am loving the brown shade that reminds me a lot of Rihanna's new Mac lipsticks ! Also, if you are looking for a classic, timeless red lipstick, I'd recommend this one. It's amazing (especially for such a small price !). 


This is it for today , I hope you guys enjoyed the review ! Thank you Makeup Revolution for sending me these products, as usual, I am super happy with the quality ! 

Let me know what colours from the 5 interest you the most, or if you already own them ? I wish you a very good day. 


Favourite Halloween Movies from the 90's

25 October 2014

LISTENS : ♪ HARRY POTTER THEME SONG  













Hi everyone ! During Halloween and Christmas holidays, I love watching 90's movies. I have so much affection for the ones from that decade. The stories were weird and funny. The costumes and characters were so unique and theatrical. Today I am sharing with you some of my favourite I love watching around Halloween time. 

Harry Potter is from 2000s but I was reading the books as a child and the first movie has that adorable 90's vibe. I can't express how much I love the feeling I get from watching childhood movies. If you were too young in the 90's to watch those, or if you forgot about them, I hope this blog post will help you remember and get the Halloween spirit ! 

So this is it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed. Let me know if you love 90's movies as much as I do or if you are all about 3D ! Have a good day !



Benefit They're Real Mascara VS Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara

24 October 2014

LISTENS :  ♪  G EASY – LET'S GET LOST  







Hi beautiful babes ! I am super excited to review the Benefit mascaras ! I have been using them since 6 to 4 months and I have a lot to say about them so let's get started !


Benefit They're Real : This is one of the most hyped mascara in the industry. I have the sample version but the brush is real size. This mascara is great, my lashes look crazy black and long when I apply it. It tends to be a little harder to remove since it's so pigmented. When I wear it, people often ask me if those are my real lashes, true story ! 

I love how the brush grabs the lashes and extends them. The only problem is that if you get it in your eye, it's going to hurt like a mother since the brush is plastic and super hard. The result is quite dramatic and some of the natural make up girls out there might not like it for a daily routine. Other than that, it's totally worth the price (still quite expensive to me though) and the hype ! 

Benefit Bad Gal : I had this one a few months after the They're Real and when I first used it I didn't really like it for the same reasons why I love it today ! The brush is soft and doesn't grab the lashes, it almost feels like it's not touching at all. The result is extremely natural and now, I am loving it! My lashes look fuller, longer and darker but still very natural. For an everyday make up routine, it's the perfect mascara ! 


I love both mascaras and understand now the hype about them. If I had to repurchase one, it would be the Bad Gal that is perfect my everyday wear. It's important to understand that they are both very different and the results are unique. If you want dramatic lashes, I'd recommend They're Real. For an easy and nude look, Bad Gal is for you. 


This is it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed and found this useful ! Let me know if you already have one of these, if yes, which one and why ?

I wish you a very good day ! x

Trend alert | Roughly cut denim (As seen on Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez)

23 October 2014

LISTENS :  ♪  GAL COSTA – BARATO TOTAL






When I first saw Kim Kardashian in her "all denim" outfit, I loved it. But the perfect touch of style she added to her look was for sure the rough cut on the ankles. Finally a trend that work for petite girls who always have to cut their brand new jeans. Now, you can do it at home and look extra stylish! The secret is to keep the look easy and elegant at the same time. Kim K and Selena Gomez both paired the light denim with nude pumps, the perfect match for casual chic. All you need is a simple tee or denim shirt on top of a minimalist make up you are set. This is the perfect look for a day out shopping, or a date night with friends. You won't look overdressed but still fab !

What I love the most about this trend is that you don't need to spend a lot and you can pretty much recreate the look with what you already have in your closet. I always try to show on the blog that expensive isn't a synonym of stylish. Style is in the details, in the personal touch you add to your outfit. In that case, the simple but awesome rough cut on the jeans !


This is it for today, let me know if you like this trend as much as I do or you like your jeans with a neat cut ?
