NAILBOX UK May 2015 *

Hi Guys! :)
Time to come back to you with a review! I had the great pleasure to receive a surprise from NailBox UK! {Scroll down this post for a lot of pictures; I'm going to tell you what i think of this super lovely box... but pictures can be far more explicative of this amazingness!}

The hot sunny days are on us now: it's time for a colorful manicure, for inspiring shades and nails in the spotlight! With four nail polishes and a professional cuticle pusher and nail cleaner the May NailBox is perfect to give your hands the right look for Spring & Summer.
So let's speak of the four amazing shades, starting with my favourite one:

Status Symbol by Essie!
Everybody knows Essie and the quality of their nail polishes; probably we are speaking of one of my top favourite brands in this field (Essie polishes are DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde free ).
Status Symbol is the perfect, funny hot pink that you must have in your collection for a perfect colorful manicure... it's a shade that inspires positivity, that makes better a grey day!

Another wonderful shade is the 670 Lucky Lilac by Rimmel... incredibly easy to apply. Guys, I swear... I have loved its flatter and wider brush!
I have managed to wear this nail polish in seconds and without mistakes. And it dries fast. Super fast! Only one application and the nail polish is already perfect on your nails... definitely a life saver!
And the colour is so nice! Funny but at the same time very elegant.

The Orly Color Blast Fiery Orange with chunky glitters is a must have for the Summer: while I was wearing it... I imagined to be on a beach, my skin kissed by the sun!
This is definitely the nail polish that I will bring with me in the next holidays (hopefully I'll be really on a beach in my Italy!).
And I can only imagine how well this glittery colour can do on a tanned skin; or everytime you are going to have fun! This is a perfect accessory for any party!

Last but not least I have loved Alex By The Books by Nicole by OPI... a minty green that reminds me of a glass of milk & mint syrup! Green is my favourite colour, the colour that I enjoy in any of its shades! And this pastel green is great for Spring and Summer as well.
I can absolutely imagine to wear this shade in the city, for an elegant occasion. But is so versatile that I can imagine to wear it even in a more fun occasion, again on a beach, for a party and blah blah!

Guys, you know me. I'm not telling nice things just because I have received something for free: you can see the quality here. And the convenience. You can see from the pictures that I'm talking of super lovely shades and you can recognize the quality of these famous Brands.
Give a look HERE for all the different kinds of subscription offered by NailBox UK... I think that their prices are really interesting!

 To conclude... a few explanatory words directly from the NailBox Website:

"

What I can tell is that I had... the best possible experience with this box (and I'm not generally a lover of subscription boxes: this must mean something!).

See you soon! :-*

Neve Cosmetics POP SOCIETY

It is that time of the year again... that time of the year when we have to speak of a new make-up collection by Neve Cosmetics!

If you don't know a thing about it, Neve Cosmetics is an Italian brand, CRUELTY-FREE, with a huge load of products vegetarian and vegan, without parabens, without sulfates, without petroleum derivatives. It's all natural.
Their new collection is called Pop Society and it is inspired by the '80!




Some of my favourite products from the Pop Society Collection are the pencils called "DueBaci" (translated: two kisses in Italian).
These pencils are composed of two parts: lipliner & lipstick, and are wonderful to play with colours.

Below you can see some pictures taken with my horrible phone! xD

Neve Cosmetics DueBaci in Virgin

Neve Cosmetics DueBaci in Money

Neve Cosmetics DueBaci in Power

Neve Cosmetics DueBaci in Material

And speaking of the pink one, "Money"... below are some comparisons:

Dupe for Mac Candy Yum Yum and Viva Glam

As you can see Power by Neve Cosmetics is a nice dupe for Mac Candy Yum Yum...and the liner is quite similar to Viva Glam Miley Cyrus!

What do you think? :D Leave me a comment and let me know your opinions!
And before you go... if you like the idea, I have a new page on FB, and a new account on Tsu! Feel free to join me!! :) And remember to follow my Italian Channel on Youtube and/or my English Channel!

See you later! :)

Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar by Too Faced

Let's speak of one of my favourite eyeshadow palettes of the moment... the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar by Too Faced!
It's a shame that you can't send a scent through Internet, because the very first thing that comes to my mind, speaking of this palette, is the deliciously sweet scent of pure cocoa that this palette gives off every time I open it... *O*
For this reason alone this Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar is a must have for all the chocoholic & makeup-addicted out there!
Obviously there is more: the quality is very good, the colours are all nice and they stay all day... even if some shades have not an intense and full coverage (I'm speaking of shades like pink sugar that works better as a delicate, glittery highlighter and that is a little bit too powdery).
But this is a great palette especially for everyday makeup,  if you like natural colours and you like to be classy and chic, or even sexy.
The price is £36.00 for 16 "antioxidant-rich, cocoa powder-infused matte and shimmer shades of warm caramels, deep mochas, bronzy chocolate hues and a pop of sugared blueberry".
Overall is a super good palette, and I do recommend it especially to those with fair skin and a passion for neutral (but warm) colours (and a passion for chocolate)!

E parliamo di una palette che sto amando, la Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar di Too Faced! Si tratta di una palette dedicata in particolar modo a chi ama i colori neutri ma caldi, e che (secondo me) si adatta specialmente a trucchi eleganti, o anche sexy ma non troppo forti... ma soprattutto, dedicata agli amanti del cioccolato! :D
Infatti la prima cosa da dire è che questi ombretti hanno un odore paradisiaco di cacao, che si sprigiona ogni volta che apro la scatolina! Viene voglia di mangiarli...
La qualità è ottima, il trucco resta al suo posto per tutto il giorno. L'unico difetto è in alcune delle sfumature più chiare che scrivono poco, ad esempio pink sugar... che è meglio utilizzare come illuminante glitterato piuttosto che da solo come ombretto. Alcune sfumature sono anche un pochino polverose, ma nel complesso per me non è un difetto, e comunque i pregi della palette bilanciano perfettamente questi piccoli problemi.
La Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar si fa usare davvero tutti i giorni, dimostrandosi versatile per un numero di look, purchè io non abbia voglia di eccessi!
Contiene 16 ombretti (due dei quali in cialdine più grandi; le informazioni su inci e peso potete trovarle sul sito di Too Faced. Per altro la palette é fabbricata in Italia, come é scritto sulla scatola), il prezzo è circa di £36.00... e sí, la consiglio perchè la ho trovata divertente e piacevole da usare. Una bella scoperta anche perchè sono a dieta e almeno cosí il cioccolato lo uso per truccarmi, dato che non lo posso mangiare!
