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

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!

Kleancolor Femme Lipstick

I'm back! :D I have been home, in Italy, but now I'm back and ready to post again! So... let's start, shall we? 

Spring is here, and my desire for bright colours is growing... to the point that I have been hit by the need to buy lipsticks in strange shades... :)
But there is something that you need to know about all this: I have no desire to pay over twenty dollars for a lipstick in a shade that I'm not sure I can wear for more than a handful of times.
So, basically yeah, I like and I want crazy colours on my lips... but I need to keep myself on the cheap side of the Universe when I buy unnecessary makeup! xD

So what you have here is the first post (in a series to come) about cheap (but hopefully good) options when it comes to buy lipsticks in crazy colours!
And if you want to contribute, let me know the names and your opinions on brands and products of this kind that you may have tried! :)

This time I'm writing about the Kleancolor Femme Lipsticks... in the shades Lady Glory, Golden Rule, Sealed Secret and Ocean Streak.
I bought them for $1.49 each (if I'm not wrong, from Beauty Joint), and the shipping costs were around five dollars for four lipsticks, more or less. Consider that I'm in the UK, and that when I want to buy something coming from America... shipping costs are my bane! -.- Can I say that I hate shipping costs with a passion?! xD


Anyway, let's speak of the lipsticks!

For $1.49 each I was not expecting miracles from the Kleancolor Femme Lipsticks... still I have found that this shades are nice enough! They are overall good if you want to play with strange colours and you can't afford to pay too much for makeup. They do their job.
... You may want to consider that these Kleancolor lipsticks have a strong scent; so you could find this thing a little bothersome, but to me is better than the typical scent of some cheap lipstick. At least here you have a different (but very strong) fragrance! XD
The packaging is nice enough! Very colorful: the colour of the tube matches the one of the lipstick!

- Kleancolor Femme Lipstick in Lady Glory is a silvery shade... that I plan to use alone or on top of other lipsticks to obtain more metallic & shimmery colours.

- Kleancolor Femme Lipstick in Golden Rule is pure and unadulterated gold! Good to wear alone if you like to look like a goddess of gold... xD Or you can always mix it with other shades and play a little bit!

- Kleancolor Femme Lipstick in Sealed Secret is a dark purple/black shade with glitters... I like it, really. I love the idea of it. But somehow I need to apply it more than once to obtain a decent shade. We can say that it's not super uniform... maybe because of the glitters?

- Kleancolor Femme Lipstick in Ocean Streak is a metallic, glittery bright purple. Really nice! Not super uniform when you apply it just once, but still... very, very nice colour!

What can I say? so far so good... I'm planning to buy more shades from this brand, and I'm satisfied with my purchase! :D
I had more than I was expecting!

Definitely recommended if you want to try some crazy colour on your lips without paying a fortune!
