Red Cherry • Chloe 01 False Lashes • Review

False lashes can actually make a big difference in any look, from the most natural to be the bolder, and they can even help define the eyes and put a look together without wasting too much time.
When the package containing my Red Cherry false lashes in the style Chloe 01 arrived, I immediately thought that this style was too unrefined and sharp for my tastes. I’m used to wearing a different kind of lash style, like the Red Cherry’s 43 Stevi ones that i literally adore and reviewed here.

I’m actually really enjoying them, because they’re long and voluminous without being extremely dramatic.

Makiash • Volume & Length Mascara • Review

If there’s one step i cannot skip during the application of my make up, that definitely has to be the mascara one!
If brows frame the face, then lashes definitely frame the eyes! As you may have noticed, i’m not the bold lip kind of girl. Without doubts, i highly prefer to impress with the eyes.
I took quite some time to review this product, because mascaras need to be tested in a proper way.

Out Now! • Guide to Marc Jacobs’s Le Marc Creme Red Lipsticks • Spring 2015

Even if I’m the type of girl that usually prefers to make the eyes stand out more than the lips, there’s something magical and sultry about lipsticks that literally enchant me.
I have the classic idea that lips and lipsticks represent women’s beauty in a very elegant and seductive way, timeless, if you let me. Just think about the 20’s, the 30’s, the 40’s, the 50’s, the 60’…lips are iconic.
For this reason, when it comes to lipsticks, I’m very picky and selective. Mine is definitely a personal preference, but i believe that the best lipsticks are the long-lasting and well pigmented ones, creamy enough to provide moisture throughout the wearing time without being glossy or too opaque.

I got the chance to try part of the reds of the new Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Creme lipstick range and i must say that I’m positively impressed, so i wanted to share my opinion with you.

How is the collection composed?
