♕ Make Up Look ♕ Fashion Addict ♕

Today's look features the only Makeup Geek Cosmetics' eyeshadow I hadn't tried yet - Fashion Addict, a beautiful matte orchid purple *_* It instantaneously caught my attention while I was first browsing Beauty Bay site, it's a unique shade in my stash as of now. I love it so much already - thus I named this makeup look after it ♥

If you haven't read my Makeup Geek Cosmetics Haul + First Impressions already, you can check it out here! :D

♕ The Mermaid Series ♕ Colours of the Sea ♕

Happy #MermaidMonday everyone! :D

I have another mermaid look for you today - I made it a couple of weeks ago, to try out more of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows I got for my birthday. I chose to use all the blue and green shades I had, and I also tried to use one of the shadows as eyeliner. This look reminds me so much of the sea - and I named it "Colours of the Sea" as a mermaid tribute to Pocahontas' Colors of the Wind song ♥

♕ Part of My World ♕ Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dazzle Liner in Klimt ♕

Today I'm going to talk about a product that I've been using and loving so, so much lately. I used it in almost each and every makeup look I created during the last two months... Please give a round of applause to the Dazzle Liner in Klimt by NABLA Cosmetics - aka my current makeup obsession.

(It usually takes me a long time to write a review. I need to test everything in both summer AND winter time, because my skin changes depending on the temperatures - and so do my needs. But, since this is a limited edition product, by the time I'll be ready to write a full review, it will be most likely gone... But this product really deserves a dedicated post. So I had to find a compromise, and that's where the Part of my World series comes in. I created this series two years, and it's intended to gather all my first impressions regarding a product/collection/etc. I haven't been "using" it in a while actually, but I blew the dust off it recently and I realized it still works for first impressions/preliminary reviews like this one.) 

So without further ado, let's get started! 

"Klimt is a red gold eyeliner, lightly duochrome and extremely pigmented. 
Liquid gold with a chromatic effect in a mirrored texture which enhances the look with bright and sumptuous warm reflections. Ideal to frame the eyes or to create small decorative details, like filigree, which embellish the look by interpreting it in a unique and exclusive way. 
Romantic and iconic as “The Kiss” by Klimt."

♕ #ProdottiPRO(va) 2017 Edition ♕
{Feat. Miki in the Pinkland & A Lost Girl}

After reviewing last year list, is finally time to sit down and list allllll the products we are curious about right now and that we want to try during 2017!

Some history for those of you who don't know this tag yet: years ago Miki created a small tag called "Prodotti PRO(va)", a nice pun that in English could be translated in "Products [I want to] try". About two years ago Misato and I joined Miki and, all together, we expanded the tag to the current length.

This tag consist in listing all the products we want to try during the year; mind you, it's not a mere wishlist, but a well thought-out list of products we are really ready and willing to try during the year.

♕ Part of My World ♕ Makeup Geek Cosmetics ~ Eyeshadow Pans Haul! ♕
{Swatches, Comparisons & First Impressions}

I'm so excited I'm finally able to post this haul! I had to postpone and reschedule it so many times I was seriously loosing hope of ever being able to post it.

This year I was lucky enough to receive ten Makeup Geek Cosmetics eyeshadows as birthday present ♥ I've been willing to try out their shadows from quite some time - so you can imagine how excited I was (and still am) to get all these beauties *___*

♕ Helix Eyeliner ♕

I've just realized that I completely forgot to post this look on here o___O" I was SO sure I posted it - like, weeks ago, right after New Year's Day. Where-was-my-head? D:
Well, at least I noticed in time - poor this look, forgotten in the drafts section -   and I'm going to get back on track this very second!

So, in today's post I'm going to show you my very first attempt at the helix eyeliner technique - which is pretty famous on Instagram, I've seen sooo many different styles and finally I decided to give it a try. This was another good occasion to use Klimt - aka the ever-present-lately Dazzle Liner by NABLA Cosmetics aka my current obsession.

♕ Fairy Queen Make Up #2 ♕
{Inspired by a Sergey/Milk1422 Face Chart}

Hey everyone! I'm currently stuck in bed with a very bad cold, unable to complete the Makeup Geek haul post - I'm quite unlucky with that, am I not? - but thankfully I have a special makeup to show you so... Here it is!

Today I'm going to show you another inspired look - to be more precise, inspired by a face chart made by an amazingly skilled artist on Instagram, Sergey aka @Milk1422. Check him out, you won't regret it, he creates the most stunning and artistic face charts ever.
This particular one gave me fairy vibes - so I considered this look like a 2.0 version of my previous Fairy Queen look... Hence the title ;D
