♕ Part of my World ♕ Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette ♕
{First Impressions, Swatches, Comparisons}

When NABLA Cosmetics announced they were going to release their first eyeshadow palette, the hype skyrocketed right away in less than a second. Their eyeshadows are always been extremely appreciated by both makeup enthusiasts and pro makeup artists, so no wonder that this palette was such a success! 

The Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette debuted on October 18th and it sold out in just a couple of days - quite a record. It hasn't been restocked yet, and there's not a restock date either - which is the main reason why I didn't post my impressions earlier. I took my time to try each shade - not only on myself, but on other people too. I've used this palette a lot in class and tested it on several skin types and different complexions, so I've quite a clear idea about this palette now ;D

"The Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette is the perfect balance between Fantasy, Elegance and Practicality."

♕ Make Up Look ~ Dark Dreams ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette}

First look using the new Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette by NABLA Cosmetics, which debuted about one month ago (geez, time flies!). I'm working on a detailed first impressions post about this palette - hopefully coming up this week, or next one at the very latest. (I don't usually wait all this time to post an overview, but this time I didn't rush since the palette went sold out in about two days and it hasn't been restocked yet)
Meanwhile, I thought I could post this look I made during the Halloween period, since it features almost all eyeshadows from this palette! ;D

♕ Make Up Look ~ Space Princess ♕

With today's post I'm officially catching up with my pre-ring light looks - so starting from the next post you'll regularly see better quality pictures (and my skin won't look so different anymore every time XD)

I made this look just to try this particular graphic eyeliner - inspired by Laura @theclassicalmua - and of course I couldn't miss the opportunity to use a ton of glitters XD And once I was done, I realized it gave me some kind of space vibes - hence the title :3

♕ Make Up Look ~ Pansy ♕
{Feat. Sugarpill Cosmetics & Glitter Palace}

Second look using my new Sugarpill eyeshadows (I talked about them in this post)! After the previous one - tropical and summery - I decided to make a deeper look using different shades. As you can probably tell by the title, I was inspired by pansies - the black, purple and yellow ones, which are one of my favourite flowers in terms of colours *_*

♕ Make Up Look ~ Tropical Eyes ♕

Now that Halloween is over, it's time for me to get back on track and resume the normal eye looks publication. I'm still a couple of looks behind - but bear with me, we're almost there!

Today's look may feel a little out of place, since it's so tropical while we're here, in the middle of the Autumn, wearing warm and cozy clothes. Mind you, I don't relate my looks to the season, I do wear the brightest shades even in middle winter - and viceversa, I feel comfortable with doing deep, dark looks during summer :D
But I'm wandering off, let's focus back on this makeup. There's a specific reasons why it's so colorful - and it's because this is the very first look I've ever done using Sugarpill's eyeshadows, back in August. Very bright, very summery, with a sprinkle of glitters... Perhaps a little mermaid-ish, too? ♥ The perfect way to inaugurate my newest eyeshadows ;D

♕ Halloween 2017 ♕ The Joker ♕
{Feat. Glitter Palace}

Happy Halloween everyone! :D

Can't believe it's already October 31st, time really flies! Let's celebrate with a themed look - not the spookiest, not the creepiest and probably not the most original... But when I received the Halloween glitter collection by Glitter Palace, I saw that one of them was named after the Joker... And I knew I had to do a reboot look for this Halloween!

This look is very special to me because it's the very first one that 'features' my recent investment - my ring light. Since I've moved, I've been struggling with the lighting - to the point I realized that I had to buy one if I wanted to keep up my work on both this blog and my Instagram page. I definitely can tell the difference, can you as well? :D

♕ Part of my World ~ Sugarpill Cosmetics Eyeshadows ♕

Before leaving for makeup school, I got one of the most amazing present ever: twelve Sugarpill eyeshadows. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been admiring their eyeshadows for ages: they have amazing feedbacks, their price point is good (especially since the pans are so big) and they really look simply stunning. So you can imagine my excitement when I got them! *_* I’ve been playing with them for a while, so this is not going to be just a plain haul post, because I'll be also including my first impressions about these shadows.
