My definition of Fall in an outfit


I've been wanting to take some pictures for ages, because I really needed them to try and get hired in promotional / hostess agency. But as usual, even tho I love in one of the sunniest city of Europe, once I got both my fancy makeup and outfit on, it started raining, plans needed to be cancelled or whatever. You name it, it probably happened to me. 

Last Saturday it was raining too. But God gifted us with 30 minutes of sun, and my boyfriend took me out of the house and took this pictures for me. Now, I think these are the most gorgeous pictures I got of myself. I'm not the most photogenic person in the world, and for me is really difficult to pose, act, and everything, but the boyfriend makes everything easier. Anyway, here we go! 

And that is it for today! I just wanted to share my excitement for my new pictures with you, but I don't feel like writing or talking too much today so... see you next time! Have a great day & week :)

Unicorns Unite: The brand new lipsticks by Makeup Revolution | Inspired by Unicorns!

Hello everyone! Today I'm here to talk you all about the new lipsticks by Makeup Revolution: the Unicorns Unite collection.

In this collection we find 5 different outstanding shades: Horn of magic, Throne, Legend, Magical & Pink Myth. They're clearly made for those who love unusual lipstick colors such as the ones by Lime Crime, but don't feel like spending more than 15$ in a single lipstick.

However, this cannot be considered straight dupes from Lime Crime, because they all have a metallic / shimmery finish, while Lime Crime lip products are usually about that creamy / super matte finish.

I'm not particularly a fan of metallic / shimmery lipsticks because I find that matte ones fit me the most. However, these were all so pretty and appealing to the eye and so inexpensive (1.45€ each! Plus, I picked the whole pack and it was even cheaper: 5.80€) that I needed to get them.

I feel like these lipsticks are the perfect accesory for Halloween. I'm totally a fan when it comes to Halloween costumes (although my friends won't let me dress up... I just do it for the YouTube :P) and finding something so unusual, pretty and good quality for that little money is insane. Among Makeup Revolution lipsticks collection, you'll find as well others unusual, outstanding yet gorgeous colors, in case these ones are just not for you (or your costume, in case you want them for Halloween!).


In terms of durability, I feel like you won't have to re-apply for a good four / five hours. Different story if you drink / eat, for sure. But what I meant is that they're not that annoying kind of lipstick that fades away after 30 minutes once you apply it. It stays nice in your lips for a long time.

When I was doing the lip swatches for the video, I apply Legend the last one because I wanted to keep it. I film another different video with that lipstick on my lips and finally took it off after 3 hours or so, and it looked just as good as it did when freshly applied.


These are all super creamy and mostourizing. For me I would risk to say that they feel almost like a lip balm in terms of mostour, but with the consistency of a creamy lipstick. Don't know if I'm making sense but that's how I feel about them regarding this category, haha.

When it comes to coverage, it varies from one lipstick to another. I'll say that the most pigmented is Pink Myth, followed by Legend. Magical, Throne & Horn of Magic do not offer full coverage, although Throne kind of merge togethr with the color of my lipst. Anyway, if you put a lip liner underneath, they'll look like a dream.


As I said previously, we find 5 different shades:

Metallic Skyblue

Metallic lilac

Semi metallic lilac / grey

Metallic purple with a hint of blue

Reddish pink with some glitter in it


The packaging is the average packaging of Makeup Revolution lipsticks: the black one with the name of the brand on the lead and the color of the lipstick in the top of the lead. We can find the name of the lipstick on the lead as well, printed in a sticker. I'm sorry for not having taken a picture of this, but I totally forgot and I don't think is exciting enough to go and take the picture now, haha. Anyway, if you want to know what I'm talking about, in the video review that I made, you can see it too.


Ok, sooo... 

  • Do I feel that these lipsticks are worth it?? For that price, absolutely yes. 
  • Am I going to reach for them everyday? Probably not, because I think neutral lipsticks suit me a lot more. But since I got a YouTube channel and also a beauty blog now (:P) I feel like I'll be using them more than the average person. 
  • Do I consider them a must in any makeup collection? Probably not, because the variety of lipsticks you can find on stores nowadays is way too big. But if you like having fun with makeup or you want to make your makeup collection bigger, I'll recommend them with no hesitation. 
  • Would I repurchase them? YES! Because I had so much fun making all the swatches and I think that they're gorgeous for Halloween makeup tutorials or any fun makeup tutorial (such as festival or whatever). 
So that is it for today! I'm going to skip the pros / cons part because I think it'll be redundant. I'll see you next time, which will be pretty soon. Thank you so much for everything!! Love,

DIY Polaroid Costume: Easy & Affordables Halloween Costumes #MyDIYlloween

Heeeello!! It's me again :)

I uploaded my first costume for Halloween 2015 yesterday, and I needed to share it here too.

As usual it's super easy to make and super affordable. I've never seen something like this and the idea just pop up in my mind and I thought it'd be really cool :)

So here you got the stencil to make the pieces of the polaroid: the flash, the bottom, etc. You also have a mini polaroid stencil with all the details and measurements about that part of the costume too. It's in centimiters, so here you have the equivalent to inches, in case that's useful for you:

50 cm: 19.6
40 cm: 15.7
10 cm: 3.9
3 cm: 1.1

Stay tuned for more costumes to come!! I'll keep you posted :)

New-trals VS Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette Review

Heeello!! October has just started and that screams Fall weather to me. In fact, it is the only month that I feel as it is Fall, because during September I am normally crying on my bed over the fact that Summer is coming to an end. Aaand once Halloween it's over, it's Christmas in here, cause I'm that annoying person that fangirls all the time over anything Christmas-related. Anyway, now that October is here, it is time to embrace Fall. I cannot find a better way to embrace Fall to the fullest than the most recent eyeshadow palette by Makeup Revolution. Probably you already know about its existence, but is it the New-trals VS Neutrals a must in your makeup collection? Keep on reading, cause you're about to find out :P

I'm gonna cut to the chase. YES, you ABSOLUTELY need this!! And the reason why is because I'm sure you don't own a palette with such a wide variety of shades that costs you less than 10€. To be exact, I got this babe for 8.49€. That's a steal right there.

Here you can find everything you have in the average neutral palette with some orange and burgundy shades. And it is precisely that 90's vibe what makes this palette absolutely outstanding and awesome.

Sometimes I think that this palette has not the recognition that its deserves - not even remotely! And to be honest, I believe that the reason for that is because it is not a high-end, super expensive palette. Sadly that is how this world works sometimes: if you buy inexpensive makeup, you're not cool enough. But whatever... Let's get into the review part!


These are all the shades you'll find on the palette. You can see their names written in the piece of plastic that covers and protects them (do this thing has a name? cause I can't remember haha). You got some mattes and lots of shimmers. Some of the shimmers are just that, shimmers, and some of them are more on the foil-finish side. I'm not gonna go into detail about each one of the colors because I'm terrible at describing colors, so here you got the swatches. I didn't want to go too harsh with them so you can see the real pigmentation you can get with just one swap.

Top row shades

Bottom row shades
I would say that the pigmentation is amazing. Some colors are more pigmented than others, but they are buildable and if you apply two coats they'll be like BOOM! Right in your face.

I looove shades such as Bias, Personal and Cool to highlight the browbone and I think that Adapt and Trend are perfect as transition shades. Speaking of, that's a downside when it comes to Makeup Revolution palettes for lots of people: some more transition shades are missed in their palettes. For me personally that's not a problem at all, if I don't feel like using Adapt or Trend, I can grab one of my neutral palette and apply any color. I hope I'm making sense, haha.

Regarding my favorite colors, I must admit that I'm absolutely in love with Tone. That burgundy/berry color it's so pigmented and pretty. Vogue, Trend, New-tral and Strong are the other ones that I find absolutely stunning. They're so unique and unusual yet beautiful colors.


Unless you're planning on having your eye makeup on for a week straight, you won't have any issues with this palette regarding durability. 

I went out last Friday with my best friend and tested this baby out for the first time. The pictures you see on this post header show the look I went for, in case you're curious (btw, if you're interested in a tutorial or something, let me know!). Well, after sweating my ass off dancing and everything, I came home and when I looked at my eyes on the elevator mirror my eyelook was surprisingly still there. The eyeshadow were on my eyelids, my creases, my browbones, my inner corners and my bottom lash lines rather than all over my face. And that's the story of how I fell in love with that palette - even more! In that very moment, I knew New-trals vs Neutrals and I would be soulmates till the end of time. 


Front part of the box
The packaging is lovely, just as the rest of the palette. The palette itself comes inside of a cardboard box which displays the name of the palette, the name of the brand and what you'll find inside of the box.

Back part of the box
The actual packaging of the palette looks expensive and professional, as it's displayed on the front part. There's no way you can tell the price of this palette by the packaging. 

There's one thing I found unusual of the packaging of the front part of this palette tho, and it is the matte finish of the material - the rest of the palettes I got from Makeup Revolution are glossy, just as the back part of this one :P 

Front part of the palette
Back part of the palette, featuring myself, my camera and a hair from my dog (yes, the one in the header! :P)
It comes with a brush (I forgot to take a picture of it) and I haven't tested it yet, but from what I've read, it is a good one.


I still have way too much to learn about cosmetics ingredients and all that (not so) fun stuff, but I can clearly read the word PARABEN twice. That is probably my only complaint about this palette, but taking into account the ingredients of some 50$ palettes, let's get it over with. 


Pros: EVERYTHING! Just kidding, but let's me start... 
  •  Price: 8.49€
  • Durability
  • Pigmentation
  • Wide variety of colors: everyday colors & outstanding, stunning shades
  • Packaging: it comes with a brush - not the crappy kind, it's said to be a good one
  • Lacking of transition shades (that's not a con for me, but I know it is for some people)
  • It contains two types of paraben


Is it worth it? YES!! Do you need this palette in your life? ABSOLUTELY! Is this palette a must for every makeup collection? HELL YES! Would I repurchase this palette? Girl, don't ask me twice 'cause I'm about to grab my money and buy myself another one, just in case.

Sooo, that is about it! I hope you enjoyed the review - it's the first of many more to come! I'll see you next time, which will be either tomorrow or the day after, when I finally upload my first Halloween costume of 2015 to my YT channel :P Xoxo,
