New Kiko Cosmetics In My Bag

After coming across Kiko’s City Summer Collection online, I had to go and buy their¬†Kiko Duo Chrome Nail Lacquer in Luxurious Bronze. The effect is pretty amazing!! I’m pretty happy that I purchased it! I also wanted to get some powder, and they have a really nice one, Origami Face Palette in Petal Light. ¬†It comes in five different shades including green and purple to help cover redness. It is a great powder when you need to freshen up your entire face while your out. Then I purchased their primer. I have oily skin so after a couple hours my face gets a bit shiny. And so I bought their Mat Base Corrector Primer that is also very affordable, ‚ā¨8,90!!!! A little goes a long way with this product, the only thing is that you need to apply it to your face evenly in a very quick motion because it instantly dries giving your face a mat effect. Applying foundation over it is flawless!¬† I’m really enjoying this make up brand more and more every time!!! ūüėČ

Hope everyone had a wonderful week!

Lots of hugs and baci, Katica

Mavala | Delicious Colors

The other day I went into Upim where they carry lots of nail polishes. One of my favorite brands is Mavala. I love their little size and how they come in so many colors.

Last month Mavala released their Delicious Colors range for Spring and I came across these sorbet colors at the store. They are each so sweet and fun that even their names are adorable and delicious. I had to buy one, well I wanted to buy all of them, but I just grabbed Candy Floss and I am in Love with this color. This color has definitly added a little sunshine to the Roman life since it has been raining quite a lot these last few days.

Est√©e Lauder Mad Men Collection








I am a huge fan of Est√©e Lauder cosmetics, especially their lipsticks because they are so creamy and pigmented!!!! I happened to be browsing their website today and I came across their Mad Men Collection. I thought to myself…. “Why did I not see this before?” On top of the fact that I Love Est√©e Lauder, I am also a huge fan and in Love with the TV show, Mad Men. ūüėČ

The packaging is really beautiful and definitely honorates the 50’s; a time of pure chic and glamour. I also adore the color of both the blush, Evening Rose, and the lipstick, Cherry. I can not wait to get my hands on these items. It still has not arrived in Italy, but I hope it gets here soon! ūüôā

Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

Sending you all lots of love and baci, Katica
