As you might already know, I have long, voluminous and frizzy hair, so I'm always on the lookout for new exciting hair products that will make my life easier. I was shopping some weeks ago and I was attracted by this little bottle of hair oil that claimed to be 'extraordinary', so I brought it home with me!
L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil contains 6 different flower oil extracts (which are not specified on the bottle, however I can spot  chamomile, coconut canine rose in the ingredients) and it's supposed to make your hair look and feel silky soft. It can be used  as a treatment before shampoo, before or after styling as a finishing touch. It has a very lightweight feeling and only one pump is enough for my huge mane! 
I like to use it after styling to de-frizz my hair without weighing it or making it greasy. It has a very pleasant smell too which will linger for a while. L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil, however, is a silicone based product so it won't repair your hair if it is damaged - it will only give it the appeareance of being healthy. Thankfully my hair isn't very damaged, but I thought I'd tell you so that you know how this product works.
I would absolutely buy this again as it is so cheap (it's under €10!) and it works beautifully. I would definitely recommend it to any frizzy haired girl out there!

Have you tried L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Oil? What do you think of it?

Kiko #251 Rosa Peonia

Kiko is an Italian make-up brand which is expanding more and more nowadays - I heard they've recently opened their first store in London, but they're still not available in the US. However, they're particularly known for their huge selection of everything, for which they are often compared to MAC, except Kiko is a low cost brand. I've been purchasing from them for years now and I have to say their products are kind of a hit or miss, especially in the nail polish section. The Kiko nail polish #251 Rosa Peonia is a beautiful fuchsia shade with a purply blue reflex running through it. I think it's a dupe for OPI Flashbulb Fuchsia, but I've only seen it in store so I can't compare them! This nail polish doesn't come out completely opaque, and even after two coats you can see your nail peeking through, so I would suggest applying a nude base before it. It has a good staying power; I didn't experiment chipping at all, but after a few days I could notice some tipwear (probably due to the fact that I'm constantly typing on the computer or my phone). My only complaint about Kiko nail polishes is that they take absolutely ages to dry! Have you ever tried them? What do you think about them?


Acqua Di Parma Iris Nobile

Acqua Di Parma's story begins back in 1916, when perfumes were still a luxury item that only the élites could afford. Many things have changed from then, but Acqua Di Parma Iris Nobile fragrance still is the epitome of luxury, elegance and exclusiveness - even after almost 100 years. The blend of bergamot, mandarin and star anise, ylang ylang and, of course, iris, make Acqua Di Parma Iris Nobile a distinctive and timeless scent, great for every season: the perfect sophisticated and feminine perfume for woman.

I have received a L'Oréal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral in a swap a few weeks ago and I've been loving ever since. It's one of those lip products that was released after the Revlon Lip Butters, so it has the same concept behind it: it's a balmy kind of lipstick with a sheer but buildable payoff. The shade I picked out is a natural corally pink with no glitter. It's not as pigmented as a Revlon Lip Butter is - it's more of a coloured lipbalm than a traditional lipstick, however I really like the fact that you can build up the colour depending on what look you want to achieve. The consistency of the L'Oréal Colour Riche Balm is creamy and it's an absolute dream to apply; it glides on perfectly on the lips, it's not heavy or sticky. It has a slight glossy finish which makes your whole face look fresher and younger, in a way. The lasting power is not the best feature of this product because it starts to disappear after a few hours, however I don't mind reapplying it as it's such an easy lipstick to put on! 

I really like this lipstick and I think it'll be great for the upcoming season. I'd definitely try more shades of these if only they were sold in Italy!


Today I want... #17

 photo wish-2_zpse7eaeee8.png

Since I can't experiment with moisturizers or face soaps due to the treatment I'm undergoing, I've been all about finding a good make-up remover. I'm currently using a micellar water by Lycia (I think it's an Italian brand), but I really want to try something more high-end like the Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk. Can't wait to use my current make-up remover up, so that I can purchase this!

This product's description had me at 'light, water-resistant foundation to unify skintone'. Now that Summer is approaching, I prefer to use something lighter than a foundation on my skin, and I would really like to try Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint. I'm not sure if it would work on my oily skin, though. Let me know if one of you has ever tried it!

The star of this wishlist post is Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused. You don't even know how much I crave this! Since I'm kinda broke, I've been slowly saving up money to get this miracle powder, which is not exactly cheap, and Space NK's shipping rates are definitely high, too. I'm determined to get this beauty - you can expect a post about it in the (hopefully near) future!


Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze

I have finally managed to get my hands on Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze, after maybe a year of lusting over it. It's, again, one of those products that are not available where I live - at least, not this shade. We always get the most boring ones! This particular shade of all the Colour Tattoos has been -and still is- raved about by youtubers and beauty bloggers, and I do love me a nice brown eyeshadow. The Maybelline Colour Tattoos are cream eyeshadow which come in little glass pots, and they can be used as a base for powder eyeshadows or by themselves. 
The shade that I have chosen is a really pretty bronzey brown with lots of shimmer. Its consistency is quite nice and smooth, and it's easy to blend. As for its staying power, it doesn't stay on for 24 hours (who wears make-up for 24 hours straight anyway?), but it does stay put indeed! When I first got it, I swatched it on my hand and after a few minutes it was completely set. It took a whole lot of rubbing and dousing the swatch with make-up remover to take it away! It's not as hard to remove it if it's on your eyes, though, especially if it's been a few hours since you put it on.
I like to use this by itself all over the lid and blended into the crease because it's such a pretty shade and I don't want to cover it up with another product. I don't think it's that suitable for daytime wear -if you go to school, at least- because it's very shimmery and maybe it would be better to wear at night. 
It's an absolutely lovely product and I would definitely get more shades of it!
