I love December so much. Not only because there’s Christmas and every one feels festive and happy, but also because my birthday is in December. I mean who doesn’t love their birthday month? I get really excited in December. My birthday comes and i get to celebrate it with all my friends, than there’s Christmas and hopefully some snow maybe? Every year I hope that on Christmas would start snowing but unfortunately where I live that rarely happens. This year, like I said in my previous post, I got to celebrate my birthday in Milan with a bunch of friends including my boyfriend. We chatted, we laughed and I also got some really nice presents. Now, I’m not going to show you every single present that I got because some of them are pretty personal and I want to keep them for myself, but there are a few of them that are beuty related and I thought that you guys would like a little review on them.
So, first thing first, I got from my good friend Federica (shotout to her if she is reading this post 🙂 an amazing lipstick and nail laquer by KIKO. The lipstick is amazing! I am in love with the colour and the formula is amazing. It is not too matte ( I have pretty dry lips and sometimes matte lipsticks tend to really dry them out) and not too shiny either. It is something in between. It feels mosturizing, it’s long lasting and it is vey pigmented as well. What else could you ask for? I have the shade 913 and it’s supposed to be from the new collection I believe (although I could be wrong). The nail laquer is from the velvet satin range and the packaging is absolutely beautiful. It is very delicate and elegant. The colour is a beautiful nude pink and I absolutely love it. It lasts five or six day ( I put a top coat on, but I do it with every nail polish) and it is very easy to apply. Give it a go and let me know what you think.
I know that from the pictures you spotted a little box of chocolates. I’m sorry but I couldn’t resist, I had to put them in this post. These are Lindt Diva truffles and they were (they’re all gone now XD) delicious. These were Champagne and Rose Chocolate truffles and they were covered in edible glitter! How cool? Well done Lindt I am very well impressed! These were kindly gifted to me by my boyfriend’s grandparents and I think that it’s such a nice idea for a gift. I think that you can never go wrong with a box of glittery chocolates around christmas.
Last but definetly not least, I present you in all it’s glory the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette! AAAAAAAAAH Can you hear the angels sing? I mean there are no words. This Palette is absolutely gorgeous. It has nine never-before-seen shades and three exclusives. For a total of 12 beautiful shadows. They range from mattes and satins to sparly shades. These colours are super pigmented and there are so many looks that you can create, all totally perfect for the holidays. It also includes a brush. It is the double-ended Smoky Smudger/ Tapered Crease Brush. I Adore it. Don’t worry because I’m planning on doind a blog post with a few looks that you can create with this palette. I’ll try to put it up as soon as I can 🙂
