So today, as promised, I will show you a few things I bought while I was in Italy! You can also check my London haul I did a year ago if you want to! Now, let’s talk about the products 😉
I didn’t expect to stumble upon a Sephora in Rome, but I did so I bought some benefit products including this eyeliner pen. It takes some time to get used to the design and holding it in your hand because the tip is really different from other pens, but once you are used to it you realise how amazing this pen is. The consistency is something in between a regular eye pencil and a gel liner, and also it is really long-lasting, almost waterproof! It is pretty expensive, but I think it is worth the money.
PS: If you are going to get this product I would highly recommend buying a waterproof eye makeup remover.
I heard so many great things about this mascara, so naturally I decided to try it! First the nice lady in the store offered to put it on herself and when she did I was really impressed with the curl and length of my eyelashes. After that she introduced me with the eyeliner pen I already mentioned and some other benefit products and did a great makeup look on me! So I got both, the mascara and eyeliner! This is the Swarowski edition mascara, but I doubt it is any different form the regular one.
I have to admit that I never heard of Kiko cosmetics before I found myself in one of their stores somewhere in Rome. I instantly fell in love with this lipstick from their Ultra Glossy collection in 819. It was on sale so it was very inexpensive. What I particularly liked about it is that it has SPF 15 and how rehydrating it is.
One of my goals of this trip was to buy a MAC lipstick and I did that! This is one of theirs satin lipstick in VIVA GLAM II, it is a pinky nude shade with a bit of sparkle. It looks great on my lips and with my skin colour and it is pretty long-lasting.
This isn’t something I bought, but I still decided to include it in this haul. The makeup artist in Sephora gave me this as a gift, I don’t really know why but I was very thankful, and then on the cash register the lady gave me a Chanel Chance perfume sample, so all in all I really liked Sephora and people who worked there. Haha! 😉
This bracelet I bought when I was in Pompeii because it was pretty and black. The woman said that the beads are made from Murano glass and volcano rock, this latter I doubt, but it’s still a pretty bracelet.
This was the product that made me really love Kiko cosmetics. It was also on sale for less than 2 € and it is honestly the best nail polish I ever tried. It has beautiful shine with only one coat and it lasts for days once you put it on. I can’t wait to go to Venice to buy dozen polishes from Kiko. I belive this is in the shade 486!
You can’t even imagine my surprise when I saw Yankee candles through a window of a small shop in Orvieto! I immediately got in and bought three candles. First I thought I would keep only one for myself, but then I decided to be a little selfish and I kept two. They smell divine and last longer than any other candle I had.
I was searching for black boots with a small heal so I can have boots I can literally do anything in. These matched my every single desire so I bought them from H&M and they were very affordable. After I wore them for the first time I discovered that they are insanely comfortable.
This black faux leather jacket was a great find in Zara. It doesn’t really photograph well on its own, but I love it. It has zippers on both sleeves and a peplum bottom.
And the best for the end! This navy coat is also from Zara. It is structured so it really makes your waist look amazing, and what I also like was that it can be buttoned on both sides and as far as your neck. Perfect for the colder months.
SO GOOD BYE FOR NOW, MY FRIENDS (if anyone is even reading)
