So I went back to the shopping centre.

And for as little a 14€, I got 6 products!

Let’s start with eyeshadows!

Having oily eyelids, I need something that will stick to them and won’t budge. So I got these two Pupa Made To Last waterproof stick eyeshadows in the shades 014 and 015.

I haven’t played with them yet, but from the swatches in the store, they are gorgeous. And really water resistant.

I also got another eye product. another gel eyeshadow pen, similar to the one in my previous haul.

It’s the PUPA Made To Last eye pencil in 402.

It’s blue with glitter in it and I can’t wait to do a pink eyeshadow look and use this as eyeliner.

It’s going to be magnificent.

Last but not least, for just 1.45€, I got this great Pupa VAMP! Definition Liner in 002 and it’s this amazing bright almost-neon pink and I am in love with it. I wore it the other day above my black eyeliner and it was truly spectacular.



For the great price of 2€, I also got this bright pink matt PUPA nail polish in ……… . I tried it the other day but the weather hasn’t been that great and having such a summer-y colour on my nails didn’t really match the tone of the environment.

Yes, I factor in weather when I choose what nail polish to wear.

And finally, the lipstick!

How could I not get this matt liquid lipstick?! It’s the PUPA I’m Matt lip fluid in the shade 056. It’s a fantastic deep red.

The applicator isn’t that great. Or maybe I’m not used to it because the first time I tried it, it went on horrendously.

But it looks amazing and I can’t wait to wear it more often.

Anger

Lately I’ve been unbelievably angry.

Even the tiniest thing makes me want rip everyone’s head off. My mother was sick for a couple of days and I tried to help her as much as I could. But of course she had to complain about literally everything.

This week I should have gone back to university but I wanted to take another week for myself, relax, get into the mindset of going to Venice almost everyday but people had other plans.

They asked me to do stuff, go outside of the house, go grocery shopping and more. I just wanted to have a nice morning to myself, drown in books and TV shows and not think about the imminent start of the semester.

And yesterday I found out my boss put on the internet a video of me speaking in English and introducing myself. I was literally shaking. Being on camera puts me into a vortex of straight-up misery. It is my actual nightmare and filming it gave me nightmares for days.

Things piled up on top of each other and I will explode in the forseeable future.

I’ll go watch Brooklyn Nine Nine now. It’s the only thing that calms me down.

Judgy people, shopping and rare positivity – Going Shopping part 2

Attention! This post contains swearing and an awful amount of sarcasm!

I haven’t had the best weekend. I know it’s not even over and it’s already shit.

In Friday I went shopping at our usual retail shopping centre and… boy, it was delightful. πŸ™„

I already talked about going shopping with my family and you are probably wondering? Is she a masochist? Does she want to hurt herself?

No. I am simply a cheap person that wants to buy a lot of makeup for the least possible amount of money.

(Mini-haul coming as soon as I can take the pictures!)

Before 3 PM, I had already received 3 comments of my makeup and one about my weight. And this time I didn’t even try anything on!

So yes, I was in an excellent mood. πŸ™„

I’m really sarcastic this evening.

And I don’t care that my makeup was grungy. And it wasn’t that grungy!

Some orang-y and brown eyeshadow and mascara! A bit smudged in the lower lash line and that’s it!

But I was supercool! Just smiled and said: “I like it, so…”. The complete sentence would have been “I like it, so… fuck off πŸ–•”.

I totally kept my cool, even about the weight thing.

Uh! I’ve just remembered! They also said I should renew my wardrobe and dress differently! Silly me! How could I forget this gem!?

Fast-forward to today. Or actually yesterday since it’s already past midnight.

I studied almost all day and I was in a terrible mood. I didn’t have energies, I was sleepy, I didn’t care about anything but most of all… I was angry. Really really pissed.

And I was looking forward to 7 PM, when I get to say a big “fuck you, University, I hate you.”.

I just wanted to catch up on the shows nominated for the Emmys that I haven’t seen. (Post about them coming soon).

But no! I had to write this post of Facebook for the association my family is working with. I hate it so much. I was forced into managing the Facebook page and I truly hate it. Have I said “hate” enough in this post? Yes? Well I hate it.

I don’t get how they managed to reel me into it. And since they are interested in it, they are under the impression that I have to care about it. And I truly don’t. Maybe 5%. Nah. Too much. 3%. 2,5%.

Since I was in a foul mood, my mom said: “come on, cheer up! Why are you pulling that face”

And like every single time she asks I respond: “it’s my face”

But today she went on and said: “you should smile more”

So I laughed and pulled my best and most real fake smile. And today every time she looked at me I put on that smile and let her know I was empty and dying inside.

FUN TIMES! πŸ™„

And I told her! She knew I was faking it and kept laughing, thinking it was a funny joke. Sorry. It wasn’t.

I have all of this repressed anger and a lot of my personality hidden and it is slowly driving me insane. Why can’t I be free, do whatever the fuck I want and not be judged? I know I’m not the most positive person ever, but when you see something you don’t have to immediately point out their vices and voice your judgy opinion. There are people who are different than you, enjoy doing different things than you. Stop criticising them! If you see only the negative aspects of a persone, you don’t have to underline it and point it about. Especially if they are about people! Shut up! It’s not their vices that define them!

I can’t believe how positive I am tonight. I’m probably having a stroke and not realising it.

So to sum up, I got criticised for my makeup, the way I dress; I got body shamed, got asked to smile more and waisted an entire Saturday evening doing shit I don’t care about and absolutely hate.

So yay! Great weekend! I also found out one of my middle school classmate got married today. Surreal! πŸ‘°πŸ»

Tomorrow (well it’s not 00:20 here so technically today) I’ll be studying again. Let’s just hope they will for a hike and leave me here with my pizza and my solitude. πŸ™

Beauty Haul – March 2017

I know, I know…Β  It’s March 5th. But I have bought all of these things in the last couple of days and I made a promise to myself not to spend any more money on stuff I don’t really need.

But I went back to the amazing outlet where I got all my stuff from my previous haul, and I couldn’t pass on the opportunity of a few great deals.

  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara / Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Concealer

img_6389

I love the waterproof version of this mascara but it dries very quickly and I wanted to see if the normal version was just as good. I haven’t tried it yet. I have a few other bottles I have to finish.

I also bought this new concealer in the shade “02 Fair” because the other one I had was 3 to 4 years old and it was disgusting. Really really gross. This one is a little bit too pinky for me, but I’ll have to try it on my face (since in the store I only swatched it on my hand).

  • Rimmel The Only 1 Matte lipstick in 700 / Maybelline 24h Colour Tattoo eyeshadow in Permanent Taupeimg_6386

I have seen a couple of videos on the new products that Rimmel has recently brought and I fell in love with the lipsticks! I have 3 of the red Kate Moss line and I love them! So when I saw they came out with 9 new lipsticks and wanted them all! But let’s be frank: I have enough red lipstick but only one dark nude. And this a light brown-toned nude! I HAD TO HAVE IT!

Speaking of things I wanted to have, I’ve been looking for this eyeshadow for a long time. I wanted a darker base and also an eyeshadow that I can put on on its own.

  • Pupa Denim Jeans in 002 / Pupa Nail Polish in 222

img_6390

I love Pupa’s nail polishes, but they’re so expensive! 5€ per bottle! And in some stores even more! Do they think I have a bottomless bank account?

But with only 3€, I brought them all home with me. I still find the whole “jeans denim” texture fascinating!

  • Garnier Skinactive Pure Active 3 in 1 / Lycia Hair Removal Wax

I love this product from Garnier! It’s a cleanser, a mask and a scrub! What more could you possibly want!? I never used to use facial creams or other products for the skin, but this is amazing. After I take it off, my skin is so clean and soft! I feel so refreshed everytime I use it! Definitely one of my favourite products EVER.

The hair removal wax is also a necessity. I have been grooming my eyebrows for years, never plucking them, almost never touching them but if I don’t get rid of some hair, I’ll start looking like Frida Khalo. I know everybody says you should never do your own eyebrows, but I don’t really trust the ladies at the salon. What if they mess them up? I have wanted to set an appointment for a long time, but never had the courage. So I watched A LOT of Youtube videos and I started fixing them on my own.

Please, pray to the eyebrow Gods that I NEVER mess them up.



As for now, I’m feeling quite satisfied with my make-up collection. There are a lot more things that I want, but I absolutely don’t need them!

Please let me know how I can avoid spending all of my savings!!

I have a few products that I’m getting rid of so maybe I’ll do an Empties post…

Have a nice day!
