Hello beauties!
How are you doing? I hope you are doing well. The weather here is UNBEARABLE. Everyday is a struggle, trying to find the perfect spot in the shade and not to freak out if the sun is burning us alive.
Anyway, today I am going to talk about my favorite beauty products from Sephora!
As most of you already know, Sephora does not only feature products from different beauty brands, but it features its own make up, skincare, and beauty tools too. So, here's a list of what I am in love with!

1 - LIP STAINS AND LIP TINTS



There's an incredibly wide range of colour choices - in Italy there are just 23 colours, while, in the USA there are 40 - including odd shades like "Sea Mist 30", and "Siren Song 31". Even though I prefer the lip stains, the lip tints are not bad either. Both are affordable, and long lasting (they do tend to fade away a little after meals).

She was being really rude, and I didn't have any clue about the reason why. I thought a lot through the possible reasons, unsuccessfully. "What did I do wrong?"

Hello beauties,
how are you doing? It is already May, and in Turin the weather really sucks... It rains all time and I never get the chance to see a single ray of sun. It puts me in a bad mood, and I feel low in energy. Perhaps I am affected by  the SAD (Seasonal affective disorder) D:?

Anyway, this post isn't about my mood swings, but it's about my current skin treatment for acne. Since July 2016 my face has been covered by a lot of pimples that don't seem to be willing to disappear. So, I got some new products, since the ones that I already had didn't work or just made little or no differences. Finally, I found a great mini kit from Clinique, the "3-Step System" for combination or oily skin type (4).





Basically, the kit is composed of:
1 - a liquid facial soap. It's not drying and it is easy to use. You just apply it on your wet face and massage gently, til it becomes foam. Then, rinse everything off with lukewarm water and pat dry your skin with a towel.…
