Hi girls,

If you would like me to review anything you see, please feel free to request it.

I wrote prices and stores in case anyone is going to Dublin and want to know where to find things straightaway ;)

Just a little side note: I had never been to a MAC counter before, so I don't know, are all shop assistants there incredibly made-up? I mean...everyone had this amazingly dramatic makeup, with uber long false eyelashes. Of course, it was perfectly executed.

Hope that was both enjoyable and useful,



  1. bentornata!
    satin taupe e shale sono due dei miei ombretti preferiti...ottimi acquisti! ma come mai non hai preso nulla di nars? è un brand che a me fa impazzire, peccato che qui non si trovi...

  2. Eh purtroppo la seconda volta che son tornata non sono riuscita a trovare il counter della nars e le mie finanze erano un po' in discesa (ho praticamente speso più per mangiare che per alloggiare).
    Sai com'è, il mio povero Domenico mi aspettava sempre fuori con interminabili sigarette e ne avevo pena per continuare a correre impazzita tra tutti i counter hahah - Benefit e MAC erano più visibili!

  3. PS avevo anche visto la palettina con ombretti, blush e gloss la prima volta. Me tapina, perché non sono stata più egoista? LOL

  4. I love the frill button tunic...me wants xx

  5. ohhhh!! *__*
    adoro primark e credo di adorare anche Penneys!

  6. Welcome back hun! I love everything you bought. The clothes are gorgeous and are right up my street!

    The MUAs in Mac always have always dramatic make up on. I've been in quite a few different Mac stores and it's always the same. They must be told to wear extreme make up for work. Imagine having to put that much make up on everyday, first thing in the morning!

  7. Lyyyyyd! Bentornata! VI siete divertiti allora? Tommy ha cominciato l'asilo e io mi sento tanto sola...fossi lì si potrebbe andare a fare un po' di retail therapy, hai sempre un occhio per le occasioni! Love the MACs, urge (pronuncia italiana!) un EOTD, sono perfetti per i tuoi meravigliosi occhi, xx

  8. @Sarah: They look way better in real life. I'll try to post some OOTD's if I can. My mirror is not really big at all.
    I do imagine that, and I wonder if they ever want to wear makeup outside work that way...LOL

    @Anna: sì, era davvvero bello! Ho messo le foto su fb. Dai che magari se non si ammala tanto puoi ritornare alla scuola privata, così ti senti meno sola! LOL aha magari occhio per gli affari...quando ho pagato il conto di benefit mi son sentita male! Il kit è minuscolo, ma così carinoooo

  9. Belli questi acquisti Lyd. Il kit Benefit è troppo carino e sono proprio curiosa di leggere più in là una review sul pore minimizer.
    Anche i pennelli me gustano, sembrano ok.
    Bentornata. ;)

  10. Bentornata Lydia!
    Acquisti adorabili, mi piacciono moltissimo i gioielli e il mini fae kit della Benefit, mooolto interessante!

  11. Sweetheart I'm making a review to "Realness of concealness" in my spanish blog and i want to use your pictures because my camera is dead! could I use them? please please please! I will link to you and your blog, of course!!
    Please answer me!!
