New Beauty Purchases: Collistar

Somehow I never bought anything from Collistar (Italian brand which has lower prices than luxury brands but higher than drugstore), although I did swatch quite a few of their products numerous times. But this week things changed!

I had to buy a new face cream for the BF and, after browsing different options, decided to get the brand’s Daily Protective Supermoisturizer  which also came with a cute mini after shave lotion. He had Clarins and Vichy before that. I hope he will love this one, as well.

Beauty Inspiration: Collistar Italian Beauty AW 2014 Makeup Collection

You know how much I adore  plum/berry lips and nails but seeing that everywhere now  makes me want to wear something different. And when I saw the promo image for the new Collistar campaign I just fell in love with it.

Besides the fact that it is elegant and beautiful,yet simple to re-create, I am sure that it [my love for the collection] has something to do with the fact that it was inspired by Italian beauties.

I have  found a tutorial on Collistar’s channel where you can see all the products in action. And, did I mention that
