Thank you so much to all the brands that spoil me. 


I’ve been sent lots of stuff lately, and I’m super grateful for it, but because it is way more than I can use, I’m going through what I’ve received, and at the end, there is a 2-winner giveaway!

In case you are confused by why I get so much free stuff, is because on top of being a youtuber and blogger, I need to test various products to include in my subscription boxes… so possibly some of the things you see here, will end up in my Spring one.

(sorry about this terrible photo, didn’t realise it was this blurry).


The first package I grabbed is by Fresh, a brand I recently came around and I have to say… I fell in love with it. The attention to detail, packaging, and feel of the overall brand is great.


Every product seems so luxurious, and works so well.

I already have the Rose moisturising cream, but yesterday I applied this lip balm and it is the best thing I’ve ever put on my lips. Seriously.

At night, I tried the clay mask because my skin seemed like it was about to break out, and by the time I removed it, it was so much clearer! Extremely impressed.


Next I’ve opened the box by Pür, which included 2 brushes and 10 shades of foundation (which I won’t need, so you will get them on the giveaway).

I gave a go to the foundation, and I’ve applied it with the bigger brush: I’m a porcelain shade (for reference) and the consistency is much thicker than what I’m used to, but blends very naturally. The coverage is incredible, but the foundation itself really doesn’t seem cakey at all, and stays put really well throughout the day. Plus, it sets fairly quickly to a matte finish. I really like it!


Next up: Blinc. I’ve included their products a few times before, so I already knew I was going to like this stuff.

They sent me eyeliners, an eyeshadow palette with mostly neutral colours (you can never go wrong with that), small makeup brushes, and two mascaras. I tried one of them yesterday and it made my eyelashes look so feathery, and then when I washed it off, it was the strangest thing: it came off rubbery, as if it just peeled off (no pain at all, and left no black residue on my eyes). What is this magic!


Here we have a lot of products from Jouer, I can’t believe how much they sent me!


These are just a few that I’ve opened: the thing I love about the packaging is how they can attach together so that you can make your own kit. Very cool!

And look at those lip-products, all shades that I will definitely wear a lot.


Alright, so here we have Too Faced, the brand with the cutest packagings ever!

When I opened this, the scent was incredible (if you didn’t know, their makeup actually smells and tastes like the names they pick – so the peach ones, taste like peaches, and the chocolate ones, like cocoa powder).

I was never send anything from them before, so I was very pleased with the selection they gifted me.


Onto Hourglass, here is what they sent me. The cover of the packaging is very clean and simple, feels more mature, but the product design is great and the actual pay off is brought to another level. I applied that highlighting blush and it was so intense with just a stroke – insane! I must say, I love everything. That chunky lip pencil is calling my name.


All those sparkles! Stila sent me some great stuff: although I love the lip shades, the eyeshadow palette, and those highlighters, my attention was instantly grabbed by those little sparkly tubes.

I applied one of the shades yesterday, and a different one today. OH MY! Honestly, please grab one for yourself while you can cause they are everything.


Final thing to open up is this super cool box. Are you ready for this?!



Look. at. that.

It was so kind of Make Up For Ever to send me this incredible set of lipsticks. I know it’s so many I could give some away, but it would break my hear to tear apart this beauty so I’m going to keep everything as it is.


Here are a few shades I decided to swatch so you can see the pigmentation, with just one stroke.

I don’t know if you remember, but for years I talked about this one specific nude lipstick which was the only one I wore for the longest time: the lipsticks from this brand are definitely some of the best out there.


The giveaway is now closed, thank you so much to everyone for joining!

As usual, the comments have been selected at random (there were 11 pages of comment, so I selected two numbers with a random generator; from those two pages, there were 50 comments each which I again inserted in a random generator so that a comment could be picked).

Here are the two lucky winners:

    I love your blog posts Marzia 🙂 They always cheer me up! I’ve been reading them really early on a morning recently as I’ve been waking up way before my alarm and not being able to get back to sleep (once I wake up my brain won’t stop thinking about what I have to do when I get to work- I’m a teacher so being super organised is a must!)

    I would love to win the pink set*fingers crossed* xx

    That’s a lot of makeup! I love how much effort makeup companies are spending on packaging now. It really makes a difference to me! By the way I love to watch your YouTube videos at work when it’s super boring. It always lifts my spirits!
