Touche Eclat Le Teint, the Slogan Edition: I tried them out and here is the result!

Touche Eclat Le Teint, the Slogan Edition. Have you ever asked yourself what is or are the beauty product(s) you simply couldn’t live without? Which are the absolute essentials in your make up bag? I personally have no doubts about which products are my all time favourites. For me, they are the products that create the base of my make up: products that give me flawless, radiant and smooth skin. No, don’t think this is impossible! Once you know what you want from your foundation, all you have to do is hunt for the perfect base make up.

During my last adventure with YSL beauty in Paris, as I’m sure you will have seen on my Snapchat (irenecolzi), I was lucky enough to try out all the new beauty products from the 2016 YSL make up range, including the gorgeous foundations.

The latest product that I tried (and that you can see me wearing in these photos) is the new Touche Eclat Le Teint, the new foundation by YSL, which promises the same dewy, luminous glow as the Touce Eclat, giving your skin the appearance of having had 8 hours of sleep, thanks to its clever wake-me-up luminous particles. It’s perfect for hiding any imperfections, is long-lasting, has a beautifully light texture, and contains SPF to protect your delicate skin.

Touche Eclat Le Teint, the Slogan Edition: what did I think?

What did I think having tried the new products? I was amazed at what impeccable coverage the foundation gives in such small quantities, and I loved how light and un-cakey it felt and on my skin (and this comes from a girl who is prone to spots, redness and has very sensitive skin). Thanks to it’s golden reflective particles, vitamins and hydrating effect, this foundation really does give your skin the most beautiful, healthy and luminous glow… even if in reality you only had a couple of hours sleep or are mega-stressed by daily life!

The finishing touch is a little bit of Touche Eclat Slogan edition, the new “magic pen” by YSL beauty that highlights and brightens the strategic points of your face, along with a touch of rock and roll with the phrase that comes with it. My favourite slogan is “No Need to sleep!”, which I say often! What about you? What sort of woman are you? Apply the Touche Eclat under the arch of your eyebrow, down the sides and corners of your nose, above your upper lip, on dark under-eye circles and on your cheekbones for a super easy contouring effect! Radiant skin even if you’ve had no sleep! Here are all the photos, what do you think of the result?

Natural-looking nude make up: Sephora kindly gave me a wonderful free makeover that took just 15 minutes!

Natural-looking nude make up: Sephora kindly gave me a wonderful free makeover that took just 15 minutes!

Nude make up. Have you discovered NUDE make up yet? It’s essentially very natural-looking make up, that looks almost invisible but enhances the features of your face and compliments your natural skin tone without weighing your skin down with heavy products. It’s a very sophisticated and elegant kind of make up that’s perfect for wearing in the day or for when you wan to look well-rested and have bright, perky skin. It’s also a great, luminous look for evening. I had the pleasure of trying out this gorgeous make up for free in the hands of the expert make up artists at the Sephora store in via Martelli in Florence (this is a free service offered by Sephora, available in all their Italian stores, even without a scheduled appointment).

The first step is to choose between three different types of make up from the Sephora Nude range: Glowy, Bronze and Glamour – I chose Glamour! This make up really makes your eyes stand out, gives a luminous sheen to your lips, and gives you the most gorgeously radiant, dewy skin… Here’s the step-by-step account of my beautiful Nude make up!

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent: My after hours with YSL

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent: My after hours with YSL

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent. What happens when the darkness of night meets the pink light of dawn? The neon lights stand out and illuminate the night. While the sky lightens from black to pink, the lights shine, the city comes alive. There are those who are just waking up, and those who are still asleep. And then there are those who have stayed up all night to watch the sun come up. Electrifying! Non-stop! After hours!

I always aim to live life to the full, so this amazing spectacle of light and shadows is something I often see. All you need is a cup of coffee while you’re reclining in a comfy chair, a spritz of perfume to suit the daring mood, with the atmosphere full of electrifying anticipation, and share in the moment of relaxation. Make sure you always live life with determination and glamour!

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent

Tucked in the twilight shadows is where you’ll find the new fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent, Black Opium Nuit Blanche: a glittering and luminous bottle that perfectly embodies the light after sundown, the pink hues of day that mix with the dark shades of evening. Inside the bottle, there are dynamic and invigorating notes of black coffee, sweet and feminine notes of white flowers and orange blossom, and light fluttery hints of white musk. Black Opium Nuit Blanche is the first perfume to combine the scents of coffee and flowers! It’s a perfume that will get you hooked: after the first drop you won’t be able to live without it!

Here’s my verdict on the new fragrance by YSL, Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Nuit Blanche: perfect for daytime, even better for nighttime.

L’Occitane Milano: My Visit at L’Occitane Boutique in Milan, Rose Petals and Macarons!

L’Occitane Milano: My Visit at L’Occitane Boutique in Milan, Rose Petals and Macarons!

L’Occitane Milano. My adventure with L’Occitane started a couple of months ago , when they gave me the chance to visit the wonderful Provence. A region full of color and fragrances, and I visited it in the most magical time of the year: the flowering of lavender. There, between a ride on a hot air balloon and beauty treatment at the SPA of L’Occitane, I had the pleasure to meet Olivier Baussan, funder of L’Occitane and to talk with him about the secrets of a company that focuses on nature and authenticity for an healthy and beautiful skin. Well, I simply fell in love with this brand.

L’Occitane Milano: My Visit at L’Occitane Boutique in Milan, Rose Petals and Macarons!

Radiant, simple and devoted to important values (Here to see my trip to Provence and Here to read the post and see the photos). During my trip, I got a crush on Pivoine Sublime: a line indicated for girls that need an hydrated and perfumed skin and want to prevent the signs of time on their skin. Inside the Boutique in Milan, Corso Buenos Aires 15, the products of Pivoine Sublime Line had my logo on, saying that it is my favorite! Yay! Some days ago I attended an event at the boutique where I could meet some of you, sipping champagne and eating delicious macarons . I also had the chance to get to know better some features and news about L’Occitane
