Lush haul

I've recently been to Lush multiple times, and I ended up buying some products.
I've known Lush for a long time but I never really tried much, as many things are a bit expensive in my opinion. This time I decided to buy them anyway, as I was in the mood.

Ever heard of Bottega Verde?

Bottega Verde is an Italian brand of cosmetics and body products, and I really enjoy paying a visit to their shop from time to time as they always surprise me with huge sales and offers.

The last time I've been there, I signed up to get their fidelity card, and bought some skincare products.

Eye pencils, my first love.

I think I'm going to keep my beauty rants and reviews on the blog here rather than on my YouTube channel because most of my subscribers there are not really keen on makeup and beauty.

While thinking of a way to start my journey of beauty related posts, I ended up thinking back to where and when my makeup obsession has started. The first couple of products I ever started using were a stick concealer that my mum got me when I was about eleven (because I was facing a really bad acne back then) and a black kajal eyeliner by a brand called Deborah, which is a nice Italian drugstore brand. 
During my time at scuole medie (the school that children aged 11 to 14 have to attend to in Italy) I was so much different from now, I didn't really like fashion and such, I was in a weird phase and didn't want to feel mainstream, so I only used to paint my nails (mainly black I believe) and apply a thin line of pencil liner in the lower part of my eye. So much has changed as time passed, but I still love to apply my pencil liners. I have increased the range of colours, tried out different brands and changed the way I apply them, but my black pencil is still a faithful companion of mine.

Nowadays I mostly apply pencils right above my upper lashes, tracing a quite thick line and smudging the edges with a thin brush. 
My favourite brands and colours are going to be listed below.
