When in Rome… go shopping! :D

little beauty haul, when in rome go shopping, rimmel, gucci and kiko

Hey there, you beautiful human being, you. πŸ˜‰

(I just felt very cheerful, okay?)

Recently, I went on holiday to Italy and, besides seeing Venice and Verona and San Marino, my shopaholic self had to buy a few items…

Nothing much, though, I promise.

So, you know what they say: ‘When in Rome (or just ‘Italy’, in general) – go shopping’. πŸ™‚

1)Β ‘Flora’ by Gucci – Glorious Mandarin

When I was in San Marino, I had one thing in mind – to buy a perfume. (since there’s no tax and everything is less expensive there) So, I found this baby and I fell in love. It’s such a great summer scent! I just know that it’ll be the scent that reminds me of summer! Also, this is a tester, meaning it’s stronger than the normal fragrance. (which is something I learnt recently) Mine is in great condition – it has a lid, it’s full (100ml) and it seems untouched. The only difference is that it came in a white box, but who cares, really?

2) Kiko MilanoΒ Tri Colour Baked Blush – 03 Wild Mauve

I’ve heard Zoe talking about this blusher and it looked so gorgeous, so I had to try it. It seemed like a highlighter and blusher all in one, so I said ‘heck yes’ and bought it. It looks so beautiful and, honestly, I love the packaging. It is a bit bigger and impractical, but it’s so pretty. I might do a review of this product, as soon as I use it a bit more. πŸ™‚

3) Rimmel Provocalips – Playing With Fire

Once upon a time, I saw this wonderful lip colour – Kiss Me You Fool. The name was quite appealing and I thought ‘I want it!’. However, it wasn’t sold here, blah-blah, story of my life, #firstworldproblems, and then, in the store, I came to a conclusion that I already own a shade like that (Rimmel Kate Moss 111 – Kiss Of Life) . So, this colour was my second option – it’s slightly darker and more autumn-ier than ‘KMYF’, and might I say a bit sexier? I don’t know, you can be the judge of that. πŸ˜‰

And that’s all! See, I told you, I didn’t go completely crazy. πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyed this mini-haul.

      Haha, I didn’t actually go to Rome (this year), I visited San Marino, Venice and Verona.
      I only used Rome because of that saying ‘When in Rome…’
      I might do a travel diary or a ‘My Holiday In Photos’ type of post, if that’s something you’d like to see. πŸ˜€

      Thank you! I know, the packaging is adorable! They just seem super cool! πŸ˜€
