A couple of weeks ago I wrote that I was in the mood for some jumpsuits (check my jumpsuits for women blog post here), and that was when I met the Femme Luxe website, so this time I’m writing a Femme Luxe Review to help who’s looking for more info on this online store.
So, this time I’ll be showing you what I’ve got from the website. I went for some different kind of clothing: from a white bodysuit to a lounge wear set! Check everything I’ve choose this time and more information about this website.
• Femme Luxe Haul Try on & Review:
Like I wrote on my previous post, I was positively surprised with the quality of the clothing from this website and this time I tried more than just jumpsuits. So my choices this time included a polka dot white and black dress, a lounge wear set, a white lace bodysuit (on that very trend style made with lace and some transparency) and a little white jacket.
If you’re wondering if Femme Luxe is a safe website and if it’s real, yes, it is. All four pieces that I had chosen arrived well and they were just like the photos showed on their website. Therefore, the clothes do arrive and from this and from my past experience, all of them were just like pictured on the website.
Bonus point is that the prices are very affordable and the quality of fabric and sewing are fine! So here are my photos showing how the clothes wear and how I styled them:
• White Polka Dot Dress:
It’s no surprise that I LOVE DRESSES, right? So, when I saw this asymmetric polka dot dress at Femme Luxe, I was in love! It’s such a cute dress and it’s also perfect for this time of the year, when the weather starts to change a bit. The asymmetric detail of one long sleeve makes it very delicate, but also very fashionable!
Since the dress is super cute, I went for a classy style! Matching it with a white pair of shoes and a white bag, plus some classy big black sunglasses:
• White Lace Bodysuit from Femme Luxe:
If you have Instagram (BTW, if you don’t follow me yet, don’t forget to follow @manuluize for your daily dose of fashion and beauty inspiration), you probably noticed how the lace bodysuit trend took over Insta outfits lately! So there I was in the mood to try it!
So I decided to pick a white lace bodysuit from Femme Luxe this time, to see how I’d feel about it and how to style it. My favourite way to style it is to wear with another layer, like a jacket or even a shirt or a long sleeved top. Plus, add a layered necklace and you will be super trendy!
• White jacket:
Something that I noted that I was missing for a while on my closet was a white jacket! So when I saw this one, I knew that was it! Something as basic as a white jacket is always useful to match with so many different outfits and being white, it will never go out of style and it can be paired with so many different colours.
Here I styled it with the same lace bodysuit, creating a different outfit. But this jacket will be so versatile to pair with some many pieces, from tank tops to dresses, with shorts, skirts and pants.
• Lounge wear set:
I’m one of those people who loves beautiful pyjamas and loungewear, I mean, why wouldn’t you be stylish when you’re inside the house or just running errands, right? So, I felt in love with this lounge wear set with a pair of pants and a cropped top that’s so cute and super lovely:
I actually had thought it would be like a set of sweatpants, but the fabric is actually different, it’s lighter, so it’s perfect even for the not so cold days and for staying in. It’s cute and super comfy, definitely a win-win kind of outfit!
You can wear this set with a pair of sneakers or ballerina flats and you’re ready to leave the house too!
Nothing like a beautiful longe wear set, that if you need to quickly go out, you don’t even have to think that much, makeup and go! ;)

A pair of black leather pants or leggings is always a good acquisition for your wardrobe, because you can wear and style it in so many different ways!
You can either go for a casual and cool look, for a more sexy outfit or even create a contrast between cute and sexy! Like I did with this outfit:
With black eco leather leggings and a cute pink and black & white top, I paired this outfit with a pair of black patent leather high heels to complete my look! I love to play with a sexy piece + a cute one, creating a contrast between the two, but also a balance on my outfit.
We photographed this outfit here in Milan on a very unusual fresh summer day, if you’ve been following me on Instagram (if not, just check @manuluize for fashion, beauty and travel tips and videos straight from Milan in Italy), you will know the summer can be very hot here! So, I’m always very happy when it’s fresher, so I can enjoy a pair of pants or long skirts once in a while.
This outfit is actually very mid-season as well, because a pair of black leather pants goes well on fresh spring days or it’s even perfect for some warm days during the fall season!
And a pair of leggings like this will be perfect for styling many different outfits during the different seasons. Something that I really liked about this pair of leggings is that the fabric isn’t see-through, so you can even wear it with a cropped top without having to worry about anything, like I did here:
I’ve been waiting a pair of black leather pants and I believe that as soon as the weather allows here in Milan, I’ll be wearing a lot this pair of leggings!
I always liked how jumpsuits for women looked, all so elegant! But I actually have no idea how, until recently, I didn’t own any long jumpsuits! No idea how that happened, but, well, problem is solved now, since I was really in the mood for some jumpsuits, so I’ve just got 3 of them at once (well, I had to compensate for all those years, right?).
And I must add that I’m LOVING wearing them! I love the elegant vibe the jumpsuits give and I’ve just chosen some models from a website called Femme Luxe and I’m loving them!
So get ready to be inspired with 3 different jumpsuits for women outfits that I worn recently here in Milan:
• Jumpsuits for women: 3 outfits to inspire YOU
The first jumpsuit that I chose was this asymmetric one with a long sleeve, it’s very elegant, but being asymmetric, it definitely has a fashion vibe to it. I went for an elegant outfit, pairing this black jumpsuit with black patent leather high heels and a black and gold belt.
Since this jumpsuit is an one-shoulder jumpsuit, I went for big and bold earrings to match the look I was going for.
Ordering online for the first time in a new website is not knowing how the fabric will turn out to be, right? Happily, I’ve been enjoying all my jumpsuits’ quality, they are all well made, the fabric is soft and it feels just like I was expecting them all to be.
When we think about jumpsuits for women, we have a lot of options and different models to choose from! With long sleeve, sleeveless, strapless, in a solid color or printed, cute, cool or sexy! The options of outfits with jumpsuits are really endless, making it possible to wear a different one whenever you’re in the mood for a different style.
Well, if you’re in the mood for something sexy, this strapless jumpsuit can definitely be a great choice, like I did on my second outfit!
It’s a black sweetheart neck jumpsuit, that feels so comfortable to wear, but it’s kind of sexy at the same time.
To make it a femme fatale outfit, just pair this strapless jumpsuit with high heels and bold accessories. To make it more elegant, I chose this golden belt to dress up my outfit with more elegance. A red lipstick can always help on the sexiness. ;)
The reason why I always choose elegant accessories whenever I’m going for a sexy look is because it will keep my outfit sexy, but elegant at the same time (which is my style), so I always prefer to dress it up to create a balance avoiding being too sexy (which is never a problem, just it’s not my personal style ;) ).
Of course I went for a little more sexy approach with this outfit, but you can also wear this strapless jumpsuit with ballet flats to make it a little more “dress down“/casual.
Matchy-matchy, take a look on how my heels match my golden belt on this outfit, sometimes, it’s a little detail that can make an outfit even more special:
Black outfits are always appreciated, but some colour is also good, right?
So moving on from the black outfits, I also chose a light peach coloured jumpsuit in a very different style. This jumpsuit is in a light colour and it’s made in a very classy and elegant style with frill sleeves. Making it a great outfit for the day or even for going out, specially now that we’re in the summer:
Here’s my light/cute makeup for this elegant look and my accessories are from Les Georgettes:
Are you in the mood of a jumpsuit too now?
Jumpsuits for women can be a great piece to wear at any time of the year, it goes well in the summer, but it’s also perfect for the fall/winter season, all you have to do is add a layer to it (with a jacket/coat). And you’re ready to go!
One of the advantages of a jumpsuit is that since it’s a “all-in-one” piece, it’s super easy to wear, because you don’t have to match a top + bottom part. So they are also perfect for when you’re in a rush and have no time to match all pieces of an outfit. Easy + stylish, that’s definitely a win-win situation.

Milan is preparing to welcome the 4th edition of the Lierac Beauty Run this Saturday 8th June. This is a special run, not just because it was the first one I’ve took part, but because it’s dedicated to women and their relatives and the running will take place at 9pm at the Arena Civica here in Milan, such a beautiful location! The event is organized by RCS Sports & Events – RCS Active Team with LIERAC, a cosmetic brand distributed exclusively in pharmacies and parapharmacy, always close to the female universe.
As last year, you can choose one of the two options for the run:
1) of 5 km for non-competitive cross the Parco Sempione
2) of 10 km for the competitive and non-competitive that will wind between the Brera area, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Piazza Duomo, Cordusio, Cairoli with the Castello Sforzesco with the start and finish line always positioned at the Arena Civica.
The preparation and fun start early on the day, from 3.30 pm a series of activities will start at the Beauty Village that will accompany the participants throughout the afternoon before the run.
This year’s theme is Ready Shine Go (nothing more feminine, right?), it’s the new mood chosen by the LIERAC to express the spirit that accompanies many women: light up to reveal the best side of themselves!
Moving on to the day’s program, a special space will be provided at the LIERAC stand where beauty tips will be offered for the skin as well as the Lierac Sun Point, the solar oasis that will allow you to enjoy the benefits of the sun in complete safety, thanks to the Sunissime line. Moreover, to celebrate the theme of this edition, Ready Shine Go, a special glittery photo corner created in collaboration with Design by Gemini, and a tattoo station where you can get gadgets to shine in the most pink summer evening.
In the PHYTO Hair – Bar instead it will be possible to book a “shining” pre-run hairstyle. A moment entirely dedicated to well-being that will allow runners to prepare for the running in style!
NEW BALANCE, technical sponsor of the Lierac Beauty Run for the second consecutive year, has designed the beautiful t-shirt fort his new edition, in a female and male version!
In the GARMIN space you can discover the new GPS watches for the forerunner 45 and forerunner 245 race. These new devices measure the distance traveled and record the heart rate during running workouts. VEEPEE, the well-known e-commerce site dedicated to beauty, will create a Summer Oasis in which you can take a souvenir photo and where you will be offered fresh fruit juices and popsicles. Furthermore, special tattoos and a free yoga session, all dedicated to enjoy and relax before the run starts. There will be refreshing herbal teas and glittered cotton candy offered by TESCOMA, in addition to a series of surprises offered to adults and children.
To warm up the muscles before departure, or just for a relaxing massage at the end of the race, there will be a space dedicated to relaxation and well-being at 360 ° by LLOYDS FARMACIA which will involve Ecolife professional physiotherapists. The creation of the Kids Area is planned, organized by KIKOLLE LAB, where children from 1 to 10 can enjoy games, animations and many other surprises.
From 3:30pm on the stage, there will be many initiatives to entertain runners and a special warm-up signed by the trainers of the Audacious Gym.
One of the things that I love about this run is that, like last year, participants will have the opportunity to support individual projects by donating 5 euros of the participation fee to one of the five partner associations, which are Fondazione Umberto Veronesi, Dynamo Camp, DiversityLab, Fondazione Francesca Rava e Professional Women Network.
from 3.30 pm to 8.30 pm in the check-in area you can collect your run number.
Registration can be made online and at the Beauty Village on Saturday: 17 euros for online registration by 7 June and 20 euros for the registration at the Beauty Village on the day of the run.

Often we have a garment that can be worn and styled in many different ways, but have you ever thought about how to wear a shirt and style it differently?
A shirt is such a basic and so classic piece that almost everyone has at least one in the wardrobe, and did you know that it can actually be worn in several different ways? You can even make it look like almost a new blouse!
So I filmed a video with 7 different ways on how to wear and style a button up shirt, showing the same piece worn in different ways, not only in different looks, but also showing you how to style, tie or twist it to create a new way of wearing a shirt. In the number 7, it almost looks like another piece!

As someone who has oily skin, there was a time I was kind of afraid even to think of using a skincare product that was oil-based, until I tried the first facial oil 2 years ago and I loved the texture! It is not because the product is an oil texture one that it will leave your skin oily, in fact even if you have oily skin, you can use oil-based products with no problem at all and they can be great for your skin.
So today I’m doing a full review of the InLight Face Oil, a product and brand that I’ve met at the Cosmoprof last year and that I was testing for a couple of months, using it daily during my morning and night routine.
• InLight Face Oil: Review
I’d like to just mention that InLight Beauty is an organic cosmetic brand, and that this Face Oil is 100% organic, meaning that all ingredients present in this product are 100% natural and organic. And I’ve been really enjoying getting to know more natural and organic brands, because I love skincare products and since they are super present in my daily routine, it’s always better to pay attention to what ingredients and chemicals I’m applying to my skin.
So back to the InLight Face Oil: it’s a protective elixir for daily moisturising and it’s recommended for all skin types, including sensitive and/or damaged skin by sun and ageing.
The brand introduces this face oil with the following benefits:
– To help to balance production of skin sebum
– For long lasting moisturising feel
– To create a protective barrier and base for makeup
– To leave your skin feeling velvety soft
After using it for a couple of months, I really feel that my skin feels moisturised and smooth, this oil is not heavy and it didn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I applied it every day morning and night and my skin was never feeling oily because of the product.
I also liked it as a base for my makeup, the foundation apply very easily after this oil.
This face oil has a really light texture and it’s easily absorbed by the skin, it doesn’t make your skin look or feel oily and since it’s easily absorbed, it also don’t make your skin feel sticky or anything like it. It’s color is yellow, but it goes clear and transparent when you apply it into your skin.
You just need a few drops to apply this oil to your face and neck, by the way, never forget to apply your skincare in you neck as well! The packaging recommends from 2 to 5 drops for face and neck and that’s really it, you just need a small quantity of product.
You can apply it and after go with any other product that you feel the need to apply, or you can apply your daily sunscreen if it’s in the morning.
I usually apply oily products after I wash my face and apply an eye cream, so the third product will be the skincare oil-based product I’m using at the moment. In the night I do the same thing and sometimes I apply a face exfoliator before applying this oil.
I’ve been really enjoying using oil-based products and I really liked this Face Oil from InLight, for being light textured and actually making my skin smooth and moisturised after every application. Since I tried it for a good couple of months, I can also say that it didn’t leave my skin oilier even when I was applying it on a continuous basis, even on a long period of time.
