I think I have already told this story, but why not sharing it once again. When I was a child the most fascinating thing for me, makeup-wise, was a colourful mascara. I remember that I was about 6, when I saw a girl with blue eye lashes, and I just couldn’t take my eyes off her. I promised myself that when I grow up – I will have a lot of different shades!
And, although, I don’t really wear blue or green mascaras that often – I do like more subtle versions for a change. Here are three that I want to share with you.
Clarins Instant Definition Mascara in Intense Plum (review)
This was a Limited Edition, but since it’s my favourite colourful mascara that I ever owned, I had to include it. Plus, you can still get it from Amazon.
The formula is brilliant, is gives you that wow-effect, nice volume and intensity. I adore wearing it when I opt for a bright lip and want to keep my eyes look more subtle (and more interesting than just black) but still defined. Actually, I get a lot of compliments when I am wearing it.

I said it already, and I will say it again, Benefit always have the most amazing Christmas gift sets, and I get myself one every year! This time I’d love to get the one with blushers, but all the other options are pretty awesome, as well!

If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen this photo, and my promise of the feature. So here it is…
Actually, believe it or not, but usually I don’t care about dark circles (on myself, not when I am doing someone’s makeup), unless they really look that bad. But when I do want to look flawless, here is what I do.
First of all, I use a good eye cream, for me it has to be a moisturizing balm, as I have very dry skin. I love Clarins Special Eye Contour Balm Dry Skin (review) and FOM London Revitalising Eye Care Balm (read about it), I leave it for some time while I am getting ready, and afterwards the following products are being used:

It seems like it’s now a tradition to show you what beauty and makeup products I take with me when I am away, just like in this post. So, since I am currently visiting my family, here is a quick update on what products I took with me.
To tell the truth, I barely wear any makeup these days but I did take quite a few products (and a lot of brushes) since people always ask me for a makeover.
I am very happy with the skincare that I’ve packed with me, including a lot of mini bottles which I am currently testing. I only wish I took more than three nail polishes, as my 5-years-old-cousin loves to borrow them
Speaking of my cousin, she insisted on inspecting my “treasures” as she described my makeup bag… When she saw the red lipstick I had, she told me that she had to put it on me, since it’d make me look gorgeous. What can I say? She does know beauty.
Rejoice the lovers of pen-form eye liners! I am personally a huge fan, and use this one a lot! Three brands are brining out their versions.
Givenchy released a Liner Couture Black which you can get from Harrods for £23.50. The tip looks very thin, so I assume that it should work even for a precise between-the-lash application.
Even though this post is all about the liners, I thought I’d mention the new mascara from the brand, as well – Givenchy Noir Couture Volume Black Taffetas, which you can get from Harrods for £23.50 or Sephora for $32 which is a volumizing mascara. I could get it only for the packaging. Seriously, the brand just kills it with their new design! The best. Period.
I also couldn’t be happier that my favourite Mariacarla is the face of the launch!
