Givenchy Makeup Collection for Autumn 2017

Givenchy is the brand that I really like these days, their products are not only amazing, the design and packing are right up my street, too. This is why I am excited to share their Autumn release.

First of all, there is a new lipstick Le Rouge Sculpt, $38

It features a  two-toned design: “The lipstick is designed to colour and contour in a single step. The core shade highlights the center of the lips, while the darker, tone-on-tone shade, enriched with the Noir Révélateur formula, contours the edges with a deeper color. It’s a lipstick like you’ve never seen before. Le Rouge Sculpt creates contrast, contours lips, and adds volume.”

It all sounds amazing, and I really hope it does all of that in real life. Can’t wait to try these lipsticks in person, as Givenchy lip products never disappoint (at least they don’t disappoint me).

Besides the lipsticks, there are also two eye products:

SS17 Mascaras: Dior, Lancome, YSL, Givenchy

Quite a few brands famous for mascaras launched  additions to their ranges, and we are talking about Lancome, YSL (The Shock) and Dior.  And I have reviewed at least one from each brand in the past…

I am also a huge fan of the Givenchy mascaras, so I am excited to see a new one from them, too.

But today let’s take a look at two mascaras I haven’t mentioned yet.

Dior Diorshow Pump‘N’Volume Mascara, $29.50 from Sephorafrom Selfridges and Bergdorf Goodman .

“A super-volumizing squeezable mascara with a fully loaded brush for instant, extreme lash volume.  By pumping the soft tube, you’ll coat the brush and soften the creamy, rich mascara formula inside for a perfect, fresh application, every time”.

Lancome The Monsieur Big Mascara,  $25 from Sephora,  Neiman Marcus,  Selfridges, HarrodsNordstrom.

“A high-volume mascara that delivers bold lash volume for up to 24 hours. Features a large brush and an ultra-creamy formula that glides onto lashes like silk and delivers up to 12 times the volume with up to 24 hours of wear”.

I am actually trying out quite a few mascaras now, so expect to see the reviews in the future.

Givenchy Gysophila Makeup Collection for Summer 2017

For Givenchy’s summer 2017 makeup collection Nicolas Degennes was inspired by gysophila  flowers.

The star of the collection is definitely the gorgeous  Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powder in 02 Douce Saison (£44) which features the Gypsophila pattern and   adds glow to the complexion.   The formula is  crafted from a liquid gel, which evaporates when baked to leave only pigment behind, this is why the product, according to the brand, has a long-lasting finish and  a natural-looking and flattering colour.

There are also two colourful eye products: Noir Couture Volume Waterproof Mascara
in 02 Blue Gypsophila (£25.50). And you may know that I am die hard fan of this mascara. And an

January 2017 Beauty Favourites

It’s like only yesterday I was writing about my favourite makeup products of 2016, and today I am already sharing about the favourites of the first month of 2017. Where did time go?

And it feels like I am talking about the same things over, and over again but I do love those products. However, I did discover some new gems this month.

Beauty 

REN  Rose O12 Moisture Defence Oil (from Cult Beauty, Feel UniqueLook Fantastic and  SEPHORA).

This is definitely my favourite oil of the moment, it works even for my extremely dry skin type, saves it from being flaky and itchy, and smells amazing.  Finally, a product I love as much, as my other REN Holy Grail.

J. R. Watkins Shea Butter Hand Cream (from Amazon)

My fried got this one in America, and she told me how this is a very rich and nourishing cream, and it is. While some people find such textures to be too much for their taste, I am a big fan, the cream leaves the  skin ridiculously soft and smooth. And smells of honey and coconuts.

Carmex Moisture Lip Balm (from Amazon)

Another present, this time from my lovely Farrah. This product does not need an introduction, it is a cult favourite for a reason. I personally love the
