Want It: Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes and Oscillation Intensity Mascaras

I have to admit that I have a lot of mascaras waiting for me to try them but as I don’t like using more that five mascaras at one time they are waiting for their turn. So clearly one more mascara is definitely not what I need right now. But when I saw this I my first thought was: “OMG, I TOTALLY NEED THIS IN MY LIFE NOW!”. Ok, I should use the word want, but maybe need after all? 😉

Hypnose is my favourite mascara, so this is obvious that I want this pretty little baby with the sweet “”Doll Eyes name.

According to this German on-line shop  where you can already pre-order it, this mascara costs €28.50

There is also a new mascara which is already available called

Laura Mercier Portofino Summer 2011 Makeup Collection

Here is a preview of Laura Mercier summer 2011 makeup collection which is called Portofino.

I absolutely love the promo image. This is a perfect  summer makeup: marine eye liner, bronzed cheeks and glowing complexion with a pop of a bright lipstick! I  can also imagine the model wearing a striped top, I know this all is not very original but, oh so pretty, in my opinion!

The star of the collection is the Riviera Eye Shadow quad ($40)

Which is described as  a palette containing four ‘of the moment’ shades: Deep Water Blue, Sandy Beige, Soft Sky Blue and Crisp White.

Other products are:

  • Sheer Crème Glow  in Golden Pink, $35

Amazing Affordable Makeup Remover: Bourjois Demaquillant Yeux Doux Review

I absolutely love Bi-Facil  makeup remover by Lancome but I wanted to find a cheaper  makeup remover which I would love to share with you all. And at last I did! After trying so many different affordable brands I’ve finally found something that I really love.

All the other products that I’ve tried from this price range did not work for me although I did read some great reviews about them. But the  Demaquillant Yeux Doux turned out to be pretty amazing!

This Bourjois Cleanser is formulated for sensitive eyes and has a  soothing effect. I find the organic green tea enriched  formula fresh, non greasy and gentle.  But on the other hand it effectively removes makeup without rubbing the eyes. It also never irritates my eyes which is very important. This products is alcohol free and is suitable for  those who wear contact lenses.

I don’t remember the exact price unfortunately but it is really reasonable.
