YSL Faux Cils Mascara Review. Rave

My name is Marina, and I am mascara snob. Although most make-up artists and beauty writers say how mascara is the product to save on, this is not for me. After all mascara is one of the most important products in my makeup bag, so it has to be perfect. And YSL Faux Cils meets all my requirements.

This lill’ gem does not need an introduction, a cult classic for a reason, it gives you phenomenal lashes, hence the name. You get ridiculously -long-touching-your-eyebrows lashes which are voluminous and ultra-black, too. On me this mascara stays on pretty well, without smudging for the whole working day.

And that is not to mention that it comes in the gorgeous YSL gold packaging. And although I am the biggest fan of black you will ever find, I still think that YSL’s gold feels more luxurious. And, yes, when you pay a lot for

Rouge Bunny Rouge WITCHERY Modelling Mascara. Review. Rave

Today I’d like to tell you more about one of the best mascaras that I have used, and it is Rouge Bunny Rouge WITCHERY Modelling mascara. I have already mentioned it in my October favourites so here are more details.

Rouge Bunny Rouge WITCHERY Modelling Mascara. Review.

Who knows how you look better than your Mum? So when the other day when I was seeing mine she asked if I was wearing false lashes or had lash extensions I knew that this mascara works. Especially considering that my lashes are not something to write home about…

First of all I really love the rubber brush which is bendable, easy to use,  and mess-free, I don’t get the

October 2015 Beauty Favourites

October is one of my favourite months and I am kind of sad that it is over already but it was a great one despite the fact that I was ill for over a week.

I’ve decided that before talking about my beauty favourites, I’d mention some other things I like/enjoy:

  • I’ve finally went to my first swimming class after planning on going for months. Since I’ve got sick the next day I haven’t been back yet but I will be. Next week.
  • Downton Abbey. That 1920’s style…And I refuse to accept that it’s the last season.
  • Since I was ill for a week at home, I’ve got time to read and it was wonderful. I was mostly reading cultural and philosophical articles (yeah, I do love such topics) but here is my reading list.
  • And finally – Pinterest. This has to be my favourite social media, I am always browsing/pinning/saving photos.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and swatches)

This is probably my favourite launch of the year. Seriously, I could not love these blushes more than I do, and I feel like I have been going on, and on about them. They have the creamiest and softest texture, blend beautifully and have that all-in-one effect.  You don’t really need any highlighter or sculpting, just this. And

April 2015 Beauty Favourites

Can you believe that it is MAY already? Where did 2015 go?  Maybe that is because I am crazy busy these days that I don’t notice anything around me, who knows…

But back to April Beauty Favourites. I did not have that many makeup favourites, and did not want to mention the same products over, and over again – so here are 3 hero products that I have been using every single day when I did my makeup ( I was sick for a week in April which was horrible), and some new  beauty loves…

The three makeup heroes I’ve mentioned are: Rouge Bunny Rouge Raven Glaze Lacquer Liner (review and swatches)Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara (review),  Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review). I haven’t been experimenting with eye makeup that much this month, and these are the products that just work. Eye brow gel to tint my eye brows and keep them in place, ultra black liner for that feline flick and mascara for thick and long lashes.

There are also three products that I’ve mentioned in my Spring Beauty GuideBalance Me Radiance Rose Face Oil and Aromatherapy Associates Hydrating Rose Radiance Skin Serum for that

Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara Review

Max Factor have been killing it with their mascaras lately. Their Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara (review here) was one of the best ones I have ever tried, no wonder it won so many awards.

The brand came out with a new one Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Volumising Mascara  recently which I have posted on Instagram about  a month ago and which you could see in this post.

I have been using it since February, and I want to share my impression finally…

Max Factor Glamour Extensions 3-in-1 Mascara Review

Apparently this mascara contains lash extending carbon-black fibres for thicker, longer and more intense lashes.

And that is how it works –  Glamour Extensions gives amazing volume, great length as the short bristles allow to coat each lash;  and don’t forget the ultra black intense colour. I also love how long-lasting it is! I have sensitive eyes that are often watering, so it is important that it doesn’t smudge or run. Big thumbs up for such an amazing formula.

I have been
