Chanel’s Le Volume de Chanel Mascara is one of the best ones I have ever tried.
It does pretty much everything I personally want from a mascara. And what is that?
It is uber black, you get full-on lush blackest black lashes. It is called Le Volume for a reason – it does give a fantastic volume and impressive length. I don’t like a subtle effect from my mascara, I may, as well not wear it at all in that case. And this one is
When I’ve heard that girls from Beauty Insider were working on Allure Russia, I knew that I had to get it! It is one of my dreams/goals to be fluent in at least five languages and Russian is already among those that I do speak.
It was not that easy for me to get the magazine but it was worth it, the content was interesting (they do tell negative things about the products, too) and there was also a sample of Chanel mascara.
It was Chanel Sublime de Chanel in 10 Deep Black.

I know that a lot of Make-Up Artists and beauty lovers recommend to save on a mascara but it just doesn’t work for me that way.
In my free time I do makeovers from time to time and cheaper mascaras do work on a lot of people. They look nice on me, too, but not like a good high-end mascara.
Although there are a lot of great mascaras, my favourite mascara has to be Lancome Hypnose as it makes even my short and thin lashes :cries: look almost like fake.
But for some reason I always love trying new mascara and… I have found the one that I love as much as my Hypnose. And that is a lot to say!
And I am talking about Dior DiorShow Extase mascara! I have already tried DiorShow Iconic which I actually really liked but Extase is even better.

It’s not a secret that my favourite mascara of all times is Hypnose by Lancome but I like trying new mascaras from time to time.
While a lot of people say that it’s a waste of money to buy a high-end mascara I have to disagree because I personally see a HUGE difference in a high-end and drugstore mascara. Yes, I do love Max Factor mascaras and some others are not so bad but they can’t replace the high-end mascaras for me. But I am talking about my own lashes. On some other people I can’t really tell the difference.
And I am obviously not trying to say that all the high-end mascaras are brilliant but most of those that I’ve tried are really good and in my opinion are worth the money. Maybe if you have long and thick lashes you can get a £5 mascara and be happy with it but I am not so lucky, so I can’t.
So today I want to tell you about one of those good high-end mascaras. And it is Film Noir mascara by Hourglass Cosmetics.
I have to start with saying that I love the design so much. It is simple and elegant, just what you would expect from a mascara which retails for £20/$28.
And what is about the mascara itself?

You already read the post about my favourite face products of 2010 and now it’s time for eye products! And, yes, stay tuned for the lip products part!
So let’s start!
My favourite mascara is Lancome Hypnose. I’ve tried so many mascaras (and have so many brand new waiting for me to try them) and although there are so many amazing products for me nothing beats up the Lancome Hypnose so far! Read review here.
Ellis Faas Lights
Not only they look absolutely gorgeous , but they also stay on for hours without creasing, fading or smudging. I am really impressed. Read review here.
Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadows
I just love these eye shadows and I’ve already written about them twice, they are just so good. Brilliant cream eye shadows. I know that several people bought them after reading my post (which makes me happy that people trust my reviews) and loved them, too. Read review here and here.
Yves Saint Laurent Ombres 5 Lumieres
These have been my favourite high-end eye shadows this year, the best quality ever: silky texture, nice pigmentation, beautiful shades. Read review here.

Every time I’ve wanted an eye liner – I’ve reached for the Illamasqua’s. They are just great:
