Hyped Up Mascaras Review: Lancome and It Cosmetics

In a second feature for the mascara week I thought it’d be great to talk about two hyped up mascaras and share my impression about each. Spoiler alert: I am a huge fan of one and really dislike the other, no matter how much I’ve tried to like it. One more important thing   – I have tried both mascaras not only on myself. I’ve also paid for both.

Here we go…

It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara (£20 from Cult Beauty/$24 from Sephora)

This mascara is absolutely brilliant, it lives up to the “Superhero” name. It is an all-in-one formula, your lashes are instantly transformed. We are talking ultra black, long and super voluminous results.

I’ve also read that this product contains “lash-lifting polymers, volumising collagen, strengthening biotin, proteins and peptides” to condition the lashes. I am a huge effect of this mascara as it is so that is like a great bonus.

You get great fabulous results with any  sorts of lashes but if yours are

Nails Of The Day: Lancome Vernis in Love in 453 Infusion de Prune

Here is the swatch of one of the prettiest nail polish shades for Autumn/Winter season – Lancome Vernis in Love in 453 Infusion de Prune.

It is a beautiful glossy plum  which is a bit lighter than most vampy & gothic berry/plum shades, it is a classic colour I would say.

I am in love with Lancome’s wide brushes, they are a pleasure to use, plus it is always fast and mess-free.

This nail polish goes on smoothly and is opaque with one layer. The staying power is also nice.

You get 6 ml for  £12/$15 which I personally like as I never finish big bottles of nail polish anyway.

Infusion de Prune is a limited edition shade which was released as a part of Autumn collection, so get it while it’s still available.

Lancome L’Absolu Creme de Brillance in 300 Magie Pourpre Review and Lip Swatches

It’s amazing how much the quality of the lip products is improved now, long lasting liquid lipsticks is the new thing.

I’ve already published the preview of a lot of those and did a review about the Stila  Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and LUSH Lipstick recently.

So today I want to show you Lancome’s L’Absolu Creme de Brillance (£21/$29.50) which is basically a very pigmented creamy lipstick.

The shade that I have is called 300 Magie Pourpre  and it is a full-on deep fuchsia, very beautiful. Your lips won’t get unnoticed with this product on, for sure.

I love all Lancome lip (and not only) products that I have tried and this one is not an exception. Although it is very pigmented and stays on nicely, it feels amazing on the lips, very soft and smooth. In fact, you can’t really

Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in 160 Rouge Hypnose Review and Lip Swatches.Rave

I have quite a few red lipsticks and I do love a good red! Today I want to show you one of my favourites.

Lancome’s L’Absolu Rouge (£21) in 160 Rouge Hypnose is  simply perfection! This has to be my favourite lipstick that I’ve tried recently (apart from Lush, will tell you about it later).

I really love the design, in fact, I think this may be my favourite luxury lipstick design. It is very elegant and classic, the magnet on the cap is a great detail, too.

The texture and the shade are fantastic! L’Absolu Rouge is soft and smooth, applies like a dream and gives a beautiful colour pay-off.

Rouge Hypnose is not a very bright in-your-face-red  and at the same time it is not a sheer, barely-there balmy red. This makes it  a perfect lipstick both for day time and

Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. Review and Photos

I’ve got the mini size of Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base with my Lancome purchase the other day. I am a huge fan of Lancome mascaras so, obviously, I was  curious about this base.

This is what Lancome says:

“The magic behind this mascara base is the conditioning formula—featuring micro-fibers and Vitamin E – to add extra length and thickness to your lashes for added visible performance to your mascara.”

For some reason I was not impressed at first and I was a bit shocked as Lancome eye products never ever disappointed me.   So I was determined to keep using it and… It does work!

It does give a better volume and length. The lashes
