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.

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

Clarins Be Long Mascara Review. Rave

I was asked about the Clarins Be Long mascara so many times… This is why I am happy to share my opinion about it.

Lately I’ve been loving volumizing mascaras that give a real wow-effect, such as Chanel’s Le Volume de Chanel and Max Factor’s Excess Volume Extreme Impact , so I was a bit afraid that this one could be too subtle. But, luckily, you can get not only “natural looking lashes” with this mascara. You can achieve more dramatic results, too.

Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir Review. Rave

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?

Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 10 Noir Review

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
