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.

SS17 New Eye Products: Trish McEvoy, YSL, MAC and Smith and Cult

This post was supposed to be a Valentine’s Day beauty gift guide but since I did not have time to prepare one in time, it will be about the eye products launches that caught my attention.

Trish McEvoy 24-Hour Eye Shadow & Liner,  $33 from Neiman Marcus  and Bergdorf Goodman.

“Creamy, pigment-rich, shimmering eye shadow pen glides smoothly onto lid or lash line for endless shading and eye defining options with maximum staying power.”

 The shades are: Smokey Quartz (shown),  Topaz, Crystal Grey and  Rose Quartz

Smith & Cult B Line Wax Spastic Eye Pen Smith and Cult, $26 from Saks

I am excited to see Smith and Cult bringing out other makeup items besides their gorgeous nail polishes.

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

New Beauty Purchases

I haven’t posted about my new beauty and makeup purchases in a while, although I did feature them on Instargam, so here is a round-up.

Let’s start with beauty, I’ve actually got three products from Kiehl’s.

Original Musk Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser which I’ve got after reading all the raves from Sandra, and for some reason I was expecting a more intense scent but I still like it.

I’ve also decided to finally try the hyped up concentrates – Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Morning Reviving Concentrate. I will definitely write detailed reviews later on, but so far I can say that on my very dry skin I can’t use them on their own, as I often do with serums/oils, I have to use a cream on top.

Finally, beauty wise, although I did not buy this product myself, and it was a gift from a friend, I’ve decided to mention it, as it is such a  cool one – Tromborg Aromatherapy Body Oil Lavender Rose Tree (which I have already included in my favourites). From the motto ‘Scandinavian mood’ to luxurious packaging, nice formula and divine scent – it is as good as it gets.

As for makeup, it was all about Chanel, YSL, Smith & Cult and
