Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-tip Eyeliner

I’ve been having a thing for Givenchy makeup lately. And whenever I run out of a product, it is one of the first brands I look into.

My favourite BY TERRY Ligne Blackstar in So Black (here) dried out right before the wedding, which was very unexpected, and I was almost in a panic mode, to be honest.  But I had to calm down and go shopping for a new eye liner (all the ones I had were not good enough).

It took a while to find the one I would like, as the photo above demonstrates. And   Givenchy Liner Couture Precision Felt-tip Eyeliner was the one.

I really loved the

October 2017 Beauty Favourites

I don’t have that many favourites this month but I really love each and every one a lot.

Givechy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara in Deep Black (from  Neiman MarcusBarneysHarrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom)

I am huge fan of Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara, and I really like this one, too. This ball-shaped mascara has been around for a while but I have tried it only this year and only because I’ve bought it by accident (did not return it because the lady at Givenchy told me it is her favourite). And I am happy I’ve kept it, as it is great. It takes time to get used to this shape but once you do – you can get incredible results: think, long and black lashes. I also like the fact that this mascara stays on without smudging all day. The only thing I’d  say is that this is not a I-am-in-a-rush product, it does take some time to build up the effect but it is worth it, in my opinion.

Mascara is probably the makeup product. And usually  even those ladies who are not into makeup love themselves some mascara so I’ve decided to dedicate this week to mascaras, and we will start with looking at my all time favourites. I’ve selected six: five black and my all time favourite colourful mascara.

  • Smith & Cult Lash Dance Mascara Review 
  • YSL Faux Cils Mascara Review
  • HOURGLASS Caution Extreme Lash Mascara review

A few of these are a cult classic, and for a reason, I must say. Hourglass mascara was launched relatively recently but it took the beauty world by storm. Smith and Cult is the
