Givenchy give most other beauty companies a run for their money when it comes to packaging lately.
I am a huge fan of the Noir Couture mascara and I also loved their felt tip eye liner, and that makes me very excited for the new Disturbia collection, I have my eyes on the black mascara, besides these three, and the eye liner in the red packaging. I am being that specific because there is also a red mascara (which looks burgundy on the promos; LE), and an eye liner in a black packaging.
I’ve bought a mini NARS mascara just because it was in red, and good thing I’ve got a small one, it smudges like crazy, and I prefer the Givenchy design anyway. Basically, you can put anything in a red tube and I already want it, simple as that.
What about the products?
The liner is promised to be intense, smudge-proof and waterproof while delivering an intense black colour.
The mascara is described as the one to give “excessive volume and dramatic curve. A volume and curve effect, so excessive, they are almost disturbing!” The brush is silicone.
I have noticed that both products are sold out already, and why am I not surprised, so we’ll have to wait for the restocks. Givenchy is available online from Saks Neiman Marcus, Barneys, Harrods, Sephora, Escentual and Nordstrom so keep an eye on those magical red packaging.
The price for both is €29.
A England is one of a kind brand, not only their nail polishes are ridiculously gorgeous but the stories behind them are fascinating. It was a pleasure to interview the founder Adina (read it here) a while ago, and I am always looking forward to the new releases.
And this time the brand outdone itself, in my opinion, the new British Subcultures collection makes my heart beat faster. I found it mind blowing how Adina managed to visualise a certain subculture with a colour, this is pure art, I am telling you.
Above you can see Goth shade, and here is what is posted on the brand’s Facebook about it: “GOTH one of my best-loved among the British Subcultures. The goth subculture began in England during the early 1980s. This mostly aesthetic subculture includes dark attire (often black) and is marked by an antiquated style that is
Bright eye shadows are a real trend this summer, I have already featured L’Oreal and Viseart but there are many, many more. I’ve decided to mention 3 palettes which I personally like the most. And I like the look of them. I have not tried these particular palettes but I do have other palettes from these three brands, and love them. So here is hoping these are great, too.
I am including this because I am obsessed with Norvina palette which I have. While I did not know who Alyssa Edwards was (RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant) I love the combination of bold and neutral shades.
- 10 x Eyeshadows in Headliner (matte bright white), Inspire (metallic champagne gold), Unicorn Tribe (matte cool plum pink), Brick Road (matte primary yellow), Back Rolls (matte warm chocolate brown), The Supreme (matte deep peach), H.O.E. (matte neutral taupey brown), D.D.G. (rich metallic violet with silver flecks), Beyond (warm metallic fuchsia), Beast (matte blackest black)
- 4 x Pressed Pigments in Texas Made (matte fuchsia hot pink pressed pigment), Dream It (matte royal blue pressed pigment), B.B.D.C. (deep cool aubergine pressed pigment), Believe (violet purple pressed pigment).

I am a huge fan of shimmer body oils for summer and have been for a while. Why? Simply because they make your skin look polished. And don’t worry, you will not end up looking like a greasy disco ball, shimmer oil for your body is like highlighter for your face. It just makes everything look dewy and glowing, in a good way. Not to mention that it’s not only a visual effect, as the ingredients in your oil will moisturise, soften and smooth the skin.
While I still remain a huge fan of Omorovicza, you don’t have to spend €70 on it, while it is worth it, in my opinion. So here are three body shimmer oils which caught my attention this summer.
One is brand new, one was around for some time, and the third one just got some new LE shades. Let’s take a look.
I really loved the Bum Bum cream so would expect these to be incredible, as well. There are
I have noticed that a few really cool brands launched lip and cheek products, so here is a preview. And while I have only tried one product from Milk so far, I am a big fan of Trish and RBR, as regular readers will know.
