New Lancome Grandiose: The Swan-Neck Mascara

Posted · 19 Comments

A new and rather exciting launch from Lancome; a mascara that promises to solve all of our mascara-applying woes! My particular mascara grievances are: wands that are too long and uncontrollable and bristles that are just ridiculously chunky. With too-long wands I inevitably poke the wrong part of my lid and trigger some kind of crazy [...]

Any Lancome Hypnose Mascara for £10…

Posted · 15 Comments

Nice little flash offer for you; in celebration of the fact that Lancome’s amazing Hypnose mascara is 10 years old, you can grab any version of it for £10 instead of the usual £22.50 (here). Permanent products such as these are almost never reduced in price, so it’s a good chance to stock up if you tend [...]

Beauty Reviews: Lancome Air de Teint, Clinique Feathering Mascara, Guerlain Maxi Lash

Posted · 21 Comments

Another bunch of beauty reviews for you; this time I’m “live testing” Lancome’s new Miracle Air de Teint foundation, Clinique’s new Feathering mascara and a second mascara, a violet-hued Maxi Lash version from Guerlain. The response to these videos seems to be very good, so I’ll keep on doing them so long as there’s stuff to test out. And there’s always [...]

January Beauty Favourites

Ah, here we are again. Monthly favourites. Apologies in advance; I have been on a bit of a beauty “hiatus” this month, partly because I spent the first two weeks of it watching The Good Wife and partly because I still haven’t properly sorted out my beauty room. I don’t know where anything is and I [...]

I promised just after Christmas that I’d do a proper post on the d.j.v. Beautinizer. There’s been a bit of a delay, but here we are with the post and a proper picture! Check me out with my deathly face and weird, psychopathic stare! Why, why, why did I think that taking the photo pre-maquillage [...]

Diorshow New Look Mascara

Posted · 10 Comments

 My latest ‘big tick’ mascara is Dior’s “New Look” – I will be putting it into a video very soon, but if you want to see the effect after just one coat, have a quick re-watch of the latest video, A Dozen Red Roses.  Nice, isn’t it? A really sophisticated effect. What I like about [...]

Clinique High Lengths Mascara

Posted · 1 Comment

 I mentioned this mascara in the August Beauty Round-Up but I have recently rediscovered it. I had felt that the comb wand took a little bit of getting used to, but I am pleased to say that with an additional bit of practice, Clinique High Lengths is now one of my favourite mascaras. The wand is [...]
