For the last little while I’ve been playing around with a few goodies from Lancome – their Hypnose Star Mascara and eyeshadow palettes in Gris Fatale & Bronze Amour. If you’ve ever used Lancome products before, you know that they provide amazing results, with long lasting colour and serious drama.
I’ve used Hypnose mascara in the past, and was really excited when they added the Hypnose Star ($33) version to their lineup last year. This version features a double sided brush, which angles in towards the tip so that it can perfectly reach every lash. I love the formula of this mascara – I find that it really lengthens and volumizes my lashes, while the brush separates them nicely – the end result is gorgeous, long lashes, with no clumping. I also find that the formula is really long-lasting – it can stand up to a full day and the office and still be good to go afterwards.
Onto the palettes – these contain 5 different shades (all-over, lid, crease, highlighter and liner) which perfectly complement each other to brighten eyes and create a glam look (or the softer shades can be used for a toned-down daytime look). These shadows have a really nice pearly look to them, giving the eyes a nice shimmer. I like the long wear that they have – I found that these can be worn for hours without creasing or fading. Stay tuned for some looks I’ve created using these gorgeous palettes.
