Create a dramatically different eye look with the Clarins Be Long Mascara, the ultimate tool for lengthening and strengthening the lashes. Not only does the innovative formula from Clarins visibly lengthen the look of your lashes, but it also contains the 'Be Long Lash Complex', which enhances lash growth every day. This is possible with a combination of two active ingredients: Matrikine, a peptide for accelerated growth, and Panthenol for added strength. Lashes are coated with highly concentrated carnauba wax and filmogenic polymers, which boost the natural keratin in the lashes while providing intense colour, length and curl. Its patented lash-boosting wand is exclusively designed to go infinitely further. The small, elastomer Be Long Mascara brush is tilted to enable you to reach, sculpt and enhance every lash, and has been developed in a special turbine shape to grasp lashes and coat them from root to tip.

Mascara and a gel liner are my two essential products in makeup and I usually don't leave my house without it.
I like square shaped package of mascara, so I don't have to catch it every time I put it on the table. Package is a matte gold, very elegant. Love the small letter "C" on the top side.
Brush is slightly bend on the right side, the brush is firm, with a combination of a short and longer bristles so it curls even the smallest lashes in corners of the eyes. Color appears intense deep black on lashes which I love.
Clarins Be Long mascara has a new growth activating formula - Be Long Complex which will increase length of the lashes in 4 weeks for about 1 mm. Since I don't use mascara every day I really can't say is it true, but it sounds interesting that's for sure. :)
I always prefer bigger brushes when it comes to mascaras, but I have to admit Be Long does the job done pretty well for a small size brush. It lengths lashes, add a volume and separates every lash in just one coat.
Clarins - Be Long is not waterproof and it takes off very easily with a micellaire water or any other makeup remover.
On the picture below you can see how lashes appear in just one coat of Be long mascara.

I have a combination skin which is oily on T zone especially during the warmer weather. My skin looks very grey, uneven, faint, washed out you can call it what every you like, but the truth is I look horrible in the morning. :D So I was searching for a good cream/fluid/serum which will thick all the boxes I needed in one product.
Every face cream I used so far wasn't good enough for me after awhile. So I never used any face cream to it's end. Never.
I red a lot about the Nuxellence Jeunesse before I decided to buy it. I really love Nuxe, and every product I try so far is amazing to me. This product promises fine lines and wrinkles, even complexion, it activates microcirculation ... so I had plenty reasons to try it.
After almost 3 months of usage and completaly used bottle (!!) I can say for sure that Nuxellence Jeunesse fluid is my HG product when it comes to face care. I used it every morning and night on a clean skin. My skin looked even, healthier, more glowing and grey washed out look was a past. It maybe sounds too good to be true, but I'm very happy with this product.
Although this product is a fluid, I haven't used any face creams afterwards because fluid was enough for my skin. If your skin needs more hydration after you apply this fluid, I suggest you go with the anti age face creams for a better effect.
Nuxellence Jeunesse smells amazing! Main flower is a passionflower among other scents. I'm not a big fan of smelly face products, but I really enjoyed applying this fluid.
It absorbs very fast, leaving my skin very healthy looking. It is also amazing as a makeup base. It doesn't contain a SPF and it is suitable for every skin type, and any age range.
Nuxellence Jeunesse needs to be used for a month at least so you can notice any difference on skin. But the longer you use this product it is better. I applied it on my face and a neck. I usually squeeze a pump or two for my face and neck.
Bottle contains 1.3 .oz of product which looks very luxurious in hand. I love the mechanism and how the pump comes out when I turn the upper part on right and go back in opposite direction.
Color of this fluid is a milky beige and it is a bit thinner in texture.
Considering very dark color on bottle, It is possible to see how much product is left in the bottle, you just have to use a little force. As you can see I used it completely. No leftovers. Which is great, because I know for sure I used product to it's end. And I will definitely repurchase this product again.

 GIVENCHY Dahlia Noir L'Eau Eau de Toilette Spray 125ml
GIVENCHY Dahlia Noir L'Eau Eau de Toilette Spray 125ml
Made up of air-light contrasts, the GIVENCHY Dahlia Noir L'Eau Eau de Toilette is the scent of a fleur fatale suffused with delicacy. Dahlia Noir L'Eau is inspired by the imaginary dahlia noir flower. The fragrance is a vision of GIVENCHY elegance as curated by Riccardo Tisci, a scent that reveals the most delicate part of the Dahlia Noir personality with a distinctive chypre trail. L'Eau presents a sparkling, more radiant aspect to the complex beauty of the original fragrance. Endlessly luxurious, Dahlia Noir L'Eau creates light out of darkness. A crystal clear accord of citron and neroli express their crisp, green accents in the first impression. A heart of feminine rose petal exerts a keen sense of femininity, while a couture dry down of patchouli, cedar and musk underpins the brightness with a hint of discreet sensuality. Top Notes: Citron, Neroli Heart Notes: Rose Petal Base Notes: Patchouli, Cedar, Musk

Oh Dahlia, my dear Dahlia Noir ... or should I call you green? Why oh why you didn't keep your signature scent of iris and than combined it with a green notes and citrus if you wanted to be L'eau? But now, your not near good as your prior version. However, Mr. Fracncois Demachy grant you elements of your cousin Eaudemoiselle de Givenchy, and some elements of your ex best friend Chloe L'eau and yet, you thought your playing on originality. But guess what? Your cousin and your ex best friend were way ahead of you. If I just knew you 2 years ago, I wouldn't write like this, about you now.
But I must admit, your special, because your nothing like your cognates Chance eau Tendre, Omnia Coral or maybe Miracle, but unfortunately your not original enough for me.
I love how you behave during the day, your soft, and warm, than you become a bit edgy and bold ...but always "green", and I love you because of that and I'm happy when I'm wearing you, but than I start to wonder, did you maybe wanted to be wear by other gender occasionally?
Even no one asked me about you, I have to admit your tough, that patchouli really keeps you alive for 7 hours straight. I'm very surprised my Dahlia Noir because your L'eau - but your one h.ell of L'eau! :)

Absolutely Flawless Concealer is another great product from the Too Faced brand. It is VERY thick in texture, it doesn't dry under eye area, but it tends to go into the pores if your under eye area is not moisture enough. It has a very high coverage, and you really need a tiny amount of it to cover the dark circles. I think it will last forever so it is very good value for the money.

 Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml
Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille Eau de Parfum Spray 50ml
To paraphrase Freud, it's not the evil who are full of regrets, but the good. Both the devil and vanilla like black. No sentimentality here! Within each of us, this mellowness grows stronger and more refined thanks to contrasting wood notes. Our Fragrance Expert says: "Un Bois Vanille is vanilla seen through a prism where the spicy, creamy, cherry and woody facets of the ingredient are all intensified to create a vanilla taken to the extreme. It straddles the line between hedonism and cloying sickliness quite dangerously so only those who adore truly delicious perfumes need apply."

In my opinion the best smell through the Christmas time it is definitely a Vanilla. I never was a vanilla type of person, because they always made me sick. And last year I tried Un Bois Vanille from SL, and I fall in love with it. A LOT. I guess it was at the right place in the right moment. This vanilla is a perfect scent during the winter time and those warm cozy nights, it is reminding me on Christmas very much, when your cookies are baking, and you drinking a hot chocolate, wearing a big sweater while you sitting down on the couch and watching tv with your loving ones. I love that feeling, and I can't wait for the Christmas to arrive so I can enjoy this fragrance properly. A, warm, sweat vanilla (not too much), almost decent but noticeable. Perfect. And you will love it. The only thing that I would like is that this fragrance could last a bit longer.

Finally a modern version of Shalimar which suits me well. I love to smell original Shalimar from the distance, because on my skin it wasn't so gorgeous. But after 85 years I can finally say that I have my new Shalimar to wear proudly!
Shalimar Parfum Initial smell gorgeous! It is a warm, creamy bouquet of iris perfectly blended with a patchouli and a vetiver, vanilla, tonka bean and caramel works great as a base notes to warmth the whole composition. Very strong and I would say a fragrance with an attitude.
This is a gorgeous chyper fragrance and it will show you all the beauty of it's smell during the colder weather, while during the warmer weather it could be a pain in the head :)
because it doesn't smell equally during the hot and the cold weather.
For warmer weather I suggest to try a L'eau version of this fragrance. It is a lighter and much more wearable version of the Shalimar Parfum Initial.
Definitely my "go to" fragrance over the Autumn/Winter! <3

For the last 4 months I'm literally struggling with my itchy scalp I was really upset I didn't know what to do, and decided to give this product a try. I'm only using this product from this range, nothing else. after I wash my hair, and while it is still damp I add this product on my scalp on every 5 cm of the scalp. It has a citrus smell, but you don't notice it when you dry your hair.
I must admit that this product works, finally something good! My scalp was itching me after one day after I washed my hair, and with this product my scalp starts to itch after 4 days, which is great because I have to wash my hair after 4 days so I suppose itching is normal. I highly recommend this product, if you have the same problem. Life saver.

Powerful, commanding, and indomitable. Juliette Has a Gun Citizen Queen is the charismatic woman who reigns over us all. She is impossible to describe, a beauty in her very own league. You cannot help but worship her arresting presence. Her scent is that of a Bulgarian Rose, but it is a darkened, feral take on the bloom. The addictive addition of aldehydes along with leather and labdanum hark back to old school perfumery, making for a scent that stands at the crossroads between new and old. Mysterious and resonating, this powdery chypre works to hypnotise the unwitting Romeo. And once the Citizen Queen wants something, not a single thing can stand in her way! Notes: Leather, Aldehypes, Labdanum, Iris, Amber.

This perfume was my all time favorite ... and then, I got pregnant.. And love just disappear. It was horrible. I was so unhappy, but 3 years later, I try it again, and that was it, love at the second sight :) I was so happy, because this fragrance of all JHG fragrances is my favorite. If you are a fan of a woody, a powdery, kind of milky, romantic but not overpowering scents, with just a hint of an iris and leather, this one would fit you perfectly. This fragrance can be wore through the whole year, it is very flattering and wearable. At the same time very romantic,and with an attitude. Gorgeous! Love it! And I bet you will too!

Be audacious with the Yves Saint Laurent Manifesto Eau de Parfum, a proclamation of absolute femininity. The free-spirited couture fragrance is as spontaneous, passionate and intuitive as the heroine who wears it. She says yes to style, beauty and taking risks. She says yes to YSL and an irrepressible allure that refuses to be bound by tradition. Radiant and full of life, the YSL Manifesto woman is a statement all of her own. The Manifesto perfume is game between woman and light: green notes ensure modernity, jasmine brings extreme femininity, and tonka bean leaves an impression of dazzling sensuality. A fragrance that is by turns effervescent and soft, yet directional, excessive and serene. The ultimate companion to an unbridled heart. Top Notes: Bergamot, Blackcurrant, Green Notes Heart Notes: Lily of the Valley, Jasmine Base Notes: Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Tonka Bean

I'm pleasantly surprised with this fragrance. It is so warm, powdery with just a hint of freshness. Not overpowering. It is just perfect for the autumn and the winter, it's full potential is revealed through the colder weather, and I'm just loving to smell it..
this is a gorgeous bouquet of jasmine, which is mixed perfectly with green notes, and this powdery smell of tonka beans and vanilla makes it perfect to wear by day or night. A, true femininity scent. It doesn't have a huge aura, but it is noticeable.. it lasted for about 6 hours on my skin, which is great. This one would be a perfect gift for Christmas, I'm sure!

This powder is another amazing product from the Too Faced brand, and I'm loving it. It is definitely my HG (holy grail) of all foundation powders ever.
The package is a plastic, round shaped, just simply and gorgeous, I love black packaging of beauty products. Under the cap there is a mirror, and under the powder you can find a velure sponge, that can be used wet or dry. And it weights 9 grams.
This powder is very smooth, it has a bit of a fallout, but that is normal for those kind of foundation. I tried a lot of another foundation powders, and Too Faced works best for me.
It keeps my face matte for about 8 hours, I have a combination skin, and my face looks very natural when I'm wearing it. It has a light coverage, and it is great for the summer when we are wearing a lighter makeup. It contains a SPF15, it doesn't dry my skin, and haven't had any reaction to it.
This velure sponge that comes with this product is very soft, and can be used, but I prefer to use it dry, because as a damp it can be a bit cakey on the face.
