Start a Lash Revolution

My avid reader know how much I love Sisley‘s So Intense Mascaraicon. But I have to admit, it has gotten competition.

«Brazen. Bold. Bad, bad, bad.» A new way to give your lashes the attention they deserve thanks to M∙A∙C Bold & Bad Lash. This revolutionary mascara is the ultimate product to create a 360-degree lash look from top to bottom. The dual-chamber package contains a brush for upper lashes, a brush for lower lashes AND different formulas in each. The larger brush delivers customized volume to the top, while the smaller brush creates smudge-proof definition to the bottom. Start a lash revolution!

Available online and in stores now for CHF 31.00!

MAC Pro Longwear Long-Last Lips

This summer, MAC Cosmetics introduces Pro Longwear Long-Last Lips, a brand new lip product that is specifically formulated to work overtime to seal and lock in all day moisture, without affecting colour’s vibrancy and brilliant shine. Personally speaking, I am fully convinced. The color stays on without fading but also leaves your lips comfortable for hours.

Stroke on the liquid lipstick for a rich color punch, then flip the stick and apply the clear hydrating topcoat.

Available in 15 robust, permanent shades for CHF 36.00 each.

Mariah Carey x M·A·C Returns for Christmas

mtqyotuzmju5mjk4otg5nzy5mariahcarey_mac

Mariah Carey, «songbird supreme», has once again teamed up with M·A·C Cosmetics for a second holiday-themed makeup collection. The singer has dazzled us with her songs and timeless contributions to music for decades and now brings her extraordinary glamour for the second time to an iconic makeup collection with M·A·C that’s all you’ll ever want. After a successful 2015 partnership, Carey and M·A·C are ready for round two and we are, too.

mtqyotuzmjk3mtq4mzg5mdy1

Needless to say, there is plenty of glitter incorporated into the collection itself, which includes many beautiful sparkeling products that I can absolutely recommend for the festive season. I am anyway a «smokey eyes – nude lips» type of girl and Mariah Carey x M·A·C offers everything I adore.
