There are some beautiful things coming from Guerlain this season and I’ve got some images to share with you along with a look at and review of the new Mascara. Cils d’Enfer Maxi Lash is a Volume creating and curl scultping mascara that comes in very classy packaging. It’s simple, stylish and classic.
The brush is fairly standard looking, which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned as I can’t stand huge brushes and I’m not the biggest fan of odd shaped mascara brushes…
Despite looking fairly standard it’s actually been quite carefully designed to catch each lash and separate and it’s all bevelled and faceted to create your look.
I’ll show you the mascara in action then I’ll tell you what I liked and didn’t like about it.
Okay, so I love how black it is, and I love how I don’t get it on my eyelids when I apply it because it hasn’t got a massive brush. I also love how it makes my lashes look thick and striking even when I’m looking down, they still look long.
I also love how the when applying to my bottom lashes it doesn’t go underneath my lashes, it just goes where I want it to. I also like how it’s easy to apply with a very light touch. When I apply mascara to my bottom lashes, I simply want them to look black, I don’t like heavy bottom lashes, this is easy to apply without my bottom lashes looking too long or thick. It stays put all day, and doesn’t flake off over the course of the day.
I only have one negative really with this mascara, and it’s really nit picking, but it’s worth pointing out that when I apply this I really do have to apply with care because I find that if I’m a bit haphazard or too heavy handed it can clump. I don’t mind taking a little care with this though, it doesn’t exactly add much time to my routine! The mascara is available in two shades, Noir and Violet and retails at £22.
The rest of the Spring collection is really lovely looking too. Here’s a quick run down…
Guerlain KissKiss Gloss in #870 Cherry Pink and #849 Fizzy Mango. £18.90
Guerlain Liquid eyeliner in Noir Ebene (Not a Ltd Edition) £22.05.
Guerlain Rouge Automatique in 600 Ballade & 601 Romance and Shine Automatique in 761 Flirt and 762 Rendez-Vous £22.05
Then there are two Eye Shadow Palettes. Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Spring in 501 Attrape-Coeur £34.20
Guerlain Ecrin 4 Couleurs Spring in 502 Coupe De Foudre £34.20
And last but not least the Guerlain Meteorites Perles Do Paradis £38.70
A very beautiful collection, I like that they have catered for different tastes and colourings by having a pinky purple theme and a coral and green theme. Personally I’d like the two coral lipsticks and the Coupe De Foudre Eyeshadows, they just look so stunning.
Anything take your fancy? The collection is available now and I recommend Escentual (but I’m not affiliated in any way!).
