Dior Show New Look Mascara Review

You just can't go wrong with a Dior mascara. The price can do you wrong, but the mascara itself will treat you more than kindly. 

The latest proof is in the wand. The rubber nano-brush of the New Look mascara gives you complete control over application and makes precision a cinch. Even the fine stubborn lashes near your tear duct can not escape the dark side with this brush. You can also work the brush down to the very roots of your lashes for optimal volume and separation that result in va-va-voom lashes. Bigger is not necessarily better when your goal is a full lash effect.
All mascara connoisseurs (aka drugstore addicts) know that "Black" is subjective. This formula had a glossy, almost wet looking, finish due to Dior's trademarked Black Glass Pigment that adds drama by reflecting light. The formula does apply more wet and has a longer dry time than usual, so keep a lash groomer at hand in case some lashes decide to hug each each other. Once this mascara is dry it does not want to move anywhere! For a non-waterproof formula, this mascara will survive even the hottest or dreariest of days without smudging or shedding. 
I think I want to try a "new look" and get this formula in blue.

Sephora Beauty Insider 500 Point Perk: Lancome's Best of Eyes

I am not sure if this kit is still available at Sephora or online, but it has to be one of the best 500 point perks Sephora has ever put together. It is a wonderful introduction to Lancome's top selling and highest performing eye products.


-Genefique Eye Youth Activating Eye Concentrate. I have almost finished my tiny jar of this miracle worker and I can definitely tell the difference. My undereye area is less puffy and dark and feels super smooth. Performs very well under makeup as it absorbs in seconds and doesn't leave behind any residue.

-Color Design Quad with eye shadows Daylight, Off the Rack, Ciel du Soir and Sultry Mauve. The pigmentation of these shadows is sheer to light, but buildable to medium. This is a classic work/daily life orientated quad that gives a sophisticated and polished look. Sometimes subtle and understated is just what a girl needs.

-Le Crayon Khol in Black Ebony. A solid performing classic eye shadow pencil that can also be used on the waterline or smudged for a smokier look.

-Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base. Adds an extra oomph to your mascara look by adding length and separation. One of the few mascara bases that isn't impossible cover or leave lashes looking rigid.

-Hypnose Drama in Excessive Black. Lancome is known for their stellar lineup of mascaras the Hypnose Drama is one of my favourites. It adds volume and definition to the lashes without clumping or fallout.

-Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. Probably the best eye makeup remover on the market, I always come back to it. The solution is so gentle and removes every last bit of makeup without any irritation or drying. 
The deluxe sample size of these products is very generous and will last for months.
