Lancome Paris | #SayItWithYourEyes

Last month I got a very exciting invite to attend a one on one makeup session with Lancome's pro elite makeup artist Shehla Shaikh in my local Brown Thomas. It was basically going to be just me and her playing around with some makeup and having a chat. Not only that but I got to see and try the new #SayItWithYourEyes collection. Shelah has previously counted the likes of Sienna Miller and Poppy Delevingne to name just a few among her clientele so I was in very good hands.

This mascara has become a permanent fixture in my makeup bag. I hardly ever wear my false eyelashes anymore when a few weeks I wouldn't be seen without them. 

The latest edition to the Lancome mascara family boasts 20% latex which promotes longevity and high pigmentation while the 2% less wax guarantees no stiffness. The applicator brush is a nice size aswell. I don't like a brush to be too big because I find them quite messy and I don't like a brush too small because it involves A LOT of work. The Hypnose Volume-a-Porter has a standard size, super flexible head for precision application. 

The best I can describe it is that it almost feels like you are combing your lashes while coating them with a deep intense colour. The 306 bristles promise a generous and even application without overloading your eyelashes to the point where they become spiders legs. 

I have worn this mascara pretty much daily over the past few weeks and it just doesn't smudge or feel too heavy on the lashes. It is almost like a creamy texture.

In addition to all the above the Hypnose Volume-a-Porter acts as a treatment over the course of a few weeks. It's complex enriched with Lancome Native Rose Cells helps leave your natural lashes much softer and more resistant for a thicker and more dense finish. Last but not least my favourite thing about this mascara is that it has a very subtle smell of fresh roses. How amazing is that? 

When it comes to a list of priorities in a females life eyebrows are right up near the top!! I struggle to remember a time when eyebrows weren't such a huge deal. Now and again when an ancient photo of me pops up I shudder at my brows or the lack thereof. 

The Sourclis Gel were actually the first product that Shehla showed me and straight away I knew I needed it. Because this product has a gel cream consistency it just melts onto the skin and is so easy to use. It makes my brows look so much more dense and full as well as defined. 

The Sourclis Gel comes in a very impressive range of six shades, I purchased Chatain. What I like about these gels is that you can use a small amount on no makeup or natural makeup days and get a gorgeous subtle look or you can create much more dramatic and defined brows by adding more product. 


If you are the kind of woman who likes to have more minutes in bed in the morning then the Ombre Hypnose Stylo is for you!!

These cream eyeshadow sticks are super light and full of pigment. The Ombre Hypnose Stylo can be worn alone for a full colour look that lasts all do or they can be used with other colours for a more defined look. 

I love using mine along my lower lash line and in the outer v of my eyelid. They also can be used as an eyeliner for a quick and easy to achieve look. They come in eight stunning shades so there is most definitely something to suit everyones style and taste.
