I'm so sorry for not blogging for four days. Shame on me. I had exams, but here is finally a new post! 
And a good one, because I found the best mascara I ever tried. And some gorgeous looking eyeshadows. Meet the Ecran 1 Couleur and the Cils D'Enfer So Volume from Guerlain!

Let's start with this little miracle worker. The Maxi Lash So Volume (or Cils D'enfer So Volume) is a new mascara from Guerlain. 

The package is beautiful and stylish. A clean rectangular shape in black with a gold plate in the middle. Inscripted with 'Guerlain'. Love it: it's simple, yet has that little extra touch. 
The applicator is plastic, with little short bristles. Which are longer at one side (for the outer lashes).

What does it promise?
 "Cils d’Enfer So Volume intensifies and enhances the eyes. Sophisticated variation of the mascara phenomenon, it delivers incredible instant volume, of a deep black. From the first sweep of the brush, the gentle, creamy and elastic formula creates significantly thicker lashes. Infused with a conditioning action to protect the lashes, it is enriched with adhesive oils to prevent running or smudging and ultra-glossy oils for an intense black. Its fine elastomer brush weaves in to easily catch and precisely coat lashes one by one – even the shortest and those at the very corners of the eye – to offer sensational curve. Lashes are coated and sculpted to perfection, with no risk of excess. Stunning captivating volume, magnetic black."

Seriously, it does all of that. I found my holy grail mascara!
I tried a lot of different mascaras and this one is by far the best. It gives me volume, length and a curl. That's just more than I could have ever hoped for with my little tiny lashes! It also stays perfectly on the lashes. It rained today, and I had no smudges, not even one. 
So I'm really, really enthusiastic about this one. If you ever want to try a high-end mascara, choose this one, you will not regret it.

The packaging of the écran 1 couleur is so pretty! You know I have a thing for pretty packages, and Guerlain is one of my favorite beauty brands when it comes to that. They make every product look so luxurious. 
They look like little bars of gold, but even better because it has eyeshadow in it! There is also a little foam applicator with one blunt side and one with a 'sharp' tip.

These are the colors, from the top to the bottom:
01 Taupe Secret
02 Brownie & Clyde
03 Blue's Brothers.

I like all three colors. The Taupe Secret has a metallic finish and the two others are matte. As you can see they're really well pigmented. I wish I was better at applying eyeshadow, so I could blend Taupe Secret and Brownie & Clyde into one eyelook. Would be pretty! They are very complimentary.

Overall I'm super-enthusiastic about the Cils D'Enfer, best mascara I have ever tried. The eyeshadows are also very well pigmented, so I'm one happy kid!

What do you think about these products? Do you like the packaging too?

Love, Rani
