Lashes & Brows

Let us discuss today, Lashes and Brows. I thought I would share with you some current favourites in my make-up kit, both new and old. For me, lashes and brows sometimes come secondary to lipstick, eyeliner and foundation. But really they are what frame our face, so it's about time some extra attention was paid.

I have tried many many mascaras over the years. I don't have the longest or fullest lashes so am always on the hunt for the perfect product. I often find a mascara that I think is ok and that does the job. But recently I discovered Lancôme's Hypnôse Drama and it has brought my lashes to a whole new level. This gives the false lash effect without wearing false lashes. I think if you have long eyelashes already, this wouldn't be the mascara for you. But if like me, you are in need of help in the lash department, I cannot recommend this enough. I'm pretty sure I will be buying this for a long time to come.

I've often looked at lash treatments but not been entirely convinced that they would work. However, I have recently been sent MayLash lash treatment to try out, so I am ready to face my doubts. MayLash is a Natural Eyelash Serum and is used to encourage eyelash growth, using 100% natural ingredients. After removing make-up, the idea is to paint a thin line of the solution to the base of the upper eyelids, perfect to use just before going to bed. Now I have to say that I have only just started to use this treatment and it is recommended to be used for a good four to eight weeks to see results... so check back here in a month or two and I will edit this post with my thoughts.

And finally my eyebrows. I must admit since having a fringe cut in several years ago, my brows do not always receive the attention they deserve. But I do always lightly pencil my brows after combing, with Chanel's Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil which I use in a medium brown colour. My latest addition, to keep the shape and colour intact is this Shavata Brow Tamer. The lightweight, clear gel is produced in an easy to use click pen and can be used over pencil or powder.

Do you have any favourite eye products to share?


  1. Laura Mercier's Brow Definer has been a no fail Holy Grail for me, after years of trying to get a natural-yet-accented look with pencils, and not trusting powders to stay put and work.

    It's a very firm wax/gel in a little pot. It's so easy and fast to do a...somehow noticeable yet undetectable job with the brand's own angled brow definer brush. The little pot is $20 US, but it's going to last me for at least two years! I'm a medium/dark brunette, and I use the Soft color, which is just right.

    I'm afraid I sound like an advertisement, but I'm just so pleased to have the brow answer I'd been wishing for, because they are so essential for giving some color and definition to my face.

  2. aww this sounds fab! I really want to try out a lash treatment but I've never known which to go for or where to start!

  3. I have fringe like you and sometimes I wonder if it's necessary to fill in my brows, but I feel it just brings a refined look so I do it quite often these days. I'm happy to know about what you use because I just use a crayon eye liner :). I hope the lash treatment goes well!

  4. I think I'm still yet to find my perfect mascara. And my eyebrows are so dark that all I need is a gel to keep them in place. I might have to purchase a brow tamer like the Shatava one you use! That would be my perfect brow tool!
