A few new beauty items have crossed the transom…
Glossier, BOY BROW
Goodbye unruly brows. This pomade thickens, shapes, and conditions whether your brows are full or sparse. Comes in clear or coloured (brown, black, blond).
Yes, it’s really as good as everyone says it is.
We’re inspired by healthy, face-framing brows and consider brow grooming the last crucial step to heading out into the world: brush your teeth, brush your brows, and then maybe brush your hair.
La Roche-Posay, RESPECTISSIME MULTI-DIMENSIONS MASCARA
I’ve tried designer mascaras, natural mascaras, and drugstore mascaras.
Although they are well-known as a derm skincare brand, La Roche-Posay has an under-the-radar mascara (in Canada I think they only carried one: Volume ). I’ve been loving the sensitive formula mascara and bought tube after tube. It doesn’t get a lot of hype, it doesn’t have a provocative name, but it’s great because it’s fragrance-free and thus doesn’t irritate my eyes, plus it gives the result I want.
Now there is a new mascara, Multi-Dimensions, that contains a lash revitalising serum with Argenine. This multi-benefit mascara not only enhances every lash it also fortifies weak lashes and claims a fuller fringe after 4 weeks.
This is so clever! Many of us are applying eyelash grow serums every night and applying mascara every morning. Now it’s built right in.
My lashes are not lush, so the small tight wand shape is absolutely ideal. The brush grabs every little lash and the thinner formula deposits just the right amount of product and allows you to build up thin layers. It gives very natural definition with one coat, and can go to more dramatic lengths and volume with a few more strokes. Best of all,you don’t get gloopy, spiky lashes. Just better looking ones.
As I get older, I wear less makeup. My beauty goals are glowing skin (from good skincare), and subtle —me but better —makeup. I want my mascara to emphasise my eyes, not draw attention to itself. That this one has good ingredients, is a big bonus.
This mascara has earned a permanent place in my makeup bag. I’m no longer shopping around every three months for another one to try. This is The One.
