Matte Lip Shaker €22.50
Adding my second Matte lip Shaker to my collection. This beautiful creamy lipstick applies smoothly and with ease. The shape of the sponge applicator makes application precise. I gently shake shake shake and voila… the sponge applicator is covered with the creamiest nude shade with light pink undertones. This shade below is Beige Vintage 270. I can say with confidence this did not dry my lips out and it was long lasting. When it did begin to wear off, it faded uniformly. I think this is the perfect classic nude shade and a must have in every budding beauty gurus makeup bag.

The Monsieur collection celebrates Big brows. This collection offer four shades ranging from Blonde to Ebony. There is no denying my love for big natural brows.I like my brows to look like hair. These brow chubby crayons sculpt and even out brows. I like to use the shade Brown, to fill in my brows. This adds depth and thickness while allowing them to remain bushy and untamed. Onced filled in, I use the brush provided to gentle buffer out any harsh lines. Monsieur Big Brow €20
The chubby Monsieur highlighter is my secret weapon when it comes to adding highlight to my brows bones. I swipe this under the arch of my brow to add an instant lift. This highlighter also comes with a brush on the opposite side which make blending extremely easy and precise. This highlighter is also the perfect shape for applying highlight down the center of my nose and to my cupid’s bow. These two products are kept in my handbag for easy touch ups throughout the day, due to their multipurpose functions. Monsieur Big Highlighter €20
As this collection is about creating drama – a dramatic eye is needed. Monsieur Big marker is an ultra flexible liner that glides along the lashes, leaving an intensely black eye catching line. This liner has different sides including a sharp chiselled tip making any cat’s eye imaginable easy. With minimum effort I find I can formulate a sleek black line across my lashes.

Monsieur Big Mascara is the latest addition to the lancome mascara family. It features a wavy brush for instant volume.I love how dark this mascara formula Is. Lifting and curling my lashes, bringing them to life. On days I choose to wear false lashes, I apply this mascara to my own lashes first. Then for an extra Oomph I apply another coat once I have applied my false lashes. This mascara adds a dramtic finish and blends my lashes with strip lashes effortlessly. Monsieur Big Mascara €27

Lancome have designed a bronzing compact powder that is designed to create a blurring and radiant effect to the skin. Formulated with powdered rose petals, vitamins, antioxidants and caffeine.
