New year - new means! I must say that during the holidays I yearned a little for cool beauty discoveries, and I hasten to finally share the first selection of 2023

Cils Booster Lash Revitalizing Serum and Lash Idôle, Lancôme

Agree, sometimes you want your makeup to look as natural as possible (so that it seems that this is your natural beauty, and not the merit of cosmetics). Lancôme has a duet that will help you achieve what you want.Start with Cils Booster Lash Revitalizing Serum.

According to the brand's research, eyelashes become stronger, thicker and more voluminous in 4 weeks thanks to a formula with concentrated amino acids, hyaluronic acid and, of course, rose cells (no Lancôme product comes out without the participation of this beautiful flower).

You only need to apply serum twice a day along the lash line and directly to the hairs. If you are going to do makeup, then the product is advised to distribute 1.5 minutes before mascara. Believe me, the procedure will not seem burdensome to you, because it is a pleasure to once again hold in your hands a luxurious golden bottle in which a valuable liquid was enclosed.

After applying the serum, you can plan further steps. If my goal is natural beauty, I wear Hypnôse L’Absolu de Noir mascara.

For a bright make-up (smoky eyes or eyes lined with a liner), you can take Lash Idôle mascara, which, obviously, is difficult to remain modest.

NYX Professional Makeup line of vegan cosmetics

NYX Cosmetics great products never disappeared from my makeup bag, but thanks to veganware - the "month" when we give special support to cosmetics manufacturers without ingredients of animal origin - I kind of rediscovered this brand for myself .

For example, I can't imagine my evening make-up without the Ultimate eyeshadow base, although I used to consider this stage in the work of makeup artists superfluous. Oh what a waste! The shadows on the base lie in a completely different way - just fine - and, most importantly, they look brighter and more attractive on the eyelids.

The second discovery is the Epic Ink Liner, with which I did makeup, even while quarantined at home, it is so good and easy to use.

The texture is right - not too liquid and not too viscous. To paint over the space between the eyelashes with its help is as easy as to outline the lines of future arrows.

The Colossal Curl Bounce Mascara, Maybelline NY

Hands up if you love Maybelline NY mascara, I'm sure there are a lot of us! And we have great news for you and me: the brand has released a new mascara The Colossal Curl Bounce.

In stores you will recognize it by its bright yellow and white packaging. But personally, I order funds via the Internet - it's easier, and I spend the time that I would have spent shopping on a walk in the park. However, back to the carcass. It is stated, and the shape of the brush confirms that the tool adds not only length and volume to the eyelashes, but also an additional bend. In general, you may not need a curler anymore.

Hyaluronic tone serum Alliance Perfect, L'Oréal Paris

Decorative cosmetics with caring ingredients is the most dynamically developing trend, which I already wrote about at the beginning of the year. It is quite natural that we expect the greatest similarity with skin care products from tonal products. L’Oréal Paris anticipated our desires by adding 1% hyaluronic acid to the new Alliance Perfect foundation serum, worthy of care products.

Agree, it's nice to know that when you go to work negotiations or a meeting with a friend in a cafe in full dress, your skin is provided not only with an even tone and attractive appearance, but also with active care in the form of hydration.

Eau de parfum Si Passione Éclat, Giorgio Armani

I met the classic version of Si Passione in Paris. Then Giorgio Armani threw a grand party with an enchanting dress code: it was important to come to the event in red. Believe me, it was a complete visual delight!

This January, I want to wear a bright scarlet dress again. The reason was the release of the flanker Si Passione - the version of Éclat.

Judging by the composition, the fragrance has become more concise, because the number of ingredients has been halved - from 12 to 6. Blackcurrant accord, bergamot, rose and vanilla were inherited from the previous version, but white musk is an innovation of perfumers. I feel that spring will not wait for the fragrance on my dressing table - I can’t resist and go out with it before the onset of warm days.

Go-Clutch, Valentino

I confess: I like to prepare gifts for loved ones in advance. It doesn’t always work out, but when I manage to find a surprise in a few months, I feel somehow calmer - I know that I don’t have to rush to invent and then look for the embodiment of the idea in the store. So be it, looking ahead, I will share one super idea by March 8th.This is a Valentino powder and lipstick set that looks like a stylish bright clutch.

A miracle thing visually can really replace a handbag (after all, it comes with a gold chain). I think I need to take several of these clutches at once - after all, I will definitely keep one for myself to wear it with a cocktail dress for evening events. After all, sooner or later life will return to normal.
