Hello Everyone,

You all know the purpose of my blog is to share information and have I got some news for you today! So, there's a company called L'Oreal Luxe and they have various luxury brands under their umbrella, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent and Lancome, to name a few. Now, the good news is that this company is in Nigeria and products from Yves Saint Laurent, and recently, Lancome can now be purchased in Nigeria! Products ranging from fragrance to skin and beauty! Where? You ask... Essenza! Essenza is that popular perfume store I am pretty sure most of you have noticed at the Palms Lekki and also Ikeja Mall? Yup, there's an ACTUAL YSL makeup stand at the Essenza store in the Palms, with Touché Eclat and Rouge Volupte lipsticks all available!

Today I am going to review a product from one of these brands! Don't think I've ever reviewed a mascara on the blog before, or have I? I could be wrong.. Anyways this time I'd like to recommend a mascara that's worth having in your makeup stash.

This is the 'Hypnôse Mascara' by Lancome. I like to think I am pretty certain what I expect of a really good mascara. I want one that will lengthen and give volume to my lashes, doesn't flake and isn't clumpy. I was discussing with a friend just yesterday, that you really do need to try out a few brand offerings of a particular product before you can decide the factors that determine a 'good' product for you. By 'product' I mean lipstick, foundation, powder, etc. By 'factors', I mean how you'd prefer your matte lipstick to perform on your lips, if you prefer sticky, thick or satin-type lipglosses etc.

Lancome Hypnôse Mascara - N6,500*
You see all my factors I mentioned above as my determining factors for a good mascara? This one ticks all the boxes!

I have used it every single day since I got it, it's definitely become a staple product for me. It really lengthens and adds volume to my lashes. Doesn't sting, doesn't clump up your lashes and does not flake. It is a true black, you know there's some mascaras advertised as 'black' but end up being a really 'dark grey', I hate those! lol

Where to buy
Essenza Stores nationwide
Price: N6,500

Listen, our makeup junkie lives are going to get a LOT easier very soon! With all these brands coming in, I'm just thinking.. IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Hope you all enjoyed this post!
