Review: Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat

Hello Lovelies!

How have y'all been???

In the past I have avoided waterproof mascaras as they tend to clump on my lashes, sticking them together and just leave them feeling dry so when I was sent the Lash Genius I was a little bit sceptical because I didnt know if it would work at all but being the beauty and makeup addict I am,I had to give it a try to find out

It came with a booklet full of instrustions and pictures and all the information about Lash Genius
I found it very useful


What it is:
A clear topcoat that instantly waterproofs, refreshes, and protects any mascara all day, without drying or clumping.

What it does:
This advanced, lightweight formula glides on smooth, dries quickly, and gives your lashes a touchable, soft lacquer finish that lasts all day.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

Suggested Usage:
-Carefully apply one or two coats on top of mascara to waterproof and refresh.
-To remove, use waterproof eye makeup remover.

-Discontinue use if signs of rash or irritation appear.

-Jellified Triglycerides: Provide a creamy, lightweight texture.
-Silicone Resin: Provides long lasting hold and a waterproof film.
-High Melting Point Wax: Provides high definition and lasting effects.

Isododecane, Polyethylene, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Synthetic Wax, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butylhydroxyhydrocinnamate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

After a month of testing the Lash Genius I must say Im wowed by this baby.
I don't really need waterproof mascara but for those that do this is a great choice. I think its reasonable to buy the Lash Genius alongside your favourite mascara and you can use it as and when you need to. Lash Genius would be super to use if you have watery eyes,on your wedding day,when going swimming,to the beach and to the gym when you getting all sweaty

Lash Genius is  also perfect for  those spring/summer months for someone like me when my eyes get watery due to hayfever. It is really a great product for those who tend to rub their eyes frequently or sweat a lot

I tested Lash Genius at home in the shower and it stayed put,my mascara did not budge at all

Doesnt change colour of your mascara
Doesnt change consistency of mascara
It was super easy to remove with any eye makeup remover
Didnt irritate my eyes
My lashes didnt feel dry
My lashes still looked fresh and fly after a 15hour long day

I have nothing bad to say about Lash Genius

Lash Genius is a great product and I would recommend everyone to try it especially if you are in search of a waterproof mascara

You can buy it $21 from Sephora for those in America
For my UK Chicas you can purchase Lash Genius from Cult Beauty for £14.00
Or you can check out direct from Anastasia Beverley Hills

Product was sent to me by PR for review purposes.
I was not paid to do this review

Review: Lancome Mousse Eclat Cleanser

Hello Lovelies!

Today I bring you a review of the Lancome Mousse Eclat an Express Clarifying Self-foaming Cleanser. I have had this cleanser for almost 4months now and its high time I put my 2cents in

Normal to Combination skin
Rediscover purity. Your skin breathes,naturally and beautiful
The light-as-air foam activates with water to create a truly luxurious cleanser. Its fresh formula gently cleanses away makeup and impurities to clarify the complexion leaving your skin soft,radiant and healthy looking

This clarifying mouse cleanser water-activates into a rich foam to gently cleanse, revitalize and clarify the complexion.

To enhance its cleansing and clarifying action, the Lancôme Laboratories have formulated MOUSSE ÉCLAT with highly effective, natural active ingredients to help exfoliate the skin, while preserving its youthful radiance: Papaya, known for its hydrating properties, helps to moisturize and soften the skin, while Pineapple, known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties, helps to calm and soothe.

 USAGE: Daily, morning and evening.
1. Moisten your face with water.
2. Apply the cleanser all over your moistened face in light strokes working from the centre of the face outwards, being sure to avoid the eye area.
3. Use small circular movements all over the face to cleanse, paying particular attention to the T-zone.
4. Rinse with water.

I love that this cleanser comes in  a white pump bottle making it easier to use. The pump helps in controlling the amount that you want. The bottle is 200ml  and will last you maybe a good 4months or so using it daily as you only need a very small amount

Skin Type
This cleanser according to Lancome is catered to Normal/Combo skin which is just perfect for me. I have normal skin overall with an oily t-zone.

The scent is very fresh and slightly fruity which Im unable to really pick up but its something lovely

Does it work?
I always fuss about cleansers that I use on my skin. Im always looking for a cleanser that balances my normal/combo type without stripping it dry and breaking me out. This product self activates into a light airy foam when it is pumped out and lathers nicely on a wet face,it rinses quickly and does not leave any residue. The cleanser is very gentle on the skin,I feel it does the job and leaves my skin clean,smooth and brighter. The Lancome Mousse Eclat did not break me out or irritate my skin at any point since I started using it. It does a good job of removing dirt and makeup although I always use wipes prior to using the Lancome cleanser

At a price tag of £21.00 it doesnt come cheap but hey ho it does the job properly and last a good 4months plus with everyday use.

Would I buy Again and Recommend
Yes,yes yes I would  recommend giving it a try because its a good cleanser. Im definitely going to repurchase again when I finish my current one. Its become a firm favourite of mine

Where to buy
Lancome website,Lancome counters at Boots,House of Fraser,John Lewis, Selfridges,FeelUnique website etc depending on where you live.

Have you tried this Cleanser or any Lancome Cleansers
What is your favourite Cleanser

Have a wonderful day Chicas
Stay Beautiful&Blessed
Much Love
