Stumbling around Downtown Toronto, and trying to keep out of the rain, I found myself in Sephora’s Canadian flagship store – oops! And as it was raining, it made sense to stay inside…well, that’s my excuse for spending almost two and a half hours in there! (Watch out for a haul video coming soon along with a fab giveaway on YouTube!) What it DID do is give me loads of time to discover all the latest, newest launches, some of which aren’t set to hit our shores for a while yet, including today’s choice for Currently Obsessed.
This week’s obsession is set to be an ongoing one, I’m so blown away by it. Giorgio Armani’s Black Ecstasy Mascara. It’s all kinds of awesome all in one sleek black tube. Volumising, lengthening, curling and intense definition, all in one coat – although you can build it up even further with two. Just one ‘pump” – although you should never pump your mascara wand – is enough for both lashes – no need to dip into the tube in-between eyes to load up.
I’m totally in love with this mascara – it makes me look like I’m wearing false lashes without all the pfaff of trimming, glueing and positioning. And so much easier on the lashes too. And if I really wiggle the brush really deep into the lash roots, it lifts the lashes so much I can even dispense with the lash curler! It launched here on 1st November, so it’s available for us UK gals too!
And yes, in my utter excitement to buy it, I ended up with the brown shade (Wood 03) instead of black, but it’s so lush on my lashes that I’m prepared to stick with it!
