You know, a little lady who`s addicted to her beauty secrets may be une femme fatale. Emphasis on fatale. Fatale to herself.
I don`t know how your story in the beauty world rolled but now that I remember how mine started…it explains a lot.
Ever since I was a little lady my mother was always telling me that natural beauty is the most beautiful and powerful. That I should not over react, as I sometimes tended to do, with make-up and beauty products. As a young woman my mother looked exactly like I do today. Better yet, I look almost identical with my mother in her 30`s.
We even have the same name just to make everything seem more Wes Anderson like. In my mid 20`s I was living under the impression that she did not influence me that much. Even though I was not using make-up at all (check 2010/2011/2012 on the blog), I was not dying my hair (never did, never will, lucky natural brunette bitch) and I was always matching my lingerie and socks with my outfit. Delusional, I thought that was all me.
One day, a year and a half ago, I was in Arad, at one of my parents soiree`s, when discretely mother approaches me – `You should use some blush and mascara for Christ`s sake`
!???@!@?! – wtf ?!@?!@?# You said that natural beauty is the greatest.
Sure. But I always said that some beauty secrets put natural beauty in a more shimmering light. You always hear only the half of the idea.

That was the moment when my journey in the beauty world finally started. A little bit late I might add, hence my lack of dexterity – but since then things got pretty intense. I mean, it`s not enough to have someone to beautify you. I have to succeed in doing it on my own also. The problem is that I have two left hands.
After months of intense training and beauty secrets testing, I can finally emit some expert like opinions and today, I bring to you one wonder mascara: the Volume Effet Faux Cils from Yves Saint Laurent.
You know, I have this recognizable make-up – red lips, cat eye, blush. But what really gives the mysterious and sensual touch of my make-up signature is mascara.
Have been testing it for the last few weeks and my lashes look like they are Betty Catroux`s. As in, pretty mysterious and decadent without being too flashy.
