Beauty news: Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Cat Eyes Mascara

Girls, I heard about this mascara recently. The new ‘Cat Eyes’ edition of the wonderful Colossal Volum’ mascara claims to give you a more feline look than the original by accentuating the outer lashes.

What does Maybelline say?
“Discover the new Colossal Cat Eyes mascara from Volum’ Express for wide-eyed volume. The new Flare Brush stylises lashes to a full fan of wild volume – it’s savagely sexy! Flare out lashes for a bold Cat Eye look. Collagen enriched formula for Colossal feline volume and no clumps.”
I’m so curious to try it. Hope to be blown away by this mascara.
Maybelline Colossal Volum’ Mascara is available now, priced at £7.99 (but currently £2 off in Superdrug!)

Chanel World launches in Harrods

I was on the tube today on my way back home when a big Chanel bag picture on the newspaper caught my attention. I was impressed and amazed with the news. The first thought which crossed my mind was that I had to share the news with you. So here I am.

Today, Chanel unveiled the transformed facade at Harrods in Central London. The redesigned show windows connect Karl Lagerfeld’s Fall-Winter collection with light touches of French fairy tales. It’s the first time Harrods has given over all of its most valuable, street-facing displays to a single brand. The luxury brand has taken over the famous department store and a visit there may be fully packed with good surprises.

Shoppers can also visit a one-off exhibition, called Une Promenade, on the third floor where, behind a curtain of pearl beads, they will find an enchanted garden (last seen at the Chanel spring/summer fashion show), a 2.55 exhibition showcasing the work that goes into making one of the legendary quilted handbags, a display of haute couture gowns in a replica of Coco’s apartment and an ode to the iconic Chanel No 5 perfume bottle. Une Promenade is on view for three weeks from Tuesday, September 6.

OMG! This is heaven. I will be moving home this saturday which means a hectic weekend. Hope I can manage time to visit Harrods ASAP, cos I can’t wait. 😉
