Mad Eyes Brown Framer

I have the Brow Framer in 02 Brown and it’s great. Here’s what the shade looks like.

I love this pen. It uses a hybrid formula with micro-fibres suspended in a coloured gel, designed to seamlessly blends into the brows to increase volume or simply tidy and set in place. It is quite versatile.

The formula features beeswax, cotton extract and D-panthenol, which you will also find in the Mad Eyes mascara. This combination works to treat the brow hair for thicker and more filled out brows the longer you wear it.

The rubber brush is quite similar to the Tom Ford men’s brow groomer*.  It is an ergonomic applicator that shapes the brows and helps distribute the brow fibres uniformly.

Contrast Shadow Duo

I have the shade which is referred to as Aubergine at Selfridges, and has a light champagne shade on one end (copper plum) and a deep burgundy shade on the other (red plum).

Here are the swatches:

The formula is stunning. It glides on really easily, you have a (very) quick bit of play time to blend, and then is sets firmly in place and doesn’t budge. It’s a great longwear eye colour.

Guerlain Mad Eyes Mascara – Before & After

I think Guerlain’s biggest focus for this collection is the mascara, which is understandable because Guerlain mascaras are amazing!! I love them – I think my favourite is the Guerlain Maxi Lash So Volume*.


The new Mascara promises +112% instant volume. It aims to deliver multi-dimensional volume, lash by lash buildable coverage and opaque colour. Most interestingly, it also offers all the results of a lash serum.

After four months of use you could expect longer, thicker and even curlier lashes. This would mean you’d have to use it very consistently, but as far as I’m concerned, I love it when the elements of care are included.

The formula features:

  • BEESWAX – coats each lash for a clean, no-clump lash line and creamy, easy to build formula
  • COTTON EXTRACT – works on the lashes on two levels firstly to smooth surface fibres & repair small chinks in the lashes, and also work on the inside to strengthen
  • D-PANTHENOL – gives the mascara resistance and flexibility to make it easier to work the mini-fibres into the lashes and also hydrates
  • The brush is calibrated and designed with fibres arranged in a clover shape across the wand which works to boost the amount of product you can apply with each stroke

Before & After Photos

This is a real quick application and the volume builds really quickly and effectively.

It’s a lovely mascara and it lasted really well on my lashes. I can’t wait to play with it more.
