My fascination regarding the French beauty brand called Maria Galland grows more and more lately. I must say that the make-up collection for Fall/ Winter 2016 – La Parisienne – represents a very nice surprise.

- 507 Le Vernis in 47 Mûre Irrésistible & 56 Taupe Chic (€18,55).
Le Maquillage – La Parisienne Fall/Winter collection 2016 focuses on defined brows, discreetly contoured eyes, bold lips and sexy nails.
Maria Galland 525 Set Sourcils Parfaits – 20 Nuances Pralinées (€35,00/ 4.5g) | This eyebrow set is housed in a sleek compact case with mirror on the inner lid and includes a small size brush kit, which is very travel friendly.
The product is super pigmented, buildable and with a matte finish; it can be used in order to define and contour the eyebrows but also as an eyeshadow palette.
The lighter brown shade is perfect for the entire eyelid, the darker brown is great for creating depth in the eye crease and the almost white shade is excellent for illuminating the inner corner of the eye.
The dark brown shade can also be used wet, for a more intense finish, perfect for creating a cat eye look.
Very comfortable product, velvety on the skin, light with a staying power of 6+ hours without fading or creasing.
Maria Galland 524 Le Crayon Yeux Infini Waterproof in 18 Gris Graphite (€16,00/ 1.3g) | This grey shade is very beautiful; it is slightly crumbly, however the staying power is 8+ hours.
I like to wear it smudged on the upper lid and also use it in order to contour the bottom lid.
It is waterproof however very comfortable to wear, it doesn’t irritate and comes off easily with a good bi-phasic.
Maria Galland 500 Le Rouge Infini in 147 Mûre Irrésistible (€27,55/ 3.2g) | One of my favourite lipsticks!
I wasn’t impressed when I first saw it, however loved it after applying it on my lips.
It is a creamy and comfortable berry shade, perfect for daytime & evening make-up.
The finish is slightly matte; staying power: not excellent, I have to retouch after each meal.
Maria Galland 507 Le Vernis in 56 Taupe Chic (€18,55/ 7ml) | A beautiful taupe shade, so minimalist and elegant!
The nail polish has a thin density and is completely opaque in 2-3 coats.
It is very glossy, it doesn’t stain the nail and the slightly rounded brush makes the application very easy.
Staying power: 4 days – with a good top coat.
Very good quality make-up, however I’m not a fan of the packaging colour, which – for me – is too dark.
