Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Summer 2015

Jean Paul Gaultier's Classique goes seasonal with this limited edition release, Hindi Summer, inspired by a print from the designer's 2013 couture show.

Classique Summer is soft  floral touched with zesty citrus that gets a little green and woodsy as it dries down.  It is similar to last year's version according to the brand.

Rose and orange  blossom mix in the beginning with the citrus( clementine). Then jasmine and  lily of the valley come along  with iris which lends depth . All the white florals are lovely  and a favorite of mine. Along with the rose if the fragrance stayed just like this, It would be fine by me .

As it dries down, a little bit of a soap note  is there along with light musk and amber.

Classique Summer has medium sillage  I would say , not strong but not a skinscent. It's a nice touch for Summer outings . I think it would stand up well in the heat , working well for day .

Classique Summer is $ 71 for 3.3 oz EDT .

Cover Girl The Super Sizer Masacara

Cover Girl's new mascara is the low cal version of supersizing.

The Super Sizer Mascara by Lashblast has a smaller wand than Lash Blast mascaras usually do, I'm good with that as I love the "blast" mascaras a lot but not those thick wands.

The bristles grab lashes best when you twirl the wand  but regular straight brushing works too although not quite as well for all over coverage.  The twirl gives the tiny bristles in there a chance to grab all the lash .

Super Sizer is more of a length  formula than volume. It adds a lot of length but just a small amount of volume. Your lashes definitely stretch up and out with this. I am a length fan so that works for me .   I had a little clumping, but with a brand new out of the package mascara that's not unusual.

It's deeply pigmented ( I have the Very Black shade) and lashes come out deep and dark . It also  comes in Black, Black Brown and Waterproof.

Cover Girl The Super Sizer Mascara is available now for $ 5.99-$ 7.99
