maybelline-great-lash-lots-of-lashes.jpgI’ve used the same mascara (Cover Girl Lash Blast Lengthening Mascara) for a couple years. And every time I try a new formula, I’m reminded why I shouldn’t stray. But if you follow beauty at all, then you know that Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara is a top rated formula, even amongst its pricier competition. But it was the latest Great Lash Formula, named Lots of Lashes, that caught my attention and made me purchase a tube. With a tiny brush head and the perfect little “grabber” bristles, it coats lashes in great color and makes my eyes pop beautifully!   I don’t think I’ll be going back to old faithful anytime soon.

keira-knightley-10262011.jpgKeira Knightley hit the red carpet recently with her eye lashes in full effect. Every single lash, top and bottom was present and accounted for and decked out in mascara. The dramatic effect was stunning and reminded me that your lower lashes can make an impact, too.

The trick is to use the right mascara. This is where Clinique’s Bottom Lash Mascara comes in handy. The super small wand makes getting those pesky lower lashes a cinch and the look is high impact and super dramatic! Get Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara for $10 from

I’m one of those people who never leaves the house without mascara. A quick swipe instantly brightens my eyes and wakes up my face, and it’s typically the only makeup I wear when I’m in a rush. I often experiment with different mascaras in search of that perfect lash, so I was very excited to try the new Voluminous False Fiber Lash™ from L’Oreal. The mascara features “a unique blend of long and short nylon and rayon fibers — the same material used to make false lashes.” A false eyelash look with my natural lashes? Let’s see:


I applied one coat of mascara to the right eye above. I was really pleased with how full and curled my lashes looked, you can really see the difference between the two eyes. The best part about the mascara was that after hours of wearing, there was no flaking and the mascara didn’t run like many other mascaras I’ve tried, so my eyes looked just as good at the end of the day as they did at the beginning. And speaking of the end of the day, the mascara washed off easily with just soap and water (a prerequisite for me when it comes to mascara, I hate using makeup remover!)

The results? I just found my new go-to mascara.


Create the most outrageous false lash look with our newest, most technically advanced volume mascara - Voluminous False Fiber Lashes. With the power of sculpting fibers this dual fiber mascara wraps each lash to boost, sculpt & volumize building an incredible false lash look.

urban-decay-urban-brow.jpgI have struggled for years to find an eyebrow pencil that delivered softly drawn lines and just enough color. The Urban Decay Urbanbrow Precision-Tip Brow Tint makes my search and the sad state of my eyebrows a thing of the past. With a brush-like tip, this baby sweeps right over your arch, leaving featherlike, perfect strokes behind. My eyebrows look defined and natural and I’m smitten. 

Because of the light way it applies, it takes a second or two to properly show up and you don’t want it to go on too dark. I was also happy that it survived a sweaty gym session and didn’t leave a smudge on my pillow at night — so, keep in mind that it requires a little makeup remover and light scrubbing to remove it.

The Urban Decay Urbanbrow Precision-Tip Brow Tint is available for $20 at
