Maybelline-Great-Lash-40th-Anniversary-Mascara.jpgGuess what? Maybelline Great Lash Mascara is turning 40 this year. Can you believe how good it still looks? Seriously, we hope we look as good as this mascara does when we hit the big 4-0.

In any case, Maybelline decided to team up with three of the biggest names in fashion—Max Azria of BCBG, Tracy Reese and Vivienne Tam—to design custom tubes of the tried and true cult favorite. The result is the tubes you see pictured above, each one reflecting that designer’s aesthetic and made even more special since they’ve all used Maybelline for the makeup at their past runway shows.

And here’s a fun fact: fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer’s bright and cheery clothing originally inspired the pink and green tube back in the 70’s!

Here’s the best part. These tubes will be available in September at Target stores nationwide! They retail for $6.99 each. Be sure to snap them up when they hit the shelves—we know we’re going to!
Upon closer inspection of Emma Watson’s gorgeous Bottega Veneta dress at the New York premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, we noticed her stunning eye makeup which included a combination of glued on crystals and gold shimmering shadow.

Sephora-Makeup-Removing-Pads.jpgWant a surefire way to remove every stitch of eye makeup in a flash? Turn to Sephora Eye Makeup Removing Pads.

These unassuming round white pads pack a serious punch when it comes to removing eye makeup. One pad is saturated with enough makeup remover to effectively cleanse one if not both eyes, depending on how much eye makeup you actually wear. (Two will definitely get the job done even if you wear tons of black eyeliner and mascara!) Plus, they leave behind absolutely no greasy, oily residue.

This is thanks to the ingredient HydroSenn+, a natural ingredient proven to deliver immediate and long-lasting hydration more effectively than hyaluronic acid. It also contains a lash-strengthening complex that’s rich in flavonoids and olive wood extracts.

And the best part? They don’t irritate the eyes. AT ALL. You’ll be amazed at how gentle they are!

Sephora Eye Makeup Removing Pads are $9 for a tub of 30 at
januaryeyes_smh.jpgTalk about futuristic. Madmen actress January Jones’ makeup couldn’t be farther from the trends of the 60s. On two different occasions, the premiere of X-Men: First Class on May 25th (right) and the premiere of Unknown back in February (left), January used a broad stroke of matte eyeshadow that not only covered the lid, but also the area between the eye and nose. 

January might be alone on this trend. It doesn’t work with dark shades (hello, raccoon eyes!), but could be fun to experiment with lighter shades. Unfortunately, her orange eyes and bright red lips combination is a little much, but we’ll definitely try this eye effect with a lighter lip color.
Laura-Mercier-Baked-Eye-Colour.jpgOnce in awhile, we want to try a product simply based on how cool it looks. (Well, maybe more than once in awhile.) But this definitely applies to Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour.

Seriously, can you believe how fantastic this eye makeup looks? Each eyeshadow in the collection is inspired by the precious jewels and raw silks that once traveled the Silk Road. Rich, shimmering violets, roses, turquoises and golds are vibrant and totally gorgeous.

And the good news? They work wet or dry! The formula is smudge resistant and lightweight, and smooths onto the lid easily and evenly. We love them dry as eyeshadow or wet as eyeliner, though applying wet as shadow makes them look much more dramatic.

Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour retails for $22 at
