Plushlash: A mascara formulated to instantly plump up lashes for extreme voluptuous effect. Works fast. Builds volume smoothly and evenly from root to tip. Delivers a silky, flexible, full fan of lashes. Fluid formula lightly coats lashes one layer at a time without smearing, smudging or clumping. Goes on via an innovative, specially patented wand with a v-shaped groove that prunes the bristles on one side while leaving the other side full and lush. The short bristles coax the lashes upward to an extraordinarily sophisticated yet flirtatious curl, while the other side separates and combs the lashes root-to-tip creating a long, well-defined glamour lash. Volumizing, lengthening, curling, lifting. This mascara features everything you want, with all the top mascara no’s: no clumping, spiking, smudging or flaking.
A limited first-edition supply of Ôscillation will be available ONE DAY ONLY – Thursday, July 31st – at select Lancôme locations. Product will not be available again until the fall, when the national launch of Ôscillation takes place.
Ôscillation is the first vibrating mascara from Lancôme. With just the push of a button, lashes look extraordinarily extended, separated and multiplied. The battery-operated brush provides 7,000 micro-oscillations per minute, wrapping lashes up to 360 degrees. The Ôscillation formula is designed to work specifically with the Ôscillation brush. Creamy, fluid and supple in texture, it results in a glossy look and a smooth application.

Last week, I received the following email from a reader, Tara:
“I was wondering if you have tried Maybelline’s The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara? I did a search on your blog and didn’t come up with anything. I ran out of mascara and was at the store last night. I went to grab a Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara, but something caught my eye. There was a big display of The Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara by Maybelline. The packaging is very eye catching since it is yellow and black and I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff. Plus, the color of the mascara is called “Glam Black,” so how could I not try it when the word “Glam” is there? I put it on this morning and was amazed. The brush is “colossal” but my lashes are long and full and no clumps! Geez, sorry to ramble, but I’m just so excited to find a mascara that works wonders for only $6.99! If you haven’t try it, you should!!”
Now, I wasn’t sure whether the aforementioned email was an actual reader review, or a veiled PR pitch…so I decided to purchase for myself, review the mascara and draw my own conclusions.
Does it deliver? You betcha…but in a way you wouldn’t expect. The brush is tame, in contrast to Cover Girl Lash Blast’s big fatty wand. Yet it manages to catch every last lash and coat it in inky blackness. Layer after layer, I was amazed at how I couldn’t coax the formula to clump. Colossal Volum’ Express volumizes alright…just don’t count on nine times your typical thickness. But while your lashes may lack a little in the lushness department, the formula lengthens like you wouldn’t believe…this mascara takes even the most Lilliputian lashes to a whole nuther level. Plus, it washes off with minimal elbow grease.
Check me out wearing Colossal Volum’ Express in Glam Black (please excuse the sloppy application).

For today’s 80s-inspired product review, I’m going to steal a line from Toni’s pop music classic…
Oh, Cargo you’re so fine, You’re so fine you blow my mind. Hey Cargo! Hey Cargo!
On the 4th of July, I was invited to a late-evening barbecue not too far from my own apartment. I had to hoof it because there was no chance of finding parking anywhere in the vicinity of the art museum, which serves as backdrop for the city’s Independence Day festivities. The weather was pretty typical for July – hot and humid – with a light drizzle.
So before heading out the door, I finger painted with Cargo’s Melt-proof 3 in 1 Eye-Cheek-Lip Palette and swiped on some . Eight city blocks later, I showed up at the party looking perfectly polished – and you know how shiny I can get. And when I returned home late that night, my makeup still looked freshly applied!!!
