Hi, y’all. Today is day 5 of The Beauty Girls’ beautious giveaways! And it’s my chance to host some!!!
Today begins your chance to win some of my FAVORITE products from Lancome, Living Proof, Lola Marc Jacobs and Barbar!
Here’s what’s up for grabs:
This past weekend, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I attended our friends’ wedding. Though my Audrey Hepburn-inspired cocktail dress was darling and my coiff was looking uncharacteristically on point, it was my Bambi lashes that elicited the most compliments from my better half.
“Your eyelashes look amazing,” he said, at least three times during the night. At first, I was a little skeptical. I mean, when was the last time you got a compliment on your lashes from a guy who didn’t idolize Cher and sweat glitter (to steal a phrase from my gal, Amber)?
At first, I thought Graham’s flattery might have been the result of the Glenlivet he was sipping at the reception. But when I stopped in the ladies loo and spied myself in the mirror, I realized that the compliments were well-deserved.
What was my secret? I’ll tell you. Swipe on Lancome’s Oscillation Powerbooster lash primer, from root to tip. And while it’s still wet, paint on a coat of Lancome Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara. Hypnose Drama’s s-shaped brush paints on inky goodness, resulting in fanned out, eye-popping, full body fringe. The formula is on the thin side, which means that it won’t dry out, or worse – leave your lashes a clumped up mess. I adore how the applicator grasps even my stumpiest, non-existent baby lashes and transforms them into their best selves.
Hypnose Drama is, by far, the best mascara on the market right now and it is absolutely worth every penny of its $24.50 price tag. But if you want to up the proverbial ante and elicit stares and compliments galore, you’ll dig deeper into your wallet and buck up for the primer too.
Lancome Powerbooster and Hypnose Drama Instant Full Body Volume Mascara are available at Sephora.
As I previously mentioned, LashBlast Length Mascara ($7.49) won’t be in stores until early September, but CoverGirl has made a limited amount available for early purchase starting today at covergirl.com/lashblastlength.
When it comes to lashes, NARS knows that bigger is always better, and the new NARS Larger than Life Mascaras do not disappoint. Boasting formulas enriched with Vitamin E and Macadamia Nut Oil, these luxuriously rich, deeply pigmented mascaras go on silky smooth with lavish volumizing or lengthening effects. While sumptuous, they dry quickly and beautifully, with no smudging or flaking. NARS Larger than Life Mascaras will bring high definition and over-the-top drama to every fringe.
NARS Larger than Life Volumizing Mascara features a signature, square brush with fibers called honeycomb, designed for maximum product pick-up and perfectly even distribution. With lash volume and curl instantly boosted with every stroke, NARS Larger than Life Volumizing Mascara’s results are dramatically dense.
NARS Larger than Life Lengthening Mascara features a unique conical wand of high-tech fiber bristles encourages separation and definition, and unique nylon fibers cling to lashes for pronounced lengthening. NARS Larger than Life Lengthening Mascara is transformative, leaving lashes visibly sculpted, elongated and defined.
Available now at Sephora.
