eye+makeup In What Order Do You Apply Your Eye Makeup?I always apply my mascara before any other eye makeup, because I inevitably end up getting mascara all over my eyelid (no matter how careful I am).

lancome+oscillation+powerbooster+lash+primer Lancôme Oscillation Powerbooster Lash Primer
There’s a new addition to the Lancôme Oscillation family. Oscillation Powerbooster is “the first vibrating power primer to boost the appearance of natural lash growth. The vibrating power primer enhances lash thickness, density and appearance of length so that naturally occurring lash growth is more visible/noticeable.”

To use, apply Oscillation Powerbooster “to prepare and improve the lash surface, followed by your favorite mascara to maximize your makeup result.” Sounds promising, and I appreciate that Lancôme encourages you pair Powerbooster with your fave mascara – not just Oscillation.

But for a truly wide-eyed look, all you need to do is peep Powerbooster’s hefty price tag: $39. Ouch!

Lancôme Oscillation Powerbooster is a Nordstrom exclusive.

I’d Like To Give A Shout Out To My Sister

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Mascara | Leave a comment

diploma+cap+graduation Id Like To Give A Shout Out To My SisterI’d like to give a shout out to my little sis, who graduated from college today. This summer, she’ll start graduate school at Georgetown, and I’m so proud of her!

This afternoon, while driving home from her graduation lunch, I marveled at Lauren’s lush lashes; so I grilled her about what mascara she was wearing. She told me that it was Maybelline’s Colossal Volum’ Express. After I complained that Colossal never gave me such a dramatic look, she let me in on her little secret.

When a mascara doesn’t exactly work out for my sister, she gives it a second chance…this time, using the disposable mascara wands from Sephora. “They make even drugstore mascaras look like a million bucks.”

My sister is so smart, y’all. Look out, Georgetown!
