Mascara Monday - Week One.

This week I got to try a fabulous mascara, one that I am sure you have been reading a lot about. The mascara of which I am speaking is Prescriptives Here to Stay 24-Hour Longwear Mascara.

This has got to be the most gentle, long-lasting mascara I have ever tried. Usually the longer-the-lasting the mascara is, the more stiff and brittle my lashes feel. Not with this formula. It truly is unique and a must-have if you are looking for an all-day, all-night waterproof mascara.

The brush is more of brush/comb, and it is made out of a very flexible plastic. The formula glides on and dries in a few seconds. If you like multiple coats, you need to do them quickly, as adding coat after coat when the formula is dry does not apply so well. It tugs a bit, so you need to work your lashes a bit faster than normal. But in the end, it is so worth it.

For the ultimate mascara experiment, I wore Here to Stay all day, through a rough day, that even included taking a dip in the pool (still over 80 degrees in Masscahusetts in October - go figure), and was careful not to remove it when taking off my makeup that night. To my amazement, the mascara was still in perfect place when I woke up.

Here to Stay comes in both brown and black and retails for $19.50.

Welcome to Mascara Monday's.

One can go mad trying to find the right mascara. And being that mascara is one of those products that we replace most often and one that we are very picky about, I thought I would help cut through the madness and report on mascaras, every week. I will bring you my latest finds and failures and hope to help you find your perfect mascara.

Sephora BCA Super Shimmer Lip Gloss in Forever Pink.

This delicious tasting perfectly pink lip gloss has not missed a day on my lips since I got this a few weeks ago.

One of Sephora's Breast Cancer Awareness entries this year is this beautiful tube of Shimmer Lip Gloss.

This gloss is full of gorgeous holographic shimmer and super shine, and simply looks perfect on everyone. Sephora will donate $1 from the sale of each Super Shimmer Lip Gloss in Forever Pink ($10) to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Use this gloss alone for a pretty, sheer sparkle, or over your favorite lipstick to bring on the shimmer and shine without changing the color.
