Am I Crazy? $40 for Black Eyeliner?

Maybe I was tired. It was late. Like almost 11PM - yes I am getting old.  I ordered this from QVC while flipping through the channels:

smashbojet_set.jpgSmashbox Jet Set Eyeliner with Brush. The total with shipping + tax = $40.24. Eek...that's a lot for another black eyeliner.

The lovely Holly Mordini, Smashbox's VP of Global Artistry, showed how this eyeliner with brush is perfect for lining the inner rims of your eyes - usually a beauty don't. But said this was specially formulated to dry quick on the inner rims and didn't smear or smudge into the eyes.

I like the small angle in the brush - and that could possibly be enough to justify the purchase.  I am just hoping it works for the beautiful eye looks for Fall on me!

Back to School Beauty - Are You Envied?

Be envied as you head back to school! Let them look at your full, thick, too good to be true lashes. Are they falsies? What is she wearing? How does she do it?  This is what you will hear when you use my latest mascara find.

What is it? What is it?

px_lash_envy.jpgIt is Prescriptives new Lash Envy Volumizing Mascara.  And I am being serious here, ladies. I have not been so excited by a new mascara in such a long time.

Lash Envy is the first mascara that uses a special polymer that helps boost lash volume by up to 200%. Somehow, through the miracle of science + makeup, the formula immediately grabs onto your lashes, making them so full of volume - with no clumping in sight.

And the volume lasts throughout the entire day. You see, normal water-based mascaras lose lash volume over time, as the water in the formula slowly evaporates as you wear it. Not with Lash Envy and its special polymer - it sustains the volume. And by keeping the water in, lashes are left soft and smooth - while extremely full of volume. Amazing!

Lash Envy is $19 - a little on the expensive side for a mascara, but so worth it - and it comes in black and brown.

I haven't used anything but black mascara (during the day) for what seems like years. But I tried Lash Envy in brown, and was truly surprised. Pairing it with a new dazzling brown eye liner (Bourjois new Metallic Eye liner, review coming soon) and my hazel eyes are beautiful. And my lashes really have never been so full and lush with this mascara.

At the end of the day (which you would never know it was the end of the day from the way my lashes still looked - really!) Lash Envy simply comes off with my regular facial cleanser. Simple. Easy.

I think I found my "HG" mascara.

Look for Lash Envy at, at their counters nationwide, and over at too (where they have been running Free Shipping with any purchase lately!).
