Mascara Monday: Mark Scanda-Lash Go-To Mascara.

Mark has taken their core mascara and transformed it from their hook-up size to a full size (yay!) mascara in this new Scanda-Lash Go-To Mascara. So basically, it is the same formula, in a new larger, sleek, slender tube.

Mark Scanda-Lash Go-To Mascara

Scanda-Lash Go-To Mascara is made with a thick formula that adheres to lashes without clumping. It takes a good two tow three coats to get the length and definition that I like. It is nice for an everyday mascara or for those who want that kind of look. It does add a bit of volume, but you're not going to get intense drama with this one, so it is daytime and office safe. It wears all day with nor clumpy, flaking or smudging. It rinsing away with ease.

The wand itself is very light and slender to hold. The brush is on the longer and slender side itself too. It is very easy to control and handle, especially on the inner and outer corners and lower lashes, which is a plus.

Scanda-Lash Go-To Mascara comes in three shades:

  • Blackest Black - a very deep, dark black
  • Brown Black - deep dark brown
  • Violet - deep blue/purple

Shop for Scanda-Lash Go-To Mascara at meetmark.com or through your independent mark rep. Each mascara retails for $11.00.


The Dancing with the Stars Collection by Stila Cosmetics.

I'll admit it. I watch Dancing with the Stars on Monday nights. This season I am loving Amber Riley, surprised at how great Snooki is, and can't help but want a win for Valerie Harper. But let's discuss the looks. Aside from the obvious spray tans, I am always mesmerized by thehair and makeup looks. They must have an enormous team of creative hair and makeup artists working on the cast each week. I had no idea that Stila was the brand used behind the scenes. This year, Stila is taking backstage front and center by creating its newest collaboration, the Stila + Dancing with the Stars Collection.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick & 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Urban Decay has launched and relaunched two great products that will have lips drenched in beautiful color this fall. We all know that creamy color is where it's at. Whether it's bright, bold or neutral, highly pigmented color that lasts and feels great on the lips is a must. Urban Decay has managed to do just that with Revolution Lipstick and to go with it, the 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil.

Fall Lips: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick & 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Revolution Lipstick - $22.00

This lipstick is so good. Really. It features a creamy formula unlike any other I have ever tried before. It is super thick and feels almost cushiony on the lips. It feels like a super hydrating lip balm, but better. Each of the 22 shades are highly pigmented. From gorgeous nudes to bold brights, there is something here for everyone. I am partial to nude or rosy nude shades. I am loving Naked, Naked2, Liar and Native. The complete list of shades:

  • 69 - Bright Red with Pink Undertone
  • Anarchy - Bright Fuchsia
  • Bang - Bright Orange-Red
  • Catfight - Pink Fuchsia with Slight Red Undertone
  • F-Bomb - Classic Red
  • Fiend - Muted Rose
  • Jilted - Deep Fuchsia Shimmer with Blue Shift
  • Liar - Pink-Brown Nude
  • Lovelight - Pale Peachy-Pink Shimmer
  • Manic - Soft Wine
  • Naked - Nude-Pink
  • Naked2 - Medium Beige-Nude
  • Native - Pale Pink
  • Obsessed - Bright Baby Pink
  • Protest - Sheer Peachy Nude
  • Rapture - Dusty Rose
  • Rush - Pink Mauve
  • Shame  Deep Berry
  • Streak - Coral Pink
  • Strip - Sheer Medium Mauve-Nude
  • Turn On - Rosy Pink
  • Venom - Bright Plum

24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil - $19.00

I have a love hate relationship with lip pencils. I use them everyday, but I really hate the way they feel. I obviously had never tried this one before, because this pencil really does glide onto lips. 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil glides on lips with ease. It is super creamy yet stays in place. It is super long-lasting and provides a waterproof base that helps to make lipstick last longer. I like to match my lipstick to my pencil to further extend wear, and I love that there are matching liner shades to the new Revolution lipsticks. There is also a clear shade, which is brilliant, called Ozone. I am definitely picking that one up. The complete list of shades:

  • 69 - Classic Red
  • Anarchy - Bright Fuchsia
  • Bang - Bright Orange-Red
  • Deep - Warm Brown-Nude
  • Jilted - Deep Fuchsia-Pink
  • Liar - Mauve Nude
  • Manic - Rosy Wine
  • Naked - Nude-Pink
  • Naked2 - Medium Beige-Nude
  • Native - Pale Pink
  • Obsessed - Baby Pink
  • Ozone - Clear
  • Rush - Pink Mauve with Soft Pearl
  • Streak - Coral Pink with Soft Pearl
  • Turn On - Rose-Pink with Soft Pearl
  • Venom - Rich Plum

Both products are available now from Sephora, ULTA, select Macy's, beauty.com and urbandecay.com.
