Mascara Monday: Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara.

Wimpy lashes, stand up and take notice. Do you crave volume but just can't seem to find the right formula? Look no further: Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara from Estée Lauder is for you.

What makes Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara extremely volumizing? It’s the combination of the lightweight Extreme Bold Volume Formula™, a special blend of three customized lash building fibers and the exclusive Extreme BrushComber™.

The Extreme BrushComber™ is a big brush in a new shape that gives you all the thickening of a brush with the definition of a comb. The brush holds more mascara, which means it will magnify and multiply lashes by delivering additional product and performance. The triangle cut is easy to use and reaches every corner of your lashes despite its big size.

The Extreme Bold Volume™ Formula is a new mousse-like formula contains a calculated blend of light-weight gels, polymers, waxes and pigments that create lightweight volume without clumping. A new blend of hybrid powders made of different sizes, spherical Silica and plates of Mica, maximizes volume to the extreme.

The Tri-blend Multiplying Fibers act like lash extensions as they fill in even the sparsest of lashes – to instantly magnify and multiply the look of lashes.

The results are amazing. My lashes are longer, thicker and more defined with volume, all while continuing to be flexible -- never brittle.

Which shade are you? This mascara comes in four expressive shades of Extreme Black, Extreme Brown, Extreme Indigo and Extreme Violet. I stick with Black, so Extreme Black is for me.

Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara retails for $23.50 and is available at Estée Lauder counters nationwide and esteelauder.com.

It's time to start talking fall. I know we are just half way through July, but the fall collections are hitting counters now and it's time to start shopping for your new fall faves. The NARS Fall Color collection was the first fall collection across my desk. It is nothing short of stunning.

The collection really plays up the eyes in wearable matte shades. I ususally don't go for matte, but the NARS matte formula is perfect. It is silky and soft, but adheres to the lid with ease as it fills them with beautiful color. The overall look is sultry.

I am loving the combination of Yamal all over the eye, with Bavaria on my outer lid and crease. I am lining with Via de' Martelli, a beautiful chocolate brown, that looks like a creamy copper on my eye. Forget waiting until fall, this look is gorgeous right now.
