Like all women I am always trying to figure out a ways to make my eyes really pop, without the mishap of resembling Marty Feldman. I have recently been extremely reliant upon two products, both of which I am now completely obsessed with.
1. They’re Real Mascara by Benefit Cosmetics.
First off, I absolutely love the name of this mascara. The name of this Mascara sounds like the beginning of a conversation between two OC Housewives. “They’re Real! Tamra they’re real!” However, the name is sooooo fitting because I have had several people ask “Are those your real lashes?” when I’ve been wearing this mascara. I always get psyched, internally of course (I’ve gotta keep my cool), and smile demurely as I nod and confirm “Yes. I just have really long lashes.” Haha. Oh, I am such a liar. Okay I have long lashes, but this wand, formula, or whatever is truly amazing and takes my lashes to the next level!
I’m a big fan of getting fake lashes applied and I like to do it a couple of times a year, but I’m also a big believer in “everything in moderation.” I love getting fake lashes, but I think it’s a wise move to let your lashes get a little freedom and fresh air and whilst you are letting your natural lashes enjoy some freedom in between lash sessions, this is far-and-away the closest thing to getting fake lashes! I highly recommend. At $23, it’s a little more than your average drugstore brand mascara, but it is sooooo worth it!
2. Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in 005 Nude by Rimmel London
Recently I had a mini meltdown because I couldn’t find my trusty Stila Kajal eyeliner (in Topaz). I always use it to line my waterline, which makes my eyes look bigger and brighter. I did a quick google search and found amazing reviews for this Rimmel eyeliner. Skeptical I went to Duane Reade and picked it up. It was el cheapo (which I love), so I thought “Hopefully it works. If not, who cares? It was like $5.” Low and behold it is fantastic! I actually prefer it to my Stila pencil, which (by the way), I found at the bottom of a purse the next week. The thing that is great about this pencil is that it is such a natural nude that I not only line my waterline with it, but I also use it as a concealer! Double duty pencil! Now, instead of toting around my concealer in my purse I carry this with me ALWAYS, along with a makeup sharpener.
