I always think of Covergirl and other drugstore makeup brands as totally trustworthy — they’ve been around for about a billion years, so what could go wrong? For Amy Schavolt of West Palm Beach, FL, things went so wrong with Covergirl’s Bombshell Volume mascara that her eyelashes fell out.

Schavolt told a local news station that at first, people were complimenting her extra-voluminous lashes, but soon the product turned into a bunch of clumpy goop. When she wiped her eye with makeup remover, her eyelashes started to fall out into her handThe same mascara also left an Arizona woman watching her lashes fall out in front of her. “I’m not a vain person. I didn’t think anybody would see it,” she explained. “But, yes, three people said something to me today. (They said) what happened to your eyes?” (Apparently, she doesn’t have very polite friends.)

beauty test drive make up for ever waterproof mascara

A few days before I got married, one of my BFF’s gifted me a shopping spree at Make Up For Ever. Lilit knew I was doing my own makeup for my wedding — hey, Kate Middleton did it! — so she wanted to help out. I got some gorgeous lipstick, foundation, green-tinted primer, and their iconic HD Powder. But as I was checking out, the makeup artist/salesgirl dropped a free sample into my shopping bag. “You need this,” she said.  I looked in the bag. It was Make Up For Ever Aqua Smoky Lash Waterproof Extra Black Mascara.

Duh. I cry at cotton commercials. Of course I was going to cry like a baby on my wedding day.  And Thank God for that lady who gave me the waterproof mascara, because I did.  Keep reading »

A review of Too Faced False Lashes

I am not coordinated or motivated enough to wear false eyelashes, even though they always look totally amazing. I’ve tried putting them on once or twice, but thanks to having perma-shaky Hamburger Helper hands, I was never capable of getting them properly in place or sticking right. Plus? They’re not the best investment — you can wear the once, maybe twice, tops — before you’ve got to toss ‘em. Enter Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Nylon Lash Extension System. This product! I’m obsessed — obsessed! — with this product. And here’s why…

My lashes are stick straight and blonde, and I wish I was fine with that, but instead I have dedicated a significant portion of my time on earth to making them appear long, dark, and luxuriously curly. This pursuit has taken me to the brightly lit beauty counters of luxury cosmetic brands and the dark recesses of drugstore clearance racks. It has caused me to hyperventilate in front of the Sephora employee who told me that the Shu Uemura eyelash curler would no longer be carried in US stores (don’t worry, it’s online), and it has caused me to burn my cheek with the metal edge of said eyelash curler after heating it up with a hairdryer in college. Along the way I’ve learned a lot and found quite a few awesome products, but I’m always on the lookout for more. You can imagine my excitement, then, when I discovered Urban Decay’s Supercurl Curling Mascara. Did it live up to its name? Read on to find out… Keep reading »

Mascara is a strange and mysterious product. Some of my friends’ favorite brands flake and clump on my lashes, and some formulas I swear by have been horror shows for my friends. Even so, people tend to feel very strongly about their preferred mascara, and it’s not uncommon for a beauty blogger to be kicked off the internet for professing an unpopular opinion on Maybelline Great Lash. So with all that in mind, I’d like to talk about Benefit’s BADgal Lash Mascara and how much I hated it… Keep reading »

When it comes to playing up one of my features, I generally go for my eyes. In the days when I had acne and frizzy hair, and didn’t care much for my thin upper lip, my eyes always struck me as my prettiest asset. Now I have much higher self-esteem (not to mention clearer skin and an appreciation for my modest kisser), but my eyes still remain my favorite feature. I’ve been on the hunt for a eyeliner and mascara duo that I could always count on, whether they worked in concert with other makeup — like eye shadow or lip gloss — or gave me a little subtle glam on their own. Well, CoverGirl Queen’s Vivid Impact Eye Liner and Lash Fanatic Mascara are my new go-tos. Keep reading »
