I have found a great new every day mascara, Covergirl Clump Crusher. Just two swipes and my eyelashes go from non existent to wow. I love how lightweight this mascara is my lashes look great but I don’t feel like I have anything on them. And no clumping, flaking or fading. All that and under $8, I’m sold.

Apply one coat of mascara to your upper lashes. Coat brush again and reapply, focusing on the outer edges of your lash lines. Do not pump the wand – it adds air bubbles that can dry your mascara.
For a more dramatic look, apply one coat of mascara to lower lashes.
Its been cold and snowy in the PNW area, in fact record breaking cold and snow. While I love seeing everything blanketed in white the cold and wind can wreak havoc and my hair and skin. Here are two of my favorite products right now that help keep my hair in check even in the cold weather.
My must have this time of year, heck most of the year. My hair tends to dry out easily so I do everything I can to keep it healthy and looking good. I love the mop mixed greens leave in conditioner. Its super light and I have never had problems with it leaving my hair looking limp or greasy. I work a dime sized amount from the middle of my hair down and it leaves my hair so soft and shiny. Its much easier to comb through and keeps my hair looking healthy and hyrdrated all day.

Above you can see some swatches of the products I tried. I was really impressed with the pigment of the colors and with my eye shadow primer the eye shadow lasted all day. My favorite thing from this palette collection is the Birthday Suit Lipstick its the most perfect pink lipstick ever. And what I love most is the color lasts ridiculously long and makes my lips feel amazing. I really love that I can customize the palette so I am only buying colors I will use and I can refill colors as I use them instead of buying a whole new palette. Such a great concept and I can’t wait to try more from this line.
