Cynthia Rowley and Avon!


Cynthia Rowley and Avon have teamed up to introduce a new line of makeup for the fall season. I loved her collaboration with Target when she introduced a house wares collection called “Swell” and I love this new paring as well. The collection is perfect for this season, featuring shades of purples, plums and grays. The products include eyeshadow quads, lipsticks, glosses, face powder, nail polish and even a brush set with case. Cynthia puts her signature quirky touch into the packaging, which is black, adorned with colorful floral sketches. Avon is working to collaborate with other designers, possibly to revamp the name and bring in a hipper, more fashion-conscious crowd. Check out the line at Avon’s site.

Viewer Review! Stila Major Lash Mascara


Thanks to Krista D. from Grand Rapids, MI for the review!

Finally, a mascara that doesn’t flake

I have very sensitive eyes and for the past month or so, have gone without mascara because I couldn’t seem to find
one that doesn’t end up getting little flecks of black in my eyes, causing major irritation. I look so much better with it on, so I embarked on a search for a mascara that could live up to my expectations, and I found it! It is Stila’s Major Lash Mascara. The unique gel formula makes it so it doesn’t flake and the price is good, too.

Stila Major Lash Mascara

This flexible gel formula adds instant pigment to shine and define, can be layered for a more dramatic look, keeps lashes soft, curls on command and doesn’t flake.

If it’s too good to be true…..


T.V. watchdogs have concluded that television ads for Rimmel mascara in which Kate Moss’ eyelashes were digitally enhanced broke advertising industry rules.

This comes just three months after a L’Oréal mascara advert was criticized for featuring actress Penelope Cruz in false lashes.

The agency behind Rimmel’s television and magazine campaigns denied claims that Kate wore false lashes during the shoot but produced no evidence to prove it.

From now on, the company has been ordered to include a disclaimer in future ads making it clear when post-production magic has been used to increase the effects of a product.

Finally — some truth in advertising!

Not too good to be true!


Dior Diorshow Mascara

What it is:
Dior’s cult-fave, super volumizing, lengthening, and curling mascara.

What it is formulated to do:
Creates the longest, thickest, curviest lashes ever, resulting in an ultra-glam “just-off-the-catwalk” look.

If you haven’t tried this yet, it lives up to the promise your eyelashes will look so long and lush you will think you have false eyelashes on. I am a Diorshow addict and I don’t care who knows it.
