Are clumpy eyelashes hot these days?


Carmen Electra showed up at the Marc Jacobs Fashion Show yesterday sporting some very thick eyelashes.  My first reaction was “EW!” too much mascara! But then I thought – maybe times are changing! Maybe clumpy mascara is in style now.  Can it be?  Do people actually do this to themselves on purpose? (I’m sounding my age here…aren’t I?)


Don’t want clumpy eyelashes? (Like me!) Try Maybelline’s Lash Stylist Washable Mascara!


Why You’ll Love It
Exclusive V-Styling mascara comb sculpts and thickens lashes up to 65%.
Creates a unique new type of separation
Washable; also available in waterproof formula


For Best Results
Comb mascara from the root to tip of your lashes for a bold, open-eyed effect. Do not let dry between coats. Removes easily with Maybelline Expert Eyes Eye Makeup Remover Towelettes or Expert Eyes 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.

Get it at your local drugstore…Or Target, my personal favorite store. :)

Want to smell like Diesel?


Right off the bat this bottle does not appeal to me it looks kind of like it is hiding out in an old sock. Maybe I am just not cool enough to get it? The floral and fruit notes sound promising though maybe it is worth the try. Has anyone out there gotten past the sock to try it?

DIESEL® ‘Fuel for Life’ Femme Spray

DIESEL® Fuel for Life for women is a sexy and energetic elixir with a crispy fresh black currant opening that catches the heart notes and enrobes them in a charming magic trick, shortly followed by sweet, addictive black currant and raspberry notes with aphrodisiac properties.
