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.

Need somewhere to store all your beauty loot?

A genius idea from Glamour executive beauty editor Mary MacLean: She repurposed a garden tote to hold her hair stuff, using the side pockets for brushes and the main compartment for hot tools. I love this idea I have a hard time keeping all my hair tools from becoming a massive twisted mess.

$33.99 BUY IT HERE.

Sonia Kashuk Weekender makeup bag

The detachable clear zippered bags inside are awesome, as are the many cute prints (Pucci-style! gingham!) available. I like the compartments my current travel case is a similar to a train box so it can be hard to find things once they slip to the bottom.

$22.00 BUY IT HERE.

Not just for forks

Container Store mesh desk drawer organizers,

If you want to keep your beauty secrets to yourself and declutter, stash products away in drawers. A kitchen utensil tray keeps products neatly sorted. I used to use this type of organizers for my makeup but bought the solid plastic kind and then ended up getting all gunky. I like the mesh on these it would be easier to keep clean.

$2.50-$6.00 BUY IT HERE.
