Clump Crusher

For someone with delicate lashes, finding a mascara that won't weigh them down is an ongoing challenge. Covergirl's "Clump Crusher" by Lashblast is a definite must have.  Not only does it give my lashes incredible separation, it allows me to build volume and touch up hours later with no clumping. I love it so much it brings me to tears, but I don't have to worry as their waterproof mascara has me covered. For easy, breezy beautiful lashes visit

It's Tea Time

Lise Watier helps start and end my day with some tea time. Their eye serum really packs a punch with the exclusive concentrated Labrador Tea extract. With a fresh, silky, gel-like texture, my eyes are moisturized and soothed. It also works wonders at softening fine lines and helps protect the delicate under eye area. This serum complements makeup and is ultra-hydrating on its own. Pick up yours today from
