It’s time to bat those lashes ladies!!!  This iconic mascara is at the top of our faves list. It thickens and lengthens.  Two swipes and you’re good to go!  If you have a little more time – or want to take it to the next level – swipe a few more times and get ready to be wowed! YSL SHOCKING FAUX CILS MASCARA. From SephoraAmazon, and Nordstrom.

Next up on the block, a new but intriguing line for us. While out in San Francisco Nonie-belle introduced us to this fabulous Cosmetic lineYoungblood is one of our new favorite lines. The mascara is not as lush as the YSL but has an incredible brush that really grasps the lashes and coats them beautifully. It is more of a natural look when applied but can be layered for extra drama. 

By the way we have also tried Youngblood translucent pressed powder, which is actually a finely milled rice powder. It won’t clog pores, is absorbent, and refuses to become cakey.   We also purchased the Youngblood eye primer and looovve it. It makes a great base for shadow or can be worn on its own to even out tone on the eye and provide a smooth polish. 


The next favorite on our list is our go-to when we are looking for curl, lift, volume and length. Kevyn Aucoin essential mascara delivers on all fronts. It doesn’t clump, transfer or get stiff. It may just be tied for the blue ribbon winner. Available at SephoraAmazon, and Nordstrom

And with swim weather approaching (along with the summer heat and humidity), a waterproof option might be in order.  However…we have yet to find one that we love.  But wait…

Enter Locked & Coated from Bare Minerals!  This bit of magic lets us use one of our favorites and then turns it into a waterproof version!  Voila!

Let us know what you think, belles…and share your faves as well.  We are always open to suggestions.  Just sayin’
