…all I got was pinkeye. Gross! I had to throw away my mascara. Luckily, I nipped it in the bud, and it inspired to me do a thorough cleaning of my makeup tray. I work two blocks from Sephora (ouch) so I waited a few days, wearing dark glasses at work-I can get away with that-and headed over. In the meantime, I have plenty of sample sizes to get me through from my many sources–and I subscribe to both Ipsy Glam Bag and Beauty Bar’s Sample Society monthly.
What I’m wearing today: Sue Devitt Luxury Lash Mascara.
I give high points to Sue Devitt Makeup all around as she makes my very favorite lipsticks. I’m generally not a fan of long-wearing as they dry out my lips and leave them in horrible condition, so what a surprise that her satiny-smooth, super creamy and beautifully colored lipsticks have major staying power-I wasn’t even trying! I apply her Microquatic Bioluminescence Illuminating Concealer with SPF 20 (say that three times fast) where needed and I’m ready to go with this.
