Review: Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliners

Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliners

I had two recent epiphanies; 1) I have officially graduated to the need and use for a magnifying mirror for daily eye makeup and 2) I really am not all that talented at applying liquid eyeliner. 

Big Sigh!!!

My preference for Stila One Step Waterproof Pencils topped with Lancome ArtLiner, is hampered by the fact that I have to go out of my way to Ulta to purchase them, since, annoyingly, only half Stila's collection is sold at Sephora...(C'mon. Either you in or you're out).  In desperation, I recently tried Smashbox long wearing pencil, only to discover I'm allergic to it. No great loss as I found it a bit "grabby" while applying.

Moving on!

Things we Loved in Paris!

Things we Loved in Paris

My partner at Mary Jane Denzer, Anastasia Cucinella and I now have the difficult job of sorting through all the beautiful clothes we saw during Paris Fashion Week.  It's a tough job, but someone has got to do it!

As always, some of the dresses we loved best had a modern, architectural vibe, with some whimsical flourishes.  In the interim, our store is full of fabulous things for Spring from luxe sportswear to enjoy on the weekends, perfect daytime luncheon dresses  and of course, beautifully curated evening wear for your most important events.

Tony Ward Tres Jolie!

Tony Ward tres Joile

We loved seeing couture designer Tony Ward in Paris during Fashion Week.  He and his team just moved into a magnificent atelier in an exquisite building, with remarkable original details including an old wrought iron lift.

Of course we will be buying  his beautiful gowns and cocktail dresses again for our store, Mary Jane Denzer.  Come and see what's in store from Tony Ward now!  As always, he provides gorgeous color options for all of his dresses, so one may be the dressing you have been dreaming of!

Gearing Up To Get Back In The Mascara Game...

L'Oreal Voluminous Fiber FX Mascara
My lashes have been on Holiday for the last 5 months... Let me attest to the beautiful notion of waking up daily and looking more than human with lash extensions.  Out the door time gets nicked in half because being eye ready makes everything else a slap and a dash.

I promised myself that after returning from Fall Fashion Week in Paris, (shopping with my partner Anastasia for our store Mary Jane Denzer), I would take a long, long break.  Frankly, I don't know a soul who did not suffer serious damage to their lashes.  I'm hoping to come out unscathed, by using Latisse, to minimize the lash loss.

Years ago, I used Latisse when it first became a, "thing".  While I did grow massive lashes, I also suffered from dry, red, scratchy eyes, which mitigated the whole experience.  Smarter this time, I ditched the thick, unwieldy brushes that came with the prescription, for a very fine brush.  My theory is that those brushes, which could have white washed a barn, were depositing too much product. So far so good.

We shall see...

In the meanwhile, I have started researching mascaras again.  What immediately caught my eye was a new Voluminous Mascara from L'Oreal.  The original is a goodie and is supposedly beloved by Jennifer Aniston. (Call me silly, but I'm among the legions hoping for a Brad Pitt reunion...Frankly Angelina and Justin seem a better match than they were to Brad and Jenn, respectively. And you???)

What is very clever about the new Voluminous X Fiber, aside from the fibers for volume, is that one side comes with a black primer!!!  This my lovelies, is a stroke of genius.  I love me some primer, but have sometimes seen tell tale traces of white on my lashes.  This has got to be one of those moments where competitors, are smacking their foreheads for not having thought of black primer first.

Well done L'Oreal!

The NY Times Weighs in on the Best Drugstore Makeup Buys

Love, love, love, the more accessible beauty coverage at the "newspaper of record" these days.   I nearly keeled when I received a beauty alert this morning,  with an article by Tynan Sinks on her favorite drugstore beauty buys.

Welcome to our world!  Here's the link.  Shout out to my sister Loren, who told me months ago to check out NYX concealer.  It's her new Holy Grail.  Tynan feels the same way...

Naturally I dashed out to my closest CVS, STAT.  The NYX display was  sadly baron...Ulta will no doubt, be better supplied.

Anyway, worth a read and maybe a note or two.  I'll keep you posted on that concealer...provided I can find it.
