I need your vote!

Not because I’m running for President. The White House so isn’t ready for me. *flips hair* 8)

No no no, darlings. It’s not that. It’s Target Beauty’s Biggest Fan contest. I messed around and entered it. Can you believe that? I’m a low key kind of gal and very rarely do contests that require begging people to vote for you. But who knows! I just may win. 20 selected entries will be selected to proceed to the next stage. And from there, FOUR will win a $500 gift card to Target. If I win, a percentage of my winnings will go to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. So what do ya say?

You can vote for me once a day until May 17th. Tell your friends, family, dogs and cats. Let’s get Clumps of Mascara to the White Hou–errr, next round. Hit the image below to vote. Thanks for the support!

An Open Letter from Godbaby Clumps

Guess who turned a year old the day before Valentine’s Day?

You guessed me? Sophie Simone? Alright!

You’re so smart. The other day Godmommy Clumps let me borrow her MacBook. And without her knowing I managed to prop her camera up and have a little photoshoot. What can I say? After watching her do it so many times, I wanted to try it myself.

Around Orlando: Chevy Valentine’s Day Sugar Rush

Your favorite beauty blogger has a massive sweet tooth. I mean, I LIVE for delicious sweets and like to treat myself as often as I can. Last week I was invited to participate in a Chevy Valentine’s Day Sugar Rush event.

I’m sorry…what? I get to ride around in a brand new Chevy Cruze while using OnStar to go from various cookie, candy and ice cream shops in Orlando? Like I really had to think twice about attending. I had a car full of great company and a list of spots to head to and I was ready to go! Guess where we went?

Sista Show-Off: Flowers From Fatima

Welcome to another post from the Sista Show Off series! In this series I like to show some love to other companies, blogs, businesses, organizations or just regular ladies like myself who are paving the way for women everywhere! Let me feature you! Shoot me an email at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

Allow me to introduce you to a 21 year old college student with a passion driven entrepreneurial spirit.

My name is Fatima Spencer. I am 21 years old and was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I am the second youngest of 8 children. I currently attend Xavier University as a Spanish major, with a focus in Advertising. I will be graduating in the Spring of 2011. Outside of academics, I enjoy producing music, gardening, and creating floral accessories.

I hope to use my degree to fuel a more successful business for my career after college. I own a business known as Flowers From Fatima, which was founded in December of 2009. Flowers From Fatima is a special line of trendy floral accessories for women.

The line includes hair clips, headbands, and wrist corsages that are great for women of all ages and ideal for all occasions, from weddings to prom. They work well for everyday wear, too. No matter what the occasion, Flowers From Fatima has just the right piece to help you achieve that glamorous look.

Check out her shop and support her! Fatima, you’re amazing.

Want me to show you off? If you have a blog, website or e-store and would like to be featured, send me an email at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

New York Fashion Week S/S 2011: Clumps in the streets!

Oh my…what would I do without the Clumps of Mascara New York Fashion Week team? We would not have any representation if it weren’t for my girls Sarah and Yaya. Yaya is a veteran to helping me out but the lovely Sarah is new to Clumps of Mascara. She is a New York native and I am so glad that we crossed paths. Girlfriend is super talented and she bounced around NYC last week attending New York Fashion Week events.

She did a video about her experience at one of Maybelline New York and CVS Pharmacy pop-up tents and ohmigooodness….let’s just sayin’ I was hatin’ somethin’ serious. I so wish I could have been there! Here’s what Sarah has to say.

It was great to check out the Maybelline New York & CVS Pharmacy
Beauty and Fashion Retreat in the whirlwind that was New York Fashion
Week. What’s better than getting pampered (for free!) and learning
quick tips about looking runway ready from the comfort of your own home? The experience was great, and Gabriel Almodovar was helpful in breaking things down for me.

And the amazing video that she did documenting the event….

Stay tuned for more New York Fashion Week coverage from Clumps’ Sarah and Yaya!

Mascara Monday: MAC Haute & Naughty Lash

You know what?¬† MAC Cosmetics gets an enormous fist from me. This mascara was listed on their website for months before it was released in store. No bueno for a mascara fiend like myself. Of course I could have ordered it online but who wants to wait THAT long? Well here we are, darlings….was this mascara worth the wait?
MAC Haute & Naughty Lash

Guess who’s baaack?

I’m back!

I know, I know…I really should have never just dropped off of the face of the e-earth like that, uh? My bad, y’all. I took a much needed withdrawal from the innanet. I SO needed it. Not to mention I started an evening/weekend job and OMG, I completely failed in the time management department.

But I’m back now and I have SO much to share with you. Here’s what reviews you can look forward to in the coming weeks:

  • OCC lip tars. Yuuuum….
  • Clarisonic Plus
  • My annual visit to the dermatologist. Has my skin improved since last year? Pshttt.
  • Orly’s Plastix collection. Sick of mattes yet?
  • CoverFX foundation…I think I found a winner, y’all.
  • Mario Badescu skincare products
  • Huetiful Hair steamer. Amazing!!
  • Zoya’s newest polishes
  • CoverGirl Queen’s concealers…SO brown girl friendly
  • Make Up For Ever’s HD blush
  • An eye shadow palette that has 120 shadows. Wow…sers!

…my Twitter fam has asked me to review my new Android phone so I think I’ll be doing that too. Yep, after 2 years and 3 Blackberrys, I have broken up with RIM and so in love with Android!

That’s not even half of it. I will also be hosting, co-hosting and volunteering for several events (that you’re invited to) in the Central and South Florida…including Shecky’s Girl’s Night Out in Miami! And I’ve got a lot of giveaways lined up.

OH! And I’m actively posting on the Clumps of Mascara Tumblr blog. It’s just random shots of products, events and looks. Not to be confused with my travel blog which is also on Tumblr.

So yep…I’m back and ready to par-tay! How have you guys been? Try any new mascaras? Have any products you think I should try?

Enjoy your weekend and see you for Mascara Monday!
