I’m rocking the red pump!

Red Pump Widget

It’s National Women’s And Girl’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. Along with breast cancer, diabetes, and heart disease awareness, I am passionate about spreaking AIDS/HIV awareness. My blog sister and friend Luvvie along with her co-founder Karen have spearheaded The Red Pump Project. Their goal is to get as many bloggers as possible to ‘Rock the Red Pump’ by posting widgets on their blogs. This will create awareness in the blogosphere for not only bloggers, but the many that read our blogs.

Did you know that women represent 27% of all new AIDS diagnoses, with African-American women accounting for 66% of that group? Awareness, education and protection are the keys!

I would have shown a picture of me rocking my red pump in real life but the genius that is me forogt my sexy and painful hot red pumps. Instead I’m rocking a red folder.

Yeah, don’t ask. :) Spread the word, my loves. Tell everyone you know about The Red Pump Project and their initiative. Keep your friends and family members informed. For additional information about National Women’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day, click here.

Y’all stay beautiful!

NYC from the eyes of Clumps!


I am always getting so many emails from ladies who have never been to the lovely NYC to take as many pictures as possible. Lately my last few trips haven’t been around the Times Square area but I strolled down there just for y’all.

…well, that and Inglot.

Enjoy the video! I have a ton of random commentary. Don’t mind me. Pictures will soon follow. I’m off to have lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in NYC…Sea!

Merry Christmas!

From my family to yours…Merry Christmas and Happy holidays! I am one of those annoying people that really get into Christmas each year. I woke up at the crack of dawn as if I were 5 years old.

I love Christmas. And I love the Clumps family.

Posts will resume next Tuesday. Until then, I am available via email: Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

Love you all!

The Artist Summit Miami-Inglot Cosmetics=WHOA!

Time for some photo footage from The Artist Summit Miami!

When I saw the list of vendors, I was most excited to see Inglot Cosmetics. As many of you know, I fell in love with this brand a few months back in New York City. Check out that post here. As fate would have it, the brand is still ONLY available in New York as of right now. It has Canadian and Polish locations but as far as the U.S., a freestanding store only resides in NYC. I know, completely unfair.

So as you can imagine I RAN to them when I saw their spacious layout. Intern Bri did a fabulous job at capturing how I really feel about Inglot.

Seriously y’all…this brand is ridiculous. Ridiculous as in good, I mean. The colors, the packaging, the innovative styles, I just…I love it. Check it out!


I was modest and only hauled two interesting look test tube lippies.


The more I fall for Inglot, the more they upset me. Why can’t we order them online already? Man oh man! And I really do hate to tease y’all but hopefully sooner rather than later, Inglot will open their doors and allow everyone to play with and purchase their products.

I’m wishin’ on a star….

Stay tuned for more installments of The Artist Summit Miami!

FOTD Friday: BriAna goes glam


Hi darlings! And Happy Friday to all. This FOTD Friday features my beautiful and amazing 16-year old cousin, BriAna. She was the official Artist Summit Miami intern. She did took notes, snapped shots, hob-nobbed with make-up artists and even provided snacks throughout seminars. My baby cousin (who I like to think I helped raise, lol) is not your average teen. She’s been class president, held jobs, sings, acts and is also captain of her volleyball team. My girl is on fire. Her personality radiates so much that she even attracted the likes of YouTube guru Koren from EnKore Makeup.

That’s right, my homie Koren wanted to do BriAna’s make-up for Naked Cosmetics. She was incredibly excited. And the FOTD came out amazing!




The results!



My little sweetums was in LOVE with this look. She actually pouted when it was time to remove it. She doesn’t wear make-up on a regular so this was a ton of fun for her. Oh, to be 16 again!

She’s such a doll, isn’t she? Someone cue Fergie’s “Glamorous”.


Rock on, Bri!!

Off to Atlanta I go for the Blogalicious Conference. Of course I’ll be live tweeting along the way.

Have an awesome weekend!

Clumps heads back to NYC!

Clumps of Mascara’s Three Random Bits


How beautiful is this photo? I took it a year or so ago when I was visiting my Little (Big Brothers Big Sisters, holla!) in Tampa, Florida. It looks like the bridge is just going and going and going.

Decided to try something different and share Three Random Tidbits with y’all.
Ready?

1) When Clumps of Mascara first started, I never did mascara reviews. I didn’t start doing them until Clumps turned a year old.

2) Clumps readers are insanely hilarious! No…..really. I had no idea that y’all were so funny. Check out the Beauty Bee-haviors: I Can’t Stand When _____ post.

3) I drink green smoothies every single day. I am obsessed with them. I was asked to do a post about how I make them. What do y’all think about that?

Now it’s your turn! Tell me any random three bits. It could be about anything. Feel like venting? Go ‘head and get you anonymity on. Just don’t insult me because….wowsers, I have had enough of that for the week. *wipes recently threaded brow* Don’t worry. I’ve got some thick skin.

Now shoot….what’s on your mind?
