EOS lip balm + giveaway!

I dig nature. Even when it doesn’t dig me. Which is most of the time. Proof of that would be my freaking out when I see bull frogs meeting me at my door step, snakes slithering past me when I lounge on the grass and pelicans trying to eat while I’m chillin’ at the beach. Have you ever seen the mouth of a pelican? They could probably chomp off my head in one bite.

The other day I was taking a stroll outside and y’all will NOT believe what all-natural beauty goodness I found in the trees.

Amor de Lacquer: Zoya Wonderful Fall 2010 collection

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

It’s not quite the holidays (although I was it was) but with a collection like this, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. Zoya’s Wonderful collection has stolen my heart. But then again, it would. It’s a collection of stunning dusty creams.

Oh yeah! Too bad my nails have been a hot and breakin’ mess. One of my middle fingers (such irony, uh?) has decided to just completely break off. It refuses to grow as long as its siblings. Such a meanie, uh? Yes, I just called my finger a meanie. ;)

NYX Sheer Tube Gloss

Yo mamacitas…been looking for a bangin’ new lip gloss? Like I really even need to ask that question. 9 times out of 10, us beauty lovin’ girly girls will purchase a lip gloss over any other beauty product. I didn’t conduct a formal survey…such my loca assumption. :) I’ve been rockin’ some of these NYX glosses like a mad woman these days.

(l-r) Pink Caramel, Brilliant, Luscious

You want to see a swatch of that hot pink one, uh? You know you do!

Mascara Monday: L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara

L’Oreal’s newest mascara has hit the scene and I can’t even begin to tell y’all how many emails I got about it. You must trust me, darlings. If you see that a new mascara has hit the scene and I have yet to review, trust and believe that a review is in the works. I be on it, mannnn.

Okay, let’s get serious. While I’ve always been a fan of L’Oreal Voluminous (I think it’s better than DiorShow), I didn’t think that L’Oreal could tweak it to make it any better. Unless, of course they changed the formula to make it less thick. Which, of course, would mean…lesser or no chances of clumping.

The mascara crew at L’Oreal listened to my inner thoughts and viola—Million Lashes was born. Is it a winner?

Make-up at Blogalicious + cute kids

As a beauty blogger, sometimes I feel like I HAVE to wear make-up at events where I am representing Clumps of Mascara. Beauty blogger=she must wear make-up all of the time, right? Wrong. I may don a face of make-up 3 times a week tops. But because I was out and about meeting with fellow bloggers, I wanted to look jazzy and so here’s what I was rockin’…

That’s my little cousin B. Yep, he’s a B too. Silliest boy ever.

Amor de Lacquer: Broadway Fashion Diva Chrome nails

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer…the series all about nail polish and nail care. Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com. Raise your hand if you’ve been wanting to rock Minx nails for like….ever now? I mean, honestly…I’ve never been on the “do what the celebs do” when it comes to beauty and fashion trends, but I’ve been all over Minx nails. Solange rocked the fiercest set in my book.

I’ve been wanting to try Minx myself but I swear y’all…my cheapness will be the death of me. Minx nails can be pretty costly ranging anywhere from $35-$75. And they don’t even last THAT long. But as with anything that’s crazy in price, it doesn’t take long for a budget-friendly alternative to hit the scenes.

BAM!!

Physician Formula’s Gel CreamLiners

Girl, lemme tell you…since I’ve been on this “Green Kick” as some of my friends like to call it, I’ve been all about green-ing up my cosmetics. Now, I’m not going to lie to you and tell you that all of my products are natural, organic and comes from the earth. But I am slowly making changes and being more aware of the products that I do use.

I’m finding that swapping every day products with greener ones is the best way to green-ify. I’ve done it with pencil liners and I am so glad that I can officially retire my MAC Fluidlines.

Physician Formula’s liners are epic.

OCC Lip Tars a mixin’

My my my…what more needs to be said about these kids? Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has wooed me in the nail polish and loose eye shadow department, but I would be a tad bit remiss if I didn’t declare my love for the Lip Tars. I’ll do a formal swatches soon but to tease you a bit, I did some mixing and made my own shade.

A little bit of this and a little bit of that…

And look what I made.
