Mascara Top Picks

Best mascaras hands-down..

1) Lancome Hypnose - dryer formula, volume with separation
2) CoverGirl Lash Blast - length in 1 coat, buildable volume
3) Physicians Formula Fake Out - fat lashes, not for the faint of heart

Good Buy! Drugstore Edition

1) Physicians Formula Fake Out Mascara - ignore the gaudy packaging that could quite literally poke your eye out, this mascara will give you volumized lashes. The formula is on the drier side but does not flake, so sick. 

2) Revlon Age Defying Dark Spot Concealer - I have no idea about the 'dark spot erasing' claim, but this s**t covers everything. Best to apply out of the tube and blend with fingers/brush/sponge not the applicator it comes with which is stiff and reminds me of a bingo applicator (how do I know that?).

3) Aveeno Daily Cleansing Pads - a.k.a the poor girl's Clarisonic. These pads will re-texture your face in one use! Perfect for oily skin that needs a scrub as well as dry skin that needs a de-flaking.
