Major Mascara

My eyelashes - and former dark hair

I know I was born lucky - to have these major eyelashes of my own.  But what I tell you ladies is you can't have everything!!  I might have great eyelashes but there are ladies with perky tushes, clear skin, full long hair, you know where I am getting at with this.   One woman wants my eyelashes and yet I want to be able to fit into a single digit pant size.  I want to be able to leave the house without makeup without fear of acne scars and under eye bags.  But we can't have it all.   

Today, for the 100th time I got asked if I use latisse on my eyelashes.  I constantly get asked if I have eyelash extensions on.  One woman went so far to grab my eyelash and give it a tug just because she had to know for herself.  These Venus fly trap-esque lashes generate a lot of attention.  I get asked a lot of questions about them, and even get some accusations.  For the record, they are real, 100%.

So today, I am going to share with you my secret weapon. An $8 mascara only available at Ulta (as far as I know), Stila Major Lash in Black.  I have used diorshow, lancome, Clinique, buxom, M.A.C., Chanel, L'Oreal, Makeup Forever, and the list goes on.  While I can make pretty much any mascara work, the only one that I can truly say I love is this stila major lash.  It's tiny brush allows for a more precise application.  It is non flaky, doesn't leave a trail of sandpaper in your eye, beautifully darkens, extends, volumizes, and is not clumpy.  It layers so well and is perfect in every way -- Oh, and only $8.  You can't beat it.     

I am also loving these limited edition Stila Valentine's Day compacts - so gorgeous. 

Love at First Blush - $14 @ Nordstroms


  1. Mine aren't as long as yours but I get comments on if mine are real sometimes too. Having long lashes is the best!

  2. Your lashes are gorgeous!

    I really love that Stila put hearts in those blush compacts :)

    1. Thanks Laura! I have the Stila Valentine's blush from last year and it still has the heart shapes too, they never disappeared!

  3. They are real, but you stole them from mom.
