Lash Out Loud!

I'm back from vacation! And just in time to celebrate NORDSTROM's Anniversary Sale in a few days. I'm excited about the fall looks from my favorite brands, but I'm even more amped about the beauty exclusives.

For instance, the Mascara Wardrobe Set from SMASHBOX offers three of its signature mascaras for the low price of $24 (a $49 value). You can choose a different lash look every day. The DNA Mascara is a real eye opener. It promises extreme lengths for an innocent doe-eyed look. Hyperlash Mascara boasts of lush lashes all around..lifts, volumizes, defines, and lengthens. And the trio's superhero, Bionic Mascara adds volume with claims to strengthen and protect lashes! (The DNA & Hyperlash mascaras are full size.)

I also found (but have not tried) BEAUTY SOCIETY Enormous Lashes & Beautiful Brows Anniversary Set for $99 ($151 value). Includes a full sized Enormous Lash Mascara that builds, lengthens and separates lashes with a full brush for maximum performance. If you're familiar with this product, feedback is welcome. I'm going for a test run for sure this week. Sale begins on July 16th -- take advantage of the pre-sell online or in store.


  1. Beautiful eye make up. Dear BlackSwan can I wear a shimmer Yellow on my eyes (a full lid) to wor? Its a look I saw in essence

  2. Dear Anonymous -
    It depends on the industry. Creative companies are more flexible. If you're in a corporate environment, try a light application and keep the rest of your makeup minimal for an understated look.
