Clinique Mascaras

I've posted a lot about mascaras here, I know, but quite frankly that's because they're amazing.
And so Ms Keren has a wonderful post for us all about the fabulous mascaras from our friends at Clinique... BEHOLD!

I have troubles choosing which mascara from all the millions out there...

Luckily for me, and now you lovely readers, Clinique have grouped all theirs together so you can decide from either a daytime natural loo
k, special occasion or all out glamour... As modelled by the cutest dolls posing in their mini sets!

The one with the teeny tiny disco won me over, and I chose the High Definition Lashes*. I am very happy with my choice! I had already fallen in love with lash power and was wearing it for all occasions. But I now have different looks for day and evening, I rocked my new more full-on lash look on Saturday night with Lash Building Primer*, High Definition Lashes and Bottom Lash*, and felt more 'done' .... my friends commented on how long and thick my lashes looked. So all in all – Clinique have managed to completely win me over with 3 products. N
ow I also have the High Impact Lash Curling Mascara* to try... Will this be another winner?

Here’s a run down of all the mascara’s on offer...

Bottom Lash Mascara – you probably think you don’t need this baby, but I’ve found it super easy to apply, as unlike normal size mascara wands it defines even the wispiest lashes. And it’s the same formula as Lash power so does NOT smudge. RRP £10.00.

High Lengths – I haven’t tried this one, but Clinique say it their most lengthening and lifting mascara yet, with a special curved wand applicator that follows the natural curvature of the eyes... RRP £15.00

High Impact Curling Mascara – I’ll be reviewing this soon, but Clinique say it lasts 24 hours without running or smudging. RRP £15.00

Lash Power - As previously discovered, it does not smudge or smear. Yet the formula removes easily with warm water. RRP £15.00

High Definition Lashes – features the double-sided brush and comb wand, which lengthens AND volumises for a really glam look. Love it! RRP £15.00

Lash Doubling - I haven’t tried this one, but Clinique say it’s the ideal all-rounder that thickens, lengthens and curls. RRP £15.00

Naturally Glossy – this is the one that Clinique say looks very natural, and has virtually no clumping, flaking or smudging. RRP 15.00

High Impact – creates lashes with dramatic volume, length and intense colour without having to build up layers of mascara.

And lastly,
Lash Building Primer – I haven’t used lash primer before, but I like the fact that it dries really quickly so you don’t have to wait long to apply your mascara after, and helps it last longer and slick on more smoothly! RRP £10.00

Phew! Which one are you going to try?

Fashion's Night Out

Tomorrow is one of my favourite nights of the year, when all of New York turns out in their best togs, listens to bands and picks up some uber bargains. Yup, it's Fashion's Night Out. Already. Bloody hell.

Anyway, here's what I'll be up to*

Just like Natalie Imbruglia before me, I'm totally torn. Beach Fossils, one of my favourite bands, are playing at Bloomingdales, one of my favourite stores. But Best Coast, who I still haven't seen, are playing at Helmut Lang. And my friends, Bear Hands are playing with White Rabbits at Rockefeller Center. ARGH.

Sephora Soho
Stila’s iconic “Stila Girl” illustrationsare super cute but for the first time ever, Stila is bringing them to life and giving fans the chance to have their very own “Stila Girl” illustration created while receiving a makeover from a Stila Pro Artist. The first 50 people to stop by Stila’s touch-up booth at Sephora’s SoHo location will leave with a gorgeous glow and their personalized sketch. What are the chances of me being one of those 50 people?

Sephora Columbus Circle
Ooh, Peter Thomas Roth! My brother loves his skincare prods and i'm very excited about his new lash-enhancing liner, Lashes to Die For Liner. And there's a mini Lashes to Die For mascara for people who show. Hmm.

Sephora Times Square
GHD will be recreating iconic looks from Katy Perry's campaign and the lucky ladies getting their hair did, will also get their pics shot celeb photog Phillip Angert and there's lots of loot to be had. Ooh.

Sephora Herald Square
I'm also pretty tempted to hit the Herald Square store to try out Temptu airbrush make up.

Ricard Rojas Salon
For $40, fashionistas will receive a goodie bag packed with products from Oribe and Sebastian, a blow out and an express manicure at his Upper East Side salon. Sounds prettttttty good.

Marc Jacobs

No one will be surprised that a trip to the Marc Jacobs store on Mercer Street is on my to-do list. Dakota Fanning will be signing bottles of Oh, Lola! and answering my questions about the Twilight movies. Probably.

Vera Wang
Love Vera Wang? Love ice cream? Hunt down her ice cream truck, because Vera will be giving away samples of her new scent, Lovestruck, and ice cream treats all over the city, starting at her Mercer Street store at six pm.

Voli Vodka

And after all of this, I'll be hitting up each and every venue serving Voli Skinny Vodka cocktails - Spanx at Bloomingdales, the Allure lounge and Judith Ripka boutique.

Phew. I'm knackered.
Early night, I think.

*disclaimer: I will probs make one, maybe two of these events. I'm lazy.
