Covergirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time I’ve gotten my hands on some colored mascara. Back when I was in high school and wasn’t even documenting my beauty buys yet, I had a drugstore tube of blue mascara that I loved to bits. I didn’t even have a concept of beauty product criteria yet, so I don’t remember if it could hold a curl or volumize. So here’s another go at colored mascara—now that it’s hot again!—in the form of Covergirl Katy Kat Eye Mascara in Perry Blue (PHP450).

Project Vanity Wanderlust Kit

Confession: I am the girl who over-packs no matter what. When I travel with family, it is to the dismay of my mother to see just how many bath and beauty products I force into a small case. I set a rule for myself that everything has to fit into a pouch or case, but I’m always cramming things in to the point of case deformity. And even in my purse, friends often chuckle over why I insist on bringing enough makeup to do a full face from start to finish. Needless to say, the first thing that usually breaks from may vanity kit is the zipper. lol

When the Project Vanity kits came out, I was thrilled and thought the concept was genius. It’s made for hoarders like me who have a difficult time curating their kikay kit. These themed pouches (and one bag) do the thinking for you. It’s kind of like a subscription box, but with a receptacle you can tote around daily. Here’s what I brought to my vacation that significantly lessened my luggage weight:

My Version of Survival Makeup

There are short trips, and there are long trips. This one went well over a week in a place with bright sunshine and chilly wind, but little humidity. Meaning, we’re not in Kansas anymore. In packing for the trip, I went into full-on survivalist mode with my makeup bag. (As survivalist as a beauty junkie could get, I suppose.) As usual, the goal was to be able to create many different looks with as few pieces as I could manage. Challenge accepted.

Covergirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner in Intense Black 300

Having almost-monolids and narrow eyes, a gift from my Asian heritage, is a tricky thing to play around with. My teenage years were spent experimenting with eyeliner techniques to make my peepers look bigger and rounder. To this day, I try out the liner trends from time to time to see how far they can take me. It’s usually a matter of going thicker or thinner in certain places and tightlining away. I got to enjoy my latest experiment with the new Covergirl Intensify Me! Liquid Liner (USD 8).

Covergirl The Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara

I have to cop to being a little mascara-lazy lately. The only formulas that work for me are either waterproof or strongly water-resistant, and they’re honestly not  the easiest to remove at the end of a long day. My lash-enhancers have, therefore, been relegated to the use-on-nights-out-only pile until I received a package from Covergirl containing their latest,The Supersizer by Lashblast  Mascara in Very Black.
