Lash Round-Up ~ Best Mascaras: Summer 2015

Summer has (un)officially begun and as the temperatures rise, every girl needs the power to create a cool breeze with a mere batting of her luscious lashes. Today, I'm looking at three new mascaras that promise larger than life lashes and I'll tell you which ones will give you eye-catching results and which ones should get the side-eye. On the beauty bench are:

The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara from Covergirl

Iconoclast Mega Volume Lacquer Mascara from butter LONDON

Roller Lash from Benefit Cosmetics

Best Mascara Summer 2015
Volume is the watch word for lashes this summer and beauty brands are granting great lashes by waving their magic wands. In other words, it's all about the brush. With curved stems, flat panel edges, long and short bristles and some that resemble medieval fighting sticks, a girl has got to bone up on her application techniques to get what she wants. Fortunately, most brands are happy to oblige and provide detailed instructions on how to use their newly reinvented wheels so let's dive in to see who delivers on their promises.

Join the Neutrogena #WipeForWater Movement.

This Earth Month, Neutrogena Naturals is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to help save water. With the western U.S. facing serious drought conditions, this partnership couldn't have come at a better time. The average U.S. household wastes about 10,000 gallons of water every year and every day, about five of those gallons are used for washing your face. Luckily, Neutrogena has figured out a way to save those gallons and also keep you at your beautiful best.

L'Oreal Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme

I'm in an official straight hair phase. I wear my hair straight in the fall and winter because it's impossible to keep my naturally curly hair straight in the summer, humidity in NY being what it is. But, with straight strands comes the risk of heat damage and there are few things worse for curly girls than too much heat. Blow dryers and flat irons wreak havoc on fragile curls, causing dryness, breakage and frizz. Enter heat protectants. I don't let appliances near my hair without them and today I'm taking a look at Smooth Intense Xtreme Straight Creme from L'Oreal.
