Clarins double fix mascara – kiss smudging goodbye!

Feeling antsy when trying new mascaras and even waterproof ones? For many, smudging tends to occur after some time. The problem? Waterproof mascara may be waterproof, but it sure isn’t oil-proof to your eye cream or the natural oils from your face.

Those feelings of optimism when the latest lasting mascara is launched are often overwhelmed by disappointment (and possibly embarrassment) when you see the mascara smudge by the end of the day. I now only test makeup that risk going wrong on days out with my good friends. Because good friends will tell you when something is terribly wrong instead of letting you discover it in the mirror later on. :)

The only other options then would be Japanese mascaras – these form a polymer tubing around your lashes (e.g. dejavu fiberwig and canmake gokubuto). More recently, Maybelline has also caught on with their version: Lashionista. These are great for everyday wear as the tubings only come off with warm water. This means fuss free removal in a hot shower and great for traveling! But I digress :)

Other mascaras do provide really excellent solutions for building volume and length. I’ve fallen in love with quite a few others (hello Dior…) which I use for my make up clients and models who don’t have an issue with smudging. But now comes the ultimate solution! Clarins double fix mascara.

Organize your wires with a handy wrap

With the increasing number of gadgets I carry around for travel, the corresponding number of wires have been adding up! I used to toss them all into a pouch but after a while, the wires would just become a tangled mess. Has this happened to you too? :)

I’ve been wanting to come up with a solution for some time and finally got down to it today! Made from fabric and some velcro, this wrap helps to separate your wires neatly. What’s more, it can be rolled up for storage in a cupboard or a suitcase without taking up additional, unnecessary space!
