When it comes to our makeup application, applying mascara has always been the quintessential finishing touch. But, it can sometimes be tricky to get those pesky bottom lashes evenly coated without flaking, smearing or fading.
We talked with BeautyStat’s very own Erin Sutera and celebrity makeup artist Bruce Grayson, to give us some prime tips to keeping our bottom lashes looking clump-free and gorgeous!
Giving your bottom lashes a coat of mascara is key: “Top and bottom [lashes] really open up the eye,” says BeautyStat senior writer and makeup artist Erin Sutera. “But …
How many times have I extended my cat-eye liner a little too long, or outlined my lips to look too full? This is where the DiorShow Flash Corrector ($25.00) comes in handy. Now, you can “erase” your mistakes…
It’s meant to be a corrector for when one ‘s lip stain goes astray… one’s lipstick has been applied a little too heavily, use the DiorShow Flash Corrector. There are three extra erasing pods in the bottom of this piece to give this product more longevity (which I always appreciate).
I often have small dots …
Milani never disappoints when it comes to their color ranges and on-trend products. They just introduced this Grandissimo Lashes in Black ($5.49) and the application brush is so big!
Bigger is better when it comes to adding mega volume, and this mascara creates a false lash effect. It’s smear-proof, non-clumping and paraben-free, too. Lashes are all the rage, as so many brands keep on expanding their mascara categories. Kudos to Milani for the affordable price, too!
L’Oréal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes
Available at CVS, Target, Walmart, Kmart and Walgreens. Available online at …
I spy a trend here! Felt-tip liners are all the rage, as they allow you to create quiet and bold looks just by application. Milani has launched Eye Tech Bold ($7.49) in Black. I have reviewed ones from Stila, Dior, Smashbox and this one is just as easy-to-use!
What is nice about it is that with the felt-tip point you can really control the line — whether you want a thin line along the lashes or a more bold, thicker cat-eye, this product, like the others, delivers.
I love holding these as …
“Another mascara to love,” I said as I thought I heard that I’d be receiving a new DiorShow mascara. No, DiorSNOW! My, my how technology is changing the way products are made. Read on to learn about this incredible new launch known as DIORSNOW.
Introducing the newly launched DiorSnow Skincare Collection, which features exclusive Icelandic Glacial (TM) Water Technology. This water is protected from the thousand-year-old immaculate glaciers of Iceland, and is said to be gifted with unique brightening powers!
This new technology took over a decade to make, with a formula …
Summer collections are starting to roll into stores — and this one will make you feel like a GODDESS! Estée Lauder introduces BRONZE GODDESS Summer 2013 Collection, and I can already feel the warmth from the hues of the products. This collection was inspired by the sultry shades and exotic senses of the Caribbean; I find myself daydreaming about Parrot Cay at this very moment…
Turn up the heat through a spectrum of summer shadows with NEW Limited Edition Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in Batik Sun (pictured/sampled). This palette …
Love the curve of the applicator, and, knowing how much I wear DiorShow, I was over the (full) moon to give the New DiorShow Iconic OverCurl Mascara ($28.50) a go!
The “Wave Curl” brush was inspired by hair and lash curling tools used by professional stylists in order to capture each lash from root to tip. I normally slant my applicator wands to get a better “hold” on my lashes, so this “Wave Curl” seemed to fit my lashes more naturally and went on more organically — as it hugs each and every lash.
I love seeing a two-sided product! To me, it means the epitome of a product that is multifunctional. This was the case when sampling the new Dior Twin Set Eyeshadow Duo ($30.00 each) that was recently launched as part of their Chérie Bow Spring 2013 Collection.
One side is to be applied to the entire lid, the other side can highlight and transform the look by adding both texture and shine. New to this line are Beige Ribbon, Ballerina Pink and Grey Sigh.
I used the creamy colors alone for a …

One word comes to mind when I tried this Votre Vu Eiffel Power Lengthening & Fortifying Mascara ($24.00): PIGMENT! This is one of the blackest formulas I have ever tried. I will admit, when I first took it out of the box (which is very elegant) it reminded me of one of top sellers on the market today: Diorshow ($25.00).
The brush also has very large bristles, just like the Diorshow. However, I do feel they ares a tad smaller. Due to this design, I was able to get every lash …
