Okay, we’ve all seen it. The Maybelline ads in the pages of your favorite magazine showing models with tarantula-like lashes…I’m sure your reaction was pretty much like mine, “huh, since when does one desire clumpy lashes?” Lashes are supposed to be long, luxurious and fluffy. Well, even though Cosmo might tell you clumpy lashes are in, unless you’re Twiggy, or a Drag Queen, they are incredibly difficult to pull off without looking like you had a little too much to drink before, and slept on your face all night.
But here comes Colossal SpiderEffect Mascara ($8), coming out June 2016, fusing the volume and lift of the Colossal Chaotic in a much more wearable formula. Ladies with fine lashes, listen up — this mascara is life changing! The unique, cone shaped bristles grab and group lashes together to create sculpted volume, groping the lashes to a point, and creating extreme volume. You’ll never dream of extensions again! It’s inspired by the lashes of our favorite celebrities: bold, perfectly sculpted and voluminous.
Sweep the mascara on the bristled side from roots to tips for instant curl, volume, and length. Use the tapered tip for shorter lashes at the corners. I applied several coats — though I must confess… I brushed through them to my liking. They were so big and fluttery, and lasted all throughout a sweaty yoga class.

In honor of the beautiful lashes, Maybelline sent me the perfect tool to document my lash —perfect selfie, the LuMee iPhone Case ($49.95- $59.95). You may have seen Kim flaunting it on Instagram, and we understand why. In a world where your selfie has become your biggest asset, it’s important we never miss an opportunity to capture the perfect moment. Don’t you just hate when you’re trying to snap a pic and it’s just too dark? This brilliant front-lit smartphone case is changing the way people shoot and share social media. Developed by a professional photographer, the LED lighting on both the left and right sides of the case gives you a soft and beautiful light for every occasion. It won’t drain your battery because it charges separately. The light is warm, not harsh like a camera flash. The dimmer bottom controls the intensity of the lighting out. Use for selfies, face timing, Skype, make-up light, and Snapchat.
