What I’m Wearing: Not as “Eyes Poppin’, Lips Bussin” as NeNe, But Close!

19 Dec

I consider myself a reasonably fashionable person and as such, I thought it would be interesting to create a category within my blog devoted solely to what I wear…and not necessarily apparel.  While I love blending colors, textures, baubles and accessories; in my line of work I typically opt for more conservative attire (with the exception of a snazzy broach, chunky jewelry or a bedazzled pair of stilettos; ah yes, and on Casual Friday when ALL bets are off).   But just because the workplace calls for a more subtle expression of fashion does not mean that your overall look has to be so reserved.  I applied this very concept as I prepared for work yesterday. 



A sucker for cosmetics and an excuse to try something new, I roamed Target a few days ago, looking to replace my N.Y.C. Thickening Mascara that had run out weeks ago (which reduced me to putting water in the tube and shaking well in order to get the last few remnants out; a thin line between trifling and resourceful, I know).  Remembering the heavily Rihanna-endorsed Eyelights Mascara, I went to the Covergirl section of the Health & Beauty area to see what all the fuss was about.  After reading the CG backdrop that claimed the mascara would make my eyes four times brighter than my natural bare-lashed state, I figured I would take a chance and give it a try. 



On the plus side, Eyelights Mascara is waterproof, so not once did it smudge or come off until I was ready for bed and washed my face.  Other than that however, I didn’t notice a whole lot of difference from the other mascara’s that I’ve used in the past.  Don’t get me wrong, I am not knocking Eyelights because since using it, many a co-worker has professed being able to see my lashes from across the room.  I just feel like Covergirl’s boasts of four times brighter eyes didn’t ring all that true for me.  That being said, I do really like the defining brush and the application is pretty seamless so “pop-less” eyes notwithstanding, I’m wearing Covergirl Eyelights in Black Gold.


I’m Packing Up,
