Brown mascara, wha!?

Ain’t nobody got time for that!



That’s the first thing I thought when I saw Dolce & Gabbana’s new PassionEyes Duo Mascara ($32).

It comes in three shades — black, blue (referred to as Blue Indigo online, but it’s called Blu Indaco on the tube) and brown — the least exciting of which, for me, is the brown, mostly ’cause the tint is almost indistinguishable on my dark lashes.

A brown mascara could come in handy if you’re very fair, or if you don’t want your lashes to look too dark or stark, so if that sounds like a good fit for you, haaaaay! — now you’ve got a PassionEyes option.

According to D&G, PassionEyes gives a double boost to lashes, amplifying lash length and curl, which is why they bill it as a “Duo Mascara.” Tapioca polymers lock lashes into place, while beeswax enhances flexibility and glycerin conditions.

The look? How about feminine and curvy (they say they were inspired by a classic Dolce & Gabbana dress)?

Today I tested Nero, the black shade, and Blue Indigo, the blue one, and they reminded me of mellower versions of YSL Faux Cils because most of the volume-enhancement occurs at the roots and slowly tapers toward the tips.

Both colors have a gorgeous glossy finish — very shiny and smooth — without any bumps or clumps.

Buuuuut…I’m a greedy mascara kitty, and with PassionEyes, I find myself wanting more. More length, more curl, more lift. More — I don’t know — $32-caliber passion, I guess.

I can’t even see a big difference between the blue and black shades, much less the brown. Pretty or not, that’s not cool.

I mean, PassionEyes seems perfectly adequate for a natural lash look, or if you already have luscious, long lashes and merely crave more definition and a tad more length.

But it is $32…

And I have naturally wimpy lashes and need serious help in that department. I like big statement lashes, but PassionEyes is like a chaste peck on the cheek.

Yeah… Forget that. I want a wholly inappropriate, tongue-down-the-throat passion-fueled KISS! :)

Best if you like your lashes demure, or if you’re a Dolce & Gabbana die-hard fan.

In oddly thrilling news (for me)…

I got cute curtains for my office!

I found these Amelie Scripted Curtains on pier1.com today, and get this — they were on SALE!

When it comes to home decorating, I figure I might as well focus on the parts of the condo I spend the most time in, right?

I don’t know… I’m perpetually lost when it comes to interior design.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Cute curtains! And your inappropriate kiss comment made me laugh. Yeah, I’m not wow’d by the D&G mascara pics either. I definitely crave much more volume and am less concerned with length. I’m going to have to stick with my Faux Cils (until I get to a Chanel counter to try Le Volume, of course). :)

    I love the way you look with makeup, but this look, with minimal to no makeup, is one of the prettiest looks I’ve ever seen on you.
