A highly recommended mascara for staring at the blank page before you as you open up the dirty window to let the sun illuminate the words you cannot find…
Yup, someone’s been watching re-runs of The Hills lately.
My Tivo recorded a massive 45-episode marathon last week.
To quote El Hub when he saw them in the menu, “Holy sh*t!”
I wore Giorgio Armani Beauty’s new Black Ecstasy Mascara in Obsidian Black ($32; one of four shades) during an epic 8-hour binge this week.
A recent addition to the brand’s permanent line (available now in three shades exclusively at Nordstrom, but coming to Giorgio Armani Beauty counters and giorgioarmanibeauty.com this September in four shades), ‘Black Ecstasy’ Mascara is designed to create longer, denser, thicker lashes to allow you to deliver intense gazes…
That intensity came in handy while I re-watched season two of The Hills and repeatedly shot disapproving glares at Spencer Pratt.
When he got his Machiavellian hooks into Heidi, and the two of them transformed into “Speidi,” the show kicked into redonkulous/crazy scripted/lame mode (seriously…so fake, but I can never stop watching it!), Black Ecstasy’s lightweight formula came in handy.
Because, you know, when you’re repeatedly rolling your eyes at the screen, you can’t let heavy lashes bring you down, man.
And then there’s the whole bundling effect… Thank goodness for that. Black Ecstasy gathers lashes into little groups of just a few hairs each that appear bundled and kind of spiky. It’s interesting and different, and it gives whomever happens to be sitting next to you on the couch something to focus on when they reach their TV breaking point and can no longer tolerate The Hills.
AVAILABILITY: Part of the permanent line; available now in three shades exclusively at Nordstrom, but coming to Giorgio Armani Beauty counters and giorgioarmanibeauty.com this September in four shades
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B (kinda pricey, and wish it created more volume)
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Still lovin’ this song, though…
