Man, oh, man! There’s just so much I love about L’Oreal’s Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara ($5). Two coats transform my eyelashes from toy car to monster truck, and at just five bones, it’s also pretty cheap.
After two coats, WOWZA!!

At first, I was seduced by the color (a deep black), and then teased by its ability to hold a curl all day long. But things didn’t stop there; my infatuation grew once I saw its ability to thicken and seemingly lengthen, too.
L’Oreal claims their makeup gurus engineered it to plump lashes with — brace yourself for marketing speak — “revolutionary lash-pumping technology!” and “hydra-collagen.” (The lingo always sounds corny, doesn’t it?)
Too good to be true

I’m looking for inspiration this afternoon… What was the best part of your day?
