BREAKING NEWS: Stila’s Multi-Effect Mascara ($20) creates thick, fatty-bo-batty lashes! Check out how my lashes go from zero to luscious in just two coats.
I gotta hand it to Stila for the curved brush they packaged with Multi-Effect Mascara. The thing flat-out rocks, helping the product deliver amazing thickness. The arch fits perfectly into the curve of my lashes (and probably yours, too), better than any other curved brush I’ve used before. With it I can really get into the lashes and coat them from root to tip.
I’m definitely loving the thickness Multi-Effect and its magical brush provide, but I was also hoping to see a more dramatic difference in length and lash curl. Stila says Multi-Effects is designed to create, well, multiple effects — longer, thicker and curlier lashes — but after two coats the difference I saw in length and curl were minimal. It held the curl but lengthened to a lesser degree than Shu Uemura’s Precise Volume Mascara does.

If you have naturally wimpy lashes like I do but aren’t looking to go lash crazy, consider giving Multi-Effect Mascara a try. It’s a basic thickener with a fantastic brush. Of course, when I want really dramatic lashes, I’m going to have to look elsewhere. I also wish it were a bit cheaper.

Let the rain fall down, and wake my dreams
Ever since the last season of The Hills wrapped up a few weeks ago, Monday nights have felt sort of empty. I’m desperate for my reality TV fix, so today when I was getting ready for work I popped in the Season 1 DVD of Laguna Beach. Talk about old school! It’s weird seeing Lauren show real emotion on camera.
Does anyone know what happened to Trey, the group’s resident do-gooder? I always liked him and wondered if he went on to accomplish more do-goodery after the show ended.
