Things I love today: Best mascara ever

I have tried all kinds of mascara, and nothing beats Lancome's Flextencils. Why Lancome insists on giving all their products bizarre, unmemorable names is another post for another time. This mascara is just perfect: think enough to do the trick without looking like Tammy Faye. Plus, it is water-resistant, curls your lashes, never runs and doesn't irritate sensitive eyes.

Before you buy, sign up for the Lancome email list and wait for a good promotion. You'll get great sample offers weekly, much better than the in-store or Sephora deals. Every cosmetic company should offer online deals as good as Lancome's. Why do Clinique, etc. require you to visit a department store to get the goods? Philosophy is another great email list and Stila's is almost there. Any other email list suggestions? Share them in the comments section below.

Any suggestion for an eyelish curler...I have to buy a new one. Last year I bought a top of the line curler from Sephora, but when I went back to the store to buy refills, I was informed they didn't sell them. Apparently the manufacturer believes it is time to buy a new product (the old one is "used")...

Personally, I am scared of eyelash curlers and don't use one. I know it's wrong but they are so menacing. I would go the cheapo route since you got burned last time. Maybe try the ELF curler?

This sounds a lot like the new trend of saying that mascara expires after three weeks. C'mon people!

The quality is pretty good considering the prices. Jean was happy with her order except for one compact with a cracked case.
