Infused with collagen and Hyaluronic spheres, L’oreal’s latest Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara is an improved version of the oh-so-famous Voluminous mascara that can easily replace your fake lashes.

Just like the Voluminous, this makes my lashes instantly thicker and darker with just a coat or two. The brush is a lot bigger than the Voluminous but unlike other mascaras with big wands (Hello Cover Girl’s Lash Blast or Max Factor’s 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper!), it still reaches the base of my lashes and those puny bottom lashes without smearing all over the place.

Ladies of color, I will be doing a Q&A with Celebrity Makeup Artist Sam Fine, the man behind some of the iconic makeup looks on supermodels and actresses such as Iman, Tyra Banks, Jennifer Hudson, Queen Latifah, Vanessa Williams, Janet Jackson and more!

I am always on the hunt for a good lip balm to fight my curse of chapped lips, and my latest find is good old ChapStick’s newest invention, ChapStick True Shimmer.

The ChapStick True Shimmer is basically your regular ChapStick with tiny silver shimmer to keep your lips moisturized while giving them that extra pop of shine. All you have to do is glide it on and your lips will feel instantly softer and shinier with no stickiness. It also comes in four yummy flavors – Botanical Berry (my favorite), Tropical, Peppermint Rush and Blended Fruit Sherbet – which all smell great! Plus it only retails $2.79 and is available at all drugstores nationwide. So ladies, no more excuses for walking around with chapped lips!

Now you can win a free ChapStick True Shimmer in Tropical or Peppermint Rush to try for yourself! Simply leave a comment under this entry with your name and e-mail address by July 16th 2009. The winners will be picked randomly and notified via e-mail. Good luck!
