Barbie Loves MAC Color Collection of the Year
Barbie Loves M·A·C
It's been years since a collection came out that was so exciting, we had to run from town to town to pick up any colors we thought, and indeed were, gone in the blink of an eye. Worth every gallon of gas spent to score this and that now-discontinued colors. Part marketing genius. Other part gorgeous color when we'd had enough of winter. Bravo M·A·C! We can't wait to see what 2008 brings.

Nvey Eco organic mascara Best Blue Mascara
Nvey Eco Organic Moisturizing Mascara
Finding the plushest blue for your lashes is a cumbersome task. When the color's perfect, as Nvey Eco's is, it brightens your eyes and doesn't look 80's-scary. This formulation is gorgeous and leaves the longest lashes without clumping or smearing. Even with two coats we barely had to comb through yet still had amazingly long lashes that actually felt healthy thanks to some B5. The amount of blue in this formula was perfect and perked our eyes right up. That it's made with certified organic products was a huge bonus too.
