So this past weekend, one of my coworkers told me that I had to watch this stand-up comedy special on Netflix – Ali Wong: Baby Cobra. If you have NOT watched this by now and you have Netflix, you are missing out big time. I was laughing so hard, I am sure if someone was around me, they would not have known if I was laughing or crying. Seriously, it was HILARIOUS. Do yourself a favor, especially when you are having a bad day – and watch this special!
Now on to a beauty post! By request, from my dear friend Florence down in San Diego, it’s time to talk about the Best Mascaras! I do have to tell you though…I have ONE tried and true mascara that I have been using for YEARS. I have stick-straight Chinese eyelashes, which makes it very difficult to keep them curled. Every mascara that I have ever tried – expensive, drugstore, mascara primer, EVERYTHING… has failed to keep my eyelashes curled. Usually, they fall right back to being as straight as can be after applying. So what works for me? It’s the Covergirl Lash Blast Waterproof Volume Mascara in Very Black. Best thing I have ever discovered. It definitely makes my eyelashes look a bit fuller and longer – you have to try it! Only bad thing is that it is extremely difficult to take off. I recommend using some sort of cleansing oil, coconut oil, whatever oil you’re currently using to get it all off.
The other mascaras I have listed on here, are some of the best selling ones out on the market right now. I have heard great things and even have friends who swear by some of these. Tip: A few times a year, Nordstrom will have a buy 2, get 1 free Mascara Madness Event. That is a great time to try some out and save a few bucks!
Has anyone tried a mascara not listed on here that works well on Asian eyelashes? If so, let me know! I love trying new things!

OMG Ali Wong! I watched it TWICE on Friday… “Lean in? I just want to LIE DOWN.”
