My skin is acting up (it’s probably upset about Summer coming to an end), so I just took off all my makeup and city-grime with Eve Lom’s Cleanser, and then smeared on the Rescue Mask. This thing has won a ton of awards and I get why. It’s so cooling on the skin, calms irritation, and deep cleans with kaolin clay and honey to decongest even the crankiest faces.
After years of being a devotee to Dior mascara, I’ve changed my ways (I still love you Dior, trust) and I’ve fallen for this tube from Eyeko. The brush, with spiralized short and long bristles gives the perfect, spider-y, mod look to my lower lashes and makes my upper lashes look a thousand miles long (hyperbole, but truly, they look fantastic.) Plus the formula is full of healthy ingredients that nourish your lashes so they don’t get sad and fall out. 4 thumbs up from me (counting my big toes, too).

What about you?
Currently working on a post about taking the weekend to relax instead of uh, partying (sometimes it’s good to stay in), and one of the things I’m writing about is the important of SCENT. Currently obsessed with Diptyque’s Patchouli candle, which I burn both when I want to relax and also when I need to get down to work.
Also, I plan to spend this weekend staying in, so if you’ve got any beauty or fashion Qs (or suggestions for xoJane/xoVain articles - hit me up while I’m around!)
