Beauty Bite: Pomegranate and Strawberry Smoothie

Beauty Bite: Pomegranate and Strawberry Smoothie
When browsing the farmer's market, most people skip over the pomegranates. But most wouldn't if they knew that this oxidant rich fruit which is high in vitamin k and zinc could lead to better, younger looking skin! This fruit which ironically, is one of the world's oldest fruit, can actually prevent premature aging.

Product Review: TARTE Mascara Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1

Product Review: Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4-in-1 Mascara 
Product Description & Claims: (From Sephora's Website)
  • Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! 4-in-1 Mascara could be considered a push-up bra for your lashes—a 4-in-1 (lengthening, curling, volumizing, and conditioning) dermatologist- and clinically-proven to increase the appearance of lash volume by 424% after applying giving dramatic, thick and sexy lashes. 
  • This mascara contains Skinvigorating™ ingredients like:
1. Rice bran wax to help lengthen lashes 

2. Carnauba wax, an emollient wax that ensures a smooth application
3. ProVitamin B5 treats and thickens lashes
4. Olive esters condition, treat, and protect lashes
5. Mineral pigments known for their soothing and softening properties.

My Experience:
I hauled this mini during an Ulta trip recently for $10 bucks. Now, just for the record- I'm a firm believer in drugstore mascara's. Never have I really bothered with a high end mascara but, well...let's just say it ended up in my shopping basket. It seems to have a throw back wand with the traditional short bristles. When I first pulled the wand out I could see plenty of product which seemed to be on the "wet" side. The color is definitely jet black and coats each lash nicely. However, I noticed some clumping and was not happy about that. After, 11 hours of wear I noticed it stayed on without flaking or smudging.
