Beauty Buff: Tried-and-True Mascara

1075
It’s late.

You’re tired.

You’ve come home from a long day of being amazing and you barely have the energy to crawl into bed, let alone pull a jackhammer out of the closet to get your mascara off.

Well, scrub no more!  Here are some tried-and-true mascaras that are near bullet proof and can be removed with just water. You read that right. A little warm water, a washcloth and you’ll be in bed before M.A.S.H. is on.  (That’s still a thing, right?)

These mascaras work by creating a polymer “tube” around the lashes.  The warm water releases the bond and the “tube” just slides off the lash, nearly intact—creepily looking a little like spider legs.  Just a few downward swipes and you are mascara-free and, even better, at several different price-points you are bound to find your perfect mascara.

L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tube Mascara

10823302-3384358595358275

[MSRP $9.95]

You can find this in any chain or drug store out there.  The double-ended tube holds primer and mascara.  This one is unique (and great) because the primer creates the tubes AND lengthens your lashes in the process.

PRO: Affordable and lengthening

CON: Two steps

Clinique Lash Power Mascara

[MSRP $16.50-$17.50]

Found in any department store and online.  This has a 24-hour wear and is perfect for someone who is active because it withstands sweat, moisture and all that jazz.  Comes in two styles Lash Power and Lash Feathering. Personally, I love the original Lash Power because the small brush catches every single lash.

PRO: Great natural looking lashes and there’s always that sweet GWP

CON: Not an incredibly buildable formula

Trish McEvoy Lash Curling Mascara

[MSRP $31.50]

This mascara is bad break-up proof.  It acts like true waterproof mascara without the sandblaster.  Also this one hits my personal holy trinity—it lengthens, thickens and has easy removal. The formula also comes in  a volumizing formula with a smaller, more detailed brush.

PRO: Near-perfect Mascara

CON: Only sold at Nordstrom brick and mortar stores in Utah, but also available online at www.trishmcevoy.com

Here's one from our upcoming Jan/Feb issue out on stands in just a few days. We hope you’ll grab a copy and enjoy every moment of reading it.⁠

Mary photobombs Lisa Barlow at the premiere party for Real Housewives of Salt Lake. Below is a snippet from Mary's last editor's letter:⁠

"It’s all a little crazy.⁠
Sometime in 2020, the world stopped making sense for a lot of us. Between one of the ugliest election cycles the U.S. has ever been through and the most mysterious disease most of us have ever experienced, normal was canceled. We can’t get together with friends, hug our loved ones, be in the room with them when they die. But somehow we have to go on, right? Somehow we have to continue to work and love and laugh. This issue of Salt Lake magazine holds a lot of frivolity, the main one being an extremely silly TV show, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There I am in a pink fur coat in a car with our cover housewife, Lisa Barlow and her boys."⁠

Pick up our Jan/Feb issue at your local grocer and read the full letter. ❤️

Mary's last-minute holiday gift ideas from last year are still as true and relevant today...⁠

"The planet we live with and the creatures on it need all kinds of things. Polar bears need presents, tree frogs in the Amazon need gifts, our Utah canyons and our national parks need help."⁠

There was never a time there wasn’t Mary Malouf. Until now. Today, Mary died when a rogue wave swept her out to sea off the coast of Northern California. Only she – perhaps the world’s foremost lover of Bronte, BBC mysteries and, of course, Moby Dick – would appreciate such poetic drama.

“I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I'll go to it laughing.” — Mary Brown Malouf. Ooops. Herman Mellville.
