So it isn’t exactly the first of the month but the sentiment stands. 

Happy 2016 – wait, what?

Yes – it is now the two thousandth and sixteenth year after dinosaurs. I think that’s how time works.

We (and by we, I mean me) here at The Lease are extremely excited for the coming year because we (me) have lots planned! I hope to keep giving you the best beauty buys as well as incorporate more lifestyle posts into the blog. So stay tuned, stay interested and please, for the love, share away. I want free goodies.


We start off the new year with a bargain buy! When you think about the fact that you need to switch out your mascara every month, dropping $28 on a high-end brand may start to seem a bit absurd. I am working towards finding better drugstore buys and figured I’d start with this one.

I am a massive cat-eye fan. It’s my go to look and I tend to feel it accentuates and highlights the shape of my eyes perfectly. This product promises to deliver spiked and volumized lashes with the brush tailored to hit the corners of your lashes. Let’s see how it delivers…

The Instruction:

We go over this every Monday – it’s mascara, remove the wand and apply being careful not to poke yourself in the eye!

The Beast:

Ya know how they say ‘you get what you pay for’? Well…you get what you pay for here. While this mascara will serve it’s purpose on a day-time, working look, it isn’t stellar and didn’t blow my mind. The spikes at the corners are there but I didn’t feel as though my lashes were plumped except that they were darker. While it’s a steal, it’s not even worth the five finger discount. Soz.
