New Acuvue Contact Lenses for me!


On June 7th I’ll be visiting Dr. Susan Resnick to get an eye exam and get fitted for new Acuvue contact lenses (happy dance.) While I love getting SPEXY, I often wear contacts to take a break from my sexy librarian situation. How Spexy am I? I am nothing without you, my dear readers, so, [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: SkinCeuticals AOX EYE GEL


Does your pretty little face require specific skincare at different times of day? It’s a question worth pondering, particularly given the financial investment we make in our arsenal of topicals, lotions, potions, serums, and creams. Let’s face it (pun intended), keeping 30+ skin disguised as 25+ comes at a price. Isn’t it worth it to [...]

Kohl-y Moly: Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Trio

Physicians Formula Kohl

Kohl-rimmed eyes are kind of my thing. . . I get a little obsessed. Not sure what captures my heart most — the rich, inky quality of the kohl or the sultry, mysterious framing that kohl gives to eyes. Can’t quite put my finger on it, but a good kohl situation makes me very happy. [...]

Make the Effort – Do Your Makeup

Eyes 1

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Absolution Le Soin Regard

Absolution Le Soin Regard

Over the last year or so I have become a little bit obsessed with eye creams. While Iʼm not yet at the stage where I need serious help around the peepers (praises to all that is holy with a wish that the day never comes), every once in a while I have one of those [...]

Lash (R)Evolution: Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer


I can’t decide. Is Hourglass Flim Noir Lash Lacquer revolutionary or evolutionary?   Revolutionary: because it represents a development within the lash category that does not currently exist. Evolutionary: because it’s radically new and showcases a dramatic change outside of what’s presently offered. The groundbreaking lash product is unlike anything I have ever seen in [...]

SPEX CLUB: Let’s all be SPEXY…Refer a Friend


As you know (from previous posts) I am a ginormous fan of SPEX CLUB, a too-cool-for-school website that offers hipster eye-wear for cheap.  And based on the comments and rave reviews that you guys leave have left on my SPEX CLUB blog posts and vlog post –I feel it’s safe to say that you’re pretty [...]
