Staff Picks: Clarissa Hamlin Shares Her Weekly Faves




This holiday season, I had to upgrade a few items in my beauty repertoire. It was important for me to find a new must-have mascara, fragrance and colorful eye pencils. To perfect my eyes, I turned to one of my favorite retailers, Sephora for a new gem to add to my regime. I also went to my local Walmart and found colorful CoverGirl pencils to dress up my peepers. And to top it off, I took another look at my collection of fragrances, and re-discovered my love for one of Chanel's scents.

I feel every girl should have at least one go-to mascara, so I have been relying lately on Sephora Collection Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara. The ultra-black formula, priced at only $15, has Vitamin B5, jojoba and argan oils. Sephora offers several products that I love to use. This mascara has a multi-dimensional brush that separates lashes as it  coats them from root to tip. All it takes to achieve thick, dramatic lashes is a single brush stroke. My lashes are volumized, lengthened, strengthened, protected and nourished. The product produces many great benefits! 

To dress up my peepers further, I turn to CoverGirl Flamed Out Shadow Eye Pencils. For only $6 bucks, you get a shadow and liner in one. I love the ten blendable hues, which are all vivid and vibrant. My favorite shades are a matte purple called "Silver Frame," and the gilded yellow dubbed, "Gold Frame." I just apply the color by blending upward into my creases, and gliding the pencil along my upper lash lines. The creamy product also goes on smoothly, which makes the process so easy. My eyes always look merry and bright!

As far as my perfumes, I have a vast collection of them. A classic scent that is in my beauty arsenal is Chanel No. 5, a famous favorite among so many women for several decades. Created by Chanel to represent the ultimate in femininity, I have never gone wrong with spritzing on this $130 formula. The perfume features aldehydes, bergamot, lemon, neroli and ylang-ylang, with a heart of jasmine, rose, lily of the valley and iris. The base has vetiver, sandalwood, vanilla, amber and patchouli. Talk about such a smell fest of goodness! And the strong fragrance comes in a sleek, portable bottle that travels well. Love it!
