Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Have a smudge-proof eye this summer

I hate going out during the day. However, work and errands beckon, so I really don't have a choice! I've been out in the sun for the past four days (!!!) but I'm not too worried since I'm currently testing out a sunblock with SPF130. Yeah. I'm smug.

Anyway, it's too hot and bothersome to wear eyeshadows so I depend heavily on eyeliner and mascara to keep my eyes looking good. After much experimentation, I discovered the best combination to get an absolutely smudge-free eye - it doesn't matter how long I was out or how much I sweat and oil up. This combo is deadly. I've been to Tagaytay, Batangas, Marikina, and all over Manila with these two products on and they've never failed me.


The VMV Hypoallergenics Ooh-La-Lash! Volumizing Mascara delivers a clean finish to your lashes and doesn't feel heavy on the lids. It also won't make your precious lashes brittle; the heat and the wrong kind of mascara may sometimes end up doing damage. This doesn't smudge at all.

The Majolica Majorca Perfect Automatic Liner may not be as opaque as I hoped, but once I got the hang of it, I got the perfect solid line that doesn't give me raccoon eyes at the end of the day.

See? As simple as 1-2-3. I highly recommend these for summer!
