I recently discovered Estée Lauder's Double Wear mascara – an eyelash miracle when I couldn't find my usual mascara. And now I'm officially addicted. Not only does it literally double the length of my lashes, the pigment is super-super black – just how I like it. Plus it's 100% smudge-proof, lasting up to 15 hours – always handy when you're out on a bender! One word of caution, though – results this good don't come without some effort to remove, so invest in an oil-based eye make-up remover. But, heh, what's an extra five minutes at the end of the night when you look like Brigitte Bardot?
