Origins GinZing Brightening Mascara, $18 (avail. mid-
Aug.), origins.com

You sit in one of these insane egg-shaped Marie Antoinette–esque Kelly Wearstler chairs, floating over the glory of Central Park, eating deviled eggs, surrounded by racks and racks of the most exquisite clothes on earth: Lunch at BG in New York is nothing but pleasure. Months ago, I sat across from the glamorous Jane Lauder, who runs Origins. Jane always has amazing rings; I am flabbergasted by rings and ring wearers because, somehow, I can’t make a ring happen. Jane is the ring champion: agates the size of golf balls, rutilated quartzes, vintage cabochons.

But even the rings—and they were exceptional that day—could not distract me; I was utterly preoccupied by her long, thick lashes. She would say something and I would startle, then realize I had been wondering, Are those extensions? Latisse? What mascara could that possibly be??!! Who has lashes like that??!!

When I finally asked, she flushed with enthusiasm. “Can you believe? It’s our new mascara—all natural! Origins!” It was hard to believe; I associate all-natural with serviceable, weekend-appropriate and decidedly un-mega.

She gave me a sample; I snatched it and then I snapped my bag shut. I expected it would be nice, but also that perhaps Jane was born with amazing lashes and I’d never noticed, blinded by the enchanting rings.

Not so: Every morning, I was amazed anew. I started calling Origins like a stalker, demanding to know when more would be available; I knew my tube was eventually going to run out. The launch kept getting delayed; every day I would bat my giant lashes at myself and attempt to swallow my anxiety. (Bonus I discovered during this long waiting period: Besides the lash-enormizing, this mascara lasts forever!)

When I tell you that you will be 100 percent amazed and thrilled when you put this mascara on, I am understating its powers. Especially if you, like me, forgo mega-mascaras because of parabens and whatnot right up in your eyes.
