Goodness – anyone else overwhelmed by all the make-up these days? The. Options. Are. Endless. Need I say more. But I have honestly found a great way to reduce the options on my shelf and keep it simple without jeopardizing quality.
So, this is the first
‘Manic’ Make-up Monday post. Each Monday (who doesn’t want to have FUN on Monday?!) I will share some of my tricks, tips and learnings (most of which have been the hard way). These won’t be in any order even though that would really make sense =)
These posts will include basic skin care – I am all about taking care of my ‘old’ skin. Primer. Concealer. Foundation. I think you get the point.
Now remember, I am NO pro. I am just an old sole that has continued to learn and since I travel often, I really look for ways to simplify that as well.
Anyway, I’m glad you’re here and I hope you find the information I share helpful or maybe it will just give you a little chuckle.
For this first item, I am going to go with…….MASCARA.
I have always had what I would consider ‘acceptable’ eye lashes. Dark. Curled. ‘ok’ long. But age has certainly taken a toll on my lashes, lol. I have tried the best of the best. Younique – 3D Fiber Lashes
Even a brand that was suggested by a fellow blogger around the same age –
But my ‘go to’ is this!
And here’s why. This tube lasts a little more than a month. I get it from QVC on the ‘buy one get one’ deal so pay $29 for 2. Ulta has this as well (which I have certainly had to buy from time to time when I didn’t order timely) for $23. One tube. It goes on smooth. It doesn’t flake. I said it DOES Not flake. It stays on all day. And honestly, I just love it.
If you want to give it a try, here are some options and reviews…..the link to QVC to watch the video AND purchase is HERE. Now, I was surprised sit only received 3.3 stars so people….if you don’t love it, you aren’t going to offend me. Honestly, you do you!
And here’s a video =)
And of course, here’s my lashes…and I do NOT typically do this.
If you’re willing to try out this mascara, PLEASE let me know if you like it. And check back next
manic Make-up Monday for an awesome ‘blush’ that I am totally in love with!
Cheers to an awesome Monday!
