Makeup Monday

So, it's Monday. In my life, Monday is akin to Hell Day. I only call it Hell Day because it means that I have class on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Seems like a life sentence, even though it usually flies.

Because I am always so dragged-down on Monday I figured that today I would talk about something that I actually enjoy: makeup!

I have recently been going through a mascara crisis. You see, after a few of my standby tubes ran out I was feeling really ambivilent towards all of them. They were all okay, but I had no reason that I needed to purchase them for any reason. Just... blah.

I didn't want to fork out $15 for Clinique High Impact Mascara because it seems like my tubes dry up far too fast. I saw great reviews for L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara but I found that it kept flaking in my eyes. Since I had already done the Maybelline Great Lash route and I was just feeling uninspired.

Enter Maybelline Define-A-Lash Volume Mascara. Swoon. This stuff rocks. It's smooth, doesn't clump, and makes all my teeny-tiny blonde lashes POP!

AND, BONUS! It was buy one, get one free at Walgreens a couple of weeks ago. Fabulous, no?

Just to prove I'm not lying to you (because why would I?), a before and after shot.


After: Now go forth and purchase and let your lashes pop. Amen.

Happy Monday!

Wow! What a difference that mascara made. I am currently using the regular Define a Lash and I like it ok, but I will definitely try the volume the next time I buy. Thanks for the tip!
