Gee, I sure do have a lot of make-up. And part of the fun of make-up, for me, is the thrill of pretty colors in pretty packages that have the potential to make me feel pretty. Notice I said FEEL pretty; I did not say that make-up MAKES you pretty. You are pretty because you are you, a confident, secure woman, not because your eyes are lined well or you have nice blush. Make-up should be fun and should enhance your feelings about life. It should not scare you or make you feel bad or be your ONLY reason for life. I shudder when I hear about women who won't let their significant others see them without make-up, so they get out of bed super early to put their faces on. That is sad and bad and makes me feel terrible for them (and think of all the good sleep they are giving up). Make-up then is a chore and a need and a crutch, when I feel it should be none of those things.
So, on to fun stuff:
See those orange and pink tubes? The orange ones are my beloved tubes of Cover Girl Lash Blast, one of the greatest mascaras ever. This stuff is soooo good! You can put it on nice and thick for slightly bad-girl lashes...give yourself second coat for super naughty-girl lashes, or go for three for the super-slutty-and-happy-about-it lashes. Or, you can give the wand a good wipe with a tissue before applying, and get nice natural-girl-with-oomph lashes. The stuff stays on, comes off easily, and makes your lashes look thick and dark and yummy.
And the pink tubes...ahhhh, the pink tubes. Those are tubes of Lash Blast Luxe. Yes, the luxury version! These are the two colors I have: Black Platinum and Black Cabernet. These colors are the regular black mixed with shimmery, sparkly colors...the Black Platinum has silvery sparkles, and the Black Cabernet has purpley shimmer. They come in other colors, like a blue and a green. Oh, love love love!
Now, many people are scared of shimmery, sparkly stuff, and may especially be scared of it in a mascara. But I think that actually these shimmer mascaras are more about the thrill of opening the tube and seeing the special colors and thinking, "Ooooo, pretty!" rather than making your eyelashes sparkle. I put them on and didn't see a huge change, but I did have a fun little secret: I was wearing princess-y mascara! My eyelashes are thick and sexy and colorful! Wheeee!
If you have green or brown eyes, try the purple one. If you have blue or green eyes, try the dark blue or green ones. And the black is for everyone.
They work well and they make the wearer feel happy. They give you a little thrill. That is good stuff!
