March Mascara Madness!

That title could imply I'm featuring several mascaras. Sorry if I misled Y'all. Not the case. Just one.

This is—I pinky swear—going to be our last mascara post for a while. Maybe the rest of 2016. (Do I hear applause? Or sighs of sadness?)



  1. TLC and I each have a makeup drawer full of not-empty-or-dried-out mascaras we need to do something with. Use them or get rid of them. Period. (And, yes, we are aware we’re not supposed to use a mascara for more than a few months—as we could get eye infections, etc. This hasn’t happened to either one of us—we’ll take our chances. We don't want/need an eye infection. Promise.)
  2. Baby Elle could truly arrive any day now (although her arrival is technically not scheduled for eighteen more days)! TLC is beyond ready for her new little Angel Girl Baby to pop out. We suspect we won’t have time to do much “mascara shopping/testing” for a few months.
  3. There comes a point in your life when you’re ready to stick with a product you love. At least until they stop making it. I’m going to go back to some of the mascaras in my drawer and see which was my most favourite. I’ll try to remember to report on that in the next few weeks.

I grabbed this mascara a couple of weeks ago. It was Buy One Get One for 50% off at the drugstore I frequent. I appreciate those kinds of sales! (I actually prefer the BOGO FREE sales the best!) After using it for a few days, I think TLC has a better opinion of it than me. The brush is interesting. She’s told me she’s found she has to put two-three coats of it on. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t dislike it. And I’m always always ready to give products a second and third shot. That is, if I don't despise them immediately. (This morning, when I applied it, I felt like it looked pretty dadgum good. For some reason, my lashes have too many days when they don’t seem to want to cooperate with me. Does that happen to y’all? I don’t know what it is. I do take my mascara off at night with three different products. I rarely use the same one two nights in a row. It’s a mystery to me. Like my bad hair days. What's the issue? Humidity? The way I sleep? No clue. Sheesh.)

Gotta scoot…MSH and I are trying to run away...we need to escape for a bit... 

Smooches and Hugs, Sillies Everywhere...and ta-ta for now!
