…another beauty post…

After Christmas I realized I had racked up quite a bit in gift cards….to Sephora. I had been wanting a new mascara and lipstick and had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to get. I purchased the YSL: ROUGE VOLUPTÉ – Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 in 1 Nude Beige. I love it. The color works as a very neutral nude that also draws attention to my lips. It reminds me of the colors they wore in the ’70s.

My second purchase was the Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Nylon Lash Extension System. I heard nothing but wonderful things about this product and was anxious to try. Unfortunately, I am one of the few who don’t care for this mascara. I wear contacts and sometimes the fibers blur my vision when I’m putting it on. But the worst part is that your lashes feel slightly sticky all day and often stick together. After wearing the product all day I came home to find residue just below my brow line from where my lashes have been resting against my skin. I don’t have the receipt for this product but otherwise I would take it back. I think I will only be using it for when I go out at night. I think i could go on about this mascara but I’ll stop before I get too upset about the $35 I paid.
