Taking a Break

I will not be posting any new blogs for the month of January.  I decided I needed to take a break from posting on all social media for the first month of the year.  So I hope everyone stays safe and enjoys their time with family and friends!

Posting again February 8th!

Covergirl Clump Crusher

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and are looking forward to their new year plans!
I was trying to find a good drug store mascara that doesn't clump.  That is my mission, always looking for a good mascara that doesn't clump.  Why is it so difficult to find one?! 
I saw this on Sharon Farrell's channel and was curious to try it.  Like all new mascaras it was nice and went on well.  I did like how it didn't smear on my top lashes and then run under my bottom lashes. 



What did I not like about it?  I don't really care for the wand.  It seems to be difficult to apply in evenly.  I'll either get a lot of product on my lashes then nothing.  It doesn't clump up, it's really dry in our house because of the heater right now, but I'd take this over crumbly, clumpy mascara.  It's worth buying to try it from your local drug store.  I did enjoy it and would buy it again.  So if anyone else has tried it, tell me what you liked or didn't like about it…

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

In our family we celebrate Christmas, the birth of Jesus.  So as typical people, we put up a tree, Santas, anything Christmasy and there are loads of presents for my nephew.  This year he is 17 months old and will enjoy opening his gifts...  Or so I predict.

I have to work tonight and tomorrow night, so sad I know!, but that's okay because I took the 26th-31st off!  My sister, her husband and their little boy will be coming in tonight.  I'll suffer the holidays with co-workers, we enjoy each other, and then be ready for family time...

I hope everyone will be spending Christmas with family and friends.  Be safe and eat healthy!

Stay beautiful,

Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara

A few weeks ago I was in Sephora, the store of evil because they have so much fun stuff to try, and wanted to see the price of the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.  It was only $10.00 USD so I decided to buy it.  There was only one black mascara left so I quick bought along with the Boscia nose strips.  


This mascara is said not to smear.  I have oily skin and I tend to smudge my bottom lash mascara often.  I have tried all the water proof mascaras and they all end up making me look like this:  


Not really but I feel like I look like that when I have mascara smeared on the under eye.  
I was impressed after wearing it for a couple of hours wearing it, I didn't have the mascara ring under my eyes.  I think it's worth it's money but I did find a few things wrong it with.
1.  The wand is so small it's almost difficult to use. 2.  The amount of product in the tube is not enough.
I guess that with bottom lashes it doesn't need such a large application but I'd rather g…
