"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Jeepers Creepers!

I used to HATE wearing mascara. It made my lashes crunchy and always traveled to under my eyes making me look like I lost an eye punching contest.

Thankfully, technology has changed. Leading beauty manufacturers realized there were a ton of women not wearing mascara. That's like, a $7 product that millions of women are not spending money on!

I LOVE L'Oreal's Double Extend Mascara. I really do. I can wear it three days straight with barely any smudging. You're supposed to add the white part, then add the black (you don't even have to wait for it to dry!) and somehow, you don't end up with gray lashes. You end up with fabulous, long, eye opening and eye-drawing lashes. Feathery frames for your peepers!

It works so well, in fact, I usually skip the white part.

The best part? How it comes off! The mascara is actually some kind of bizarre almost plastic like formula which coats each lash. When you want to remove your mascara, just put your face in your shower stream for about ten seconds. They come off in little tubules! They don't smear all over your face! They're intact!!

I am a huge, huge fan of this product. What products do you like?

Not paid to promote- I just really, really like it. L'Oreal, you can send me some if you want! I'll do a giveaway for my fabulous readers! :)


  1. Haha, at first, I thought you were doing a paid blog. This is the strangest mascara I've heard of, but I just might try it. ;)

    I love the Sugar Lip Treatment from Fresh. Keeps your lips soft, moisturized, has SPF 15, and no waxy texture. www.sephora.com

  2. too funny, I've been meaning for the last month to ask on FB what everyone's favorite drugstore mascara is! I hate all mine right now! Thanks for the tip!!

  3. So funny you posted this. I love all make-up except mascara. Loathe mascara for all of the reasons you mentioned. It sets up my day to be really pissable. I am so loving that word.

    The beauty product I wouldn't trade is the Venus razor. I am a disaster looking for a place to happen. It is actually hard to cut yourself with that razor. I still tend to be careful doing my knees but I very rarely cut myself shaving anymore. Thank you Venus! They make one now that doesn't even require shaving cream. How about that?


Play nice.
