A burning question......................

OK, I know that most people use their blogs for really deep meaningful thoughts and share important events in their lives. I really love reading those type of blogs. I wish I were elevated to such lofty ideals.....but I'm not.

My burning question....What kind of mascara do you love? I probably could bail out AIG all by myself from all of the $$$ I've spent on mascara. I know, I'm shallow, there is no depth to my soul.

Several months ago I was given a FREE Latisse to try because I work here. I love eyelashes. I admire eyelashes. I covet eyelashes. I stare at people's eyelashes. The Latisse has really worked, I was very skeptical, but have been very pleasantly surprised. I should have taken "before and after" pictures cause it's pretty noticable. Well, now I want the perfect mascara to make them appear even longer.


So, that is my burning question, what mascara do you absolutley LOVE?
Oh, and this soul-stirring post happens to be my 100th post. I think I should have a giveaway. I have a great gift in mind so stay tuned.

I haven't found the perfect one yet. For light moments, I do use the standard Maybelline in the pink with green cap. For more fuller lashes, I use define a lash.

I know there are better ones though. Wish I was more help.

I use Lancome (when I take the time to wear makeup) it usually come in the gift sets, so I don't really buy it so I am quit sure if I love it not. I too covet eye lashes. Rarely do I get mine to look like the pictures, but I do try. So maybe when I am RN (rich nurse--hahaha) I can afford it?!?!?!?!

BTW--MISS YOU!!!!! Thanks for the email. I will keep in touch.

I'm excited to know that Latisse worked! I wanted to ask the Dr. if I could have a prescription. I think it has to have a prescription for it doesn't it? I haven't found a great one yet? I've been using the new one that is fat and orange. I'm not at home to see what brand it is, but it's okay. Not a favorite yet. I'd love to know the answer to your question too. I'm about at the point wear i need to start wearing falsies :)

I haven't found one that I just love. I do like Maybelline's Fat Lash.

I like Covergirl Super-thick- lash. It's all red. I have long lashes, and this mascara doesn't smudge on me ( you know under the eyes.. I hate it ) so I have preferred this cheap o. I have tried a few different kinds, but always go back to it...

Happy 100th post!!

I change mascara like I change my underwear, EVERYDAY! No, really, I'm always using different mascara. So....I'd LOVE to know the consensus on what everyone says!

I get a mascara from Kohls called Flirt! Far out Lengthening Mascara and LOVE it...

Connie said...

I use MaryKay - I think it's called Ultimate. It doesn't smudge and it makes my eyelashes thicker, but I can't say that I Love it! Good, burning question though. I have wondered this same thing.

Cadance said...

I asked my Dr. for a prescription for that today...and he said I have to go to a dermatologist for that....I have eyelash problems sine the Bad car accident I was in...I can't wait to ask my dermatologist!

I LOVE Bourjois Pump Up The Volume Waterproof Mascara in Black. I used to buy it at Sephora...but have had trouble finding it lately...it is THE BEST!! If you come across some...PLEASE let me know where! I would stock up!!!

...and hey just in case you were thinking of buying the "Too Faced Lash Injection pinpoint mascara...DON'T...save yourself $20. It Sucks!

I forgot to say Congratulations on the 100 mark!!

Came back to see if anyone had any out standing answers to your deep meaningful thought on mascara :) Still wondering.

I too really like L'Oreal's lash out. It does pretty good on my little nubbins for lashes. I may have to branch out and try Latisse. Next time I see you, I'm takin' a gander at yer lashes...

Nana said...

Hey, I think that is one of the most important subjects in life! Since I look like Casper w/o it.

I use Avon Water Proof Mascara. I don't use anything else Avon. I just like the mascara.

My daughter taught ma a trick. Put on brown as your first layer then use black on top of that. Some girl at acting camp taught her that. I really don't know that it makes all that big of a difference but give it a try.

Mom, I do notice your beautiful long lashes....latisse did good.
I use 2 different kinds...maybelline volum' express first. I put some on the very tips after I curl, then wait a few seconds to let it dry...then apply along the entire lash. After a few coats, I use the maybelline full and soft. I have always used more than one. Sometimes up to 3 at a time. Like you said, more is better.
