So good, you might have your eyelashes ripped out.

9 Jan

I’m a loyal person.  I’m loyal to restaurants (like the GAR chain).  I’m loyal to shoes (Tory Burch).  I’m loyal to lipstick colors (RED RED RED RED).

I’m also really loyal to make up brands.  I’ve been a MAC girl since I was in 9th grade, going to my first formal.  The MAC counter in our local Nordstrom did my makeup, and I bought my first red lip gloss.  (Sigh.  Memories.)

Since then, MAC has done my makeup for ever major life occasion.  Every formal.  Every birthday.  Every wedding.  I can’t comment on the people from the actual MAC store since my loyalty also extends to Nordstrom, but the girls working that MAC counter always do a phenomenal job.

(Siderant:  I found out the other week that they now CHARGE for makeovers.  Sigh.  That’s another reason I was so loyal.  I would always buy product when I got my face did, but it was nice knowing I didn’t have to commit to spending a certain amount (like in the actual MAC store), and the girls there always knew I’d come back and drop dolla bills when I actually had some to spend.  It’s like an era is over.  /endrant)

Okay.  So.  Brand loyalty. 

I’ve been blessed with super nice eyelashes.  My facialists always try to take off my eyelashes because they think they’re fake.  (The most painful complement ever!)  But, I still load on the mascara until my lashes are hitting my browbone and/or sunglasses.  (Isn’t that annoying though!?)

I used to only use MAC mascaras.  I know all the fancypants beauty editors SWEAR by Great Lash by Maybelline, but I’m sorry.  I firmly believe you get what you pay for.  I go between MAC’s Haute & Naughty and ZoomBlackFastLash (say that 2093 times fast) and False Lashes.

But, Estee Lauder hooked me up with a mascara sample the other day when I was asking seventeen hundred questions about one of their products, and HOLY COW, is this stuff amazing.  (Sidenote:  If you ever want to get free crap, just stand at a make up counter with a big smile, and ask twenty seven million questions about everything.  Finally, they will give you things just so you go away.)

It’s called Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara, and let me tell you girls.  You want fake lashes?  Just load this stuff on.  It does in like two coats what my MAC mascaras do in like four.  Plus, it’s only like $16, which is a small price to pay to have your facialist yank on your eyelashes.

I just realized it took me a long time rambling about random things to get to the point of my post.  Heh.  Welcome back, me.


Thanks for reading! You're the best!
