Lashes for dayysssss

Right Eye only...I wanted natural results and this balanced out my left lazy eye with regular mascara so...PROGRESS

From this point on I promise to only  talk about products that I really and truly believe in. I won't sell my soul for a free anything and I won't encourage you to seek out just any old product. This product is something that I truly believe in and I really want to share it with you. 

Okay. So I know that I'm pretty late on the uptake with this whole mascara game, but truthfully I was a little skeeved out by the whole Younique Fiberlash Mascara situation. I mean, who wouldn't want super long and full lashes without paying the hefty price of extensions right? Well, I'm here to tell you that the thought of having big giant spiders on my eyes really wasn't something that I thought would accentuate my features (a la lazy eye), so of course, I was extremely hesitant to every try it, because almost all reviews I saw of the stuff were on beautiful girls with flawless tan skin, naturally dark eyebrows and fantastic features. Basically, I believed that this was the final step to becoming a Kardashian and my alabaster skin, freckles and transparent eyelashes and eyebrows shuddered at the thought, because there is no worse look than crazy cakey eyelashes on pale ladies...televangelism has taught us all this life lesson (I'm looking at you,  Tammy Faye).  

But then my girl Becky was all like "Yolo it's time to live la vida loca" so I threw all caution to the wind and took a leap of faith, because YES my mascara game is that serious.

Now I'm not going to tell you that it changed my life, cured cancer, or found Jimmy Hoffa. It took me a slight learning curve, and a few You Tube tutorials but I did it. And you know what?

I love it.

Don't get me wrong, we are still totally in the honeymoon phase, but I've really enjoyed the way that it perfectly goes on smooth every time and it stays all day long.  My biggest fear was that it would be too much, especially for my lazy girl makeup routine (brows, lashes and lips) but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't overpower my face. Also, I've heard that some people complain that the fibers don't stay put but using the transplanting gel after every coat really holds them in place, so that was never an issue for me. I definitely think it's a keeper.  Plus, It comes in a really cool carrying case, which makes me feel extra fancy. I also think that it's really neat that you can layer it as many times as you want... from parent pickup line to date night with the hubs, you can use one product to get a ton of different looks. And ya'll know how I likes me a product that can multi-task.

Plus pretty eyelashes are an amazing accessory to my Two of a Kind- esque hair clip...Eat your heart out late 90's Mary Kate and Ashley.                          






And yes, I was totally channeling my inner American Apparel face for this pasty, freckly photoshoot. What can I say? Pale girls don't really have very many models to channel these days.
