But Is It Really Over?

What happens now? Do we have permission to breath, move on, and heal after this election. Or will there be another 4 years of division?

Best Mascara Around

I don’t know about you but I can’t bring myself to do it…….falsies. It looks great on you ladies, but spending that money on lash extensions and having to replenish them every few weeks is not budget friendly for me. I’d love to try it, but I can think of better things to spend money on instead of having furry creatures glued to my eyelids.

I haven’t worn much makeup since the world ended. There’s no where to go now where I have to put my face on, but if I do head out, mascara and lip gloss is my only makeup routine at the moment.

I have tried so many mascaras, from the drug store mascaras like Maybeline to the higher end ones like Better Than Sex by Too Faced. But when this baby is on sale I stock up.

Although I am currently invested in Latisse, a more natural approach to grow thicker and fuller lashes, I love my Superhero Elastic Stretch Mascara by the IT Cosmentics brand. It seperates lashes while creating the look of fuller and longer lashes. It stays on all day.

Throw it on and you are good to go.

Pros:

  • On sale now, (as of 8/23/20) for $18.75, regular price $25 (still cheaper than extensions)
  • Applies easily
  • Stays on all day
  • Lasts forever
  • Affordable

Cons:

  • Not available in waterproof, but it doesn’t matter. Unless you are swimming in a pool, it won’t run.

One more thing I must mention is the Bye Bye Makeup Remover from IT. Love, love, love! It literally melts the mascara off when you are removing it, without causing the racoon eyes look. A little dab and swipe, and the mascara melts off. I normaly use makeup remover cloth wipes, but there is no comparison now that I have this makeup remover. And it was a total accident how I stumbled upon it. When you order products right through the IT Cosmetics website, they often send you samples with your order, and the Bye Bye Makeup was one of those samples.

Pros:

  • Literally melts makeup off, absorbs quickly into a cotton ball or whatever you would use to take off makeup.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • No heavy scent or fragrance.

Cons:

  • Slightly greasy, but if you are washing your face afterward, it will come right off.

Right now, almost everything is 20% off on the IT Website. Some products are even up to 40%. Use my referral link to check out all of IT products.

Parent moment #90 something

Parenting is……

Waiting in line to get into the gift shop so the kids can buy junk. Child picks out popcorn. But for whatever reason puts the popcorn back on the shelf and decides on something else. Child gets in the car and starts crying and feeling remorseful for not getting the popcorn. Parents find another spot to park, dad waits in the car while mom waits in line for 10 minutes again to buy child the popcorn. Child eats barely a handful of the popcorn. Now it sits on the counter untouched as it goes stale.

I love parenting. But I will never do that AGAIN. Lesson learned

The only reason why it looks 3/4 full is most of it spilled out.
