In the winter, I frequently don't shave my legs for weeks at a time.

See, I actually do have almond shaped eyes. Still no go. Luckily, I got the curler for free.

You're very pretty!

I think I saw a pic of you before, but it wasn't your full face I don't think. You look like you could model or be an actress or something.

Thanks, Ninj! At first, I didn't know whose post you were answering. So I didn't say anything. I thought you were talking about the doggie in your siggy...lol

Dear CoverGirl:

I appreciate your zeal in releasing so many different colors and formulations of mascara in the recent months, but could you space it out a little better? I only have two eyes, and my mascara drawer is filling up. How much mascara do you all think I can try in a few months?

Regards,
Sagehen

ETA: I need for people to realize that sunscreen does NOT last all day. You need to reapply. Be ok with this.

New colors??!! What new colors?!!
The only new formula I want is the one that is exactly like Marathon Mascara which they had the balls to discontinue. Is there something like that in the new formulations?
I love new mascara even if it never lives up to Marathon.

Today is NOT a good makeup day. Not good at all.

I feel bad for anyone who has to look at me. For some reason, the mascara just on my right eye decided to clump BIG TIME. The other eye looks fine. I did what I could for the clumps, but some of them were very stubborn...

They just released a 24 version of the Lash Blast, with two colors I have not seen: Blue Black and Black Gold. They were BOGO 50%, so I copped them. I will try out the blue black this weekend. I am wondering if it's even darker than very black. Good times.

It's corporate armor for me (and I am a makeup junkie - I have to wear it because I keep buying it LOL)
And maybe they have basically good skin but with discolorations such as sunspots, melasma, or broken capillaries that they need to camouflage - that's my problem. Until I had those, except for eye makeup, I never wore more than powder on my nose, a little undereye concealer and blush. I wish I could still get away with that!

Ohhh, I love blue black. And maybe the 24 version will be a good non-flaky waterproof like Marathon was! I will give it a try.
I hate the modern plastic brushes (hey I admit I'm an old fogy) but I've kept a bunch of my old curved mascara brushes and sometime swap out perfectly with the new ones.
Thanks for the info!

Oh crap, I thought this was waterproof but it's not. bummer. I don't think I've tried the Lash Blast Fusion waterproof one tho, so maybe I'll give that a go.

Maybe I need to stop obsessing over mascara. : )

To the woman in that local news story who thought you looked so good with that swath of bright, frosty blue shadow right under your eyebrows then again down on your lids, um, you didn't!

That color would be bad anywhere, but you looked like a clown with that strip at the top, a 2-inch gap, and then more down on your lid. What's so sad is that you obviously had worked hard on that look !

I can only hope you saw yourself on the news and could really see it for yourself. Unfortunate for it to take such a public lesson, though.

Just sayin' . . . .

Prepare yourself. The LashBlast Fusion might turn you out - I know it has rocked my world. I immediately gave away all my previous tubes of LashBlast Mascara when I found this.

Siri types my posts for me.
I'm just the opposite - I'm very fair skinned and look like death with just neutral colors. I need some color.

I look so much better with a nice, bold-colored lipstick. Without it, people are always asking me if I feel OK. I can be fully made up without lipstick and just look so-so, but when I add that color at the end, it's like turning on a switch.

Me either. Even less so the older I get since the hair's becoming more sparse anyway. No one sees them except me, sadly, and I always wear pants.

Yes! I keep meaning to buy one! This section of the boards is going to make me go broke... The hair products section never really got me - I can get by with cheap hair products. But all these posts about makeup? Yeah, I already have plans for my next paycheck!

Okay, so it's not nuc-u-ler.

Or wait, is that atomic?
