I need haaaaaaalp.

Ha!  I'm so glad that collection sold out quickly on Hautelook.  I need another mascara like I need a good poke in the eye, but I would have had a hard time saying no to that set.  That said, it was a great deal!

It's not the TheBalm higlighter.

 

 Michelle Phan said "it's something better" I'm glad it's not. I have the full size. I love it but i'd like to try something new. :)

I immediately want to know what all of those products are. Going to try and not set my sights high, though. I did that with Birchbox this month when I saw the BeautyBlenders and got my hopes crushed.

Holy flip-flop, I din't even know such a thing existed!!!  =)  I got the first thing in my BB, so I'd LOVE the second thing!  (Last month, I cancelled MyGlam and resubed before they shipped.  After I got it, I cancelled and resubed a few days later.  MyGlam(Ipsy), I just can't quit you!)

This is ME! I had to add The Balm one we received to the stash.(That  item is the reason I subscribed to ispy in the first place.) I have currently 4 mascaras in rotation right now. I have really wanted to try Benefit They're Real Mascara. I don't own anything from Benefit so this will be a great introduction piece. I do have a little of a mascara obsession. It is my "if you could only take one make-up product with you to a deserted island, what would it be" item. I am baffled that some people wear eyeliner but not a stitch of mascara. (and these are people who would "benefit" from wearing mascara!)

Actually looking through my stash, I should put myself on a no buy for while...after the holidays of course wink.gif

 

I just ordered 4 mascaras yesterday.  Tried something on a BigLots sale and LOVED it!  (LashBlastVolume.  It's got a stupid-huge brush, and my lashes are long and fat and CURLED LIKE CRAZY!)  Finally found a mascara I LOVED!  Went back and there was no more.  Had a hard time finding it, and thought it may be discontinued.  So yesterday a search turned it up on Drugstore.com.  BOGO 50% (although they only gave the half-price on one out of the four) and no shipping over $25.  Four of them turned out to be about $27.50, and then tax was another $2 or so.  It seemed a good idea to hoard.  Although it destroyed my October no-buy beauty attempt.

And by the way, I'm sure now I'll see that CG LBVolume's in every store I visit.  K-Mart, Walgreens, Target, Rite-Aid, Toys R Us, Ace Hardware...

I was sad that I missed the Hautelook mascara deal too and then I was GLAD they sold out. I have absolutely no will power when it comes to them.

HA!  I'll confess to doing that on select days - such as the days they have Urban Decay, theBalm, and a few purse/jewelery designers I'm especially fond of.

To make you less sad, I would say that you missed nothing because those mascaras often show up in GWP. They are not rare .

This means you can find lots of them on ebay and buy with low price.

I bought the They're Real mascara a few months ago, and it is pretty good stuff. The applicator wand took some getting used to, ie, I kept poking myself. But it did have quite the dramatic affect. I found myself using the wand from my fresh mascara to fluff it out so to speak. I wouldn't mind having a backup. Jmho. :-)

I have the full-sized Mary Lou-Manizer & the Betty Lou-Manizer. I don't use it much, but I guess I wouldn't mind an extra Betty Lou-Manizer to keep in case my foundation looks a bit light on me on some days.

    • Thank you Edith
    • You are a very thoughtful husband. I'm not an expert on makeup. But I love shopping. I was impressed with Sisley brushes, which are made by Raphael. Raphael has been a master maker of brushes for artists since 1793. The big department stores will give you an extra gift with purchase now too. For example, if you buy from Neiman Marcus, you can get a nice bag filled with beauty samples for free. That's what I would do.  I also love Trinny London. The T Kit is very unique, compact and great for travel or purse. Estee Lauder has a beautiful limited edition set called Brushed by Fame. The lovely white marble design might look pretty with your bathroom decor.  Good luck with your purchase!
