in this issue, there was a lot of lashes talk. i loved towards the beginning where it has the beauty by numbers (page 34) all the facts about lashes.

i also loved the article about mascara (102). it's 5 pages. who wouldn't love it?
it was nice how they described the brushes for certain looks. i never really thought about the brushes being so important, but it makes sense. i was really surprised to see l'oreal's double extend on the "over the top" list.

i'm not too crazy about hilary swank


the joan rivers article was a waste of space.

OOOHH.. I need this ! Thanks for posting that, because I've always wanted to know what brushes did what.. the thinner brushes with short bristles always worked great on me with thin, long and light brown lashes.

Yeah, it bugs me too when I get my magazine so late. I just got mine today! Grrr


Anyway, I am not a Hillary Swank fan either. She either looks gorgeous or totally weird, there's no in between. She looks totally weird to me on this cover. And I love Allure but their covers are so freaking boring. It's always the same. They've been doing these close-up shots on the cover for like 2 years now! It's a pet peeve of mine. (Last month's Ellen DeGeneres did look amazing tho)

Love the lashes article!!! Tips on mascara, curling, and falsies! I want to try falsies but I'm afraid it'll be hard or look too theatrical. Anyone wear them in real life, other than at Halloween?

I found the Joan Rivers article kind of interesting but then as i read it started to scare me a bit! It reminded me of the movie "Death Becomes Her" where the women are immortal but their bodies keep falling apart and they have to fix them with spackle and stuff!


I haven't had time to read much else yet.

I LOVE it :icon_love ! I also subscribe to another shopping mag called Shop etc.... I will not renew, it is no where near Lucky for advice, etc...so get your butt out more often
& pick up Lucky! i love lucky.. they always know whats hot even before its hot

today at noon was the freebie giveaways for a new prescriptives foundation that comes out in august (which i was one of the first 500 or whatever the number was) and that honey scrub, it said all of them were given away already. i set my alarm at 11:45 to remind me every month LOL

back in february i think it was i was one of the first 500 to get the benefit zit concealer or something like that and i had my guy friend sign up for me, too, and i never got it! what a ripoff. let's see if i get the foundation.

Allure ALWAYS tells me that all are given away or the promo is over. I hate that. I saw the TAILORMADE ad though! oh my, those palettes look so nice.. MUST-RESIST-THE-PALETTES! just.say.no! NO! NOOOO!! grrr. i know this wont work..

Yeah, i get mine well after the issues are in the store. Whats worse is before i got a subscription, i would buy it early, forget i had it.. later in the month buy it again. and be like, wait? didnt i read this? GRRRRRRRRRRRR
