Don’t tell me I’m the only one that falls for the “free” gift with purchase trap? Tell me I'm not the only one with a small make-up bag to go with every season?
So, today, I will share my cosmetic wisdom. Okay, maybe wisdom is not the right word. I will share with you my favorite products and maybe, just maybe, you’ll win a really nice prize at the end. I have always loved make-up. I remember when I was ten years old and got this for Christmas. This was on my favorite things list in 1981. Just seeing this box makes me want to bust out into the commercial theme song...fresh 'n fancy, fresh 'n fancy. This was not just a box of eye shadows, this was a make your own make-up and then put it in cute little bottles.
And yes, I knew I was getting it before Christmas because my CraftiMama hid it behind her headboard and I spotted it. Just for the record, CraftiMama was never really good at hiding the presents. Did anyone else get this?
Anyhoo, here it is...
My Favorite Mascara
Almay One Coat Nourishing Mascara
Now this is a great mascara and it only cost a mere $5.99 at your local Walgreen's. It doesn't run, it doesn't itch, it's not gloppy ( I know the use of the big cosmeseutical terms is quite impressive) and comes in two shades of black and one shade of brown. Do people really use brown mascara? Just wondering? Also, available in waterproof.
And with that recommendation you might think that I'm going to give away a tube of my favorite, trusty mascara, right? Wrong. If I had an extra tube of that mascara, I would keep it for myself. So, I'm going to give away a tube of mascara that I don't like. You see, every now and again, I'm lured by bright, shiny, pink packages. You see, one day, I was wandering through Walmarts and noticed a package of this mascara...
You can see why I was mesmerized by the awesome pink packaging. But it wasn't just the pink packaging...it was a twofer. Two pink tubes for the price of one! How could I refuse? It just had to be great. Well, it was okay. It's not that it was horrible, it just wasn't Almay. So, anyhoo, I still have the extra tube of Maybelline Define-A-Lash Volume Mascara. Never been opened! Oh, I know, this is almost as good as the Oreck vacuum that BooMama gave away on her blog.
So, I want to know, what kind of mascara do you use? For every comment your name will be entered into the great mascara bloggy give-a-way of 2008. I will randomly put all the names in a hat, and I will randomly draw one out.
P.S. To my sister, Tammy Faye, you can only enter one time.
